WEDDING MUSIC INTRO

Music is a powerful element used to set the mood of your wedding ceremony, from elegant & classy to fun & fanciful. As you read through this guide, think about the mood that you want established at your wedding as the guests are entering before the ceremony and throughout the various sections of the ceremony.  

 

We are more than happy to accommodate any unique modern, cultural, or nontraditional ceremony structures, but below we provide suggestions from our repertoire for a traditional wedding ceremony. Let us know how we can serve you and create the ambiance you want at your ceremony. 

 

Please note that the linked videos are only a reference tool for selecting packages and we will be performing arrangements for the instrumentation of our ensemble. 

 

We are very flexible when it comes to the personalization of your repertoire selections, so be sure to check out our complete repertoire list

 

If you are interested in us playing something not currently on our repertoire list, please talk to your music coordinator about a custom arrangement at least 4 weeks before your wedding. Typically, we are able to include at least one custom piece with your wedding package. If you would like additional custom arrangements, please discuss this with your music coordinator at least 8 weeks prior to your ceremony to receive a quote based on the length & difficulty of the piece(s) you request.
