Wedding Music 

The music for a wedding should reflect the Christian joy of a couple dedicating their lives to one another in the sight of God.  Our organists are familiar with a wide variety of music, and will be happy to assist the bride and the groom in finding sacred music which reflects the couple's unique feelings, yet upholds the integrity of the worship service. 

All musical selections will be discussed with and approved by the organist. To assist you in making music selections, copies of the FUMC Wedding Music Sampler compact disc recording are available from the FUMC Music Office. 

Only the staff organists of this church shall play the church's organs.  The organist will be happy to arrange for one of our excellent vocal soloists, if desired.  If the bride or groom asks a friend to sing at the wedding, a rehearsal time can be arranged with the organist.  The soloist must have the music prepared before the rehearsal, and should bring a copy of the sheet music for the organist.  Arrangements for any additional instrumentalists, if desired, must be made by our organist.  Choosing music from the Wedding Music Sampler CD may make a personal interview with the organist unnecessary.  No recorded music will be used in the wedding service itself.
