I was asked to play a morning wedding at Hoyt Arboretum. This ceremony was held at the Redwood deck, an intimate setting among old growth redwood trees. The wedding began at 10:30am, which perfectly avoided the 90 degree weather forecast for the afternoon. The couple requested Bach Cello Suite 1, which I’ve always thought sounds better outdoors.
I really enjoyed the readings at the ceremony, one of which was an excerpt from a poem by Rumi:
“Today, like every other day we wake up empty and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down the dulcimer.
Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”
Congratulations Claire and Zahir. Wishing you a long and happy lifetime together!
