Bloomington Harpist ~ Wedding Ceremony at Evelyn Chapel

Jennifer and Kevin involved many of their family members in their wedding, but knew the responsibility for the majority of the wedding music was better left to a professional so their guests could more fully enjoy the ceremony without that worry! The service took place Illinois Wesleyan University’s Evelyn Chapel.

While guests arrived, the harp prelude included a variety of classical music and well-known love songs. They chose traditional music for the processionals – Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” for the wedding party and Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus (Here Comes the Bride)” for Jennifer’s walk down the aisle.

The bride’s step-father performed the ceremony, and her brother played a piece on the piano as the couple lit the unity candle.

For the recessional, they chose something more upbeat and popular – “All My Loving” by the Beatles. I continued the postlude music until the guests had exited the chapel, playing more contemporary pieces that people would recognize.
