Lovely 90+ degree day for a wedding, but the setting was scenic (Youngberg Hill Winery) and the people were wonderful! This couple had a unique request: they asked me to play along with the DJ for the processional. It went amazingly well! (The song: The City of Black and White by Mat Kearney) The DJ was great and the processional was perfection.
I was also asked to play a special song in the middle of the ceremony, another request that is not common, but one I wish would make a comeback. I loved that this couple had a song that had such significance to them that they wanted it included. Just as hearing a tune from the past brings back vivid memories from that time, marking this day with a song is insurance that every time that song is played, you will have an instant recall of your wedding. Music just has that kind of power. So consider putting music in the ceremony; add a meaningful hymn to honor the spiritual nature of your union, or a special song during the lighting of the union candle, or a devotional love song to each other.
