On a recent crisp and crystal clear Sausalito evening at Horizon’s restaurant (soon to return to its original name Trident after many years), I was taken by the postcard-perfect sparkling city view, the fabulous food, and a “Down Memory Lane” special appearance by the world famous Larry Vucovich Latin Jazz Quartet. The whole experience brought back sweet memories of one of my favorite wedding events at Sausalito Presbyterian Church.

The stunning dark haired bride is a jazz singer who works at Lucas Films; the groom, a fine jazz guitarist involved in the recording business. The church was packed with talented musicians and music lovers. Wedding ceremony music was performed by Larry Vucovich (father of the groom) on piano, and joined by stand up bass.

The celebration continued in the church’s Thomson Hall which had been turned into an elegant downstairs supper club with round tables, white napery, tall silver candelabras, and masses of red roses. Live dinner jazz accompanied a scrumptious meal. After champagne toasts, all enjoyed a concert by eight brilliant international jazz musicians, much serenading and dancing. It was a magical musical celebration not to be forgotten.
