How does your service stand out?

Do you want classical or contemporary music to set the mood for your South Florida wedding ceremony? Do you want help picking the right songs for your South Florida wedding? Do you want your South Florida wedding musicians to be experienced, easy to work with, accommodating to your requests, and within your price range? Do you want your South Florida wedding to be memorable and better than you could've imagined? Hi! My name is Vivien. I know how frustrating it can be to find the right wedding musicians in Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami. If you're like most couples, you think you only have a few choices when it comes to songs for your ceremony. Either you can hire live musicians who'll give you a limited selection of songs to choose from, or you'll have to resort to using an iPod. You're already feeling really busy and stressed out with wedding planning. There are so many professional wedding musicians in South Florida that you're feeling overwhelmed because you're not sure what to do or who to call. What you really need is someone who will take the time to get to know you and your unique journey as a couple, listen to your amazing wedding vision, and inspire you with songs that will create the perfect atmosphere for your special day. Maybe you love: Classical music - "Canon in D," "Bridal Chorus," and "Wedding March" Contemporary songs - "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," "All I Ask of You," and "You Raise Me Up" Christian wedding hymns - "Your Mighty Love" and "Just As I Am" u. Jewish wedding songs - "Sunrise, Sunset" and "Dodi Li" All-time favorite standards - "La Vie en Rose," "Fly Me to the Moon," and "All You Need Is Love" Modern songs - "Marry Me," "Thinking Out Loud," and "A Thousand Years" Whatever style you envision for your wedding day, I'll help you create an experience that's unique, memorable, and totally you. Schedule your FREE Wedding Music Consultation with me to learn how to create the ideal ambiance for you and your guests to make a lifetime of memories. During your consultation, you'll be able to see if we're a good match, and you'll also discover that planning your wedding music can be stress-free and fun! You'll get to pick all the wedding songs you love, have them professionally arranged for you, and hear them played on the acoustic instruments/ensemble of your choice, ensuring that your special day will be a reflection of who you are. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Vivien Li of Music For Every Occasion provided the music at our wedding on March 18, 2016. It took place at the lovely and historic Stranahan House. Vivien worked with us to select exactly what we wanted, which was classical. She and three other musician ( to include clarinet, oboe and bassoon along with Vivien's flute ) comprised a wind quartet that was wonderful. She played Bach, Mouret and Handel, just as we wished. The skill of these musicians is terrific. Her playing created an elegant atmosphere in an already fabulous setting. We recommend Music For Every Occasion without hesitation. It is delightful.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Vivien at the university level and in various performance venues. She is an outstanding musician, educator and a true professional. On a more personal note, Vivien is one of the most kind, caring individuals I have even known. Her great drive, passion and determination is a real asset for anyone privileged enough to come into contact with her. She has my highest recommendation.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We’re comprised mainly of Florida Atlantic University music students and alumni with Bachelor of Music or Master of Music degrees. We bring over a decade of experience performing at weddings and special events throughout Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami. We combine our love of music with a passion for event planning to provide the perfect soundtrack for your most cherished moments.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We offer 3 fully-customized packages to help you cherish every moment of your wedding day. All our packages include live musicians, guidance on music selection, special song requests, venue coordination, and unlimited phone and e-mail consultation. For South Florida couples, you can also opt to have an in-person consultation. (Skype consultations available for out-of-town couples.)
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It all began in 2011 when I (Vivien) moved back home to Margate. After teaching English in China for two years, I wanted to pursue my master of music degree in the United States. While applying for schools, I worked as a freelance flutist and teacher. I connected with old friends, made new ones, and began brainstorming how we could combine our passion for music with helping people create unforgettable memories. Then, after performing together for Beauty and the Beast at Calvary Christian Academy, I shared my idea with violinist Rose Renee, violist Kailii, and cellist Sam - create a team of musicians offering highly-personalized service for weddings and special events. We created our first YouTube video in January 2013, met with our first clients in February, and played for our first wedding on May 3. Since then, our team has grown and our goal remains the same – deliver incomparable service to provide the soundtrack for your most cherished moments.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Our clients are passionate about live music and cherishing every moment.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
There is no comparison to the beauty and elegance of live musicians on your special day - providing the perfect soundtrack for your ceremony, entertaining your guests during your cocktail hour, and serenading you during your first dance. Live music will allow you to personalize your wedding in a way that's meaningful to you, creating memories that will last a lifetime. And unlike a CD or iPod, live musicians will provide seamless transitions between your processional and bridal entrance music. We won't start playing the bridal entrance music until you're ready to walk down the aisle, and and we'll fade out as you reach the altar. You deserve to have live music on your wedding day - you're absolutely worth it.
