The Wedding Ceremony

Music sets the mood of a wedding ceremony and is a wonderful way to infuse your personality into the service. The songs from our Wedding Sampler CD will help you select music for a ceremony perfectly suited to you. You can also choose from our repertoire list or make a special request.

Prelude ~ As guests begin to arrive, beautiful music draws them to the site where the ceremony will take place. The tone of the music can be quiet and reflective or have a spirit of liveliness and joy. Sometimes special music is played for the seating of the parents and grandparents just prior to the processional.

Processional ~ This music accompanies the wedding party as they walk down the aisle. One musical piece can be played for the bridal party and bride, or separate songs can be chosen for the bride and bridal party.
