Our past few weekends have been a nice break and not as busy as our Oct & Sept! The second weekend of Nov, I played two very sweet & private weddings at The Mast Farm Inn in Banner Elk, NC. Revival Photography captured both weddings and did an amazing job, as usual.
We had the entire weekend off on the following week! That hasn't happened in almost 3 months, so we were ready for a much-needed break.
Then we were ready to go again the next weekend with our students' violin recital in Hickory on Saturday at Lenoir Rhyne University.
And later that evening, I was a strolling violinist for a dinner reception in Greensboro, NC at the Marisol restaurant. Long day but lots of fun!
Adaumont Farm is such a beautiful venue!
Madilyn & I played classical violin duets for the ceremony. The sky was beautiful when we started, but halfway through the ceremony, it started raining. Coordinator Leigh Pearce handled it flawlessly. She appeared with over 30 umbrellas and quickly moved the ceremony inside.
The ceremony finished in the reception hall in perfect time for cocktail hour to begin.
Madilyn prepared violin for the cocktail hour while I made sure the piano was ready to go. We played fun pop favorites, which mimic the volume level of a string quartet when played on violin & piano. It was a fun group to play for!
Then everyone headed in for the reception while we packed up.
Congrats to Meaghan & Tim!!
