It was hard to believe it was a July evening when we arrived at South Seas Plantation. Allie and Robert were getting married on the Sunset Cove and the weather was just spectacular. The Seaside String Trio was there to provide the ceremony music on this Monday evening under the auspices of Thank You for the Dance Entertainment. We met Amy Morgan at King’s Crown and she drove us over to the ceremony site which was on the beach adjacent to the golf course. What a lovely spot and private too. Sebrie Images Photography was on hand to photograph the event.
We began prelude music at 6:15 when the bus brought the guests over to the beach. Allie had requested popular songs and she was a big fan of Journey, the Beatles and Frank Sinatra. On our playlist were Can’t Help Falling in Love; The Way You Look Tonight; All You Need is Love; Don’t Stop Believin’; Here Comes the Sun, Come Fly With Me and Open Arms.
It was all traditional music for the ceremony. A Grandmother and 2 Mothers were seated to Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring; Dr Dan Lamey, Officiate, led the wedding party,which consisted of 3 Bridesmaids and Groomsmen and a Ring bearer and Flower Girl, to the Canon in D by Pachelbel. Our Bride was escorted by her Dad to the Bridal Chorus. During the ceremony,the couple had the Tying of the Knot and we played the Israel K version of Over the Rainbow. As the guests cheered on the newlyweds, we played the Wedding March for the recessional.
As the guests boarded the bus to take them to the reception, we finished with I’ll Follow the Sun. Darn, we did not have time to play another Journey song that I had arranged for them: Faithfully!
Allie looked absolutely radiant. We wish all the best for this wonderful couple!
