Shannon and Ryan were married on October 25, 2009 at The Gramercy Bed and Breakfast. Our String Quartet performed for their outdoor ceremony down by the gazebo. The bride and groom requested that we play Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #3 for the wedding party's processional. We composed a string quartet arrangement of Coldplay's "Clocks" for the bride's entrance, which was beautiful! Before the couple exchanged rings, they had the ushers pass their wedding rings around to all of their guests. The rings were threaded through a ribbon and each guest had the opportunity to hold the rings while we performed Handel's Passacaglia. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the couple was introduced as we played, "All You Need Is Love." After the ceremony, our string quartet moved to the mansion house where we performed and upbeat mix of jazz and tangos for the couple's cocktail hour.
