A hot weekend, but the Benjamin and Faviola’s wedding continued outside! We were all grateful for plentiful shade and an occasional breeze. The ceremony took place on the grounds of the Monte Bello Estate (formerly known as the Narnia Estate) in Lemont, Illinois.
The ceremony was officiated by the same woman who performed the New Year’s Eve wedding I played for last December. This time, however, the entire service was conducted in Spanish. No, I don’t speak Spanish, but I know enough Italian to be able to figure some things out and follow along! The wedding party came down the aisle to “Pour toi mon amour” from Braveheart.
Faviola’s processional was the traditional “Bridal Chorus” by Richard Wagner. At the conclusion of the ceremony, I played “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the recessional, as everyone exited and headed for the cocktail hour and dinner at the mansion.
I play for weddings, indoors and out, all over the greater Chicago area. Couples choose their own ceremony music, and it can be traditional, something totally different, or a mix!
Your wedding music should be a reflection of your tastes as a couple, the style of your wedding, and your vision for the day. The harp is wonderfully adaptable, and can provide all of the music for your ceremony, from classical to rock to jazz.
