We always enjoy working with Amy Morgan of Thank You for the Dance Entertainment! On Sunday, October 11th, the Seaside String Trio provided wedding ceremony music and cocktail hour music for Vanessa’s wedding at the South Seas Plantation Resort. The event was held on King’s Crown Lawn. It was a beautiful afternoon. The only drawback was we were close to the pool area and the loud music there was distracting during the ceremony.
Vanessa knew exactly what music she wanted even before seeing our repertoire list. Starlight by Muse, a special request, was for the Entrance of her Wedding Party. A Thousand Years by Christina Perri was the music for her entrance and Viva la Vida by Coldplay was the Recessional.
After looking over our lists, Vanessa chose these songs for prelude: Unconditionally by Katy Perry; You’re Beautiful by James Blunt; Take My Breath Away from Top Gun; Happy by Pharrell Williams; The Prayer by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli; Paradise by Coldplay, She’s Always a Woman by Billy Joel and Just a Kiss Goodnight by Lady Antebellum.
We moved to the porch for the cocktail hour while guest mingled on the lawn.Vanessa chose a lot of our favorites for cocktail hour: Everything by Michael Buble; Stand By Me by Ben E. King; Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet; Just Like Heaven by The Cure; Radioactive by Imagine Dragons; Good Life by One Republic; I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith; Wake Me Up by Avicii; The Scientist by Coldplay; Music of the Night from Phantom; Someone Like You by Adele; All of Me by John Legend; and Sweet Child O’ Mine by Gun’s N Roses. We appreciated the Mother of the Bride coming up to tell us how much she enjoyed our music!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
