Weddings

You’ve been dreaming of this day since you were a little girl. For that one moment on that perfect day when time will stop for just a few minutes as you make your way down the aisle and into the arms of the man who you know you were always meant to marry.

We love weddings! We know that there is nothing more exhilarating than the excitement and happiness that your wedding day will bring. It will be one of the most special days of your life, and we are honored that you are considering us to be a part of it. We want to help make your dream wedding become a reality.

We have many years of experience performing for weddings. We are confident that whatever your musical taste, we can help you pick the right music for this very special occasion. One of the great benefits of choosing us to perform at your ceremony is that brass plays beautifully in most all locations. Whether your wedding is going to be held indoors or out, our brass quintet will play for you the regal, enchanting, elegant music that your wedding deserves.

To book us for your wedding, please contact us via phone at (804) 920-9850, or via e-mail. You’ll be invited to attend one of our practice sessions in Midlothian, VA, where we will discuss different musical options for your wedding. Please feel free to bring as many guests with you as you’d like. If you already have certain pieces of music in mind, please let us know and we’ll be more than happy to play them for you. Otherwise, we will play a variety of pieces to see which ones most appeal to you.

We will also discuss which pieces to play for the different parts of your ceremony. For example, many couples decide to have a different song playing for the Mother’s entrance, the Bride’s Maid’s processional, and then for the Bridal March. Basically, this is the time for us to get to know you, get a feel for your personal musical preferences, and find out how we can best help you realize your dream wedding. This is your special day and we’re here to serve your needs. Therefore, please let us know if you have any special musical requests. If there is a certain hymn that you would like played during your ceremony, special music to be played during a Unity Candle lighting, or if you would like for us to play The Lord’s Prayer during the ceremony, please let us know.

At least one member from our ensemble will attend your wedding rehearsal. This will help us learn the timings for how long to play each musical piece. We will also speak with your wedding planner, if you have one, to better coordinate the music for the ceremony.

On your wedding day, we typically provide about 20 minutes of prelude music prior to the start of the ceremony. After you are pronounced Man and Wife, we will play a festive recessional for you and your wedding party to exit to. We will then play another piece for your guests to exit to.

We have many years of experience performing at weddings and we are confident that we can help your wedding run smoothly. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your interest in Commonwealth Brass!
