Music: The Voice of Your Emotion for Your Wedding

Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge absolutely loves this piece of music composed and directed by the incredible maestro and Academy Award Winner, Ennio Morricone. The music is from the movie Cinema Paradiso (the movie is also one of my all time favorites).

It is one of the most beautiful love stories and romantic scores I have ever seen and heard and I cry every time I listen to it. It is so full of emotion and passion, I can't help it. I'll sit at my desk and drop tears on the keyboard.

Music does that to us. It takes us to wonderful exciting heights of emotion from breathtaking, sweeping romance to exciting, pounding Disco or Rock N' Roll.

Music is so important in our lives and loves and in telling the story of your emotions on your wedding day (and later in your wedding film or photography montage).

From the moment the guests arrive and hear the music as they are seated at the ceremony to the very last dance at your reception, a narrative of the two of you; your moments and the special times in your lives you want to share are played like a soundtrack that will be etched in time and memory.

What music, when you hear it, makes you well up with emotion...love, happiness, comfort, excitement and fondness (those 70's & 80's tunes perhaps)?

As you begin to score your wedding soundtrack in your minds, write down your ideas so you can share them with your BOTH your wedding cinematographers AND entertainment specialist, be it orchestra, band, trio, or DJ. They will assist you in putting together a composition that will see your story, your emotions set to music, unfold beautifully. I'm also willing to bet there will be some tears too!

Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge would love to hear from you. What songs made YOU emotional at your wedding or your daughters or sons or friends? Thank you for sharing your comments.

Have a fabulous day!

Thanks for a great post!! I totally agree!

My songs:
Bridal party processional:
311 - Love Song

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

I walked down the aisle to Aerosmith - I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing
LOVE the chorus: I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

(This part always makes me cry)
Lying close to you
Feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever

Recessional: U2 - Beautiful Day
It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

I love that you posted this!!! This is literally the NUMBER ONE reason we got into wedding filmmaking. Without a good soundtrack a movie would be nothing. Think about ET without the John Williams soundtrack! Great Great Great post!!!!

Thank you for reading the blog & thank you for such nice comments on this post.

I felt compelled to add a little extra in last paragraph about sharing the information with "Wedding Cinematographers" as well.

Maybe that will score me an extra "Great":)
