We decided to go with a harpist for our Summer wedding ceremony as it seemed like a unique touch that we hadn't seen in the past. After a bit of research online, I came across Lauren's website. It was very easy to get in touch with her and every email I sent to her was responded to promptly. I had a few unique requests for the ceremony, and to my delight Lauren was able to play the songs for us. Her skill at the harp is masterful to say the least. Everyone was so impressed by how beautiful her performance was, and it truly gave our outdoor ceremony that unforgettable quality. We are so happy to have chosen Lauren to play for us, and we hope to have the pleasure of hearing her play again in the future.Sent on 09/09/2014
