Although most of my weddings are for the harp as a solo instrument, I love it when I get to collaborate with my professional musician colleagues! This ceremony featured a trio of harp, violin, and cello. We set up on the porch of The Larimore mansion. If it started to rain, the music could keep playing without interruption!
For the prelude, we played the couple’s requests of “Unchained Melody,” “Perfect,” “Fields of Gold,” “Marry Me,” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” The wedding party came out of the mansion and down the aisle to Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
The bride arrived in a horse-drawn carriage, which circled the drive around where the guests were seated as we played “A Thousand Years” from Twilight: Breaking Dawn. For her walk down the aisle, the bride chose Pachelbel’s “Canon in D.”
The ceremony concluded with the Beatles’ hit “Here Comes the Sun,” followed by other up-tempo popular songs, including “Happy Together” and “I’m Yours.”
With a harp alone or in an ensemble with other instruments, I can work with you to create the perfect soundtrack for your wedding day! Duets, trios, quartets, and larger chamber groups may include violin, viola, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, piano, guitar, trumpet, steel drums, marimba, or even multiple harps!
