Cara performed at our ceremony this past weekend! I was not originally sure what type of music I wanted for the ceremony, but we met Cara at a Wedding Expo and I knew I wanted her to play. Cara was so easy to work with, answering any questions we had. She has a pretty extensive repertoire to choose from but was also able to learn a new song for us (The Peanuts song) that my husband really wanted as our exit.

If you are looking for a harpist, I would definitely recommend Cara!!!!

Cara performed at our wedding on Aug. 28th 2015, at Newton White Mansion. If I could give Flexibility more stars, I WOULD! Firstly Cara was so easy to contact and she was also very responsive. My fiance and I came up with a list of songs we wanted to be played, which were not on her repertoire and she played them masterfully. I especially loved her rendition of the song I chose for my entrance, Lana Del Ray's 'Young and Beautiful'. I was a ball of emotions already and as soon as I heard it, I immediately started to cry LOL. Back to flexibility, our ceremony unfortunately started soooo very late because we were waiting for a very late vendor with prop(s) :-( ughhh. Cara was able to stay and continue to play through the late start, and my fiance and I were soooooo very grateful. SO professional and talented. Thank you again Cara!!!!!!

We hired Cara Fleck for our wedding ceremony at St. Mary Mother of God in Washington, DC on 08/08/2015. Cara was very professional to work with and responded quickly with any inquiries. She was very thorough in her responses and easy to work with. She followed up when she received the deposit/contract in the mail.

She arrived in plenty of time before the ceremony began and had no issues with set up, arrival etc. Cara did an amazing job performing for our ceremony! She played all songs as requested and guests complimented us on how beautiful the music was in the church.

I would highly recommend Cara based on her professionalism and musical talent!

I wanted to take this time to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding ceremony on Sunday, June 28th at the Oxon Hill Manor. my guests just rave about the harpist and the pre-ceremony/ceremony music. The music selections and sound was just beautiful, and the harp itself was a piece of art -just as beautiful. It really spoke to the tone of the wedding and the venue. You are very talented and I truly wish you the best of luck in all you do. Keep using music a a way to being a smile and happiness to all that hear you play.

So thanks again, and I would definitely pass on your information and recommend you to family and friends for functions.

Take care and wish you the best!

Cara provided music for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She was a joy to work with and provided top notch service. She is extremely talented and is able to play a wide variety of music on harp. My guests were amazed when she switched from classical to modern pop with such ease. She helped every step if the way when I had trouble planning my ceremony music, and even learned a new song I requested for walking down the aisle. I highly recommend Cara for your wedding, there is nothing more elegant and romantic than the harp!

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. :)
