I had the opportunity to play the piano for a friend's wedding last Saturday. It went very well, and was a nice wedding. I found that there's much more to playing for a wedding than just learning the music, though. The hardest part was getting the timing right. There were different songs for different parts of the processional, so I had to figure out where to stop so that it sounded good but everybody wasn't sitting there waiting for the song to be over. I had to watch and see how fast everyone was walking in hopes of getting to a good stopping place at the right time. Whew! I guess it was okay, though, because I got postive feedback afterward. Yay!
