At your free consultation, Joyce will help you create a memorable life-enhancing event with all the beautiful trimmings!  You will choose music to weave a magic spell over each of the separate elements of the wedding ceremony and reception, binding them together in a "Heavenly Dream".

Below are general guidelines for choosing your wedding music:

We recommend that you ask about the church musical guidelines when you first meet with the pastor, priest or rabbi.  Outdoor wedding are usually more flexible and more informal.  Harp music can accommodate your needs for any of your choices, if they are tasteful and promote a sense of dignity in keeping with the occasion.

  • Choose music that reflects your own style and taste.  If you want a highly formal wedding, then you might choose classical literature.  Compositions by J.S. Bach, Handel and Vivaldi are all wedding favorites.
  • Wedding themes also suggest the kind of music you may choose, for example Renaissance music for a Medieval theme, or Celtic music for those of Irish decent, or the beautiful Jewish folksongs for Jewish weddings.
  • Remember the the music you choose is a gift to your guests that you personally provide for their enlightenment and their enjoyment.
