Liisa and Jeremy were married on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University, with their ceremony in the Founders Hall and reception in Curtiss Hall. The ceremony venue was decorated beautifully in pinks and golds, complete with flower-filled bird cages hanging from the ceiling.
The many windows in the Founders Hall let in the natural light and the colors of an early fall day. Prior to the ceremony, I met with a friend of the bride who was singing during the service, and we were able to rehearse her song long before any of the guests arrived.
Family members were seated to Bach’s “Arioso,” and the wedding party entered to “Ave Maria” by Schubert. The ring bearer turned a little shy in front of all those people, and had to be carried down the aisle! Liisa’s entrance music was “Clair de Lune” by Debussy.
During the ceremony, the singer and I did “Can’t Help Falling in Love” for the unity sand. I especially loved that they wrote their own vows ~ and agreed to disagree on the Oxford Comma! The recessional was “La Gimblette,” and I continued to play until all the guests had filed out to send the bride and groom on their way.
A quick load & unload across campus at Curtiss Hall, and I was playing for the cocktail hour when the first guests arrived after the ceremony!
