Deans' Duets provided violin music for Jackie and Kristin's wedding rehearsal on June 29th and for their wedding on June 30th. Their wedding was at the Belk Chapel at Queen's University near uptown Charlotte.
On the way to the rehearsal on Friday, I had to run to North Lake mall and forgot how hot it was, so my violin was driven around the mall in the stroller. :)
I had the pleasure of playing with pianist Tim Walters, who was a friend of the bride and groom. Sometimes we get worried when we are collaborating with a pianist who is not part of our group, but Tim was amazing and exceeded our expectations. We played Canon in D for the bride to walk down the aisle and This Will Be and Everlasting Love for the recessional.
At the end of the ceremony, the officiant said, "You may salute your wife" instead of "You may kiss the bride." Everyone roared with laughter. So cute. We had never heard that one before.
As always, Samie with Something Perfect was an amazing coordinator and cued us perfectly, along with the other million things she had to do.
Thanks to Kristin and Jackie for inviting us to play ceremony music for your wedding day.
We played our first ever Ohio wedding on the last Saturday in June! This year, some of our lead musicians moved to Athens, Ohio, to pursue a second master's degree in music, and it was the perfect opportunity for us to expand into the Ohio and West Virginia areas. Nick (cello) and Daniel (violin) played violin & cello duets for Jordan and Caitlyn's wedding. As you can see it was the perfect day for an outdoor wedding!
Loved this ceremony site right on the water!
Jordan contacted us a while back to set up surprise ceremony music for his bride! How sweet is that!
Nick and Daniel arrived early to hop on the ferry to the island and were picked up on a golf cart to go to the wedding site.
It was our first time ever riding a ferry to a wedding too!
Nick and Daniel drove up the night before the wedding through Columbus, Ohio, to be near the Put-In-Bay ferry and ready to go on wedding day!
We had the best time coordinating all of these details with the groom and surprising the bride with such special music for their wedding day!
Looking forward to more West Virginia and Ohio weddings with Nick and Daniel as a part of our team, leading duets, trios, and quartets!
Congrats, Caitlyn & Jordan!
