People often say the DJ will make or break the reception. This is so true.
We initially had another DJ, but five weeks out from our wedding, my fiance went to a wedding he did and said it was awful. I panicked, but that was when we found Chris. After talking with him, we knew immediately we wanted him to be our DJ.
After our first face-to-face meeting only a week before the wedding, we felt very confident in Chris and were very excited. We told him exactly what we want. We're both young and wanted our reception to really have a party atmosphere where everyone danced. We had people of all ages present.
Leading up to the wedding, Chris was very open to last minute changes and responded to emails quickly. He was very helpful in figuring out little details concerning the reception. He made it very clear that he would listen to anything we needed.
The day of he was AWESOME. He was there and set up on time. The music he played during desert set the mood nicely. While we were going around talking to people, he came up and let us know it was getting late, and that we should probably cut the cake soon. It was nice to have Chris keep things on track. For the toasts, he handed a mic to the best man and maid of honor unnoticed.
The music was great. He listened to all our requests, and blended songs seamlessly together. People of all ages danced all night. My dad danced quite a bit, which is very impressive for a man who never dances. There were a couple times when my husband and I stopped dancing and Chris would come and check on us and make sure we were still doing well. We both had such a great time.
After the wedding, we got so many comments. Everyone loved Chris and many said it was the most fun wedding they had ever been too. His accent is great and everyone thought he talked just the right amount of time.
A DJ makes or breaks the reception. If you want a fun reception, I cannot recommend Chris highly enough. You will be so glad you went with him!
