    Sarah was wonderful to work with. She even learned new music for me! The music was beautiful and the harp itself amazing. I wish I could have had her longer!

    There is something magical about a harp. The presence of a harp at a wedding speaks volumes in personality and taste. Sara does a wonderful job with her harp and if you want to create a magical moment at your wedding I highly recommend her.
