Sabrina and Sean’s wedding ceremony and reception, violin & cello duo, August 17, Royal Ambassador, Caledon ON

We have performed here in all seasons, but with the weather we’ve been having recently—not too hot, little wind, it is  a perfect opportunity for our string musicians to perform at an outdoor wedding in a beautiful lakeside setting in Caledon, just north of Toronto. This wedding was a great combination of natural beauty and classical music—always a great pairing. Here are the song selections that the bride and groom chose:

Bridal Party: Clarke: Trumpet Voluntary
Bride: Pachelbel Canon
Signing: Bach: Jesu Joy
Recessional: Mouret Rondeau
Reception: Classical and Pop music

Aside from the musical performance and the venue, Nancy at WEDECOR took care of the all the printing, invitations, programs, table numbers seating chart they did all the flower arrangements: bouquet, corsage, boutonniere centerpiece, large arrangements. For the ceremony/reception all chair covers, linens, aisle runner all set-up and taken away by our design team.

Wedding Venue: Royal Ambassador, Caledon
Wedding and Event Planner: Nancy Tremblay, WEDECOR 
Ceremony musicians: Duo d’Amore-string duos, trios and quartets

Rockcliffe Park Pavilion is an ideal spot for live music, especially a wedding ceremony! Our violin and cello duo performed two songs for the processional—one for the bridesmaids (Trumpet Tune) and a separate song for the bride to make her grand entrance (Pachelbel Canon). When the time came for the signing of the register our violinist and cellist performed the wedding classic Ave Maria (the Bach-Gounod version) and quickly switched to Mendelsohn’s wedding March as the newlyweds walked down to aisle.

Processional:

Mothers and Bridesmaids: Purcell Trumpet Tune

Bride: Canon in D

Signing: Bach-Gounod Ave Maria

Recessional: Mendelssohn Wedding March

Wedding Planner: Alyssa Bignelle

Wedding String Ensemble: Duo d’Amore-violin and cello duo, trio and string quartet, Ottawa

Annie and Alex’s wedding ceremony at the AGO, violin and cello duo, July 20 Toronto ON

This wedding ceremony had class, style and beauty written all over it! We always enjoy performing at Baillie’s court in the Art Gallery of Ontario. “Baillie Court is located on the third floor of the newly constructed south tower and is accessed by three guest elevators. With Douglas fir finished, sound proof and retractable air walls, Baillie Court can be divided into three separate and distinct event spaces. A custom designed ceiling grid houses a range of lighting, sound and other in house features.”

Annie and Alex chose a program and selection of traditional classical music, that really seemed to fit with the modern venue and the style to their ceremony, from the first notes of Pachelbel Canon to the last strains of the Mendelssohn wedding March as guests were clapping and celebrating the newly married couple.

Ceremony songs:
Bridesmaids: Pachelbel Canon
Bride: Wagner Wedding March (Here Comes the Bride)
Signing: Vivaldi: Winter from the Four Seasons
Recessional: Mendelssohn: Wedding March
Wedding Venue: AGO
Ceremony Music: Duo d’Amore-string duos, trios and quartets
