Krista was PHENOMENAL! The theme of our ceremony was elegant but nerdy and Krista captured that to a T. We asked her up front if she would be able to learn some songs for us, particularly a few from the Legend of Zelda, our favorite video game series. We gave her a list of 10 songs, with a top 5, thinking that perhaps she would be able to arrange and play one or two for us. She did 8 and has since added them to her repertoire. We were SO excited! When I began to walk down the aisle and hear the music, I got chills and thought I was going to cry because it was so perfect. Many of our guests commented on how great the music was as well, both during the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Working with her was a dream. Our day wouldn't have been as special without her.Sent on 11/03/2016
Harpist Krista Strader's reply:The feeling is mutual, Fiona and Patrick! I had such a blast learning and adding those Zelda tunes to my repertoire, you are my official "Zelda Couple":) I loved being a part of your awesome and unique special day with the video game theme and wish you two many blessings and many more hours of gaming together in the years ahead, yay!

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.
