For the last 6 months, I've been looking on here for ceremony music. We are getting married in a Catholic Church (not having a mass though, just the ceremony), so we can't use secular/popular music.

In one hour, we enjoyed him playing the huge organ and decided on all of the ceremony music. I wanted to share for the rest of you Brides who are looking for Catholic Church-appropriate music.
Prelude Music Selections: Selections from "Water Music" - Handel
Seating of the Mothers: Ave Maria - Schubert
Processional - Bridesmaids: Air on the G String - Bach
Processional - Bride: Prince of Denmarks March - Clarke
Responsorial: Psalm 118: Let Us Rejoice - Haugen
Gospel Acclamation: Celtic Alleluia - Walker
Unity Candle: Meditation from "Thais" - Massanet
Sign of Peace: Danse Pastorale - Vivaldi (3rd movement from Spring Concerto)
Recessional: Hornpipe (Water Music) - Handel
All of these will be playedon the organ. I do warn you thought that if you download songs and listen to them on a piano or strings, they might sound different. I had some songs picked that just didn't sound good on the organ. Other songs I ruled out sounded awesome on the organ.
