At 6:30 am, we played A Million Dreams in the courtyard of The Grand America Hotel as a man dressed in a white suit walked on white carpet laced with white rose petals to his girlfriend who planned this grand gesture to propose to him! After he said YES, we played All of Me by John Legend as the couple celebrated their brand new engagement. During their photo session we continued serenading them with Marry You by Bruno Mars, You’re My Best Friend, and concluded with Happy Together.
With stunning flower arrangements accompanied by classy string quartet music, we played Andrea Bocelli’s Con te Patiro for the wedding processional and Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love for the bride’s walk down this exquisite aisle. After they were pronounced husband and wife and introduced as Mr. & Mrs., we played 500 Miles by the Proclaimers as guests cheered during their recessional. We then moved to the upper terrace of the beautiful St. Regis and serenaded friends and family during the cocktail hour. We were told the brides mother loves Elton John so we made sure to play Your Song for her. Congratulations to Sarah and Jason!
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!
Today we had the pleasure of providing the special music at the New Year worship service at Christ United Methodist Church in Salt Lake City. Prelude: To a Wild Rose (MacDowell), Offertory: Barcarolle (Offenbach), Special Music: Interludium in Mode Antico (Glazounow).
We learned several new pieces and updated our repertoire… gearing up for and looking forward to wedding season 2018! To book your date, email email@example.com
Today’s be-annual quartet management meeting is fueled by leftover Halloween Candy!
Congratulations to Kelsey and Josh. This fun couple tied the knot surrounded by family, friends, and a beautiful sky. This setting for a wedding ceremony will take your breath away!
I loved this couple's choice of fun, unique ceremony music:
Bridal Party: Coldplay, Paradise
Bride Processional: John Legend, All of Me
Recessional: Pompeii, Bastille
Skylodge at Summit Powder Mountain is a cluster of glass yurts with a large deck that offers spectacular views. You can actually see Cache Valley, Antelope Island, and Pineview all while standing in one spot.
The ceremony ended with a well-timed, stunning sunset!
Processional song - A Thousand Years
Bride's entrance -- Canon in D
Recessional song - Here comes the Sun
For the ceremony, the happy couple requested:
Canon in D – Pachelbel,
Jesu, Joy of Mans Desiring - Bach
Here Comes the Sun – Beatles
When Tim saw his bride, his eyes got a little wet. Then, during the ceremony, Morgan laugh/cried as she looked at him and they happy cried together. Morgan and Tim lit their candles, and together lit the unity candle, with the help of their brothers as wind shields.
The wedding party went inside for cozy cocktails just as we started to feel the chilly temps. We accompanied cocktails and dinner in the dining room. Some selections were:
Can’t Help Falling In Love with You – Elvis Presley
Oh Happy Day - Hawkins
The Rose – McBroom
Bittersweet Symphony – Mick Jagger
When I’m 64 – Beatles
Viva La Vida – Coldpllay
As Time Goes By - Hupfeld
You Raise Me Up – Josh Groban
Hallelujah – Cohen
Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
Wouldn’t It Be Nice – Beach Boys
Sweet Home Alabama – Van Zant, King, Rossington
Paradise – Coldplay
Vocalise - Rachmaninoff
Surely the Presence of the Lord is in This Place – Wolfe
We added a new song to our repertoire at the request of this adorable couple. We now play Ed Sheeran's "Thinking out Loud." Such a fun piece to play and so fitting for a wedding!
Melissa and Chase wanted very personalized music. Here are their selections:
Procession: "Adore You" by Miley Cyrus
Bride's walk down the aisle: "All of Me" by John Legend
Recessional: "Without You" by Usher
We enjoyed being a part of this cute couple's big day!
Prior to the ceremony the bride and groom shared their stories, first telling a little about their backgrounds, then their meeting and engagement. They wanted their families and friends to connect and understand the love that brought these two together... so sweet!
We played Bach's Arioso for the procession. For any brides who are undecided about what music to walk to go listen to this piece... it may just make up your mind for you.
|The Flagstaff Deck at Stein Erikson Lodge|
The bride and groom braved an outdoor wedding in April on the Flagstaff Deck of Deer Valley's Stein Erikson Lodge. The view was stunning with the bright white snow and sunshine.
The couple requested pieces from our classical list for the ceremony and cocktail hour including Handel's La Rejoussance and Bach's Brandenburg Concerto which complemented well their classical ceremony and venue.
Best wishes to this sweet couple!
The couple chose Handel's Water Music for their processional. The bride and her Father walked down the aisle to Canon in D. The beauty of the outdoors mixed with the program and music created an atmosphere of love and a memorable day.
