Harp for the heart

Laurie Rasmussen played beautifully at our wedding! Without any extra work on our part, she folded herself perfectly into the proceedings and worked seamlessly with our officiant to set up and play our outdoor wedding. Laurie's wonderful harp tones and bright smile added even more light to a day that will forever remain illuminated in our memories. Thank you Laurie!

Incredible Harpist

We loved Laurie's harp at our wedding. Many of our guests came up to us after the ceremony telling us what a wonderful addition she was to the ceremony. Moreover, Laurie was very easy to work with! She responded to our emails within hours and had great ideas for what we could have played at our ceremony. She was also great with logistics; she asked all the relevant questions upfront and knew exactly what to do the day of. I could not have asked for a better harpist at our wedding!
