Classical/Ceremony and Flamenco Guitar

Classical/Ceremony and Flamenco Guitar
A classical guitarist is a perfect and affordable way to have live music for your ceremony &
Cocktail hour.
I work with a few of them that have been performing in Southern California since the mid 90’s.   All of them have built a great reputation for dependability and quality performance.
Music ranges from classical, wedding songs, standards and flamenco. Extended  repertoire includes pop, Latin, Broadway, classic rock, Celtic, Italian, Jewish, and Brazilian music.
The specialty for classical guitarists is performing for out door wedding ceremonies that include a sound system that can run on battery power.  The guitarist can be flexible playing
for the ceremony and then moving to the cocktail hour area pretty quickly.

Wedding Planning Tips

Wedding Planning Tips

Wedding Planning is an art that can be mastered with experience and time.  One does need to have the desire and people skills necessary in planning weddings. Yes you can get better while working with wedding planners, going to seminars and expos and then planning weddings on your own or with staff that has experience.  Everyone will learn from mistakes too and no matter who you are, there is never too much you can learn or know.

Taking great notes and being organized is a must.  When learning this business, do not be afraid to ask questions to people in the business or intern with a company that is reputable.  Everyone will deal with clients that are very difficult at one time or another as well as great, easy clients but the key is to be professional, positive and prompt. The 3 P’s.

Spending time with a wedding couple will help them relax and make them more comfortable with their special day. Having a wedding couple happy and satisfied is very important for your reputation as well getting business by word of mouth and referrals (the best way to get future business as that is free advertising).

All in all, wedding planning takes years to get better at. Helping with the couple’s timeline, song requests and questions leading up to the wedding is a huge part to be prepared for the big day.  When you are prepared as a wedding planner, the day of will go much smoother.  If you are ever unsure of anything, ask the couple, the venue contact or even the vendors to make sure you are on the same page.  Work hard and it will pay off.
