For after today you shall say to the world – This is my husband. This is my wife.

The beautiful words of Robert Fulghum's "From Beginning to End" read by Steve Cavnar opened the wedding ceremony of Blair and Jeff at the elegant Lovett Hall at The Henry Ford. We were so honored to provide the music for this charming couple. We loved their music choices which included "Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns and Roses for the seating of the mothers, Canon in D for the wedding party and the hauntingly beautiful melody of "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera for Blair's processional. Jeff's Godfather, Steve Jaqua, officiated the ceremony with the perfect blend of family humor and reverence for the ceremony. A second reading titled "The Bridge Across Forever" by Richard Bach was read by Hale Kelleher and Peri Percinel, two cousins of the bride. One of the ceremony highlights was the song "You Are the Best Thing" sung by Brendon Schramm and accompanied by Tim Pallin on guitar. They did a truly outstanding job! The Silk Thumb created gorgeous floral arrangements and photographer Amanda Dumouchelle was there to capture the many special moments.
Following the ceremony, we moved upstairs to ballroom and played for cocktails. We had several encounters with "Roary", the mascot of the Detroit Lions and were honored to be
included in the awesome video produced by filmmaker Ryan Doyle of Video Vision 360 and posted on Youtube. Here's the link - you'll see us around the 3:15 mark.
Luke Frutig of Lufru Entertainment was the DJ for the evening and the video is proves it was quite the party. It is worth mentioning that the focus of the day was clearly on Jeff and Blair and not Jeff's father, Governor Rick Snyder. We were impressed with how beautifully it was handled and extend our appreciation to Kelly Brennan, event coordinator for the Snyder family and Donna VanLandschoot, Henry Ford coordinator, for their assistance. Congratulations to Blair and Jeff and best wishes as they begin the adventure of married life.
