Jessica played the harp at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She had great ideas for the music selection and she had plenty of experience at our setting. It was the perfect touch for our garden wedding. She was so easy to work with.

Jessica did a great job at our ceremony! We had a meeting in her home and discussed the type of feel we wanted and the music selections that would fit that feel. She completely understood us and played us a few selections. She also printed out a couple customized songs that we wanted to use and played it for us right there. It was so nice to be able to pick exactly what song we wanted to hear when the wedding party was walking out and it helped putting me at ease to hear Jessica playing her beautiful harp to the song I picked to walk out to. We absolutely loved it, thank you Jessica!!

Plays a beautiful Harp and is very friendly and professional. A pleasure to work with!

Jessica was very kind throughout the planning process. I had several questions for her and she addressed each one without hesitation and made ME feel more comfortable! When she arrived at the venue on the wedding day, she jumped right in and took her place...never missing a beat. She has a great attitude and is a team player! And speaking as a musician myself, she is one talented lady! Her music is beautiful - a true professional at what she does. I highly recommend Jessica for your event.

It was such a pleasure to work with Jessica and on top of it knowing she had provided beautiful music at many of our events. Jessica is a talented and well rounded musician and has a fluid sound that will make walking down the isle or enjoying cocktails in a lovely garden an extra special experience.
