Monika provided the music for our ceremony. Although we had never actually met; she was very professional and flexible to our needs for the day. During the ceremony, she played The Lord's prayer; it's the one piece of music I actually remember from the day. It was absolutely beautiful!

No wedding ceremony is complete without the sweet, serene music of a harp! I have known I would have a harpist at my wedding since the first time I heard the instrument many, many years ago, and choosing Monika was an easy choice because of her extreme talent as a trained harpist. Monika is a talented harpist who is versatile and graceful. She made the ceremony elegant and ethereal. She played songs that were unique to me and my fiancee, adding a personal touch to our ceremony that we will never forget. I highly recommend Monika Vasey for your ceremony music needs!

Monkia is amazing! First and foremost, her music during our outdoor wedding ceremony was beautiful. She was a pleasure to work with and provided a lot of assistance to us in selecting our ceremony music. She understood the feel we were going for and really helped make our ceremony special.

Monika was a pleasure to work with. Since we were several states away from where our wedding was, we were able to Skype with her to work out the details of what we wanted. Our wedding was in December and it snowed throughout the day. Despite the weather, Monika was there on time and played beautiful music while guests arrived, during our ceremony, and for our cocktail hour. She was even able to adjust Canon in D so a specific part of the song played just as I walked down the aisle with my parents. Everything was perfect and I'm so glad we chose Monika to be a part of our wedding!

I would highly recommend Monika Vasey if you are looking for classic, beautiful music!
We hired Monika after reading all of her excellent reviews and speaking to her over the phone. She was kind, professional, incredibly easy to work with and totally delivered at the wedding. She actually went so far as to learn a few extra songs and practiced with a friend of ours so he could sing while she played! Everyone at our ceremony was blown away. What a wonderful person and musician!

We hired Monika to play her harp at our ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful. Everyone commented on how perfect the music was and its elegance. I found Monika's information on Wedding Wire and emailed her with my fingers crossed since my husband and I decided to hire a harpist last minute (about a month before the wedding date - it was the only last minute decision we made, thankfully!). Monika was so accomodating and very friendly. We are very happy that we chose her to play the harp. She dressed for the occassion and her harp is gorgeous. Her prices are great and she was a pleasure to work with. She arranged the arrival/set up with the Hotel Event Coordinator and I didn't have to do a thing! We recommend Monika to anyone and eveyone looking for a harpist. She is very talented and we were extremely pleased with our ceremony music.

Monika is extremely talented and I was definitely not disappointed with quality of service she provided on the day of our wedding. One of my groom's favorite songs is "Eternal Flame" by the Bangles (what can I say he is a child of the 80's) and she bought the music and learned it on the harp a few months before the wedding. That was the song that was playing for my entrance and it sounded absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend Monika Vasey and we would love to have her play at any of our future events!

Monika was a consummate professional. She was very good about getting back to us in a timely manner (even before the contract was signed) and she made the process of booking her very easy. We worked out many of the details over email and Monika was very acommodating. She even went the extra mile to find a solo harp version of a song we requested. On the day of the wedding, she showed up early and was quickly set up. We didn't interact with her much because we worked out the details earlier and we had a lot going on. But, it was great to not have to worry about her. She was a pleasure to work with and we would hire or recommend her in a heartbeat.
