If 6 stars was an option I would have given her 6. Perfect.
Shelley was fantastic!! She bounced between piano and harp for our small wedding of 15 guests. She kept the room going at all times and created a very warm environment for everyone. She is really sweet and very easy to work, and it was a nice bonus that she is very talented and plays multiple instruments. Highly recommended!! Thanks Shelley! Amanda and Patrick - Tiverton, RI
Shelley, you are stunning, so talented and have such a sweet spirit. Thank you for blessing us with the gift of your music. I would highly recommend you to everyone! You were a joy to work with, prompt in getting back to me and all of our guests loved your music as well! Thank you!
Shelley Otis literally made our wedding ceremony. She is a vendor that feels like a friend. She goes above and beyond and will personalize your day and will certainly exceed your expectations. What an amazing person she is, that I now feel confident calling her a friend! I recommend her with 1000000 stars !!!
I had been working with Shelley over the phone and through email months before the wedding. She was very nice and happy to learn new music choses that we had selected for our ceremony. I wanted some songs that were new this summer and Shelley learned how to play them and did a wonderful job! It was beautiful and elegant and exactly what I had wanted. Even my uncle who doesn't normally give compliments said he enjoyed the harpist and violinist very much. They were one of his favorite parts of the wedding. He especially appreciated that they played a couple of Italian songs :-). Thank you Shelley, you were great!!
Wedding Cocktail Hour
Shelley was amazing, she was so professional and accommodating from the planning all the way through to the performance. She was punctual, open minded about song selection and extremely talented on the harp. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a special event. So many guests commented on how elegant and beautiful the music was and how she added to the ambience of our cocktail hour. Thank you so much Shelley!
Shelley Otis was a wonderful addition to our wedding in September at Rocky Neck State Park in Connecticut. We were able to hand pick harp music that we wanted for our ceremony and loved that we had a diverse choice of songs and genres. She has a very informative website where you can listen to her incredible music. She was very kind, accommodating, and professional. Her music was one of our favorite parts of the day. It added such a wonderful atmosphere. We did not have a microphone for our officiant and she lent her portable amplifier to him, saving the day. We would HIGHLY recommend her. Absolutely delightful.
We hired Shelley Otis for our wedding's reception and cocktail hour. She was extremely professional was already familiar with our venue, Linden Place (Bristol, Rhode Island). Having the capability of being able to play both harp AND piano was part of the reason that we hired Shelley. She was accommodating to our special request of having her accompany a vocalist. Shelley learned a few new songs for our ceremony and our guests commented on her elegance and wonderful musicianship. Her communication via e-mail was both prompt and courteous. The variety of songs on her song list (jazz standards, classical, Disney, Led Zeppelin) makes Shelley a great choice for any event!
Shelly played the harp at a comittal service forr my mother. She is a stand alone performer with great talent and poise. I contacted her several months prior to our scheduled event and she complied with all my requests. You will be delighted to have Shelly at your function and know that she will not let you down in any way. Paula
A pleasure to work with throughout the process and nicely varied repertoire (plenty of modern standards that were fun to hear on the harp). Highly recommended.
Shelley was terrific! She was professional and very accommodating. I wanted harp background music during the dinner at my daughter's wedding. She had a varied and extensive playlist and performed our many requests beautifully. Her flexibility and ease at the wedding was truly appreciated, since one never knows the exact start and finish time. I highly recommend this delightful, accomplished musician.
Shelley was wonderful! She was very prompt in getting back to me throughout the planning process of my wedding and performed beautifully! I have heard so many compliments from my guests- everyone loved the music...it was perfect!
Where do I begin? I booked Shelley to play harp at my wedding ceremony several months in advance. We started emailing back and forth and had an inperson meeting where Shelley played songs for us to hear. The music was absolutely beautiful and the harp was magical, calming and heavenly. I can't thank Shelley enough for the countless emails I sent her with various requests ranging from getting her opinion to sending samples of music (I lived 3 states away from her). She was SO easy to work with. I so highly recommend Shelley, don't look any further!!!
Many favorable comments from the group. Contemporary music was refreshing. Shelley was professional, elegant in manner & appearance, and delightful to work with. Highly recommend!
Shelley performed at our wedding ceremony on October 2nd. She is an amazing harpist. She was a pleasure to deal with before the wedding too. She was very professional and she performed beautifully. Almost a week later I still have guests telling me how beautiful she played. We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Shelley for our wedding. Stacey and Steve Waldemer Old Saybrook, CT
