The New Wedding Video

Recorded live at Perkins Chapel, SMU, Dallas, Texas on October 16, 2010

Condensed to just under 10 minutes - starting with prelude and culminating with the bride’s processional - this video provides an overview to the emotional feel and sound of a wedding ceremony with the Gyros String Quartet. While nothing can quite replace listening to the quartet live, we hope this brief sampler will give you an idea of the overall experience.
