August Wedding at The Barn at Gibbet Hill

Libby and Bryant used the Barn at Gibbet Hill as their wedding venue.

This is one of my favorite places for weddings. Ceremonies are usually held on the lawn with a hillside full of cows in the background. Sometimes you can even hear them mooing.

We played two processionals, Hymne by Vangelis and Canon in D by Pachelbel. We played One Hand, One Heart, from West Side Story, after the first reading. The recessional was a contemporary popular song called Bittersweet Symphony.

Cocktail hour was held on the deck overlooking the lawn.

Chatham Bars Inn July Wedding

Louise and Katie were married at beautiful Chatham Bars Inn in Chatham, Massachusetts.

It was an ocean-side ceremony, on the beach yet close enough for our violin, cello and keyboard trio to sit in the shade of the covered deck.

There was a half hour of prelude music including In My Life, Yellow, Wind Beneath My Wings, Bittersweet Symphony, Glasgow Love Theme, Can’t Help Falling in Love and Strangers in the Night.

Processionals were Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World and A Thousand Years. The band played a CD of Gone, Gone, Gone for the recessional. Cocktail hour featured old jazz standards and contemporary popular songs.

Special thanks go to CBI event coordinators Kate Mann and Clarissa Davis. They’re great to work with and always make things go smoothly.

Katherine & Matt at Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, RI

One of the things I like best about playing at Glen Manor House is working with Event Coordinator Katie Wilkinson. She manages to amaze me every time we play a wedding at Glen Manor. There are so many details that go into creating a beautiful wedding and the event coordinator or wedding planner is the person who makes sure it all goes smoothly.

Our musicians always work with a comprehensive rundown in our music books. This list includes not only the selected music but also the order of bridal party entrances. (We count as people enter so we know when to switch to the next piece.) Our notes also include the exact words the officiant will say at the end of the ceremony so we can start playing the recessional just as the newlyweds turn to walk up the aisle.

Katherine and Matt chose two processionals for their Glen Manor House wedding. The bridal party entered to Handel Air while Katherine was escorted down the aisle by her father to Pachelbel Canon in D. The recessional was Handel La Rejouissance.

We played a mix of classical pieces and contemporary popular songs for the cocktail hour.

Angela & William at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, RI

It was a perfect July day for a wedding on the lawn at Rosecliff Mansion.

This venue is absolutely spectacular with a huge lawn overlooking the water. The ballroom is everything you’d expect in one of the premier Newport homes.

Our string quartet played Canon and Trumpet Voluntary for the processionals with Allegro from Spring, the Four Seasons, as the recessional. Cocktail hour featured a mix of styles including classical, jazz standards, Broadway tunes and popular songs.

We had a great time playing all of it!

Erica Phillips from Moran Catering was the coordinator. We love working with her.

Searles Castle Garden Wedding

Jessica and John chose the very regal Searles Castle in Windham, New Hampshire as their wedding venue.

The grounds were spectacular on this beautiful, sunny July day.

Jessica’s grandmother, Liz, was in charge of the music and she took the responsibility seriously. I enjoyed working out all of the details over a period of several months before the wedding.

We decided on three processionals, one for the parents, one for the bridesmaids and one for the bride. They were Largo from Winter, The Four Seasons, Canon in D and Schubert’s Ave Maria. Westminster Hymn was played during a memorial moment to remember loved ones who couldn’t attend. Allegro from Spring, The Four Seasons was the recessional. We moved inside the castle to play a mix of waltzes, old jazz standards and tangos for cocktail hour.

Claire & Alex at Tupper Manor

Tupper Manor in Beverly has a lovely lawn with a beautiful fountain as the backdrop for wedding ceremonies. And that’s where Claire and Alex planned to get married. Unfortunately the weather gods had other plans; rain meant that their wedding had to be moved indoors.

Fortunately, it’s also lovely inside Tupper Manor so any disappointment was quickly dissipated by a beautiful interior as well as the opportunity for everyone in the wedding to stay warm and dry. Alex is in the military so several of the groomsmen joined him wearing uniforms. Wow!!

The processionals were Bach Air for grandparents and parents, Canon in D for seven bridesmaids escorted by seven groomsmen and La Vie En Rose for Claire and her dad.

We also played Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing after the reciting of The Lord’s Prayer. Our string quartet ended with Ode to Joy as the recessional.

Cocktail hour was a mix of light classical music and old jazz standards.
