When I find myself attending a black wedding, I know that I’m in for a treat when it comes to music. I go in expecting to hear some of my favorite classic love songs spouted from the organ, piano or whatever musical instrument the soon-to-be husband and wife pulled together for the event. Every time you find yourself attending a black wedding, there is a high probability these classics will be played at some point during the ceremony.
