6/9/18 Wedding at Ruby Cora

On 6/9/18 a trio of us made an afternoon trip to Adams, TN to provide the music for the nuptials of Taylor and Cory at a site overlooking the freshly harvested fields of wheat in the countryside.  Marcia Winn, owner of Ruby Cora, has taken great care to make her event venue beautiful and welcoming.

I mostly worked with mom, Chauncy, on the music as kids these days have way too much on their plates and welcome the help of parents and friends.  The processionals were mostly classics with my choice of prelude music.  The scenery begged for things like “Butterfly Waltz” as there were many swallowtail butterflies lending their grace and beauty.  The minister showed his sense of humor at the end of the ceremony by telling Cory he could now make out with his bride after which we played them back down the aisle to “Cowboy Take Me Away”.

The reception took place in a specially designed building for events that was mostly windows with beautiful views out all sides.  The trio played Country tunes, old and new, while guests had cocktails and barbecue.  We even wore our Cowboy boots in honor of the music requested.

Silver Strings offers many wishes to Taylor and Cory for a long and happy life together.

5/26/18 Wedding at Long Hollow Gardens

Meanwhile at Long Hollow Gardens another wedding was taking place just after a cloudburst where Caroline wed her sweetheart, Andy in a traditional ceremony accompanied by not-so-traditional music played by a string trio of Craig Duncan, Julianna Waller and Gary Tussing.  Mothers were seated to “This Must Be the Place”, Andy then entered to “Raiders of the Lost Ark” followed by Star Wars “Throne Room” for the groomsmen.  Bridesmaids entered to “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” followed by bride, Caroline, to “You’re My Best Friend” (Queen).  During the ceremony their unity celebration was of planting a Bonsai tree to the “Feather Theme” from Forrest Gump.  The newlyweds were then sent back down the aisle to “You Make My Dreams Come True”.

The sun smiled on this happy occasion and the rain stayed away for the rest of the evening.  Callie of Lavender Events did a great job of coordinating the rehearsal and wedding.

And now congratulations are offered to the bride and groom and their families with wishes for a long and happy life together.

Wedding at The Schermerhorn 10/28/17

On October 28, 2017 Caroline married Paul in a beautiful ceremony in the lobby of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.  We were a quartet this time for the ceremony as well as the cocktail hour.  The music was more contemporary this time with songs such as “All of Me” (John Legend) and “Just the Way You Are” (Bruno Mars).  Caroline chose the “Canon in D” for her processional.  The ceremony was short and sweet after which we sent them back down the aisle to “Zip A Dee Doo Dah”.  My, oh my, what a wonderful day!

We reconvened above the west lobby to play for cocktails.  Caroline’s special request was “Crocodile Rock” which we performed after making sure she and Paul arrived to greet their guests.  We always have a big time playing classic rock and this day was no exception.

Congratulations to Caroline and Paul!  May they have many years of happiness together.
