I’ve always liked the outdoor area for wedding ceremonies at Lake View Pavilion in Foxborough. Nothing’s nicer on a summer evening than a ceremony in the gazebo with a view of the lake! When Angel and Matt chose a December date, they knew everything would take place inside. I wasn’t too sure how this would work out but the staff handled it beautifully.
The ballroom was decorated for the season and looked spectacular. There was plenty of room for our string quartet to spread out and my worries about the rugs and drapes soaking up sound turned out to be unfounded; the acoustics were fine.
Angel asked for selections from “The Water Music”, by Handel and “The Four Seasons”, by Vivaldi, during the prelude. She also liked “The Man I Love” and the Strauss waltz “Vienna Life”. We filled in the remaining prelude time with similar music.
The processionals were “Trumpet Voluntary” for the bridal party and “Canon in D” for Angel’s entrance. “Largo” from Winter, The Four Seasons was played just before vows. The recessional was “Rondeau” by Mouret.
Since it was close to Christmas, we played some popular seasonal songs as well as old jazz standards after the ceremony. It felt very festive.
