Creative Family Produces a Beautiful Wedding
It was so much fun for me to work again with this family. They have great ideas and thoroughly enjoyed the planning process!
As the bride described the Father Daughter Dance, “It’s more like performance art”. This interpretive dance piece was accompanied by a Live Solo Guitar performance of Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Greg Karas.
As it turned out the father of the bride plays guitar as well as conducts the choir at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Northridge, CA! As a surprise to everyone he performed “Mood For A Day” from the Album “Fragile” by Guitarist Steve Howe of British art rock group Yes.
Music: Earth Angel (performed live by Bridesmaid/Vocalist – Kristin Onorati, Guitarist Greg Karas and Pianist Eric Zimmermann.
Mother Son Dance
Music: In My Life, The Beatles
Cutting of the Cake (inside the Vault)
Music: This Magic Moment
Cocktail Hour Music
It may be that Dad’s creativity had been passed to his daughter. However, the bride had her own ideas and knew what she wanted. It was inspiring to me how certain she was in her choices. For example, she chose party music from the 60s for her cocktail hour. Everyone “bopped” and sang along; a great way to start off her wedding reception!
