Wedding at Scarritt, 3/19/16

On March 19 of 2016 Silver Strings brought their music to the wedding of Jessica to Luke in Wightman Chapel on the Scarritt campus.  This chapel is only our favorite chapel for the fabulous acoustics.  We were a quartet and with the addition of a trumpet, brought traditional classics for the prelude and processionals.

We brought mothers to their places with “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”, bridesmaids, ring bearers and flower girls (four of them, all cute as buttons) to the beautiful “Canon in D” and Jessica to her place next to Luke to “Trumpet Voluntary”.  Jessica and Luke had written their own vows and I have to say they were extraordinary in their eloquence and meaning.  It’s times like this that make us wedding musicians grateful to be able to do what we do and be a part of such important rites.

We sent the newlyweds back down the aisle to the joyful “Hornpipe”.  Silver Strings congratulates Jessica and Luke and their families and wishes them a long and happy life together.

Wedding in Clarksville, 3/12/16

On March 12 Susan, Toni and I climbed into Gary’s station wagon to make the trek to Belle Hollow in Clarksville.  Belle Hollow is a part of a warehouse that has been repurposed for various shops and this lovely wedding venue.

There we brought our music to the wedding of Cynthia to her sweetheart, Tracy.  Their story of how many times they were like two ships passing in the night, very close but unaware of the other was an awwww-inducing moment.  Their wedding cried out for tunes like classic rock’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” to Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” which we played for the processional.  The ceremony was short and sweet after which we sent them off as husband and wife to “I Feel Good”.  And indeed they and everyone in the audience did feel good.

It was such a pleasure to meet and work with Cynthia and Tracy.  We offer our best wishes for a long and happy life together….finally!!
