CRAFTED Events Founder and Lead Events Specialist
The genesis of CRAFTED Events is rooted in Founder Krista Strahan’s passion for meaningful and extraordinary events. Krista’s event management career began thirteen years ago as a wedding planner. Her work with couples to create their once-in-a-lifetime experiences quickly made her realize that all events are singular opportunities to get it right – the FIRST time. Six years later Krista expanded into planning corporate events and has kept this same rationale.
Krista prides herself on being just a tiny bit OCD, and thus her dedication to managing the intricacies of hand-crafted, custom events is at the core of her business.

"Dear Krista! We spent our first anniversary thinking back to our gorgeous wedding and marveling at how easy you made it all! ... When people ask us what it was like to get married at Wave Hill we wax lyrical about the beauty of the place and then we tell them about the secret weapon – you!"
"I have had the pleasure of participating in almost a dozen events Krista has planned, many of them corporate gatherings, and I can honestly say that turning an event over to Krista is among the best decisions you will make."
"Smart, attentive, focused, fun, humble and creative are the words that come to my mind when I think of Krista. We had the opportunity to see her in action during a seven-day trip from Venice, through Copenhagen, to Stockholm on the Orient Express, and she was amazing. Always thinking ahead with her concern for the guests on the trip, but was so wonderful that she became friends with our entire group. An amazing lady indeed." See more...
