Andrea was extremely professional and easy to work with. She worked with me on music selections and even learned new pieces for my wedding. Andrea showed up early and even began playing 30 minutes before our agreed start time since guests were already showing up and getting seated. She played for an hour, rather than the agreed upon 30 minutes! She played beautifully and without falter or breaks. She also accommodated my request to not wear any black. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!! Thanks so much Andrea!!

Andrea made our wedding even more memorable as most guests had never been to a wedding with a harpist and they thoroughly enjoyed the music and ambiance she provided. We had used a harpist for our daughters wedding in Athens, GA several years ago. Many thanks again for such a wonderful experience from a truly talented professional.

Andrea was amazing. I needed serious help choosing songs that would be appropriate for every part of my ceremony and she was so great helping me do that! We had several guests comment on just how gorgeous the harp sounded in the ceremony space and how amazing she was. I would HIGHLY recommend Andrea- she was so great to work with and her professionalism and talent were fantastic!!! Thank you for making our wedding beautiful!
