We researched many DJs, but none of them really stood out to us. We saw Nard's at a booth during the wedding expo. After meeting with them, we knew instantly that we were going with them as our DJ. Patrick has a great sense of humor, great equipment and both Patrick and James were very professional. James was actually the one at our wedding, and he did an AWESOME JOB! He did all of the announcements and introductions, as well as keeping the dance floor packed all night. We gave him a small list of requested songs, but everything else he chose was great! He kept the party going. Even our older guests were out there having a blast. It has been almost a month, and our friends & family are still talking about our wedding! They have all said they had so much fun and it was one of the best they have ever attended. Very memorable. You will not regret choosing Nard's. We couldn't have asked for better entertainment for our big day. :) Thanks guys!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Patrick and his team. They checked in with us multiple times before the wedding to make sure everything was going well and to see if we needed any help. Patrick kept everything running smoothly at the wedding. He was very professional and kept the dance floor full. Many of my guests commented it was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding. I even had family members who never dance get out on the dance floor.
I would highly recommend Nard's for any event, especially a wedding.
Music was such an important part of our wedding and they got everything just right! Patrick was much more than the DJ. He kept everything going and was watchful of each and every stage of the wedding and reception. I was so impressed that he listened to what we wanted and made it the most faboulous day I could have imagined!!!
Marlyn and Steve Snow
Loved working with Steve. He was very comfortbale and laid back to work with, which is the type of people we are.
A little bit pricey than some other places we looked into, but for both the ceremony site and the reception things turned out awesome!
Steve did an excellent job DJ'ing our wedding reception. He kept people on the dance floor all night!
Patrick from Nard's was the DJ at our wedding in September and we couldn't have asked for anyone better! Although our wedding was in Richmond, we do not live there. As a result, we were worried about how difficult it would be to work with our DJ over the phone and through email. However, with Patrick it was no problem at all. He was very easy to work with and he was very flexible in order to meet with us when we were in town on the weekends. Patrick was very familiar with our reception location so he was able to help us along the way even with wedding items unrelated to the music. Additionally, we had a challenging and wordy set of introductions for our rather large wedding party along with a special wedding song that we cut ourselves. We gave all that info to Patrick and he was completely accommodating. Once the party got started at the reception, Patrick played the perfect mix based on the songs we told him we liked. The dance floor was packed the entire night. If you're looking for a DJ that will be extremely accommodating, will keep the dance floor packed, and has no problem meeting special requests, Patrick is your man. Thank you Patrick!
She was great. Played everything we asked for. And more important, she did not play the things we did not want (chicken dance...etc)
My husband has a very interesting taste in music. He is very much a rock / metal guy (yes, I still love him very much!). I had met Steve at one of the Richmond Bridal Shows and hit it off instantly! He was perfect, he knew exactly what my husband was into but was making it sound good even to me! When they actually met for the first time to go over the song list it was reconfirmed. No one else would have done. Steve did amazing the night of, there were so many 16-20ish year old guest wanting more pop and rap, he mixed a bit in here and there to keep them happy but really hit what we wanted and made it fun for everyone.
This DJ was very knowledgeable of the business. He not only DJ'd the wedding and reception but he was also the MC. He did all the annoucing and he even ordered the timeline of events. He did a pretty good job but there were a few mishaps. He started to announce the wedding party before I (the bride) had my dress bussled. So half of our wedding party was introduced and then there was a 5-7 minute pause while my mom tried to find all the buttons to bussle my dress for the bride and groom first dance. When I was finally ready to enter the reception the remaining part of the wedding party was introduced. It was awkward. The DJ called all the questionable shots during the reception instead of the on site event coordinator. He also persuaded me to not have a champagne toast because he said all the guests were too intoxicated yet the event bar continued to serve them so it would have been better just to have the champagne for the other guests. Also the groom was in the bathroom when the DJ played the last song so he missed most of our last dance. The DJ was priced within his competition plus he added additional equipment to cover our ceremony at no additional cost. He also made us a CD of all the songs he played during the reception which has been one of the most valuable things to have that I didn't expect to receive. Overall I would recommend Nards but be careful to not let them take over the entire event.
