Sarah and Shane’s wedding in the Heritage room of the Fairmont Chateau Montebello, November 17, 2012, violin and cello duo, Montebello, QC

Chateau Montebello is beautiful at any time of the year, but late fall is always wonderful. Sarah and Shane had a lovely ceremony. Their song selections combined baroque elegance with romantic richness. Starting with the bridesmaids, our violinist and cellist performed Mouret’s Rondeau, which many people know as the theme to Masterpiece Theatre. For Sarah, the bride, the string duo performed Wagner’s Bridal Chorus (this is where the richness comes is, as it sounds lovely with the violin and cello) and finally for the recessional we ventured back into baroque territory with the exuberant second hornpipe from Handel’s Water Music.
