Although we are definitely not new to the quartet business (we've been playing together for 13 years now!), we have a brand new website up and running:

Alena & Slovodan

Alena and Slovodan were married in the garden room at La Caille today. It was an intimate setting with just their closest friends surrounding them. We played traditional pieces for the ceremony, Canon in D, Bridal Chorus, and Mendelssohn's Wedding March. Alena loves Tchaikovsky so we played Waltz of the Flowers and Sleeping Beauty Waltz during the cocktail hour.

La Caille

The flowers, the swans, the bunnies, the peacocks, even the sky collaborated today to create a stunning wedding ceremony at La Caille. We played traditional pieces for the processional with a twist for the recessional:

Procession: Canon in D
Bride's Procession: Bridal Chorus
Recessional: All You Need is Love

So sweet!

Melissa & Chase

This evening we played for a ceremony on the patio at the Grand America followed by a fun cocktail hour in one of their exquisite ballrooms.
Melissa and Chase wanted very personalized music. Here are their selections:

Procession: "Adore You" by Miley Cyrus
Bride's walk down the aisle: "All of Me" by John Legend
Recessional: "Without You" by Usher

We enjoyed being a part of this cute couple's big day!

"Benanna" Wedding

Ben and Anna were married this evening on the deck at Millcreek Inn. They jokingly call themselves "Benanna" now.  This couple was all out adorable. Their ceremony was unlike any I've attended... and after playing for weddings for 12 years now that's saying a lot.
Prior to the ceremony the bride and groom shared their stories, first telling a little about their backgrounds, then their meeting and engagement. They wanted their families and friends to connect and understand the love that brought these two together... so sweet!

We played Bach's Arioso for the procession. For any brides who are undecided about what music to walk to go listen to this piece... it may just make up your mind for you.
