Weddings

Wedding Music Planning Guide

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! I am honored to play a part in your special day and hope this page can help guide you as you plan for your ceremony. 

In a general sense, music that is appropriate for a Catholic Mass is appropriate for a Wedding Liturgy. It is not necessary for you to make any selections, but if you prefer to select the music, I have assembled a list of commonly used songs at Wedding Liturgies and provided recordings of me playing the songs below. 

If you are planning a Wedding within a Mass, this is what your music lineup will look like: 

Processional Song(s): 1 or 2 for Bridal Party & Bridal Entrance

Glory to God (optional: depends on priest's preference) 

Psalm Response 

Alleluia (Celtic Alleluia, unless otherwise requested)  

Unity Candle (optional, if allowed by parish) 

Preparation of Gifts/Offertory Song 

Mass Parts (These include the Holy, Memorial Acclamation, Great Amen, and Lamb of God. Mass of Creation will be used unless otherwise requested.)

Communion Song

Communion Reflection (optional) 

Blessing of the Virgin Mary (optional) 

Recessional Song

It is my hope that all in the assembly will lift their voices in joyful song together. If you would like to request a well-known religious song not found in your church's hymnals, I will do my best to accommodate your request. However, it will need to be approved through the music director, the presider, and the parish pastor. Popular love songs that are not religious are not permitted during the Mass. 

I can sing in many languages, so please don't hesitate to ask if you would like songs in another language. I have provided a few videos below of me singing in different languages. 

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions! I hope that this time of planning will be filled with the joy and peace of Christ as you grow closer together in love.
