The beautiful Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, near Forest Park in St. Louis, was the venue chosen for Olivia and Kolton’s Nuptial Mass. As in all Catholic churches, the music for the service is required to be classical or sacred. If you are getting married in a church, be sure to check with your priest/pastor or church coordinator to confirm the musical guidelines specific to your house of worship.
As guests took their seats in the sanctuary, I played classical harp solos and sacred compositions. When the families were seated and the wedding party came down the aisle, the music chosen was the hymn “For the Beauty of the Earth.”
Olivia entered to the Debussy piece “Clair de Lune.” Music during the service included Schubert’s “Ave Maria” and “Prayer of St. Francis (Make Me a Channel of Your Peace).” The recessional to conclude the ceremony was another hymn, “How Can I Keep from Singing.”
As guests departed for the reception, I continued classical harp music for the postlude. I play for weddings of all faiths in St. Louis and throughout Missouri and Illinois, and am happy to guide you through the process of selecting music that is both appropriate for your venue and meaningful to you.
