Let Laura's enchanting harp music add elegance to your special day! Whether you are looking for elegant music for your walk down the aisle or jazzy background music for your cocktail party, Laura's captivating music and stunning harp can add elegance to any occasion!
I just had my wedding this past weekend, and Laura was amazing. Not only has she been extremely responsiveness during the months leading up to the wedding, but she has also been flexible and always put me at ease.
Without any direction from me or my husband, Laura showed up early, set up, played everything we asked for and played beautifully through our ceremony with 5 different song selections. She also seamlessly transitioned between our ceremony into our cocktail hour.
Guests raved about her, and it really added such an elegant touch to our wedding.
I am thrilled that we found her and would recommend her to anyone!
Laura Stokes was wonderful. From the very beginning, my mother and I had our hearts set on classical harp music for my wedding ceremony at Corpus Christi Church. My mom found Laura online and we were immediately drawn to her because she is a standout student at the acclaimed Johns Hopkins' Peabody Institute. From the very beginning, Laura was extremely easy to work with. Her prices were very fair, she is flexible in terms of timing and transportation, and, above all, her musical talent is extraordinary. We played a selection of classical music and I thought everything went off perfectly. I would recommend Laura to any friend getting married and have received nothing but positive feedback from guests since the wedding. Thank you, Laura!
Laura did an excellent job at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I definitely recommend her!
