Kelsey and Nathan were married at a friend’s home in Port Huron, Michigan, right on the shores of Lake Huron. They could not have asked for a more beautiful setting, and had perfect weather, too! The tent kept the guests comfortably out of the sun (and would have been very useful if the weather hadn’t cooperated), but the backdrop of the waves and sailboats passing by reminded us that we were still close to the beach!
Guests were brought to the ceremony site on chartered buses. As they arrived, I played the bride’s special requests of “Stand by Me,” “Music of the Night” from Phantom of the Opera, and “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen (one of my personal favorites!), then filled in with other similar pieces until it was time for the wedding to begin.
The grandparents and parents were seated to “What a Wonderful World,” and the bridesmaids and ring bearers followed to “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King. Kelsey chose Sting’s “Fields of Gold” for her processional music.
The ceremony concluded with the recessional “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles. I continued playing until all of the guests had made their way back to the buses and were headed off to the reception.
In Port Huron and throughout Eastern Michigan, I love providing harp music for couples who want something elegant and romantic added to their wedding plans! Visit my website – Port Huron Wedding Harpist – and contact me for availability and a quote.
