Once Upon A Time... Storybook Love

Here is another string quartet arrangement that started as a special request for this weekend’s ceremony at Texas Discovery Gardens in Fairpark: “Once Upon A Time... Storybook Love” from the 1987 Rob Reiner film “The Princess Bride”, composed by Mark Knopfler.


Since long time friend and amazing guitarist Chris Carrington is also on the job this time, it seemed strangely fortuitous that the track features guitar with orchestra.


Here is the original from “The Princess Bride”:

Paige & Travis at Watermark Community Church

Who would have thought that “Concerning Hobbits” would make for a good bridesmaids’ processional?

Here's the original from “The Fellowship of the Ring”:
