We used gigfinder.com to find a violinist for our Cape wedding.  The website was pretty easy to use, and it’s nice to get a list of guotes/bids all lined up.  In remember that a harpist/violinist showed up in our bids, so I bet you’d have luck with them.

Check out the New England Conservatory and the Berklee school of music.  They both have websites where you can request students, and I know one or the other has harpists.  They should be amazing musicians and cheaper than non-students.

I’ve also booked through Berklee, found some great musicians. It was my understanding that it’s not just students, professors and other local musicians use it.

We got married in January in Sturbridge, MA and used a harpist for our ceremony. The name is the Gilded Harps, and the lead harpist Feliz Pomeranz was ours. She was absolutely fantastic: communication was great, she played exactly how and what I requested, she’s very thorough, and has the most stunning harp I’ve ever seen.

The website is http://www.gildedharps.com and as a musician myself, I found their rates to be extremely reasonable. You can have solo harp (what we did) or harp+other instruments. 

Also, I discussed the possibility of inclement weather and what they would do if there was a storm. I was told that a harpist would be there… no matter what. Obviously if we cancelled due to the weather that was our problem, but we weren’t going to be stuck without ceremony & cocktail hour music!
