The Custom Ceremony Package

Most American wedding ceremonies have six major parts, each with their own special requirements.

  1. The prelude
  2. The wedding party’s processional
  3. The bride’s processional
  4. The interlude (candle lighting/rose presentation/meditation)
  5. The recessional
  6. The postlude

As a Washington, D.C. area wedding musician, I have found that the harp makes the most elegant weddings that much more elegant. My wedding package includes an optional free consultation, a standard harp cartage fee, and beautiful harp music for every part of the ceremony needed. This includes a 20-minute prelude as guests are being seated beforehand and a 20-minute postlude after the wedding ceremony.

With my experience having performed for over 300 weddings, I have many resources available to customize the musical selections for your wedding ceremony. Also, additional instruments can play with the harp such as: flute, violin, viola, cello, oboe, or voice.
