Caffe Molise

Congratulations to Tiffany and Clinton! We played for their beautiful winter wedding dinner tonight to wrap up our 2018 wedding season. Special requests included Don’t Stop Believin’ and Can’t Help Falling in Love. We enjoyed celebrating with the happy couple and their guests.

We also enjoyed a post performance celebration of our own as we commemorated another fantastic string quartet year with dessert in the cafe following our performance. 2018 was a big success!

Salt Lake's Premier Wedding Show

We have been playing the Salt Lake's Premier Wedding Show since its inception. It's so fun for us to see all the new trends and ideas at the beginning of each new wedding season.

This year, the big trend in music is popular songs (like Clocks by Coldplay) played by a string quartet -- Hey that's us! Give us a call (or email or message us on Facebook) and we'll be happy to work with you to make sure your wedding is exactly how you've dreamed.

Luke & Kelli

Tonight we played a lovely wedding at Market Street Grill in Cottonwood. The ceremony was held outside in the heavy July heat, but no one seemed to mind. We were the lucky ones who were placed in the shade. The privilege of being part of others' wedding ceremonies never gets old for me. As someone who just celebrated her 7th wedding anniversary, I always feel grateful that I get to be reminded by the officiant of the things that are truly important. Today, Luke and Kelli's minister reminded me never to take the marriage relationship for granted, and that marriage is about putting your spouse's needs before your own. What an important thing to remember!

After we played the Wedding March, we followed the guests inside to accompany them during the cocktail hour. I was having such a great time playing first violin (I usually play second) that our remaining time passed very quickly and I almost missed our end time! The bride and groom then graciously invited the quartet to indulge in the delicious buffet, which we did. I was planning to buy a cup of Market Street's famous clam chowder on my way out, but a sit down dinner was so appreciated!

Congratulations Luke and Kelli! You make a gorgeous couple!

Lion House Luncheon

Today we played for a luncheon at the Lion House on Temple Square in SLC. The theme of the wedding was Disney Princesses. We played the music from Sleeping Beauty along with other popular love songs. The tables were adorned with princess figurines and the bride looked just like a princess!
After playing for the luncheon, I joined my husband, my toddler, and my 12-day old baby for lunch at the pantry in the basement of the Lion House. It was a beautiful day on Temple Square!

Salt Lake's Premier Wedding Show 2010

Today we played at the 2010 Salt Lake's Premier Wedding Show hosted by the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and Lion House. The above photo was taken from the 9th floor, where all the yummy hors d'ouvres and desserts were being served. We sat at the entrance to the room with all the goodies, so you can imagine how many of the show's guests we were able to greet as they walked by. If you were one of them, thanks for saying hello! We would love to play for your upcoming wedding ceremony or reception!

Bon appetit!

Becca & Sam

Tonight, we played for a scenic ceremony at The Pointe in Salt Lake City. The Pointe is a beautiful penthouse on the top floor of the Huntsman Cancer Institute by the University of Utah. The ceremony began at sunset and the view was spectacular. The guests enjoyed the warm glow of the November sun that shone through the floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides. The Wasatch Mountains stood majestically on our left, and the entire Salt Lake Valley was laid out on our right.

The wedding ceremony was officiated by the bride's brother. What a wonderful personal touch!

Lisa & Chris

Tonight, we played for Lisa and Chris' wedding reception at Arbor Manor in Taylorsville. It is often the case that the children in attendance show much more interest in our music than the adults, but it was especially apparent tonight. It may be because it is more socially acceptable for children to stare, or perhaps that children are more observant than their parents. Whatever the case, we had many little admirers tonight.

There was this handsome boy in his argyle vest.

And this dancing girl. (Notice the piece we were playing. Appropriate, no?)

She came over to visit after her waltz.

This little lady in red, who did not want to leave us.

And this future violinist, who already knows his way around a bow.

We had a wonderful time with our short friends tonight. Best wishes to the happy couple!

Robby & Jessica

I was asked to play solo violin at Jessica and Robby's wedding at Tuscany restaurant in SLC. It turned out to be a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, even though the thunderclouds were threatening to burst above us. Just as I arrived to set up, it started sprinkling. Then it began to rain harder... and harder. And miraculously, it then cleared up just in time!

I played Bach sonatas and partitas, which are always nice for solo pieces. And I enjoyed wearing something besides concert black!

Raji Barbir from TinyComet Photography took these photos. [, (801) 898-9682] After the ceremony, I had the privilege of playing the part of his assistant for the big group shot by holding a branch out of his way. I'm glad I could put my talents to good use!
