“You’ll Never Walk Alone” is the adopted phrase for Kord and Julia’s relationship. Certainly, the six bridesmaids and groomsmen in their wedding party insured that they would not walk, nor celebrate, alone on their wedding day either! It was a sunny day for the wedding celebration at Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle. We’ve played there many times before but never in this location. The reception was held in the gorgeous fountain room and the ceremony was positioned right next door. The wall of windows to the right of the seating looked out over the Detroit River and the skyline beyond. Peter Saway led the ceremony which included a wine ceremony, a unique and contemporary ceremony with an old world feel. Like the Sand ceremony, Breaking of the Glass, Rose and Unity Candle ceremonies, the Wine ceremony symbolizes the blending of two lives into one. The couple chose classics of Handel, Vivaldi, Bach and Beethoven for their wedding music. The exception was “All You Need is Love” for the recessional. Michelle from Blumz helped us with cues throughout the day and clearing succeeded in planning a gorgeous day for the couple. The romantic use of the color red in the flower bouquets by Blumz was striking. We’ve noticed that many brides shy away from the color but it is vibrant when done correctly. For Kord and Julia, the color has special significance as it is related to the Liverpool Football Club: Go Reds! Following the ceremony, we moved into the more contemporary cocktail music. Music by the Beatles, Lady Gaga, Greenday along with Broadway hits all received smiles and compliments from the guests. Congratulations to the new couple as they begin the adventure of marriage with the vow of never letting the other walk alone!
