About Cello for Weddings

My name is Ryan Smith and my one-person musical act is Cello for Weddings, Events, and Ambience. I am happy to say I am one of the most popular wedding musicians/groups in the state!

I have a unique approach to wedding music in that my live cello is accompanied by recordings I arrange, record, and create in my home studio. The result brings beautiful sound and sweet emotion to weddings all throughout New Mexico!

To get a feel for the sound of my music, visit my website at www.ryansmithcellomusic.com.

I have a long list of modern wedding favorites, Classical and (by request Traditional wedding favorites like Canon in D, Here Comes the Bride.). To make it easy for couples to choose their favorite styles and/or songs I play, I provide a link to all my recordings and an organized planning guide.

The whole goal is to make it fun and easy for you, yet super customizable to your musical tastes! The playlists often blend Classical music with popular songs, but I can play an entire ceremony (and cocktail hour) in either style if you'd like. I take all of your inputs into account as I choose a playlist for your wedding and reception. With that being said, I am able to choose songs in the moment to enhance your wedding Prelude.

I am rain-ready and use a fully battery-powered speaker, which means I can play (and be heard) at any venue!

Our experience with Ryan was absolutely fantastic! He was incredibly professional and did a fantastic job playing during the ceremony (April 2018 in Albuquerque NM). We really appreciate his ... Read more willingness to work with us and play a lot of music that isn't typical for weddings including preparing and playing a song he had never heard before our initial request. His services helped make for a beautiful ceremony.

Ryan was the cellist for my Denver wedding in September of 2015. The wedding was held at a museum on an outdoor terrace and it was a beautiful early fall day. Ryan's presence sealed the deal and made ... Read more the wedding feel so elegant and enchanting--his music entertained and delighted antsy guests before the ceremony. :) Not only was Ryan extremely talented but he was very reliable and personable. The wedding was a magical day and Ryan's presence was part of that special energy. Highly recommend Ryan for future weddings!
