Beautiful! posted 5/13/2010
I used the ensemble for my March 28 wedding! They did a beautiful job...used a strings trio! They did both the ceremony and the cocktail hour. It was a beautiful start to our day and Natalie was wonderful to work with. Many were very impressed, with their professionalism and talent. I highly recommend them!!

We are looking forward to performing for them on Sunday!

Doors to the main show and other vendors will open at 6 PM.
Admission is free.

On Friday Evening May 14th our String Trio will perform at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor for the Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Hour of Jennifer Marie and Anthony.
I have been in touch with Jennifer Marie since January of 2009. She has been a doll to work with and we are all truly looking forward to performing at their wedding!
The selections they have chosen for the ceremony are an eclectic and romantic combination of songs and classical music.
As the guests arrive we are to perform all classical selections.
For the Seating Of Family we will perform "Through the Eyes of Love"/"Theme from Ice Castles" by Marvin Hamlish
For the Wedding Attendants and Flower Girl/Ring Bearer we will perform "Canon in D" by Pachelbel
For Jennifer's Entrance we are performing the traditional music, "Bridal Chorus" by Wagner ("Here Comes the Bride")
During the Ceremony for the Unity Candlelighting we are performing the opening of
"Bittersweet Symphony" by the Verve, as specially requested by Anthony!
For their Wedding Recessional Music they have selected "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin.
This is a song I arranged about 8 years ago for a bride and groom for whom we performed up at West Point Military Academy. I have always found it to be a beautiful and very romantic song.
For their cocktail hour they have requested all Sinatra, Italian songs, light jazzy songs, and contemporary songs.
I have no doubt that Jennifer Marie will be an absolutely stunning bride and again we are really looking forward to 5/14!
