From the traditional ‘Canon in D’ to the more recent favorites such as Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’, choosing your wedding ceremony songs that resonate with you & your partner is key.  Although it’s sometimes an overlooked detail during planning, imagine the relaxing task of picking your wedding music! Are you a fan of Taylor Swift? Check out instrumental versions of her songs! These songs are great for the processional which can include seating of family, bridal party entrance and, my favorite, the bridal processional.
