West Lafayette Harpist ~ Wedding at Ross Camp

Samantha and Matt enjoyed a beautiful day for their outdoor wedding!  They set up a tent on the lawn at Ross Camp outside of West Lafayette, Indiana, and had their ceremony just outside of it in front of the pond.  Guests were able to just walk a few steps into the tent for the reception!

When we met a few weeks before the wedding, they had most of their music selected, but hearing it in person really made an impact!  They chose the Irish folk song "Down By the Salley Gardens" for the seating of families, followed by "Arioso" for the bridal party's entrance music.  The bride's processional was "Canon in D," and as the couple participated in the unity sand ceremony, I played the spiritual "Deep River." 

As the ceremony concluded, the newlyweds exited to "Fields of Gold" by Sting.  I continued to play an extended postlude as guests found their seats in the tent and the wedding party took formal pictures. 

The harp music selections for this ceremony were a nice variety!  You don't have to stick with just classical music; you can mix it up and include some of your favorite popular pieces along with the traditional wedding music.  If you'd like a harpist for your wedding, visit my website ~ West Lafayette Harpist ~ or call 1-877-HARP-578.
