Getting married? Having trouble picking out songs for those formal parts of the wedding? Well, I have been a wedding DJ for 18 years and I can help you plan every song from the march down the aisle to the closing song of the reception. Today I am focusing on the ceremony recessionals. This is the song that you and your significant other will walk away from at the conclusion of your ceremony. This list steps away from the classic traditional artists like Bach, Handel, & Mendelssohn, and brings a unique approach using modern day music. Enjoy!
