Music

Wedding Repertoire

Pop music, movie themes, music from made for TV movies are not appropriate selections for a Catholic wedding ceremony.  Music should be liturgical/sacred in nature in order to support the sacred nature of the wedding ceremony. Classical selections are normally acceptable.
