Request any song or genre. Stephanie knows that some brides dream about having that certain special song in their wedding. Her flexibility gives couples the freedom to request those favorite pieces for any part of the ceremony, including processional, mid-ceremony, and recessional. She can quickly master requests for anything from hymns to classical to rock music in order to make each wedding ceremony unique.

She also knows that some brides and grooms prefer to simply suggest a genre (such as “Classical”, or “Celtic”) for their wedding ceremony music and then leave the selection in Stephanie’s hands, in which case she artistically and tastefully selects music from her repertoire to fit the ceremony.

Ceremony music can be that easy!


Contact Stephanie to set up an appointment at her home or online to discuss the vision for your wedding ceremony music. She will give a “mini concert” so you can hear her live, and she can offer recommendations on music for each part of your service. If you want to pick your songs at the consultation, great! Otherwise if you have a specific song idea you’d like to hear, a YouTube video you really like, or even sheet music, feel free to bring it along.


A standard ceremony includes:

30 minute prelude
Bridal party & bridal processional
Ceremony music

*There is a $400 minimum for any wedding ceremony; $150 non-refundable deposit secures the performance date. The balance is due two weeks before the event. Prices do not include rehearsals, mileage beyond the St. Paul/Minneapolis area, or cartage.
