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!
