She is recognized as a definitive source for wedding ceremony etiquette and has published over 40 featured articles in both bridal magazines and newspapers on the art of weddings. Melody plays all of the standard wedding repertoire on the harp and you will have no limitations in wedding music with her excellent harp experience. She is available as a harpist and wedding vocalist if you desire both. To honor family heritages, wedding harpist and vocalist, Melody uses English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Polish as spoken narrations, poetry and lyrics in wedding ceremonies or events who desire this. She is a trained cantor for the Catholic, Episcopal and Lutheran Mass Liturgies. Her beautiful wedding and reception harp instrument combinations can be heard on the Harp Audio page of this site.

A FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: "Can harp do all of the wedding ceremony music alone?
The answer is, "Yes". The harp can play anything an organ or piano can play and do it with an elegance that is even more distinctively memorable..."


"We would like to thank you for the beautiful music you provided for our wedding and reception. We could not have been happier with the quality of your performance. Also, we certainly appreciated all of your hard work in preparing for our bilingual celebration. We want you to know that we received many compliments on your music. Several guests even stated that it was 'the best music they have ever heard at a wedding.' -- Tammy and Javier Farach

"Your music at my daughters wedding was marvelous -- one could say even heavenly. The family and friends all said it was the harp that really made it incredibly beautiful, and I have to agree." -- Elinor S. Miller

"Your talent was beyond what I expected, you have such a beautiful voice and I'm glad that "Fly with Us" was sung at the ceremony. -- Cathy Drake-Hillyard ("Fly with Us" is an original prayer that Melody set to music.)

"As I now go back in time, and listen to the music tape, and perhaps listen for the first time, we all realized that it was you and your music that made everything perfect." -- Deedie Souders

"Brian and I sincerely thank you for making our wedding day even more special by the joy of your lovely voice and incredibly beautiful harp playing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your performance!" -- Roseanne and Brian Tomporowski

"It's unanimous! Everyone loved the music at my daughters wedding reception. I particularly liked the German song and appreciated the special effort you took to customize its performance." -- Montye Conlan

"Thank you for preparing the beautiful music for our wedding service and reception. You did a tremendous job, and we're still hearing praise about our music."-- Ruth and Art Cartes

"Just saw the video of Melissa and Jim's wedding. I had asked them to record your music and it was exquisite. I wanted to thank you for all your hard work, guidance and interest..." -- Judy Monaco

"Just a little thank you for helping make our celebration be a success. The music was delightful." -- Pat Walter

"Again, Roz and I wanted to thank you for your lovely presence and playing during our party. So many people have called and all remarked on how wonderful the harp music was and how it contributed to a most enjoyable evening." -- Carol and Roz Platig

"Our guests told us how wonderful it was hearing you play the harp. People enjoyed your voice even more. Greg's Aunt mentioned how beautiful your voice is. She has a Master's Degree in Voice from Columbia and she doesn't give compliments like this often, hardly ever. Thank you also for helping us with the rehearsal and getting everybody organized." -- Gabriele Sessions (Melody had to speak in German and English to coordinate this wedding rehearsal.)

"I wanted to let you know how much everyone enjoyed you coming. I am still receiving comments. It was a wonderful day. I am thankful for your special talent, and the loving spirit and heart from which you share." -- Conya Mobley

"My thanks for a job well done. Your Apex group was very 'user friendly.' As Gwen of Sprint Corporation pointed out in her correspondence with both of us, you and your group really did save the night. I think the guests also stated that loud and clear by requesting an 'encore' which is highly unusual." -- Florida Entertainment Services, J. David Williams, Vice President
