Weddings & Events
~Serving the San Juan Islands and Beyond~
I am available as a violinist (or a singer/guitarist) to play for weddings, special events, parties, and memorial services. Drawing from classical, romantic, contemporary, popular, Irish-Celtic, gypsy, and old-time American folk influences, I seek to capture the character of the place, occasion, and people for the events I play at. Depending on your desires, I am able to play specific songs as requested, choose from a selection of my favorite songs, or perform an improvised set drawing from whatever musical genres you select. I am always willing to give suggestions, if you are unsure! My ultimate goal is to provide you with music that will carve a beautiful memory in your mind and celebrate this tender moment in life. I feel so honored in being chosen to do so.
My basic wedding package includes the following:
-20 minutes preamble as guests are arriving,
-Bridal party and family procession (1-3 songs),
-Bride procession (1 song),
-Ceremonial Song (1 song), and
-Exiting procession as ceremony ends (1-2 songs).
All songs and musical styles are your choice, and there is no additional fee for learning new songs. The price also includes travel time, fuel, and ferry costs from leaving my home on Lopez Island to San Juan Island, Orcas Island, or Shaw Island.
Sliding Scale Inter-island : $275 - $340
Sliding Scale Lopez Island : $215 - $275
Upon booking a date with me, you will be required to pay a $50 non-refundable deposit, which will go completely toward your total cost. The deposit ensures that I have blocked off the date for you and that I am prepared to play for your event. If you cancel, I reserve the right to keep the deposit.
In addition to weddings, I am also available for memorial services, parties, dinners, special events, and more. I am also available for events in Anacortes, Mount Vernon, Bellingham, and more.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I wish for everyone to get the music they deserve!
