The Chapel at North Naples United Methodist Church really had a romantic atmosphere on this third Saturday in July.
The Seaside Strings Violin and Cello Duo was here for the wedding of Raechel and Trevor. The ceremony began at 5pm and we began to play prelude music twenty minutes prior to the ceremony. I really enjoyed working with Raechel and she chose very interesting music for us to play. The Pastor had no problem with her selecting all popular music for this church wedding.
For the prelude, we played I’m Yours; You Are the Best Thing; All of Me; I Won’t Give Up; All I Want is You; A Thousand Years; Marry Me; and The Way You Look Tonight.
Pastor Van Duser took his place at the altar and we began to play ” When You Say Nothing at All”. This was a special song for the Groom and his Mother. The Groomsmen entered from the back and took the side aisle to their places up front. The three Grandmothers were seated followed by the 2 Mothers. The Groom was now in place also.
For the Entrance of 6 Bridesmaids, a Ring Bearer and Flower Girl, we played “Making Memories of Us”. For the Bride’s Entrance, Raechel chose “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. During the ceremony, the couple did the Tying of God’s Knot and we played “The Prayer” during this. For the Recessional we played “Lucky”and as the guests were departing, we played “Better Together”.
It was a wonderful ceremony and we were honored to be a part of it. Congratulations, Rachel and Trevor! It was a pleasure to meet you!
