Using harp in your wedding
Harp music is appropriate for:

Harp in your wedding ceremony
Harp can provide all or some of the music for your wedding ceremony. Generally, traditional weddings provide these opportunities for harp music:
Preservice music - While guests are seated, harp music creates an atmosphere of beauty and warmth
Bridal party processional - Processional music for your bridesmaids, flower girls, ring bearers, etc.
Bridal processional - Processional music for the bride
Music during the ceremony - Harp can accompany unity rituals, liturgical elements such as responses to readings, accompany a singer, or provide other musical needs during the ceremony.
Recessional - Send-off music for the bride, groom and wedding party
Post-service music - Music to transition your guests to the next phase of your wedding celebration.
Listen to wedding music examples
Mark works with many of Chicago's best musicians, and can add a vocal soloist (male and female), violin, flute or other instrumentalist.
An outdoor wedding is a beautiful thing, and harp music outdoors is absolutely transcendent. Please keep in mind that the harp doesn't like direct sunlight or moisture. Here are the requirements for playing outdoors:
Flat, level surface, such as concrete, tile, wood, slate, etc.
An indoor alternative in case of rain or other inclement weather
Pray for good weather. I really like playing outside!
