Another Thanksgiving weekend wedding! This time a harp and violin duet at the beautiful Hunt Phelan Mansion in Memphis, Tennessee.
Guests arrived through the front doors of the mansion, to the sounds of solo violin. As they made their way to the heated courtyard tent where the ceremony was taking place, they were greeted with harp music. We came together a few minutes before the ceremony began, and continued the prelude with a couple of harp & violin duets.
The families of the bride and groom were seated to “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by Bach. “Canon in D” was the wedding party processional, and the bride came down the aisle to the traditional Wagner “Bridal Chorus.”
The recessional was also traditional ~ “Wedding March” by Mendelssohn. We played a few more harp and violin duets as the guests headed to the cocktail hour inside, including Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.”
As a solo harpist or in an ensemble of any size or instrumentation, I love working with couples to create an elegant musical experience on their wedding day! The harp and violin duet is the most popular combination, but I also work with flautists, cellists, guitarists, pianists, singers, and more.
