Ceremony Music Inspiration

Your wedding ceremony music should set the mood and enhance all of the emotions and romance as you walk down the aisle.

Whether it’s a traditional or modern take, live music or recorded sound – make it ambient, make it memorable, make it you! Some couples prefer modern ceremony songs like Make You Feel My Love by Adele or First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes while others go the traditional route with Canon in D. Choose a song that feels special to you, whether it’s “your” song or something from a band you both love. Whatever you choose, you can make the moment more personal and intimate with live music. A soloist up to a string quartet can play any song you choose, whether you want a vocalist, acoustic performance, or your favorite song performed as a moving string piece (shout out to any Bridgerton fans!)

Not only do you need a beautiful processional piece, you need a great recessional to set the mood as you head off for the reception! Since the vows have been made and sealed with a kiss, this song should be more upbeat, fun, and celebratory. Something like Happy by Pharrell Williams or This Will Be by Natalie Cole should do the trick.

To help you get started, check out our playlist of ceremony songs we love! We hope this sparks some inspiration. If you need more guidance, reach out to one of our producers to talk to about what songs we can play for you on your special day!
