Kitchener Waterloo wedding ceremony music, Ange + Steve’s wedding at the Hacienda Sarria, September 17, 2016

It was great working with Ange and Steve on their wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at the Hacienda Sarria in Kitchener, as well as their planner Ainsley from fresh look designs. This is a venue that we perform at quite a bit, and it was great to be back. For music, Ange and Steve had a more traditional ceremony, incorporating classical music for the string trio (2 violins and cello) featuring music by Bach in the Air from the third orchestral suite, Pachelbel Canon for the brides walk down the aisle and another piece by Bach for the signing of the register, his Wachet Auf or Sleepers Awake. Then for a fun twist, We are the Champions by Queen for the recessional. When it came time for the reception, we really kicked things up with modern pop music for the strings including the Game of Thrones Theme, some Counting Crows, Foo Fighters, Etta James, Black Eyed Peas—a whole bunch of really upbeat and interesting music, exactly what they wanted. It was a great night, and we can’t wait to be back!

Wow, what a beautiful day!  Early summer weddings can be so fantastic, and this was no exception. In speaking with Stephanie and Matt, the couple came up with a fantastic list of songs, and we tweaked the order and number to get things just right for the ceremony. The playlist speaks for itself, and sounded amazing performed by the violinist and cellist.
