Wedding at Homestead Manor 7/30/16

Homestead Manor is fast becoming one of my favorite venues and Amy Parman is definitely my favorite event planner.  There are several places where ceremonies can take place and a large barn designed for receptions that can be open air or be curtained off in case of inclement weather.

So Homestead Manor was the site of the nuptials of Emily and Chris on July 30, 2016.  The ceremony took place in the barn with the ceremony area draped in long, white fabric.  For the prelude we played mostly contemporary music such as “Thinking Out Loud”, and “At Last”.  In a nod to the classics we brought mothers and men in to “Passacaile” by Handel, the bridesmaids to “Canon in D”.  Then Emily met her sweetheart at the altar to the not so classical “A Thousand Years”.  After a lovely ceremony the newlyweds returned back up the aisle to the theme from “Game of Thrones”.  This tune never fails to bring people running over to gush over how much they love the song.  One of the assistants even recorded it on her phone.

Congratulations to Emily and Chris and their families.  May they have a long and happy life together!

Wedding at Homestead Manor 5/7/16

If you haven’t been to Homestead Manor in Thompson’s Station it’s worth a special trip.  And while you’re there you might as well stop in the restaurant in the house for a bite to eat.  It’s a beautiful old home repurposed for a restaurant during the week and a wedding venue on weekends.

Homestead Manor’s West Lawn was the scene of the wedding of Cristen and Taylor, longtime friends, sweethearts and now husband and wife.  They wanted mostly contemporary music for their prelude and ceremony music with the exception of the “Wedding March” aka “Here Comes the Bride” for the bridal processional.  Otherwise it was John Legend’s “All of Me” for the mothers and grandmothers, “A Thousand Years” for the bridesmaids and when all was said and done, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” for the grand exit.

Cristen and Taylor put the coordination of their wedding in the excellent hands of Amy Parman, the resident planner for the Manor.  (I’m a poet and don’t know it….).  We love that we don’t have to worry about people being sent down the aisle to the wrong music when we work with Amy.

Congratulations to Cristen and Taylor and their families!
