A Lasting Impression
Your guests are sure to be charmed by live music at your ceremony. After all, it’s not every day that you’re serenaded by world-class cello, viola and violin players. Plus, music helps to create lasting memories; when your guests hear your wedding songs long after the ceremony, they will be flooded with memories of your special day.
Up Tempo, Down Tempo
Flower girl dawdling down the aisle, basking in the spotlight, not to mention holding up your entrance? With a Spotify playlist, you might be in trouble; little Lucy could be walking down the aisle to “Here Comes the Bride” instead of you! But don’t fret; your live musicians can adjust the music to adapt to unexpected situations.

You and your guests can enjoy live music before and after the ceremony too! Set the tone for your wedding with bright, ambient music as the guests arrive at the venue. During cocktail our, opt for bolder music, like the Harry Potter film score, or fabulous renditions of your fave 80s rock songs.
