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.
