The Graceful Glide
Walking down the aisle on your wedding day will create an everlasting visual memory for all who attend your wedding ceremony. It is a special moment in time that will be embedded in the minds of all your family and friends forever.
Choosing live music for your ceremony will lend an unforgettable atmosphere of style, romance and serenity to your wedding day. Whether you have the sounds of a beautiful classical guitar or the lovely sounds of the enchanting harp the music will create an ambiance of elegance at your ceremony.
One of the most important music pieces during the ceremony is the “Bride’s” processional. The music accompanies the Bride’s first walk up the aisle initiating the height of excitement, intrigue, sheer joy and delight as the beautiful bride in all her crowning glory, gown and gloves makes her stunning, unforgettable entrance during the first fragments of time.
Guests enjoy an emotional and breathtaking moment… as you glide gracefully to the music taking each step, with every beat of your heart, all your joy and aspirations carried to the alter as you transform from a maiden to an exquisite young women. Harpist Kim Michele
