Ellen and Jordan were married in the treehouse at Southwind Park in Springfield. Just a short walk (or trolley ride) from Erin’s Pavilion, it’s a convenient and sheltered option for couples hosting their receptions there. The shade on a hot August day was appreciated by their guests and harpist alike!
As their families were seated, I played the Frankie Valli song “Can’t Take My Eyes off of You.” The wedding party came down the aisle to the traditional “Canon in D,” and Ellen chose Beyonce’s “Halo” for her processional.
The recessional was “Wedding March” by Mendelssohn to fit in with their “Midsummer Night’s Dream” theme, then transitioning to “All My Loving” by The Beatles and “Everything” by Michael Buble – their wedding song – as guests went through the receiving line.
I play for weddings all over Central Illinois – and beyond! Contact me about having a harpist provide the music for your wedding ceremony, reception, or rehearsal dinner by visiting my website: Central Illinois Wedding Music.
