Stephanie and Mike’s wedding ceremony at the Grand Metropolitan of Mississauga, violin and cello string duo, September 14, 2013, Mississauga ON

The music for this wedding ceremony was arranged in a bit of a different way from other weddings, but it worked well, and provided uniqueness to the day. As the songs were a mix of classical and modern music, many couples choose classical music to be performed as the guests arrive during the prelude and modern music during the ceremony. In this case the clients chose appropriately soft and light modern music for the prelude, and a mix of both modern and classical music during the ceremony. Our string musicians really enjoyed performing the March of the Priests from the Magic Flute by Mozart, as it was a great contrast with the more flowing Pachelbel canon. Though many people already know the Pachelbel canon, it is amazing how different it can sound when paired with another song! The same thing can be said for the traditional recessional song being paired with Leonard Cohen’s beautiful Hallelujah during the signing.
