Asheville NC Elopement Playlist

Asheville NC Elopement Playlist

(32min – 13 songs) by Philip Lingle

This elopement playlist will create a very soothing and sophisticated vibe for any small wedding ceremony. I have officiated many elopements and small weddings, and there always seems to be something missing when there’s no prelude or ceremony music. I created this playlist on Apple Music so I can have something to cue up from my phone about 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony when there’s no DJ or musicians involved. My company, Love & Wisdom Inc., works with a classical guitarist who plays at some of our elopements, and that’s where I got the inspiration for this list.

The wedding party entrance song can be left out if there’s no wedding party, or it can be used for just the officiant and groom to walk in to. It’s best if someone can fade it out and start the bride’s song when she’s ready, otherwise, it might feel too long. At the end of the ceremony, someone will need to start the recessional song for the couple to walk out to. From there I recommend switching to a more upbeat playlist to set the tone for the celebration!
