When one thinks about a practice tee at a golf course, seldom does the idea of a wedding come to mind, except when that place is at Kensington Golf and Country Club in Naples. The lush green grass of this practice tee serves as a perfect lawn area looking out onto an even more breathtaking view of the large lake that surrounds it. This is the place where Megan and Brian tied the knot this past weekend.
The couple chose to hire acoustic duet Barefoot Saturday for there ceremony music. The duo features male and female vocals and harmonies as well as the option for acoustic guitar and/or piano. Megan and Bryan chose to have a truly authentic acoustic vibe for their music and decided to just have guitar as the accompanying instrument.
The Set list for Megan and Brian:
Prelude Music as Guests Arrive
A Thousand Years, Christina Perri
Can't Help Falling in Love, Elvis
Come Away with Me, Norah Jones
Everything, Michael Buble
Parents and Grandparents
You and Me, Lifehouse
I'll Be, Edwin McCain
It's Your Love, Tim McGraw
Over the Rainbow, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
The two songs learned for this wedding included I'll Be and It's Your Love. Part of the fun of being a wedding musician is learning new songs. Even if a musician is already familiar with a song, the process of learning a song to be performed for someones wedding is extremely special and rewarding. The musician has the opportunity to make it their own, automatically creating something unique for the couple to hear and never forget.
This wedding was one of the first where we witnessed a drone, yes a drone, flying above us in the sky. It was taking pictures and video of the bride and groom as they exited, and also of the guests as they assembled around the couple in the shape of a heart. What a fantastic idea! I later came to find out that Bryan is the owner of Naples Drone Photography. So if you're a bride who is intrigued by this extremely creative opportunity for your ceremony, check them out.
