Megan and Bhaskar’s was a September wedding at the Shelburne Farms Coach Barn on the shore of Lake Champlain. The day started out drizzly and overcast, but was one of those weddings where, though it rains in the morning, it did not rain during the ceremony, or for most of the rest of the day, as you can see in the pictures below!

Megan, Bhaskar, and Megan’s Mom Stephanie, chose flute/violin duo for their wedding music. My friend Liz Reid joined me on violin for this. They opted for prelude music that was “upbeat but wedding appropriate” to accompany their guests as they arrived. We selected primarily a combination of Mozart, Telemann and Haydn duos.
They selected Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” for the bridesmaids’ processional, and Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus” for the bride’s processional with her father. For the end of the ceremony into the beginning of cocktail hour, they requested “something upbeat with perhaps a slight Irish lilt to it.” We suggested “Carolan’s Concerto” for the recessional, and continued with some traditional Irish, English and Scottish tunes, mixed in with appropriate and light classical selections.
As you can see, the morning rain didn’t make a dent in dampening anyone’s spirits! It seemed to add a misty sort of glow to the day.
