The Successful Wedding @ The Langham
It was very evident how happy everyone was for Sam and Cayle. Beautiful wedding ceremony in the Horseshoe Garden, a really fun cocktail hour on the Viennese Terrace and during the wedding reception in the Viennese Ballroom there were meaningful toasts, guests enjoying the company of each other and losing themselves on the dance floor. You can always tell how much an event was enjoyed by how long guests linger after the party is over. Well after this party no one wanted to go home!

Great American Song Book
Music was important to this family. Songs were carefully selected. One of the first questions Cayle asked was, “do you play any music from the “Great American Song Book?”” It was refreshing to be asked such a direct and interesting question. Being a pianist and jazz player I am familiar with music from the “Great American Song Book” by American composers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, recorded and made famous by Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Sinatra and now Michael Buble. Eagerly I said, “Sure!” This is classic American music. Indeed this music continues to influence art and culture worldwide.

Live Music and DJ Dance Music
This bride’s vision was to have:
- Selections from the “Great American Song Book” by the original artists performed for the wedding ceremony (pre-recorded)
- Continuing this style of music played live during the (cocktail hour and a half) by the Elegant Music Jazz Trio.
- DJ Dance Music. A variety of Top 40 and all time dance music favorites during the wedding reception after dinner. Elegant Music Dance Floor Surround Sound (a four speaker setup) was chosen for “loud dance music” later in the evening.
Cayle kind of apologized for the “do not play list” being longer than the “play list” but again I admired that music was that important to her. Actually all the work she had put in on these lists allowed me to organize the evening so that the right music selections would be played at the right time.
Congratulations Sam and Cayle and their families!
