Music for Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions

Music before the marriage ceremony welcomes guests and fills them with joyful anticipation. Processional music announces the dignified entrance of the bride and her party. The right music will guide her down the aisle. Recessional music signals that the time for celebration has begun. Before the vows, reflective music will focus everyone's attention on the bride and groom.. [ Listen ]

Often the bride and groom have a favorite song they would like to have performed as part of their ceremony. Sometimes it is classical, sometimes it is traditional, and other times popular. I have accommodated requests from Mozart to Bob Marley, from to Laura Nyro to Lonestar. I enjoy making it beautiful and welcome new musical suggestions.

On several occasions, I have accompanied singer friends of the bride and groom who wished to contribute to the celebration.

"William and I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful music you played at our wedding. I am so happy that I was able to hear you play and take in the music before I proceeded down the aisle. Family members took video of our ceremony, and when I listen to it I smile at the music! It was truly beautiful."

~ Nicole Smith and William Lami

The music was exactly what we wanted and I can still hear it when I think about our big day! You are truly talented and we thank you for sharing your talent with us.

"We wanted a professional artist who played classical guitar to perform at our wedding, rather than a wedding guitarist. We got exactly what we were looking for! James is very talented! He accommodated all of our requests, but was also able to choose some of the music based on what we liked from his demos, as well as general music styles that we like."

~ Charles Patterson and Laura Chetwind
