Marissa was easy to work with and is so talented! I grew up playing the harp and realized how wonderful it would be to have a harpist at our wedding. She played for our outdoor ceremony and her music was just beautiful. Timing and volume level was perfect and she executed the songs without a flaw. Also, her harp is gorgeous!Sent on 09/22/2019

We booked Marissa kind of last minute. We originally had strings lined up to play for our ceremony and they bailed last minute. Marissa was incredibly accommodating and she was very responsive. Her music was beautiful and it truly left such an elegant touch on our wedding day. Our guests raved about her music and her harp was such a lovely addition to our photos. I can't wait to get our wedding video back so I can listen to all of the harp music! I recommend Marissa to anyone that wants to make their event that much special!Sent on 08/16/2018
