The weather was perfect for this outdoor wedding at Konzelmann Estate Winery.  Tiffany and Michael hired our largest ensemble, the string quartet, which provides the maximum volume and richness of sound, and it really helped to create lasting memories for the bride and groom as well as the guests.  The ceremony music was all pop music, and we were excited to perform fantastic arrangements.

 “Thank you for making such a special contribution to our day!” Julia, bride

June 7th, was truly a beautiful day—the weather was wonderful and the perfect day for a wedding ceremony. The wedding was held at the escarpment site (complete with a lovely pond) at Cave Spring Vineyards, just a few kilometers from Inn on the Twenty in Jordan. This site is particularly wonderful, as unlike the other vineyard site, this one is elevated slightly, so guests have a wonderful view of the vines and lake Ontario that is spectacular. Another interesting thing about this site, and why we love it so much, is that it backs onto the escarpment, which acts almost like an amphitheater for the instruments, reflecting the beautiful sounds of the string instruments with surprising clarity.

Julia and I spoke about the music selections, and she had a great list already planned, which worked out very well. The only suggestion I offered is to have a second song chosen in case the signing went overtime. She chose Counting Crows: Accidentally in Love which was a nice combination with the recessional song of Here Comes the Sun. It was a great day and all the guests had a wonderful time. We were happy to be a part of it!

Ceremony music selections:

Processional - A Thousand Years (Christina Perri)

Signing - All You Need is Love (Beatles) and Accidentally in Love (counting Crows)

Recessional - Here Comes the Sun (Beatles)

As I was checking the mail this week, I noticed a small envelope along with our mail. Upon opening it, I saw that is was a lovely thank you card from Jason and Sandy, from our performance at the Pillar and Post. Here’s the message inside:

Dear Duo d’Amore,

We both wanted to thank you for setting a beautiful stage with your music for our special day. It turned out to be sunny, and our guests were amused by the songs they recognized. We hope you enjoyed it and couldn’t have done it without you! Cheers! Sandy and Jason Mills

The string duo performed the following selections during the wedding ceremony:

Bride processional Pachelbel Canon

Signing of the register: Beatles Here Comes the Sun and Coldplay: In My Place

Recessional: The Verve: Bittersweet Symphony

During the cocktail reception following the wedding ceremony we performed good deal of upbeat and fun music (Beatles, U2, Beach Boys, Train, Foster the People etc) and it really suited both their planning and the mood for the day.

Held outdoors in the Rose Garden, Jennifer and Stephane’s wedding was a wonderful intimate occasion, enhanced by the fresh, bright spring weather.

I really have to congratulate Jennifer and Kevin for making their wedding dreams come true, and they accomplished this with a good measure of style and grace. First off, they did something that not many couples do: they were married at 9:30am!

I think this is wonderful, and that more couples should get married first thing in the morning, as you get to spend the whole day and you have the whole day to be with your new spouse and celebrate with your family and friends. Another nice thing about the ceremony was that there were less than 20 guests there, all of them there (I’m sure) because they really mean something to the bride and groom.- also wonderful. I wanted to comment also on the music choices, because there was one song that worked especially well. If you have been reading or following this blog you might notice that many of the vents that we perform at are with ensembles or groupings of instruments that are with multiple players, such as the violin and cello duo, three players in the trio four for a quartet and so on. This particular wedding was performed with a solo cellist, which although not as common as the some of the other ensembles, it was an absolute perfect fit for this ceremony and the music the couple chose. Here are their selections:

Bridesmaids Entrance: Pachelbel Canon
Bride: Enya: Amarantine
Signing; Bach Air
Recessional: Bittersweet Symphony

Once again, we would like to congratulate Jennifer and Stephane, and wish them a lifetime of wedded bliss!
