We received a tremendous honor this week!  The Knot is an online site that provides vendor information, reviews and ideas for every possible aspect of ones wedding day. Each year, this online wedding site holds a “best of weddings” competition.  Reviews from former clients are the way in which you accumulate votes.  We are so proud to have been a winner of the Best of Weddings for several years running.  This Hall of Fame trophy was awarded to us for having been voted the “BEST” by real newlyweds four or more times. While the trophy is lovely, its the fact that our former clients are so pleased with our string quartet services that they will take the time to write us a glowing review. Our 5 Star designation, the highest possible, is a point of pride for us.  We consider it an honor to be a part of any couples wedding day and work diligently to provide the best possible musical experience.  The music is a critical part of a wedding day and one that should hold memories for the newlyweds and guests alike.

Planterra Conservatory Creates A Tropical Destination Wedding Here in Michigan

5d91e0d8-8372-447d-ea5f-2198724c51e3[1]A tropical wedding sounds luxuriously appealing but isn’t always practical for today’s couples and their families.  Karine and Christopher exchanged vows in a beautiful tropical setting right here in Michigan at the Planterra Conservatory of West Bloomfield.  The wedding was exceptionally well organized with the help of Megan, event coordinator at Planterra, who made sure that the facility was looking it’s best, and  Tiffany of Party Assurance who orchestrated the event with expertise and calm. A veteran in the wedding business, Tiffany is a delight to work with and we are always thankful for her assistance and reassured when we see her.

The couple chose upbeat contemporary music for their ceremony.  We played “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey, “Firework” by Katy Perry, “Such Great Heights” by Postal Service “Marry Me” by Train and “Starlight” by Muse to mentioned just a few.  Bill Fenton of “I Do’s Your Way” was the officiant and spoke eloquently about the couple and a young marriage. Fairytale Productions, videographers, captured the day for the couple to enjoy for years top come. The bridal party wore soft grey/silvery dresses and was completed by two adorable little boys, one of whom come down in a wagon.  As cute as they were, they could not out shine Karine, who had a gorgeous gown accented with silver and a skirt of soft flowing folds.  It was a beauty! We wish them the very best as they begin the adventure of a lifetime.

Planterra Conservatory Provides Tranquility of Nature for Special Events

199Planterra Conservatory was the venue for Jennifer and Gurtej’s wedding reception.  The couple were married in Aruba and chose to have their reception here in Michigan to celebrate with family and friends.  The Planterra Conservatory is a unique venue, offering a glass-enclosed botanical garden setting for wedding ceremonies, receptions and special events.  We have played there several times now and are always struck by the beauty  of the venue.  From the archway and fountain at the entrance to the wall of succulent plants behind the bar to the twinkling lights, the staff creates a lovely setting for special events. On this occasion, we were even treated to dinner and can tell you that the food was outstanding!

We played a mix of contemporary and nostalgic songs and met two young fans.  Flower girls Macie and Raegan Fritts danced the night away to our music.  Their energy was limitless and the photographer had many great photo opportunities.  Congratulations and best wishes to the new couple!

Family and Tradition a Priority at Temple Israel Wedding and Cocktails

It was a celebration of family and tradition for Michelle and Aaron on their wedding day at Temple Israel. The couple chose a combination of traditional Jewish and contemporary music for their ceremony. We performed Agadah for the seating of the grandparents, Bittersweet Symphony for the bridal party, Somewhere In Time for the Groom and Maids of Honor and the specially chosen “I Will” by the Beatles for Michelle’s bridal processional. Cantorial Soloist Neil Michaels performed the blessings in a moving manner and joined us for the recessional, Simon Tov. A unique quality to the ceremony was the couple’s use of a familial shawl that dates back over 100 years. Rabbi Harold Loss encouraged the couple to feel the love and history of their ancestors as the shawl was wrapped around them. Following the ceremony, we moved to the lobby and played Beatles, Sinatra, Motown and upbeat classical for the cocktail hour. Pat Blackwell of Party Assurance and her staff did an outstanding job coordinating all the parts of this evening. We extend Michelle and Aaron our very best wishes as they begin married life together.

Knollwood Country Club Wedding

Congratulations to Rebecca and Carlos on their wedding on the Sun Deck of the Knollwood Country Club in West Bloomfield. The couple chose to have their ceremony under a beautiful canopy or chuppah. This tradition is a symbol of hospitality and affirms the reality that marriage is the establishment of the home, an island of sanity and serenity.
The bridesmaids wore vibrant purple dresses and processed to the Finale from Handel’s Watermusic while Rebecca entered to Pachelbel’s Canon. Gorgeous bouquets of purple and yellow roses with white hydrangeas were placed along the aisle and woven into the chuppah.
Officiants Miriam Jerris and Deacon Brian Carroll did a wonderful job explaining the different traditions of the Jewish and Latino heritages that were incorporated into the ceremony. The use of the Lasso or chord is a traditional Latino marriage custom in which the cord is placed around the necks of the bride and groom in the form of a figure eight to represent their unity and desire to be together eternally.
A common symbol at Jewish weddings, the breaking of the glass is a customary conclusion to the wedding ceremony. It represents a turning point in the lives of Rebecca and Carlos, a commitment to begin their lives together as husband and wife. The couple, who have studied abroad and share a love of sports, concluded their evening with a reception in the country club. Best wishes as they begin their life together.

An Elegant Affair at Shenandoah Banquet and Conference Center

Congratulations to Reena and Soham who were married on May 30th. We had the pleasure of playing for their cocktail hour at Shenandoah Conference Center. Though currently living in New York City, the couple returned to Michigan to celebrate their wedding with family and friends. While the wedding party and guests enjoyed appetizers, we played a wide variety of music including the Theme from New York, They Way You Look Tonight and Unchained Melody.
The Shenandoah Banquet and Conference Center is gorgeous facility throughout which are themes drawn from ancient Babylonian architecture and design. The grand ballroom was beautifully decorated; each table graced with a centerpiece of white roses, hydrangeas and chrysanthemums. It was truly an elegant affair with a great deal of time and thought evident in the presentation. A special thank you to Dilip, a friend of the couple and the staff of Shendandoah. Our best wishes go out to Reena and Soham as they begin their married life together.

St. Thomas Chaldean Church Wedding

Congratulations to Ruba and Herman! They were married at the St. Thomas Chaldean Church in West Bloomfield. We were so honored to be asked to play for another Chaldean wedding. The church does not allow music during the service itself, but we were asked to play before and after. We were also joined by a beautiful vocalist, Olivia, for Schubert’s ‘Ave Maria’. The bride had a special request that we arrange and play the piece, ‘Sogno’, for her processional. It was a wonderful choice.
