I would recommend a harpist for every ceremony, especially using Cara! Cara was extremely helpful and friendly. She helped us along the way to create a playlist for our ceremony. The songs we selected sounded ten times better on the harp. Cara did an amazing job and our guests are still in awe. We had an outside ceremony and she was very flexible. I was too excited walking down the aisle to hear my song, but everyone said it was perfect. If you are looking for a romantic, sophisticated, elegant feel for your wedding ceremony or even cocktails defiantly hire Cara, I would again in a heartbeat.

I contracted Cara, Natalie and Abby to perform during the ceremony and cocktail hour of our wedding and was more than pleased with the results! The trio performed the harp, violin and cello during this time and well exceeded our expectations in wedding musicians. As a formed violinist myself and with my husband working in the music industry also, contracting the right trio was beyond important for us. We could not simply settle on just a solo harp alone and was pleased to learn that Cara was able to coordinate with two other musicians to accompany her during the day. Cara not only was professional during all interactions but she was timely and prompt for all meetings, including a Skype meeting in which she fully coordinated between herself, us and the other two musicians. She allowed for us to pick the song selections of our choice, adding her professional and musical opinion as needed. I strongly recommend Cara and her team to add the finishing touches to any celebration. Our wedding wouldn't be the same without these talented ladies. :)

Cara played the harp during our wedding ceremony and did an incredible job! She was great to work with throughout the wedding planning process - she was very quick to respond to emails and gave helpful suggestions for our song selection. Our venue had a few small sets of steps to navigate in order to get the patio where our ceremony was held, but Cara was a trooper and made it work! She plays beautifully and her music fit the mood of our wedding perfectly. Thanks for a memorable walk down the aisle, Cara!

Cara is a beautiful and talented musician. Her music made our event very special and elegant. My daughter got married at a venue called the Castle at Maryvale so the harp really contributed to the ambiance. Cara worked with us beforehand and help us plan the pieces that would be played incorporating some of our favorites. She also played during the cocktail hour. Her charges were very reasonable and she was easy to work with. We would highly recommend her fro any event.

Cara played at our wedding at Maryvale Castle on October 13th. She was wonderful to work with. She coordinated well in advance with our soloist and a string quartet to work out who was playing what, when. She played before the service, during and after for the cocktail hour. We highly recommend her! Thanks Cara

Cara did an amazing job. She has a great song selection, and we received many compliments from our guests on the harp playing! Cara also did an AMAZING job saving us from a little ceremony glitch! We were supposed to have a bagpiper play for our recessional, but when the ceremony was over, he wasn't there (someone had told him the ceremony was delayed - eek!). Cara picked her harp right up and started playing, and no one even noticed there was a problem! It was beautiful, Cara was wonderful, I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a harpist!

Cara was great to work with from the start. She allowed me to submit suggestions and requests for music, but also had the experience and expertise to know what would sound nice for her to play between those pieces.
Her quality of playing was far greater than the other harpists I've heard and I never doubted she would hold up her end of the arrangement--which she did!
