We had so much fun playing for Sharon and Chris. Sharon is the sister of my friend, event planner Edna Dratch-Parker, who was matron of honor. It was fun to see Edna IN a wedding instead of assuming her usual role coordinating all the details. Rabbi Jill Perlman from Lexington’s Temple Isaiah officiated.
Tupper Manor has a lovely lawn area, complete with a fountain, for outdoor ceremonies.
Luckily, it was a nice day so the wedding could be held outside. Even if it rains, the manor has a beautiful room in which ceremonies can be held.
Our quartet included flute, violin, viola and cello. The processionals were “Canon in D” for the bridal party and “A Thousand Years” for the bride’s entrance. The recessional was the first movement from “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”. Mother of the bride, Gladys, played an important part in music selections. It was a pleasure working with her.
We played a mix of tangos, jazz standards and contemporary popular songs during cocktail hour.
