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.

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.

Barn at Gibbet Hill May Wedding

Sarah and Brendan were married on the lawn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA. We enjoy playing there, especially when the cows are out on the opposite hillside. Sometimes they serenade us during the ceremony!

Emmy Whitney of Whitney Events was a big help to our string quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour on the deck.

The bride and groom wanted a mix of contemporary popular songs and several traditional classical pieces during the prelude (Yellow, Marry Me, God Only Knows, You’re My Best Friend, Here Comes the Sun, All You Need Is Love, Marry You, All of Me, Vangelis Hymne, Bach’s Arioso, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, Air and Beethoven’s Ode to Joy)

The processionals were “Can You Feel the Love”, “A Thousand Years” and “Canon in D”. “I’m Yours” was the recessional. Cocktail hour included more songs from Broadway musicals and contemporary popular selections

You won’t find a better view than that from the Boston College Club, located on the 36th floor of 100 Federal Street in Boston. And it was the perfect location for Cris and Roland’s spring wedding.

Our string trio played Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” as the maid of honor and then the bride walked down the aisle at this intimate affair. Schubert’s “Ave Maria” was their choice for a musical interlude between the readings and the vows. “Ode to Joy” was the recessional.

Cris and Roland are big Beatles fans so we played mostly Beatles tunes during cocktail hour. We loved playing them, too!

You can’t top the beauty of the Wychmere Beach Club in Harwich Port, MA. Most weddings are held on the lawn overlooking the harbor and beach.

Alexis & John

Alexis and John were lucky to get a pretty day even though it was cold outside. They chose all-classical music for the prelude.

The bridal party walked down the aisle to “Trumpet Voluntary” while Alexis and her father entered to “Bridal Chorus” (Here Comes The Bride). We played Allegro from “Spring”, the Four Seasons as the recessional.

Everyone moved inside for cocktail hour. The bride and groom asked for some old jazz standards such as “At Last” and “The Way You Look Tonight” as well as several contemporary popular songs including “A Thousand Years”, “Bless the Broken Road” and “Viva La Vida”.

Good luck with your wedding plans.
