Congratulations to Kate and Ryan, who were married at the beautiful Bates Ranch House in Carpinteria. We were honored to provide DJ services for their wedding with DJ Jerry as their main performer. Here are some photos of their event captured by their amazing photographer Holly Ireland!
And here's a window into Kate and Ryan's music taste - the playlist they submitted to us for their wedding!
7. The Bagpiper!
Are you or your fiancé of Scottish or Irish heritage? Surprise your guests with the smooth sounds of bagpipes for your prelude and ceremony. After the ceremony have our bagpiper lead your guests in a Celtic March to the cocktail hour!
Nothing like the angelic sounds of a harp at your ceremony. Our Lever, Pedal and Celtic Harpists can play any classical, traditional, pop and standard song arrangements you request!
5. Pop Guitar
Our pop/rock style guitarists with an edge for your ceremony can play contemporary love songs and standards, instrumental or with vocals.
Play me a song Mr Piano Man! Traditional, Classical, Broadway, Jazz Standards, or Rock/Pop/Modern - we've got you covered with our pianists on roster :)
3. Spanish/Flamenco Guitarist
Getting married in Santa Barbara? Immerse your guests in the total Santa Barbara flavor with a Flamenco/Spanish guitarist - bringing the sound of Classic Spain to your prelude and ceremony.
Surprise your guests with a full 9-Piece Mariachi Band at your ceremony. Or just use them for the surprise recessional and to march your guests to a lively cocktail hour where they continue to play!
1. The String Quartet
The ultimate ceremony musician combination - from classical arrangements to rock and pop favorites, a string quartet is definitely an all-around crowd pleaser.
Live music at a wedding ceremony is a very nice addition to the main event of the day. Whichever instrumentation you decide, make sure it reflects your style, heritage, and taste. We can also combine different musicians together for a custom ensemble. Congratulations!
