A PERFECT DAY...what every couple dreams of

The following is an independent review on Wedding Wire from a groom married this past summer, in July 2011.  He and his bride had a dream wedding day with a mountaintop ceremony on Crystal Mountain where I provided the harp music for the ceremony and cocktail hour.  I remember it well.  I've included his review below, photos of their lovely wedding and a link to a video montage from their fabulous videographer on Vimeo. If you want referrals from me about who will work their hardest for you to make your wedding day all you have dreamed of just keep reading...or ask me.  I believe I have worked with the best vendors ever!  And you can see it on the faces of the brides and grooms on their special day.  My goal is to do everything I promised you I would do and to relieve you of any stress that's within my power to do so. 

From the groom, Aaron Kruspe: "This may sound cliché to most but our wedding was truly a magical experience.

From the initial planning to the final execution, everything flowed seamlessly. Consequently, all of the vendors for our wedding were deemed the best in their field. Susan is one of them that far EXCEEDED our expectations.  Like all engaged couples, we began researching and interviewing people for certain parts in our special day. Six months prior to the wedding, we found Susan and she invited us into her beautiful home to perform a heartwarming and sensational preview into the future of our wedding day event.

Susan is truly a warm and caring person. We sincerely felt like she was part of our family.  Initially, we were stunned by her expressed sincere interest in the success of our wedding day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Susan would call to confirm with us about the wedding schedule and also meet with us and our wedding planner for the pre-wedding final preparations.

The wedding day was flawless. Her music was beautiful as the wind carried her notes throughout the Cascade Mountains. My friends and family complemented us many times during and after the wedding with regard to Susan’s dazzling performance and ability to relocate her impressive Harp on top of a mountain.

We can offer no higher praise than to say that Susan truly is an artist whom is a pleasure to work with and comes highly recommended for her professionalism.

Thanks again, Susan!"

 There's nothing like being above the clouds and feeling you can reach out and touch Mt. Rainier. I truly enjoyed playing my concert sized harp at 7,000 feet and hope I am asked to do it again someday!
