Red Rock Canyon is a scenic destination for weddings on the west side of Las Vegas, just 30 minutes from the Strip. Having harp music for your Red Rock Canyon wedding will only enhance the drama and uniqueness of what is already an unforgettable backdrop for a wedding ceremony.
Getting to the Ceremony Site
If you have been researching the Red Rock Canyon Boardwalk for your wedding or elopement venue, then you probably already know that it's a bit of a trek up to the site! But I'm here to tell you that, absolutely yes, you can have harp up there! I always arrive early to wedding ceremonies, but the Red Rock Canyon Boardwalk is a special case, so I allow extra time for the walk up there. Check out these pics I took while heading up to the ceremony site recently:
I use a dolly to cart my harp up the boardwalk. That's my dress hanging off the left side of my harp covers! (Message me for my super stealthy outfit change routine--I don't want to get my dress dirty and wrinkled during the walk up with the harp!)
Preparing for Your Red Rock Canyon Wedding
Here are some ways that I come prepared for Red Rock Canyon Boardwalk in particular:
If you're planning your Red Rock Canyon wedding, I highly recommend that you make sure to have sunscreen and sunglasses on hand for yourself--and remind your guests of this, as well. Even outside of summer, it can get really hot in Las Vegas, and no one wants a sunburn as a memento of the wedding! (Some extra water bottles are always a good idea, too.)
Here are a few shots of the harp set up before the guests and other vendors have arrived. How gorgeous is that background?!
Live Music at Red Rock Canyon
There are some definite advantages to having live harp music at your Red Rock Canyon wedding.
Depending on when the guests arrive at the Boardwalk, there may need to be a lot of prelude music or only a little. My experience playing at Red Rock Canyon is that I need to have flexibility with the length of the prelude, as the timing can vary from what the planner or coordinator expects. Everything depends on when the guests arrive at the site, and then the aisle setup is different from other venues. As a live musician, I can adjust in the moment to make everything flow naturally so that the guests won't even realize if the timing ends up being slightly different than anticipated.

I am thrilled to have played several weddings at the Red Rock Canyon Boardwalk. Here are two reviews from recently married couples who hired me as their ceremony harpist:
