God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God,
and God abides in them.

Below you will find the general layout of the service along with selections that we feel fit best.  Once you have made your selections, please email us and include the following information: couple’s names, contact phone number(s), email address, and wedding date along with the pre-service, processional and recessional music that you would like to use. If you have any questions, please call (717-737-9921 ext 229) or email Tim Koch, Director of Music.

Layout of Service:

Pre-Service Music (prelude) – This section usually contains 5 musical selections (including optional vocal solos) and totals approximately 20 – 25 minutes.  If you are having a vocalist, we suggest that they sing their first selection when all of your guests are seated.

Mid-Ceremony Vocals (optional) – If you are using a vocalist, we recommend having them perform once during the prelude and then one or two more songs during the ceremony.  This music would be selected directly with your vocalist and organist.

Processional – Once your attendants begin walking down the aisle, the processional music will begin.  Many times, two songs will be selected for the processional.

Recessional –  This is the music that will play as you and your attendants exit the church.

Here is a sample of what a service would look like.
(This is one of our most popular selections.)
