We were very happy with the performance. I loved having it a part of our big day. Thank you so much. Heather, bride

We had a great time discussing the music selections with Heather for her wedding, and were able to assist her and Philip to create a wonderful soundtrack to their ceremony. The wedding was held at the beautiful Paletta Mansion overlooking Lake Ontario. The music for the ceremony was predominantly made up of classical music selections, except for the signing which was a wonderful departure into a duo of modern songs by Christina Perri and the Beatles. The music was heightened by the wooden floors and the acoustics of the room, bringing a warmth and depth to the sound of the violin and cello.

Our string duo, string trio and quartet has performed at Paletta in tn the spring summer, fall and winter, but there is something special about performing outside on a day like today, where it’s not too windy, hot or sunny, in short—perfect weather for a wedding ceremony. We arrived very early to the venue, and were able to have a word with the wonderful wedding planner Anne from White Orchid weddings. We have worked together at a number of weddings in the past, and it is always nice to see her.

We performed quite a few songs prior to the start of the ceremony, and when the ceremony stated, it was with a little flower girl who came out of the door an down the aisle, which was cute and a nice and unique way for things to get going. For the processional of the attendants and the bride we performed a beautiful rendition of To Love you More, made famous by taro Hakase and Celine Dion. The signing was equally beautiful, and we performed A Thousand Years by Christina Perry. We were lucky to be able to play the song twice through, as on the second time playing the cellist switched from pizzicato (plucked) to arco (bowed) proving a nice contrast and a richer sound just as everyone came back to the centre after the signing. When the bride and groom were pronounced husband and wife, we performed Viva la Vida. It was absolutely stunning!

Victoria and Gary’s wedding ceremony at Paletta Mansion, violin and cello duo, July 6 2013, Burlington ON

We always enjoy performing at Paletta, especially for outdoor weddings, as the back patio has an incredible view of lake Ontario, the guest are well taken care of, as they sit under the porch on several levels. This ceremony was very well organized, and everything just seemed to fit together in such a nice way. We performed Pachelbel Canon for the processional, and the incredibly beautiful Meditation from Thais for the signing. This song takes advantage of th violin and cello, as it combines some lovely writing in the mid to upper register of the violin, so that the sound seems to float above everyone. The cello part flows well, and grounds the ensemble with beautiful passages in the low to mid range. For the recessional, we performed the sprightly Handel Hornpipe II from the Royal Fireworks music.
