Each part of this wedding was beautiful thanks to the creative vision of Linda and Thomas. They had really good ideas. It was a pleasure to work with them planning music for their celebration. Sincerely, Sheila and Eric Zimmermann Elegant Music 626-797-1795.
Wedding Ceremony Music Choices
We can’t help but be inspired by couples planning their special day. Some of the coolest music we play were once requests. Linda chose the Elegant Music Quartet to perform during the wedding ceremony.

I wrote 3 new arrangements that our quartet now performs: Lava Song, Say Something, Love Me Like You Do.

Elegant Music Jazz Trio
The Elegant Music Jazz Trio performed cocktail hour music after the wedding ceremony. Linda had the idea of a jazz version of the theme from Game of Thrones. I had already written an arrangement of this television theme for the Elegant Music Quartet but I hadn’t thought of it for Jazz Trio. Well, it sounded cool and guests recognizing it commented that they liked it. Another song we performed that was well received was a Jazz Version of Beethoven’s Fur Elise.
Family and friends had fun contributing to the festivities. There were speeches and meaningful toasts. There were even a number of guests who performed. I don’t know whose idea it was to do a “lip singing contest” but it was funny and wildly entertaining!
DJ Dance Music
After dinner, toasts and performances “Shut Up and Dance” kicked off the dance set. Here are some other songs that dancers enjoyed:
Shake It Off Taylor Swift
Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) Silento
Blurred Lines (feat. T.I. & Pharrell) Robin Thicke
Uptown Funk (feat. Bruno Mars)
Smooth Carlos Santana
We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris) Rihanna
Titanium – David Guetta
