Our last wedding ceremony was just a month ago in September at the Nordic Centre and it was good to be back. Our violinist and cellist performed an interesting program of music for this wedding that included a mix of more popular and modern songs with more traditional music s well. We started to play as guests were arriving and being seated. The first song that the string ensemble performed was for the groomsmen as the walked in. Although this part of the ceremony typically happens in silence Bittersweet symphony was a natural choice of the opening of the wedding ceremony. The bridesmaids walked to The Rose by Bette Midler, and the bride came in to the famous Pachelbel canon in D. The signing continued with classical music (this is always a great idea) and we performed Bach’s Air on the G string, followed by Viva la Vida by Coldplay for the recessional.
