What to expect the day of the ceremony:
We will arrive approximately 30 minutes before we are scheduled to begin the prelude music. We will require armless chairs set up in an adequately lit location with plenty of space for movement. We will provide our own music stands.
We will need to know the name of the coordinator or officiant to ask a few questions and will need someone to cue us when it is time to end the prelude and begin the actual ceremony. We may also need to be cued for specific events within the ceremony. For example, we don’t want to start playing the piece for the procession of the bridesmaids if they are not all lined up and ready to go! An unobstructed view of the entrance of the wedding party and the altar area make it easier for us to correctly time the beginning and ending of our pieces. A wedding program and/or script is also extremely helpful.
