Two Weddings in Oregon

I'm hearing good things from familiy and friends about my cello solo wedding performances in Oregon these past couple of weekends. Thank you for the compliments, everybody. --Dave

Congratulations, Tim and Lori! You are a beautiful couple and your collective happiness is infectious. The two of you just seem to lift the spirits of everyone around you. It was my pleasure to play for your wedding (August 26, 2006 in Sandy, Oregon), not just because you're family, but because it was fun. For this wedding, I really emphasized my Bach and Beatles, with a "Wapato" variant of "Buffalo Gals" thrown in by request, along with standard wedding service pieces. The reception was a blast, too, and that place looks better than it has in a lot of years.

Adam and Joy, your wedding was just beautiful! The setting was gorgeous, with that shade-giving white gazebo and Mt. Hood in the background. I was glad to be a part of it (September 2, 2006 just East of Sandy). After playing a mixture of songs as the guests were seated, I played Straus' Emperor Waltz, followed by Pachelbel's Canon in D per request for the processional, with the rest being pretty standard. The reception was beautiful too; I especially enjoyed having time on the water in that paddleboat with my daughter. I truly wish you both all the best. I was happy to be part of it.
