Our quartet played at Amanda and Jeff’s wedding in Chicago’s west suburbs near the end of October, making it our last wedding in the fall of 2010. They had a fun, laughter-filled ceremony which included many wonderful music selections. Some of the Prelude music they requested was the Prelude from Cello Suite No. 1 (Bach), Ode to Joy (Beethoven), Air on the G String (Bach), Arioso/Sinfonia from Cantata No. 156 (Bach), and Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (Handel). Their musical selections during the ceremony were:
Wedding Party: Canon in D (Pachelbel)
Bride: Bridal Chorus (Wagner)
Recessional: Trumpet Voluntary (Clarke)
Postlude: He’ll Make Me Happy (Muppets), Hornpipe (Handel)
Congratulations Jeff and Amanda!
We adjust the length of your processional and ceremony music so it only lasts as long as is necessary (eg: we played “Lullaby” until Amanda and Jeff finished lighting the unity candles and were back in their places, ready to proceed with the ceremony).
