Ashley+Stephen, In Action Photos

Happy October! We have finally entered the new engagement season!

If you are like us, your Facebook news feed is blowing up with ring photos and updates in relational statuses. This is such a fun time of year!

On another note, I am so excited to share some of the images from Ashley+Stephen's wedding! We loved working with Cheyenne and Geoff Schultz and seeing their stunning work. To see Cheyenne's full blog post on the wedding, visit here.

Megan+Jake, Morning Glory Farm

We had the joy of being a part of a Morning Glory Farm wedding on September 5th! The venue is simply beautiful and quietly nestled on a country farm. The weather was absolutely perfect for a wedding as well.

The videographer, Chad, from Shutter-Hutch {photobooths+videography} recorded us playing music at the wedding! Here is a live sample of us playing about 18 minutes of prelude AND processionals. This is a very realistic sample of our sound in person and what our favorite selections are. Enjoy!

Katie+Bryan, Brakefield at Riverwalk

"Where are all the real men?!" Woes such as these were common between Katie and I throughout the past few years as we were both teachers at the same music school. We would talk about our dreams and visions while encouraging each other to keep trusting God to provide. We shared stories from life, and I remember her talking about this guy - Bryan. But at that time, she ZERO interest in him [at least, that's what she said...]. It's funny how God can direct our lives. Today, Bryan is her husband.

When Katie asked me to play for her wedding, I was thrilled! Katie naturally knows so many musicians since she played violin for the Forest Hill Church band. I played the cello and filled in on some vocal songs with the band. Fun is definitely a good word to describe it!

Hanna+Aaron, Andrew Jackson State Park

I've been so excited to write about Hanna and Aaron's wedding! This post has more personal notes since Hanna has been a family friend, and we were quite involved with her wedding.

First off, Bethany was a bridesmaid for the first time!

Second, I did Hanna's hair and makeup.

The rest of us played music for the Ceremony, and Bethany and I sang with our friend, Angela.

All of Me - [Recessional]

Jon, my boyfriend, was the photographer as well! It was a blast to work together. When I wasn't getting Hanna ready or playing music, I helped second shoot. It was a busy, and HOT day! The weather was stormy right before the wedding began but miraculously cleared up in time.

So many times as a musician, we have the best views of the Bride and Groom's faces. We see the little interactions that no one else sees. We see the tears. We hear the little comments. We see them slightly shaking from nerves and excitement. I've always wished I had a camera with me to capture the photos no one else sees.

For the first time, this wish came true! After playing the processionals and singing, I was done with the music [since the recessional was only piano]. Jon left a camera in back for me, and I was able to capture some shots like the ones below. Hanna was thrilled to have photos from that angle, and it gave Jon the freedom to get photos from other angles.

Visit Jon's blog post of their wedding to see the full story of their day unfold!

Angela, it is always a joy to sing and play music with you! Blessings as you move to Africa next month to teach and to minister. We love you!

Congratulations to the new Mr.+Mrs. Berry!

Yelena+Bartek, Alexander Homestead

We are just now receiving most of the photos from our June weddings! We were a part of so many beautiful weddings with fantastic couples.

June started off with music at an Engagement Party at the Elizabeth Lawrence House at Wing Haven Garden. 

Live, tasteful, and elegant music at Engagement Parties is such a nice touch to make an event memorable and special.

We had two double header wedding weekends during the absolute hottest time of the year. Record highs - in HUMIDITY and HEAT! Thankfully, the weddings were so beautiful that it helped us and the guests stay cheerful during the entire Ceremony. :)


Everything was gorgeous. This Charlotte venue is on the corner of a busy intersection, but the trees surrounding the property create a secluded and intimate atmosphere. With Ukrainian and Polish backgrounds, it was so neat to see some fun cultural aspects to the Ceremony.

Knowing a couple of the bridesmaids at the wedding also made for such a fun day! The creative team was a joy to work with, and we couldn't have asked for better clients. Enjoy the photos below by their fantastic photographer, Anastasiia!

Jamie+Patrick - In Action Photos

July has finally arrived with just a little less heat and humidity than June! Bethany and I played a wedding on Saturday as a cello duet, and it was the first since October 12, 2014, that we were inside! Indoor weddings are a dream for musicians. Outdoor weddings tend to produce beautiful photos, but they're typically not comfortable for anyone else [though there are rare cases of perfect weather]. Our instruments always appreciate stable environments with controlled temperatures.

On another note, we received the images from Sposa Bella Photography from Jamie+Patrick's beautiful cottage wedding at Old Edwards Inn! Lindsey and Craig, we so enjoyed working with you!

[You can read the details about their beautiful garden wedding here]

Next up will be a May recap [with some of the most exciting news to share!] and music lists for our many June weddings. Stay tuned!
