Tina & Dustin at Snowbasin

It was a beautiful autumn day. The leaves were in their peak of varying shades of copper. Although a bit chilly, the skies were blue and the sun was shining. It's hard to beat a mountain wedding in October.

During the beautiful ceremony, Tina was asked to hold Dustin's hand, palm up, so she could see what a gift they are to her. And likewise, Dustin held Tina's hands the same way.

An Excerpt of Roads Go Ever On by J. R. R. Tolkien was read:

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,By caves where never sun has shone,By streams that never find the sea;Over snow by winter sown,And through the merry flowers of June,Over grass and over stone,And under mountains in the moon.

Kim & Ian

Snowbasin's Needles lodge is a gorgeous venue for a wedding. Guests take a gondola ride to the top of a mountain on which sits a rustic but elegant lodge with a stunning view of the mountains and valley below.

Kim and Ian's ceremony was so sweet with tender vows spoken to each other and ending with the bride and groom escorting the guests back down the aisle. We've played for hundreds of weddings but I'm always surprised by new traditions.

Parrish/Nielson Wedding at Snowbasin


Tonight we played for a beautiful wedding ceremony and dinner at Snowbasin Resort. The bride walked down the aisle to Canon in D, accompanied by two adorable flower girls. When the happy couple was pronounced man and wife, we played Brandenburg Concerto by Bach while they recessed down the aisle.

During the dinner hour, we played music by The Beatles, Coldplay, The Verve, Tschaikowsky, Gershwin, and Debussy among others.

We wish Mr. and Mrs. Nielson all the best in their new life together!
