5 Reasons to hire a Professional Harpist for your Wedding:
If you are debating whether having live harp music at your wedding ceremony or just have a DJ play recorded music, I am here to tell you why you should hire a professional harpist today!
Here is how I typically approach weddings:
30 minutes before your start time, I’ll serenade your guests as they arrive with music we work together to pick. This gets them in the right frame of mind for your wedding, and prevents awkwardness and endless scrolling on TikTok before you walk down the aisle. It also makes for great photos!
Next, I’ll play your selected music for your wedding party’s procession down the aisle. One thing I can do that others can’t is I will time the music to fade out gently when the last person arrives at the altar. This way, you can get to the part of your wedding you're eagerly awaiting.
My favorite part comes next: the procession of the bride (or groom). Imagine walking down the aisle to the song you’ve been dreaming of performed live by our strings. It’s a beautiful moment you’ll never forget. After I fade my music gently (so you’re not waiting minutes to start), your officiant begins the proceedings.
About half of my couples choose to do a Unity Candle (or other Unity Ceremony), and I can play music during that so your guests don’t experience awkward silence.
You exchange vows and rings, and then your officiant pronounces you the newly married couple! I’ll help you get the party started with music as you walk back up the aisle (the Recessional), and I’ll keep playing after as your wedding party and guests follow.
If you choose to have me stay and play for cocktail hour, I’ll keep you and your guests entertained with your favorite music that shows off your taste and style. Guests love hearing songs they recognize played by harp - people say it’s just like Bridgerton!
