One of the reasons that we love creating and performing wedding day music is when we meet clients like Mary Beth and Graham. This lovely couple connected with us via skype from Prince Edward Island, as they were getting married in Calgary at the beautiful Lake House. All we had to hear from Mary Beth was that she loved the sound of the cello, she loved , romantic reminiscent music and we instantly were able to choose the perfect songs for their amazing day . The bridesmaids dresses were a most sumptuous grey/green, and the wedding proceeded down the aisle to Ennio Moricone's Gabriel's Oboe, followed by Mary Beth and her father. Her song? Cinema Paradise, so perfectly elegant for this lovely bride. Occasional Notes so stress Emma Rose performed "Make You Feel My Love" during the ceremony -so perfectly.
After the ceremony we changed the mood to party! Cocktail hour music choices were everything from Ed Sheeran to Broadway. My favourite moment of this day, was watching ( from the corner of my eye) as Mary Beth's Grandpa tapped his toes to the tunes, and then sharing a quiet little dance with his Grandaughter, who is clearly the apple of his eye.
Our job as musicians is to create a soundtrack to a very special day, and make it unique to each couple, their families and friends. Music is the one key ingredient on a wedding day, that keeps everyone entertained, connecting and smiling.
We wish Mary Beth and Graham such happiness and love!
