Frequently Asked Questions
Can you play outside?
Yes! However, there must also be a backup location in the event of inclement weather, as I will not play if there is a risk that my harp may be damaged.
Will the harp need amplification?
In most instances, no. Even for outdoor ceremonies/gatherings the harp typically does not need amplification. During a free consultation phone/video call I will ask you more about the venue and the size of your wedding ceremony and we can determine if amplification might be necessary.
Do you take special song requests?
Yes! If there is song that you would like played that is not on my list, please let me know! I love learning new pieces and I strive to make your day as special as I can. Please let me know at least one month before the ceremony about any special requests to allow the time for me to arrange and learn the music. Any special requests that are not given prior to one month before the ceremony may incur an extra cost.
How do you dress for wedding ceremonies?
I usually wear concert/formal black or navy blue unless otherwise requested. If I have an accessory or color that matches the wedding party, I am more than happy to wear it.
How do I book your services?
It’s very quick and simple! Go over to my Contact Us page and submit a form with your wedding date, venue, and best form of contact. If your date is available, I will reach out to you and set up a free consultation phone call or video chat so that we can discuss more details about your wedding and Music Selections. Your date will officially be booked once as I receive a signed copy of my musician contract and a nonrefundable 50% deposit of the wedding ceremony fee. The remainder of the wedding ceremony fee will be due on the day of the ceremony.
How far in advance can I book you?
Typically, most weddings are booked 6-8 months in advance. Booking early ensures my availability for event and secures current pricing for your event.
Is it possible to book you last minute to play for my wedding?
Absolutely. As long as I have no bookings and I am available on your event date.
What payment types do you accept?
I accept payments by personal check, cash, venmo, or paypal.
What should I expect on my wedding day?
I will be at the venue most likely about an hour before the wedding begins. At this time, I will find the point of contact that you listed on your contract and find out where I should begin to set up and I will collect the remainder of the payment balance. Prelude music will begin roughly a half hour prior to the ceremony start time to allow background music while your guests are being seated. I will continue to play prelude music until I see that the procesion is ready to begin. If there is a change in flow of the ceremony I will adapt the music as needed to help the ceremony go smoothly.
