Elena was wonderful to work with. I was so overwhelmed with all the last minute wedding plans, that I didnt even make my song selections until very last minute. She was very accomodating and understanding. She offered great selections to choose from with all of the usual favorites included. She and the harpist she brought sounded lovely and added so much to our ceremony. Her playing was beautiful!! I would highly reccommend her to anyone!!

Elena was exceptionally professional and courteous in our communication prior to the wedding (I was so busy the day of, I didn't get a chance to greet Elena in person). The music was equally excellent; I received many compliments and inquires about her performance. The rate is very reasonable and I would highly recommend this talented musican to any one looking to add some elegance and class to their ceremony.
