I can't write enough good things about working with Betsy Fitzgerald. When we had our consultation, she was very patient and played everything from regular wedding music like here comes the bride to really different music I have never heard before. She also gave us some great ideas including how we could include some family members that were not in the wedding party. At the wedding, she worked great with our wedding coordinator and had a ton of music when we ended up having to start a little late. She also let us take pictures with the harp (and let my dad try to play it!) I highly recommend Betsy to any bride looking for a a wonderful musician who really cares about your wedding!
