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. :pSent on 12/11/2019

Krista was an amazing harpist for my wedding ceremony in November 2018! She played all the selected songs that I chose. She was even able to play a mash up melody that I found on YouTube as I walked down the aisle. ISent on 01/14/2019

Exceptional and truly a dream!
Krista was a delight to work with, a true professional and a breath of fresh air. All our correspondence took place mostly via email where we discussed all music options and the logistics of the day of. She was very responsive and attentive to any questions we had. Besides making this experience seamless and professional, her talent is exceptional (she truly sounds like a dream). She made our day so perfect and easy and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. She definitely exceeded our expectations and we are forever grateful for making our day beautiful and memorable.Sent on 11/27/2018
We love Krista Strader! Her music is amazing and so relaxing. The ceremony music at weddings with Krista is just lovely!
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.
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.
