This is a guide to help you find ceremony music for your wedding day. Every wedding is different and every wedding couple has their own personal tastes in music. Creating your soundtrack for the most important day of your life can be a daunting task. Founder of Epic 1 DJ ,DJ Todd Allan has created Epic playlists and removed all of the fluff. These songs, digital albums and artists are used at our weekly weddings.
In the old days, The bridal party walked down the aisle to, “Canon in D”. The bride would walk down the aisle to, “Here comes the bride”. In 2017 brides and bridal parties walk down the aisle to every style of music you could imagine.

One of my favorite artists for classical wedding songs, is The O’Neill Brothers. The album, A Day To Remember features a great version of “Canon in D”.
