    Joy played the harp at my wedding ceremony on 11/8/14 and she was just wonderful! She was recommended to us by our officiant who had worked with her quite often. Joy was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and really made our ceremony a beautiful part of our wedding day.

    There are not enough words to describe how pleased my husband and I were with Joy's performance at our wedding. A harpist was a part of our package with Stolen Moments, but we could not have imagined how wonderful our experience would truly be, until we met Joy. She was in constant contact with us prior to the wedding, and even invited my Mom, sister, and I to come and listen to a number of selections, which were all beautifully played. She got a feel for what music we wanted for the ceremony, and we chose specific songs for the processional together that day. On our wedding day, she arrived early for setup and began playing a number of songs for the guests, as they sat and waited for our ceremony to start. She then played absolutely beautifully for our processional. I could not have believe how amazing it would have sounded until I heard it that day--truly special. Joy made my wedding ceremony so beautiful and we would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

    Joy played so beautifully and was wonderful to work with. She made our special day spectacular, and worked so well with the other musicians who played for the ceremony. I am also a professional musician, and I chose her because not only is her work the highest quality, she is kind, attentive to detail, and truly cares about the people she works with.
