Josh & Kelsey

Congratulations to Kelsey and Josh. This fun couple tied the knot surrounded by family, friends, and a beautiful sky. This setting for a wedding ceremony will take your breath away!

I loved this couple's choice of fun, unique ceremony music:
Bridal Party: Coldplay, Paradise
Bride Processional: John Legend, All of Me
Recessional: Pompeii, Bastille

Skylodge at Summit Powder Mountain is a cluster of glass yurts with a large deck that offers spectacular views. You can actually see Cache Valley, Antelope Island, and Pineview all while standing in one spot.

The ceremony ended with a well-timed, stunning sunset!

Garden Wedding

We had the pleasure of performing for a beautiful wedding ceremony in the Fragrance Garden at Red Butte Garden. There was an audible wow from the guests as the bride walked into view. She was stunning!


Congratulations to the newlyweds. Thanks for letting us provide music for your special day!

Lindsay & John

It was a hot July day, but so nice to be a part of Lindsay and John's wedding ceremony next to a refreshing pond, under the shade of several giant cottonwood trees. Glass chandaliers hung from their branches, and a giant empty picture frame served as the ceremony backdrop.

Ceremony selections:
Processional song - A Thousand Years
Bride's entrance -- Canon in D
Recessional song - Here comes the Sun

Above the Heat at Alta Lodge

Alta Lodge is nestled at the top of the mountains with a beautiful, green and blue mountain backdrop. This July day was downright balmy with thick clouds and a slight breeze. But the weather held out perfectly for the outdoor wedding ceremony on the deck.

For the ceremony, the happy couple requested:
Canon in D – Pachelbel,
Jesu, Joy of Mans Desiring - Bach
Here Comes the Sun – Beatles

When Tim saw his bride, his eyes got a little wet. Then, during the ceremony, Morgan laugh/cried as she looked at him and they happy cried together. Morgan and Tim lit their candles, and together lit the unity candle, with the help of their brothers as wind shields.

The wedding party went inside for cozy cocktails just as we started to feel the chilly temps. We accompanied cocktails and dinner in the dining room. Some selections were:

Can’t Help Falling In Love with You – Elvis Presley
Oh Happy Day - Hawkins
The Rose – McBroom
Bittersweet Symphony – Mick Jagger
When I’m 64 – Beatles
Viva La Vida – Coldpllay
As Time Goes By - Hupfeld
You Raise Me Up – Josh Groban
Hallelujah – Cohen
Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
Wouldn’t It Be Nice – Beach Boys
Sweet Home Alabama – Van Zant, King, Rossington
Paradise – Coldplay
Vocalise - Rachmaninoff
Surely the Presence of the Lord is in This Place – Wolfe

Dinner Party

Strings of Elegance had a unique opportunity to play for the Tanner Lectures Board Dinner, a gathering of presidents from several universities, including Stanford, Yale, Princeton, and Harvard. What an honor to play for such a prestigious group! The president of University of Utah expressed "we enjoyed your wide variety of music, from Beethoven to Beatles."

Chapel Wedding Ceremony

 This traditional ceremony was a perfect representation of a classic chapel wedding at the White Memorial Chapel in SLC
We played prelude music as guests were being seated, Canon in D for the wedding line, Bridal Chorus for the bridal procession, and Wedding March for the recessional following the ceremony. 
Congratulations Michelle & Jake!
