    5 stars - amazing

    Shelley was AMAZING for our wedding! I cannot put in words how perfect it was to have her playing at our ceremony. It truly felt like she amplified the emotions and love that was in that room with her music. The amount of compliments we received from our guests about the ceremony music was amazing as well. THANK YOU so much! Couldn't recommend Shelley more!!

    Shelley Otis's reply:

    Thank you so much! You were both glowing that day, and I’m really glad I could be a part of such a special moment. Thanks for having me at your wedding 😊

    Shelley is amazing, professional and so talented. She was the harpist at our ceremony and cocktail hour and our guests raved about her talent. She was so sweet to work with and learned a song specifically for us. Do not walk, RUN!!! To book Shelley for your event!

    Shelley Otis's reply:

    Thanks for the kind words Michelle! I’m glad everyone enjoyed the music. I had fun learning that song as well, espeically after discovering what it meant to your personal story of how you met. Wishing you both much happiness!

    Shelley's music added a wonderful touch and created a meaningful wedding day!

    It was a pleasure to have Shelley play during our small outdoor wedding. She was happy to learn 2 new compositions on the harp for our entrance and exit ("When the Stars go Blue" and "I Will Follow You Into the Dark"), and arranged them spectacularly. All our guests commented on how beautiful her music was, and it really made the day! Shelley also offered excellent suggestions, including playing "Erev Shel Shoshanim" during our ring exchange, and gorgeous classical compositions during photo sessions. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting beautiful harp music that will be remembered for a lifetime.

    Shelley Otis's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words Eli! I really enjoyed getting to know both of you, and it was fun to put the music together for your wedding. And I really liked learning both of those songs. I’m glad you had me be a part of your wedding. Wishing you both all the best!
