“Fair Winds and Following Seas” for Captain’s Club Newlyweds

20160814_141631The Captain’s Club at Woodfield in Grand Blanc was the perfect setting for a nautical themed wedding last weekend.  Peter, who served on the USS Constitution, married Samantha, a doctor from Boston, beside the gazebo. Kerri Pruitt Bowly and her staff provided golf carts to those who needed a little assistance getting to the gazebo on the warm and humid afternoon.

The couple met in Boston and shared the responsibilities on planning the wedding including the selection of music. Samantha included two well known Catholic hymns into her service.  We played “Your Are Mine” for Samantha’s processional, “Make Me a Channel of Your Peace” for the signing of the marriage license and “We are Many Parts” for the couple’s recessional.  We had the pleasure of again working with Nichole Bertucci, of “A Simple I Do”. When we see Nichole, we know the wedding is going to run smoothly and on time.

We moved inside for the cocktail and played Peter’s list of music which included many Beatles hits.  We know that the couple were dealing with pictures but hope Peter heard some of his requested favorites! The guests gave us great feedback and several stopped by to tell us of their appreciation.  There were three young girls who especially enjoyed our music as they danced around the cake table!  20160814_141719

We offer the nautical blessing, “fair winds and following seas” to Samantha and Peter as they begin their amazing life journey!

Woodfield Golf Course Wedding

Congratulations to Sarah and Rick!  They were married at the Woodfield Golf Course in Grand Blanc (http://www.woodfieldweddings.com/).  We always enjoy playing at the Woodfield.  Thank-you to Tracie from ‘You’re the Bride’ (http://www.yourethebride.com/) for all of your help.  The couple’s friend, Tony, did a nice job officiating the service.  We were asked to play some fun contemporary selections as prelude music.  Some of the requests were, ‘Open Arms’, ‘Smooth’, ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’, and ‘Stairway to Heaven’.  The Bridesmaids entered to ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.  The bride entered to ‘Dancing Queen’.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the bride’s choices of music.
