A touch of elegance
Meg performed at our wedding on Nov. 30 at Journeyman Distillery. We are so grateful that she performed at our wedding. First, her instrument is beautiful and really added a touch of elegance in our rustic venue. Second, the music set the tone for our ceremony. We wanted to hear the theme from The Goonies for our recessional song. Well, Meg went above and beyond to learn how to play it - just for us. We requested that song because we got engaged in Cannon Beach, Oregon - the location of the final scene in that movie. It was so meaningful to hear that song as we made our way through the room for the first time as husband and wife.Sent on 12/14/2019
