Where to begin!? Jillian & Dan's wedding day was a spectacular event in the heart of Northeastern Pennsylvania at the picturesque Irem Country Club Pavilion! With nothing but rain for days this summer, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for our couple! Nothing but blue skies for days and breathtaking views for miles.
This was such a fun and unique wedding - Jillian & Dan selected a mix of mostly popular and contemporary music that they loved - everything from Adele's 'Make You Feel My Love' to cocktail hour selections by Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and more. One of our favorite parts of planning music with our clients is helping them choose music from the hundreds of popular, contemporary and classical options in our repertoire!
However, one of the most fun SURPRISE elements of the day was the AVIVA Strings bagpiper (yes! bagpiper!) who arrived in full, traditional highland dress and piped ahead of Jillian as she took her walk down the aisle towards her soon-to-be husband. Our piper then lead the recessional with the traditional and celebratory 'Scotland the Brave' at the end of the ceremony! Having the piper was a big surprise for the bride and groom's family and guests and we couldn't have been happier to help pull it off! As our string trio moved over to perform for cocktail hour after the ceremony, the bagpiper continued with upbeat and fun selections, accompanying guests as they were heading to the party! We can't think of a better way to kick off the celebration!
