Vibrant, unforgettable music for your special day! Nothing speaks to us like music does. Live music has the power to draw guests in, create intimacy, heighten emotion, and ensure beautiful memories. Elegant Violin by Lindsay Skipper is a trustworthy, cost-effective wedding music option to add beauty, class, and color to your wedding or special event. I'm a classically trained violinist and have specialized as a soloist in wedding and special event music since founding Elegant Violin in 2010. Over a two decade trajectory, I've performed in quartets and orchestras in the U.S. and internationally, including the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra and Seven Hills Sinfonietta of Cincinnati.
Lindsay Skipper is a professional in every sense of the word. We received so many compliments on the wedding music. She made it so easy for my daughter to choose her wedding ceremony songs and even created three beautiful new arrangements that were not on her play list, making my daughter's wedding exactly how she envisioned it. We were so blessed to have Lindsay be a part of our daughter's special day!
Lindsay was great! A true professional and a pleasure to work with.
Response from Elegant Violin:
Thanks, John! Congratulations to your daughter and son-in-law. Hope the rest of the day was as splendid as the ceremony!
Lindsay did amazing at our wedding. Would highly recommend her for anyone wanting to add a little elegance to their special day.
😘 thank you
Response from Elegant Violin:
Thank you, Tanya! Your daughter's wedding at Mt. Storm was beautiful and we were so blessed with great weather. Congratulations to Courtney and Brandon!
As soon as I heard her music playing on her website, I knew I found my musician. Lindsay was very prompt and professional during our online communications, and even though I didn't actually meet her until the day of the ceremony, the music was perfect and the wedding went off without a hitch.
And, an unintended help- her music helped keep me calm during the prelude so I wasn't freaking out. I really appreciated that.
Lindsay's playing was beautiful! We had several comments on how beautiful and elegant it was. Her performance of "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You" was one of my personal favorites. I would Definitely book Lindsay again. She was very pleasant and easy to work with. I feel very fortunate to have met her and had her entertain at my daughter's wedding.
Response from Elegant Violin:
Thanks, Terri! It was great to be a part of your daughter's big day.
Besides being extremely talented, Lindsay is incredibly professional and personable! The residents at the senior living facility in which I work absolutely love her. I will be asking her back to perform time and time again.
We really wanted an intimate yet relaxed environment. Having Lindsay play for our wedding brought a level of class and comfort to our special day, that we truly felt like we were able to create a unique setting that completely expressed the way we feel about one another. She was able to use a piece from our favorite local band to play along with that is very dear to us. Her execution and timing was seamless, fluid and impactful. All of our guests expressed how beautiful and sweet our ceremony turned out, and we know Lindsay’s touch helped make that possible.

Response from Elegant Violin:
Brooke, thanks so much for your kind words! I will always remember what a beautiful day you had to celebrate your wedding. Loved everything about it!
Elegant Violin was hired to entertain our guests at our official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and did an outstanding job! Our residents and guests here at Brookdale Kenwood was very impressed with the professionalism and wonderful music. Lindsay adapted well with the memory care unit and did some traveling music to entertain all our guests.
Lindsay added a special and unique touch to our outdoor wedding ceremony. We are completely happy with what she brought to our special day.
Very easy to select songs for every aspect of the ceremony, her website lets you preview each one. She was even able to play a contemporary song not on her site and played it perfectly.
We would recommend her without thinking twice. She truly added an element of class and set a beautiful tone to our ceremony.
Thank you so much Lindsay!!
Provided tasteful background music for our rehearsal dinner
With so many preparations to make for the Big Day, working with Lindsay made planning our music very easy. She made suggestions, offered help, and even learned a new song to make our day extra special. We would recommend her for any event!
A must book for your event!!! She made the event wonderful, made it personal and offered to learn a new song!!!!!
I would highy recommend Lindsay for any venue you need! Very professional and such a sweet person. Her talent is simply breathtaking.
Lindsay (Elegant Violin) is a remarkable violinist. I had an outdoor wedding so obviously an organ or a piano was out of the question but we weren't looking for recorded music either. Lindsay was the perfect solution. She has a great list of music to choose from and will even learn new music if you request something she doesn't already offer. Having her play the violin at our wedding was the perfect romantic touch to our wedding. She is very professional, arrived ahead of time to make sure she knew her cues and didn't need a lot of direction. Lindsay was our dream musician and will certainly bring an extra touch of class to your event. 5 stars isn't enough!
Lindsay did a great job playing for my wedding ceremony & cocktail hour. She was very good communicating music selections and responding to my many questions. The music was a nice addition to our ceremony & cocktail hour at the Inn at Virginia Tech.
Lindsay played our October 6th wedding and did a wonderful job. She sat everything up and had played beautifully. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding violinist.
The violist, Lindsay, was wonderful at my wedding in July 2012! She outlined all the information I needed to give her so picking the music was thorough, fun, and simple. She had planned to play outside but adjusted easily to our day-of rain crisis and played beautifully.
Working with Elegant Violin gave me peace-of-mind during the planning and as I walked down the aisle- just what every bride needs!
Lindsay played for us at our September 24, 2011 wedding at Chateau Morrisette, Floyd, Va. She was absolutely amazing. Incredibly easy to work with. The music was gorgeous and made our day even more perfect!
What to Expect
Wedding party and guests alike enjoy classical favorites and arrangements of today's best love songs - all performed live on a 120-year-old violin with recorded accompaniment.

Additional Booking Notes
Due to the delicate nature of string instruments, I require shelter from any precipitation (including light/spotty rain), direct sunlight, and temperatures below 60F. The amp I use can be battery-powered so I do not need access to an outlet. I also bring my own stool.

Lindsay did an amazing job! She played so perfectly and beautifully! It was seriously flawless! She is a great person as well and was very helpful as I decided what songs to use. A year later I am still receiving so many compliments on how great the music was.
