Weddings

The trumpet is a majestic and sonorous instrument and its resonant sound is the perfect musical compliment to the splendor and beauty of a wedding celebration. For many musical and practical reasons, it is also one of the most commonly used instruments at weddings. If you are interested in having me perform at your wedding or ceremony, please contact me directly.

As a professional, it is my job to make the process of arranging and planning the music for your ceremony or event as simple, personal, and easy as possible. Every wedding is as unique as the people and families involved in the ceremony, and the music is no exception to this. Whether prayerful or joyful, traditional or personal, I work to create and arrange custom musical programs that fit the tastes, personalities, and special ideas of each wedding couple. There are literally tens of thousands of musical works that could be used to set the right mood for your ceremony.

I am also equipped to arrange for the rest of the musicians for your wedding. Whether you’re looking for the grand sound of the organ, the tender sweetness of a string quartet, or with the regal majesty of the brass quintet, I can assemble just about any combination from a short list of the highest quality musicians available.
