DJ Dan was amazing! He was super friendly and laid back, which was perfect for our style and our venue. He played the main event songs as requested (first dance, father-daughter dance, etc.) and then played what kept our guests on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG. It was a blast!...

DJ Mary was outstanding!!! She was wonderful to work with in the week leading up to our ceremony, and she had great ideas for how to transition music during the ceremony, during dinner, and even during our first dances to keep the length reasonable. She was a total rockstar at... Read More our wedding! Her choice of how to order the playlist during the dance portion of the reception and when to switch from oldies to pop was exceptional. We got so many compliments on how great the music was and what an amazing job our DJ did. I literally remember thinking - she just played four awesome songs in a row...it's going to be hard to come up with another one to follow- and she did for like the next 15+ songs!! There was not a single song that cleared the dance floor all night! She was also super flexible when accommodating our requests in the moment. At one point I told her not to do the dollar dance, but then we changed our mind 20 min later and she cut right to it after the next song was played. She had great energy and the perfect amount of interaction with the crowd. She also did a wonderful job of keeping us on schedule and making the people who had to give speeches feel comfortable taking the mic. She was truly an artist and a professional, and we could not be more thrilled with having had her as our DJ.

Faith was AMAZING and we could not speak more highly of her. My (now) husband is very particular with his music and having the right DJ was his main concern. We didn't get to choose Faith, but we are so glad she ended up with us. Our conversation with her before the wedding was... Read More very helpful and she understood everything that we were getting at and could envision what we were. Once at the wedding, Faith was early and introduced herself right away. She worked well with our Officiant and wedding guests and we were delighted with her music choices. She kept the party going all night long -- honestly, I've been to MANY weddings and I've never seen the dance floor filled like that for so much of the night. She kept the interactions to a minimum, but was friendly when guests had a request or just simply wanted to talk music. She nailed the ceremony song timing and our grand march. We 100% recommend Faith and could not be more happy with the way everything went for our night.

Adagio was amazing. My husband and I really liked the online planner and how easy it was to plan our wedding music.

We had a pretty good experience using Adagio for the DJ service at our wedding. The planning process was clear and concise and I really enjoyed the ease of their online planner for putting together most of the details for our day. We only used them for our reception music, so I... Read More can't comment on the variety of their ceremony selections, but I thought their library offered a pretty good selection of music that we wanted. We did have a few songs (including our first dance song) that we wanted that weren't in the planner, but our DJ did a great job of getting those beforehand for us. We got a great discount through our wedding planner for their affiliation with Adagio, but they still seemed to be relatively affordable compared to other DJ services we looked at. As some other reviewers had mentioned, we did not get assigned a DJ until the week before our wedding and we were contacted to set up a meeting with him the week of our wedding, so that could be a source of anxiety for a bride who really needs/wants to know that info ahead of time. On the day of our wedding, DJ Sean was super polite and did a good job facilitating our timeline and making sure we fit in everything we requested. He also was sure to ask us throughout the night how we felt it was going and whether we wanted any changes. We thought he did an awesome job of giving us a variety of music so that people were on the dance floor all night, some of our guests commented it was the best wedding music they had heard! Overall, I was happy with the service we got from Adagio, however I am pretty laid back and that could be an issue for someone who is not.

We were matched with Nolan Evans, who was awesome. He called us the week before the wedding and double-checked that everything he had was correct. He arrived early, knew where everything was to set up, moved to the winery quickly and on time, and kept us on schedule. We did the...

We also played Thunderstruck, the drinking game and although he had never played before, he explained perfectly. He played good music and our dance floor was full all night!
