Northern Michigan Wedding Music | Castle Farms Ceremony & Reception

Back at the majestic Castle Farms for the second time this fall! This time, on the other side of the venue, and playing for both the outdoor ceremony and indoor cocktail hour.

My original set-up location was inside the turret that framed the ceremony space, but was moved to the back patio. Fortunately, every spot is beautiful at this venue!

As guests arrived, the prelude music included Enya’s “Only Time” and “Storybook Love” from The Princess Bride, as well as other classical pieces and contemporary love songs.

The families of the couple and the wedding party all came down the aisle to “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Tiffany’s bridal processional was “Tale as Old as Time” from Beauty and the Beast. Perfect for a castle wedding! As the bride and groom lit the unity candle, I played J.S. Bach’s “Arioso.”

For the recessional to conclude the ceremony, they chose “River Flows in You” by the South Korean composer and pianist Yiruma. After that, guests walked across the lane to the cocktail hour.

Harp music continued, including the special requests of “Everything I Do, I Do it for You,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Fairy Fountain” from The Legend of Zelda, “I’m Yours,” and “This Will Be an Everlasting Love.” Having harp music for both ceremony and cocktail hour provides musical continuity to the beginning of your wedding celebration, and gives you the opportunity to include even more of your favorite songs!
