    Krista is the best!

    Krista is AMAZING! She is not only incredibly talented (go check out her website to hear her music!), but she's also kind, patient, and thoughtful. My husband had really hoped Krista could play one of his childhood favorites for his walk down the aisle (an old, Chinese pop song), and KRISTA DELIVERED. My husband and I were so moved that she was able to learn and play the song so beautifully. She also gave great recommendations for song choices for our ceremony. So many of our guests also expressed how much they loved hearing her play. I'm so happy we found Krista and had the chance to work with her. My only regret is that we didn't book her for longer!

    Amazing Repertoire of Music!

    Krista was wonderful to work with. She was very responsive and very talented. She has a long list of songs she knows how to play and even learned several songs for us! Our friends and family absolutely enjoyed listening to her play music on the day of the wedding.

    The only thing was we wished she was a bit closer so guest could hear her when the bridal party walked down the aisle. I recommend if you book her, have her place a bit closer to the guests so they can hear her beautiful music.

    Now I'm trying to figure out what other occasion to book her for so I can listen to her playing again. :p

    We love Krista Strader! Her music is amazing and so relaxing. The ceremony music at weddings with Krista is just lovely!

  • A Day Like No Other Wedding Planners

    I am a wedding and event coordinator and have worked with Krista several times - and I could not be happier about the collaboration! Krista is not only a consummate artist and master of her instrument, she is also professional, friendly, organized and always on time; she is flexible (she played the harp at a Beach Wedding - practically in the sand!!) and accommodating, and everyone loves her! I can't wait to work with her again.

  • Jen's Cakes Wedding Cakes

    Aw Krista, beautiful Krista. Not only incredible musicality and class but extreme professionalism. She is amazing. Krista can set a perfect mood for your event. Love is in the air when Krista is filling it with the sound of her harp strings.
