New York Couple Ties the Knot at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham

20170930_142036Congratulations to Amber and Elana on their beautiful wedding at the Townsend Hotel.  The couple currently lives in New York but has close family ties here in Michigan and choose to hold their wedding ceremony at the elegant hotel located in the heart of Birmingham.  Both Amber and Elana had a processional of their own with the songs “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.  Following the pronouncement, we played “Simon Tov” and the guests enthusiastically joined in.  We then played the cocktail hour and enjoyed several of the guests who made requests or just stood by and sang along.  It was a lovely night for two beautiful people in love.  Best wishes!

Couple Forges the “Forever” Promise

20170930_170334It was a beautiful autumn day for the wedding of Alexandra and Michael.  The bright sun lit up the stained glass windows of Holy Name Catholic Church in Birmingham.  Andrea Solomon Wedding and Event Planner was on site to orchestrate the event which included Petey’s Donuts Truck from Brooklyn Michigan  in the parking lot after the service to provide apple cider and donuts for the guests. Church music director Brandon Gauvin and venue wedding coordinator, Kim, provided awesome support with cues.  Brandon sang the gorgeous Ave Maria during the ceremony.  It’s always a pleasure to meet new friends in our business and we greatly enjoyed  working with him.

Alexandra has a career in fashion and her unique wedding dress was clear evidence of her interest in that field while Michael’s career is in TV and Video Production.  As Monseigneur John Zenz pointed out, they both know what “attracts and holds the eye.” 20170930_170319

The couple chose “Forever” by Chris Brown as the last song of the guests seating as it holds special meaning to them.  They followed it up with “Sky Full of Stars” and “You Are the Best Thing”. It was clear that this fun loving couple were not nervous in the least, but enjoying every moment of their day.

Townsend Hotel Wedding Reception a Timeless Classic

IMG_1083IMG_1080IMG_1078It was an elegant affair. From the pew lanterns at the church to the suspended tea lights over the dance floor to the dining tables named after famous golf courses, John and Jennifer created a romantic evening reminiscent of a timeless classic. We couldn’t help but take several pictures of the beautiful Townsend Hotel in Birmingham decked out for their cocktail hour and reception. We were able to showcase our talents with classical music for the wedding ceremony, held at First United Methodist of Birmingham, followed by contemporary and nostalgic music for their cocktail hour. We received many comments about our Beatles arrangements and as always, The Game of Thrones theme song is a big hit. We’ve added several new songs to our repertoire including Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple and Such Great Heights by Postal Service. We premiered them here and both were well received by the guests.
Jennifer and John gifted their guests with a beautiful evening. We always appreciate being entrusted with the honor of providing the music for a couple’s ceremony. This was a delightful event for us and we send John and Jennifer our very best wishes.

Wedding at Birmingham Community House Offers Surprise for Guests

IMG_1065IMG_1066Congratulations to Amanda and Evan on their wedding last week at the Birmingham Community House. The couple chose to have the wedding upstairs and it was a beautifully appointed room accented by their chuppah. As the picture shows, there was a gorgeous wall hanging stitched with the famous quote, “I am beloved and my beloved is mine” that served as the canopy. What a treasure for their home! Miriam Jerris conducted the ceremony and shared the couple’s story with the guests. It was fascinating and a testimony to the power of Scrabble! For music, they chose romantic nostalgic songs such as “The Way You Look Tonight”, “Someone to Watch over Me” and “I Will” by the Beatles. The families and bridal party processed to “No Surprises” by Radiohead while Amanda chose to process to “Till There Was You” from the musical, Music Man. They created quite a surprise with lots of laughter for their guests when chose “The Simpson’s Theme” for their recessional. This fun loving couple is off to a great start and we send them our best wishes.
