What a beautiful venue and a beautiful day! After the storm the evening before, we enjoyed the sunshine on Saturday. The wedding took place at Sunroom at the Brick in Frankfort, Ohio, with the ceremony on the lawn and the reception in the hall. Located not far from Chillicothe, it has small-town charm with the elegance of the city. A perfect mix!
As guests arrived, I played a selection of popular and classical pieces, including “Canon in D” and “Only Time” by Enya. There was no wedding party, and the bride chose “A Thousand Years” from Twilight for her processional.
The recessional was a more up-tempo rendition of Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.” That’s one of the wonderful things about having live music for your wedding – you can customize things like tempo, volume, and instrumentation to make a song you love fit perfectly with your plans!
We had a very sweet wedding crasher. She loved the harp, and even joined the bride and groom during the vows!
Once the guests had been dismissed, I moved the harp inside the banquet hall. During the dinner hour, I played popular love songs of many eras, from “Georgia on My Mind” to “My Heart Will Go On” to “When You Say Nothing at All.”
The harp adds a touch of elegance to any event, and is especially popular for wedding music. To find out more about including a harpist in your plans, please visit my website ~ Southern Ohio Harpist!
