Celebrations deserve the best, and live music is the perfect touch to make your wedding day memorable and happy.
All ceremonies are unique but they also have elements which are common.
- Prelude music as guests arrive
- Processional music for the bridal party
- Ceremony music where needed throughout the ceremony
- Recessional music as the newly married couple are introduced for the first time as husband and wife
- Postlude music as guests exit.
Together we will find your perfect music for the prelude, seating of mothers, entrance of the bridesmaids, and YOU!
Then we will plan the music to play for candle lighting and all ceremony rituals that require orchestration.
Finally, we select the grand music for your recessional as you walk out as a newly married couple!
The process of choosing your music is easy. And it's a lot of fun too!
You may have spent a long time discussing your first dance song with your partner, but don’t neglect other important pieces of music you’ll need on your Wedding day! Karen Addie will help guide you...
Catholic Mass Wedding
Beauty is a window onto the divine so it is not surprising that the Church calls for the music used in its worship to be beautiful. Karen Addie will help you select beautiful wedding music, given your tastes and culture.
Whether or not you are having a traditional Jewish wedding, the musical traditions brought to you by Karen Addie can enhance the meaning, sense of community, and enjoyment of your special day...
My groups always arrive EARLY and ready to PLAY! We provide continuous music from the moment the first guest arrives.
We choose special pieces of music to orchestrate each event -- Seating of Mothers, Bridesmaids Entrance, and Your Bridal Processional. Since your processional piece is the most important one, we select it first
Music enhances every special component of your wedding, including lighting of a Unity Candle, Communion, or any ritual you may have.
This piece is joyful and grand, for it signifies your presentation for the first time as husband and wife.
As with the prelude, my groups provide continuous music until the last guest has exited. You may want to allow guests to simply leave, or you may want to greet and release them row by row. In either case, they will depart to joyful music.
I will be happy to provide strolling violin music for your cocktail hour at no additional fee if your ceremony is at the same location as your reception.
