The Oakes Garden Theatre is quite a popular wedding location, as it overlooks Niagara Falls. For Joanna and Matthew’s ceremony, they selected music that complemented a springtime morning wedding. Starting the processional (two flower girls and one ring bearer) with Bach stars things off right, Following that was the mother’s processional set to another piece by Bach-Jesu Joy. For the bride’s entrance, something a little more modern fit nicely with Elvis. The signing is a point in the ceremony where the music can be a bit more subdued, and a perfect choice is an arrangement by the French composer Gounod of another piece by Bach, the famous Ave Maria. And to finish, Bittersweet Symphony!
