If you’re in Northern Kentucky this week, the falling snow flakes might be deceiving you that spring has recently arrived, that Opening Day is next week, or that April/May heralds in the beginning of the 2013 wedding season. Don’t let the snow fool you (no matter where you are)! April will be here soon, and, for many, that means crossing things off the list to prepare for a wedding.
Though much focus goes into receptions or photos taken before the wedding, your actual wedding ceremony is the headlining event. I urge you to take care in spending time to plan for this important part of the overall wedding process. Whether you’re getting married in a church or elsewhere, the music for your ceremony ought to be planned with care. Although the photos you have taken will last a lifetime, the music at your wedding will leave a lasting impact on guests and can help set the mood for you and your wedding party.
While I would love to talk more with you if you are interested in having me play or take part in your wedding, I want to point your attention to a resource I’m glad to make available on this website. The page, “Wedding Recommendations,” currently lists many classical instrumental songs that would be appropriate for the various sections of the wedding ceremony. I find in helping brides and families plan weddings that many songs “sound the same,” so I’ve hyperlinked YouTube clips to as many songs as possible for folks to have a listen. Each piece is truly unique and conveys certain feelings for each individual. This is your wedding, and the songs you choose should reflect you and your style. These instrumental pieces are just a few of the many options you have in selecting music for your wedding.
Please stay tuned to my website and this blog, in particular; check back often as I will continue to publish posts of relevance as you plan a wedding, another event, or are just interested in learning more about great music.
