"Something Borrowed Harp and Strings truly made my wedding ceremony unforgettable. All of my wedding guests could not stop talking about the music, and how much it added to the ceremony. Jenessa is INCREDIBLE and so easy to work with. She offered so many great song options, as well as giving me the option to choose any song I wanted for her and her quartet to learn and play at my wedding. They were so professional, always responded quickly, and so reasonably priced! Honestly it was one of my very favorite parts of my wedding. It was worth every cent!"


-Michaela R.
