I started playing the fiddle when I was 5 years old, and from then on, people have always asked me to play for their wedding. Because I am a Montana based violinist I’ve had the opportunity to play at beautiful weddings across the state but I’ve even traveled as far away as La Joya, California to perform.
The most popular and beautiful wedding processional song to be played on the violin (in my opinion) is Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel. This is what most brides choose as their walking down the aisle song.
In addition to this, I normally perform some slow pieces more on the countryside such as Ashokan’s Farewell made popular by Jay Ungar and Ookpik Watlz. People love these songs and they always bring a tear to grandma’s eye, that’s how you know they’re good.
Because I also lead a country rock band in Bozeman I’m commonly asked to perform at the wedding reception full-band and solo violin for the processional.
This is a good situation for couples as they’re able to have solo violinist for the procession and a fun country rock band for the reception without having to hire multiple sets of musicians.
If you’re looking for someone to perform during the procession and/or during your wedding reception please shoot me an email and I’d love to hear about your event. We provide a full P.A. system for both situations and will help you celebrate your love in the most beautiful and fun way possible.
