Sunday’s couple, Jenny and Joshua, also chose the Marco Beach Ocean Resort for their destination wedding on this October weekend . The Seaside String Trio was chosen to provide the wedding ceremony music and cocktail reception music. This was a Jewish wedding so it was planned a little later in the evening, at 5:45. We began playing prelude music at 5:30 as guests made their way onto the beach .
I hope these pictures show you it was another gorgeous day- what a beautiful sky! Our fellow vendors included Lyfe of the Party, Tonya Malay Photography and Dominick of Mobile Sound Entertainment. Rabbi Daniel Victor officiated the ceremony.
For prelude, we entertained the guests with I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing (Aerosmith); Right Here Waiting (Richard Marx); Marry You (Bruno Mars) and From This Moment On (Shania Twain) . Annie’s Song (John Denver) was chosen to be played as the wedding party walked down the boardwalk onto the beach. For the Bridal Entrance music, Jenny chose Pachelbel’s Canon in D to be played as her mother escorted her down the boardwalk onto the beach.
The breaking of the glass closed the ceremony and we played Rather Be (Clean Bandit) as the Recessional. I love this song that the couple requested- it is a great new addition to our repertoire list!
The cocktail reception was also held on the beach. After a slight change of position, we continued with the couple’s favorites: Bittersweet Symphony (The Verve); Clocks (Coldplay); Firework (Katy Perry); Good Life (OneRepublic); Just the Way You Are (Bruno Mars); Just Like Heaven (The Cure); Yellow (Coldplay); Pompeii (Bastille); Radioactive (Imagine Dragons); Wake Me Up (Avicii); Viva la Vida (Coldplay); Secrets ( OneRepublic); Livin’ on a Prayer ( Bon Jovi); and Stairway to Heaven ( Led Zeppelin). At sunset, Jenny had requested A Sky Full of Stars ( Coldplay) be played. It was another great special request and what a beautiful sunset!
Thanks to all for their warm response to our music! Congratulations, Jenny and Josh!
