Ahhh, the Fragrance Garden at Red Butte Garden. Luscious. That's where Shea and Michael chose to hold their wedding ceremony. Their wedding officiate, Susan Seare was my favorite officiate to date. I had never before met the bride or groom before their wedding day, but Ms. Seare told such rich, comical, personal stories and anecdotes during the ceremony that I felt like we were all lifelong friends. She included a lovely mix of personal touches and life wisdom; I was entranced with this beautiful event.
Shea and Michael's musical selections:
Groom's processional: Rondeau by Jean-Joseph Mouret
Wedding party processional: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Johann S. Bach
Bride's processional: Te Deum by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (new music for us!)
Recessional: Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 by Johann S. Bach

Tonight we played at a gorgeous backyard wedding and reception at Wisteria Creek in Lehi. There were giant bunches of fragrant, pastel roses, a canopy of white lights, antique indoor decor brought outside, and old time lanterns around the expansive yard behind the mansion (which belongs to the bride; she organizes events).
We played Lullaby by Holfeldt for the wedding party processional, Pachelbel's Canon for the bride, and Bach's Brandenburg Concerto for the recessional while the bride high-fived her guests as she walked back down the aisle.
For the reception, we moved to the white gazebo, which offered great acoustics for us! We played fun dance music interspersed with classical pieces.
When our portion of the party was over, I got in my car to leave, and as I checked my mirrors, I saw a horse and carriage proceeding down the street toward me. So fitting of the romantic evening we had just enjoyed!
