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 made our wedding ceremony so very special. They NAILED a unique arrangement of David Bowie's "Space Oddity", that gave us and all of our guests chills. Both of them are talented beyond belief and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking to add layers of atmospheric wonder to their event.

Cannot thank them enough. Bravo!

Paul and Kerena were absolutely amazing and one of my most favorite and memorable parts of our wedding day. Guests were raving about them after wards. We had them play during both our ceremony and cocktail hour. We had a DJ for reception.

As our ceremony took place outside on the golf course at the country club, we wanted an instrumental sound that was soft, beautiful and not stuffy or too sharp. The combo of the cello and guitar was absolutely perfect.

We provided Paul with our song requests for the ceremony about 2 weeks in advance. We went with traditional ceremony music for the ceremony and a mixture of contemporary and cocktail music for the cocktail hour which took place right after, also outside. The only thing we needed to provide for them on the day was an electrical outlet/cord and 2 seats (in the shade) - super easy.

They arrived nice and early as the event they had scheduled earlier that afternoon finished earlier than expected which was so nice as they had even more time to set up and get comfortable with the space and surroundings. We didn't have them at the rehearsal which wasn't even necessary due to how professional they are. They know exactly what they are doing and are great at it!

In fact, about 20 minutes before the ceremony started, I asked Paul if he could change the song I was going to walk down the aisle to as I wanted Canon in D and we had initially requested that song to be what the bridal party walked down the aisle to. He said absolutely no problem, liked the idea and said they would come up with the perfect arrangement for the bridal party to walk down the aisle to instead. I'm so glad he was able to accommodate that change such last minute!

Highly recommend the Moeller's! Thank you Paul and Kerena:)

Paul and Kerena were fabulous! They were recommended to us by Rev. Dave Angle who officiated our wedding. We listened to a variety of their music online and decided to hire them. On the day of our wedding I walked down the aisle to them playing 1000 years. It was beautiful and made that moment so special. They played for our cocktail hour as well. Their quality and professionalism is a great value. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for ceremony, cocktail or reception music.

We were so impressed by these two, in so many ways! I actually happened across their website when I was trying to decide what kind of music we wanted for our wedding ceremony, and I was fascinated by the idea of a guitar-cello duo. I also loved that their repertoire included both classical and contemporary music, since we were learning more towards the contemporary route. I was thrilled to learn that they were actually available for our event!

Paul and Kerena were very responsive via email, helping us solidify our music choices for the ceremony. We had some specific (and perhaps somewhat unusual) requests for them in terms of exactly how the ceremony would flow, and they were more than happy to accommodate. We also asked them to accompany a singer during the ceremony, and our singer remarked to us later about how professional they were, saying that "they were a godsend." Their music brought tears to the eyes of myself and my groom, and probably most of the guests. (We received a number of compliments on the music from our friends and family). It was unbelievable. We felt like they were able to hit the sweet spot between traditional and contemporary with their style and music choices, which is exactly what we had in mind (emotional and memorable but not stuffy).

The music in our ceremony turned out better than we could even have imagined and I'd highly recommend these two to anyone. They have a beautiful and wonderfully unique sound, and are absolutely true professionals.

Paul and Kerena are awesome!!!!!!! From the beginning they were super professional and quick to respond. I love that they sample their music on their website. I hired them for my wedding ceremony at a Catholic Church. I didn't get to hear much because I was the bride, but my guests loved the music! People were talking about it even days later. Thank you so much Paul and Kerena!

Love,
Anna & Ken

Wonderful musicians! They provided the music for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in August 2016, and they were very professional, and brought beautiful music and a great atmosphere. They have so many music options and were quite helpful when I wasn’t sure on music for the ceremony. Having them play while the guests were arriving, and into the cocktail hour really made our wedding so fun! Highly recommend!

Paul and Kerena played for our daughter and new son-in-law's wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The wedding was held at Esplanade Lakes Ballroom and we had a beautiful day. The music for the ceremony was so meaningful and important to the bride and groom and Paul and Karena played each selection to perfection. They added the perfect background to the lovely ceremony and set the tone for the happy cocktail hour. We cannot thank them enough. Their music was just beautiful.
