What a great way to start the month of October. Last weekend's beautiful outdoor wedding was riverside at The Burroughs Home and Gardens, located in the quaint historic district of Fort Myers. The ceremony was held out under the trees on the lawn with breathtaking views of the Caloosahatchee River. The bride, Maggie, chose all classical pieces for her ceremony playlist.
For the bridal party, I played Spring from Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons.
For Maggie's processional I had the pleasure of learning a new piece that has become one of my favorite bridal processionals for those wanting a more classical style of music. I played, The Wedding March from Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro.
For the exit of the bride and groom and their guests, I played Hornpipe from Handel's Water Music.
The cocktail hour was immediately following the ceremony and was located both inside and outside along the wrap around porch of the historic home.
For I had the pleasure of playing an antique piano made by Winterroth & Co. in the early 1900's. This is the oldest piano I have ever played and was a real treat. I played a mixture of classical and contemporary pieces for this part of the wedding festivities.
It was such a treat playing in the parlor of the Burroughs Home. I truly felt placed back in time as I enjoyed all the old fashioned furniture and decorations. Congrats again to Maggie and her new hubby! Thanks for allowing me to share music for your special day.
