The last time I played for a wedding at Ogden Gardens (the end of June), it was so hot! Fortunately for Amy and Jacob, the late summer actually cooled off! Their August 18th ceremony at the park’s gazebo was not only beautiful, but their guests were comfortable and able to just enjoy the day.
As guests arrived, they were greeted with harp music ranging from classical pieces to popular love songs. When the bridal party came down the aisle, I played the jazz standard “Autumn Leaves.” The bride’s entrance music was the Pachelbel “Canon in D” ~ a wedding classic! The short and sweet ceremony concluded with the presentation of the newly married couple, and everyone exited to “Winter” from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. We seemed to have a “seasonal” theme going, so I couldn’t resist throwing in “Spring” ~ also from The Four Seasons ~ during the postlude!
In Valparaiso and throughout Northwest Indiana, I am available as a professional harpist and wedding musician. From when guests begin to arrive, to when the last one leaves the ceremony site, you can thrill them by having live harp music at your wedding!
