Outer Banks Wedding Music

Roy's "Sweet 116" Ceremony Music Selections

Ceremony music is the music played during the ceremony; ie., prelude, pre-processional, processional, ceremony, recessional and postlude.

We begin prelude music 30 minutes before the ceremony while guests are arriving, socializing or taking their seats. The pre-processional music is the seating of the mothers and family and/or the groom and officiant taking their places. The processional music is played as the wedding party (bridesmaids with their song and the bride with her song) enter the ceremony site. Ceremony music is played during the ceremony (unity candle, special music, etc.). Recessional music is played as the wedding party and family leaves the ceremony site. Postlude music is played while guests leave the ceremony site (or any combination or variation thereof).

Many of the songs listed below have cross-over value; meaning a predule song could be used for a bridal entrance, or a postlude song could be used for a processional...

Also bear in mind that professional orchestral recordings of the following selections have little or anything to do with the way your real wedding music will sound. We are much more personal, and intimate, and easier to work with.
