March 23, 2016 by Gregg Hollmann

godiva_chocolate_martiniValentine’s Day (or weekend) is a popular date for weddings. The following playlist is a super-sweet and romantic themed playlist for Valentine’s Day couples. The selections span jazz, vocalists, Motown/soul, R&B, reggae, modern acoustic rock and even electronica. Not getting married this Valentine’s Day? Then why not create a custom mix CD for that somebody special? Your mix CD can be enjoyed long after the roses have died and the chocolates have vanished!

Ambient DJ continues its tradition of selecting a signature cocktail for each wedding cocktail hour playlist. For an accompanying cocktail, we recommend a Godiva Chocolate Martini, the recipe for which can be seen by clicking here. Now let’s get into the music….
