    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!

    Beautiful Music and Wonderful Person!

    I loved working with Laurie! She was very easy to communicate with, as well as friendly. Laurie was able to accommodate all of the songs we requested at our wedding even though they were not on her website. She was very punctual in her arrival the day of the ceremony and worked with my wedding planner to make sure the timing of the music was exactly right.
    The harp music made my walk down the aisle feel so special. It sounded magical! I would definitely hire her again for a future event and recommend her to anyone looking for a harpist. My only wish is that she could have stayed longer because my guests and I did not want the music to stop!
