The base price for your event includes the consultation, the ceremony and travel up to 25 miles from my home in Berkeley. A deposit (towards the Base Price) is required to hold your date.
After you contact me and if I'm available for your event, I will hold your date for 5 days, after which a deposit of $50 is required. Note that the final amount is due 10 days before the event.
Consultations last 30 to 45 minutes and can be done either over the phone or at my house in Berkeley. During the consultation we decide on the music selections, attire and other details of the ceremony.
The Ceremony includes 30 minutes of prelude music, all ceremonial music (e.g. processional, recessional, meditation), and up to 15 minutes of postlude music as needed.
This includes uncommon music that I would need to learn specially for your ceremony, but which is not considered standard for wedding ceremonies.
Examples of theme attire are Renaissance and other period costumes. Fee depends on rental price, etc
The fee for travel varies with distance and travel time from Berkeley. I charge $0.40 per mile, plus $10 per hour of driving. I will include a quote for the travel fee when provided with the location; the travel time and distances are taken from mapquest.com.
My harp is a unique, custom made instrument, and unfortunately is aged prematurely by exposure to the elements. The outdoor fee goes towards maintenance of the harp to remedy this aging.
This applies to cases where I need to set up again in a different building from the ceremony to the reception.
The full catholic mass is significantly longer than other ceremonies, and requires much more musical coordination, such as working with the cantor.
