Soloist for Wedding - Violinist? Violist? Harpist? Guitar?

We need a soloist or perhaps duo for the outdoor wedding of our daughter on Sunday, June 16, 2013 at 3pm. Wedding will be at Bohemian Flats Park across from the East Bank, just south of the Washington Avenue bridge. There will be a large canopy over the wedding site on a newly-built patio area. After the ceremony, the reception will be on the Paradise Lady yacht on the river, but musicians won't be needed on the boat, most likely, due to cost.

Looking for music before the ceremony, during the short processional, and after the ceremony as people leave the site and board the boat.

Both parents graduated from the U of MN and met there in 1972.
