    LIC Night Skyline 5.3.2013

    What a beautiful venue! We have played here several times now, and it never disappoints. How could it, with that view!!! I even managed to snap a skyline pic on our way out in the evening.

    As far as the ceremony, we debuted another custom arrangement, this time of a Mumford & Sons song, ‘Lovers’ Eyes’. It was a perfect song, very fitting for the processional before the bride walked to ‘Falling Slowly’. Another first-time tune for Penguin was the recessional, which was Gershwin’s ‘Our Love is Here to Stay’.

    For the cocktail hour, we kept the jazz vibe going and played several swinging jazz numbers, some Bossa, and generally just kept the party going. Check out the pics to see the great views of the Skyline to see why Water’s Edge is a no-brainer for a beautiful setting within the city.

    Wedding Ceremony Music at Water’s Edge

    Friday, March 30th, 2012

    The Water’s Edge is one of the premier wedding venues located in Long Island City. Where is Long Island City? Just in case you don’t know, it is in Queens. Whenever I go there I think I am going somewhere far into Long Island, but in fact it overlooks the Manhattan skyline as you can see in the pictures. I loved the bright colors for this ceremony!  The songs for this ceremony were:

    Bridal Entrance: Falling Slowly from Once
    Recessional: Good Life by OneRepublic

    Good Life was a new one for us and we are definitely going to add it to our regular repertoire!
