Stephanie + Matt’s wedding ceremony at Whistle Bear, June 3, 2016, Cambridge wedding music

Wow, what a beautiful day!  Early summer weddings can be so fantastic, and this was no exception. In speaking with Stephanie and Matt, the couple came up with a fantastic list of songs, and we tweaked the order and number to get things just right for the ceremony. The playlist speaks for itself, and sounded amazing performed by the violinist and cellist.

Jana + Mark’s wedding at Q Haute Cuisine, June 18, 2016, Calgary wedding music

“Thanks so much for everything—it was perfect!” Jana, bride

 This ceremony was really fun and lighthearted, and we were excited to perform at Q Haute Cuisine, as this was a new venue in Calgary for us. Jana and Mark opted for our most popular ensemble, the violin and cello duo. The couple did a great job choosing their song selections, as everything fit perfectly, and was timed brilliantly. The prelude songs worked very well, as most often we perform all classical or a mix of pop and classical, which helps to create a calm, relaxing mood. In this case, the couple chose all pop, and the right songs make all the difference! During the ceremony, the music switched to classical, and again everything fit wonderfully. I love the combination of Bach Air with Pachelbel’s Canon. Jesu Joy (also by Bach) is an exceptional signing song, and ending with Bittersweet Symphony for that burst of energy as the couple exits was the perfect touch!

Prelude 

Isreal kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere Over The Rainbow
Christina Perri - A Thousand Years
Louis Armstrong - What a wonderful World
Train – Marry Me
Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling In love
