Shannon was amazing! She met with us so we could hear her play in person, but also sent us video clips by email for each part of our ceremony (recessional, processional). This made it easy for us to choose the music. She was very reliable, professional, and affordable. We would definitely recommend her!! Everyone commented on how wonderful she was :)

Amazing Harpist for the elegant wedding [7/21/2018]
We are so so happy to have Shannon there at our wedding (Both the ceremony and the cocktail hour)!! Before the wedding, she communicated with me about all the details about what we want, what we expect and even what outfit we want her to show up with. She is super reliable, responsive, detail-oriented and professional. That's my impression before the wedding. Also Shannon provides great recommendations of harp music for different settings based on my preferred style. Very helpful and we got it done so promptly.
The wedding day passed so fast and now 3 months passed, I still remember when my dad walked me down the road by the lake, I saw my husband, and the priest and then I saw Shannon! Beautifully sitting there in the perfect pink (matched with my wedding party) with the beautiful harp by the lake. My dad was shaking a little since he was very emotional at that moment, and so did I. But when Shannon's music started, my heart just got so filled with happiness and emotions that made me smile. I am so glad you were there for me, and for everybody. Thank you so much Shannon.
I missed the cocktail hour since we were taking so many photos but all our family and friends were so amazed by the view of the museum terrace facing the lake and hills, with Shannon's harp music in the background. Now they are all convinced that a harp is a must for a wedding haha. So romantic, elegant and beautiful.
