I arrived at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, NC, on a Sunday afternoon to play violin solos for Tiffany and Fred's wedding. The Gardens is such a beautiful place for a wedding, especially since it is so different with all the greenery it offers.
We were all a little concerned about the wedding being outdoor, since the rain didn't seem to be lifting. There have been many weddings where the start time was postponed due to the weather! We were hoping for the sake of the wedding day, this one wouldn't have to be held off!
We waited inside, looking at the beautiful reception decor, and hoped for a break in the weather.
Amazingly, the rain cleared, and the blue sky emerged just in time for the ceremony to begin. We were so happy that the bride and groom were able to have the outdoor ceremony they wanted. Thanks, Tiffany and Fred, for asking us to play violin music for your wedding. The White Garden at Daniel Stowe is stunning, and we're grateful every time we get to play at this venue.
