My favorite time to write is the day after a fabulous performance, when I am basking in the afterglow of an amazing event! I am always filled with gratitude for my clients, my band-mates, and the Starlight team who help put it all together. When you strive as we do to create the perfect blend of romance, elegance, excitement, surprise, crazy fun and variety, the result is truly something to be proud of.
Last night’s wedding of Lindsay Zweibel and Andrew Till at 583 Park Avenue was the culmination of intense and joyful planning. Every detail was considered, especially with regard to the music.
Some of my favorite moments were:
-Andrew and his parents walking down the aisle to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts.
-Lindsay entering the ceremony framed in a vibrant white light, marching to Pachelbel’s Canon.
-Andrew’s best men (brothers Harrison and Grant Till) doing an awesome break-dance in the middle of their toast!
-Seeing many of our favorite past brides and grooms, like Elyssa and David Emden, and Rachel and Jonathan Wilf!
-The purple electric violin that our fiddle player brought to play the licks on Heartland’s “I Loved Her First” for Lindsay’s dance with her father.
-The stunning vocals we did on Boyz II Men’s “Song for Mama” for Andrew and his Mom.
-Performing an “unplugged” set during food service, which included “Layla,” “Free Falling,” and “I’m Yours.”
-Guest appearance by our own Sarah Tolar Scott, who is always such a joy to collaborate with.
-Hopping up on the drums during the dinner set to keep things moving!
-Lindsay joining us on stage in her second dress change and dancing with the band to Rhianna’s “Only Girl in the World.”
-Bringing out rock star Ryan Shaw to sing “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Sweet Child of Mine.”
-Planning all of the special touches and surprises that delighted Andrew and Lindsay and their guests.
It was an absolutely wonderful evening and I couldn’t be happier today. Thank you again to Lindsay and Andrew and your family for choosing Starlight to be part of your special day!
