Deer Valley | Cushing's Cabin

We learned a handful of new pieces for Kimberly's wedding to Mr. Anderson:
It Had To Be You
Can't Help Falling In Love
Do You Realize
Here Comes The Sun
Only Time

Our last prelude piece was The Prayer, which was a special surprise for the mother of the bride. We played Canon in D for the wedding line processional, which included the couple's cat as ring bearer. The bride and groom chose traditional pieces for their ceremony: Bridal Chorus for Kimberly's processional and Wedding March for the recessional.

We love playing outdoor weddings in Utah's mountains. In August, there is no better place to have a wedding than on the top of a mountain. The sunshine is strong, but the altitude and slight breeze keep temperatures under control. And chair lifts are fun!

August in Ogden

I loved the style of this wedding on a grassy field in Ogden. There were mason jars with baby's breath hanging from trees, and a classic car parked next to the couple's wedding pictures and guest book. The colors were so cheerful and pretty; all of the centerpieces were coordinated but not identical. The bride's dress had a low, lacy back, which coordinated beautifully with the bridesmaids' pink dresses. The bride and groom looked so very happy as they recited their vows.

We played traditional wedding pieces: Canon in D, Bridal Chorus, and Wedding March for the ceremony. After the recessional, we played a few classical pieces along with a few contemporary numbers by Coldplay and The Verve.

As we left the party, a mariachi band was coming in, along with a taco cart. So fun!
