Parents’ Processional: Happy Together

Groom & Groomsmen: Thinking Out Loud

Bridesmaids: One Call Away (her special request)

Flower Ceremony: The Feather Theme from Forrest Gump

Recessional: You’re My Best Friend & Marry You

It was a gorgeous morning for a wedding at Red Butte Garden. Blue skies, warm sun, soft breeze. We played a different piece for each group of the wedding party. As part of their vows, the two families performed a unity ceremony in which they pressed flowers to capture this moment in time. The bride requested a new song, which we were happy to learn just for her!

The whole format of the wedding was well planned and executed, just as would be expected from a military family!

Fragrance Garden Ceremony

We love playing in Red Butte’s beautiful Fragrance Garden and this is our view as loved ones walk to the ceremony pavilion filled with fragrant flowers growing overhead. For the wedding party processional we play Marry You by Bruno Mars followed by Christina Perry’s Thousand Years for the bride. I wish we had a picture of Mina walking in her lovely white dress; moments like this are so rewarding for us as we provide special music thoughtfully selected by the couple to support their love and the start of their life together. After they tied the knot we played Viva la Vida for their recessional as requested. They asked for a mix of popular and upbeat classical music for prelude and postlude.

Saved the Day at Red Butte Gardens

A frantic Mother of the bride called me the week of this wedding as their scheduled musicians for her daughter's ceremony had cancelled at the last minute. I made some quick calls to my group and we were able to play for this memorable ceremony.

The officiant went out of his way to get to know the bride and groom prior to the event. This was evidenced during the ceremony as he was able to talk with and about each of them as close friends. It really made the experience sweet for all in attendance.

Red Butte Garden offers such a beautiful and unique atmosphere for a wedding. Us musicians benefit too...we enjoy playing music outdoors!
