A full range of string ensembles: solo violin and cello players, string duos, string trios and string quartets.

 

Eden and Graeme’s wedding ceremony at The Ranche, violin and cello duo, September 7, 2013, Calgary AB

This wedding was perfect, in a very unique way—it rained throughout the ceremony! This might not be some people’s definition of a perfect wedding, but in this case it was. The bride’s family is Scottish, and as the photographer Shannon Yau so elegantly put it on her blog: “the fog mixed with the rain, the tartan, and the bag pipes – it couldn’t have been more perfect.” Our string musicians added an additional layer of elegance and mystique that the venue (The Ranche) and weather had supplied for the wedding.

“Thanks for being there doing an awesome job! Our guests and us were enjoying the music”

We work very hard to provide our clients with a wide range of interesting music to choose from, including classical, pop, fiddle tunes rock and everything in between, and it’s always nice when clients send us their selections for each part of the ceremony, such as the processional, signing, communion, offering, sand ceremony etc. But, its also nice when the clients leave the selections up to us, and that is exactly what happened with this ceremony at the Prince House, and it was excellent and a surprise for the couple.

“We want to say thank you so much for making our day perfect! Everyone loved the violinist and cello player. They were exactly what we were looking for. We couldn't have asked for two more polite and wonderful people to play for us. It was beautiful and they played every song that we requested. We did get a picture with them and I will send them to you when we return back from our honeymoon in Jamaica. Again it was an absolute pleasure to work with you. We will highly recommend you to everyone I know.” Marcia and Chad

Having performed at a number of Fairmont hotels across Canada, it was lovely to perform for a cocktail reception on the balcony of the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary. We received many comments about the great performance by our string ensemble. Throughout the process we had a lovely time dealing with the main planner Lesley Plumley at Magical Moments as well as the staff at the Hotel.
