Romantic Ceremony Music
Sophie played the harp at my wedding and I couldn’t have been happier. My husband and I were looking for a musician to add a romantic touch to our ceremony. Sophie did exactly that. Several of my family members and guests came up to me after the wedding saying how much they enjoyed it. Sophie was very easy and accommodating to work with from start to finish. Whenever, I had a question she was prompt to communicate back. I highly recommend Sophie!

What a wonderful experience! Sophie is super professional and talented. Her music was beautiful, and exactly what we were hoping for. We had her learn a few Joanna Newsom songs as well as the theme song for Howl's Moving Castle. She totally nailed them! She even came with her own seating, and she didn't even complain when we squished her in the corner with a bunch of bridesmaids in a hot carriage house. She was a trooper and I highly recommend her for your wedding.

I heard Sophie play at a wedding vendor event and absolutely loved her music. She was very easy to plan with and took all my instructions and requests to heart (even the last minute ones!) We got married at a pretty strict Catholic Church and she was very familiar with the flow of mass and church formalities. I was never worried about how well she would do and I received several compliments on her playing. She brought this romantic, sweet yet upbeat touch to our ceremony and I am so happy we decided to choose her as a harpist.
