May 9, 2010, Yoonhee & Do Hyun's wedding at The Gramercy
On Mother's Day, May 9, 2010, Yoonhee and Do Hyun were married at The Gramercy Mansion. The temperature was a bit cooler than expected, but the ceremony was still held outside in the ceremony garden. The bridal party walked down the aisle while our String Trio played Mouret's Rondeau. Yoonhee selected the traditional, Bridal March by Wagner for her processional. When the bride and groom presented flowers to their parents, the trio played Salut d’Amor. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the couple was officially introduced and kissed as we stared playing Mendelssohn's Wedding March. After the ceremony, the guests moved inside the mansion for the cocktail hour. We also moved inside and played cocktail hour music until the bridal party was ready to be introduced. The Vienna Blood Waltz was chosen for the introduction of the bridal party. Once the bride and groom were introduced, we began playing, Por Una Cabeza. The couple had choreographed a dance to match our arrangement of this piece. The bride changed into a separate dress for the reception and the first dance. They did a lovely job of dancing to this tango--perfectly timed! The guests loved the addition of live music for this dance. We received many kind compliments from their guests!
