Can I use additional instruments at the wedding?

Some couples wish to use more then one musician. If this is the case, I typically hire the other musicians for you. Harp sounds wonderful with many other instruments, including, duo’s with flute, violin, cello, clarinet or trumpet, trios with one high instrument and one low one for example harp, flute and cello, or, harp, violin, and cello, and of course larger groups of up to six players are possible. Northern Michigan has many fine musicians because the Interlochen Arts Academy has drawn them here. I also work with some fine singers, and sometimes couples request a vocal duo.

Can I use a family friend to provide some of the music at my wedding?

Some people want to be able to utilize a family member or friend to perform and this is also possible, but I feel less confident in guaranteeing the final product when I work with non-professionals. I also often have to charge for rehearsal time with the family member or friend.

Can you play for the wedding reception?

Many people hire me to play part or all of the reception, either alone or with one or two others. One of my favorite combinations is to use a flutist who also doubles on saxophone. This grouping allows for lots of versatility in the styles, (from classical to jazz with everything in between, including a little Kenny G). As a solo harpist, my background music repertoire runs around seven hours of different selections.

When are you paid?

During the process of booking a wedding I receive a deposit to secure the date. I ask to be paid the remaining balance preferably two weeks before the wedding date. I know that once you are married, you will want to focus on your guests, not this detail. Please download the Wedding Music Planner PDF at the top of this page for more details.

How are you paid?

A deposit will secure your wedding date and time. Please mail the balance two weeks prior to the ceremony. See the Wedding Music Planner PDF at the top of this page for more details.

What are your costs?

Please call me at 231-922-3546 or E Mail me at with your wedding date, time, exact location and personal requests (i.e. duo, trio, voice, trumpet, etc.) for a price quote.

Do you have a musical sample of the harp wedding selections?

Yes, by selecting the music page of my website you can listen to a CD “sampler”. Enjoy!

I’ve given you a lot of information that may or may not apply to your particular case, but it saves a lot of questions in the long run. Please contact me for any help that I can provide. I long ago lost count of the number of weddings that I have participated in, but it must be well over one thousand by this time! Best wishes as you work toward this special day and thank you again.
