Friday was perfect for an outdoor wedding! Joni & Kyle had their ceremony take place on the patio at Romer’s Catering in Celina, Ohio. Just a block away from Grand Lake, it was a peaceful and secluded setting.
The harp music began as guests started to arrive around 7:00 pm, and the ceremony began promptly at 7:30. For the entrance of the bridal party, I played “Andiam mio tesoro” (an anonymous Italian composition from the 16th century). The bride’s entrance music was the traditional Wagner “Bridal Chorus.” Joni also liked the piece “Canon in D,” so that was played a little faster than usual as a part of the postlude music.
Several of their guests commented on how much they enjoyed the harp music, including a grandmother who was looking forward to the day when she’ll play a duet with King David! One of the guests sitting nearby was a pianist, so he had lots of questions about how the harp works. I’m always happy to show the instrument to your guests. It’s not often that people get to see a harp up close!
Throughout Ohio, I am available to provide harp music for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Visit my website for more information:
