I Am My Beloved and My Beloved Is Mine

photo.jpg2A beautiful wedding was held recently at Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor.  We have played at this facility many times and always rave about the staff.  This experience proved to be no exception.  The ceremony was held in the perennial garden which of course implies a lot of sun.  Since our instruments do not hold up well to direct sunlight, Linda Neely and her staff graciously provided a tent so we could play in the shade.  Melanie King and her staff from Two Foot Creative created a beautiful setting for the ceremony.  Miriam Jerris, a friend of our quartet, directed the ceremony that united Jeremy and Sarah under the chuppah.  The couple met at the University of Michigan and has been planning this wedding across time zones.  They enjoy the music of the Beatles and requested many of their hits for the seating of guests.  We also performed the sentimental music of “Fiddler on the Roof” including “Sabbath Prayer” and “Sunrise, Sunset”.  During the ceremony, Miriam Jerris read the touching poem “These Are the Hands” and shared with guests that the beautiful ketubah was handmade by a family member! The end of the ceremony was marked by the breaking of the glass and shouts of Mazel Tov.  We send Sarah and Jeremy our heartfelt congratulations!
