For the Bride: A Cinderella Wedding at Ste. Anne de Detroit

20160130_132752Ste. Anne de Detroit has a prominent place in Detroit’s early history.  Construction began two days after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac landed at Detroit and began construction of Fort Ponchartrain, making it the second oldest continuously operating Roman Catholic parish in the United States established when the area was part of the French colony.  The current Gothic Revival cathedral styled church, built in 1886, is located near the Ambassador Bridge and the Michigan Central Station. The stained glass windows and arched ceiling provided a gorgeous backdrop for Katie and Mike wedding last month. Keeping true to the tradition of most Catholic churches, we classical music for the inner portions of the ceremony. Organist Chris Loeffler handled the responsorial psalms and as always, aided us with cues.  Mike and Katie were able to showcase their music preferences with upbeat contemporary pieces for the guests seating and recessional.  We played Beautiful Day by U2, Faithfully by Journey, Firework by Katy Perry and Viva la Vida by Coldplay.  The couple asked for two special songs, both from the musical, Cinderella.  For the bridal party, we played “First Branch” and for Katie’s processional, “Who is She?”  The couple have a love of skiing in Michigan’s upper peninsula and can look forward to sharing many years on the slopes.  Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day!  20160130_13283220160130_132859
