Jekyll Island, GA

This was the sweetest little wedding ceremony! Just the most special guests, as you can see by the number of chairs, with a romantic and shady spot under the oaks. The bride arrived with her children on a horse and carriage, in true Jekyll Island style ♥

I loved the songs the couple chose for their special day ~

Groom – I Get To Love You (Ruelle)

Horse & Carriage – Hallelujah

Bride – Canon In D

Recessional – So Happy Together

To start off the Christmas music season, I was invited to play for a very sweet and special event at First United Methodist in downtown St. Augustine. The church’s children’s ministry had put together an Advent Prayer Walk through the sanctuary, with decorated stations to represent each part of the Christmas story.

The church has a beautiful sanctuary (and great acoustics!), so it was a delight to spend a few hours playing all the traditional carols. Happy December!

A beautiful Christmas wedding at St. Mark’s! I always love to play in historic places, and this church was built in the 1850’s. Bonus history lesson for you….one of its founding members was the first governor of Florida, and it was occupied by Union soldiers during the civil war.

For my part in the ceremony, I played during guest seating and for the bridal party entrance. The rest of the music was done on the church’s stately pipe organ.

Prelude ~ Arioso (Bach), Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach), Butterfly Waltz (Brian Crain)

Bridal Party Entrance ~ Canon in D (Pachelbel)

Because who can pass up a photo op with the Chick fil A cow…am I right?

This was a fun event at the Fleming Island restaurant – I was invited to play for Renaissance Night! Decorations, games in the parking lot, staff in costume and live music 🙂

And I will say that a 6 foot tall harp is always fun in unexpected places! I love having the chance to answer questions and talk with people who have never seen one in person 🙂
