Just a quick post because I'm ultra excited!
We booked another vendor today! Another scary white Excel square is now filled in. FI and I were kicking around the idea of a small jazz band to play during our 1.5 hour cocktail between the ceremony and the reception. But after checking some prices we decided it was too expensive for something that we really could do without.
Then I read some fantastic reviews about a classical guitarist named Derek Macrae. I went to his website and absolutely fell in love with his work. My FI plays guitar (quite well!) and I have always loved listening to him play. So a solo guitarist FITS us perfectly. It was sort of like when we walked into our venue (The Doctor's House) and it just felt like US.
The fact that Derek is ridiculously frugal helps too! He will be playing ALL of our ceremony music AND our cocktail for considerably less than what the jazz bands were charging for the cocktail alone. Woo hoo!!
Now we have to start thinking about music. Derek has samples on his site and they all make me weepy. Which I guess is a good thing.
