Martha and Colin had their wedding ceremony in the Rive Gauche room of the Chateau Cartier in Gatineau. The ceremony was simple and elegant, and the music selections fit in beautifully. Depending on the wedding ceremony, we sometimes perform as many as six of seven separate pieces of music, which is nice in it’s own way, but at a wedding like this, and especially with the romantic nature of the music selections, and the beautiful performance by our string ensemble on violin and cello, a smaller number of songs can make a bigger impact. We performed Bach Air on the G string for the bridal processional, and switched time periods from the baroque to the Romantic period for the famous Meditation rom the opera Thais by the French composer Jules Massenet. This piece is all about the violin, with its soaring any lyrical lines. For the recessional, the couple chose Bittersweet Symphony, which provides a great lift and upbeat quality, which carries over to the music at the cocktail reception. Congratulations!
