Dania, Thank you so much for the beautiful music and setting the tone for the wedding. I would certainly recommend you for weddings! Thanks for playing such as important role!
Thank you for being a part of our Pity of War concert last night. As always, you played very well. I’m sorry it was such a long time for you to sit with only the one piece to play, but I’m glad you were there! I appreciate your habit of excellence and attention to detail, and I look forward to the next time we have the opportunity to work together.
— Love in Christ, John (11.4.13)
Thank you so much for the beautiful music that you provided for our wedding ceremony! We are so sorry we didn’t have an opportunity to speak to you on our wedding day, but the entire day seemed to fly by! We truly appreciate everything you did to help make our day so special.
— Sincerely, Alicia and Matt (6/6/11)
Dania Lane played for my daughter’s wedding ceremony. Her performance was wonderful. She was in contact well ahead of the scheduled date with a full list of song suggestions. She provided a sample CD which was very helpful in our decision. Her advertised price was accurate. I have a second daughter, when it’s time for her wedding plans…I’ll be contacting Dania Lane!!
— Linda M. (8/21/10)
Dania Lane was very easy to contact, arrived on time, was familiar with our venue, and performed our requests beautifully. Our guests enjoyed her music. I highly recommend her.
— Reanne P. (9/5/10)
Dear Dania, Thank you so very much for helping us pull off our May 8th, 2010 wedding at the Houston Mill House. The music was fabulous and created such ambiance. In fact, we received many compliments about you and your fellow musicians. So kudos to you all!
It was such a busy day for both of us, that we are sorry that we didn’t have enough time to formally meet you all. But, rest assured, we will definitely refer anyone who needs an excellent harpist to go and seek you out.
— Kindest regards, Christina H.G. and Dan G.
Dania, I just had to take a moment to thanks you all for your wonderful work today. You were so responsive and so very musical. I couldn’t possibly ask for more from players than you gave. I think we made some great music together today and I know I found great joy in working with you.
— Thanks, Debbie (4/18/10)
Dania’s music was absolutely beautiful! She has a large repertoire and she was very accommodating when we made our musical selections. Dania even found a wonderful violinist for us too, after my fiance requested one. Our April 2010 wedding would not have been the same without her. Our guests made several comments on what a wonderful job she did and I couldn’t agree more. She was very prompt, attentive and right on queue throughout our ceremony. We also had her perform during our cocktail hour and it was definitely worth it. Her music helped set the mood and was the perfect volume since guests could listen while carrying on casual conversations. If you are considering a harpist for your wedding or event, she’s the best in Atlanta! I highly recommend using Dania. (4/10/10)

Dear Dania, Thank you so much for the beautiful harp music that you played at our reception at the Hilton Atlanta on October 27th (2009). Many of our guests enjoyed your music and it added a touch of class to their experience. Each year, our reception gets better – the 2009 reception was better because of you! Thanks so much for all you do.
— Dave Pipitione (Christian Brothers Services)
Good Morning Dania! I just wanted to thank you for playing at the Reed fundraiser at the Cornwell’s home. You play beautifully and we could listen to you for hours! What a special gift you have to share with others! Thank you again!
— Sincerely, Debbie Nowak (9/1/09)
We did not get a chance to meet the both of you but wanted you to know that everyone is commenting on the music. Boasting on how beautiful the harpist played and the simple elegance it added to the ceremony. That was very pleasing to hear as that was exactly what we were going for. Therefore, we would like to thank you both for your professionalism and your expertise in your craft. We would recommend you to anyone and will if the opportunity arises. Thank you again for assisting in making our day as beautiful as it was!

Athens is known as a musicians town…but to be honest most of the performers here could take more than a few pointers from Dania. The talent, professionalism, and overall vibe she brought to our wedding was absolutely immaculate. I can’t even begin to describe how pleased we were with the whole experience, from booking, to song selection, to the actual event. A true gem.
— Michael L.
Wonderful job by Dania who is certainly a talented and gifted artist. I would certainly recommend her to any one planning a special event.
— Mark S. (3/11/09)
Dania, I can’t thank you enough for the beautiful music at our wedding ceremony. Our guests are still talking about how lovely it was to have the harp music in the garden. Scott and I thank you very much, you are a true artist.
— Kellie (9/16/08)
Dania, Thank you for your beautiful music. My daughter’s wedding was even more special because of your talent. Any recommendations count on me.
— Betty N. (6/1/08)
Dania, Your performance was truly extraordinary, it is evident that you are a talented musician and it was an honor to have you at our open house this evening. I had several people inquire about you. I will share your contact information with them-I hope it results in a few referrals for you. If ACC hosts a future event, I will definitely be in contact with you.
— All my best, Bryan (2/28/08)
Dear Dania, Thank you so much for sharing your incredible talent as a harpist! We just could not have done it without you and really enjoyed getting to know you! You are so talented and so wonderfully willing to share your God-given talents with this church and our youth! You are fabulous! Thank you so much! You have been a special Christmas gift to the youth and to our church and to me.
— Faithfully, Allison (1/8/08)

Hi, I just wanted to let you know how beautiful the music yesterday was. Although I didn’t get to hear much of it, what I heard was awesome, and everyone at the reception was commenting on how incredible it was. I can’t wait to see the video where I can enjoy the music as much as everyone else did. Thank you so much for putting up up with the heat and the delay in the ceremony. It was a long day, but everything seemed to come together beautifully, and I really appreciate your patience with everything. Thank you for being there and for providing us with such beautiful music. If there is anything else I need to do, please just let me know.
— Thanks again, Susan Babb (6/10/06)
Dear Dania, Thank you very much for playing beautiful harp music at our wedding ceremony! We appreciate your flexibility in meeting our requests for specific songs as well as filling in the time delay before the ceremony. We will be happy to provide recommendations on your behalf to prospective clients.
— Thanks again and best of luck, Joanne
Dear Dania, Thank you so very much for sending your demo CD. You are a marvelous and gifted musician. Your music at my nephew’s wedding was perfect for that setting. For me, however, it was especially refreshing-each pluck (if that’s the correct term for how you play a harp) of a string seemed to resonate to my soul like a psychic massage. You do play beautifully. I hope that if you ever cut your own Cd or if you perform in Washington, D.C., you will put me on your mailing list. I’ve also taken the liberty of forwarding your name to friends in Atlanta.
— Appreciatively, Kirk (5/23/05)
Dear Dania, We just want to thank you for the lovely music you played at our daughter’s wedding. As always, you did an outstanding job. Everything sounded just as we had imagined. How wonderful to be so talented. Thank you again for being a part of Aubrey’s big day.

Dear Dania, We want to personally thank you for making our wedding so beautiful. Although we didn’t get much of a chance to talk with you or socialize-we enjoyed your music very much! Thanks for helping us make our wedding day the most special day of our lives.
— Mr. and Mrs. Derek Giedd
Dania, You have added a very special touch to our wedding day. You have such unique talents and we are blessed to have you share them with us.
— Thank you, Sherry and Scott (3/27/04)
Dania was great! Dania was early which made me not have to stress at the last minute waiting for her to arrive. We were forced to move the dinner inside but Dania was very accommodating even though she had to move her heavy harp. Her playing was soothing and inspirational…and her attitude and demeanor were just as pleasant. I will definitely request her specifically for future events.
— Cecilia Clark, Ritz Carlton

Dear Dania, I just wanted to thank you again for your amazing performance the other night. We have received phone calls and letters from family members raving about you and your music.

Dear Dania, Thank you for playing such beautiful music at Molly and Drew’s wedding. The harp made such lovely soft sounds for Molly and Drew and me and Kevin and our guests.

Again, thank you for providing such lovely music at such a lovely occasion as Molly’s wedding.

— Merry Christmas, Sheryl Danner
