Hildegard String Quartet Wedding Menu

Guest Arrival (about 15 minutes)

Music to create a festive and elegant atmosphere as guests arrive and find their seats.  We typically make these selections.


Between two and five selections depending on who will be processing in your ceremony, plus a recessional selection.  Here are some pieces already in our repertoire that work well for ceremonies:


  • Air from Suite in D (Bach)

  • II: Largo from Concerto for Two Violins (Bach)

  • Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach)

  • Chanson de Matin (Elgar)

  • Chanson de Nuit (Elgar)

  • Salut d’Amour (Elgar)

  • Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (Handel)

  • Canon in D (Pachelbel)

Contemporary and Pop

  • A Thousand Years (Christina Perri)

  • Dreams (The Cranberries)

  • Over the Rainbow (Harold Arlen)

  • Yellow (Coldplay)

  • Can’t Help Fallin in Love (Elvis Presley)

  • Wildest Dreams (Taylor Swift)

Create Your Wedding Soundtrack

Our song list is meant as inspiration for your personalized musical choices.  If there is another song you would like in your ceremony, please let us know.  We will work to find the best arrangement of the song you want to hear.  If we can’t find an arrangement for the song that is special to you, you can commission a piece for us to play.

Cocktail Hour (30-60 minutes)

Background music as guests mingle following the ceremony and before a DJ or band arrives.  We play a standard repertoire, but let us know if you have any special requests.
