Nancy (violin) and Gerard (cello), two of Dream City Music's professional musicians, added so much romance and elegance to the intimate wedding I officiated at Lake Geneva Inn. They played traditional wedding favorites, such as Cannon in D and favorite contemporary love songs as well. I hope to work with them again soon!
