Vibrant Celtic Nu-Folk
Mary-Kate and her harp couldn’t have been more lovely a detail in my outdoor wedding at Fort Hunter, Harrisburg, PA. Not only does Mary-Kate have amazing talent, her very presence was almost angelic and an absolutely perfect addition to ANY wedding. She was beyond professional to the point of becoming intimately involved in her music and everyone at the ceremony. She was such a pleasure to work with and everyone could really tell she immensely enjoys her work and making each bride’s wedding day just beautiful. She made sure to check in with me every step of the way during the process before the wedding and offered her help and advice in such a polite and considerate manner. It was just fun working with her and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a charming way to add that special touch to their wedding or any event.
I had the opportunity to meet Mary-Kate of Seasons when she played at my bridal shower and I immediately knew that I wanted one of the Seasons musicians to provide the ceremony music at our wedding. My fiance and I communicated with Mary-Kate via email and then met with Mary-Kate and Mary-Grace at their home prior to the wedding to finalize plans. Both Mary-Kate and Mary-Grace were enthusiastic, gracious, and eager to fine-tune a program that fulfilled our dreams. They played samples of traditional as well as modern songs and helped us to choose just the right selection. We felt that they really understood our wishes, and the process could not have been easier. On the day of the wedding, Mary-Grace arrived promptly and had another family member with her for assistance (our ceremony site was a long walk from the parking area). The music was beautiful and provided just the right touch for our lakeside ceremony. Guests remarked how lovely the performance was, and my fiance and I were delighted with Mary-Grace’s professional demeanor. It is apparent from working with both Mary-Kate and Mary-Grace that they love performing for others and participating in special occasions. They offered heartfelt well-wishes and sincere congratulations. I would not hesitate to recommend Seasons for weddings as well as any special occasion. Truly delightful!
They sounded wonderful during the ceremony. I didn’t get to hear them during cocktail hour because of photos, but everyone says they played beautifully. Thank you for adding something special to our wedding!
My wife and I were married at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, and Mary-Kate Lee’s beautiful harp performance was included in the wedding package. Before the wedding, we asked her to perform the Evenstar theme from Lord of the Rings as the guests were taking their seats (the movies were the reason my wife and I were introduced, and it’s a beautiful song). She knew it by heart already and played it excellently, setting exactly the atmosphere we had hoped for. We also asked for the classic bridal march, which as you may know, has sustained notes because it’s usually played on an organ. Harps don’t do sustained notes, so a good rendition can be difficult. Mary-Kate Lee came through with the perfect rendition. Better than I’d even hoped. Thank you for helping make our special day everything we ever wanted it to be!
We originally heard Seasons at St. Luke’s church concert a couple of years ago and were impressed. We asked Mary-Kate to play the harp at our wedding; which was held at Allenberry by the Yellow Breeches under an old oak tree in the ancient Celtic tradition. Mary-Kate was amazing. Our guests are still raving. They said she made the ceremony so beautiful. Without exaggerating, several said they wept. We can’t thank her enough. The booking and arrangements were very easy. Allenberry had a platform for her. She took care of herself. We didn’t have to do a thing, but listen to her music. Every wedding should be so blessed with her floating sounds. She helped make our ceremony sacred. Thank you.
What a lovely group of musicians! They were so friendly and easy to work with. They were wonderful about including all of the music that we wanted as well as giving good suggestions when we weren’t sure what to pick for preludes, etc. I wanted to include my brother (an amateur pianist) in the wedding and they were so gracious in getting him involved, setting up group rehearsals, etc. Overall, a wonderful experience. And the harp is such a perfect instrument for a wedding!
Mary-Kate is such a talented musician. She played her solo harp at our wedding ceremony. We received so many compliments on how intimate the harp made the ceremony feel. She was so easy to work with and gave us wonderful recommendations on what music selections to use, all of which turned out to be perfect for our day. I would recommend Mary-Kate to anyone.
My husband and I celebrated our son’s wedding at a rehearsal dinner in Lewisburg, PA. It was at a farm with the musical group Seasons performing. They provided beautiful, elegant music for our event and also played some patriotic tunes (as it was held on July 4) and even played Happy Birthday for our grandson, whose birthday was that day. They were very professional, showing up on time, flexible, willing to do whatever we wished, and kind. Many of our guests commented on the beautiful music. The group is so easy to work with and I hope that someday I have the pleasure of using them again!!
My husband and I were thrilled with our choice of working with Seasons for our ceremony. Mary-Kate was easy and friendly to work with; she responded quickly whenever we contacted her, and was a joy to work with when we met to plan our music. She is clearly an excellent musician, and was very thoughtful as we talked about the pieces we were considering for the ceremony, patiently playing different options for us. The day of the ceremony the band played beautifully and our coordinator thought they were a dream to work with. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a string ensemble, and would love to have an excuse to hire them again!
We were highly satisfied with the service! The music was beautiful and Mary-Kate was willing to accommodate anything I asked. She was easy to work with and very flexible. Our guests commented on the beautiful music . Thanks for making our day so beautiful!
My husband and I are both musicians, and when we first saw Mary-Kate play harp at the PA Renn Faire, we were most impressed and contacted her shortly thereafter to play at our wedding. Mary-Kate provided both the ceremony and cocktail hour music. She was quick to respond, professional, and her musicality is second to none. We even requested a song for her to learn, and she sent us a recording of it after the wedding!
For our ceremony we just had Mary-Kate playing the harp. It was absolutely perfect! It made our ceremony so intimate and just overall wonderful. She did an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier. Her talent really did give our ceremony the personal and intimate touch we wanted. I would highly recommend her! She also played for our cocktail hour & our guests raved about her and how talented she was.
We had the honor of having Mary-Kate and her family play at our outdoor wedding ceremony in the Hershey Gardens. From the moment we reached out to Mary-Kate, you could feel the warmth and love that she puts into her music. Planning the wedding from three hours away, we were very thankful to have someone like Mary-Kate. She was quick to responding with emails and even offered to have a practice session with our family friend whom was singing a few solos for us. Our guests can’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed listing to their beautiful music. We highly recommend them to perform for any occasion!
Mary-Kate was so sweet to work with. She helped me pick songs and made suggestions that fit the overall theme I wanted to achieve. We used her for both the ceremony and the cocktail hour and I wish I had been able to hear more of her playing myself! What I did hear during the processional, ceremony, and recessional was great and so many guests commented afterwards how lovely the music was. They especially loved when she played light “pop” songs they recognized. One thing I really liked was she sent a sample CD for me.. this helped me convince my now husband how great an addition an harpist would be to our day. I also really enjoyed that she was quick to respond via email and overall just great to work with. I highly recommend her and I cannot wait till we get our wedding DVD so I can hear some more of her music.
I was blessed enough to have Seasons Music play at our wedding. We had the harp and hammered dulcimer and many guests commented on how lovely and unique the music was. They were so sweet and professional and even offered some ideas for songs to use when I asked. I would recommend them to anyone who would like to have classic and beautiful music for their wedding.
My husband and I were fortunate enough to have Mary-Kate and her brother Peter play a harp and hammered dulcimer duet for our ceremony. Mary-Kate had been recommended to my mother, and we were absolutely thrilled with them! When I first met Mary-Kate during our initial meeting, I found that she is both an amazing musician and a wonderfully sweet and caring person. Both during the initial meeting and during our finalization meeting, she took time to really listen to my goals, interests, and questions about our wedding music. She offered wonderful suggestions for song selections that I was uncertain of, and she was happy to experiment with contemporary songs that we wanted to blend in to our ceremony. They even coordinated with a family friend to do a hymn during our ceremony. We received countless compliments regarding their music after the wedding. Thank you so much to Mary-Kate and Peter for helping to make our wedding such a wonderful event!
From the moment my daughter got engaged, she knew she wanted to plan a more sophisticated and graceful wedding; and what better way to achieve this than through music! We were fortunate enough to find Season’s Music. Mary-Kate made my daughter’s dream come true! From the first contact to the final good bye on the wedding day, Mary-Kate was a tremendous help. She was very responsive to emails, answered all our questions, made suggestions where needed, and provided a sample CD. Her exceptional talent gave the wedding ceremony just the right touch of elegance. We couldn’t be happier!! Our guests were moved by her awe-inspiring music and couldn’t stop talking about how “princess like” or regal it was.
Mary-Kate with Seasons Music was wonderful to work with. She got back to my emails and questions very quickly and was willing to work with other musicians to make my wedding ceremony and reception exactly what I wanted. She traveled to my venue which was a few hours from her home and I was very thankful for that. She played the solo harp beautifully at the ceremony and everyone told me that the music for the cocktail hour was beautiful. I heard many complements about her and would recommend Seasons Music to add an extra touch to your special day!
Mary-Kate played the harp for our wedding ceremony and it could not have been more perfect and more beautiful!! Working with Mary-Kate was so easy. She responded to e-mails and my requests quickly, and even learned some songs I requested! She played a variety of classics and beautiful songs, but also some modern songs. I had several guests tell me that they loved hearing songs they knew played on a harp and that it sounded so beautiful. I would work with her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone/everyone I know! She was awesome and the solo harp was the perfect music for a wedding ceremony!
Mary-Kate added the sweetest touch of sophistication to our wedding. She is an amazing woman with awesome talent! She played everything just as I had envisioned and even learned new songs! She displays a true love for her talent, and is great at what she does. I would highly recommend her for your wedding.
From the moment I met Mary-Kate, I could tell she’d be great to work with. Mary-Kate is a sweetheart with a smile on her face at all times and very pleasant be around! Mary-Kate performed the ceremony music for my wedding and she was outstanding! Guests were raving about how great she was that day and I’m still hearing compliments about how enjoyable she was to hear. Not only is she very talented, she’s very personable as well. She was easy to contact through e-mail and by phone and willing to help answer any questions. She was very flexible about scheduling time to meet prior to the event to help pick music. I had inquired about suggestions for songs a few months prior to getting together, and received a response within 24 hours with many great recommendations. When getting together, Mary-Kate was very helpful by playing samples of songs to help make selections easier. She was even willing to learn a song she hadn’t previously played before for our unity sand ceremony and it sounded awesome! Book her if you want a truly unique and beautiful sound for your wedding day! You won’t be disappointed!!!
Mary-Kate played the harp during our ceremony. She was simply outstanding. She was so accommodating to our requests and we loved that she played modern songs, and not just classical music. She can learn to play just about any song and is more than willing to do so. All that aside, she is just such a heart-warming, lovely person, and we feel blessed that she was part of our special day. As a musician myself, I had high standards for our wedding musicians. Mary-Kate exceeded all of our expectations.
From the first contact with Seasons Music, they were right on the spot of what we wanted and needed in ceremony music. We had a wedding of 2 traditions coming together and were very open to new song selections. They even learned a new song for our recessional a week before our event. They came to our rehearsal and also played for our cocktail hour. Traditional and “out of the box” songs too. Two instruments were the harp and dulcimer hammer. Reasonable price for outstanding service. We got a lot of “kudos” from our guests and would definitely use them again for another social or workplace event.
I had seasons music play at my wedding on August 7, 2010. They were everything I expected and more. We had an option of one harp, two harps, or a harp and hammered dulcimer. We had a harp and hammered dulcimer which go very beautifully together. They gave us a pre-wedding session of what songs we would want. They showed us some traditional and non-traditional songs. We went with a little of both. No problems communicating via phone or email. They even came to our rehearsal. Many complements came about seasons and the music they played at our wedding. I would definetely recommend them and would plan on having them play again for different events!
