Halloween Wedding ~ Kansas City Harpist

This was my second year in a row playing for a wedding on Halloween! Each couple embraced the holiday in their own way, with this wedding at the Hotel Kansas City going for a witch-y but classy vibe. The dark florals and the woodwork in the hotel’s Tudor Ballroom set the stage for their ceremony, with the stained glass murals as their backdrop.

As guests arrived, I played some familiar classics, finishing with the Scottish folk song “Loch Lomond” and “Prelude” from Final Fantasy VII. The processional for the wedding party was “Ashokan Farewell” from the Ken Burns documentary The Civil War.

Desiree came down the aisle to “The Call” by the English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. Throughout the ceremony, they requested two pieces to be played lightly in the background – “Erev shel shoshanim” and “Dodon’s Sleep.”

For their recessional, they chose the main theme of Game of Thrones (“Song of Fire and Ice”). Wedding music doesn’t have to fit a certain mold – it should be music that is meaningful to the couple! Following the ceremony, I moved the harp up to the rooftop where cocktail hour was taking place.

With beautiful views over downtown Kansas City, guests could enjoy the fire pits, appetizers, drinks, and a harp music serenade! The music they chose for this time had a new age feel with some popular selections included, and some of the songs were “Lothlorien” by Enya, the Welsh folk song “By Kell’s Waters,” “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica, and “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
