Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford Continues its Tradition as Historical Venue with Spectacular Service for Weddings

20160220_183842The view overlooking The Henry Ford from the front of Martha Mary Chapel at sunset was stunning.  Though it was February, the day felt more like a day in April for Alexandra and William’s wedding day.  With an elegant pipe organ, towering ceiling, candle-lit chandelier and a doorway that opens onto the Village Green, Martha-Mary Chapel has the refined beauty of 19th-century New England church.  As usual, the simplicity of the Chapel conveys 20160220_183821-1an intimacy for weddings and helps to maintain the focus on the couple and the significance of the ceremony. In keeping with the historical theme, the couple elected to have traditional music for their ceremony.  We played Handel’s Watermusic Air for the mother’s seating, Rigaudon by Campra for the bridal party and Kanon in D for Alexandra’s processional.  The reception was held in the Eagle Tavern, 19th-century Inn which offers an authentic historical experience featuring social customs, period menu and costumed staff.  The couple is fond of 20160220_184147Disney and used the theme for their wedding cake and the reception music.  We performed every Disney medley we have in our 700+ repertoire and on several occasions had guests singing along.  Our Celtic/Irish music was also very popular! Throughout the evening, the guests were encouraged to write a word of marital advice on provided paper and to underline their favorite scripture in the couple’s bible.  We’ve had the pleasure of playing weddings throughout the Henry Ford for many years and are always appreciative of the staff’s efficiency and helpfulness.  This night was no exception.  The staff is the final touch to an already extraordinary wedding venue.  It was a pleasure to be a part of Alexandra and William’s wedding day.  Best wishes!  20160220_200046
