"Kevin and I appreciate everything you have done to make our day as special as possible. You have been a pleasure to work with!" --Liz and Kevin, June 9, 2019

“Thank you so much for playing such heavenly  music! You  added so much to my wedding!” –Meredith, August 2013 

"Thank you so very much for the beautiful music you played during our wedding ceremony & cocktail hour. "Here Comes the Sun" was absolutely perfect! We received so many compliments on our choice of harpist. We will forever recommend your services." --Chelsea & Nate, October 2018

“Thank you again for playing our wedding ceremony music.  I can’t tell you how many compliments you received that day.  The music was beautiful & perfect!”  –Stacy & Steve, October 2011 

"Shelley is amazing and so much fun!  We were trying to cut back on the budget for the ceremony music, so we decided to hire Shelley instead of a group of musicians.  I’d never heard a harp at a wedding before, and now I don’t know why more people don’t choose it–it’s the perfect instrument to stand on its own, always sounds good, and can play anything.  We didn’t want anything too “wedding” sounding (Pachelbel, Here Comes the Bride), and she had plenty of awesome suggestions–I walked down the aisle to “Here Come the Sun.” I wish I held other events I could invite Shelley to play at!"  –Chelsea & Steven, August 2012 

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you for not only being our harpist but also for working with me over these past few months to select songs, send me samples, lend me your suggestions when I was having trouble deciding, and making me feel like everything would work out perfectly.  You were hands down the best/kindest person to work with out of my 8 vendors.  The harp was absolutely beautiful and gave such a magical feel to our ceremony.  Right before walking down the aisle I burst into tears of bottled up emotions and as soon as I started walking down the aisle I heard harp music and it suddenly calmed me and I was ready for this next big step in my life.  Words can’t explain how thankful I am for everything you’ve done, let along the beautiful music!!" –Vicki, June 2013 

“The music was absolutely lovely!  The ceremony was my favorite part of the day and I really loved all of the songs you played.  Everyone raved about you!”  –Kristina, January 2010 

“Shelley, just wanted to thank you for playing such a huge role in our big day.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I received on your music.  Everything about it was perfect and we couldn’t be happier.  You were truly a pleasure to work with! A million thanks,  –Cindy & Randy, May 2013
