La Caille Ceremony & Cocktails

La Caille is a special place, an oasis of beauty surrounded by brick paths filled with vibrant colored flowering plants. The mother of the bride was so warm and friendly when we arrived, the bride told us after we finished playing that it was her mother’s most important thing to have a string quartet play for her daughters wedding and we felt honored to fulfill that dream of hers! They requested all classical music for prelude, postlude and cocktail hour. For the processionals we played Air on G String for the wedding party, Canon in D for the Bride and Jesu Joy of Man’s Desire for their recessional. A very classy elegant event. Congratulations to Lily and her groom!


Sarah & Voss

Being from a family of violinists, this beautiful bride knew exactly what she wanted and we accommodated her every request with the famous violin solo “Lark Ascending” by Vaughan Williams for her walk down the aisle and Offenbach’s Barcarolle for the recessional. We also played Mediation from Thais and Gymnopedie by Satie prior to this lovely outdoor ceremony at La Caille Restaurant. Congratulations Sarah & Voss!


Alena & Slovodan

Alena and Slovodan were married in the garden room at La Caille today. It was an intimate setting with just their closest friends surrounding them. We played traditional pieces for the ceremony, Canon in D, Bridal Chorus, and Mendelssohn's Wedding March. Alena loves Tchaikovsky so we played Waltz of the Flowers and Sleeping Beauty Waltz during the cocktail hour.

La Caille

The flowers, the swans, the bunnies, the peacocks, even the sky collaborated today to create a stunning wedding ceremony at La Caille. We played traditional pieces for the processional with a twist for the recessional:

Procession: Canon in D
Bride's Procession: Bridal Chorus
Recessional: All You Need is Love

So sweet!

Katherine & Cameron

Today we played for a beautiful ceremony at La Caille, an ornate, French oasis in the middle of the Utah desert. It was a warm summer day with blue skies and sunshine. Even the birds enjoyed the ceremony. This swan stood near us the whole time, as well as a fancy blue peacock. A rooster even joined in the fun by crowing throughout the ceremony.

Mrs. Utah Pageant

2009 Mrs. Utah Pageant Contestants

We played for the Mrs. Utah Pageant Gala at LaCaille. This is Meili surrounded by the jungle of beautiful plants that are there.
On our way home from this lovely event, Michelle and Thalia realized they had the exact same snacks (fiber one chocolate chip bar and apple) - they are like twins!

This is me, Cathy (in the center), from my pageant days. Every time I attend a pageant event I am reminded of all the great times and wonderful opportunities I had as Miss Layton 1997.

The current Mrs. Utah, Emily Nelson, was at the Gala. She is a very impressive woman!

Alicia Warnock is the pageant director who contacted us about becoming sponsors for the Mrs. Utah Pageant. It was an honor to be a part of. The pageant is tonight and Strings of Elegance would like to wish all the pageant contestants the best of luck!
