I had the incredible honor of being part of a beautiful wedding this past August. The couple requested to have me play at both their church ceremony and their reception for a knot-tying ceremony.
Their Catholic ceremony required a carefully curated playlist and delicate handling and research, including securing approval for the songs from the priest. The knot-tying ceremony was a fun challenge, with a blend of selections ranging from classic Jazz to Pacific Islander!
Regular check-ins and musical previews built anticipation and excitement, ensuring their day was as magical as they'd dreamed. On their special day, I arrived prepared with two outfits, to be sure I would match the tone of both events.
Here's what the bride had to say:
We have so many lauditory words for Christie, and yet none of them seem adequate to describe her and our wonderful experience working with her for our wedding in August 2023. We asked Christie to play at our church ceremony and also at our reception for a knot tying ceremony. She not only was very familiar with Catholic wedding ceremonies, but also developed a perfect list of songs to play. She even contacted the priest to get it all approved. For the knot tying, she also developed a great play list with our input, and accommodated our last minute changes. She was able to create the perfect mood for both aspects of our wedding day, and they were quite different, showing her flexibility and creativity. When I saw her in person for the first time on our wedding day, she looked stunning and had a different outfit to match the tone of our ceremony and reception. I literally did not have to do anything. Christie had it all together before we even had to think about it. Not only is she a talented musician, but also a very professional business woman who provided us with a comprehensive, but simple contract. All our payments were super easy and done on-line. She checked in with us every couple of months and sent little clips of songs she would be playing. This built the momentum and excitement. Finally, Christie is simply a delightful person to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a classy, beautiful ambiance at their special event. On a scale of 1-10, we give her a 25!! Thanks Christie.
I'm honored to have been part of this wonderful couple's love story, and I'm here to bring that same magic to your special event.
