I have had the the good fortune of playing my harp at many South Florida Weddings over the years. I have seen incredible venues as well as wedding designs. However some of the best ways to add to your wedding is by "special additions" that make a real impact - that bring your wedding to the next level. These special additions make your wedding unique and special to the wedding couple.
One of the most popular additions is the FLOWER WALL. I have seen some really sweet playful Flower Walls made out of paper flowers which include all colors and sizes. It makes for a very fantasy like feel. I have also seen faux ROSE FLOWER WALLS that cover an entire wall with roses that make such a romantic back drop for the wedding ceremony and especially for wedding photographs. I have seen a wall of red roses that make such a statement as guests are photographed. The latest - I have even scene is large sequin walls. The lighting picks up and reflect off the shiny sequin wall. It makes a more contemporary and party feel. These Flower Walls are great for a banquet hall that is not terribly interesting. They can add a really nice touch to the room no matter where you place them.
Another of my other favorite wedding additions -- is GIANT LETTERS. Most commonly used is the giant letters that spell the word - LOVE. I have seen them as large as 6 ft tall white letters. With a spotlight on them in the center of the reception hall - adds a fun addition to your wedding. The giant letters are even more interesting when you are having an out door wedding ceremony. They are placed on the green grass and in white they really pop. I have seen the large letters with a glass top making it a reception table as the guests arrive or to put the cake on. The giant letters are a fun special addition to any wedding.
Further - there is photography and videography which are always something that most want to include with their wedding. Although I love the traditional portraits of the wedding couple - but now some videographers offer DRONE videography. The DRONES can give a vew of the ceremony and the wedding receptions from w hole different perspective. An ariel view is always special so that you can remember your wedding day. I have seen creative pictures taken with the drone of the Bride in her wedding dress that could never been taken by a typical video. I have been playing my harp at a pre-ceremony and I have had a drone approach me getting amazing shots. A drone can get creative shots of your venue that a regular videographer can not. I have also played at an ocean side venue in Fort Lauderdale and the drone would fly up the isle with pictures of me playing the harp, the seating in the ceremony and then fly off into the ocean. The DRONE shots can add amazing shots and memories to your South Florida Wedding.
Finally and the most beautiful special addition to your wedding -- would be a HARPIST. Yes - you can have a violinist or a DJ play music for your ceremony and/or cocktail hour -- but the site and sound of the HARP is something your guests will find most special. Remember the HARP is 6 ft tall and can easily be seen no matter where you place the harp in your venue. The wonderful thing about having a harpist is that you can add it to a very small ceremony in a garden or a more traditional ceremony in a church or a wedding venue. The harp makes any South Florida Venue special. Then there is the sound. With my fingers running over the strings -- the harp makes a sound that is unique to all other instruments and very much in the wedding feel. Plus - the harp can play all kinds of music -- Canon in D , All of Me - John Legend, Perfect - Ed Sheeran, Cant Help Falling In Love with You - Elvis and the traditional Here Comes the Bride,etc.. Dont forget to add the harp to your cocktail hour -- I have played many times for cocktails and including all kinds of music -- even special songs requested by the Bride and Groom. The harp adds the perfection transition from wedding ceremony to cocktail hour. Remember - the harp's sound and appearance reminds your guests that they are at a special moment. The reaction of your guests seeing and hearing the harp will quickly make you realize that you chose the most special addition for your South Florida Wedding.
