Josh & Emily at La Caille

We played Josh and Emily's wedding at La Caille in Sandy, Utah under billowing gray clouds. 

We played Pachelbel's Canon in D for the wedding party and Marry Me by Train for the bride's entrance. This piece was new for us. Emily arrived at the front of her procession just as the chorus rang out. It was perfect. As the officiant announced that Josh could kiss his bride, the crowd cheered, and so did the peacocks!

The violent rainstorm did not begin until they walked down the aisle together as husband and wife. For their recessional, we played All You Need is Love. We were stranded for a little while under our umbrella, but we didn't mind. La Caille is a beautiful place in which to be stranded by pouring rain.

Brogan & Lyndi

This backyard wedding in West Point was amazing. These people know how to party! They really transformed the yard into a beautiful space. A huge white tent covered most of the yard and kept everyone shaded. The ambiance, the sweet words that were spoken during the ceremony, the food, and the entertainment ;) were perfect for a summer wedding.
The Bride and Groom requested a few special pieces in addition to our regular repertoire. We played:
Queen's  My Best Friend
Bach's  Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major
Landgrave's  Because I Have Been Given Much
Handel's  Hallelujah Chorus 
And now for your viewing pleasure ... a cheesy selfie of Michelle and Cathy.
