Elegant Wedding with an Outdoor Feel at the Royal Park in Rochester

Congratulations to Laurie and Steven who were married last Friday at the Royal Park Hotel. With Old-World attention to detail and classic design, the hotel is a modern tribute to the elegant English manor house. The extensive use of quarter-sawn cherry, marble and slate luxuriously blend to create the architectural style and grace of the Royal Park. The ceremony was held in the elegant glass Conservatory. This is a magnificent setting that provides an outdoor feeling without the complications or concerns of a true outdoor wedding. This day in particular was very windy and would have proven difficult for everyone involved. Instead, the couple had the beauty of the outdoor garden and fountain, while warm and comfortable in the glass Conservatory.
Our quartet played an all classical wedding, quite fitting for the setting. The bridal party and Laurie processed to the traditional Pachelbel’s Kanon and recessed to Vivaldi’s Autumn. The Reverend Goodrum officiated the ceremony with just the right mix of warmth and humor. The flowers used were roses and hydrangeas in beautiful fall colors. This theme was taken into the reception with inventive centerpieces by the Silk Thumb of branches with roses suspended from them. The cake, by Cakes by Stephanie in Monroe, was a compliment to it all with elegant heart shaped piping on the each layer.
We were delighted to play for the cocktail hour and in fitting with the manor house setting, played many nostalgic selections such as Embraceable You, At Last, Moonlight Serenade and I Only Have Eyes for You. As we were leaving the Trilogy Band, always a compliment to any event, were getting started and sounding fantastic. Congratulations and best wishes to Laurie and Steven as they begin married life together.
