If you’ve never had the chance to visit the Baker Street Station in Fort Wayne, go! It is a beautifully restored train depot that not only houses offices, but also opens up the grand lobby for weddings and other private events. I was the harpist for a wedding there last Sunday, and it is stunning!
I was booked for this wedding only a couple of weeks in advance, but the mother of the bride and I were able to get all of the wedding music planned quickly by email. Although prime Saturdays fill up six months to a year in advance, I occasionally have availability for last-minute bookings on Fridays, Sundays, and throughout the week. It’s never too late to contact me about providing your wedding music!
The room was decorated for the reception with teal and purple, and most of the guests sat at the dining tables for the ceremony. Special chairs were reserved up close for the families. The two bridesmaids entered to “Fields of Gold,” followed by the bride’s entrance to “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.” As the couple lit the unity candle, the hymn “O Perfect Love” played. The recessional concluding the ceremony and sending the guests to the cocktail hour was “Trumpet Tune.”
As a Fort Wayne harpist, I’ve played for weddings and other events throughout the city, including at Foster Park’s Bridal Glen, Lakeside Rose Garden, the Allen County Courthouse, and the Embassy Theatre.
