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.
Book her!!!! When we first contemplated on hiring a violinist, I did not expect Christie to answer my call on the very first try. From the very beginning of simply inquiring and playing with the idea, I felt understood. She grasped our personalities and also the vibe we were going for. Her proposal was so articulate and beautiful, we needed to make it official asap! It brought all the feels for us both. We had a lot of people in our procession and that included a variety of songs. She did a wonderful job transitioning between them all and did so with so much grace. Our wedding was pretty big so her playing songs that we picked out specifically together created an intimate moment between my husband and I. Christie was very patient, she communicated through email and by phone, when requested. She is very detailed, down to her own attire. I must admit that even with a day of coordinator there were things not communicated and I appreciated her diligence through it all. She is a very organized and punctual individual who takes pride in what she does. She is simply amazing!!!! We wanted people to feel LOVE, hear LOVE and witness LOVE and she definitely helped make that happen. Christie, thank you so much for being apart of such an incremental moment in our lives! To the readers, just book her! You won’t regret it!!!

Christie is a phenomenally talented violinist!

Best decision we made , she was so great in communication during the planning process and I highly recommend !!

If you are looking for a violinist for your wedding or any event really you need not look any further! Christie was everything we were looking for and more. She was lovely to work with and was very professional and organized. We hired her to play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. From the start she was so easy to work with and was super responsive. Once we hired her, she created a planning page for us and helped us develop the playlist she would play for each. The thing I loved the most about working with her is each month, on the 7th of the month (we got married 10/7/23), she would send me a countdown email with a clip of something she would be playing at our wedding. I looked forward to her emails and loved this special touch that she didn't have to do! Once the wedding was getting close she started to work with our coordinator and I didn't have to worry about anything. She really elevated our wedding and it was perfection. Our guest kept raving about her too. I would definitely hire Christie again, she is a gem and so very talented!

Working with Christie was a 10/10 experience all around. I found her when I was at a point of wedding planning that had become stressful and it was so wonderful to find someone who made the process of having live music at your event SO easy. She knew immediately the vibe that I wanted for my ceremony and cocktail hour and executed it perfectly. She also took the initiative of working directly with my planner to ensure everything went smoothly. Christie truly cares about making events so special accompanied by her incredible talent as a musician! I could say 100 more great things about her but if you take anything away from this it would be to hire her for your next event! Thank you Christie!
I could not have loved working with Christie more. Not only was she super responsive and professional, but she learned the specific songs we wanted for our wedding. She would send us clips so we knew how certain songs would sound and her playing made me cry every time. She was such a wonderful addition to our day.
Having Christie at our wedding is the best decision we’ve made! She is very easy to talk to and very responsive, which makes wedding planning a little less stressful. She has an extensive list of songs that she can play, even includes those musical songs that we love! Her music set the tone of our wedding and definitely made me cry walking down the aisle. Every guests enjoyed it!
- Sharon C.
Christie was so helpful and incredibly professional. Her website and experience was something that other musicians we spoke to did not have and really set her apart. We had a lot of custom requests for music that was not in her repertoire, and she was able to do all of them! Several of our guests approached us and asked where we found her, because they loved her playing os much. I would highly recommend Christie for your wedding or other event.
- Vamsi S,
Christie was amazing to work with for my husband's 32-years-young surprise birthday present: A private concert,consisting of his favorite movie and video game soundtracks. Christie masterfully intertwined classical movements with modern cinematic melodies more than I could have ever imagined. Her performance was simultaneously elegant, fun, endearing and beautiful - everything my husband means to me. I was so in awe of how Christie captured this essence that I cried three times during her performance. Christie set the mark high for my husband's birthday present next year, but I wouldn't have it any other way for how special she made us feel. Thank you!
- Danielle C.
Christie is a fantastic musician, performer, and collaborator for our small wedding. She went above and beyond, working with us to make the musical accompaniment everything we could have wanted. From a grand entrance rendition of "Helena" by My Chemical Romance to a recession featuring "All the Small Things" by Blink 182, she truly made it a special ceremony befitting our unique tastes. I 100% recommend considering her for your next event!
- David H.
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 the highlight of our Indian-Filipino wedding reception! Everyone kept complimenting us with how beautifully she played. We requested a mix of Filipino, Punjabi, and other songs and she would send us samples of our requested songs before the big day. She is extremely talented and definitely one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process!
- Zelynda H.
We had our wedding 3 days ago, and our guests are STILL messaging us about how much they loved Christie during our cocktail hour. She helped us create the most perfect playlist for our cocktail hour and our guests were singing and vibing with her the WHOLE time. Not only was she great at playing, but she was so organized the whole time planning. If you are thinking about booking live music, look no further and book Christie TODAY! One of the best decisions I made for our wedding.
- Luu V.
My husband and I loved working with Christie! She played the ceremony music at our wedding recently, and she did an amazing job. She was even able to learn "Saturday Sun" for us as our recessional music. I got so many compliments about her during the reception and after the wedding! Highly recommend.
- Kayla V.
Christie is absolutely incredible. She has a diverse portfolio of music that she can play and is so easy to work with. Christie was communicative, fast at replying and exceeded all of our wedding day music expectations. Our ceremony and dinner would not have been as beautiful had it not been for Christie playing in the background. Hands down our best decision for our wedding day. Hire Christie and you will be so happy you did.
- Katie J.
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.
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.
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.
I am SO glad that I book Christie! She was an absolute delight to work with from the booking process to the day of the event. She was the epitome of professionalism and her talent exceeded my expectations! We hired her for a pre screening of the film, Dungeons and Dragons and her fiddling completely set the tone for the event. I have never had so many attendees come up to me and compliment a vendor before. I highly recommend Christie for your next event!

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!
- Karishma P
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
From our late first contact with Christie, several months before the wedding, she was able to coordinate with the wedding couple the precise song selection and timing they sought.
It was through her gentle guidance that Stepanie and Alex were able to have their visions for a perfect wedding come true musically.
She presented a flawless performance on the wedding day that started with all the guests singing along with her wedding piece. This was followed by providing a delightful, heavenly ambience during the cocktails from the edge of the forest.
Christie is a gifted, impassioned and well organized performer who was able to direct and focus what she needed to deliver an excellent musical experience.
Father of the Bride
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 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 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 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!
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!
Christie was great! She exceeded our expectations and really set the scene. We appreciated her wide variety of music since our event was on NYE, she really had some great choices. Thank you! We will definitely keep you in mind for future events!
- Jazmine R.
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.
- Al. F.
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.
Excellent performance Christie's talented performance made our wedding into a dream come true thank you so much.
- Steven S.
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.
Christie was nothing short of amazing! She was professional, she was kind, she allowed me to do a payment plan, design a playlist of my choosing, hear samples of her work AND (while not requested) she wore the same colors as me and my now fiancé did. Her work is second to none. Thank you Christie for making my moment 100 times more special. I appreciate you! I highly recommend Christie Becker.
- Taylor W.
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.
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.
- Nancy H.
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 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.
- Linda R.
"Christie is amazing to work with! She responds in a timely manner and has very clear communication. She cares about each event and exceeds expectations for when she performs! We would recommend Christie to anyone looking to bring elegance into their event."

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.
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.
