Wedding Ceremony Music

"Music has the power to bring people together like no other artform." - Michael Franti

Many guests will arrive between 30-45 minutes before the time on your wedding invitation. Beautiful live is among the most effective wedding decor, and your guests will appreciate the unique ambience. Here are a few examples of songs I might play before your ceremony. You'll also be invited to help create your pre-ceremony playlist.

Make You Feel My Love - Adele (written by Bob Dylan)
Fly Me to the Moon - Frank Sinatra
In the Morning Light - Yanni
All of Me - John Legend
Crash Into Me - Dave Matthews Band (sample)
Like Real People Do - Hozier

Featured entrances of your family, close friends, ring bearers, and flower people. And, if you want to include your dogs in your wedding, this is the time to do it! On average, a wedding procession will have 2 or 3 songs.

Perfect - Ed Sheeran
Unchained Melody - Sam Cooke version
Can You Feel the Love Tonight - Elton John
Tale As Old As Time - Beauty and the Beast
Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles

A timeless piece of live music is a great choice for this moment, whether modern, an oldie, or classical.

I Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley
A Thousand Years - Christina Perri
Tale As Old As Time - Beauty and the Beast
Canon in D - Pachelbel

This is an optional sacred moment during the ceremony. For example, a sand ceremony, candle lighting, or unity cross ceremony. The Officiant may or may not be speaking as the music is playing. A few great songs to consider are:

Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland
Yellow - Coldplay
Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen

This is the song that'll play as you're walking out of your wedding ceremony. It's a good moment for a song that's fun, creative, or celebratory.

Aint No Mountain - Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
Lover - Taylor Swift
All You Need is Love - The Beatles
At Last - Etta James

A song for your guests as they exit the ceremony space.
