Happy Wednesday everyone! We have had the strangest, most wonderful weather…RAIN! I know most people want some snow now that it is getting closer to Christmas but not me. Snow means shoveling and snow plowing. Snow means Ryan has to be up at 2 in the morning to go work on removing snow.
2 AM + Ryan = Very tired man!
Today on Wedding Wednesday I’d like to continue on with my wedding post from last week. Last week, we talked about the style of music we wanted. This week I’d like to tell you who’s going to help us with this.
I come from a very musical family. Specifically, my brother is AMAZING on the guitar. My dad plays a mean bass fiddle and piano. Mom and I like to sing and I can tickle the ivories a little too. This is fine but for my wedding day my family will have other responsibilities.
I wasn’t too concerned though because there are so many great musicians in our home town. Let’s start with this guy:
Please meet Denis. I have known Denis for probably about 10 years now. He has some MAD skills as the mechanic on the turf farm here. He is such a fun and sweet guy!
Denis is an AMAZING musician. His instrument of choice…The Fiddle.
Ryan has teased Denis now for a couple of years about playing at our wedding. Before we were engaged Denis would bug him about when he was going to ask me. In return Ryan would joke that at our wedding Denis had to play some Metallica on his fiddle in front of everyone!
Now, as pretty as the fiddle is Ryan and I decided that it would be nice to have another instrument.
Please meet Rolly. I have known Rolly all my life. As a little girl attending church and Sunday school I always remember Rolly playing an active roll at the church. He was always my favorite Sunday school teacher!
Anyone who actually knows Rolly would probably agree with me, he is one the nicest people, ever! He is a staple in our community. He lends a hand for almost all community and church events.
Rolly is an all around amazing musician. Between singing, banjo and guitar it’s hard to choose which one he excels at more. Ryan and I asked Rolly to play his guitar and sing for us on our wedding day.
Luckily, both Denis and Rolly both agreed with play for us on our special day. It means so much to me to have two people that I know and love be part of the wedding.
They are amazing musicians, co-workers and friends. I can’t wait to hear that guitar and fiddle play as I want down the aisle to my future husband.
