Date: August, 21

Location: Twilight Park, Haines Falls, NY

First Dance: God Only Knows, The Beach Boys

We met Hillary and Brian through Hillary’s parents Karen and Larry, who had seen us at the Greene County Council on the Arts annual Beaux Arts Ball at Hunter Mountain. They enjoyed getting down to Nite-Time at the event so much that they thought we would be a perfect fit for their daughter’s wedding in nearby Twilight Park.

Like many of our weddings this past summer, rain was in the forecast for the day, which threatened to put a damper (literally) on the beautiful outdoor ceremony setting. The morning started with heavy rains and cloudy skies, but the sun arrived, seemingly out of nowhere, just in time for the ceremony (the only portion of the event that was scheduled to be held outside). If I didn’t know any better, I would say we’re good luck when it comes to outdoor events, the rain holding off has been an ongoing theme of this year…

After the ceremony, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were served on the porch of the main cabin where the reception was to take place. Hillary and Brian opted for solo piano for the hour. It was a lovely back drop to the delicious apps, signature pink lemonade cocktails and breathtaking views…

Shortly after the cocktail hour ended, the rain returned, but it didn’t matter, because we were all safely inside for the reception, dinner and dancing. We got the dancing started with Hillary and Brian’s first dance God Only Knows by the Beach Boys, a unique choice on their part, and really a lot of fun for the band to perform (the vocal breakdown section at the end was a challenge we were all psyched to meet). After that we launched into a medley of horas and then we were off and running.

Hillary and her mom Karen, did an amazing job of decking the place out for the wedding. Hillary mentioned to her mother that she would love centerpieces of snapdragons (one of my favorite flowers) and white birch. Karen got to work and made the most beautiful centerpieces that she accented with succulents that the guests were invited to take home after the event. Mine are thriving by the way, thanks guys!

All in all it was another great wedding with a wonderful couple in an amazing setting. Hillary and Brian had a great time as did their parents, family and friends. The rain held off while we were all outside and once we moved indoors there was so much dancing and revelry that I don’t think anyone noticed the occasional showers outside!

Hillary sent Yves a note of thanks a couple of weeks ago, check out A Thank You from Hillary and Brian on our review page.


Hillary and Brian, our couple from August that got married in beautiful Twilight Park sent us this note of thanks…

Thank you, Yves.  We very much enjoyed having you play!  Everyone was dancing up a storm!  Brian and I agree that our wedding day was perfect.  Please feel free to use us as a reference.

We just got the disk of pictures and there are some great pictures of you and the rest of the band in action. Would you like me to forward some along?
When we get those pics, I’ll share…
