Virginia did a wonderful job for our wedding ceremony and dinner music. With just a brief conversation prior to the event we were able to plan everything. The music was beautiful and so appropriate for our event. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a musician for their wedding.

I am so happy we selected Virginia to play our ceremony music! She was so easy to work with from the very beginning. Our consulting session with her was so helpful and she had wonderful suggestions for the flow of our ceremony. She even proof-read my programs to help me make sure I had everything listed correctly! The harp sounded so lovely and just made the setting of the ceremony so beautiful and classic.

Virginia played the harp for our ceremony and cocktail hour and It really was the most beautiful harp playing I have ever heard! It really made the ceremony and started the celebration off right. She did a beautiful mix of classics with more contemporary pieces that seemed to make everyone that much more nostalgic! We had the opportunity to see her home studio and beautiful collection of harps which was just amazing - she gave great suggestions for pieces during the ceremony when we didn't have anything specific in mind and was even willing to learn a special piece for us "A Thousand Years" because it meant so much to us!

What a sweet surprise to receive your review today. I'll never forget your beautiful wedding! It was nice to play for you at my studio so that I had a chance to get to know you a bit and learn the music you love. I've so enjoyed playing "A Thousand Years" ever since. Thanks for that and your kind words! All the best to you.

Virginia was absolutely wonderful! I played in an orchestra all through college, so I had a lot of opinions about the musical selections for my ceremony. I wanted a particular song for my bridal processional (the chorale from Jupiter) that Virginia had never played before. She found an arrangement and learned the selection specifically for my wedding! Also, Virginia was very helpful at the consultation in assisting me in narrowing down my other selections for the wedding. She has so many great ideas, and her expertise is unmatched.

The harp music set the ideal romantic tone for the wedding ceremony. Not to mention the fact that Virginia's harp looked stunning in the chapel. It was almost as if it was another piece of the decor! I just recently received the video of my wedding ceremony and could not be happier with Virginia's performance. She was able to improvise to make sure that each selection went on for the appropriate amount of time (no awkward pauses or times where music is playing and no one has anything to do but stare at each other). A professional musician attended my wedding and commented to me on what a wonderful job she did. All and all, I could not be happier with having Virginia as my ceremony musician.

Virginia so wonderful to work with for our May wedding. Very early on in the planning we had to change our date. Luckily she was available on our new date and was really understanding of our need. Virginia was very responsive to trading emails with me to get an idea of what I was looking for. That info translated into a very collaborative private session in her home to finalize our play list. She used my concept to present a ton of great ideas and we worked together to build the set list. She also recommended a violinist to us to help enhance our experience. Overall, she was just lovely to work with!

We had Virginia provide the ceremony music for our small wedding (35 people) at the UVA Chapel in Charlottesville. She did a wonderful job. I had given her a detailed list of the songs I wanted to hear and she managed to play almost all of them. I got so many compliments on the ceremony music from all of the guests. She is a true professional and her harp is beautiful. We set up the gold harp on stage next to the preacher and it looks amazing in the ceremony pictures. Thank you Virginia!

Virginia certainly set the lovely mood of the ceremony for my daughter's wedding – her harp music was perfect! We realize that our florist made the garden look lovely, but Virgina and her harp so created the romantic atmosphere that we all loved. We were lucky (since we are not Charlottesville locals) that we met Virginia at a bridal show at the Omni and my daughter and son-in-law immediately feel in love with the sound of her harp music. We always felt very confident that she would enhance the beauty of the wedding ceremony with her talent and she so delivered and made the whole process enjoyable too! We highly recommend Virginia - you can contact her at www.VirginiasHarp.com, (434) 361-1051 or virginiasharp@ntelos.net

Thank you so much for your review. What a beautiful and intimate wedding it was. You were so sensitive to the tastes of all sides of your family. I enjoyed playing your requests and learning a few new pieces that you found! It was fun to see the sparkle in people's eyes when I played something that touched them personally. Unforgettable, really.
