Styled Shoots have been such a great outlet for vendors to have a creative outlet during this pandemic as they fit all of the elements we have come to look for in 2020

-- outdoors
-- small number of people
-- socially distantanced

I love taking part in styled shoots. They provide an outlet to come together with other artists and create a masterpiece all while in a more laid-back, lower-stress setting than what one is used to during a wedding or event. There are more opportunities to get to know the other vendors and photographers and you walk away with this sense of accomplishment in getting to truly appreciate the full impact of the final product. Its also super cool to see the way different photographers are able to capture their unique perspective behind the lense!

And of course, who doesn't love getting new publicity photos ,-)?

A huge shout out to the AMAZING @godfreysweddings for the design and planning.

Thank you to @arakawalker
For this shot.

Proof that you can still have your dream wedding even in the midst of a pandemic. This sweet couple found their initial plans compromised by COVID-19 so they opted to turn a family home into the perfect backdrop for their Sunday nuptials.

Danielle with @c_and_j_catering was the coordinator who brought all of the details together and those lovely florals that you see were designed and arranged by none other than the talented mother of the groom (who by the way looked stunning) @divinefloralsbysusan .

Maggie opted to avoid any classical music as she wanted a more modern vibe. Our custom music profiles allow clients to choose profile(s) that best fit their vision. Our Music Planning Sessions put clients in control of choosing select highlight pieces for those key, memorable moments.

Prelude included these titles and more:

-All of Me by John Legend
-A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
-Flightless Bird by Iron and Wine
-A River Flows In You by Yiruma
-Say You Won't Let Go by James Arthur

Ceremony Highlights:

GRAND PROCESSIONAL
Perfect by Ed Sheeran

BRIDAL ENTRANCE
Can't Help Falling In Love

FAMILY PRAYER
From The Ground Up by Dan & Shay

With the Premium Package, Maggie had 2 hours of coverage so that the live music continued into Cocktail Hour.

COCKTAIL HOUR SELECTIONS INCLUDED:

-Shape of You by Ed Sheeran
-Broken Road by Rascall Flatts
-Moon River
-Somewhere Over The Rainbow
-Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Cailat
-Marry You by Bruno Mars
-Shallow by Lady Gaga

First wedding with all the autumn feels (yes, Temps in the 60s was a welcome change from heat and humidity).

Lindsey and Marc chose a duo ensemble for their ceremony. Violin 🎻 led with melodic lines frequently allowing tbe harp to elaborate upon the harmonies and accompaniments.

The bride chose to combine our Classical Romantic, Popular & Soundtrack profiles from which her prelude was hand selected by our Creative Director. For her Ceremony Highlights, she chose the following:

-Grand Processional: The Reason by Callum Scott

-Bride Entrance: Can't Help Falling In Love

-Recessional: All of Me by John Legend

Choosing seasoned professionals to oversee your live music isn't just about engaging talented musicians to show up and perform on your wedding day. It is so much more. . . Many don't realize the immense amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure that the clients musical vision is achieved.

Here at Harp & Soul we pride ourselves in providing our expertise and professionalism every step of the way. We get to know our clients, their vision, their likes and dislikes. We encourage each couple to participate in a Music Planning Session to finalize the selections most important to them and how the music fits in to the day of logistics. All of these preparations allow our couples to rest at ease as their wedding day approaches.

Today we are trading in last weeks' torrential downpour for cooler northeast weather. . .

So while I sit on the tarmac awaiting takeoff, I reminisce on Holly and Peter's beautiful outdoor nuptials in Cleveland, GA last Saturday.

I can't stop thinking about the amazing vendor team that literally made sure the show went on even has many of them got soaked by the rain. And of course the real MVPs were the bride and groom who smiled and laughed through the curtain of rain as they got through about half of the ceremony before the officiant made the call to quickly transition to the covered area. This vendor team was on point every step of the way and seamlessly transitioned despite all of the uncertainty. Many a wedding would have ended in chaos but @briannemcmullanevents and her team didn't let that happen. They handled every moment with true poise and professionalism.

Looking for an excellent photographer, look no further . . .

It’s not everyday that your work gets featured in print and I am counting my blessings!

This wedding was an absolute dream come true for me. In a literal sense, I felt like I was actually sleep-walking come cake cutting at 9PM after I had been awake since 5AM!
🥂
In those 22 hours of prep to bedtime, I got to experience the blending of two beautiful cultures, vibrant colors, and emotions that made my heart soar.
🥰
I will never ever forget that day and what it meant for me and my career. Thank you to the incredible vendor team for bringing your best to the floor. Thank you, Sara, for being the best team member I could have asked for that day, and guiding me through the insanity that is shooting a 14 hour shift. Last but not least, thank you to Ray and Nirali for trusting me with your incredibly beautiful story. I’m so glad @theknot shared it with the world.

The Reason by Callum Scott is a lovely romantic melody from thr Pop Music genre that works well in several different areas of the wedding celebration including Prelude, Processionals and Recessional as well as Cocktail Hour

#thereasoncallumscott

09/10/2020

The first time I heard this piece it evoked so many emotions. I fell in love and added it to my repertoire after I featured it during my own wedding ceremony as the Grand Processional.

The Grand Processional is the 2nd most important entrance piece next to the Bridal Entrance. This piece ushers in the entrance of the officiant, groom, parents, and bridal party leading up to and building anticipation to the bride's Grand Entrance. 👰

A Song🎵 from A Secret Garden is so versatile that it works well positioned in any of the various stages of the Wedding Ceremony and celebration. It gives off all the romantic vibes while eliciting emotion . For those looking to change things upna bit with music selection, I highly recommend this option. Add cello , violin 🎻 or both to fill out the sound even more.

Also, fun fact I was in my last trimester of pregnancy when I filmed this at the auspicious Union League of Philadelphia. Little did I know that it would be the last gig prior to having my son, Gideon, and the last wedding pre-COVID. It was also my last trip to Philly pre-COVID and pre-baby. It is so good to be able to travel again (even if limited) and share my music with my clients even if it looks very different these days.

A little Moon River from this intimate wedding over the weekend. Julee's wedding had all the "Father of the Bride" feels as she tied the knot her family home in West Chester, PA. The weather was perfect and bride was beaming.

Just another example of how the pandemic affected initial plans. Yes, even resulted in a rescheduled date and change of venue, but in the end it was a beautiful success and just what it was meant to be as this lovely couple vowed their love to one another.

Live harp music or harp and small ensemble sets the atmosphere and is extremely versatile. Now more than ever wedding celebrations are scaling back and moving outdoors in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines, but live music is one of the areas clients are finding room to splurge on. This is one area where you want to get it right as the music sets the mood.

Indoor wedding in August with socially distanced seating was a welcome change to playing outdoors in extreme heat.

Kristie & Shawn tied the knot yesterday inside this newly renovated space. It was such a beautiful, sweet and intimate ceremony surrounded by their closest family 👪

I'm really enjoying these micro weddings 💒
