AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
We have been performing at weddings for 20 years, at more than 50 venues and more than 30 houses of worship. Our familiarity with so much wedding music will set your mind at ease.

You choose the ensemble: solo, duo, trio, quartet, or quintet. Planning a traditional ceremony? You can enter to the Pachelbel Canon in D, and exit to the Trumpet Voluntary played joyfully by trumpet and strings. Or choose your own Processional and Recessional. We are flexible. At one memorable wedding ceremony we played all Beatles! You don't need to choose all the music; we are the experts so leave it to us. At your cocktail hour, enjoy a mix of classical plus contemporary selections such as You're Beautiful, Make You Feel My Love, All You Need Is Love, and A Thousand Years.

If you want us to play a special song, and if we can obtain the music on the internet, there will be no fee. Jim Paradies can play a fanfare on his trumpet to announce the bride's walk down the aisle. We love witnessing the excitement on guests' faces at that important moment!

Prices vary according to duo, trio, quartet, quintet, number of hours, and travel distance. Our prices are competitive within today's market, based on our professionalism and experience.

We look forward to "playing a part" in your wedding!

We had the honor of having the Paradies Ensemble play at our Ceremony and cocktail hour this past Saturday up in Roxbury NY. They were absolutely amazing! They even learned A Whole New World for us (our first date was Aladdin on Broadway). They were such a pleasure to work with and their beautiful music made our day extra special. We can't say enough good things about this group, we highly recommend them for your event. Thanks again Paradies Ensemble!
