  • I felt so dejected after having to postpone my big wedding reception until next year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. My fiancé and I still wanted to get married on the original date as it marked our 15th year anniversary. It was very stressful coming up with a plan B as we weren't even sure if it was going to be possible with the state's restrictions. Having Renee play our ceremony and dinner music was the easiest part of the process. She was timely when responding to emails and had my trust immediately. She sounded amazing in person. Every song was so beautiful. We had access to the patio at the restaurant where our wedding took place, but I did not want to leave and miss a second of Renee's playing. My guests had a lot of fun trying to guess the names of the harp arrangements Renee played. All of my guests complimented the music. Overall, Renee provided a classy, intimate, and elegant ambience that would not have otherwise been present at our wedding. I wish I had another fancy event ... Read more

  • In the middle of a global pandemic, Renee made our intimate civil ceremony wedding absolutely wonderful! She was a joy to work with prior to our special day and brought her beautiful music to our venue with such elegance. Renee was so responsive and thoughtful throughout the planning process and delivered exactly what she promised. In fact, she exceeded our expectations! We were so happy to have Renee join us and our immediate families at our venue overlooking the Chicago River. The music were played beautifully and our guests absolutely loved the Bollywood songs! Such a lovely surprise for them. We would highly recommend Renee for future special occasions. She is incredibly talented, considerate and kind. Thank you so much, Renee! You were marvelous!

  • I am so happy I hired Renee for my wedding. She was such a pleasure to work with. Renee made everything so easy from start to finish. I had several songs I requested and she fulfilled every request. She went above and beyond what I could have asked for on my wedding day. She is so talented and every song she plays is beautiful! My guest loved her. I would highly recommend Renee!

  • From the start, we knew we wanted a live musician at our wedding ceremony. We had discussed different options, but ultimately we decided that we wanted to have a harpist. One of the reasons that Renee stood out to me is due to the fact that she has dozens of samples of her work on her You Tube page. I loved the way she sounded and knew that she would be the perfect addition to our ceremony. Pre-wedding email correspondence was very clear and helpful. On the day of, she fully lived up to all of our expectations. Both myself and our guests enjoyed her music. You will not regret the decision to hire this talented harpist for your wedding.

  • Renee was a fantastic choice for our wedding ceremony. She has a great selection of traditional and non-traditional music. Renee made planning a breeze - she was responsive and helpful. We received so many compliments on her music and the meaning that it emphasized in the ceremony. Ultimately, she made our ceremony that much more beautiful and was pleasure to work with.

  • Much of her repertoire is on YouTube - it was so helpful to listen to the arrangement of each song prior to the day of our wedding! She was so easy to work with and helpful selecting and arranging our songs. The harp was such a beautiful accent to our ceremony. The day of the wedding we completely forgot to hand her the remaining balance due and she could not have been more gracious about it! We mailed her the remainder before we left for our honeymoon. Highly recommend!

  • I have never hired a musician for their services before my wedding day. Renee was great at communicating with me, especially with all my silly questions. She will travel to a wedding site and won't charge you and arm and a leg because it's not within a 5 mile radius. She was professional, played beautifully, and was sincere. After my ceremony, several guests asked me for Renee's contact information. I would definitely recommend her, and would hire her again!

  • I knew I had wanted to hire a harpist for our wedding on 5-27-17. I had contacted a few different musicians in the Chicagoland area. Some were difficult to get a hold of, others were too expensive not Renee. She was so quick to respond via email and was so efficient and very professional. She was reasonably priced too. We had Renee play for our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. The harp is such a beautiful instrument both look and sound. She provided a nice memory to our wedding. Renee is so talented and was great to work with. She has a YouTube channel to help with song selections. My only complaint is I wasn't able to enjoy Renee during cocktail hour due to taking pictures! But I know my guests really enjoyed her! Thanks, Renee!

  • Easily giving five stars for Renee, who played for our daughter's wedding this past weekend. She played just beautifully for the ceremony, and cocktail hour afterward, providing instant elegance to the entire event. Her playing was gorgeous, and when there was a small change in procession vs. what was planned, she seamlessly transitioned into the next song so it was completely undetected to all but me. All aspects of dealing with Renee were extremely professional, as she responded to my initial inquiry and all e-mails afterward very quickly and thoroughly addressed all questions. If considering a harpist for your special event, we highly recommend Renee. She is a class act who was a delight to work with.

  • Renee played our ceremony music and cocktail hour music at the Garfield Park Conservatory. She was so sweet and accommodating, and even learned a song for us. She's a great value and I can 100% recommend her. She was one of the only vendors that I enjoyed working with. Definitely recommended!

  • When my cocktail hour musicians fell through, I was scrambling to find a replacement only 3 days before my wedding! So, I decided to look into hiring a harpist and the first person I came across was Renee Wilson. I called and she immediately answered and to my luck happened to be available for my wedding! Renee is extremely flexible with her variety of repertoire and very professional. I am now so happy that my cocktail musicians fell through, because otherwise I wouldn't have had Renee play during my reception dinner! Everything happens for a reason.

  • Renee was great to work with, and the harp music was so lovely! I didn't hear all of the prelude music, of course, but I heard from guests that it was great; and I was overjoyed at how great our processional, ceremony music, and recessional sounded.

  • Renee was great! She was very prompt in responding to my questions via email. She has a variety of music listed on her website that she can play, and let me know that she can learn new songs as long as she can acquire the piano music for them. Renee was very patient with my requests for crazy songs that had no piano music, and we ultimately did find a modern rock song that she did manage to play beautifully on her harp! Thank you so much Renee!

  • Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful music, and highly professional. Worked with our non-professional vocalist in a very accommodating fashion. Provided music for the ceremony and cocktail reception afterward and used both our selections and appropriate ones of her own to set a lovely atmosphere.
