Wedding Music

We here at Curtis Rhodes Weddings and A Perfect Little Wedding love to help our couples with ideas about how to make their wedding as beautiful as can be. When possible, one of the things we encourage is to add music to the ceremony. Of course, music for the processional and recessional is de riguire! We love to include "interludes" within the ceremony...such as a candle lighting, sand ceremony or our wonderful flame ceremony, and a short piece of music included here lets the wedding party and guests to take a moment to reflect upon the beauty of the moment. Often, especially when the Perfect Little Wedding is outdoors at a beach or park, the couple will bring along their IPod and ask a friend to be in charge of starting and stopping the music. When the ceremony is at the same location as the reception and the couple has hired a DJ company, they will often provide the perfect musical pieces to compliment the ceremony. We love working with DJs but most of all, for wedding ceremony music, we love live music. Live musicians can be much more able to adjust their playing to the situation, starting and stopping the piece in a natural way. We have many favorite musicians we love to recommend and work with and are always ready to help our couples with their music as they design their ceremonies. I'm including a photo of Spencer and Traci of A Bottom Line Duo, fabulous musicians who we love to run into at a wedding!
