Wedding at East Ivy Mansion 9/12/15

While I was busy elsewhere on 9/12/15 seeing that another couple was suitably married across town, Susan Mullen was taking care of business for me at the gorgeous East Ivy Mansion at S. 5th Street and Fatherland, the scene of the marriage of Deidre to Patrick.  I did attend the rehearsal and decided that any officiant named Vito had to be ok.

Deidre and Patrick chose music from the Beatles for their processionals.  This came as no surprise as Patrick is a rock musician.  The trio played Beatles along with other soft rock tunes for prelude and then began seating parents to “Let It Be”, after which the bridesmaids entered to “All My Loving” which I had arranged especially for them.  Deidre entered to a particular part of “Here Comes the Sun”, saving the chorus of the same song for their recessional after all was said and done.

The trio continued with more Beatles and classic rock for the cocktail hour.  The coordinator for East Ivy, Jamie Lane, does a perfect job of making a wedding run smoothly.

Congratulations to Deidre, Patrick and their families and many wishes for a long and happy life together.

Wedding at Saddle Woods Farm on May 23, 2015

Saddle Woods Farm is a new, rustic venue between Franklin and Murfreesboro that was the scene of Brooke marrying her sweetheart, Adam, in an outdoor ceremony in a garden next to the big barn built for such festivities.

Susan Mullen took charge of a trio bringing groomsmen in to the Beatles’ “In My Life”, the bridesmaids to “Wonderful Tonight” while Brooke entered to “A Thousand Years”.  They recessed as husband and wife to “All You Need is Love”.  Afterwards the trio moved to the barn to play more classic rock selections along with Coldplay and Jason Mraz tunes.

These pictures aren’t of their actual wedding but I wanted you to see the venue…

Many wishes to Brooke and Adam for a long and happy life together!IMG_0454 IMG_0449
