Leah + Tom’s wedding at Calgary Olympic Park August 13 2016, Calgary wedding ceremony music

 

The bride and groom originally planned this wedding ceremony outdoors at Canada Olympic Park, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, and the ceremony was moved indoors. That was a smart choice, and the guests were able to enjoy themselves, without any issues from rain! Regarding the music selections, Leah and Tom were interested in our traditional selections, which looked like this. Everything worked out beautifully, and sounded even better!

 

Processional: Pachelbel Canon

Signing: Vivaldi Largo from the Four Seasons (Winter)

Recessional: Handel Hornpipe II

Cristina + Ben wedding at The River Cafe July 2, 2016, Calgary wedding ceremony music

This wedding was held on the outdoor patio of the River Cafe in Calgary—a beautiful location, and the musical selections were just as inspiring. For the ceremony Cristina and Ben chose primarily classical selections (with a modern and upbeat song at the finale of the ceremony) followed by contemporary music during the reception portion.  All of these songs work particularly well with the string ensemble they chose: the violin and cello duo—our most popular ensemble! Everything was seamless and beautiful, and finely coordinated as always with the talented planner at Evelyn Clark weddings. Thanks everyone!

Processional (wedding party and bridesmaids): Pachelbel Canon

Alicia + John’s wedding ceremony at Starling Lane Vineyard July 9, 2016, Victoria BC wedding ceremony music

Our string ensembles have had the pleasure of performing at Starling Lane Vineyard several times in the past, and we are happy to be back. Working with Alicia on choosing the music was a pleasure—one of the songs that she particularly wanted during the ceremony was Bridge over Troubled Water, and were extremely happy to be able to incorporate this songs during the ceremony. The signing portion was the perfect place to perform this song, and it was followed beautifully by the recessional music with concluded the ceremony sin such a lovely way.
