|July 02, 2017 • 11:00am - 12:00pm||Wedding Ceremony|
The typical wedding ceremony can be divided into four sections: The Prelude, Processional, Ceremony, and Recessional.
Prelude –The Prelude music will begin approximately 20 minutes before the official start time. During this portion of your ceremony, I will play a varying selection of light classical music as your guests arrive on this most special day.
Processional – The processional begins with the groomsman escorting the bridal party to the altar. It is not uncommon for the bride to walk down the aisle to different music than her bridal party.
Selections for the processional can be chosen from a wide array of genres, including pieces such as:
Bridal Chorus – F. Mendelssohn’s
Cannon in D Major – J. Pachelbel
Here Comes the Sun – The Beatles
All of me – John Legend
Making Memories of Us - Keith Urban
A Whole New World - Aladdin
Your Song - Elton John
Some couples have special songs that they would like to use for the processional. If you have a request, I will be happy to try and include your personal selection.
Ceremony Music – The couple may choose to include the lighting of a unity candle or a sand ceremony.
Recessional- Congratulations to the NEWLEYWEDS! Music will play as you, the bridal party, groomsman, and guests depart from the ceremony.
