The countdown of our favorite 2017 weddings and events continues with a beautiful, rainy wedding at the Four Seasons in Atlanta. The wedding took place high above the city, with gentle rain streaming down the glass windows and the city as the backdrop. So gorgeous!
Congrats to Elizabeth and Michael!! Elizabeth walked down the aisle to Schumann's "Traumerei," which is one of my favorite classical pieces!
Even the lobby of the Four Seasons is gorgeous!
In June, we got to play an event for the International Rotary Club. the event was held at the Georgia Aquarium, so we had a blast playing next to the fish and whales!
We played the cocktail hour in the lobby, and the remainder of the event in the ballroom where the giant, awesome fish tanks are. It was so cool to play right next to the whales and rays!
For this event, we played a lot of jazzy standards, with some classical tunes thrown in.
Later in June, we got to play a wedding at the Fabulous Fox Theater in Atlanta! The wedding was held in the Egyptian Ballroom, with the cocktail hour taking place on the outdoor patio.
How beautiful is that ceiling!
Marcella and William's wedding was very sweet and incorporated a lot of elements of their faith. We played a lot of beautiful classical pieces for this wedding. which seemed very appropriate in this setting. A sweet wedding in an elegant setting makes for an all around lovely day!
We loved this outdoor patio space at the Fox!
In July, we got to play at one of our favorite venues, The Conservatory at Waterstone in downtown Acworth.
Whenever we play at the Conservatory at Waterstone, we sit on the balcony overlooking the ceremony. It's neat to have a bird's-eye view of the ceremony!
Tiffany and Branden's wedding was absolutely precious. It's obvious that they love each other like crazy. Their wedding was a testament not only to their love for each other, but of their faith in God. Their set list was awesome--for the prelude, we played a lot of super romantic, jazzy love songs like Gershwin's "Summertime" and Etta James' "At Last." Tiffany walked down the aisle to "Make You Feel My Love," and the couple left to Coldplay's "Viva la Vida." You can find a video of their recessional on our instagram account!
I'll end this post with one of the many outtake photos that fill my camera roll. We have way too much fun playing together! ;)
