A Historic Organ, a String Quartet and a Resounding Trumpet Share In A New Year's Eve Wedding
Updated: Feb 12, 2019
Located near the near the Ambassador Bridge and the Michigan Central Station, Saint Anne de Detroit is the second oldest continuously operating Roman Catholic parish in the United States. The church was established when the area was part of the French colony, Fort Pontchartrain du Detroit, which later developed as the city of Detroit. It was in this beautiful historic church that Rebecca and Danny exchanged wedding vows. We were so pleased to meet and work with Joe Moss, music director and organist for Ste. Anne's along with church vocalist, Sandra. Our long time friend and trumpeter John Hartwick was there to join us on the Purcell's Trumpet Voluntary for Rebecca's processional and Handel's Finale from the Water Music for the couple's recessional. Monsignor John Kasza conducted the ceremony which included communion during which we performed Dona Nobis Pacem with our two new friend, Joe and Sandra. Rebecca's mother, Debbie, played a vital role in planning the elegant day which unfolded flawlessly. The church was decorated for the holidays and provided a beautiful backdrop for Rebecca and Danny's wedding. We wish this lovely couple the very best.
