Our wedding season is off to a busy start with absolutely beautiful celebrations that I just had to share!
If this is any indication of what our 2022 is going to be like, I'm all for it! Super sweet couples, kind and professional vendor teams, and wonderful memories - Sign me up!
The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway
We thought postponements would be left behind in 2020 and 2021, but our first wedding of the season needed a last-minute postponement!
This season is already off to a wild start! When a blizzard decided to change our bride and groom's plans, we (along with an incredible vendor team lead by Carisa of Pink Olive Events) acted fast to move the wedding to the following day, right out of the storm's path. This is a wedding we'll never forget especially because of the unique venue: The New England Carousel Museum.
Our string quartet performed all the couple's requests, including music from Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, classical wedding music (Wagner's Bridal March is an oldie but a goodie!), modern pop hits like Sia's Titanium, Foo Fighters, even an ABBA Medley with Dancing Queen.
We were so thrilled that Joe of JHumphries Photography captured us performing and shared them with us! Check out his beautiful work below.

To Make You Feel My Love
When Mariana and Geoff reached out last minute for their February wedding, we hit it off right away!
Mariana and Geoff wanted to honor the blending of their two families' cultures with their music and included a beautiful custom string trio arrangement of Testimonio by Luis Guerra. I loved how they took a classic church ceremony and brought in their favorite music to create a totally unique and elegant atmosphere. They included these favorites from our string trio library:
Linger - The Cranberries
Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright
Make You Feel My Love - Adele
I Wanna Hold Your Hand - The Beatles
A Million Dreams - The Greatest Showman
Turning Page - Sleeping at Last (from Twilight)

I was so happy that I squealed when I saw Cait Fletcher Photography (and maybe startled some of their guests!) , but I knew she would capture their wedding day so beautifully. Check out her incredible work:
