In his obliviousness, because he doesn't realize what a catch he is, he missed all the signs. It took some pushing from our good friend who is also an incredible trumpet player, the now minister, Seth Bailey (i can't find a website or video of Seth performing solo so here is a link to a band he's in Milkbread) for him to see it.
Our courting began around April of 2014 and quickly escalated. Neither of us ever wanted to get married but, here we are. Our wedding was on March 21. A nice little house concert/wedding/party at his sister's house in Las Vegas. Seth married us and played "Born to Beat Wild" by Nebojsa Zivkovic with Daryl as the ceremony opener.
We wrote our own vows for each other to agree to. These vows were a surprise that no one else had heard, including each other, until the ceremony. The video below is a short clip from the wedding including our vows.
We have a nice little thing going here and are looking forward to starting a duo project and seeing where that takes us. We are currently reworking "The Candle" by Stephen Feigenbaum, we originally premiered it as a quartet in October but will be performing a duo version soon. We are also in collaboration with Brendon Randall-Myers on a duo tenor sax and drum set version of his death metal bass clarinet work "Nausea." And we will be commissioning Ken Steen (aka UTG) for a duo this year as well!
