For your wedding ceremony, the shimmering tones of the hammered dulcimer combine with the soulful voice of the violin for a special emotional connection with the music. Our wedding ceremony rate is $350.

Our music is also the perfect background for your wedding reception.  Ranging from toe-tapping jigs and lively reels to soothingly beautiful airs and lilting waltzes, the variety of our repertoire will add interest that enhances without intruding.  Our rate for reception music is $200/hr ($250 if hired for only one hour) .

Listen to samples of our music on the Music Samples page. We also can send you a wedding sampler CD that includes samples of suggested processional and recessional pieces as well as suggestions for mid-ceremony meditation music.  And of course, we are happy to try to accommodate your special (for example, classical) musical requests. 

Here are some comments from our wedding clients:

"Thank you guys so much for making our wedding the most memorable weekend of our lives.  Put me at the top of your list for referrals!"

        Jesse and Alix Norris

"Our wedding day was truly as wonderful as everyone promised.   One of the most special memories, which still takes my breath away was when I was standing at the bottom of the aisle with my arm linked in my Dad's and I heard Bill and Becky's music begin to play.  It was so beautiful, so peaceful and so very special that it set the tone and mood of the entire day.  I know that our wedding day would have been a happy one for us under most circumstances but I can honestly say that Bill and Becky's  musical gifts made our special day magical"
      Aideen (and Paul) Leo

"Everyone at our reception loved your music. I must tell you, you two are the hidden gem of DC when it comes to wedding music. I will recommend your music in a heart-beat. "
