"My husband, Jay and I, would like to thank you greatly for playing your beautiful music at our wedding ceremony at the Marine's Memorial Club. I knew I made the right choice when I heard your wonderful harp music at your studio. I've received many compliments about your music from many friends and relatives. You have been a delight to work with."
Julia C., San Francisco, CA

Music is a defining element to any celebration, and the harp is a versatile instrument that is ideal for a ceremony and will truly make your celebration beautiful and memorable!

THE PRELUDE:
This is music performed for about 20 to 30 minutes while people are gathering for the ceremony. Generally classical or sacred music is performed, for example: "Sheep May Safely Graze" by Bach or "Hornpipe" by Purcell. Popular romantic pieces work well also, for example: "All I Ask of You" by Andrew Lloyd Webber or "Only Time" by Enya.. If you are printing a program it is not necessary to list each song in the prelude.

THE PROCESSIONAL:
This is when the bridal party enters. Often one song is chosen for the bridal party and another for the bride. This is something we will discuss when we plan the ceremony. The following pieces work well:

"The Prince of Denmark's March" by Jeremiah Clarke
"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" by Johann Sebastian Bach
"Canon in D" by Johann Pachelbel
"Air" from Water Music by George Frederic Handel
"The Bridal March" by Richard Wagner (this is just when the bride enters)

“Thank you so much for playing your harp at our wedding. It made our ceremony so special, our guests absolutely loved hearing you play. Thank you also for taking time to meet with us in July. Take care and thank you again.”
Craig and Kimberlee
