Planning Your Day

Every couple wants their ceremony to be memorable.  Some prefer the timeless and traditional, while others are inclined to be creative and go with modern trends.  A few key elements remain regardless:  a minister or judge will offer words and music will play on cue, letting guests know its time to begin. There's also the exchanging of vows and, of-course, the kiss :)

In many instances, however, churches and parks are ill-equipped to handle technical needs or quality sound.  We offer solutions like reliable wireless microphones and low-profile, battery-powered speakers that stay out of view while carrying sound to virtually any number of guests -even in an open field!

From Prelude To Procession

You'll need to work with your DJ on the timing and arrangement of musical selections for your ceremony.  Typically, a ceremony's score consists of five separate songs or groups of songs.

Prelude music is played while guests arrive and continues until ushers escort your immediate family to the front to be seated.  A brief pause marks the transition to your processional, when bridesmaids make their way down the aisle.  This leads to the Bride's entrance, when a striking change in the music moves your attendees to stand.

A recessional is played once you are presented, following with exit music for guests to leave by, continuing in the background during your receiving line. There are several time honored selections to choose from, many of which are classically composed.  The lists below contain these along with many modern tracks most often used by our clients.
