The couple asked Jeff to perform a piece called “Love Dreams” on acoustic guitar for Trina’s walk down the aisle. The song was written many years ago by John’s grandfather; in order to pull this off, John had to sneak the sheet music from his mother, then have a friend learn it and record it on Youtube for Jeff…all while keeping the big secret. No easy feat!
John made special mixes of “Paradise City” by Guns ‘N Roses for the bridal party’s introduction and “Hot For Teacher” by Van Halen. (Since Trina is a beautiful teacher, it seemed the obvious choice.) More surprising, after the newlyweds were announced, John pulled an apple from his pocket and with a flourish, offered it to his lovely bride.
They wrote romantic love letters for each other and John’s made mention of the first Metallica concert they attended together. Well, we just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to sneak in some of John’s favorite band, so we played a few bars of “Master of Puppets.” ROCK ON!
THE DETAILS: The bridesmaids wore beautiful teal dresses and carried pink and white bouquets. Since John is a classic Oldsmobile collector, each table was named after a different model. Guests received CD favors with a picture of the groom’s Olds on the front, all displayed beside a license plate, “Trina and John Just Married” and the lyrics to “In My Merry Oldsmobile.”
The personal touches were amazing, the love was undeniable. Trina and John, thanks so much for letting us be a part of it!
