It's Your Day!
I absolutely love playing at weddings. I've been lucky enough to sing at many of them, as I played for years in a big traveling swing band, and then a few more years with some small combos before moving to Northern California and playing mostly solo. Here's what I love best about the weddings I play: I get to be, in some small way, a part of the most important day in two people's lives. Every wedding is a reflection of the individuality, and the style, and the love that two people share. To be able to witness that (in the form of a great big party!) is a great way to spend a day, if you ask me!
As a wedding musician, my job is to maintain the wonderful atmosphere you've worked so hard to create. During your cocktail hour, would you like the mood in the room to be relaxed? Joyful? Sophisticated? Fun and funky? Music can do that in an instant. I pride myself on reading the room and being aware and sensitive to what kind of music will set a warm, inviting tone for all your guests.
My goal is to help
highlight beautiful moments in your wedding
with great music.
What style of music do you and your other half love most? Let me help create a perfect blend of music for the cocktail hour, in between your ceremony and your reception. Got a favorite song you'd like me to play during your first dance together? Let me know! You can see a list of some of the tunes I play here, and below, there are some testimonials from couples whose weddings I've played recently. Get in touch with any questions, I'd be thrilled to chat with you about your plans!

"We were so excited to have Chenot play a role in our big day. We wanted something special for when Nicola walked down the aisle and Chenot’s rendition of “When You Say Nothing At All” exceeded our expectations and was incredible. She amazed our guests and created the atmosphere we were hoping for. Her voice is incredible and she is an amazing performer. She would be a great addition to anyone’s special day."

"Thank you so much for the gift of music! I'm so grateful you were there on our special day and created such a romantic atmosphere for us and our guests. Music was incredible!"

"Chenot first caught our attention during a night out, and we knew right away that this was the feeling we wanted to replicate during the dinner reception for our Vermont wedding. While most people do a DJ for the after party, we were seeking a more unique and memorable experience for us and our guests. Her awesome voice combined with her chill funk style remixes of familiar songs really does something for everyone. We requested a personal version of “Bound to You” for our last dance, and it was the perfect finish to our beautiful day!"

"It was everything we wanted and more!! Let me tell you, we got a TON of compliments."
