Chanah is a GEM in the Wedding Industry!

It's not often you come across a vendor who cares about your event as much as you do, but Chanah is truly that. From our first conversations hitting it off over our mutual love of cats, to her genuine interest in learning and understanding South Asian culture and music, and her absolute professionalism and expertise through it all, Chanah is an absolute gem. She helped me navigate through her very detailed portfolio of available songs and was able to honor nearly every request I had. She took on the song requests I had and played the more beautifully than I've ever heard. She made great professional recommendations around logistics for maximizing the harp experience the day of, and was extremely flexible during the actual event. She checked in at appropriate times in the weeks leading up to the event and all around made me always feel comfortable and confident in my decision to work with her. All these factors would have made her a 10/10 vendor, but then she went even further above and beyond. My fiance and I are South Asian and while I'd always dreamed of having a harpist for our event, I especially wanted to feature some of the special South Asian songs I grew up with. Chanah committed to one of my choosing among the list of options I'd sent her, but two days before our event she surprised me and let me know she'd perfected 4 more of the South Asian songs to the harp, in addition to even watching some of the movies they came from. I was actually in tears hearing this music played during our event in a more beautiful way than I ever had before. Chanah is extremely skilled as a harpist and is an incredibly genuine and kind human being. I would work with her over and over and could not recommend her enough! Chanah, I've said this to you before and will say it again - you were the best part of our day, THANK YOU!!

Talented harpist, perfect addition to our wedding

We had Chanah play during the cocktail hour of our garden wedding. She was very professional and her playing is wonderful. Guests loved her and even gave her requests, which she accomodated!
