Rondo Honored with The Knots “HALL OF FAME” Award

20160916_083458

We received a tremendous honor this week!  The Knot is an online site that provides vendor information, reviews and ideas for every possible aspect of ones wedding day. Each year, this online wedding site holds a “best of weddings” competition.  Reviews from former clients are the way in which you accumulate votes.  We are so proud to have been a winner of the Best of Weddings for several years running.  This Hall of Fame trophy was awarded to us for having been voted the “BEST” by real newlyweds four or more times. While the trophy is lovely, its the fact that our former clients are so pleased with our string quartet services that they will take the time to write us a glowing review. Our 5 Star designation, the highest possible, is a point of pride for us.  We consider it an honor to be a part of any couples wedding day and work diligently to provide the best possible musical experience.  The music is a critical part of a wedding day and one that should hold memories for the newlyweds and guests alike. If you are looking for wedding music, check out any of our 70 reviews on The Knot.

Classic Elegance Sets Tone for Intimate Wedding at Oakhurst Country Club

Congratulations to Jaclyn and Chris on their beautiful wedding this past weekend at Oakhurst Country Club in Clarkston.  We have played four wedding in the past six weeks at Oakhurst and there is a comfort to walking into a venue where the staff are familiar faces and say “hello again!” as you pass.  Regina is always consistently excellent and clear with her cues.  Playing frequently at Oakhurst gives us the pleasure of seeing how each couple decorates the venue and makes it a personal extension of their personalities. As you can see from the picture, the small tin buckets with baby’s breath were darling on the chairs.  The candles against the simple backdrop of the pine woods set the tone for an intimate and elegant event.  The Rev. Gary Friske officiated the ceremony which included the reading “I Carry Your Heart” by E.E.Cummings and the popular wedding scripture, I Corinthians 13.  The family and bridal party, wearing classic short dresses, walked down the aisle to “The Ludlows” a theme song from the Brad Pitt movie “Legends of the Fall”. The young ring bearer, Jace, did a great job and looked so handsome in his suit.   Jacklyn looked classically elegant in her gown as she processed with her father to Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “All I Ask of You”.

Following the ceremony, we had a great time playing a mix of contemporary and nostalgic music for the cocktail hour.  We received several compliments and thoroughly enjoy our evening with these two lovely families.  We extend our very best wishes to Jaclyn and Chris as they begin their lives together.

St. Daniel Catholic Church Wedding

Congratulations Leah and Ray! They were married at the St. Daniel Catholic Church on March 5, 2011. We were honored to play for their special day. They requested Trumpet Voluntary and Kanon as their processional selections, Schubert Ave Maria for their unity candle lighting, and Ode to Joy as their recessional. We also played some classical favorites as prelude music. Leah looked beautiful in her striking wedding dress, with her flowers from Petal Perfect Florist. Thank-you to Laura Davis Events for doing such a wonderful job – as usual – coordinating everything. We hope Leah and Ray have a wonderful life together!

Oakhurst Golf Club Wedding

Congratulations to Courtney and Brandon! They were married at the Oakhurst Golf Club in Clarkston. The bridesmaids wore a beautiful dark blue. I’m sure the pictures of the bride and bridesmaids next to the fall leaves are gorgeous. It was only about 45 degrees, so we were unable to play outside. We played just inside the locker room doors with the windows open for the ceremony. We also played upstairs for the cocktail hour. We were requested to play classical selections for the ceremony, including Bach Air on the G String, Handel Watermusic, and Charpentier Te Deum. During cocktails, we enjoyed judging the crowd and playing a mixture of styles including jazz, nostalgic, and contemporary. Thank-you to Leah, the Oakhurst coordinator. http://www.oakhurstgolf.com/
