Ceremony Music for 2018 Weddings

Something that comes up often during meetings with my clients is the topic of ceremony music. I want to share a little of what I’ve found works to create a memorable and sublime musical moment for your wedding day.

Have you thought about any of the following?

  • Pre-ceremony music that fits your venue for when your guests arrive
  • Songs for your officiant and groom to start the ceremony
  • Song for the wedding party and parents
  • Your entrance music, also called the processional
  • Choosing a processional song that sounds unique and 100% “you”
  • A fun and energetic recessional that captures the celebratory moment

I have a treasure chest full of song ideas that I’m happy to share as we plan together. Even better is getting a chance to customize a one of a kind ceremony playlist that will set the tone you want perfectly.

Surprises and Gold Confetti

Nikki and Troy’s wedding at the Round Hill Country Club was filled with surprises and plenty of gold confetti. Shortly after this picture was taken SJ Sharkie and the A’s Stomper crashed the #wedding and everyone went nuts.

It was mayhem and it was glorious. 🦈💏🐘🎉

Dance Party for Modern Lovers

Wondering what the kids are dancing to at modern weddings in 2018? Check out this collection of 22 songs that I used to create a one-of-a-kind dance mix for the newlyweds at Preservation Park in the heart of Oakland:

Sound like fun? It was! Gimme a shout and we’ll create a special playlist for your upcoming dance party.

Modern love meets retro-cool in the heart of Oakland

I had an absolute blast being a part of Chris and Nicole’s amazingly cool, amazingly fun retro-themed wedding reception this past weekend. Oakland’s skyline created a perfect backdrop for a gorgeous ceremony officiated by one of Chris’ longtime friends.

The warm night air mixed with home-brewed beer and cider made cocktail hour a perfect way to start toasting the newlyweds. My retro cocktail hour playlist included a mixture of classic Motown and dusty gems from the 70s & 80s. Apparently my song selection hit a chord and a few guests stepped onto the dance floor, testing the waters for later in the evening. Always a good sign when that happens!

The evening ended with a giant group hug encircling Chris and Nicole, literally surrounding them with love. They felt it, I felt it and I’m pretty sure the rest of Oakland did too.

Till next time!

Hilltop Party in Pacifica

It doesn’t get much better than DJing with the Pacific ocean as your backdrop.

What a wonderful wedding on a wonderful weekend!

Venue: Shelldance Orchid Gardens

Feels great

to have been a part in such an amazing wedding! 

If I can make a rule can every reception feature a whiskey tasting during cocktail hour from now on?
