I would highly recommend Shelley for any event - she plays both modern and classic music and will customize her playing (and learn songs) for your event. We hired two other independent musicians for our event and Shelley did an amazing job coordinating with them to create a beautiful joint music set. Beyond her lovely music, Shelley is a pleasure to work with - I only wish I had gotten to hear more of her music as the bride :)

Working with Shelley was amazing. She is so talented and was so accommodating. She played the music for our wedding ceremony and it was so beautiful. I could not have asked for a better musician for my ceremony!

We highly recommend!! Shelley did a lovely job doing our ceremony music!! She plays a large range of songs and was helpful making suggestions and playing songs over the phone for us to hear. Many of the guests commented on how beautiful the harp sounded. Her timing was perfect especially during the wine pouring ceremony! Thank you so much Shelley for making the day that much more memorable and romantic!!

Shelley played the harp beautifully at my wedding. I could not have chosen anyone better! She made the process very easy. She has a full list of songs that she can play from old to new artists. All you have to do is select them. For my bridal exit song, I wanted a piece that she hasn't played in a while. She was very flexible and offered to practice playing it again for my wedding. If you are looking for a great harpist, I highly recommend Shelley!

It is just not possible to explain how amazing Shelly was as our harpist. She is able to play any song. Our guests mentioned how wonderful the music for our ceremony was to hear it helped them think warm thoughts during a very cold outdoor ceremony (my fault should have moved it inside hahah), and she played several special requests for us that had personal meaning. The music was beautiful and is was truly a pleasure to work with her.

Shelley was amazing, she really listened to what we wanted and set the scene for a magical mood. She was so great before hand playing us songs on skype to see what we would like. Our guests were so impressed by her playing.

Shelley was an excellent choice for our wedding! She provided our ceremony and cocktail hour music. We loved her wide array of music choices - especially the popular/modern songs. She even learned a song we specifically requested. Highly recommended!

I had the pleasure of working with Shelley for my ceremony and cocktail music. Through Shelley, I also hired a violinist and bagpiper for my wedding day music. I couldn't have been more thrilled with my experience with Shelley! She is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and so very talented! I greatly appreciated her help, patience and flexibility in helping me decide my wedding day music. My wedding day music was truly magical and I am just so grateful I found her! I would recommend Shelley to any bride/groom looking for a talented harpist - she truly surpassed all my expectations!!!
