Your Soundtrack | Cherie (Paper Crane Theme + Indie Tunes)

Your Soundtrack = My response to brides asking for music help. If you would like help with music for your wedding day, contact me! I’d love to do what I can.

Today’s soundtrack is for Cherie. Here’s what Cherie had to say: “I am very impressed with your work. [*Blush*] I was just speaking with my mother about how hard it is to find good slow music that isn’t country (especially in our area). My fiancee and I are huge nerds (superheroes, comic books, japanese culture, you name it) and we are having the hardest time finding music we like. You could say we’re a bit indie/alternative kind of people. Our wedding is tied in with 1,000 paper cranes, based off of my favorite book as a child. What do you think? Do you have a playlist for us?”

Why yes I do! And an inspiration board, for good measure.:)There’s a cocktail/dinner list which features a lot of slow songs which could also be used for the ceremony, or the first dance. Then a more upbeat dancing list for… well, dancing! Hope this helps!

I have been wanting to get into some indie music to play in the background while I write so this list actually helps me out too!

what a GREAT line-up of music. Fits the couple’s request perfectly (IMO!) and I love that inspiration board :)

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! I honestly cannot say it enough!

The songs are absolutely gorgeous. I couldn’t have found them if I had gone at it for a week, so sheltered am I as far as music is concerned. Not to mention, the pictures you chose were almost exactly what I have envisioned for so long.

You are very talented! Again, thank you so much!
