While choosing wedding music selections, is fun and exciting, it can also be difficult, unless you are like this couple that knew exactly the mood that they wanted to create (lively, upbeat) and we worked together to make sure that the music had great flow. They also requested an arrangement of the opening Aria or the theme from J.S. Bach’s Goldberg variations. The ceremony opened with the bright and spirited Rejouissance by Handel (most often performed for the recessional) and it was a nice twist to have it performed by the violinist and cellist first thing. The Bach for the bride followed this, and they both exited to Coldplay’s Viva la Vida, for an even more upbeat recessional.
Riverbend Inn and Vineyards, was lovely as always and our musicians look forward to playing there again soon!
