I was contacted by the mother of the groom to play for an intimate backyard wedding. Mayra was so excited to have me play for her son’s special day and so was I! Emily and Marvin are high school sweethearts and I loved hearing about their love story. I was a little nervous about the weather heading to the ceremony. It was gray and overcast with rain on the radar. However, the clouds parted and the sun began to shine during the ceremony. It was perfect! The backyard was beautifully decorated. It was like a Pinterest Paradise (If you don’t already know, I love Pinterest so this is a big compliment!). I LOVED it! Emily looked beautiful and her dress was gorgeous! I loved that the bridesmaids all wore different style dresses but matched in color. The groom was super involved in selecting the music. I love when a groom gets really involved, it shows their excitement to get married. This couldn’t be any more true! You could tell how excited Marvin was to marry his bride and it showed in his vows (the couple wrote their own vows). Marvin’s father officiated the ceremony, it was so special! He promised he wasn’t going to get choked up but he couldn’t fight the tears! So sweet!! After the ceremony, I hung around for a little bit and the guests posed and took pictures with the harp. Beth is a perfect backdrop for photos! Thank you Emily and Marvin for including me in your special ceremony. I wish you both a lifetime of love, success, and happiness!
