Selecting Your Wedding Music


Below are the parts of the ceremony we typically play for.  If you need additional music, just let us know. 
You can listen to several samples from our music library by going to the Music Library page.


Part of Ceremony  Description


Before ceremony, approx. 30 minutes (while guests are being seated). 

Family seating

For seating of parents and grandparents.  If you have a unity candle, two family members light the tapers during this piece.

Attendants' Processional

Officiant, groom, and groomsmen enter.  Bridesmaids, flower girl, and ring bearer walk down the aisle.

Bride's Processional

For entrance of bride.  We recommend a separate piece to highlight her moment.

  • Lighting of the Unity Candle
  • Sand Ceremony
  • Presentation of Gifts (just before communion)
  • Communion
  • Vocal Solo
  • Moment of Reflection


Wedding party exits.


Guests exit.
The musicians usually take the liberty of selecting a piece for the postlude, but will honor special requests as much as possible.
