"Thank you, Bloom Music Weddings, for playing at our wedding! The music was perfect and set a beautiful tone for the ceremony!!"
— Adrienne, happily married
"Kathryn, though known to us outside of her business, provided a professional and meaningful accompaniment to our big day. In preparation for our event, she met with us a local coffee house, reviewed what our expectations and wishes were, and was patient while we decided which music we wanted to have played at our wedding. Furthermore, she provided recommendations on audio equipment for our other needs and arrived early to set up her own equipment on the day of, according to our and our venue's timetable. At our request she did custom viola arrangements for five songs of our choice and her beautiful music brought to life the sincerity, joy, and fun that we sought to represent at our union. Overall, Kathryn exceeded all our expectations and we were able to have the perfect musical accompaniment for our procession, signing, and recession--thanks for the delightful and elegant accompaniment!"
--Emily and Nicholas Vreugdenhil
"It was 'breath taking' watching you play...beautiful!"
--Jaime, music patron
WHAT IS A LOOP PEDAL?
Used by artists from Ed Sheeran to #1 Billboard classical artist Jessica Meyer, loop pedal technology allows one solo artist to play multiple harmonies and accompaniments at the same time, all 100% live. A performer can play one harmonic line, and “loop” it so that they can perform a melodic line on top. In other words, one string player becomes a lush orchestra.
CAN’T I JUST HIRE A DJ?
Of course you can! A DJ is a great option for the dancing portion of a wedding; in fact, there’s nothing better! But for a reception or cocktail hour, a loop pedal artist adds that special touch of live music, instantly setting the tone of a unique and unforgettable experience.
WHY NOT HAVE A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER PLAY AT MY WEDDING?
Inevitably, couples have to find places to cut costs, and having a friend or family member perform at your wedding is sometimes a simple way to do so. It can even be a sentimental choice, and can be the best option IF that person also makes a living as a professional musician. However, too often the friend or family members couples enlist are amateur musicians who have never performed at a wedding before; these musicians often don’t have the experience to make the music truly special. Couples who hire a professional artist to perform at their wedding can be confident in exceptional, unforgettable quality… and your friends and family can be where they belong: enjoying the festivities, with all eyes on you!
CAN I CHOOSE MY OWN MUSIC?
Absolutely! There is a repertoire list on the website that serves as a guide (see here). If there is a song you don't see listed, not a problem, Kathryn would be happy to arrange it for your event.
WHAT HAPPENS IF BLOOM MUSIC WEDDINGS MISSES A REHEARSAL OR PART OF A PERFORMANCE?
In the entirety of Bloom Music Weddings’ existence, Kathryn Patricia has prided herself on NEVER missing or being tardy to any of her client obligations. However, you are covered against any potential artist-caused absence with our full money-back guarantee. However, while Bloom Music Weddings is able to resolve the vast majority of circumstances in a wedding we are not responsible for tardiness or absence due to extreme weather or other events outside of the artist’s control.
