Wimbish House Wedding — Geoff and Emily

As you already know, I’ve played for several weddings at Wimbish House on Peachtree Street before.

Well, in June I was back for Geoff and Emily’s wedding!

Our photos today begin “backstage” (yes, I do have a theater background) before the ceremony begins. Here’s Geoff and his groomsmen …

Where’s our officiant? Ah, here she is — Rev. Meghan Gurley, upstairs visiting with Geoff’s mother.

Apparently one of Geoff and Emily’s ceremony themes was “Redheads.” Works for me! 😉

 

The ceremony room downstairs is ready as well. We have Janice at Cover Ups Linens to thank for these beautiful chairs.

As usual, 30 minutes before the ceremony begins, I start playing the prelude music. I typically play Bach minuets, Clementi and Beethoven Sonatinas, MacDowell’s To a Wild Rose, that kind of thing.

Caption Needed!

Hey, what do you think this groomsman is saying here? If anyone has an idea for a good caption, let me know! 🙂

 

Okay, well while you’re pondering that one, let’s move on to the processional, where I’m playing JS Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.”

One of the things I love about Wimbish House it has a piano both upstairs and downstairs, so it’s perfect for a ceremony/cocktail combo. Here’s Geoff and Emily kicking back while I played for the cocktail hour.

After the cocktail hour, I headed home, but for everybody else the party was just getting started!

 

Dinner was provided by Terry at Wild Oats Catering.

I looove fruit, so I think this huge, colorful salad looks fantastic. This was from a local farmer’s market, too — no wonder it looks so good!
