Veronica, from Blue Ivy Events (firstname.lastname@example.org), contacted me to see if our string quartet was available to play for a wedding she was planning at the beautiful Lyman Estate in Waltham. We love performing there and were excited to be included in this lovely outdoor wedding.
There are several spots to locate the ceremony on the lawn behind the house. In my opinion, the best place is next to the trees, so we can have shade for our instruments. This also means no extra expense for a tent. When choosing a ceremony site, you might want to keep this in mind.
Julie and Frank chose “Fields Of Gold” for the bridal party entrance and “Marry Me” for Julie’s walk down the aisle. “Lucky”, by Jason Mraz, was the recessional. After the ceremony we moved to the covered porch to play for cocktail hour. We played a variety of Beatles songs, Cold Play, and other contemporary popular songs during cocktails. The bar was set up outside so everyone could hear the music.
