Josh & Emily at La Caille



We played Josh and Emily's wedding at La Caille in Sandy, Utah under billowing gray clouds. 

We played Pachelbel's Canon in D for the wedding party and Marry Me by Train for the bride's entrance. This piece was new for us. Emily arrived at the front of her procession just as the chorus rang out. It was perfect. As the officiant announced that Josh could kiss his bride, the crowd cheered, and so did the peacocks!

The violent rainstorm did not begin until they walked down the aisle together as husband and wife. For their recessional, we played All You Need is Love. We were stranded for a little while under our umbrella, but we didn't mind. La Caille is a beautiful place in which to be stranded by pouring rain.

Brogan & Lyndi

This backyard wedding in West Point was amazing. These people know how to party! They really transformed the yard into a beautiful space. A huge white tent covered most of the yard and kept everyone shaded. The ambiance, the sweet words that were spoken during the ceremony, the food, and the entertainment ;) were perfect for a summer wedding.
The Bride and Groom requested a few special pieces in addition to our regular repertoire. We played:
Queen's  My Best Friend
Bach's  Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major
Landgrave's  Because I Have Been Given Much
Handel's  Hallelujah Chorus 
And now for your viewing pleasure ... a cheesy selfie of Michelle and Cathy.

New Website

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: stringsofelegance.com

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!
