Lovely music and couple!

Chrissie and Jimmy played music during our ceremony and cocktail hour for our wedding on February 16, 2019 and they did a wonderful job. They were easy to work with and helped make our day special. They learned two songs for us and from what I could hear it was beautiful. Thank you for helping us bring joy to our guests with beautiful music!

Whenever I show up to perform a wedding and see Better Halves are playing I get SO excited. I love them so much. I remember our first wedding together at the French Legation-- I had to know who they were. Such a sweet duo. I highly recommend them.
