Another gorgeous wedding in downtown St. Auggie. Here I am at the lovely Lightner Courtyard 🙂

For this wedding I played both the ceremony, and a few hours during dinner in the Alcazar Cafe (Fun fact: the cafe used to be an indoor pool in the 1890’s)

Here’s what I played:

  • Guest Seating ~ Mix of Classics and Modern
  • Groom’s Entrance ~ Bohemian Rhapsody (special request by the groom)
  • Bridal Party ~ Butterfly Waltz
  • Bride ~ Canon in D
  • Recessional ~ Ode to Joy

This wedding dinner was so pretty, that people passing by kept stopping to take pictures! I always look forward to playing at The Cloister, and this was a lovely setting tucked away by Turtle Pond. Congratulations to this couple, who though they had to rearrange their original plans due to COVID, ended up with a perfect wedding celebration with people they love.

Over the 2 hour dinner, I played a little of everything 🙂 Classic love songs like Can’t Help Falling In Love (Elvis), Fly Me To The Moon, and What A Wonderful World….and some newer titles Perfect (Ed Sheeran), You Are The Reason (Calum Scott), and A Thousand Years (Christina Perri).

To start off the Christmas music season, I was invited to play for a very sweet and special event at First United Methodist in downtown St. Augustine. The church’s children’s ministry had put together an Advent Prayer Walk through the sanctuary, with decorated stations to represent each part of the Christmas story.

The church has a beautiful sanctuary (and great acoustics!), so it was a delight to spend a few hours playing all the traditional carols. Happy December!

A beautiful Christmas wedding at St. Mark’s! I always love to play in historic places, and this church was built in the 1850’s. Bonus history lesson for you….one of its founding members was the first governor of Florida, and it was occupied by Union soldiers during the civil war.

For my part in the ceremony, I played during guest seating and for the bridal party entrance. The rest of the music was done on the church’s stately pipe organ.

Prelude ~ Arioso (Bach), Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach), Butterfly Waltz (Brian Crain)

Bridal Party Entrance ~ Canon in D (Pachelbel)
