St. Regis, Deer Valley Reception

Strings of Elegance played for a beautiful reception on the Garden Terrace at the St. Regis in Deer Valley. We love this location as there is something so nice about playing beautiful music in the mountains.
We played a wide variety of classical, romantic, and popular pieces that fit the mood of this elegant reception.

The ride up the mountain on the funicular is, well. . . fun.

When we walked into the Scholarship room on the 4th floor of Rice-Eccles Stadium, we were stunned. The black and white decor was so classy with an accent of fresh, summery green. We played a selection of classical and romantic music while guests enjoyed a lovely meal and a spectacular view. The bride and groom visited with their friends and family as we serenaded them. Just a few minutes before we finished, the grandmother of the bride finally asked her to sit down and eat something. 

A DJ took over as we left so the wedding party could step out onto the dance floor. The sunset that night was breathtaking. With their expansive view to the west, I'm sure the fiery show did not go unnoticed by the happy couple.

I returned home with my hair smelling of campfire, which is a glorious thing. Is there anything better than the crisp evening air of the mountains? This wedding turned out to be one of our very favorite gigs. 

The bride and her two adorable flower girls walked down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon in D. She wore a beautiful lace gown and greeted her handsome groom at the alter. They were married before an intimate group of family and friends, then they took their first steps as husband and wife as we played Bach's Brandenburg Concerto. 

After taking photos, the group sat down to a delicious dinner while we continued playing joyful music. I know it was delicious because the bride and groom invited us to join them for their celebratory meal. We took a short break to enjoy our vittles, then resumed with our repertoire. At this point, most of the guests were inside the Inn for the cutting of the cake, so we serenaded three little dancing girls with Sleeping Beauty Waltz, Three Little Maids From School, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, and Anne's Theme from Anne of Green Gables. We love our job!
