Happy New Year, everyone! We’re so excited to share two pieces of happy news from our wonderful studio pianist!
Congratulations to Evelyn for officially becoming Dr. Lam! Evelyn completed her D.M.A. in Piano Performance and Literature at the Eastman School of Music this fall. Congratulations, Dr. Lam!
On New Year’s Eve, Evelyn married her fiancé, Nathan, at the St. Michael’s Lutheran Church in Winchester, TX! Here’s the lovely story in Evelyn’s own words:
“Last week was one of the wildest weeks I’ve ever had, but I would relive it all in a heartbeat. Two days after Nathan proposed on Christmas, Nathan received some unexpected news that led us to completely change our initial plans of marrying in May.
With the love and help of Nathan’s parents, his cousins, and two of my very dear friends, we put together an intimate, simple, lovely reception at Nathan’s parents’ house. We made a delicious taco bar for the reception, with a cake for dessert.
The ceremony was sweet and simple, held at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church in Winchester, Texas — just down the street from Nathan’s parents’ house.
It was a beautiful, sunny, clear day. Jim Haley (Lauren’s father) walked me down the aisle, with the Glasgow Love Theme from Love Actually as the processional.
No fancy dress. No bridesmaids, groomsmen, or big, fancy reception — just us and a couple of friends and family.
We had a wonderful, wonderful time.
It took a village to make this special day happen, and we are extremely thankful.”
Best wishes and congratulations to Evelyn and Nathan!
