A drive up to the mountains is always refreshing on a 90 degree day in Charlotte, and this weekend was no exception! I always jump at the chance to play at a new venue, so I was glad to be booked for a wedding at The Broyhill Inn & Conference Center in Boone. Surrounded by mountains, it’s a perfect spot for such a romantic occasion!

The bride and groom wanted a more traditional and classic atmosphere with their wedding music, which fit in perfectly with the simple yet elegant decorations, dimly lit by stately chandeliers.  As a musician, I would also like to add that the ballroom had superb acoustics!

Prelude ~ Mostly classical music, but also ‘I Hope You Dance’ at the bride’s request

Seating of Parents and Grandparents~ Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach)

Processional ~ Cannon in D (Pachelbel)

Exchange of Vows~ It was a nice touch here to play soft music in the background, which included ‘Whatever It Is’ (Zac Brown Band)

Recessional ~ ‘Spring’ from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. I also played ‘Ode To Joy’ (Beethoven) here, as the guests were dismissed
