Sarah and Sam were married in this gorgeous ceremony at the Duke Mansion in Charlotte, NC.
The Duke Mansion in Charlotte is the ultimate destination for classic and sophisticated weddings. They only accept 25 weddings a year, so couples have to plan early!
We played “You Are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne for the recessional.
Here's a short clip of our rehearsal.....
Donna and Paul provided ceremony music as well as cocktail hour music at this Charlotte wedding.
We are always careful to put away bags and cases so that we offer a clean performance site for photos.
Sarah was such a beautiful bride!
We are privileged to play live wedding music in Charlotte at this gorgeous estate often.
Loved working with Mandi at Social 10 events!
Everything about Sarah and Adam's wedding was stunning. The mountain setting was epic!
The backdrop for weddings at Lonesome Valley are jaw dropping.
We played violin and guitar music for the ceremony and provided a microphone for the rabbi, so there was a bit more equipment than usual.
We are always careful to put our cases and bags somewhere out of sight when playing music for the wedding ceremony, so that the performance area looks clean, but when it's threatening rain, we make an exception and keep them nearby.
About halfway through the ceremony, it started raining, so the guests came under the awning with us musicians to wait until the rain stopped.
Asheville Event Company did a great job of making decisions and communicating with guests in the midst of the rain.
It's nice that we were able to move to this little covered porch when the rain started. Once it cleared, the guests went back to their seats to resume the ceremony.
Congrats to Sarah and Adam! Loved playing wedding music in Western North Carolina!
Saturday was the perfect day for a wedding! Beautiful weather in the high 70s, a gorgeous location. April and Meredith played violin and cello duets for Kiley and Tyler's wedding at Larkin's on the River in Greenville, SC.
Deans Duets is gaining a reputation for how early we arrive to our events. We don't like the stress of being late, so we arrive really early! This wedding is a perfect example of why we do that...There was no parking at the venue, and there were festivals going on downtown, so we had to find parking and then walk through downtown to get to the venue.
With all of that, we still arrived 45 minutes before we began playing, and had plenty of time for our instruments to transition from the heat outside to the air-conditioning inside, and to get in a nice warm up before we started.
After all that walking and playing, I treated myself to a lovely dinner outside before hitting the road back to Charlotte!
April is a violinist and music coordinator for Dean's Duets.
