After last night's weather, I got a little worried about even making it to today's wedding! They had closed down part of the road I needed to get to the church because of snow and high winds, but fortunately it was open by this morning, and I had no problems.
This ceremony was held at the Morris Chapel of Morris Farms in Niles, Michigan. What a beautiful place! Simple and elegant, and the acoustics were fabulous. I can't wait to play there again. The music selected for the processionals and recessional was primarily traditional (Canon in D, Bridal Chorus, Trumpet Voluntary), but the couple chose more popular pieces for the prelude, postlude, and unity candle lighting (All I Ask of You, Grow Old Along with Me, Embraceable You, Bless the Broken Road, From This Moment On).
The snow kept falling throughout the ceremony, but let up just in time to get the harp loaded and back on the road.
After the long winter of corporate gigs and holiday parties, I'm always ready for the weddings to start again. It is such an honor to be included in a couple's wedding ceremony, and today was no exception. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Schroth!
