Wedding Entertainment

A typical wedding ceremony includes 30 minutes of prelude music while the guests are arriving and being seated, processional music for both the bridesmaids and the bride, and a recessional or exit song. Often there may be music throughout the service as well such as at the lighting of a unity candle or a sand ceremony. The bride and groom may also want a song that is special to them to be performed during the wedding ceremony.

Please refer to the Repertoire page to find a complete list of both Traditional and Contemporary selections from which to choose. Taylor is constantly adding to her collection of music and invites you to feel free to request any song that is especially important to you.

Taylor's wedding services also include a private live-performance consultation. She invites her clients into her home to hear the harp in person and to provide seasoned advice as to the best way to plan the program for their wedding music. Couples are encouraged to bring along family or wedding party members. In the case of Destination Weddings, this consultation can be done via Skype or FaceTime.

Weddings

The harp is simply the perfect instrument to accompany a wedding ceremony. Whether the occasion will be large or small, formal or casual, indoor or outdoor, Taylor has the ability to create the perfect program of wedding music that you have always envisioned. Traditional brides will delight in hearing their favorite wedding songs made even more lovely by the delicate sound of the harp. Those who would prefer more contemporary music will have a surprisingly vast repertoire of new chart-topping hits as well as classic love songs from which to choose. Taylor is privileged to have been invited to participate in the most important day in the lives of hundreds of couples, and would be honored to be a part of yours.

Parties & Receptions

When most people think of the harp, they imagine a delicate instrument that would be difficult to hear over a crowd. Actually, the harp is quite powerful; it puts forth enough sound to create a pleasant atmosphere without being intrusive. Because of this, the harp is excellent for background music at almost any event. The harp lends itself well to both private and business environments. Whether you’re planning a large corporate function or a small gathering of friends, the harp will provide just the right ambience. Taylor’s long career has included occasions such as birthday and anniversary celebrations, wedding receptions, baby and wedding showers, dinners, and holiday parties.

Sacred Occasions

Throughout history, the harp has been recognized as the musical instrument of Angels. Therefore, it is not surprising that the harp is the perfect musical complement to sacred occasions. For example, the sweet and soothing sounds of the harp can provide a comforting atmosphere at a loved one’s memorial service. The harp is often used during religious ceremonies. Taylor has performed both as a solo artist and as choir accompaniment. She is particularly experienced performing during Christmas and Easter celebration services, as well as other special occasion services.
