“I think that music at a wedding should be your third most important decision after your officiate and a venue. The music can set the tone better than the flowers, the candles or the reception food. Don’t lessen the importance of your special day by depending on recorded music when you can hire a real musician, playing beautiful classical music for all your guests.”

Chris is simply the best! I contacted him on short notice to come play for my engagement proposal at The Olde Pink House in Savannah. He was extremely responsive, helped me plan out the details, and most importantly showed up right on time. Chris really impressed me with his violin skills and awesome attitude, and I thank him deeply for making my proposal a night that me and my fiancé will never forget.Sent on 09/21/2018

Beautiful, classic, elegant
Chris provided the pre-ceremony and ceremony music for our wedding at 10 Downing. His music definitely enhanced the beauty and elegance of the space. Chris was extremely easy to work with and was respectful of my wishes to include both traditional and contemporary selections for our ceremony. He offered suggestions for my entrance song, as well as our exit, after I was having difficulty deciding. Prior to my wedding, my mom and I were also able to meet with Chris via Skype to hear him play each of the selections we'd chosen. Even over the Internet, his music sounded beautiful and, at one point, brought my mom to tears. There's something very moving about a solo violin! I'd highly recommend including Chris in your wedding.Sent on 03/22/2020

Thank you for making our wedding so magical!!!
I can't say enough good things about Chris Dooley. I am a wedding planner in Savannah and have referred him to countless couples but I just had to leave a review after he performed at MY wedding on December 15th, 2018. He played at our ceremony with a few other musicians and it was truly the most magical experience of my life. He is very talented and very kind and very easy to work with. He replies quickly to e-mails and is just truly awesome. Also... the best part is he has birds AND he's funny. I would highly recommend Chris to any couple getting married in Savannah, he is awesome!!!Sent on 12/21/2018
