Tranquility was the first word in our thoughts as we drove up to play for this Soulful Prairies wedding. This gorgeous venue, just outside of Woodstock, Illinois, is beauty defined in all of its natural splendor.
Soulful Prairies Wedding
Our bride and groom, Meaghan and Sean, attended one of our performances at a New Orleans wedding two years earlier. So imagine their surprise when they searched for us and found that we were right in their own backyard. Just less than 15 minutes from them, in fact. A lot of business comes from people who have already seen us perform and want the same for their big day. Because of this, we feel quite humbled but also reassured that we are definitely doing the right thing.
As stated above, Soulful Prairies is one of the most tranquil, peaceful settings at which we have played. Their commitment to conservation and natural living is evident everywhere one looks. We found it to be a wonderful and unique setting for a wedding and reception. For example, the wedding was in a loft above a horse stable. Literally, we were playing with horses underneath us. That’s a first for Felix! This beautiful 80 plus acre property has so much to offer from beehives, gardens, and peaceful retirement for horses. Please click here to find out more about them. It is so much more than just a venue.
Country Loving Cowboys
Yes, we were playing for a bunch of ropers. We have to say that we now know what great fun cowboys (and girls) are to perform for. What a great group of family and friends. Meaghan and Sean are very lucky. Of course, we had to play a ton of country songs. We had requests for the old style country such as Merle Haggard’s If We Never Meet Again and Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire. And no country show is complete without Garth Brook’s I Got Friends in Low Places. Also, we had a ton of requests for the latest country singers such as Luke Bryant and Carrie Underwood. It was definitely one down home country loving wedding. And we couldn’t have had a better time.
Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos loved everything about this Soulful Prairies wedding. The gorgeous property, the fun family and friends, and the great music requests all worked together in creating the most wonderful day.
