Nichole and Randy were married last July at the Sheraton in Burlington in the open atrium in the center of the Hotel. Such a beautifully open, light, airy location, surrounded by plants, water fountain, and we played from a gazebo in the center of the front section! Many thanks to Kevin Morin for these pictures!

I love it when I am able to meet the bride and groom before the wedding – and this was one of those occasions. I met with Nichole and Randy in Montpelier in January, on their tour of wedding venders.


Nichole and Randy chose “Turidae” flute/violin duo for their ceremony music. Nichole’s special bridesmaid was her daughter, and of course my violin partner was my own daughter. Well, let’s just say I still often cry at weddings, though never perceptibly while I’m playing…

Nichole and Randy chose mellow traditional choices for their prelude music. They chose “Sheep May Safely Graze” as processional for the wedding party – that was the one that brought Nichole to tears during our meeting in January – so that was that! For the bride’s processional, above, Pachelbel’s Canon in D.  And for the recessional, the traditional Wedding March by Mendelssohn.
