A Note on COVID-19:
We will provide a full refund for weddings canceled or modified due to public health concerns, no matter how close to the event that call is made. We fully support whatever decisions families need to make to keep us all safe. Our musicians are strongly encouraged to follow the physical distancing guidelines posted by the Mississippi Department of Health.

$200 per musician (total for duet is $400, total for trio is $600, etc.). Includes 30 minutes of Prelude music and all Ceremony music.
Prelude, Ceremony, & Reception (two additional hours of music)

How Many Musicians Should You Hire?
Completely up to you! Check out our audio page for samples of different size ensembles. If you're looking for a recommendation, we love trios (two violins & cello) because you get the melody, harmony, and baseline. For full four-part harmony, we are also available to provide a full string quartet (two violins, viola, & cello).
How to Reserve Date
To hire us for your event please call or text Kate Morgan at (601) 323-2312 or send an email to StringMusicforMSWeddings@gmail.com. A $50 non-refundable deposit (applicable to your total payment) is required to reserve your date. Full payment and a finalized song list are due two weeks before the wedding. At the two-week mark the payment is non-refundable (COVID NOTE: this policy is currently suspended (a full refund will be made any time prior to event). Payment can be made via Venmo, PayPal, or check.
We frequently travel up to 2 hours outside of the Jackson area. If you are outside that range, please feel free to still contact us if you are unable to find musicians in your local area. Traveling 30 minutes to an hour outside of the Jackson metro area (such as to Vicksburg) typically adds $25 per musician. Traveling approximately 90 minutes outside of Jackson (such as to Hattiesburg or Philadelphia) typically adds $50 per musician. Please share with us your exact event location for a final quote.
For ceremonies that fall on or adjacent to major holidays, the cost per musician increases to $300 (New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Fourth of July weekend etc.)
The Day of the Wedding
We arrive 30-45 minutes prior to the start of Prelude. Please designate a person (often the wedding director) to give us a signal for when to switch from Prelude to the first song of the ceremony (often the Seating of the Parents/Grandparents). We will need armless chairs set up where you would like us to play. We would love to be put in contact with any other musicians you have performing at your wedding, as well as your wedding coordinator. We do not typically attend the rehearsal the evening before.
