We hired Monika to play ceremony music and cocktail hour at our wedding this past weekend. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and replied back to e-mails/text messages promptly. I realize how extremely busy musician schedules are so I really appreciated how quickly she was able to respond. We did have a playlist of songs we wanted for the ceremony, but we kind of trusted her judgment for the cocktail hour. She did an absolutely lovely job with everything, and even gave us advice on what songs would and would not work well for the ceremony.
Lastly, I want to add that it rained on our wedding day, and we were having an outdoor ceremony. The sky was already pretty overcast when the ceremony started, so I was expecting Monika to want to pack up and move everything inside to protect her instrument. Instead, she stuck it out and played throughout the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Monika, if you are reading this, I hope your instrument is okay!! Thank you so much for being part of our day!!
Monika is a professional who has a ton of experience on making your wedding the perfect day!

Response from Monika Vasey, harpist:
Ted, thank you so much for your kind review! We were so lucky the rain held off. I kept my cover nearby just in case but I was able to keep playing until almost the very end of the cocktail hour before I had to cover it up. Thanks for being so understanding! Congratulations on your marriage and I wish you many happy years to come! Best always, Monika
