Deborah and Jared, our couple from Connecticut, chose the Seaside Strings Violin and Viola Duo to provide the music for their destination wedding and cocktail hour at the Hyatt House in Naples, FL. It was a small wedding held on the back dock and had a beautiful water view. It was a hot day but there was very little chance of rain. We were happy to find some shade!
We began prelude music at 3:45 and the ceremony began at 4pm. We played a mix of classical and pops music for the prelude: Rigaudon by Campra, At Last by Etta James; Telemann Vivace; Can You Feel the Love Tonight; Handel Allegro.
The ceremony began with the men entering. The Officiate was the Brother of the Groom. We played Handel Air as the Groom, Groomsmen and 2 Bridesmaids entered. Deborah chose the Elvis song, Can’t Help Falling in Love, as her entrance music. The ceremony ended with the introduction of the newlyweds and we played All You Need is Love as the Recessional.
We moved just down the dock for the cocktail hour. It was all pops music on our playlist. The couple made a few requests and then let me choose the rest: All I Ask of You; Cheek to Cheek; Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars; Michelle; It had to Be You; Moon River; Scarborough Fair; So This s Love; Think of Me; Unchained Melody; When I’m 64; All of Me by John Legend; Besame Mucho; Stand By Me; Somewhere in Time; Here Comes the Sun; Kiss the Girl; The Very Thought of You; What a Wonderful World; Wonderful Tonight; The Prayer; Have I Told You Lately; Perfect by Ed Sheeran.
I am so glad we got to meet the couple before they left for their dinner. Congratulations and best wishes, Deborah and Jared!
