San Antonio Wedding Musician: Original Processional Music

Welcome back to Austin wedding music / San Antonio wedding music 101!

If you’re struggling to find an original song to walk down the aisle to during your wedding, your first instinct might be to go with Pachabel’s ‘Canon in D.’ It’s a well-loved, beautifully-composed piece … but it’s not the most original set for weddings these days. The most important thing is that you enjoy your wedding music, but if you really want to be a little different, here are a few suggestions for you (with links to listen to them on Spotify):

  • Palladiopopularized by De Beers’ diamond commercials in the 1990’s
  • Lover’s Concerto – a pop song written by American songwriters Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell and recorded in 1965 by The Toys.
  • Moon River – composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics written by Johnny Mercer. It received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for its first performance by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
  • Joy – Based on Henry Mancini’s ‘Jesu Joy of Man’s Desire.’
  • Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances No. 4The Slavonic Dances are a series of 16 orchestral pieces composed by Antonín Dvořák in 1878 and 1886.
  • Carmina Buranais a scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff in 1935 and 1936. It is based on 24 of the poems found in the medieval collection by the same name.
  • Uf Dem Anger – Part of Carmina Burana (see above)
