One fun way to enhance your ceremony is to fake out your guests at the recessional. I can start with a very traditional version of “The Wedding March” and then, after a few seconds, mix in to something contemporary and upbeat.

My favorite way to do this is with a song that’s DRAMATICALLY different. Here’s a sample that goes from Felix Mendelssohn into James Brown’s “I Feel Good.”

Take a listen:

Some other songs that I’ve done include Come and Get Your Love, Everything is Awesome, Happy, I’m a Believer, Say Hey (I Love You), Signed Sealed Delivered, You Make My Dreams and, of course for the couple that want to Rick Roll everyone, Never Gonna Give you Up.
