“Hiring Joanna to play the harp at our wedding reception during cocktail hour and dinner, was one of the best decisions we ever made! Our guests cannot stop talking about how talented and amazing she is! We first heard Joanna at the Bridal Show and were wow’d by her special talent. We knew that we wanted to add this unique element to our wedding and so we called her to set up a meeting a few months later. From the first meeting, Joanna proved to be caring, kind, attentive, friendly, super talented and provided great song recommendations for what she thought our guests would enjoy. Joanna has 1000s of songs that she can play on the harp and is constantly updating her list with new hits! Joanna learned some of our favourite songs for our wedding day, which added a special and personalized touch. On the wedding day, ourselves and our guests were so excited to hear her play and she sure did impress us all with her energy and enthusiasm! Joanna took the stress out of planning by asking the right questions, helping us to choose songs, calling our venue in advance to discuss timing and setup. We highly recommend Joanna to play at your special event. She is so passionate and truly loves lighting up the world with her music. On a personal level, Joanna is a down to earth, kind-hearted human being. She posed for pictures with our wedding guests. Everyone loved her! Thank you so much for everything Joanna. You are truly wonderful!”

“Joanna played the harp at our wedding ceremony and throughout our cocktail hour and dinner service at the Eglinton Grand, Toronto and she was absolutely amazing!! Everyone loved her and was amazed at what Joanna Jordan could do with her harp and the variety of music that she could play!
We loved meeting with Joanna before the wedding and hearing her play. It was always a fun time. We were so lucky to have had her play at our wedding and definitely feel like she added to the experience of our guests. She is a lovely person and great to deal with as well. Definitely one of the best choices we made for our wedding”
Lisa and Alex La Civita, Toronto Harpist Wedding Client
I wanted to take a moment to share with you my thoughts regarding your participation at our wedding. Hiring you to play the harp at our wedding was simply the best decision we made.
We used multiple vendors for different parts of our wedding, which we were very pleased with. That having been said, guest after guest came up to us that night with positive feedback on the harpist (you) – more than anyone else. Even today when talking about our wedding with those that were there, we still have people specifically commenting on you and the wonderful job you did! So Joanna – THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!”
