I was very honored to be the wedding pianist for the ceremony and reception of Sean & Isamar Thomas at the Sand Canyon Country Club in Santa Clarita, CA. What a lovely way to start the Spring season! I performed music chosen by the bride & groom to bring in the wedding party, bridal march and recessional. I love the fact that more and more weddings have live piano music performing modern selections that specifically match the musical taste of the bride and groom. The traditional wedding march is great, and really never gets old, but there is such lovely and magical music that works perfectly, and also embodies an emotional tone that is a perfect match for the ceremony and to celebrate the new life embarked upon by a couple.
Following the ceremony, I moved into the adjacent reception hall, where I then played cocktail style piano during the reception and dinner. Sand Canyon Country Club has a gorgeous Steinway Grand piano that was magical to play and helped create the perfect ambient backdrop for the reception.
Being a wedding pianist is one of my favorite types of piano performance event.
