Penguin Music performed for my sister's wedding four years ago, so when it was time for me to get married the decision to use them again was easy since they are amazing! The whole process was seamless from start to finish. They are very organized and always responsive. We worked with them on picking ceremony songs that represent us as a couple and they totally nailed it! We didn't give them a ton of direction on the prelude choices. We told them that we favored classical tunes and let them run with it. After experiencing two weddings with them it's really clear that Chris & Steven are extremely talented musicians. My sister chose less traditional song choices (their recessional was "Don't Stop Believin') and they were equally as awesome with that genre. Our guests all commented on how beautiful the music was and they really enjoyed having a form of entertainment while they were waiting for the ceremony to start. It really set the tone and kicked the day off on a great note. I couldn't be happier with my experience with them! You will not be disappointed if you choose them for your wedding/event. Thank you Chris & Steven for helping to make our wedding the most perfect day!

My husband and I hired Penguin Wedding Music to perform the music for our wedding ceremony. They had to learn two new songs for the event, and did not disappoint! They sounded absolutely beautiful and really added to the special day. Our guests did not stop raving about their performance. I'd definitely recommend them to other couples looking for live music for their ceremony (and even for the cocktail hour). We did not need them for the cocktail hour, but if we did we definitely would have used them.
