About Vendor

I am a professional harpist available throughout the Midwest and internationally for destination weddings. I provide elegant and romantic music for any occasion, from weddings to corporate events. I hold a BA in Music and a Master's degree in History, and have played for over 950 weddings. I have extensive experience with Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Baha'i, and Hindu services, as well as non-religious ceremonies. The music available includes the traditional wedding favorites as well as classical, popular, jazz, sacred, Irish/Celtic, Jewish, Bollywood, Arabic, folk, and holiday selections. You can choose the music I play for you from among the thousands of songs in my repertoire. Amplification is provided as needed - there is never an extra charge. Performing ensembles with multiple harps or with harp and violin, flute, cello, trumpet, steel drums, guitar, marimba, or vocalists are also available. I specialize in customizing music for each event, in collaboration with my clients, to make sure the music perfectly fits your theme, venue, and vision! Please contact me to discuss how harp music fits in your plans and will enhance your event.

Review by Kristina L.

WeddingReviewed on July 6, 2007From Fort Wayne, IN

Devon was very helpful and accommodating through our planning process. We were at the park early for photos and had assigned several groomsmen to assist her when she arrived - but she was already there and set up! As the guests arrived, they were greeted with the Her graceful presence and beautiful music was astonishing! The music filled the park like a symphony, and the timing of all the songs were perfect! My only regret is that we did not have a video camera dedicated solely for her performance. We cannot express our appreciation and admiration for Devon enough! Thank You so much!!!!! Michael and Kristina Esposito

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 20, 2011From Mason, OH

My daughter and I corresponded with Devon primarily through emails - she was always prompt and professional in her responses and we had no doubt that she would perform the musical selections my daughter requested and she was also very helpful in her suggestions. She arrived on time, was so nice in person and played the musical selections flawlessly as if we'd practiced many times. Thanks Devon, for making my daughter's wedding even more special - so many positive comments about the beauty of harp music for a wedding ceremony! Sincerely, Caroline Grieselhuber

Review by Jamie O.

WeddingReviewed on July 6, 2008From Nashville, TN

Devon was very helpful as we planned this wedding for Nashville from Hawaii. Her talent and assistance with planning the wedding music was everything we hoped for at our wedding. We were thankful for her being a part of our beautiful wedding day and having her talent shared with all of us. Just hearing her harp play during the prelude to the wedding created the perfect ambiance for our special day. We would most definitely recommend her for other weddings as she is very talented and professional. Thank you Devon. Aloha, Jamie and Rob
