We had a super time playing for the wedding of Naomi and Bob. This was a destination wedding for an older couple who had been together over 20 years and were finally getting married. It was a small intimate wedding (about 25 guests) held at Sanibel Moorings on Sanibel Island. Naomi chose the Seaside Strings Quartet to provide the ceremony and cocktail reception music. Kari was our venue contact and also served as Officiant. The ceremony was set for 5pm.
When Naomi first contacted me , she told me she was a big fan of 70’s classic rock and he was a light rock/disco kind of guy. But, they were both big fans of Broadway music. She joked that she has seen the show Mamma Mia 15 times! Our repertoire list was able to please them both! They picked great selections for us and we had so much fun playing them. It turned out we didn’t have time to play everything on their list, unfortunately. We certainly appreciated the warm response we received from everyone. Naomi told me afterwards they were all singing the words!
Here was the prelude playlist: Medley from South Pacific; Medley from My Fair Lady; Don’t Cry For Me Argentina; Till There Was You; Money, Money; Tonight, Can You Feel the Love Tonight, Over the Rainbow.
Naomi walked out to I Dreamed a Dream. The ceremony concluded with I Do I Do, I Do, I Do
For cocktail reception: Bohemian Rhapsody, All of Me (John Legend); Moondance; Colour My World; God Only Knows; Stairway to Heaven; At Last; Classical Gas; Gabriel’s Oboe; Hey Jude; Smooth; Hallelujah; Somebody to Love; Whiter Shade of Pale; You’re the First, the Last, My Everything; When a Man Loves a Woman.
It was such a lovely day for them. What a wonderful venue too! Congratulations Naomi and Bob!
