We were very happy with Duo d’Amore. We got a string duo (violin and cello) for our wedding last weekend. We had had the idea of having the theme from Zelda (beloved video game from our childhood with an awesome theme song) as our Recessional tune, but I wasn't sure how easy it would be to find musicians who would go through the trouble of making a custom arrangement for us, and I was worried such a thing might up the cost. They did a great job; many of our guests recognized the tune and commented on it, we got a lot of love for that one haha! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Duo d'Amore, especially if you want some awesome/quirky custom arrangements” Nadine, bride

 

Described as “the perfect vineyard wedding” by Vineyard Bride we were glad to have provided the soundtrack to the amazing ceremony. Our violinist and cellist performed the following playlist in the beautiful gazebo at Kurtz Orchards Farm Estate. We also had the opportunity to work alongside two very talented people, Megan  the wedding planner from Weddings Tied With Lace, which is always a pleasure, and Elizabeth the photographer from Elizabeth in Love. Great things happen with a great team, and the real congratulations go to the amazing bride and groom!

Jessica + David’s wedding at Hernder Estates Winery, July 5, 2014, violin and cello duo, Niagara wedding ceremony musicians

This wedding ceremony was bright, summery and (aside from the gale force winds) absolutely gorgeous. We arrived quite early prior to the ceremony, as this was our first time at Hernder Estate Winery, located just outside of St Catharines. We found the wedding planner and had a quick chat, and began to setup our chairs, and as the ceremony venue was by the pond, we brought along our tent, and set that up as well. We had to improvise as even though the pegs were into the ground, the tent was in danger of blowing away (see the trees in the background by the very talented photographer Robyn Russell). We borrowed a few rocks from the pond to secure the tent and all was well. By the time we ere setup (about 10 minutes) the guests had not arrived yet, and it is always nice to be so prepared well in advance.

When the guests began to arrive we performed some upbeat pop songs, including hits by Elvis and the Beatles, to keep the mood light and fun. During this time, Sheldon Kofsky the officiant arrived and we received a cue from the planner that the bridesmaids’ processional was about to begin.

The mood shifted with the music selections to include the lovely open knit and fresh sounding music of Bach when the four bridesmaids and flower girl walked up the aisle, and took their places. At that point we paused for a few seconds, and began the famous Pachelbel’s Canon for the bride and her father’s walk. When they had reached the front of the aisle overlooking the pond and bridge at Hernder, we created a seamless and melodic ending, which was perfectly timed.

The next part of the ceremony where music happens is during the signing of the register, following the vows and kiss. For this section the mood was a little bit quieter, as we performed Bach’s Sleepers Awake, before the triumphant Mendelsohn’s Wedding March was heard as the couple were introduced as husband and wife for the first time.
