As its name suggests, “True Love’s Vow” makes the perfect addition to any wedding ceremony. Stephanie Bennett’s original romantic melody sounds like it is straight out of your favorite romantic movie, making it a great fit for a bridal party processional or grand bridal entrance.
This lively, uplifting melody by Meg Robinson is the perfect alternative to traditional recessionals. Confidently offer this piece as postlude music, as well, keeping the energy light and fun while guests make their way to cocktail hour.
Brides are getting creative these days when it comes to unity ceremonies and we’re starting to see them a lot more. Whether you have a request to play for a sand ceremony, unity candle lighting, knot tying, tree planting, wine mixing, etc., Joy Slavens’ very accessible piece, “Elegance,” is for you. Its flowing melody matches the right tone for intimate mid-ceremony moments. It can even be used for processionals, too.

Jodi Ann Tolman’s gentle and reflective piece “Here With You” would be the perfect touch to a wedding ceremony interlude or prayer moment. The calming melodies also lend well for prelude music.
