Catherine was such a delight to work with from picking out music to the day of our event. She is so talented her music added a magical touch to the ceremony. Even when we had a small snafu with the bridal party recession she just looped the music and no one ever noticed there was a hitch....she never skipped a beat. Her playing was so beautiful it was hard to refrain from applauding after each piece. Do yourself a favor and hire this truly professional and talented musician to play at your next event!!!

Catherine did an amazing job at my reception, she played all the songs beautifully!!! I couldn't have asked for a better harpist. Her energy and friendliness are exceptional. She worked with me over the phone and email because I live in Chicago and had my wedding in Florida, and was a great help with choosing the songs and telling me about the organization and processional schedules, I had no idea of any of this! She also helped me with the ceremonies that go on during the wedding (I chose a wine ceremony and it went great).
Catherine is very knowledgeable and a great artist, she even played a song that was not in her repertoire, a very unique song to me and she played it flawlessly, I highly recommend her, she is the best!

I had the pleasure of working with Catherine on my wedding day. She is very understanding and helpful as she walked me through everything from song selection to timing of the ceremony. Catherine is not only professional but very caring. She was always willing to explain anything I needed clarification on. The day of my wedding it began to rain an hour or so before the ceremony, and Catherine remained calmed and it helped me to remain calm and I just remember her saying how beautiful I looked. All in all if you decide to book Catherine she will be a great addition to your ceremony and make your day one to remember! She will add an element of elegance, serenity and uniqueness. She's not just a harpist she's an excellent musician and a caring person. If you're looking for someone with talent, professionalism, a love of music, and a heart for the bride and groom Catherine Way should be your choice for your wedding day!

I first heard Catherine's music when I had gone to a bridal/wedding convention in Orlando. I heard her music and fell in love, and kept her card. When it came time to choose a ceremony musician, it was a no-brainer...my fiancé and I always knew we wanted actual musicians rather than DJ/loudspeaker music for our ceremony to add a more traditional and personal touch. After looking at her website we chose to have a duo of harp and violin. It was a WONDERFUL choice; the music was absolutely heavenly. So many of our guests gushed about the ceremony music afterwards, and our families felt that it was so moving and really added to the emotion and "feel" of the ceremony. All of our music selections were executed perfectly, and everything was beautiful.

In addition to the actual music the day of the event, I really have to commend Catherine on her professionalism and kind personality. Although we got married in FL where I grew up, my husband and I live in NY so it was not easy planning an out of state wedding. In addition, I have a hectic work schedule with odd hours, which made planning difficult. However, in regards to planning our ceremony music, Catherine made it incredibly easy. She was always prompt with every email, and patient with all of my questions. She also was understanding with the need for me to plan so much in advance in comparison to other brides, due to a strenuous work schedule the two months before my wedding. Catherine emails out a sheet with music "suggestions" for different parts of the ceremony, however she has such a large selection of songs that it was easy to choose selections in our taste and style. We loved how personal all of our music selections were.

Thank you Catherine Way, for beautiful, touching, AMAZING ceremony music. It made our ceremony complete. Thank you!

If you are looking for an amazingly talented and highly professional musician to perform at your wedding then look no further! Catherine Way is absolutely wonderful! Extremely talented, professional and down to earth are my main descriptions of her. My wedding went off with out a hitch from beginning to end, thanks in part to her. The music selection was perfectly orchestrated and filled the lakeside venue with enchantment. I was so at ease walking down the aisle, knowing that Ms. Way had everything under control and playing so beautifully. Ms. Way was very organized and easy to contact in regards to arranging what I wanted for my wedding and if any changes needed to be made. My guests had such wonderful compliments to give me regarding my music and musician selection, stating my wedding sounded like a fairy tale and that they would have loved a harpist at their weddings! You won't be disappointed with Ms. Way and her amazing talent and professionalism!

Catherine Way did the preceremy music as guests were being seated at the church. She created the perfect environment and the music was lovely and the harp set the tone for the ceremony. Catherine was very professional and very organized; she got to the church before scheduled to go over music and coordinate with the on site musicians. Catherine had many musical suggestions and provided sound clips so we could hear her playing the music before the ceremony. Catherine Way was the perfect start to our beautiful ceremony and I would definately recommend her for your event!

She was always available to discuss music specifics and would always respond to my emails very promptly. Catherine was very flexible with the music selection, and played all of my requested music which included Disney music, current radio music and traditional music. The beautiful music really brought the ceremony together and gave it the touch of elegance I was looking for. I would highly recommend her to future brides!

Catherine Way is an ultimate professional and we were thrilled when she agreed to play the harp at my daughters wedding in February. Jessica has always been fond of the Disney "Princesses" and our guests were pleased (and a little surprised) at hearing pre-wedding Disney tunes! She played a beautiful melody as the bride and her father walked down the outdoor walkway. Catherine is very quick to respond, has recorded music to ease in selection, was prompt to arrive and, by far, the best harpist we reviewed.

With so much focus on the dress, the food and the flowers, so many brides overlook the magic a harp can bring to the wedding day. Catherine Way was so very helpful by providing samples of her work, a song list and even song recommendations for the ceremony. We HIGHLY recommend Catherine for your special day, especially if you have a video made to capture the beauty of the day. You will watch the video and relive your special day with the elegance of the harp music. Thank you Catherine!

Catherine was such a joy to work with. When I was stressing out and nervous about making the right choice in musician she was an immediate blessing. She was willing to work with me on a lot of different things. I wasn't your traditional bride. I was a Disney bride who had Disney music for the entire ceremony, and then switched to country and Twilight themed music for the cake/champagne reception. It was so beautiful the whole way through, and just hearing how she transitioned them together was amazing. She was easy to contact, had fast response times, and has even been a joy to talk to after the ceremony. Everyone was impressed with her music. I still cry to this day tears of joy when I hear certain songs and remember the beautiful way they sounded in the gazebo. She really is a great musician to work with.

She was willing to work with me on a lot of different things. I wasn't your traditional bride. I was a Disney bride who had Disney music for the entire ceremony, and then switched to country and Twilight themed music for the cake/champagne reception. It was so beautiful the whole way through, and just hearing how she transitioned them together was amazing. She was easy to contact, had fast response times, and has even been a joy to talk to after the ceremony. Everyone was impressed with her music. I still cry to this day tears of joy when I hear certain songs and remember the beautiful way they sounded in the gazebo. She really is a great musician to work with. Read less

Catherine Way was the harpist that played at my daughter's wedding at Shades of Green at Walt Disney World in April. She was very easy to work with throughout the entire process. We wanted a beautiful and classic wedding and that is exactly what we got. The minute she began playing, the wedding became magical! She played for the wedding and the cocktail hour that followed. We had many compliments about the music and I would hire her again in a heart beat. I highly recommend her.

Catherine was the best harpist!!! I am so happy she was able to play during my ceremony. She offered great music advice, was friendly and professional, unlike some other artists I dealt with before. She sent me a CD with her list of songs but was open to my ideas as well.
Her prices are great and she is wonderful!

Catherine played for our ceremony and cocktail hour.

First, my husband and I think that Catherine was very professional. She was very responsive and promptly responded to our very many questions. Also very nice and personable. The pieces she played at the wedding were wonderful and a lot of our guests loved her.

I don't know why an anonymous poster from 9/19/11 has to rail against a professional in a forum such as this. Without being flippant: OXIDATION. I bet you anything that getting a harp wet would destroy it. I completely understand Catherine not wanting to set up in the rain, after rain, in the middle of rain, whatever. In Florida we all know how stopped rain starts again with BANDS of rain. BACKGROUND: Ours was to be a smaller, family friendly sit down wedding. We wanted it to be what we termed as "classy" with live music playing a dominant role from the start of the ceremony through the dinner time. It would be very low key; the DJ wouldn't begin until later, transitioning in with Sinatra and the like. We structured a plan over time by email and phone to have Catherine perform solo from guest arrival until the reception start. At the time of bridal party announcement, Catherine would lead an ensemble including cellist and violin and play through the dinner. Working with Catherine was very easy from start to finish. Our music selection was mostly from her extensive suggestions list, but we also searched the web and asked her to perform one piece that I actively took a role in locating piano sheet music for! REVIEW: I'll "start" the review by writing that the day of the wedding was PERFECT in every way. Our guests loved the ambiance of the harp music, and even chuckled as the groomsmen were being photographed to the playing of the Godfather Theme (on harp!) It didn't go unnoticed by guests that Catherine was playing a set list of popular pieces that we loved. The arrangement of the music by Catherine were beautifully conceived and played. Catherine isn't just reading off someone's sheet music. She is a professional muscician, composer. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Catherine Way for any function. She was a huge contributor to our realized wedding vision. Thank you...

When I look back at my wedding day at Paradise Cove the only thing that was a negative factor was my harpist. Her timely response and communication before the wedding was wonderful and then when it came to my wedding day it was a entirely different story! It started to rain before my outdoor wedding and the diva came out in Catherine Way. She wasn't willing to set her harp up because of the rain (understandable) the wedding coordinator offered to set up a easy up for her, she declined. Someone else offered to hold an umbrella up for her and that wasn't good enough either. Her uncompromising made the wedding start late and it had stopped raining and she still wouldn't set up in her originally spot under any sort of umbrella or easy up!. She was suppose to play arrival music, she didn't, and ceremony. She flew out of there so fast once the ceremony was over. She ending up planning in a storage shed not even close to the ceremony and the harp was very hard to hear. A special moment for my future groom and mother wasn't even heard because she was so far away from the ceremony. Sad I wasted my money.
