The officiant at the wedding at High West Refectory at Blue Sky Ranch was the funniest we've ever heard. He had the wedding guests and the bride and groom rolling with laughter! This was perhaps the windiest wedding we've ever played as well. Thank goodness for clothespins that keep our music stable, but even with this advanced technology, strong wind gusts blew our binders closed a few times. Thankfully, we have been playing together long enough that we can get through the last few bars of most of our repertoire without the music.
We played for about an hour in the frigid wind as guests mingled inside and out. Then guests gathered in the garden under a vivid blue sky to await the ceremony. Perhaps my favorite part of the wedding was when, instead of a formal processional, the bride and groom casually walked out together as we played La Vie En Rose. We enjoyed the happy ceremony, and were then relieved to move inside for another hour of celebration.
