Valerie was a fantastic addition to our wedding ceremony! From the first time I contacted her about playing for our wedding, she was very helpful and very organized when corresponding with me about details. Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautifully she played and how perfect the harp was for our wedding venue in Charleston, SC. I would highly recommend hiring Valerie for any event needs you may have! She was wonderful!
