5/26/19 – Wedding @ Irving Street Studios

IMG_0584Wedding at Iriving Street Studios, downtown Portland.  Light and airy venue with lots of natural wood, excellent acoustics.  The couple chose quite a few Beatles tunes for the pre-ceremony music, which I always love playing.  What is it about the Beatles that appeals to so many?  It’s music that so many can relate to.

The Processional songs were: cello and looper versions of  “Make You Feel My Love” by Adele, and “I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You”.

Congratulations to the Skripsky’s!

5/25/19 – Urban Wedding @ Urban Studios

In a total contrast to the outdoor, lodge themed weddings of last week, I got to play a wedding in a very urbanIMG_0562.jpg venue in Downtown Portland.  I enjoyed the modern lighting, decor, and huge windows.

The Processional was a cello version of “A Thousand Years”.  And the Recessional:  “Don’t Stop Believing” on cello and looper.

5/20/19, Wedding @ Silver Falls State Park

 

Silver Falls State Park has some of the most amazing scenery in Oregon!  I’ve been hiking at the Falls, but I’ve neveIMG_0558.jpgr been to this lodge.  The ceremony was held outdoors in an outdoor cathedral, surrounded by silent, old-growth trees.  Instead of using a generator, I was happy I brought by battery powered amp so everyone got to enjoy the sounds of nature and the cello.

The processional songs were cello  versions of “Speechless” by Dan and Shay, and “At Last”.

Afterwards, the party  moved into the lodge for the reception dinner.  Absolutely gorgeous!
