Experience the ultimate in luxe wedding ceremony music with the classically elegant vibe of award-winning international harpist Kristie Smith.
Extraordinarily Elevated Wedding Music
Serving Death Valley and the United States
Imagine the looks on your guests’ faces when they notice an intricately carved harp at your wedding and expect to hear angelic Classical music—but instead, the air is filled with the theme song of your favorite movie together, or a popular artist you both love.
This is the surprising and delightful customization that I’ll bring to your unique Death Valley wedding, showcased in the beautiful music of the harp.
With a doctorate in harp performance and years spent studying with the world’s top harpists, I blend Classical elegance with a contemporary vibe. The classics, like Etta James and Louis Armstrong, flow effortlessly from my fingertips, with a lush sound like you’ve never heard them performed before. But I also completely customize the music for each wedding by creating brand-new arrangements of current top hits, indie artists, and even video game and anime theme songs. Whatever you love listening to, I can play!
And I can't wait to meet you!

Kristie is incredible. She was totally professional and equally friendly--we felt like we'd know her for years. But most importantly she plays beautifully.
She was great in developing a playlist with us and even learned a handful of songs that are special to us to make our wedding day all the more magical. Thank you again, Kristie!
We could not be happier!!!

Kristie was absolutely phenomenal in every single way. She was attentive to our different musical interests... Kristie delivered a setlist and performance that went above and beyond. At every step of the planning process she was communicative and open to suggestions. She sent us music she thought we might like just so we could review it and make an informed decision. Just incredible.
The processional I had chosen for the ceremony was one of a kind and Kristie played it perfectly. Nearly all the music we requested was either fairly complex or required learning new repertoire entirely and Kristie did just that. We were so thrilled and happy with the results.
All our guests and even our photographer were amazed we had a harpist and kept saying how wonderful she was. We got married in Death Valley National Park at a remote location in the park and Kristie brought her harp all the way out to us! I couldn’t have imagined today without her.
Prior to the wedding I was an anxious mess, and even though we were hundreds of miles away, she provided encouragement over text. I felt confident knowing she would be the one performing for our wedding. She was an integral part of our day and I cannot recommend her enough! Our wedding was everything we had hoped and that is, in no small part, due to Kristie.
An integral part of our wedding day!”

My husband and I are beyond glad we hired Kristie to play at our wedding.
Her playing added so much to the overall tone and vibe... our special day would not have been the same without her.
It was so perfect. Thank you for everything!
