James Fishwick

James Weston Fishwick is an Episcopalian and all around stand up guy. This is a relief to his parents (a minister and school principal, respectively) because when he started getting tattoos and dying his hair blue, they got a little worried. He has since cleaned up his act (sort of). James knows an awful lot about music, and until recently, it was not a good idea to discuss this topic with him. James’s other interests and hobbies include choir, ESL tutoring, yoga, and cooking. He also apparently knows how to do some stuff with the internet.

So we are down to the end of days; the countdown to the 19th is just… well, you can see the countdown. We are planning away and should have everything ready to go here soon (cross your fingers). The one piece of wedding “wisdom” I have been dispensing is along the lines of “the planning [...]

New bridal processional

We had the pleasure to meet with our organist Ginny yesterday for one final romp through our wedding selections… we decided to go with another piece for Steph’s entry: “Cantilena” by Josef Rheinberger. It’s a movement from his Sonata in D minor, op. 148 no. 11. A beautiful German romantic melody, I think it avoids [...]
