For this lovely outdoor ceremony, we played pieces the bride selected that were were perfectly matched to the beautiful setting at the Thomas S. Monson Center and well suited to the couple. After playing Can't Help Falling in Love for the processional, the bride/groom gave presents to their parents while we played Moon River, and then attempted to light a candle while we played A Thousand Years. The gift giving was a super sweet and thoughtful touch while the candle lighting ceremony provided opportunity for the couple to show their resilience given the weather challenges. The wind provided some interesting moments during the service but love was in the air and all went smoothly anyway. We played You're My Best Friend as the new Mr. & Mrs. took their 1st steps as husband and wife.
We played for this lovely backyard ceremony and wedding dinner just a few days following severe windstorms that swept through Utah. The event was pulled off beautifully, you would not have known the damage that had been done to surrounding cities in this pristine landscape with calm weather. The bride came up to us afterward and gave us each a big hug and expressed with enthusiasm that the music was just how she pictured it and that she was so happy. Congratulations Ashley!
