This is volume 02 of the Wedding Music series. As stated before much of this list was an exercise in compromise between my wife and I. Ultimately I was very happy with the music we came up with (and that might be because she gave me complete free reign for background music at the reception. Stay tuned for those posts).

Below are the tracks that we used during the actual ceremony. At one point in time we were going to have a live string quartet play songs during the wedding, but we couldn’t find proper sheet music for the songs we wanted and it became too much of a hassle to have a quartet learn all of this music by ear. We did have a piano player play a song live during the ceremony, but I don’t have a recording of that.
mp3 : Pride and Prejudice – The Secret Life of Daydreams
mp3 : Pride and Prejudice – Dawn
mp3 : Vitamin String Quartet – Yellow (Coldplay Cover)
mp3 : Vitamin String Quartet – Hoppipolla (Sigur Ros Cover)
mp3 : Coldplay – Lovers In Japan (Osaka Sun Mix)
Lovers in Japan is the track that we used to exit from the church where we were married. The Vitamin String Quartet songs are from an ever rotating, ever evolving, ever amazing group on the west coast that continues to provide excellent string quartet interpretations of influential modern music. They claim on their website that they will be offering sheet music in the future, but at the time of our wedding the best we could find was audio tracks (fortunately the church had a great sound system and decent acoustics).
