This is a stunningly beautiful Malibu wedding location by wedding designer and owner Susan Burger of “Living Beautifully”.
Hello. My name is Eric Zimmermann. I am a DJ/Master of Ceremonies, Pianist and Bandleader. It is hard to say that I “worked this wedding”. It was more of a collaboration. The bride, the groom, their families and guests; everyone contributed greatly to this wedding:
- A friend of the family officiated the wedding ceremony and later played traditional Irish tunes on the accordion.
- I wrote a new quartet arrangement of Coldplay’s “Paradise” for the bridal party’ processional.
- At the end of the wedding ceremony the bridal party accompanied by the Elegant Music Quartet broke into song on “All You Need Is Love” for the Jessica and CJ’s recessional.
The Father of the bride a very creative guy, inspired by his daughter’s wedding put together an amazing medley of music excerpts for the Father Daughter Dance. These included meaningful passages from: Harry Chapin’s “Cat In The Cradle”, Bob Dylan’s “May you Stay Forever Young” performed by rapper will i am, the traditional Irish song “Take Me Home To Mayo”, an excerpt from a traditional greek dance and “Butterfly Kisses” by Lee Greenwood.

So the Irish side of the family brought the accordion. The New Jersey side of the family brought “the Springsteen” and the Greek side of the family brought the Ouzo (a desert liquor from made Fennel) and everyone danced!
