Couldn’t Imagine My Wedding Without Her

We hired Kristen to play the harp prior to our wedding ceremony, during the ceremony, and during the cocktail hour at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
While I only had the pleasure of hearing her during the ceremony, I can tell you that I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to play for us. Kristen learned a specific song and coordinated with an amazing vocalist for my walk down the aisle. When the doors opened and the flood of music hit my ears, I felt at peace. I took my first steps confidently and serenely into the room, toward my husband to be, and I couldn’t have imagined a better entrance.
So what about before and after the ceremony? Well, guests came up to us to congratulate us during the reception and every one of them commented on Kristen. They raved about her. Many had never seen a harp up close and were mesmerized by her playing. They said she added a peacefulness and a sophistication to the event, which really matched the venue and the style of wedding we were aiming for.

I couldn’t imagine the wedding without her. And she was so easy to communicate with. I cannot say enough positive things about her.

If you are looking into music for your wedding, I wholeheartedly recommend not only choosing a harpist, but Kristen specifically.

Romancing the Romance

Picture this: A young couple in love, an engagement party with pink roses, pink ‘bubbles’, beautiful foods, 100 guests, sunshine and to tie the romance all together an angelic woman, Kristen, playing the harp beautifully and delicately in the background. Not church music but current, hip, and incredible.
Thank you for creating the atmosphere Kristen! Your talent is amazing!

Beautiful Music

I couldn’t have been any happier with Kristen. I’m so glad she was able to play at my wedding. She’s very sweet and professional. What I liked was that she’s open with music preference that I suggested. I hired Kristen for my cocktail and she was able to fill the outdoor courtyard with her beautiful music and really impressed my guests. I highly recommend!

Best Harpist in GTA

Kristen is the utmost professional. Her talent as a harpist resonated with me and our guests at my daughter’s wedding recently. She played such beautiful music and I highly recommend her to play at any of your functions.

Beautiful music and a great experience for our guests!

We have asked Kristen to come back and play at our charity event for a few years and each time we can count on her. She is always on time, very presentable and most of all, very pleasant to be around. Her music is beautiful; she prepares a very nice selection of music which makes a great backdrop for our event. I would recommend Kristen without hesitation. Thanks for making our event so elegant and classy every time!

Beautiful music renditions

Kristen was very talented and played beautiful music for our wedding. My husband and I wanted to have a harpist play to have a classy feel to our ceremony and cocktail hour, and Kristen delivered. She played every song well and had a vast library of old and new music, which suited both parts of our wedding. Several of our guests asked for her contact and we gladly gave them Kristen's information. I would recommend her music and services! A bit slow to respond to emails but wasn't a big issue.

From the second we sat down and Kristen played the first few notes of Cannon in D Major, we knew we had to have her at our wedding, and I'm so happy we made that decision. We had Kristen play for our ceremony and cocktail hour at the Doctor's House. Kristen was super easy to work with - she was quick to respond to e-mails and showed up on time (in fact, I think she was a bit early!) for our wedding. Most importantly, her music was absolutely beautiful. From classics like Cannon in D Major, to epic movie soundtracks like the Jurassic Park theme song, to modern songs from our favourite bands like Iron & Wine, Kristen did an amazing job in setting the mood and her music alone moved me to tears during our ceremony. Thank you for being a part of our special day Kristen!!!

Kristen was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. We had her play the harp for our ceremony and it was stunning. Everyone commented about how beautiful the music was and how she set the tone for my entrance! She is also such a kind person and so easy to work with. She was quick with her communication and accommodating with her meeting days/times. She also understood what music I was looking for! I'd refer her to anyone who is looking for a great harpist/musician for their wedding day for that little extra touch! Thank you again Kristen, you're the best!!
