There are no words to describe how awesome Chris was! He traveled all the way from Lake Tahoe to Indianapolis to play for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and did a fabulous job! He was very professional and quick to respond to emails and phone calls. He knows almost every song and is willing to learn the ones he doesn't. He went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly and the music was flawless. Chris was the highlight of our wedding and I can't say enough about him!! We are still getting compliments and guests loved him. Book him now before he fills up... you won't regret it :)

I would give Lake Tahoe Violin Weddings 20+ stars if it was an option!...
Chris played for our destination outdoor mountain wedding and cocktail hour on 8-10-18. The day was perfect, and his violin skills were AMAZING!! As a bride you usually have a million things going on, and he was so good, even I stopped to just listen and take it in for a minute! Our guests could not get over how talented he is, and his ability to not just play classical music but also more current favorites too, and he even played guests requests!. He truly helped create the perfect ambiance for our BIG day and we cannot thank him enough!

Chris was amazing at our outdoor wedding. He played all of our ceremony and reception music and was a big hit with all our guests who loved his great variety of everything from classical to pop covers. He also stayed overtime to play his unique cover of our first dance song . We were very happy to have him as a part of our wedding!
