Ocdamia made my wedding BEAUTIFUL! I wanted my day to be filled with elegance and they were the icing on the cake. From the beginning they were very super quick when it came to the replies through text or email. Although, we had a little problem with the song my friend had choosen to sing along with the quartet. They automatically apologized and made sure I was happy. I believe many vendors could easily brush you off after the event was done, but not OCDAMIA. They were simply a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to hire them for another event!!!

Ocdamia Strings played during my ceremony and they were amazing! The music was so beautiful and I was skeptical about them not being at our rehearsal at first but Christopher assured me they would be able to play everything on queue and he was right. Not to mention the weather was very hot during our ceremony, which I felt bad about! But they were very nice and professional. I highly recommend them.

Ocdamia strings did a beautiful job playing for our Ceremony. We chose two of our favorite songs for them to arrange for strings and they did so timely and professionally. They even posted to youtube once their practice of our chosen songs was complete so we could preview their performance! It made me SO happy to hear our songs being played during the ceremony I am so glad we chose them to play for us!

Ocdamia Strings was the perfect addition to my wedding. We decided early on that we wanted strings at our wedding because we both enjoy live music and we felt strings added a beautiful touch to the event. We did lots of research and found Ocdamia, so we listened to them on YouTube. We were immediately drawn to how the group performed current pop music as well as the classics and traditional wedding music. Christopher was always quick to respond to my emails, and he is very kind and patient to work with. Their catalog of music to choose is extensive, and Christopher can even arrange string adaptations of any song they don't have; they did "Sweet Caroline" for us as our recessional. We had them play our wedding ceremony and the cocktail hour. When friends and family talk about our wedding, they always comment on how much they loved the strings. My husband and I are so happy we found Ocdamia Strings! They really helped make our day exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend them to anyone considering having strings play at their wedding.

Ocdamia Strings played at my daughter's wedding at Crescent Bay Point Park in a Laguna Beach. They were so accommodating especially given that this was outside in a public space that we really had no control over. Everything turned out perfect though and the music added such an important dimension to the small ceremony in this gorgeous setting. Christopher and two others were very professional and the music was beautiful --i 'd hire them again for sure.

Wow, I can't even begin to thank Chris and his team for everything he did during our wedding. First of all, the price was a steal for what he was offering. We had a strict budget to meet and Chris and his team delivered on the same high quality performance as seen in his videos for the amazing promotional rate he had at the time. Not only that, his team was more than willing to learn any song we wanted for a minimal fee and practice as needed with my wife's sister who wanted to sing during the ceremony. She ended up backing out at the end though, but a kind gesture none-the-less.

Chris was extremely flexible given our strange schedule and was able to break up the performance into 2 separate hours due to the venue location and timing. This was a great relief to us as many other groups were not willing to do this for us.

The performance itself was of extremely high quality and we received many compliments regarding our music. We went with classical music during the ceremony and more contemporary music during the reception and every performance was flawless. Not only that, but we were more than half an hour late during the ceremony and Chris and team continued to soldier through the timing issues and adjust as needed, and was perfectly on cue when we did arrive and start our walk down the isle.

I cannot thank Ocdamia Strings enough for everything they did and how well they conducted themselves throughout the wedding. Highly recommended for a memorable experience!

Ocdamia Strings is a fantastic group of musicians!

One of the first things I knew I wanted for our wedding was strings for our ceremony music. I particularly dug the Vitamin String Quartet feel – I wanted contemporary music done in a classic fashion. I found Ocdamia Strings through online research. They came highly recommended by other brides; their repertoire was perfectly in line with our tastes; and they play at a competitive cost. Plus, they would learn new songs for a small fee, which was very important for us as well. We arranged for them to learn a song to play for my march down the aisle, and it turned out beautifully! Also – it was more than worth the reasonable travel fee to have Ocdamia Strings travel down to the San Diego area from Anaheim.
I dealt primarily with Christopher Smith, usually over e-mail. Every interaction with the group was very professional, pleasant, and prompt. They played wonderfully at the wedding itself; we had them play about 15 minutes of prelude music, through the ceremony, and most of the cocktail hour. It was great!
Ocdamia Strings delivers a fantastic experience at a very reasonable cost. They helped us fulfill our vision of the perfect wedding, and I cannot recommend them highly enough to other brides, grooms and event planners!

Christopher, Nino and Art performed the ceremony and cocktail hour music at my wedding on 10/12/13. My interaction with Christopher leading up to the wedding was easygoing, friendly, and his responses were prompt and accommodating. Christopher was able to arrange some not-so-common songs that I wanted that weren't in their repertoire for a very reasonable additional fee. Most of their repertoire is available on YouTube so you can see/hear what you're getting. Similarly, if you request a new song, they will rehearse it in advance of the wedding and load onto YouTube. I would recommend Ocdamia Strings to anyone that wants a vendor that is easy to work with, accommodating, and who will put on a great performance.

Ocdamia Strings performed for my wedding ceremony and were wonderful! Their renditions of non-traditional music (my bridal party came out to the Game of Thrones theme) sounded as beautiful as their performance of Canon in D for my entrance! I would definitely recommend them!

Brides, I cannot MORE STRONGLY RECOMMEND Ocdamia Strings!!!! They provided the music for our intimate, 30-person Santa Barbara wedding on 10/5/13. My hubby and I are avid music lovers, with indie band song requests of Chris (lead violinist, who we wer in contact with), and this trio BRANG IT!!! And I don't just mean nailing the obscure songs we commissioned them to do for the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner. They were super easy to get ahold of, many many times all throughout the planning period. They easily glided through a literally 3-days-before-wedding additional song request. They are INCREDIBLY PROFESSIONAL, prompt (early!), flexible, ccommodating, utterly pleasant to deal with, not to mention talented and they sound fantastic!!! They played for FOUR straight hours without a break. They then played overtime, upon our request. When there wasn't quite enough room for the Trio on the patio where we were having our reception dinner, Chris positioned the Trio just inside some french doors to the patio (acoustically sounded perfect), and put himself so he could see me/my reaction to the music thru the open door. Talk about flexible. And this I discovered after the fact--they just trouble-shooted the situation themselves. Brilliant!! We werent even charged extra for commuting from their location in Anaheim to Santa Barbara. Countless guests at our wedding raved about the Trio!!! The value is just out of this world... Ocdamia Strings could charge triple what they do. I loved their unique contribution to our wedding as much (or maybe more than!) my gorgeous, custom-made wedding dress!! Ladies, DO NOT HESITATE!!! These guys are The Best!!!
