I hired Christie for my wedding and she was amazing. She sent me recommendations on the music for ceremony and cocktail hour and then also helped me pick specific songs for when I walked down the aisle, for the bridesmaids walk, etc. She played "Video Games" by Lana Del Rey for me walking down the aisle and it was incredible. Received a lot of feedback on how fun the cocktail hour music was. Would highly recommend!

We loved having Christie as part of our wedding day! The booking process was so simple and she provided great song recommendations when I had questions. She played during our ceremony and cocktail hour and did a fantastic job. You should definitely book her for your big day!

Christie was so great to work with on our wedding day! From arriving on time, to being able to adjust to changes I made to the schedule last minute, to creating absolutely beautiful music for our ceremony, she was great! Even before the big day, she was super easy to work with, very helpful in picking songs, and was always quick to respond to any question I had! I cannot recommend enough!

Christie Bates exceeded my expectations on my wedding day! Not only did she perform a custom song for me to walk down the isle, but she provided tons of recommendations for this indecisive bride! Highly highly recommend her as your violinist to make your wedding day that much more special! Wow!! I can’t say enough about how amazing Christie sounded during our ceremony. She did such a wonderful job playing the songs, transitioning between songs, and working with our officiant/planner to coordinate the music. We got so many compliments on her and we would recommend her to anyone!
