Music to Our Ears

Over the weekend I sent in the contract and deposit for our ceremony musicians! Some of you might be aware that were having trouble finding musicians for our ceremony since I wanted string instruments and Andy wanted just a piano. Finding musicians over playing recorded music was important because I like the sound/quality of live musicians and our church will not allow recorded music as indicated by their wedding handbook. We found a great compromise in the Piace Duo which includes a piano and a cello. The duo is a married couple who are both classically trained from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music so obviously very capable of playing beautiful music.

I was also concerned about being able to pick music that I haven't heard over and over at weddings and found that some musicians only offered a small list of those traditional songs. While many traditional songs are beautiful we wanted to pick music that would help to personalize our wedding and make it different from others. Well problem solved with this duo since they have a huge repetoire of wedding appropriate music and are willing to learn new songs if the sheet music is available. We are very happy about this choice and excited to have found some musicians that fit both of our preferences.

If you would like to hear some of their music samples you can go here.
