This picture does not do this wedding site justice. The wisteria was in full bloom, a beautiful pale purple, and petals were strewn all over the grass. It looked gorgeous and I have to compliment our Bride Lauren for choosing this spot at this exact time of year! The Seaside String Trio provided the wedding ceremony music for Lauren and Nick’s wedding held in the Caribbean Garden at the Naples Botanical Garden. The weather was beautiful too. It was windy but we were in a protected area so we did not have any problems.
I loved all the music the couple chose too! For prelude we played I See the Light from Tangled; Until the Last Moment by Yanni; What a Wonderful World; Viva la Vida; The Prayer; Beauty and the Beast; All I Want is You; Con te Partiro.
Amanda with Venuelux was the coordinator helping us on this first Saturday in March. When she and her assistant had everyone lined up, we began to play Love is a Many Splendored Thing for the Seating of the Family. This included Grandparents, Parents of the Groom and Mother of the Bride For the Entrance of the Wedding Party, the music was The End of August by Yanni. The Groom entered followed by the Groomsmen, Bridesmaids, Junior Bridesmaid, 2 Ring Bearers and 2 Flower Girls. Lauren entered, escorted by her father, to the music Come What May from Moulin Rouge. Lauren and I had worked out the timing for this and I think it worked perfectly. The couple performed a wine ceremony during the ceremony and we played Wonderful Tonight as they mixed the red and white wine and then each drank the rose wine, signifying their love. The Officiate, Jason, brother-in-law of the Bride, presented the newlyweds and the Wedding Party exited to Marry You by Bruno Mars.
It was such a memorable evening! Congratulations and best wishes to Lauren and Nick!
