Music Planning for Your Wedding Ceremony

"Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart" — Pablo Casals

Minnesota wedding ceremony vocalist, Diane Martinson- Twin City Wedding Music

A complimentary consultation to plan song placement and preview ceremony music is provided 4 months before your wedding. I will sing and play through music options for you, and review any special requests. It's best to have a copy of your ceremony outline from your officiant for our meeting.

It is my pleasure to provide custom song arrangements for my instrumental accompanists. My song arrangements compliment my vocal line and highlight the instrumentation.

I look forward to helping you select meaningful music that will enhance your special day.

Ceremony Music Order

Your officiant or church music director will be able to provide you with the ceremony order. I've also included an example of the placement of music in my planner PDF.

Prelude Music
Typically instrumental selections played 20 minutes prior to the ceremony while guests are being seated. A Vocal Prelude Solo may be sung during seating of family and lighting of the altar candles.
Music for the bridal party, the bride, or the couple's entrance. This may be one longer song with a pause in the middle, or two music selections.
