Q: I'm getting married and I have no idea which music to pick for my ceremony. Can Emily help with song selections?
A: Yes, she is happy to. It helps if you can identify the mood/vibe/feeling you want for your wedding and from there Emily can give you song suggestions.
Q: What music is involved in a wedding ceremony?
A: Wedding ceremonies typically consist of the following, though you can tailor it to your particular needs:
1. ~10 songs (15-20 minutes) of prelude music while your guests arrive
2. 1 song while your bridesmaids/groomsmen come down the aisle
3. 1 processional song while the bride comes down the aisle
4. 1 recessional song while the new husband and wife walk back down the aisle
5. 1-2 songs as the guests exit
Q: Does Emily perform at outdoor weddings and events?
A: Yes, all the time. The harp is extremely fragile, though, so be sure you have a level, shaded spot for it during your event, and a back-up location in case it rains. The harp absolutely cannot get wet, so if you’re determined to have an outdoor wedding/event, rain or shine, the harp is probably not the best fit for you.
Q: Does Emily attend wedding rehearsals?
A: Emily does not typically attend wedding rehearsals, though she may for an added fee.
Q: How do I book Emily?
A: Email the details of your event (date, location, event type, and the time for harp performance) to Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once Emily confirms she is available, she will send you a form to fill out so she can make up a contract. A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to secure your event. This deposit counts toward your total due.
Q: What are Emily's rates?
A: Pricing depends on many factors, including event location and accessibility. Please contact Emily for details.
