We had a great experience working with Karen and having her play her harp at our wedding! The booking process was simple and easy - we booked Karen to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour. As we got closer to the date, we had a call with Karen where we discussed our song choices for each portion. Once the wedding day approached, Karen was on-time, set everything up seamlessly, and provided beautiful music that made our wedding that much more perfect. All of our guests commented on how beautiful her music was! Highly recommend!

Karen was fantastic! I hired her as one act for a corporate event with multiple performance spaces. It was a last minute hire, and she was accommodating in every way. Each song she selected was as pleasant as her overall demeanor. She's completely professional and personally very easy to work with. Her instrument is beautiful, and she was a wonderful addition to the event. I will absolutely be hiring her again.

Karen made my wedding ceremony incredibly beautiful. My guests are still complimenting her performance at my wedding this weekend. She has left a lasting impression on all my guests, and truly made my wedding memorable. Karen knew I loved Disney, and she made sure to play different Disney songs throughout the evening. She gave my wedding such a unique touch, and I am forever grateful. I highly recommend Karen!
