For Friday lunch, Tim and Brenda, Audrey, the Susans, and I went to a restaurant and ice cream parlor named Zaharakos in downtown Columbus, IN. It is a unique place because it is also a museum of old fashioned soda fountains and mechanical music orchestrions.
When the Susans and Tim arrived, we were given a large booth in the back, but we still got to hear the Welte orchestrion play twice. I do not have a picture of the one that played, but it is on their website. The one pictured here, I took because I knew Emily would be interested in the violin featured in it. These orchestrions are played with the player piano type "rolls" with holes the air goes through.
These pre-wedding pictures are taken at Cummins Corporation headquarters in Columbus, IN where they have beautiful grounds (and street side parking! woohoo!) Of course, while the real photographers were using the beautiful backgrounds, I was snapping shots toward the street side parking!
