Alicia & Jeremy's wedding in Johnson City, TN
Our wedding on Sept 21 was at First United Methodist Church in Johnson City, TN. Alicia picked a great program!
In Christ Alone
We played all violin and piano duets for this wedding's ceremony music. It was fun playing a wedding in Johnson City!
Skylar & Grant's wedding in Winston Salem, NC
Then the next weekend, I played violin solos at this 10am wedding in Winston Salem. This was my perch for the wedding. I love how peaceful it was.
Skylar had planned everything herself, and it went perfectly! I played "Don't Stop Believing," "Here There and Everywhere," and "Don't Stop Me Now" for the prelude music on solo violin!
Here Comes the Sun.... love this recessional
After the ceremony, all the guests walked down the hill for a lunch reception.
The violinist serenaded them down the hill and over to where the reception was waiting.
Jennifer & Dennis's wedding in Charlotte, NC
My Saturday evening wedding was at the Great Aunt Stella Center in Charlotte. What amazing acoustics and beautiful surroundings! I also played classical solo violin for this Charlotte wedding.
What a week! Our first event was on Thursday evening at the Levine Center Center in Charlotte. April played piano solos for a fundraising event. They have a beautiful baby grand piano, so it was a fun two hours playing such a great piano.
There were light hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and tours of the facility with classical piano music in the background.
Then on Saturday, Madilyn and I played a Celtic wedding at the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge in Charlotte. They used green & white for their colors, and we played Celtic fiddle music for the prelude!
Then we switched to piano & violin duets for the ceremony. The Celtic theme was a great idea.
On Sunday, we played this gorgeous wedding at Camp Yonahnoka at the Eseeola Lodge in Linville, NC.
Madilyn set everything up and hid our cases and gear from view.
We played classical violin music for the prelude, and the bride walked down the aisle to "Can't Help Falling in Love."
And we get to play another wedding next weekend!
Kallie & Chris were married at the gorgeous Westglow Resort & Spa in Blowing Rock, NC.
Rosining my bow!
Guests arrived to 30 minutes of classical violin solos. Jen at Westglow is such a great director, so everything flowed beautifully and was right on time.
I played Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring for the bridal party to enter and Trumpet Voluntary for the bride.
One more picture before heading home
My parents were in town and came to the wedding with me! They hung out in Blowing Rock while I played. Then Mom captured some of these great pictures before & after the wedding. We snapped a few more before driving home.
Congrats, Kallie & Chris!! Thanks for allowing me to be part of your wedding day
Bonnie & Josh's wedding at Crossnore Presbyterian in Linville, NC (violin solos & violin/piano duets)
Our first wedding of September and our first wedding at Crossnore Presbyterian in Newland, NC! We arrived at the church around 2:30 to set up for the ceremony.
Jessica & Kristi (Events by Elizabeth Ashley) had everything organized from beginning to end. They were calm, cool, and collected all day!
A storm came through while we were playing prelude music... Since the piano was electric, it stopped working! Madilyn just kept playing violin solos, and I joined back in when the piano turned on again :)
Pre-ceremony music (violin & piano):
Then we headed over to Camp Yonahnoka at Eseeola in Linville, NC to play classical violin duets for the cocktail hour.
I love the chandelier hanging in the tree!
And then..... one more hour of classical violin duets for dinner music
After we finished playing, we sat outside, enjoyed amazing food, and listened to the Atlanta Showstoppers kick off the reception. What a fun day!
April is a professional violinist and the music coordinator for Dean's Duets.
