Jazz bassist Christian McBride married vocalist Melissa Walker yesterday at the Glen Ridge Congregational Church. On a day where the temperature reached near 100-degrees, a very classy, beautifully understated wedding took place. It was a wonderful ceremony with mostly family in attendance. Ron Blake and Terreon Gully of the Christian McBride Band stood as McBride's groomsmen, and Walker's bridesmaids included her sister, Leslie Naamon, Grace-Ann Blake and Maria Perez-Brown. Musicians in attendance included Pat Metheny, Jack DeJohnette, Joshua Redman, John Clayton, Oliver Lake, Steve Wilson (who also performed during the ceremony) and Norman Simmons.
