I invite couples to bring props to their engagement sessions. Steve and Kar-mun brought the biggest one so far, a cello.
During the wedding consultation, I had already heard that they were classical musicians on the side of their demanding careers, but when they mentioned that they will be performing during the wedding reception, I knew they weren’t just hobbyists. (Dan and I sang cheesy-may be, but true- “From this Moment on” at our wedding reception, and we weren’t about to embarrass our selves)
Now, a lot of people around here have orchestra in their history, but Steve is the executive director of a chamber orchestra: Camerata Notturna… ! impressive… Kar-mun plays concert piano, but she also could pull off a classical piece on the cello, too! Impressive, again.
We returned to the scene of the crime, where they first met in a chamber music class at Harvard, and dodged a rain storm. Thankfully, during finals season, the campus was calm, and no one seemed to mind a little cello prelude in front of the library.
Congratulations Kar-mun and Steve, looking forward to capturing your wedding day tomorrow!
