This wedding, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, was held at this historic St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Indianapolis. Along with the harp, the church organist and cantor provided the music for the service.
I played harp preludes as guests entered the sanctuary and were seated. The family members of the bride and groom were seated to “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by J.S. Bach, and the wedding party processional was Pachelbel’s “Canon in D.” The organist played “Trumpet Voluntary” for the bride’s entrance.
During the wedding Mass, the cantor sang the liturgical music and the Schubert “Ave Maria” to a combination of piano and harp accompaniments. The organist played the recessional (“Hornpipe” from Handel’s Water Music) at the end of the service, and then I continued with postlude music as the guests exited.
I play for weddings in any venue, from churches to gardens to banquet halls. The elegance of the harp is at home in any setting! Visit my website ~ Indianapolis Wedding Harpist ~ to check my availability for your date and receive a quote.
