10/4/14 Wedding at the Schermerhorn

We started off October with a wedding in the courtyard of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.  Jocelyn Sprouse and Gary Tussing made up the rest of the trio as we played traditional and contemporary music for the wedding of Jessi and Jeremy.  Jessi and Jeremy opted to keep the music simple, seating the entire wedding party of mothers maids and groomsmen to the Feather Theme from Forrest Gump.  The light and airy music fit the sunny, slightly breezy afternoon perfectly.  Jessi made her entrance to Con Te Partiro, a beautiful, majestic Italian song made famous by Andrea Bocelli.

As guests were seated they found little silver bells on their chairs which they were able to use during the ceremony to express their joy as Jessi and Jeremy made their way back down the aisle while we played All You Need Is Love.  But before that happened, instead of a unity ceremony the mothers came forward to ring chimes to symbolize the union of the families.

Bruce Pittman did a great job of coordinating this wedding.  It makes the musicians’ job so much easier to have someone coordinating who knows what he’s doing.

Congratulations are in order to Jessi and Jeremy and their families!  And a wish for many happy years together.
