"Kyle, We would like to thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. We really appreciate you taking the time to learn 'Groovy Kind of Love.' Our ceremony would not have been as perfect if it weren't for you and your talent!" Josh & Joni, 9/26/15
Frequently Asked Questions
Please read our list of Frequently Asked Questions to get a better idea of our services. Feel free to email us at email@example.com or call 904-502-5526 for any other questions.
How much do you charge for a wedding ceremony? I charge on a per-musician basis. My "per musician" rate is all-inclusive, so there are no extra contracting or service fees. My "home" territory is Palm Coast-Amelia Island, FL. Travel fees may be required for weddings outside of my "home" area. My services may also be included in a wedding package through some coordinators and/or venues.
What does a wedding ceremony include?A ceremony includes up to 30 minutes pre-wedding music and anything during the ceremony through the recessional. Anything beyond that (i.e. cocktail hour, dinner, etc.) is charged on an hourly basis.
Will you play for the cocktail hour?Yes, upon request and availability for an additional charge.
Do you perform at dinner parties and other events?Yes. Dinner parties and other events are priced on a "per musician" basis as well.
What types of music do you play?I play mostly classical if you request solo violin or any string ensemble. For example, music you might hear at an upscale restaurant, such as Vivaldi, Mozart and Bach. The violin/guitar duo allows for more variety of classical, jazz and pop music. The string trio and string quartet can also accomodate many pop music requests.
Do you personally perform at every wedding and who are your other musicians? Wehner Weddings provides music for over 250 weddings per year. I may have 2-15 weddings running on any given weekend, so I am personally not available for each one. I do personally handle all correspondence for every wedding from the first time we meet through to the wedding day. I have a staff of over 60 professional musicians. All of my musicians are full time professionals with a degree in their instrument. Many of my musicians are core members of the Jacksonville Symphony and/or other Florida and Georgia Orchestras.
Can you accompany my vocalist/s during the ceremony?This may vary depending on the instrumental arrangement. Solo violin does not make for good accompaniment, but other instrument arrangements may work. For example, the violin/piano or violin/guitar may work for accompaniment because you can get a full, well-balanced harmony from those arrangements. Even with the right instruments, it all depends on the song chosen and access to the music. For solo violin, I usually advise the use of recorded background music for vocalists.
Will you price match if I find a lower price through a different company? My pricing is non-negotiable. All of my musicians are seasoned professionals. Please feel free to research my reviews on wedding websites such as Wedding Wire or ask the venue or vendors you are working with if they know anything about the quality of my services. I feel that my services and musicians are the best in the area and I stand behind my product and pricing.
Do you come to the rehearsal?No. I can provide answers to any questions regarding the ceremony prior to the ceremony. I am available via phone or email to answer any questions leading up it.
What do you wear?A standard, black tuxedo with a black vest and tie, unless otherwise requested.
Will you play outside? Yes, provided there is a "Plan B" in case of rain. Violins do not take well inclement weather (i.e. rain).
Will you perform on the beach?Weather permitting, yes
What happens if you are sick and can't make the wedding? My contract guarantees that your music is taken care of, if not by me, by another qualified professional within Wehner Weddings. Otherwise, a full refund will be issued.
Do you require a deposit?Most contracts require a $100 non-refundable deposit. We deduct that from the total balance.
Can I pay with a credit card?Yes, I accept credit cards, cash, or checks.You may also make payments using the PayPal link on my Home page.
Can I hear some samples of your music?You can browse a wide-range of our music on our website. "Music Samples" portion of this website.
