Flutist Brides

For those of you wondering what I did instead of blogging this weekend, this one's for you:

It's June; time for June brides and Muni Band. We had a rare convergence of the two this weekend when long time friend and Muni Band flutist Patti married oboist and sometime Muni Band sub Jonathan on Saturday.

You remember Saturday. It was really HOT.

Fortunately it was somewhat cooler inside the Church of the Transfiguration in Arcadia.

The reception was at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, a place that Patti, Jonathan, and Patti's son Aaron love to frequent.

Muni Band drummer Gordon put together a blazing jazz trio for the event (they were blazing hot from the sun in this picture!):

The tables were elegantly set:

Patti was radiant, and not just with the heat:

Jonathan and Patti:

Husband and wife:

The entire Muni Band flute section assembled for the occasion:

Sunday found fellow flutist Amy and me at the tree shaded Padua Hills Theatre in Claremont playing flute duets for the wedding of former flute student Janell and my financial advisor Josh.

Their parents, pastors all, performed the ceremony together.

Presenting the new Mr. and Mrs.!

May God bless their new life together!

That's what I did instead of blog this weekend.



Come join the new bride in the parks of Long Beach.

Tonight: Whaley Park
