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.

The ceremony was held on the lawn behind the inn, a lovely spot on a pond. Debbie Mireault was a big help with seating and cues.

The processionals were Canon in D for the bridal party and Bach Air for the bride. The recessional was Young Folks, a favorite of the Samantha and Patrick.

We moved across the street to the Addison Art Gallery for cocktail hour. We played a mix of classical, old jazz standards and popular songs. It sounded great with our violin, viola and cello trio.

Boston Public Library June Wedding

Ashley-Kay and Marco were married on a beautiful June evening in the courtyard of the Boston Public Library.

BPL

The bridal couple chose Hymne by Vangelis, Air by Bach and Canon by Pachelbel for the processionals. Canon is the most requested processional for the entrance of the bride. We’ve played it with solo violin and cello, as a duo, trio and quartet. We’ve also performed Canon on piano/keyboard with a variety of instruments. We never get tired of it.

The recessional was All of Me by John Legend. We also played the first dance song and All of Me just before everyone went inside for dinner. With the fountain as the backdrop for the dance, it couldn’t have been lovelier.

The Catered Affair took care of every detail from the ceremony through the end of the reception. Their food was really good, too! We enjoyed working with James Hanson who handled seating and cues for the ceremony.

Nonantum Resort June Wedding

It was a cool June day at the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine as Julie and Nabil said “I do.” What a perfect spot for a ceremony.

It was sunny and spectacularly beautiful by the water. Did I mention it was very windy, too?

Our violin/cello duo enjoyed working with Nonantum event planner Dawn Blystone and officiant Will Saunders.

Julie and Nabil chose Handel “Air” for the bridal party’s entrance. . Julie walked down the aisle to “Canon in D” by Pachelbel. The “Wedding March” was the recessional. Everyone moved inside for cocktail hour where we continued playing classical and old jazz standards until everyone moved into the ballroom for the dinner reception.

Wequassett Resort Seaside Wedding

Pleasant Bay is one of the most beautiful locations on Cape Cod and most couples hold their ceremony on the lawn of the Wequassett Resort.You never know what you’ll get when planning an outdoor ceremony. May can be warm and sunny or cool and rainy. Betsy and Dennis got the latter but were able to have their wedding outside anyway.

It was a misty day so the resort staff provided umbrellas for all of the guests and an oversize one to keep our quartet dry. We all moved to the enclosed patio for cocktail hour.

The upbeat bridal couple requested contemporary popular songs for the prelude, especially “A Thousand Years”. Processionals were “What a Wonderful World” for grandparents, groomsmen and groom’s parents, “Halo” for the bridesmaids, and “Canon in D” for Betsy’s walk down the aisle. The recessional was “You’re So Cool”. Our string quartet played a mix of old jazz standards and more popular songs during cocktail hour.
