Happy Spring!

With daylight savings last week and the official start of spring tomorrow, I wanted to post some pictures of some bright green and light pink weddings--a favorite color combination of mine.  Our busiest wedding season at Chesapeake Strings begins in April and we are looking forward to seeing spring colors and providing outdoor music in warmer weather!
