Outstanding music, service and professionalism

Columbus Musicians were fantastic at our non-traditional wedding ceremony. I had a lot of ideas about the music but didn't really know how to translate them into music that would work for a wedding ceremony. They played a combination of both traditional and more modern music... Read More throughout the ceremony including while our guests were being seated, the processional, changing each song for the parents and grandparents, bridal party and then for me and my dad. They also played a musical interlude while we lit the unity candle and then played the recessional. The ceremony went wonderfully. We got so many compliments on the ceremony and the music. Columbus Musicians worked with my non-traditional ideas and made sure that the music complimented our ceremony perfectly. The best part was that they were very professional, played beautiful music and we barely even noticed them (which I think is a good sign because they didn't get in the way at all). I can say that I am 100% satisfied with the performance they gave.
