    Want a magical ceremony? Hire Shelley to play the music.

    There is no one like Shelley. Not only is she an extremely talented musician, she is incredibly kind and warm. We were so lucky that Shelley wasn't booked on our wedding date as we decided to add live music to our ceremony fairly last minute. The harp is such a beautiful and slightly unusual instrument. I can honestly say, it truly made our ceremony one of a kind.

    I approached Shelley with two ideas:

    1. My husband really likes a song called "Is and Is and Is" by White Denim (definitely an untraditional choice) and I thought it would be a fun tune for him to walk down to. Despite never hearing the song before, Shelley embraced the challenge and created such a fun arrangement for us!

    2. I got the idea of singing during my ceremony and Shelley was on board right away. She played a stunning, slowed down version of "I Choose You" by Sara Bareilles to accompany me. She was even willing to transpose the song to a different key that worked better for my vocal range. I was nervous (nearly chickened out several times!) but I did it, all thanks to Shelley's calm, encouraging presence. It was an amazing experience.

    My husband and I are beyond appreciative of Shelley's hard work and could not recommend her enough. Book her! People won't stop coming up to you to tell you how much they loved her music, even months after your wedding.
