With over twenty years experience, Stephen Holter provides quality piping to make your wedding day unique and special. All of the following options are available to you:

* Piping as guests arrive, typically beginning about 20 minutes prior to the service

* Piping the entrance of the groom and groomsmen

* Piping for the mothers and bridesmaids

* Bridal Processional - You may either be lead down the aisle by the piper or not

* Recesional - This is the most requested point for the piper. Once you are presented as a couple for the first time, Stephen would begin piping at the back of the aisle and come up to you, do a slow turn, then lead you both back up the aisle. Upon reaching the back, Stephen would then step to the side and continue piping as the rest of the wedding party recesses. This is a fantastic way to conclude the ceremony.

Stephen may also be reserved to pipe for your reception, either to welcome guests as they arrive, or to pipe your entrance as you are being introduced, then escorted to your place at the head table. Read less

INFO FOR CEREMONY MUSIC

What ceremony music arrangements can you provide?
Instrumental - Solo
What is your usual attire?
I would be dressed in full uniform with the Sutherland kilt, black vest, jacket and tie.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
My website, www.ohiobagpiper.com, has samples of tunes available. Depending upon logistics, I have also met with prospective couples to do live samples and personally discuss options. Email and phone are also options.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
I always allow myself ample time to get to the location and do final tuning. I do preliminary tuning prior to my arrival there so that I may be ready to go in a few minutes.
How much space do you usually require?
Very little space is required as it is simply my pipes and me, plus I am very mobile and flexible!
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Unless the distance is quite extraordinary, I simply charge a flat fee for my services. I would let you know my fee in advance so that there are no surprises.

Stephen was the perfect accent to our special day. He was very easy to get ahold of and his music is beautiful. He started playing about 45 minutes before our ceremony as our guests were arriving. He continued to play for our cocktail hour. Because of rain, our cocktail hour had to be moved inside, but he adjusted well. (You figure a bagpipe is a pretty loud instrument) He is a great way to add something unique to your ceremony and he is well worth the money!!

We hired Stephen just for our ceremony music and he was perfect. He played probably close to an hour before the ceremony even started. Whenever people started showing up he started playing. He is well worth the money and real professional.

We had originally booked with Mr. Holter, but unfortunately, he ended up not being able to perform at our ceremony. However, he quickly found us a replacement and arranged everything for us. Bob Boey piped for our ceremony and it was beautiful! Our guests were so surprised and his music was amazing!
