I was so lucky to find Ruth just a month and a half before the wedding (probably bc my wedding was on a Sunday) after my previous harpist cancelled on me last minute after I had booked her a year prior. Ruth was so incredibly easy to work with. I sent her a list of songs, she learned most of not all of them for me, despite the fact that she didn't already have experience with them. She was on time, professional, courteous and very low maintenance. (Unlike the other harpist who was very difficult to work with (Sylvia Kowaluski). From what I hear, the music was wonderful (even tho I was walking). I asked a handful of people including musicians who were present.
