I loved your harp music at my wedding! Also, I had several of my guests say that your playing really enhanced my ceremony and added to the beauty and emotion of it. Some people said that they were so moved (including me) that they actually cried! Thank you so much for your beautiful harp playing that made my marriage ceremony so memorable!

Thank you so much for being a part of our day. It was wonderful to meet you. The music was absolutely beautiful and we received so many compliments on it. You were amazing throughout the entire process during booking, picking music and providing a beautiful addition to the ceremony.

I can not say enough about Mary King!! I just loved her so much! She is so kind and so helpful and makes your ceremony perfect. She even learned a new song for me. If you're looking for a harpist you need to pick her! I'm telling you, she's amazing!

Mary is so pleasant and a joy to work with. She plays beautifully and has a great selection of music to choose from. My wedding guests really enjoyed listening to her. I highly recommend Mary to anyone looking for a harpist; she is professional and organized. I feel lucky to have found her.

I found Mary through Wedding Wire while looking for a ceremony musician. She was great to work with and played beautifully for our outdoor ceremony. Mary was very responsive when it came to discussing and planning the big day; she even came to our church a few weeks out from the date so she could see the location and how she would be set up. We enjoyed the mix of modern/classical music options she played. It was a pleasure working with Mary and would recommend her services for anyone looking to add a special touch to their event.

Thank you so very much for playing so beautifully at Caydence's baptism. It was extra special to have you there and the music enlightened everyone. It was so delightful, calming and serene to hear your songs. It really made the atmosphere. A few of my relatives said they noticed the difference in the room once you were finished. They truly enjoyed hearing the harp! It is amazing what music does to us all! Thank you again. It was a pleasure also meeting you in person. I am excited to have you play again at our next function! You were so professional, thoughtful, and so sweet. Thank you again for everything!

Mary King is a very talented harpist, one of a kind, that I had the pleasure of meeting last year at a charity event. I recently hired Mary to play at my niece's wedding 2 weeks ago. My niece asked if Mary could play at her cocktail hour at the Renaissance Hotel in Providence, RI. It was her wedding gift.

Mary played beautifully throughout the cocktail hour and added an elegant atmosphere. She plays classic as well as contemporary music. Everyone enjoyed her music immensely. I would highly recommend Mary King for any special occasion.

*a little side note... I went over to thank Mary as she was packing up after the cocktail hour was over and all the guests were seated and waiting for the Bride and Groom to enter the reception. I told Mary that my niece's only regret was that she missed hearing Mary play due to picture taking, etc. As my niece and her groom were rounding the corner getting ready to be announced, Mary immediately sat down and started playing "Hallelujah" solely for my niece and her husband... a beautiful moment we will all remember.

Mary King played fantastic music at our wedding ceremony and mingling reception. The music which I chose from the tune list of her website was classic, Celtic and modern. And each of them sounded perfect!
Also I should tell about the personality of Mary. She is very, very responsible and scrupulous. It's very easy to be in touch with her; she called me even from her holiday in Arizona to discuss some details. Also she came to Brown Faculty club where we had our wedding a day before our ceremony to see where to park, how to get the place, etc. in order to avoid any delays and troubles on the day of wedding. I really like Mary as a talented musician and great person! Her music made our wedding beautiful and elegant!

Mary King is the most kind, talented and professional musician. We were over the moon with having her play at our ceremony in Narragansett, RI. Mary has a large selection of tunes and is flexible and accommodating. Her talent is top notch and her music is breathtaking. Mary is extremely responsive, as well - she was always in touch with us throughout planning and was punctual and easy to work with. Her beautiful music made our ceremony so special and we loved working with her!
— Robyn 09/15/2013 (quote from Wedding Wire)

We absolutely loved Mary! She worked with us to select appropriate music for the wedding ceremony and even learned a brand-new piece especially for us. She chose the music for the cocktail hour and it was perfect. I highly recommend Mary for her friendliness and talent.

Mary was wonderful from start to finish. She was a huge help when it came to suggesting songs and transitions for various parts of my wedding ceremony. The music was beautiful! She reached out early, checked back as my wedding got closer, and made sure to confirm the day before. While I only had a brief moment to shake her hand, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mary to ANYONE!

All we can say to Mary is thank you, thank you, thank you! It was a pleasure working with her and we want to thank her for being a big part of our wedding day. Mary's tunes transformed our garden ceremony into a fairytale that was peaceful and serene and even more than we could have hoped for. Her attention to detail to make sure the tunes were "just right" to set the mood were impeccable and the entire ceremony was just truly splendid and heavenly, not only for us but also for those in attendance. We highly recommend Mary -- she made our wedding day so special!

Mary is the BEST -- the music was beautiful, everyone enjoyed her. She played like an angel, heavenly. I can not say enough about her. The wedding was beautiful! But her playing the harp even made it more perfect! Thank you SOOooo much, Mary! Great job!

Mary was a delightful performer for my small wedding. She arrived on time, and her presence and humor was much appreciated, down to her magical green aloha slippers! I would highly recommend her if you want your wedding music to be special and to enjoy a talented musician. She played a few seasonal tunes that I requested that are not commonly played in the United States, and she played them well. You will be very happy with Mary King!

Mary played at our wedding on 10-10-10 in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA. We booked a small chapel and we were looking for quiet and romantic music. Mary played her harp for our wedding guests and our wedding party. We consulted with Mary prior to our event and she gave us ideas and planned a perfect wedding for us. Her suggestions were ideal and made our wedding more outstanding than we ever could dream of!!!! I would highly recommend her for your event.
Wendy C, 10/10/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Manchester, MA

Mary was everything we had anticipated and more! She helped us with song selections for our wedding and was extremely professional. Her talent on the harp added the perfect touch to our ideal day. Mary was very prompt with emails, phone calls as well as her arrival for the ceremony. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for that touch of elegance she will be sure to provide with her music!
