Playing at the Eastward Ho Country Club was a treat. They rarely have weddings there even though it’s a fantastic setting with an amazing view of Pleasant Bay in Chatham. I’d seen it many times when playing across the bay at the Wequassett Resort and always wondered if I’d ever go there! Well, thanks to Allison and Chris, I got my chance.
The ceremony was under a tent on the lawn, which was nice because it was a hot day. Cocktail hour took place on the patio but spilled out onto the lawn as well.
Allison and Chris chose “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desire” and “Canon in D” for the processionals. We played “All Things Bright and Beautiful” after the first reading. The recessional was the upbeat “La Rejouissance” from the Royal Fireworks. Cocktail hour was a mix of light classical and old jazz standards.
