Mississippi Wedding Harpist ~ Ceremony at Old Waverly Golf Club

The spring weather just wouldn’t cooperate for Shelby and Bradley. Nevertheless, they had a beautiful wedding at the Old Waverly Golf Club outside of West Point, Mississippi! The ceremony was planned for the garden, but with rain pouring down they relocated to the front of the club underneath the portico. They were still outdoors, but everyone (and the harp!) stayed dry.

The florists were amazing with the change of plans. They worked tirelessly to re-set the ceremony decor and flowers so the couple could still have the lovely surroundings they planned. As guests gathered, I played their prelude song requests of “My Own True Love” from Gone with the Wind, “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and “Have I Told You Lately that I Love You.” Just for fun, I included “Rainbow Connection,” too!

The groom, officiant, and family were seated to “Prelude in C” by J.S. Bach. There was no wedding party, so the bride followed immediately to the traditional processional, Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus.”

While the couple lit a memory candle to honor the groom’s mother, I played one verse of “I Love How You Love Me.” Then when the ceremony concluded, Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” to send the couple back up the aisle and inside to their reception. As guests followed, I continued with other upbeat classical selections, including “Trumpet Voluntary” and “Trumpet Tune.”
