East Tennessee Harpist | Johnson City Wedding

Katie and David were married at the Carnegie Hotel in Johnson City, Tennessee. The wedding featured an Art Deco-inspired styling, with black, gold, silver, and white colors in the luxurious venue. I provided harp music for the ballroom ceremony as well as the cocktail hour in the hotel’s lobby.

Guests were definitely “wowed” by the set-up and hearing harp music as they entered. You know you’ve made the right choice for wedding music when even your bridesmaids are impressed! Prelude music for guest arrival included both popular love songs and familiar classical pieces.

The families of the bride and groom were seated to “How Beautiful” by Twila Paris. The groom and the couple’s daughter, along with the wedding party, came down the aisle to Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.” Katie’s own processional music was the Elvis hit “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

When the ceremony concluded with the couple’s presentation, the DJ played their recessional. After a couple of pieces for the postlude, I relocated the harp to the lobby to play for the cocktail hour.

As the party started, the bride and groom requested that I play popular songs from the 2000s through the present day. Some of these included:

  • All is Said and Done by Beyonce
  • Shallow by Lady Gaga
  • Chandelier by Sia
  • Havana by Camila Cabello
  • Better Together by Jack Johnson
  • Stay with Me by Sam Smith

Guests love hearing songs they recognize on the harp! A particularly special moment was when the flower girl (the couple’s daughter) caught sight of the harp, and had to come over and see it up close. A quick impromptu lesson, and she plucked a few strings herself!
