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.

Nicole and Jay’s wedding ceremony at Waterloo Park, solo violin, July 6, 2013, Waterloo ON

 “Everything was awesome, thanks again!” Nicole and Jay

Nicole and Jay requested Pachelbel’s Canon to be performed as the bride walked up the aisle to meet the groom. For everything else she left it up to us, and we chose a number of selections to fit alongside it. The park is a great location for a wedding, as it’s very centrally located, not to mention gorgeous!
