California Beach Weddings, Vintage Music
Many California brides opt for a specacular outdoor setting for their ceremony, then move indoors for the reception — or not!
In a Malibu garden overlooking the clouds above the Pacific Ocean, on a beach in Santa Barbara or La Jolla, at a winery in Temecula or on the grounds of a vintage Pasadena or Palm Springs estate, lovely outdoor weddings often utilize the elegant element of live music.
It’s music from the movies, jazz, swing, big band, Sinatra and the irresistable standards of the Great American Song Book.
This is happy, romantic music that transcends generations and cultures, puts everyone in a wonderful mood and sets the scene for great wedding pictures!
Years later, those pictures will conjure up memories of emotions, and so will hearing a snippet of the music that was played that day or night.
(But probably not what the food tasted like.)
Food is nice. We like food.
Wine and martinis are nice, too.
But the best memories of all come from music. And the Great American Songbook’s timeless appeal will still be around when your grandchildren are looking at your wedding pictures.
That’s why we call this music “standards.”
