Hi

Thanks for your interest in our music. As a Husband and wife duo, we create the rare and beautiful combination of the classical guitar and cello. We specialize in wedding ceremonies and cocktail/dinner hours.



For a wedding ceremony we block out one hour of music/time (this usually covers the prelude music as guests are arriving and being seated as well as the thirty minute ceremony). We then offer additional music for cocktail or dinner hours. We encourage clients to consider our two hour Ceremony/Cocktail Hour package. We have a very upbeat and fun cocktail hour repertoire which sets the perfect mood. We are often hired to perform for the dinner hour as well. We also provide our own sound system so the music can be heard clearly in any environment. If you have a special request we almost always can arrange it!



As of today we may have your date available. Once we have determined our availability you may download a contract from www.chicagoweddingceremonymusic.com, which requests one half of the total price as a deposit. Upon receipt of your signed contract and deposit the date will be secured.



You may download audio clips and view testimonials at www.chicagoweddingceremonymusic.com.

We have many sound clips for ceremony music on our web site. We also have a section for cocktail hour music with several sound clips in a variety of styles.



We also offer sound reinforcement for the wedding officiant and readers. Usually he or she will need a microphone and speaker to be heard clearly. This includes a wireless microphone which makes for smooth transitions and no cords to trip over. The cost for this service varies depending on how many microphones are needed. It makes all the difference because your family and friends will hear each word clearly. We have often seen weddings guests frustrated with not being able to hear clearly when no sound reinforcement is provided.



Please let us know if we may answer any questions for you or if you’d like to secure your date.



Best wishes,



Paul and Kerena Moeller

I cannot sing the praises of Moeller music enough! Lovely couple--lovely music. Paul and Kerena are warm, friendly people and so easy to work with. They played for my daughter's wedding ceremony on december 6th. The music was breathtaking! Many of our guests commented on how amazing the music was. Even the minister asked them for their business card because he thought they were so wonderful. You won't regret choosing them. In fact, you will be happy that you did!

We used Moeller Music for our wedding ceremony at Salvage One. I was looking for something a little different then the traditional string quartet, the combination of Cello and guitar was perfect for our Romantic Fall Wedding! We chose more contemporary songs over traditional music and Paul and Kerena executed it perfectly. They offer a great selection of songs and were happy to learn a song I requested that was not part of their original list. I would recommend listening to the demos on their website so you can hear for yourself how beautifully they perform together. They are a pleasure to work with and you will not be disappointed if you choose them to perform at your wedding.

I. Can't. Even. Say enough to truly express how wonderful these two musicians are. Paul and Kerena played for my wedding this past October at Wilder Park in Elmhurst. Music is incredibly important to me and, in my opinion, the most influential element to setting a particular mood and ambiance. As a professional musician myself, I always intended to have FABULOUS music at my wedding ceremony. Turns out, Paul and Kerena not only met my high standards, but exceeded everything I'd dreamed of having for my ceremony and walk down the aisle.

Their playing and musicianship are exquisite and completely on point. I will be eternally grateful for the music they played as I walked down the aisle. They learned a new song for me, one not already in their extensive repertoire that was very special to my husband and me. It made my walk down the aisle one of the most incredible moments of my life. It. Was. Gorgeous. Thank you thank you thank you, Paul and Kerena.

And as if the music itself wasn't wonderful enough, Paul was incredibly professional, quick to respond to my lengthy and annoying emails, easy to deal with and so accommodating. After going through the entire wedding planning process, I've learned how rare and valuable that sort of wedding vendor is. After some very unfortunate and - dare I say horrific - interactions with one of my other vendors, I cannot express how much I appreciated the way Paul handled the entire operation. It was EASY.

If I could have done one thing differently, knowing what I know now, I would've paid the completely reasonable additional charge for them to play during our cocktail hour. We of course were simply trying to refrain from more financial add on's to our wedding celebration. Turns out, it would have been worth it. Our guests were also floored by how beautiful the music was. They would have LOVED to hear more of them.

Ok I'll stop rambling. Thanks again, Paul and Kerena! I'll be raving about you to everyone

Paul and Kerena provided the music for my ceremony and cocktail hour. When I first listened to their website recordings I got tears in my eyes because they are so talented. Their music is beautiful and elegant and you would be crazy not to hire them. Their song choices include traditional as well as contemporary and are quite numerous. They even learned a song that I requested just for my ceremony. There is nothing these two can't do and their music is just perfect.

I hired the Moeller duo to perform music for my outdoor wedding ceremony at the Grove in Glenview. They play a wide selection of songs and their list is available on their website, which is very easy to use. They were very easy to get in touch with before the wedding and responded to e-mails quickly. Their performance added such a nice touch to our wedding, many of our guests got teary-eyed during the processional because of the music!

I am so happy we chose Paul & Kerena Moeller to play at my daughter’s wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! I fell in love with their sound and the beauty of their music from listening to their website but the real live performance was so amazing. It was touching and haunting and just beautiful. Paul was able to play special music for the ceremony that our officiate requested and it was wonderful. Then they played for the cocktail hour and oh my, the songs were fun and charming and provided the perfect background for an elegant but relaxed cocktail party. I could have listened to them all night but since my daughter and her husband hired a large band for the dinner/party it really worked out great. Our guests enjoyed the entire evening with music for everyone.

Also, the Moellers were so easy to work with and professional in every way. When they transitioned from the ceremony location to the cocktail party, they were so fast that our guests were surprised to see them already playing! Our friends and family were so impressed by them and enjoyed every minute they played.

Please take my advice and book these artists. I know that when my next daughter gets married, I will run to them and book them immediately!

The quality of music from the Moeller musicians is just beautiful. It added so much to our wedding ceremony and provided the exact ambience we wanted. Paul and Kerena were scheduled to play at our wedding but Kerena had to fly overseas just before our wedding to attend to important family matters so she was unable to play at our wedding. Paul informed me of this right away and assured me that the replacement cellist would be just as good, and he was right. The music was absolutely perfect on our wedding day. Unforeseen circumstances do occur sometimes but Paul made sure that everything still went according to plan.

We used the Moeller Music Duo for our outdoor wedding ceremony in the Women's Park & Gardens in Chicago. The entire ceremony and reception was outside and the music was amazing. Our guests loved the sounds and music selections of the Moeller Duo. They are very easy to work with, on time, professional and most importantly talented musicians. We would highly recommend using them for any event. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable!

Kerena and Paul were absolutely magnificent! We changed our ceremony location a few months after signing our contract and they were extremely accommodating with shifting the time a bit and the location. We were very appreciative of how smooth they made the entire process. Needless to say, their performance was exceptional and made the whole ceremony an emotional event for our friends and family.
