I have compiled a collection of music to give you an example of the many types of music that I use for wedding ceremonies on a regular basis. This collection contains many different styles, and I've tried to present it in such a way that makes it easy for my clients to hear quite a few different things in a reltively short amount of time. It is my sincere hope that you will either find some music selections that you like, or that some of these songs will be the catalyst that helps you think of the music that is just right for you.
There are also specific musical selections included that are chosen to accompnay the entrances, sand ceremony, exits, and whatever other special cues and components that you would like to include in your ceremony.
