Violinist was Andrea Tarquini, and cellist was Kendred Tillotson. Vocal soloist Jeannette Thompson Gardere performed “Ave Maria” with accompaniment by Jennifer Woodrow.
A cocktail reception and passed hors d’oeuvres followed the ceremony on the spacious residence lawn.
The wedding festivities then moved to the front lawn inside a wedding tent, where an elegant plated dinner was served and dancing ensued. The after-dinner dance celebration included a surprise vocal duet performance by the bride’s sister, Tisha McCoy, and one of her brothers, Curt Towne, performing the song “Lucky” by Jason Mraz featuring Colbie Caillat.
Traian and Charlotte shared their first dance to the song “Between the Raindrops” by Lifehouse featuring Natasha Bedingfield, which was fitting given the earlier rainfall at the commencement of their ceremony.
