Wedding at Martha-Mary Chapel of Greenfield Village

Congratulations to Amanda and John on their wedding this past weekend at the Mary-Martha Chapel in Greenfield Village. The Chapel was built in 1929 by Henry Ford as a tribute to his mother, Mary Litogot Ford and his Mother-in-Law, Martha Bench Bryant. Amanda and John selected a wide variety of music for their ceremony. We played everything from Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto to “Don’t Stop Believing”. Amanda made a special request for her bridal processional. Thankfully, one of our quartet members has a gift for arranging and wrote the “Tour of the Kingdom from Little Mermaid” enabling us to play it for Amanda’s grand entrance. The couple created a ceremony that was personal and family oriented with the involvement of John’s father, Mr. Thomas Bowen, as the officiant for the service. The couple’s personality was also evident in their choice of a recessional. Also arranged by our quartet member, “The Throne Room from Star Wars” made a celebratory exit for the newly married couple. Congratulations and best wishes to John and Amanda.

  1. Thank you so much for playing our wedding this weekend! We had a great time and we thoroughly enjoyed the music. We received many great comments about our recessional, and your arrangement of the Tour of the Kingdom music was excellent. Thanks again for helping to make our day wonderful!

  2. YES! Thank you for sharing your gift of beautiful music. I was thoroughly impressed with how you improvised by playing longer then planned due to the “technical difficulties” that took place. Thank you for helping make the evening special.

  3. Can you email me with any tips on how you made your site look like this, I would be appreciative.

    • Our theme is ‘Quentin’. It is an older theme and we never switched to the newer ‘Quintus’. We liked the more formal looking style. Hope that helped.
