Julia and John had a spectacular day for their wedding by the water. John is originally from Turkey so part of the ceremony was spoken in Turkish. About half the guests were from Turkey, too.
Julia and John chose the beautiful “Air on the G String” by Bach and “Canon in D” by Pachelbel for the processionals. There is a long stairway that the bridesmaids and bride descend, so we are able to play longer versions of each piece. Some venues have very short aisles which means shortened renditions of the music. Of course, our string trio can make anything work even if it’s only for a minute. The recessional was “Ode To Joy” by Beethoven. We played a mix of light classical, old jazz standards, tangos and popular tunes for cocktail hour.
No matter how many times we play at the Wequassett Resort, it never gets old. Kalson Pang and his terrific staff make our job easy.
