Chicago Wedding & Commitment Ceremony Music

Add an Extra Touch of Magic to Your Special Day

At 1-800-Violins, we know how many important details go into planning your special day. Owner and professional violinist Rami Hagari works personally with you and your wedding planners to develop a ceremony and/or reception songlist that is tailored to your preferences and taste.

When you walk down the aisle, your wedding music emphasizes the majesty of the moment. We make programming your ceremony easier with personalized music planning. In as little as one meeting, we can help you select the perfect soloist and ensemble combination for your ceremony and the music that best reflects your feelings and is appropriate to the setting. On your wedding day, we coordinate visual cues with your wedding director and adjust the tempo/length of music according to the pace of the processions. 

Music for a Reception to Remember

Our talented, personable and professional musicians offer classical chamber music, show tunes, jazz, rock or pop that will keep your guests on their feet and dancing the night away.

We also offer string ensembles, harpists, pianists, and strolling violins —all of which are the perfect touch to appetizers, a cocktail reception or a sit-down meal.

1-800-Violins is also happy to work with your DJ, or recommend one to you, to create the perfect balance of elegant pre-reception, dinner, and first dance music countered with DJ'd dance music that keeps your guests rockin' all night long.
