My husband and I had Esther play the harp at our wedding on the 20th of August 2016 on Heart Island in the Thousand Islands, Alexandria Bay, NY and we LOVED the services that she provided!

I hope this review conveys how thrilled I was with my decision to book The Elegant Harp for my wedding. Esther promptly replied to all my initial emails and calls to discuss the date and process.

I emailed her regularly as the date approached and had no problem choosing some beautiful songs from her list, as well as additional ones that were meaningful to me. Esther learned the new music quickly and was SO accommodating to all my ideas. I had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony in a Japanese Garden setting in Delray Beach. Esther arrived perfectly on time and set up quickly, making me feel very happy and at ease. Her harp skills are exquisite and I could not have imagined my ceremony without her there. I also got some really beautiful photos with her and the harp that are such wonderful memories from my wedding. I can't thank Esther and The Elegant Harp group enough for helping me make my day so special. Besides being very skillful and professional. Esther is uniquely friendly and warm. I highly recommend them for your wedding or special event, you will NOT be disappointed.

Esther (and her husband, who officiated our wedding ceremony) were absolutely amazing. Most little girls have a picture from an early age of what their wedding will be like.

Read More march, I almost teared up, as at least that moment was exactly the moment I had pictured my whole life--and it's one of the few moments of our wedding day that is still crystal clear in my mind, which is such a gift to me. Working with her was definitely one of the best decisions I made to ensure that our ceremony was perfect. On top of her skill on the harp, she was so easy and accommodating to work with. Esther performed at our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, which was a concern of mine due to a lack of coverage on the outdoor location. Esther and her husband arrived early and figured out a solution without any trouble (and no additional stress on us to try and help). She is a consummate professional, but also extremely personable--you really feel that she is so happy to be a part of your special day. I would recommend her again and again. Thank you for everything!

I LOVE playing for weddings! I have had the privilege of playing for presidents and royalty, been full-time harpist at Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach and on Celebrity Cruises, but your wedding is an amazingly special day, and it is exciting to be a part of it. I work with you to choose the music that reflects the two of you, so whether it's the Canon in D or Game of Thrones, your wish is my command! In the past 20 years I have personally played for over 1500, but each one is unique, because you are unique. I look forward to assisting you in making your wedding day all that you have dreamed it to be!
