Catherine is the best harpist i know!Reviewed on 9/04/2013 Suz C
Catherine did an amazing job at my reception, she played all the songs beautifully!!! I couldn't have asked for a better harpist. Her energy and friendliness are exceptional. She worked with me over the phone and email because I live in Chicago and had my wedding in Florida, and was a great help with choosing the songs and telling me about the organization and processional schedules, I had no idea of any of this! She also helped me with the ceremonies that go on during the wedding (I chose a wine ceremony and it went great). Catherine is very knowledgeable and a great artist, she even played a song that was not in her repertoire, a very unique song to me and she played it flawlessly, I highly recommend her, she is the best!
Beautiful ceremony musicReviewed on 8/14/2013 Joyce S
I first heard Catherine's music when I had gone to a bridal/wedding convention in Orlando. I heard her music and fell in love, and kept her card. When it came time to choose a ceremony musician, it was a no-brainer...my fiancé and I always knew we wanted actual musicians rather than DJ/loudspeaker music for our ceremony to add a more traditional and personal touch. After looking at her website we chose to have a duo of harp and violin. It was a WONDERFUL choice; the music was absolutely heavenly. So many of our guests gushed about the ceremony music afterwards, and our families felt that it was so moving and really added to the emotion and "feel" of the ceremony. All of our music selections were executed perfectly, and everything was beautiful. In addition to the actual music the day of the event, I really have to commend Catherine on her professionalism and kind personality. Although we got married in FL where I grew up, my husband and I live in NY so it was not easy planning an out of state wedding. In addition, I have a hectic work schedule with odd hours, which made planning difficult. However, in regards to planning our ceremony music, Catherine made it incredibly easy. She was always prompt with every email, and patient with all of my questions. She also was understanding with the need for me to plan so much in advance in comparison to other brides, due to a strenuous work schedule the two months before my wedding. Catherine emails out a sheet with music "suggestions" for different parts of the ceremony, however she has such a large selection of songs that it was easy to choose selections in our taste and style. We loved how personal all of our music selections were. Thank you Catherine Way, for beautiful, touching, AMAZING ceremony music. It made our ceremony complete. Thank you!
Outstanding Harpist!Reviewed on 12/18/2012 Rita B
Catherine Way is a professional harpist whose gorgeous music graced our daughter's wedding and entertained our guests during cocktail hour. She is a lovely person who treated us like our wedding was the most important event in the world. We worked closely together to select the music, and the overall effect was positively magnificent. She answers e-mails / phone calls in a timely manner, and really tries to please. Without a doubt, I would use this vendor again!!
Catherine is such a wonderful person and talented Harpist! Her music was such a beautiful addition to our special day! All of our guests loved her music. She played for our ceremony, cocktail hour and our reception. Catherine was so lovely and wonderful to work with. She truly made it feel as though our wedding was as important to her as it was to us! When we told other vendors, before our wedding, who we had as a Harpist they all raved about her as well. Highly recommend!!!
I took the time to look through musicians for our ceremony and after contacting a few vendors I was not convinced with, I bumped into Harpstrings, Inc. When I listened to her samples, I knew I wanted to hire her. All the other ones I was recommended were super overrated, pricey and sounded pretty amateur. I was really happy I found Catherine's page. She was super easy to get in touch with, and had many options for us to choose from. We also asked for music outside of her repertoire, and she was able to do it for a little extra as she had to buy the partitures and learn the new songs. It was totally worth it. I was really happy with the result and she really added to the ceremony and cocktail hour. The performance was more than we could have imagined. I definitely recommend Harpstrings, Inc.
Not only is Catherine a spectacular musician, but she was so incredibly organized and gave us wonderful recommendations throughout the entire planning process. We had a very small, intimate wedding, and Catherine provided so many great suggestions to ensure the process was smooth. She spent a ton of time with us, explaining all the details of her services and how she would be performing at the wedding. On the day of, she arrived early and stayed late, and provided such sweet melodic music to our garden reception. She was friendly and personable, our guests loved it! She is just perfect!!

Nice musical touchReviewed on 12/27/2014 Sara R
Catherine Way's harp playing made for lovely background music at our wedding. I heard from guests how much they enjoyed her music before the wedding. I felt like a princess walking down the aisle while the harp played 'here comes the bride'

I was extremely happy with Catherine Way. She played beautifully, knows a huge number of songs, and was very helpful. She wasn't just helpful with the music selection, but also with her knowledge of how ceremonies usually run, as well as knowing the venue. She's been in business for of 20 years, so her advice was great!

I highly recommend Catherine to any bride who wants a professional and talented harpist for her wedding.
Beautiful Harp MusicReviewed on 9/22/2013 Ashley f
Catherine played beautiful music at my wedding ceremony in March, 2013. She was very professional and offered lots of great advice for our ceremony. She was always available to discuss music specifics and would always respond to my emails very promptly. Catherine was very flexible with the music selection, and played all of my requested music which included Disney music, current radio music and traditional music. The beautiful music really brought the ceremony together and gave it the touch of elegance I was looking for.
The perfect elegant touch!Reviewed on 9/10/2013 Lacey G
Catherine helped us capture our dream wedding with her amazing talent. She played while our guests were seated and throughout our ceremony. She brought elegance and made our ceremony unforgettable. She has a variety of songs for anyones taste from classic to modern. She also set the tone for our cocktail hour which helped our guest mingle while we took photos. I highly suggest having her be a part of your big day. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.
A memorable DayReviewed on 9/09/2013
I had the pleasure of working with Catherine on my wedding day. She is very understanding and helpful as she walked me through everything from song selection to timing of the ceremony. Catherine is not only professional but very caring. She was always willing to explain anything I needed clarification on. The day of my wedding it began to rain an hour or so before the ceremony, and Catherine remained calmed and it helped me to remain calm and I just remember her saying how beautiful I looked. All in all if you decide to book Catherine she will be a great addition to your ceremony and make your day one to remember! She will add an element of elegance, serenity and uniqueness. She's not just a harpist she's an excellent musician and a caring person. If you're looking for someone with talent, professionalism, a love of music, and a heart for the bride and groom Catherine Way should be your choice for your wedding day!

Everyone at my wedding commented to me on how wonderful the ceremony and reception music was! Her ability to play almost anything from classical to modern pop songs is impressive.
Mother of the BrideReviewed on 9/08/2013
Catherine Way is very professional. She was quick to respond with recorded music to ease selection. We were delighted in her selections and all of our guests were equally thrilled to hear her play. My daughters wedding was outside without access to electrical to we were initially at a loss about wedding music. Catherine was able to fill the need and added to a beautiful ceremony. Thanks Catherine!
BEAUTIFUL LADY AND MUSIC! MADE OUR EVENT EVEN MORReviewed on 11/06/2012 Ruth G
Having to plan a wedding in 2.5 weeks for my daughter, was no easy task, but, the sheer joy of having Catherine as our harpist from the first e-mail contact through the day of the wedding, she made my daughter's wedding even more special with her lovely music. She is a top notch professional who we would highly recommend to anyone considering harp music to make your ceremony even more special. Who wants piped in cd when you can enjoy this class act. We love you Catherine. Thanks so much.
Great HarpistReviewed on 11/05/2012 Kam W
Catherine played the harp at my ceremony at the Omni on Oct. 13 which helped set the tone. She was professional and provided great service the day of the wedding. She offers a wide variety of song choice which was very helpful to my husband and I in picking all our ceremony songs.
