Katherine & Michael at Four Seasons

The new year’s first big wedding took place in the Las Colinas Ballroom at the Four Seasons on January 17, 2015. From the start it was evident that music was particularly important to the bride and her mom, who had stumbled upon a charming version for violin, cello and piano of John Legend’s “All of Me”. An arrangement / transcription had to be prepared for string quartet with piano and then edited for length to cover the bridal processional and circling of the groom, while maintaining the original arc of the song. Additionally, after the seating of the grandmothers, Boi V Shalom (Con te partiro) - featuring soloist Goga - was used as an interlude.
