Harpist, Rev. William Reister’s Response:

Thank you so much, Nicole. It was a lovely wedding and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to provide harp music for your ceremony. It was great to have your son and other family members and guests tell me how much they enjoyed the music too! I've always believed that the harp is an "intergenerational" instrument. God bless you with "every good and perfect gift from above". Pastor Bill
