May 8, 2010, Tina & Michael's ceremony at The Notre Dame Chapel
Tina & Michael almost did not get married on May 8th. When they arrived at the church, it was discovered that someone forgot to bring the wedding rings. Luckily, one of the groomsmen drove back home and got the rings, however this delayed the start of the ceremony by 20 minutes. Fortunately, Berta & Tammy had plenty of music and continued playing pre-ceremony music until the rings were brought to the church. The violin & piano duo played the Pachelbel Canon for the bridal party and Trumpet Voluntary for Tina's entrance. In addition to the ceremony music, the duo also played the Catholic Mass of Creation parts. When the couple lighted the unity candle, the duo played, Be Thou My Vision. For the Holy Communion and Filipino Ritual with the veil & cord, the couple selected Jesu, Joy of the Man's Desiring. When Tina & Michael presented flowers to the Blessed Mother, Ave Maria was played. Up to this point, all of the music was completely traditional, however the couple surprised everyone when the musicians began, Don't Stop Believin' for the recessional. What a great ending!!
