When it comes to your ceremony song choices, did you go with traditional wedding songs like “Here Comes The Bride”? Or are you using more modern songs that have a special meaning between you and your fiance(e)?

    Traditional, we are getting married in a church, so only Christian songs allowed.

    We are actually walking down together to the song "The Very Thought of you". The music during the ceremony will be from the 20's and 30's to go along with our Harlem Renaissance theme.

    We're using classical music, but with a modern twist. It'll be less known parts of movie scores.

    Modern! FH is walking down to “Something” by The Beatles (his favorite band!) and I’m walking down to “Moon River” (Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite movies!) We we’re tired of hearing people walk down the aisle to “A Thousand Years” so we wanted to do something that had meaning to us.

    Kind of both. Processional is Canon in D for the parents, A Very Respectable Hobbit for wedding party, and the bridal march for me. Recessional is Concerning Hobbits.
