A New Take on Your Favorite Songs

I was at a tasting today with a client when we started to talk about ceremony music. My bride said she wanted something different and not the typical wedding songs. This reminded me of when I saw the “Today Show” Wedding this year. I heard the string quartet as the bride walked down the aisle and had goose bumps. They were playing “Empire State of Mind” by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys and it sounded so elegant and so well placed, after all they were in the middle of New York.. What better song to celebrate.. and what a classy way to play it!!! A few weeks ago I had a bride have her bridesmaids process down to “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga. Not only are these great ways to personalize your ceremony, but I also think it puts a fresh spin on your ceremony! These ideas can easily be customized for your pianist, string quartet or guitarist. It’s amazing how everything can sound elegant when played on a string instrament. Here a few a examples that I found online:

  1. I love your post! Songs can take on a whole new perspective when using different instrumentation. Here are a couple more song ideas.

    The Main Theme from Star Wars using cool sounds performed on a synthesizer made for a dramatic recessional. The whole bridal party recessed waving Star Wars lightsabers.

    Another couple requested Peter Gabriel's 'Book of Love' which I arranged for violin and piano. It was perfect for the lighting of their unity candle.

    I hope other people post some of their unique song ideas in response to your blog!
