This was a beautiful wedding ceremony, with an interesting story to go along with it!
We arrived early to setup, and actually had a bit of a hard time trying to find our exactly where to setup. The bride and groom were being married by the arbor down the terrace, and there was not a great spot, or shade for us to position ourselves where we could both see what was happening during the ceremony, or for the guests to hear us very well. We must have looked at 3 or 4 spots, and I was not too happy with any of them. That’s when we looked up, and though about the possibility of setting up on the terrace, above the ceremony. We tried it and had a perfect view of the ceremony. We also tested out the acoustic, and made sure to have the f holes of the violin and cello pointing towards the guests so that the sound would sound full and rich. The amazing part is because many of the guests entered from around the side of th building, no one knew that we were there until we started to play. Many guests were so surprised and delighted to see and hear us play. Truly a memorable wedding!
