The derivation of the word “Elegant” comes from Latin, “eligeri” “to elect” “select” “to choose”
So, Elegant Music is “chosen music”.
Choice of Music is Personal
The part of helping a couple plan music for their event that I enjoy the most is talking with them about music they like.
Sometimes I will write arrangements of the songs they have chosen to be performed by the ensemble they have chosen.
The result, is a “live performance” of their favorite songs. Writing quartet arrangements of their special requests helps to personalize their wedding. A couple chooses their location, their flowers, food, their guests; it’s a reflection of them. Each part of their wedding can have its own music. Helping them to put it all together is a lot of fun.

Greg and Michelle made excellent choices for their wedding. They put together a great team of vendors.
Rabbi Cantor Alison Wissot conducted the wedding ceremony with a warm and friendly demeanor and she can really sing. Usually, in a Jewish Wedding Ceremony the Groom breaks one glass at the end. In the video Alison explained why the couple broke two glasses.
This wedding was planned, beautifully designed and coordinated by Kimery Sherwood. In addition to her many duties Kimery took care that the bridal party and bride’s processional were timed perfectly!
Congratulations Greg and Michelle! Thank you for bringing us all together :-)
Sincerely, Eric Zimmermann, Elegant Music
