Wedding Music

Wedding Music by Prin

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding celebration!

As a certified wedding planner and piano player for weddings, I am happy to coordinate your wedding music.

Please, fill out the form below for more specific information about wedding music.

Wedding Music Information:

I offer wedding ceremony music and wedding cocktail hour music in New Jersey and New York. I’m also available to provide music during your reception dinner for ambiance. I can also be part of a musical ensemble or band as a keyboard/piano player.

Wedding Music in New Jersey – Rates

Rates: (some exceptions apply)

$200 for wedding ceremony and cocktail hour instrumental music (roughly 2 hours of music)

$150 cocktail hour only (up to 1.5 hours of music)

$50 for additional singing during ceremony and/or cocktail hour

$50 per additional hour

I do NOT charge travel fees in New Jersey or New York, EXCEPT when your wedding venue exceeds 2 hours of travel for me OR if there is a gap between your ceremony and cocktail hour that is longer than 1 hour. We can discuss these details further.

My Equipment:

If your venue has a piano – yippee!

I do expect it to be tuned. 😉

These days, with outdoor weddings and unique wedding venues, I’m completely portable though. I do need an outlet! I use a Yamaha digital piano with a stand (I bring my own piano bench). I also have two amps and a portable mic system. I can plug into a venue’s sound system, but most of the time, I don’t need to do so for intimate affairs.

If for some reason, we need a backup plan, I have an “old school” battery-backed Casio keyboard that I lug along with me in case the power goes out on your wedding day and all electricity fails! We hope that doesn’t happen, of course. 😉

Song Lists:

I offer an extensive offering of song lists. Please, contact me for requests and samples. I’ve played religious and secular weddings, and I’m very much able to create unique arrangements of popular songs to make them “appropriate” for a ceremony or cocktail hour. Whether you want a traditional song or a classic rock instrumental, I will probably never say no to any of your requests! My own musical tastes are broad and I have song lists in every genre.

A Few Wedding Ideas:

1. I am able to perform with other musicians and vocalists. I can also recommend other musicians for your wedding day.

2. If you’re not sure how to plan ceremony music, just ask me. I can handle all of it and plan a traditional or modern ceremony. I also do full masses and liturgical songs for church wedding music.

3. If you have no idea what to play during cocktail hour, I will likely create a song list that blends classical instrumentals, standards (think Sinatra), Broadway (old and new), 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and current radio hits and indie finds. My goal is to make everyone from your flower girl to your grandma enjoy, at least, one song! That should be your goal, too. 🙂

4. Cocktail hour should be 1 hour, but many venues allow for guests to show up early. I account for that in my rate. I always assume that I need to play a few minutes before and after the agreed upon time at no extra cost.

Please, contact me on how to let music make your special day even more beautiful! Best of luck to you and your future spouse.
