Lianna and Kerry’s Wedding at Cooper’s Hawk Winery @chwinery #photos #tampaharpist @theknot #harpist
When Lianna first contacted me, I knew immediately that her wedding ceremony was going to be amazing. Lianna and Kerry included me in their wedding ceremony and reception at Cooper’s Hawk Winery in Tampa. The sweet couple made me an integral part of their ceremony by carefully selecting song requests for me. Their “playlist” was so fun and included a variety of songs from Queens to Avenged Sevenfold to The Elder Scrolls and Zelda! I definitely know a lot more about video games thanks to this awesome couple. The couple included video game props throughout the ceremony and reception sites. Some of their guests even came dressed in costume, how fun! Lianna was so sweet and looked so gorgeous in her antique wedding dress. Even though it was a stressful few weeks for Lianna before the big day, her wedding day went flawlessly and was perfect (including her hair!). ;) I really enjoyed this wedding (and the food)! I am so thankful that I was included in this special moment. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Ward!!
Side note: This was my last wedding of my pregnancy. As it turns out, my first wedding of my pregnancy was also at Cooper’s Hawk Winery! My pregnancy came full circle at this event. Also, the officiant from the previous wedding, you know the Star Wars themed wedding? He was also the officiant for this wedding! Same officiant two days in a row, both themed weddings. What a coincidence! This obviously means nothing but good vibes for Lianna and Kerry! ;)
Oh! and did I mentioned that they were featured on The Knot's Instagram account with over 5,800 likes?! Amazing photo by SNI Photography! Click on the photo below to start the slideshow!
I was so delighted to play for Joanne and Tim’s wedding ceremony at Andrews Memorial Chapel in Dunedin. The chapel is decorated with antiques and is so charming! I loved the details of this historic building. Joanne was so incredibly sweet and accommodating to me during the planning process and I’m so thankful for her kindness! Joanne did a wonderful job in planning their Friday morning intimate ceremony. Tim’s a big Star Wars fan and Joanne wanted to surprise him with some personal touches to their ceremony. The officiant wore a Jedi robe and Joanne was escorted down the aisle by her son. Her sweet son even gave her away during the ceremony (I may have shed a tear at this) and also “lost” the rings!! Thankfully, Chewbacca was there to save the day! The “Star Wars Main Theme” was absolutely perfect for the couple’s grand exit. This ceremony was so much fun. I laughed, I cried. I’m sad I didn’t get a picture of Chewbacca and the harp but SO delighted I got to share this moment with the wonderful couple. I wish you nothing but love and happiness in life’s journey together!
