Grace Scarpino-Stoutenburg

Professional Harpist

Weddings



Sacred or secular, indoor or outdoor, elaborate or intimate, the harp                           is a perfect addition to your special day!


I work closely with the bride and groom, the wedding planner, location staff and personnel, and the officiant to ensure the musical accompaniment goes as smoothly as possible.


Clients may reserve harp services for all, some, or just one of the following elements of the traditional marriage ceremony: 


Solo prelude
