We learned a handful of new pieces for Kimberly's wedding to Mr. Anderson:
It Had To Be You
Can't Help Falling In Love
Do You Realize
Here Comes The Sun
Only Time

Our last prelude piece was The Prayer, which was a special surprise for the mother of the bride. We played Canon in D for the wedding line processional, which included the couple's cat as ring bearer. The bride and groom chose traditional pieces for their ceremony: Bridal Chorus for Kimberly's processional and Wedding March for the recessional.

We love playing outdoor weddings in Utah's mountains. In August, there is no better place to have a wedding than on the top of a mountain. The sunshine is strong, but the altitude and slight breeze keep temperatures under control. And chair lifts are fun!

Funicular: it looks like a rollar coaster but it goes really slow and shuttles hotel and wedding guests in a big elevator type contraption up and down the mountain side.

Our ride up the funicular with all our instruments and music.

It was a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony. But don't let the picture fool you. There was much wind and rain.
We took shelter under a large umbrella. One of us even played up on the rocks in order to stay out of the rain. It was eventful, but we pulled it off without a hitch. Afterward, we played for the cocktail hour (which got moved indoors).

Rebekah found a new friend!
It was so fun to have Rebekah (my sister) back for a gig so many years later - she was a member of the quartet from 2002-2004 before she moved to Tucson, AZ to get her violin performance undergraduate degree. She is now working on her Master's in Violin Performance in Conneticut at the Hart School of Music so it was special to have her in town to play with us!
