The Links at Union Vale Wedding – Deirdre & Brendon

For Deirdre and Brendon’s early May wedding, the weather was warm and beautiful which we were very thankful for! The setting was The Links at Union Vale, one of the lower Hudson Valley’s premier wedding venues. There are beautiful views of rolling hills and amazing sunsets over the 18 hole golf course.

Deirdre’s ceremony was outdoors so I set up my digital piano on the outdoor patio. After playing some preludes for the guests arrival, the bridal party made their entrance to Bach’s Prelude in C Major and Deirdre walked down the aisle to Bach’s Air on a G String accompanied by her Father. The postlude was a nice non-traditional choice: Dream a Little Dream of Me which I played in a mid-tempo swing style.

After the ceremony I continued to play upbeat solo jazz piano for cocktails outside on the patio. The reception followed and everyone was ready to party–the dance floor was packed all night! For dancing, Deirdre asked for a mix of classic dance songs from Motown to contemporary with some Country and Rock for good measure. It was a blast!
