Spring is one of my favorite seasons, May in particular. Even nicer than all the flowers, the green grass, the birds singing, is a spring wedding ceremony, in a church on a warm day. There is just so much promise and excitement in a spring ceremony, and we are always happy to perform. Kayla and Andrew chose quite traditional music, which we always like as it just fits so perfectly. I particularly enjoy the combination of Bach Air with Pachelbel Canon, as the Bach Air has such a smoothness to the sound, which Pachelbel Canon is much more contrasting, and almost bursts forth with energy. The signing is paced slightly slower, as this gives the guests a chance to think about the couples marriage (and snap a few photos in some cases) while the bride and groom sign the marriage documents. Bach’s Jesu Joy is perfect for this as well. Lastly, as the couple is introduced for the first time, what is more appropriate than the Mendelssohn wedding March in a church, in May?

Held outdoors in the Rose Garden, Jennifer and Stephane’s wedding was a wonderful intimate occasion, enhanced by the fresh, bright spring weather.

I really have to congratulate Jennifer and Kevin for making their wedding dreams come true, and they accomplished this with a good measure of style and grace. First off, they did something that not many couples do: they were married at 9:30am!

I think this is wonderful, and that more couples should get married first thing in the morning, as you get to spend the whole day and you have the whole day to be with your new spouse and celebrate with your family and friends. Another nice thing about the ceremony was that there were less than 20 guests there, all of them there (I’m sure) because they really mean something to the bride and groom.- also wonderful. I wanted to comment also on the music choices, because there was one song that worked especially well. If you have been reading or following this blog you might notice that many of the vents that we perform at are with ensembles or groupings of instruments that are with multiple players, such as the violin and cello duo, three players in the trio four for a quartet and so on. This particular wedding was performed with a solo cellist, which although not as common as the some of the other ensembles, it was an absolute perfect fit for this ceremony and the music the couple chose. Here are their selections:

Bridesmaids Entrance: Pachelbel Canon
Bride: Enya: Amarantine
Signing; Bach Air
Recessional: Bittersweet Symphony

Once again, we would like to congratulate Jennifer and Stephane, and wish them a lifetime of wedded bliss!

Wedding String Trio Burlington ON

There is no question that the city of Burlington has some beautiful venues, but we and our clients always fall hard for Spencer’s. The venue’s angled glass room is very modern, while the service and the attention to detail from the staff has been honed for years, so it’s no secret that we love to perform here. The clients requested a mixture of classical and pop music during the wedding ceremony, with classical coming to the forefront. The bridesmaid’s processional was Bach’s Sheep May Safely Graze, and this piece is a beautiful way to ease into the ceremony. As the brie walked down the aisle, the music shifted slightly to a Bach’s Air. This song has a wonderful octave leaps in the bass, which helps to anchor the sound and give the song a great footing to support the soaring and smooth upper line played by the violin. Of course, all of this is accentuated and highlighted by the beautiful acoustic in the room. Still sticking with Bach, the next time the string trio performed in the ceremony was when the papers were being signed. Bach’s Jesu Joy is a natural fit in keeping with the ‘Bach” theme. As the couple exited just after the officiant announced their marriage, we performed the upbeat and exciting (also very popular) Viva la Vida by Coldplay.
