AllMusic Review by

Windham Hill's A Windham Hill Wedding Album presents contemporary and classic wedding ceremony music as performed by the label's roster of artists. Paul McCandless' "Arioso," James Galway's "Canon," and Will Ackerman's "Processional" are among the tracks that offer more traditional wedding music, while Jim Brickman's "If You Believe," George Winston's "Loreta and Desiree's Bouquet," and the Turtle Island String Quartet's "Nocturne From String Quartet No. 2" have a more modern feel. Fortunately, both the more classically and more new age-inspired tracks blend well together, thanks to the musicians' like-minded approaches. Other highlights include Steve Erquiaga's "Nocturne in E Minor, Op. 72 No. 1," Tim Story's "Gymnopedie No. 1," and Liz Story's "Wedding Rain." Overall, A Windham Hill Wedding Album is a polished, slightly eclectic collection of music that is pretty enough to enhance a wedding without distracting too much from the day's big moments.
