Weddings

In a few weeks, my daughter is getting married, & I've been practicing her 'special request' songs! Sharon Thormahlen's 'Planting Dandelions' (from 'A Rose in Winter') while the kids toss flower petals; the theme from 'Friends' for the attendants, & 'You Say it Best When You Say Nothing at All' for her own walk down the isle. I'll play one of my songs for the candle lighting, & the Bridal Chorus at the end. She's a beautiful bride, & her girls are so excited to 'finally' be in a wedding! I'll be playing 'Rowan Luchair' (above), my 34 string harp from Rick Kemper.

It's also time for the annual publication of the Bridal guide, & my ad is up for renewal. Our local paper gives out the guide to all brides as they publish their engagement photos, or their wedding date, so it's a good connecting point.

I have a tentative booking for a Sept. wedding; at times I play for several weddings in a year, other years, only a few; & there are always the requests for a CD - maybe this year??
