Imagine my surprise when I received a lead for Thursday wedding - on that Thursday! Always up for a last-minute performance, I called the client (the groom) who explained that his wedding violinist had cancelled. So we spent the next 30 minutes creating a customized wedding ceremony and cocktail hour music program, and an hour later, I was on my way! They are a bi-cultural couple (the groom is Peruvian and the bride is American) so the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour program included both Latin and American songs! It was a gorgeous backyard wedding in Fredricksburg, Virginia, at night and lit up with LED lights, so my LED Light-Up Violin was the perfect fit for the ceremony! The couple was super happy with their wedding music!
