  A NEW STRINGS INITIATIVE

wedding music

Welcome and Congratulations! 

The Moxie Strings know the importance that music plays in every ceremony, and are honored to have contributed their music to over 100 weddings in the last 7 years. Their original material along with the Celtic and Americana traditions offer many heart-felt tunes that make for a wonderful ceremony. Below is a list of suggestions, but many other possibilities exist. The Moxie Strings are classically-trained classical musicians and their repertoire includes many of the traditional wedding pieces in addition to what you hear here. They are also happy to write string arrangements of popular songs or pieces from other traditions. Please don't hesitate to suggest a song that is special to you.


Processional

This collection of tunes have a slow melody but rhythmic accompaniment, making them ideal for walking down the aisle. They work nicely for the seating of the mothers, bridesmaids, or bride. Many of the tunes have several parts, any of which could be omitted, re-structured, or played independently.

These are all recommendations, and certainly not all that is available. It is our goal to ensure that your ceremony sounds and feels exactly like you've always envisioned!

Happy Planning!


Sincerely, 

Diana and Alison
