Shelley made our day extra special! Our guests are still raving about what a beautiful touch her music added to our ceremony. She is extremely talented. We even requested a special song that she learnt just for us. It really impressed me that during our consultation she was even able to figure out how to play a couple chords on the spot despite having never played it on the harp before. She was very professional and her prices were very reasonable. She even sent me a follow up email after the wedding thanking me for allowing her to be part of our wedding which I thought was very nice of her (none of our other vendors did that). I would definately recommend her to anyone out there looking for beautiful ceremony music!

Amazing and elegant!
Shelley was so easy to work with! She sounded absolutely amazing during the ceremony and cocktail hour; we received so many compliments from our guests! She gave such a romantic feel to the rustic venue and really helped tie everything together, especially for the ceremony. Her version of "Here comes the sun" by the Beatles will make you tear as well as Canon in D! I highly recommend Shelley, you won't be disappointed!
