Flint Hill Wedding in Historic Norcross

One of the really neat about being a wedding musician (of which there are many) is that I get to travel all over the Atlanta area and visit all kinds of beautiful and interesting venues.

This past weekend was my first time at Flint Hill in Historic Norcross!

Flint Hill is a 170-year old home located on a quiet street surrounded by oak trees that boasts “the essence of Southern hospitality” and a “unique blend of old southern charm and modern function.”

Above is the set-up before the ceremony began, in their outdoor (and yes, heated!) tent! If you look closely, you can see my digital Yamaha piano set up in the front corner.

The weather couldn’t be nicer for a January wedding … and it became even more beautiful as it began to get dark!

Now Jessica must be a cutting-edge, trendy kinda gal, because her gown has not just one, but two elements of the hot new 2014 wedding gown trends:

  1. Lace
  2. Black and white

A black and white wedding gown may sound a little odd if you’ve never seen it before, BUT … oh my gosh, don’t you just love it? The color combo plus the lace … classy, classy, classy!

Big important note!

When I first wrote this post and sent the link to Jessica, she informed me that her dress was not, in fact, black and white, which goes to prove why I am a musician and a writer and NOT a florist, dress designer, or photographer.

Jessica’s dress was actually ivory with a midnight blue sash with ivory lace on top. Also, her wedding bands were black diamonds.

That is about ten times better than “black and white,” so thank you, Jessica, for the correction. 🙂

After the ceremony, Risa (my very helpful assistant) and I quickly unhooked the digital piano, brought it into the building, and set it up for cocktail hour, which was catered by A Divine Event.

I played from my favorite wedding book, which included songs like “All I Ask of You” from Phantom of the Opera, “Seasons of Love” from RENT, and “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney.

Looking forward to coming back to Flint Hill in May for Kimberle and Wayne’s wedding!
