Jennifer and Stephen’s wedding ceremony at the Waterfront Hotel in Downtown Burlington, May 17, 2014, violin and cello duo, Burlington ON

 

We initially spoke with Jennifer as sometimes happens, as they had booked a duo from another company that had to cancel for some reason or another, and we were happy to fill in and perform for her wedding ceremony in downtown Burlington at the Waterfront Hotel. As we subbed in at the last minute, the couple already had their wedding ceremony songs picked out (classical) for the violin and cello duo. They also hired our string ensemble to perform at the cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony, and their only request was to keep the music laid back and fun, and our violinist and cellist performed a mixture of music including several fun pop arrangements.

 

 

Processional -  Pachelbel  Canon in D

 

Signing - Bach  Jesu, Joy of Man's Desire

 “The musicians at the ceremony were fantastic yesterday. We received so many compliments! Thank you for making the day extra special.” Danielle, bride.

This ceremony combined classical elegance with modern sensibilities, to create a new hybrid that guests loved! After the guests were seated, the first music that stared the wedding off was Jesu Joy of Man’s desiring by Bach, which we performed as the mothers were escorted and seated. We then performed the romantic and rich Ave Maria, which itself is a hybrid version by both JS Bach and the French composer Charles Gounod who added the top part (played first by the cello) centuries after Bach composed his part. The classical and exceptional Pachelbel canon was played for the bride, and as I have said before—there is a reason why this is performed at so many weddings—it works so well, and guarantees a smooth and beautiful ending as the bride reaches the front of the aisle at the Church. The signing switched gears to Etta James’ At Last, with the ceremony ending to the upbeat Bittersweet Symphony.

Parents coming down the aisle: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (Bach)

Bridesmaids processional: Gounod Ave Maria (Bach)

Bride's processional: Pachelbel's Canon in D 

Registry signing: At Last (Etta James)

Recessional: Bittersweet Symphony

“Thanks for being there doing an awesome job! Our guests and us were enjoying the music”

We work very hard to provide our clients with a wide range of interesting music to choose from, including classical, pop, fiddle tunes rock and everything in between, and it’s always nice when clients send us their selections for each part of the ceremony, such as the processional, signing, communion, offering, sand ceremony etc. But, its also nice when the clients leave the selections up to us, and that is exactly what happened with this ceremony at the Prince House, and it was excellent and a surprise for the couple.

A wonderfully harmonious chord was heard as the bride took the final steps up to the front of the aisle to greet her soon to be husband, as Duo d’Amore’s musicians finished playing Pachelbel’s Canon. The violinist and cellist picked up their instruments again to serenade the guests and during the signing of the register with Vivaldi’s Winter from the Four Seasons. Shortly after the officiant was proud t announce the bride and groom and introduce them for the first time as husband and wife. Amid clapping and cheering from guests we performed an equally exciting rendition of La Rejouissance from the Royal Fireworks by Handel.
