Spring is one of my favorite seasons, May in particular. Even nicer than all the flowers, the green grass, the birds singing, is a spring wedding ceremony, in a church on a warm day. There is just so much promise and excitement in a spring ceremony, and we are always happy to perform. Kayla and Andrew chose quite traditional music, which we always like as it just fits so perfectly. I particularly enjoy the combination of Bach Air with Pachelbel Canon, as the Bach Air has such a smoothness to the sound, which Pachelbel Canon is much more contrasting, and almost bursts forth with energy. The signing is paced slightly slower, as this gives the guests a chance to think about the couples marriage (and snap a few photos in some cases) while the bride and groom sign the marriage documents. Bach’s Jesu Joy is perfect for this as well. Lastly, as the couple is introduced for the first time, what is more appropriate than the Mendelssohn wedding March in a church, in May?

If there is a trend in the wedding industry, I would say that more and more couples are going outside of the box, and customizing and choosing elements of the wedding, whether flowers, attire, venues, readings and specially music that combines classic elegance with elements of contemporary and popular culture. While there are many more decisions for the clients to make, the result is often spectacular, especially of they have a wedding planner or in our case Duo d’Amore who can help guide them in choosing music so that it has the right fit for the client and for a wedding ceremony. In this respect Danielle and Dany did an excellent job!

Looking at the two modern songs by Enya and the Verve, they have a classical feel to them, but also are different enough to add a bit of additional excitement to the wedding ceremony.
