Wedding Music Planner

My experience as a performing harpist ranges from concerts to background music, but one of my abiding pleasures is providing music for brides and grooms-to-be. It's a privilege for me to participate in that life-altering, nerve-wracking, joyous thing we call a wedding, and I'll be pleased to do my part in making your ceremony meaningful and memorable. The harp is a versatile instrument, as capable of providing a stirring march for walking down the aisle as it is playing a gentle interlude during your ceremony. Thank you for considering my harp music for your wedding!
