Weddings & Wedding Packages

The harp is simply the perfect instrument to accompany a wedding. It creates the ultimate ambiance of romance. I am privileged to have been invited to participate in the weddings and celebrations of hundreds of couples. I would be most honored to be a part of yours. Consider my services for your:

  • Wedding Ceremony
  • Cocktail Hour/Reception
  • Engagement Party
  • Wedding Shower
  • Rehearsal Dinner

I always strive to make each couples’ experience and musical program unique and true to their personalities. My wedding package includes a private consultation that will give you the opportunity to hear the harp firsthand. In the case of destination weddings, this consultation can be done via Skype or FaceTime. Together we will discuss the vision for your wedding and your musical preferences and options. Traditional couples will delight in hearing time-honored wedding songs made even more lovely by the delicate sound of the harp. Those who prefer contemporary music will have my vast and ever-expanding repertoire of modern hits, classic rock, alternative, and vintage standards from which to choose. I always relish the opportunity to learn new music, so special requests are welcomed!

Wedding Ceremonies

A typical wedding ceremony includes 30 minutes of prelude music played to set the mood as guests arrive, all processional music required for the wedding party, the recessional (exit song), and a short postlude as guests depart the ceremony space. There may also be music throughout the service as well, such as during the lighting of a unity candle or sand ceremony. The couple may also request a special song to be played that is important to them or that evokes the memory of those that cannot be with them on their special day.

Beach Weddings

In our beautiful state of Florida, beach weddings are a popular choice for both local and destination couples alike. I am happy to provide you with ceremony music for your beach wedding with a few restrictions.

The Lever Harp:

For most events I perform on my Concert Grand Pedal Harp. However, the complicated inner workings of this harp are particularly susceptible to the damaging effects of the sand and salt on the beach. For beach weddings I perform on my Lever Harp. This harp has a closed base and a much simpler mechanism that is not as sensitive to the elements. My Lever Harp has a lovely sound, slightly more Celtic in nature, and slightly softer than my Pedal Harp, but with plenty of tone and volume to make an impact on your beach wedding ceremony.

Song Options:

Not all of my repertoire is available for beach weddings due to the fact that the Lever harp is smaller and limited in range. I have provided a separate beach repertoire list for your convenience with plenty of traditional and modern songs from which to choose.

  • Beach wedding ceremonies start at $350.
  • All wedding services listed above are included
  • All additional charges listed above may apply
  • 20% deposit required
