Our violin/cello duo had the pleasure of playing for Jessica and Michael’s wedding at the historic Hampshire House located above the famous “Cheers” bar on Boston’s Beacon Street. Thanks to Paula Marrero and Michele Giacomozzi for coordinating a beautiful event.
The ceremony took place in the 2nd floor Library. Cocktail hour was on the 3rd floor. Guests returned to the Library for dinner and dancing.
Prelude music consisted of various light classical selections. You should think about what “mood” you want to set, when choosing pre ceremony music. I recommend classical but anything goes these days, so feel free to choose whatever kind of music you like best.
Processionals were Largo from “Winter” of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi for the grandmother and mothers, “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” for the bridesmaids and Bridal Chorus for the bride’s entrance. Alla Hornpipe from The Water Music by Handel was the recessional. For the reception, Jessica and Michael chose a number of old jazz standards and popular songs from our extensive list.
