Masterful Musicians – Wedding Music Inspiration

So, I’m of course a photographer first and foremost, but sometimes I feel like a wedding planner or consultant as my couples often ask me my opinion or suggestions on all the wedding details and decisions they have to make. Although in no way do I want to plan a wedding, I have seen over 300 weddings so I can definitely help with ideas for those who literally are doing this for the very first time.

One thing I suggest for all my Colorado weddings is live musicians for ceremony and cocktail music entertainment. I personally loved Masterful Musicians’ guitarist at my own wedding. He even learned the specific song that I chose especially for my wedding. I think it even helped my husband break down in tears while I walked down the aisle. Of course, if you don’t have something specific in mind but want a more traditional tune, they can help you there too. Here is a list of their most requested ballads for wedding ceremonies!
