We draw upon the world's secular and religious traditions,
respecting the perspectives of both doubter and believer.

“Vern worked with us 
to design the kind of 
ceremony we wanted, 
with excellent suggestions. 
We were really pleased. 

“Our families, from different backgrounds, were thrilled, 
and our friends keep talking 
about how special 
the wedding was.”

Music -- live and recorded

For many reasons, many couples prefer live music. 

Here are some of the musicians I've worked with happily who understand how weddings flow best.

Flute and Guitar (either or both)

Kathy Riegelman and Larry Beekman

Flute and Harp Duo
   FLUTE -- Judy Johnson.
   HARP -- Wesley Kelly

Recorded music

Pilgrim Chapel is able to assist you if you wish to employ recorded music. In this case, I suggest you choose someone as your “sound engineer” to cue the music as you wish.
