“Made for the Movies” Wedding Day is All Beauty and No Beast

Congratulations to Sheila and Jason on their wedding this past weekend.  The ceremony was held at the Mary-Martha Chapel at Greenfield Village and officiated by Reverend Graham of “A Joyful Celebration Weddings”.  Rev. Graham spoke beautifully on the subject of love and incorporated several poems and quotes that were new to us yet very fitting for this couple.  It turns out that his colleague, Rev. Sherry wrote the wedding  specifically for Sheila and Jason by incorporating the couples life stories, conversations, lyrics from their selected songs, and quotes from people who are inspirational to them. She succeeded in creating a beautifully personal ceremony.  Jason and Sheila have a love of movies and Sheila especially has a strong connection to Beauty and the Beast.  So much so that she chose the music from the movie for her bridal processional.  In fact, all the songs we played for the guest seating and during the ceremony were from movies.  Several of the guests asked us about Glory Of Love from The Karate Kid Two and written by Chicago brass player, Peter Cetera.  We also included “Somewhere Out There” from American Tail for the bridesmaids, Hallelujah from Shrek for the unity candle and “When You Wish Upon A Star” from Pinocchio during the marriage license signing.  The couple recessed to “Pirates of the Caribbean”.  Appropriate to the theme, Sheila had a true Cinderella wedding gown, complete with the tiara.  Following the ceremony, the guests gathered at the Dearborn Inn for cocktails and dinner.  We continued with our movie themed music and hoped that Jason would be around for his favorite, Mission Impossible.  The guests were all having a good time and we were appreciative of all the kind comments.  It’s always a supreme compliment when a guest will take time to come and comment on how much they enjoyed the music.  Our job would be so much more challenging if not for the efficiency and competence of wedding coordinators.  We send our thanks to Cheryl LaPalm of Greenfield Village and Christie Dixon of the Dearborn Inn for their help with set up and cues.  A good coordinator is a wonderful asset to your event.  We send Jason and Sheila our best wishes!

  1. Thanks, Rondo! You played beautifully during the ceremony (and during the reception as I was informed by numerous guests). When I was searching for a quartet, I was extremely impressed with your repertoire (it was by far the most extensive I’d seen). That made it so easy to have exactly the music we wanted at our ceremony/reception (and you know the unique songs we wanted for our wedding!). Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect. Hopefully, I will always remember how each song was played so perfectly.

  2. I go to see daily a few sites and blogs to read posts,
