Atlanta Wedding Guitarist

Looking for a Wedding Ceremony Guitarist?

Here at Jody Hughes Music we have 15 years of experience playing at wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, and receptions in the Atlanta and North Georgia area.

For a wedding, you need to hire not only a pro, but someone who has lots of experience specifically working weddings. Weddings involve many intricacies that playing a concert or typical music event doesn’t. If you’re interested in talking more about hiring me to be your Wedding musician in the Atlanta area, contact me below, and I’ll get back with you TODAY.

My Goal: The perfect music as you walk down the aisle on your special day!

A few details about our Atlanta Wedding Music:

Wedding Ceremony music packages include 30 minutes of prelude music before the ceremony starts.

Processional and Recessional Songs-If you don’t know exactly what you want, I can offer suggestions and lead you into choosing something.

On the other hand, when possible, if I don’t know something, I will learn it and fulfill song requests for ceremonies and events.

If you need someone only to play the cocktail hour or wedding reception, we do those as well.

Why hire a professional wedding musician?


Experienced at knowing the timing to start & end music, taking cues from wedding coordinators

Knowing the proper songs to play for recessionals/processional/preludes.  

Having access to Sound equipment so the music is heard by your family and friends. This includes playing at appropriate volume levels-the last thing you need is someone playing too loud (or so quiet no one can hear them).

Dressing appropriately (I generally wear a suit unless asked not to do so). My favorite memory over the years of working with clients-“All I ask is you don’t wear black shoes and white socks!”….I’m assuming they had a prior bad musician experience, hahah

Coordinating and Getting there EARLY to ensure your day goes perfectly.  I always arrive at least an hour before the ceremony starts.

Effective and timely communication via phone or email.

Some Atlanta Wedding Venues I’ve played:

Summerour Studio, The Biltmore Ballrooms, The Carlyle Venue, Cator Woolford Gardens (numerous times!), Magnolia Hall, Callanwolde Fine arts Center, Atlanta Botantical Gardens, Chastain Horse Park event facility, The Roof at Ponce City Market, and many more.

No problem if you don’t see your wedding location, new locations are always welcome.  

I have over 6 years of 5 star reviews on, as well as earning these badges for all of my work with wedding and private event clients:
