We had David on board to play at our wedding reception this past weekend, a long journey from California to Wallowa County in Oregon. We were delighted to have him! David also played at our wedding ceremony, something we had not originally planned on, but decided on doing once he suggested attending and playing there also. We are so glad he made that suggestion! He played a beautiful tune there, and I so wish I had a recording of that moment! We didn't have any space for dancing at our reception venue (on purpose, really) and it was a lot of fun to see David entertaining our guests through the night by strolling about and engaging with them. I appreciated his gentle, patient demeanor even through the chaos just prior to the reception going 'live'. He took care of himself and got a feel for the event at different stages. He played the violin and his exceedingly beautiful mandolin, educating guests on the history of the music and instruments. I would heartily recommend him to anyone in need of a fiddler! Thank you David Rainwater for the unforgettable memories.
