Processional with no procession?

I am having an intimate wedding (between 15-20 guests). We will only have a best man and matron of honor present - no groomsmen, bridesmaids, flower girl, ring bearer, etc... no procession to speak of. It is outside, so I won't really even be coming down "the aisle." There is a specific song I had always wanted to have played at my wedding, but I can't seem to find anywhere during the ceremony to fit it in. The song, Canon, is generally used as a processional song when the bride enters, but I feel this song is just going too long since I'm not going to be walking down any aisle. Is there any way to fit in the music or should I just not have any music at all?

    background music during the ceremony?  As long as you can still hear everyone, theres no reason you can't set the mood with a little music =)

    I really like this idea!  I've never seen it done before but I think it would work very well with your small, outdoor ceremony.

    I think it could work as background music. You'll want to make sure your guests seated nearest to the musicians/DJ/whatever's playing the music can still hear the ceremony over the music. But it could be nice!
