Happy June! What a whirlwind of a month May was! I look back on the past few weeks with many smiles and memories. A month in review post will be coming soon. Until then, I wanted to write about Jamie+Patrick's beautiful wedding at Piermont Cottage at Old Edwards Inn!
Jamie contacted me in early December about their small destination wedding. With 16 people in attendance, we definitely considered it a privilege to be a part of this very intimate wedding. In one of her emails, I was thrilled to read this:
Jamie was so easy-going, kind, and joyful. We all so enjoyed meeting her and Patrick at the wedding. Which, by the way, was beautiful and so much fun.
We seamlessly played through our favorite selection of songs for prelude. The Officiant sat down in one of the ceremony chairs while we were playing and just sang and hummed along. It is so special when others enjoy the music in that way! While we were playing prelude, Jamie did a first look with her dad on the lawn. It was so exciting and special to watch all of that while playing music.
That's another reason why our group is special:
We play by ear. That means that we are playing from memory and from what we hear. We're not reading sheet music. This gives us so much musical freedom, the ability to enjoy the music, and the joy to see the events of the day unfold.
IN ADDITION TO WHAT WE PLAYED BY EAR, HERE IS THE COMPLETE LIST OF CEREMONY SELECTIONS:
The Cello Song [Family and Bridal Party]
Canon in D [Bride]
Best Day of My Life - [Recessional]
These selections can be found on our Music Samples page --->
Craig and Lindsey from Sposa Bella Photography were so great to work with. We will share their photos soon! I am so excited to see what they captured from the wedding - every detail was beautiful.
After the wedding, we went to a local shop and ordered burgers! Bethany was the only one who ordered a salad - it looked amazing. We laughed and enjoyed an evening all together in the beautiful Highlands country.
