We hired Alix to play harp during our welcome, part of the ceremony, and the cocktail hour of our wedding. Alix was easy to work with, highly professional, and we loved her work! She's a very talented harpist - and we received numerous compliments after our wedding ceremony saying she was incredible, with beautiful technique and poise. The harp itself seated behind our ceremony area looked amazing!! Highest recommendations for this superb musician!
