Tiffanie & Alex

Tonight we played for a lovely reception in honor of a gorgeous couple who are getting married tomorrow. What a great idea to have your party the night before the big day!

We played under a web of string lights, the kind that make you want to live your entire life outside at dusk. The bride and groom stood among a whimsical, yet romantic backdrop of large white paper lanterns. We played some of our favorite selections as three young girls danced their little hearts out, right in the middle of the square. They danced the way I used to dance in front of my parents' large bedroom mirror, carefree and exuberant, but they did it in front of the entire wedding party with no qualms. We then played a song called Three Little Maids and told them it was for them.

The bride and groom requested that we play Over The Rainbow, which we did sometime during the night. Then, as we were leaving, we heard another rendition of the beautiful song playing over the speakers while they danced together and with their parents.

Alex and Tiffanie, we wish you all the best!

Carmen & Jared

Today we played a wedding at the gorgeous venue of Snow Basin Resort. We rode the gondola high up on the mountain to Needles Lodge for the ceremony uniting Carmen and Jared. We had the privilege of accompanying Carmen's brother Tab, an opera student at Weber State, while he sang You Raise Me Up, a piece we learned especially for him.

Then we traveled back down to Earl's Lodge to play during the cocktail hour and reception. Despite a gentle breeze (which we battled with clothes pins holding down our music), it was the perfect day for an outdoor wedding in the canyons!

Lion House Luncheon

Today we played for a luncheon at the Lion House on Temple Square in SLC. The theme of the wedding was Disney Princesses. We played the music from Sleeping Beauty along with other popular love songs. The tables were adorned with princess figurines and the bride looked just like a princess!
After playing for the luncheon, I joined my husband, my toddler, and my 12-day old baby for lunch at the pantry in the basement of the Lion House. It was a beautiful day on Temple Square!

Rained Out at the Wight House

When she planned her wedding for June 10th, this bride probably thought she would have the typical fantastic weather of early summer in Utah. However, the weather man had different plans. He sent, not only rain, but sheets of it. And hail. And wind. Marci did not get to have her wedding on the roof of the Wight House in Bountiful; however, it turned out to be a perfectly lovely ceremony... inside.
