Abby and Justin had one of those picture perfect summer days in one of those picture perfect Vermont locations. Tourterelle has a strong reputation for fine dining in the French Country style, and on top of that, their views, at the crest of the hill in New Haven, Vermont, just can’t be beat. Dona Davis just sent me the link to the pictures and, as you can see, between Dona’s great photography skills, the views, and Abby’s amazing smile that just radiated through every picture, my greatest challenge in putting together this blog entry was narrowing the choices of which pictures to use! I could have easily filled many pages and spent the whole day uploading pictures! It’s also well worth checking out Dona’s beautiful web site and blog at www.donadavis.com.



Abby and Justin chose solo flute for their wedding and cocktail hour music. It has been a summer of primarily less traditional music choices at the weddings I’ve played, with littl1Daltar1e bits of traditional wedding music peppered in here and there. Abby and Justin’s repertoire choices are a perfect example. After numerous communications and YouTube exchanges, Abby and Justin chose the more traditional Pachelbel’s Canon in D for the processional of the wedding party, and The Lover’s Waltz by Jay Unger for Abby’s processional.


There’s nothing like the face of an enraptured groom. Sigh…


 For their recessional, Justin and Abby selected the Gigue from Bach’s Orchestral Suite in D.


 OK, can we go play now?
