On the fourth weekend in October, the Seaside String Quartet traveled to the Bonita Bay Club for the wedding of Kerri and Scott. We provided the wedding ceremony and cocktail reception entertainment. The ceremony was held at the outside pergola. Everything look gorgeous!
We shared the day with these vendors: Kehrin Hassan, of Jet Set Wed, Wedding Planner; Libby’s Flowers; IheART films; Binary Flips Photo; Niche Event Rentals for the ceremony chairs; Kakes by Karen; Salon Tease; Darcy at the Country Club; and Michael DeArruda, Officiant.
We arrived at 4:30 to set up and began playing prelude music at 5pm. The couple chose mostly classical music for us to play: Ave Maria, Schubert; Meditation, Massenet; Con te Partiro, Bocelli; Invention in F, Bach; Allegro, Handel; Rondeau, Mouret; Brandenburg Concerto #3, Bach.
