Laurel was absolutely amazing and perfect for our ceremony! She was great to coordinate with leading up to the wedding to be sure we had all the music we wanted for the ceremony and offered great suggestions when we were needing some insight for song choice. She is such a talented harpist and her music was beautiful. I would highly suggest having Laurel perform at any event or wedding, our wedding ceremony wouldn't have been the same without her!!
Response from Harp Music By Laurel:
Thank you, Emily! I'm so glad that I could be a part of your beautiful wedding. I wasn't familiar with "Birds and Ships" until you requested it for your entrance, but I enjoyed arranging it for harp and thought it was a lovely choice. May you and Ryan enjoy many happy years together!
I can not express enough of how pleased we were with Laurel. She was very professional and her singing added that needed touch for our ceremony. We chose Laurel over the many other Harpists that bid for our wedding mainly because she was accommodating, she sent an audio of her playing the song We requested for our wedding and made adjustments accordingly. Other artists spent a lot of time letting us know what they “don’t do, can’t do” or asked us to do tasks that we were attempting to hire them to do. Laurel was an obvious choice, she was a joy to work with and if we EVER need a harpist she is our first choice. Thank you for what you do.

Response from Harp Music By Laurel:
Thank you! I’m delighted that I was able to be a part of your beautiful wedding. Your heartfelt vows to each other brought tears to my eyes and I loved having the chance to sing and play your special song. Many blessings on your journey together.
Laurel was amazing. Music was perfect and compliments our ceremony beautifully
I cannot begin to tell you how absolutely wonderful Laurel is to work with. Her music is beautiful. We were so very thankful to have her be part of our daughters wedding.
We really enjoyed having Laurel at our open house event. She was lovely and extremely talented.
All the guests commented on the lovely harpist and her music. It was amazing and we are so glad she was available. Thank you for making our wedding music so wonderful!
I hired Laurel as a harpist for my wedding ceremony. We wanted to hire all small business owners for our wedding vendors and Laurel was good. She showed up on time and played for our wedding ceremony. It was an outdoor wedding (Dallas Arboretum) so it was hard to find musicians who would fit in a remote, garden setting. A harp was perfect for the setting and Laurel did well.
Laurel did an amazing job at my grand opening! She was incredibly talented and professional!!
Laurel not only learned a new song that I asked to be played, she completely set the mood for the whole wedding. It was so fun to be able to just listen to the music throughout the ceremony. If I ever need to hire a harpist, it would be her every time! I already recommended her to my venue so they can give her info to another bride and groom and make their day as special as mine.
