Everything was just perfect for this wedding! Though it had poured rain the night before, the sun came out bright and warm for this springtime, morning ceremony. Given the special place in my heart for historical homes, I thought the surroundings at Beaver Dam were glorious!
This ceremony was slightly different, as it was a Hindu wedding. The bride and groom wanted to blend the traditional Hindu ceremony with music they love, as you can see by the song choices:
Pre-Ceremony Music ~ The bride had a few requests that she thought would keep this time light and upbeat. Can You Feel The Love Tonight (Elton John), Fireflies (Owl City), Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach) to name a few.
Entrance of the Groom & Parents ~ Pachelbel’s Canon (Pachelbel)
Entrance of the Bride ~ Edelweiss (Rodgers/Hammerstein)
Ceremony Music ~ Since there are quite a few rituals and ceremonies used within a Hindu wedding, I played behind some of them. We Are Man & Wife (Michele Featherstone), Forever & A Day (Jewel).
Recessional~ Ode To Joy (Beethoven)
