Devon was amazing!! She was my favorite vendor and the music was gorgeous and the perfect background for our wedding ceremony. She was very organized and easy to work with--these aspects really stood out among our other vendors. She is also super responsive by email and has a very streamlined electronic process that made things easy to get set up from afar (our wedding was in Davenport but we planned it from Seattle). Nothing but great things to say and would recommend very highly! Our guests loved her, too!

We booked Devon for our wedding on 09-20-2013. The music sounded amazing and many of our guests asked where we found her. Each music selection change was seamless and made the ceremony go very smoothly. We felt she really went the extra mile with every aspect of he performance. Devon's personality was very pleasant and easy to deal with, (unlike some other harpists in our area), I highly recommend this harpist to anyone.

Absolutely fantastic! Loved the harp that we chose and the music that we chose for the ceremony. She was very professional and very easy to work with. Contacting her was not a hassle at all. She answers email promptly, cashes deposits promptly and will call if there is an issue with anything. Really enjoyed having her as part of our ceremony.

First we booked the church and ballroom for the reception, then we booked Devon. We had read and heard such great things about her that we didn't want to miss out on booking her. We only communicated through e-mails, and she answered any questions we had very quickly. You will not have any trouble finding songs for her to play as her song list is very long. My niece sang along with her at the ceremony, and it was absolutely amazing. It made the ceremony so special having their wonderful music. She was prompt in getting to the church when she said she would to practice with my niece. She is nothing but professional in all she does, and I would highly recommend her!! The only thing I am sorry about is that we didn't get much of a chance to talk in person. Book her ASAP before you miss out.

Devon did such a great job! We are glad we found The Classic Harpist. The harp really made the ceremony beautiful. It was also less expensive than getting a string quartet. They will travel to Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio!!! Thank you Devon! I will recommend you to all of my friends!

Devin was amazing! She is so incredibly talented and really helped to set such a classy tone at our wedding reception at Notre Dame SDH. Her music is so beautiful, and exactly what you’d want from a harpist – soft enough that it doesn’t distract, but vibrant enough to affect the mood. She also gets extra points for letting the brand new wifey, who used to play the harp, pose for a few pictures and play a bit of music herself!

She's so professional, doesn't pressure you in any way to hire her on the spot, and she responds really quickly to emails, a huge plus if you're planning a wedding from the west coast like we were!

We have to admit, having a harpist at our reception was one of the things we thought we only wanted a little bit, and almost didn’t pull the trigger on, but Devin had such great reviews and was so easy to communicate with that we were convinced. We’d like to put our two cents in as another positive review to convince anyone else on the fence to DO IT! Definitely one of the best, and classiest decisions we made for our wedding.

Devon was just simply amazing! Her services were actually the second (next to the venue) that I had booked, since her schedule books up so fast! In the months leading up to the wedding, she was very active in her communication with me and responded to all of my emails promptly. This really helped ease my nerves in the wedding planning process. About 2 months before the wedding, she came to our home for an in-person rehearsal with a friend of mine who was to also play violin. Devon was incredibly professional, prepared, and adaptable - she definitely knew what she was doing!!! The day of the wedding, she showed up early (and even dressed in our wedding colors!), and began right on time. Our wedding was outdoors in a forest preserve, and the sound of strings was so enchanting and added such a memorable touch to our day! She even created sheet music for my husband and I's song (Not Fire, Not Ice by Ben Harper), and even created sheet music for the violinist to accompany her!
One of the most influential things I remember is Devon's call to save the day! The microphone and speakers I had rented for the ceremony weren't working at all, and we almost thought that we would have to do without. Devon had a portable amp in her car (for use for her harp), and we ended up using the amp for the mic during the ceremony!! She was so incredibly helpful and definitely saved the day!
Devon went above and beyond my expectations in every single way possible. I HIGHLY recommend her, and she was much more affordable than I expected. I'd give her 10 stars if I could!

Devon is an amazingly talented harpist! She was extremely easy to work with. We have a couple of conversations with her over the phone and never even met her until the day of! But her website was extremely helpful. It offered a lot sample clips of her music! My guests loved the special touch of having a harpist at the ceremony and the cocktail hour. She's prompt, professional, prepared, self-sufficient, pretty, and musically amazing! Being that I was planning a destination wedding, having trust-worthy, professional vendors is KEY!

Devon's music was beautiful and perfect for our ceremony. The only complaint I had was that I never had the chance to speak with her the day of the wedding. It wasn't a huge deal, it just felt strange to have never spoken to her since all our previous communication was through e-mail!
