Who knew that a beautiful paradise existed just a block off of McLoughlin Blvd? I got invited to play a wedding for a lovely couple at Gray Gables Estate, which has a beautiful outdoor cathedral-like setting, a pond and fountain with live Koi, and a very nice indoor area for gathering. The bride’s dream was to walk down the aisle to Pachebel’s Canon in D, and I was honored to play for her and her partner. Congratulations Shelly and Alyssa, many blessings for a long and happy life together!
There is an amazing plant paradise in NW Portland called Pomerius Nursery, and my cello and I got to play among the palm trees! The bride asked me to play a cello arrangement of Endlessly by Amaranthe for her processional. It’s a beautiful song, and one I will keep on my playlist! Congratulations Emily and Edwin!
Surrounded by old growth trees, my cello felt right at home. I always enjoy playing at Hoyt, today there was perfect weather in this perfect setting. The couple asked me to arrange a cello version of “Yellow” by Coldplay for the wedding processional song, and the song worked well on cello with a light synth background loop.
