Officiant Shares Words of Wisdom: “Love is About Participation”

201310180800261Nichole Bertucci of “A Simple I Do” shared profound words of wisdom during Calla and Tyler’s wedding ceremony at the historic Hartland Music Hall. Included among those wise word was the phrase “Love is not about possession but participation.”

Hartland Music Hall was built by members of the First Congregational Church in 1858. It is one the oldest public buildings in Livingston County, an outstanding example of Greek Revival architecture.  The building was a gift to the community of Hartland from John Robert Crouse, Sr. M. Crouse was a local philanthropist who performed many community services through a program he sponsored called the “Hartland Area Project.”  In February 1980, the Music Hall became another Livingston County structure to be included in the State Register of Historic Sites by the Michigan Historical Commission. A dedicated steward and renovator of the hall, Don, was on hand for Calla and Tyler’s ceremony and proved to be a great help along with the Ashley from Festoons and Flourishes.                                                                              20161022_152324

Tyler and Calla chose an eclectic mix of music for their ceremony. We played “Wagon Wheel”, John Legend’s “All of Me”, the nostalgic “Moon River” and the traditional “Pachelbel’s Canon”.  During the lighting of the Unity candle, we accompanied their two friends Andrea and Katie on a beautiful rendition of “So Are You To Me”, arranged for our string quartet by well known arranger and conductor, Matthew Croft.  In a  statement of their affection for their alma mater, the couple chose the MSU Fight Song for their recessional. Congratulations Calla and Tyler!
