Marriage Proposal at Sunrise!

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.

Sarah & Jason

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 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!

Josh & Kelsey

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!

Lindsay & John

It was a hot July day, but so nice to be a part of Lindsay and John's wedding ceremony next to a refreshing pond, under the shade of several giant cottonwood trees. Glass chandaliers hung from their branches, and a giant empty picture frame served as the ceremony backdrop.



Ceremony selections:
Processional song - A Thousand Years
Bride's entrance -- Canon in D
Recessional song - Here comes the Sun

Above the Heat at Alta Lodge

Alta Lodge is nestled at the top of the mountains with a beautiful, green and blue mountain backdrop. This July day was downright balmy with thick clouds and a slight breeze. But the weather held out perfectly for the outdoor wedding ceremony on the deck.

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

Evelyn and Kevin

We performed for a ceremony and cocktail hour at a private residence tucked away in the woods in Park City. The setting was stunning for a wedding. The forest was so peaceful and beautiful and the bride and groom invited just a small group of family and friends which created a really sweet ceremony.



This couple was so in love. The officiant mentioned a few times that it was meant for them to be together and by their interactions it truely seemed so.
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!




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.

Melissa & Chase

This evening we played for a ceremony on the patio at the Grand America followed by a fun cocktail hour in one of their exquisite ballrooms.
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!


"Benanna" Wedding

Ben and Anna were married this evening on the deck at Millcreek Inn. They jokingly call themselves "Benanna" now.  This couple was all out adorable. Their ceremony was unlike any I've attended... and after playing for weddings for 12 years now that's saying a lot.
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.


Stein Erikson Wedding

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!

Barlow Reception

We were thrilled to be invited to play for another wedding reception at this Layton residence — we played for the bride's sister's reception a few years ago. The bride and groom looked stunning and happy. We played a variety of pieces to fit the mood of the party which included Tchaicovsky's Sleeping Beauty Waltz so some of the little girls at the reception could dance... so cute!

Cromar Hall Wedding

Spring is such a beautiful time of year for an outdoor wedding. We provided ceremony music for an intimate wedding at Tuscany Restaurant in Holladay today. Surrounded by their closest friends and Family the bride and groom tied the knot in the garden outside the restaurant.


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.
