Rhiannon and Ben’s wedding ceremony, violin and cello duo, August 17, Chateau Laurier Ottawa ON

Rhiannon and Ben chose pop music for their ceremony and we were happy to accommodate, as always. The ceremony took place in the Adam room of the Chateau Laurier. The bridesmaids walked down the aisle to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perry with the bride following with “Kissing You”, otherwise known as the Theme from Romeo and Juliet. As the signing can sometimes take five or six minutes, two songs were chosen for this part of the ceremony: “I Won’t Give Up” and “Yellow” by Coldplay. Bruno Mars’ “I Think I Wanna Marry You”, was heard as the recessional.
