This season’s wedding couples are currently nailing down their wedding music choices – with some interesting picks! It’s no surprise that the Mendelssohn Wedding March takes first place as a ceremony music choice, in my experience so far. And Pachelbel’s Canon in D is coming out once again as the top processional choice, and second ceremony music choice overall. But what surprised me is the current third place choice.

Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” seems to be taking a number 3 position in the list of top ceremony music choices for couples I’ll be working with in 2015! In one case, it will serve as processional for the wedding party, in another case as processional for the bride, and in yet another as recessional.

“How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.
And all along I believed I would find you.
Time has brought your heart to me.
I have loved you for a thousand years.
I’ll love you for a thousand more.”

The final choices are still being decided for many couples – stay tuned for updates on this season’s couples’ choices in ceremony music!

Lisa Carlson performs for weddings and other occasions throughout Vermont and beyond, with musical offerings ranging from a quartet of flute with violin, viola and cello, to solo flute, to duos of flute with harp, violin, piano, and more. She also teaches flute in Montpelier, Vermont and Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Gina and Tim frequently "get away from it all" at Gina's father's log cabin in the woods of Vermont, and they knew they wanted their friends and family to have that same feeling at their June wedding. Their whimsical, rustic celebration started with an intimate ceremony under a covered bridge. With the sound of the babbling brook beneath them, and those closest to their hearts around them, Gina and Tim exchanged "I dos". The elegant Hermitage Inn provided the perfect backdrop for the rest of the day's festivities. Here are some highlights from Gina;

Marry when the year is new, always loving, kind, and true.
When February birds do mate, you may wed, nor dread your fate.

If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you'll know.
Marry in April when you can, joy for maiden and for man.

Marry in the month of May, you will surely rue the day.
Marry when June roses blow, over land and sea you'll go.

They who in July do wed, must labor always for their bread.
Whoever wed in August be, many a change are sure to see.

Marry in September's shine, your living will be rich and fine.
If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.

If you wed in bleak November, only joy will come, remember.
When December's rain fall fast, marry and true love will last.

Fenway Wedding Inspiration

Nothing evokes the feeling of summer quite like hot dogs, Cracker Jacks, and baseball. As the snow starts to melt and we gear up for the next season, let your heart warm up with this gorgeous styled shoot from Kelly Cronin Photography. Set in Fenway, our country's oldest baseball stadium, with it's just-worn-enough patina and charming, vintage style, it has all the necessary elements for an iconic event.

A light blue summer suit with shorts paired with a bowtie and navy Keds is a perfect pairing to the bride's short and sleeveless sheer number. The kelly green backdrop of the Green Monster goes perfectly with glittery, gold accessories and who wouldn't love to find this bling as their Cracker Jack prize?
