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

Paul and Kerena were absolutely amazing! We had Moeller Music perform for both our Ceremony and Cocktail Hour. A big ask from us was to have some non-traditional music. They did a really great job at meeting this request of ours. We gave them a few songs to work from and then took care of the rest (e.g. -- The Pretenders: I’ll stand by you; Astaire: Cheek to cheek). There performance was so well done that after the weekend was over, our guests were coming up to us saying how great Paul and Kerena were. We were so pleased. Most importantly, they were very responsive to all our emails and questions. They really went the extra mile to help make our day extra special. True professionals. 100% recommend these two for ceremony music and a classy cocktail hour.

I couldn’t help but end with one quick anecdote from the day (probably our favorite moment from the wedding!) During the cocktail hour, our ring bearer (who, keep in mind, is 1 and half years old) came up to Paul and demanded to strum along with him on his guitar. Paul was so so amazing with our ring bearer! He let him play and everyone at the cocktail hour just melted cause of how cute it was! It was such a special moment and Paul was so great playing along with him.

Paul and Kerena played our New Year's Eve wedding and they were outstanding. They played both the ceremony and cocktail reception and it was just lovely. They were professional from start to finish and our guests just loved them. We had so many people come up to us to specifically comment on the ceremony musicians! Highly recommend to anyone. They are very talented and their sound together was exactly what we were looking for. They also have a very easy website and songs you can listen to if you want to know what they sound like. Thanks again Paul and Kerena!

Paul and Kerena (Moeller Duo) played at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and we are beyond happy we spent a little extra money to have them at both parts of our special day. Their music was beautiful and added so much to both the ceremony and cocktail hour. What was most remarkable about them was how little prep/time they needed from my husband and I. All we did was send them our song preferences and our ceremony, and they were beyond professional and played everything perfectly. I would highly recommend them to anyone, and cannot wait to get our video back so we can hear their beautiful music again.

Absolutely Beautiful! We cannot say enough about how absolutely beautiful our ceremony music was as performed by the Moeller Duo. It gives me chills just thinking about it and so many of our guests commented on how perfect it was before, during, and after the ceremony. If you are looking for a breathtaking performance, you should consider this group. They were outstanding, professional, and worth every dollar! I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

Our experience with the Moeller Cello and Guitar Duo was so seamless. They were very quick to respond to any emails or questions we had. Their website is very helpful and has audio clips of the many songs in their repertoire. We loved their style of music and knew it would provide a perfect ambiance for our wedding ceremony. We had a traditional Catholic ceremony and Moeller provided the prelude, entrance, ave maria, and exit music. Our guests loved the music!

They have a wide list of songs from traditional to modern that would fit any type of wedding ceremony or event. My husband and I actually had a difficult time picking the 5-6 songs needed for the ceremony, we loved them all. The combination of the acoustic guitar and cello is so beautiful and moving. We would highly recommend them for any wedding or special event.

The Moeller Duo were absolutely amazing! They were very responsive via email (I'm an out-of-town bride) and very flexible with any requests I had. They performed the music for the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and the father/daughter dance. After the wedding, all of my guests commented on how much they loved the music they played. I only wish I could have heard more of it! Highly recommend them.

There is no need to look any further for ceremony music. Walking down the aisle with my father to their instrumental version of “In My Life” was one of the most impactful moments I've experienced. Paul and Kerena really helped bring the feel of our wedding we wanted. It wasn’t stuffy, or cheesy or inherently cliché. They really added something to our wedding that I doubt we could have gotten anywhere else. My only regret is not recording our ceremony so I could hear their music again.

My background: To give context to this review, I'm not a professional musician by any stretch, but have played (and performed) music my whole life and am probably more appreciative to great musicianship and less patient with musical errors or less polished performances.

The task: I (the groom) was put in charge of music for the ceremony AND cocktail hour. Our wedding was to be elegant, sophisticated; not over-the-top or 'trying too hard'. My fiancee heard their Schubert rendition of Ave Maria and immediately started tearing up. Score.

We also had a single rule when looking at vendors: Only work with professionals because that's who you rely on the day-of. My fiancee & I had an initial call with Paul to get to know each other and it was effortless. Paul appears to be the face of Moeller music and he's just an easy going, transparent professional. Let me say it again: PROFESSIONAL. No drama, no sales, no hidden fees, no ego, etc. Pure, honest, service. They UNDERSTAND wedding logistics. Many musicians do weddings 'on the side' and will make key errors. In our case, we had an outdoor ceremony and Paul shared that they had sufficient speaker power to overpower any wind or sound diffusion concerns.

Day-of-wedding: They showed up on-time, dressed in wedding appropriate attire which was awesome (they looked like guests to our event!). (Kerena is rarely mentioned, but she was lovely to talk to and of course listen to) Their performance was identical to the website and were a critical part of our day. Their performance will be remembered (and talked about) by many guests for years to come.
