Music played before the official start of the ceremony as your guests arrive and are seated--usually 20-30 minutes. I suggest choosing 8-10 songs for prelude. (This includes extra just in case!)
wedding ceremony music:
Entrance of the wedding/bridal party. This may include important family members (grandparents, parents, etc.), bridesmaids, groomsmen, attendants, flower people, the ring bearer, etc. "Canon in D" is a classic choice.
Entrance of the bride (or groom/marrier). This used to always be Wagner's Wedding March, but currently trending favorites are "Can't Help Falling in Love," "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran, and "Lover" by Taylor Swift.
- Optional--Music during the ceremony: Background music during a candle-lighting ceremony, ring warming ceremony, etc.
The following selections are harp wedding songs already in my repertoire, but your imagination is the only limit to what you choose! Is your song not on this list? Send me a text at 702-575-2793 or use my Contact Form. You might be surprised what I can play on the harp!

Kristie was THE BEST addition to my wedding. All my guests absolutely LOVED her and only had good things to say. Her + the Red Spring Boardwalk backdrop is a perfect match. Kristie also had great communication skills and was willing to work with me on songs I requested! I am so grateful she played at my wedding and I highly recommend her to anyone!
Kristie was THE BEST addition to my wedding"
- Brittany B.
I always dreamed of having a harp at my wedding ceremony and Kristie brought this dream to life. A harp has always been such a magical instrument to me. I was so excited to have this magical experience at my wedding. Kristie is extremely professional and talented. She was open to playing any songs that I suggested. Her music abilities are so beautiful and I cannot recommend this enough for any event that you might be planning. I want to plan another event just so I can have her back! Thank you a million times over!
Dream come true!”
- Bianka D.
Wow! Kristie was the most amazing to work with! She was so willing to learn a special song that meant a lot to us, and kept us involved throughout the entire process. We couldn’t believe how attentive and informative she was, truly the perfect addition to our day. We received countless compliments from friends and family about her and her performance. Absolutely amazing! Would recommend to any couple looking to class up their ceremony! Endless thanks! So grateful she was a part of our special day.
