Wedding Music Coordination


Choosing Music for Your Wedding-


  1. The prelude music is music that is played during the time in which guests are arriving and being seated in the chapel for your wedding. You may choose up to 15 minutes of music for this time period. You may listen to excerpts of the various compositions in order to assist you in the decision making process. The length of each piece is listed next to the title. You may choose pieces that combined, will add to to no more than 15 minutes of music. You may indicate the order of your prelude selections in the text boxes.
  2. The wedding processional is the music that is played as the wedding party and the bride come down the aisle. Please choose one processional. Please note that when the bride is to come down the aisle, the organ music will adjust and become apparent that the bride is entering. You may choose a second processional piece if you prefer a different selection for the wedding party and the bride. You may indicate the order of your processional selections in the text boxes.
  3. The wedding recessional is the music at the end of the ceremony that is played as the couple and the wedding party depart moving towards the rear of the building. Please choose one recessional piece.

Please make your selections and send in your payment no later than 30 days prior to your wedding.
