What Our Past Clients Have to Say
Christie was amazing!! Loved working with her and she was able to accommodate our needs leading up to the big day. Would highly recommend booking her.
My husband and I are both musicians who met playing in a band so it was important to us that we found a musician we enjoyed and respected. And oh my goodness did Christie Becker deliver! If you want a beautifully talented musician and an absolutely lovely human to work with for your special day, Christie Becker is IT! She was so incredibly easy to work with, helpful, and, given that we had a sunrise wedding which likely required her to wake up around 2 or 3am I think it's wildly important to share that she's also incredibly reliable. Seriously... stop searching. Do yourself a favor and elevate your special day by hiring Christie Becker Violin!
Christie was an absolute gem! During the planning process, she was immensely helpful in guiding us on what each section of the ceremony meant, provided example song lists for each, and was flexible when I changed my mind a few times! Plus at the 6 month mark, she would send monthly updates with clips of the music we chose and it would be a great way to get even more excited about our wedding. We got married in a cute chapel - after the ceremony we went upstairs to ring the bell and we got to hang out next to her for a bit while we took some pictures. From what I saw, Christie looked like she was having a lot of fun playing music and we couldn't have asked for a more genuine, caring, and dedicated woman to be a part of our special day :)
Christie was absolutely wonderful to work with for our Indian wedding reception. She was timely in her responses, respectful, professional, flexible, and kind, and she worked well with our other vendors (sound/light, planners) to ensure that things would go smoothly day of. She worked with us in advance to plan the songs she would play and allowed us to choose multiple Bollywood songs, some of which were from a list she provided of songs she had played before and others which were not. On the day of, she gave a stunning performance that left our guests in awe. She played a beautiful medley of the songs we had discussed, and it was definitely one of the best highlights of the evening. I would definitely recommend Christie - she is incredibly talented and so great to work with!

Christie was so flexible and wonderful about communicating with us! We loved working with her for our wedding. She helped us create a custom song list and made the wedding that much more beautiful and memorable.
- Kara P
Christie was truly the star of our wedding! We got Christie on board just 3 months before our wedding and we are so glad she was available. Christie worked with us carefully to curate a song list that included both hindi and english songs! She played the cocktail hour and our guests loved her so much that we actually had her play for an additional half hour! Thank you for everything Christie :)
- Shivani S
Christie Becker was truly a class act. Not only is she beautiful and extremely talented, but she's also very flexible and creative! She really added a special flare to my wedding and it sincerely would NOT have been the same without her there! Fun fact: I wanted her to play Baby Shark on the violin when our flower girl walked down the aisle, and she started it out with the JAWS theme song. EVERYONE loved it! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
- Sarah Z
Christie is a magical goddess that turned my wedding fantasy into a reality. I had instant tears of complete happiness when she played our song as I walked down the aisle. Highly recommend this insanely talented soul!
- Ashley Jane M
Christie played violin for our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception. She is BEYOND talented and such a sweet person. She would send us cute little snippets of her work every so often and made us feel like she was genuinely excited to be a part of our day. Her ability to play both western AND Indian music is so amazing and she was able to learn new songs just for our wedding. Totally worth every penny and would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you Christie for making our wedding SO special! xoxo
Christie was absolutely incredible! She handled many logistical challenges to play violin at our wedding ceremony, including dealing with ferries and a rescheduling of the entire event due to COVID... Her performance had all of our guests buzzing throughout the rest of the wedding events- to top it all off, she created a custom piece of music for us and gave us updates and song samples as the event approached. She was an absolute dream to have play at our event and I would book her again for our next special event without hesitation
Christie played beautifully during our wedding. She does such an amazing job with coordinating before the ceremony and exceeded our expectations. I truly appreciated the updates via email that were sent leading up to the wedding that shared personalized sound clips of our songs meant to be played. I felt so special and thought of; it was such a nice touch. She is very professional and timely. I would for sure recommend her to anyone looking for a magical music performance.
Christie Becker is phenomenal! She played for two hours at our wedding (ceremony and cocktail hour), and I can honestly say that booking her was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. She's organized, communicative, so kind and friendly, and best of all, is an incredible violinist. We had some random song requests that we were hoping she could play, and she was a resounding yes for every single one - even if she had never heard them before! Christie is amazing!!
Christie Becker was the best decision we made for our wedding! My husband was on the fence...since we already contracted a DJ, however adding live music as well definitely made our wedding experience a dream! Christie was quick to respond to our inquiry and even sent us an audio sample - which won my husband over. Christie is a classy act and we got so many compliments from our guests about her amazing performance! Book Christie, you won't regret it! Thank you Christie for being a part of our wedding and making it so memorable for many.
Christie Becker played for our ceremony and cocktail hour and she was absolutely amazing! I cannot recommend her highly enough. She was an absolute pleasure to work with - very responsive, flexible, and an extremely talented musician! I would 110% book her for another event.
Much to my surprise, Christie played at my son’s wedding on October 23 in Leavenworth Washington. I happened to be honored with performing the ceremony for my son and our new daughter. The violin music that Christie played was fantabulous, a star of the event. I could have sat and listened to her for hours. Her music was so beautiful and oh boy, did it add to the ceremony. Very special. It was literally the most beautiful music I have ever heard and I’ve traveled the world and at one time spoke 5 languages. I have not lived with my head in the sand. If you want beautiful music at your event, you must pick Christie. You’d be making a huge mistake if you don’t.

Christie's violin performance was superb in all respects. People in attendance felt likewise and thanked her many times for her splendid playing. Thanks again Christie.
- Richard A.
Christie was so professional and flexible on our wedding day! When rain put a damper on our outdoor ceremony, she was able to play cocktail hour indoors instead. We got SO many compliments on her playing and our guests were impressed by her performance. She was super easy to work with in selecting songs too. Highly recommend!
Excellent performance Christie's talented performance made our wedding into a dream come true thank you so much.
- Steven S.
Christie performed at our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, throughout our dinner and our reception at Tsillan Cellars in Chelan, Washington. It’s an understatement to say that she is amazing! ...I contacted Christie and we had a video chat within a day. We customized my entire list from ceremony to reception. She sent us sample clips each month up until the week before our wedding! This was a destination wedding for us, so we never met Christie or saw her play in person but trust me, you don’t need to because what you see and hear online from her is fantastic and what you see and hear in person is phenomenal! She is so talented, sweet, and easy to work with; she made last minute adjustments when the venue changed a few things from us and even took requests from our guests... It was the best choice I could have made! My guests are STILL talking about what a beautiful job she did! Book her! You won’t regret it! Christie, thank you for making our day even more beautiful than it already was!
What a dream birthday! [My granddaughter] loved your music! She said she cried when you began with the Chili Peppers. Aw.. [My granddaughter] said she also loved the Japanese medley. "It was so beautiful, Grandma." Her mother said, "The wonderful talent of the violinist and her choice of songs created a Birthday Gift that we will always remember. It was perfect!" Christie, your personal performance was everything I had hoped for and more. "A Gift of Music!" My heartfelt thanks to you, Christie! Even though we are only a few people, our hearts have expanded greatly with love today. Your music will stay with us for a long time. Thank you, again, for the happiness you generously gave to us all.

Working with Christie was amazing! She took the time to communicate with us to arrange perfect ceremony and cocktail hour song lists from her large list of options. She even learned a special song for us and provided a "sneak peak" via email! She's incredibly talented and we loved having her as a part of our intimate wedding. Thanks Christie!
- Samantha K
Christie is amazing! She was so responsive and extremely helpful throughout the planning process. We had Christie play at our wedding and I was blown away by her talent! She made our wedding ceremony so special. I would highly recommend booking Christie for any event!
I have had the honor of hearing this outstanding performer this past Friday January 24, 2020. I am so happy that we booked Mrs. Christie Becker for the Annual Military Ball for the unit. On behalf of the 5th BN 20th IN Regiment I thank you and so much and we absolutely loved your performance.
- Jaime B.
Christie was absolutely wonderful. We had our elopement outdoors on a rugged beach and she came prepared with a rain cover and was early and played beautifully. I cannot recommend her enough. She made our day that much more special. I am forever thankful!
- Rachel H.
Christie was amazing from DAY 1! She responded quickly to my emails. She reached out to the lead musician at our church and got to work on the music right away. I never had to stress about Christie. She took time to make sure my vision came true. I wanted to make everyone cry with a romantic ceremony. She definitely made it happen! The week of the wedding I asked her to come early and play for our in church first look. Not only did she agree to arrive early, she made it a memorable private moment for myself and my husband. I HIGHLY recommend Christie! For the shy/phone anxiety planners...Christie communicated with me solely by email which took a lot of anxiety out of trying to get the energy to make yet another vendor call. A small thing but it meant a whole lot to me!
- Denise V.
Thank you for helping make Mary & I day so special...we truly appreciated everything YOU brought; with the wonderful melodic mood you set, it elevated the moment when I set my eyes on the breathtaking sight of seeing my wife to be!
- Allan H.
I've coordinated a lot of events and things to surprise my wife in the past, nothing has ever been so flawless and beautiful. Christie communicated very well prior and her timing and performance were beyond amazing. I cannot thank her enough for such a memorable night. Thanks again Christie.
Christie did a wonderful job for my surprise proposal. The music was amazing.
- Neil P.
We loved the beauty and elegance your music and your presence added to our daughters wedding. Many people commented on the pleasure your music gave them. We are so grateful to you.
- Patricia K.
I had Christie for my wedding and she were amazing, so patience waiting us to sign the contract and also flexible with our dates. Out wedding suppose to happen in september 12 and we had to change it after new corona virus rules in our state. We still were able to have her and she were amazing.
- Maria A.
Honestly, Christie is the best ever! She was excited to work with our unique music selections and create a play list that flowed really well. All our wedding guests were floored by her skills (us too!) and were all impressed by her. She made our wedding ceremony extremely memorable and we could not have imagined a better outcome. Christie - thank you so much for joining us!
- Carli M.
Christie was great to work with! She reached out every month with a wedding day countdown and a preview of song from our wedding playlist which we loved! She made the ceremony even more special. I would highly recommend her for your special day.
- Kendra P.
I had the honor of having Christie play at my intimate wedding this past weekend! It was absolutely beautiful and just how I imagined. I was going for a romantic garden theme and having the live violinist really added the perfect touch. Working with Christie was one of the most low maintenance parts of wedding planning and I was incredibly grateful for that! After our initial call, she sent me her song lists and some suggestions, and I sent her back the songs I wanted - so simple. She also arranged a song for us not on her song list that I requested! On the day of the wedding Christie arrived on time and set up her equipment all by herself and didn’t need any more directions - a true professional! She has lovely back tracks that enhance the sound of the violin, without taking away the live music feel. I thought having a solo violinist was perfect and would absolutely recommend Christie Becker to anyone for live music (for any event!) Having someone to gauge pace and fade out the music easily was such a smart decision that I would suggest! Christie herself is also very friendly and I saw her talking to many guests after the ceremony who were complimenting her music.
- Erin H.
Christie Becker and her crew were absolutely marvelous. They arrived early, set up, and played beautifully for 6 hours during our wedding reception. I told Christie that I envisioned my wedding being lively, jubilant and picturesque and she outperformed my wildest expectations. My family and friends were dancing and singing along the whole night. Christie assembled all of my requested songs in a beautiful playlist ranging from classical songs, oldies, country, alternative music, pop, and even one Disney song. I would definitely recommend her for any event; I got so many compliments from my guests. Even my father, a piano player and music critic, loved my music choice. Thank you for helping make our day EXTRA magical.
