I can't say enough good things about DJ Sal and the Bliss Events Group team. From the beginning of our wedding planning process, right to the very end, they were absolutely amazing and truly went above and beyond to make our wedding dreams a re...
When we first hired Sal, we let him know that we were planning on having a quartet for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner part of our wedding, so we really only needed him to be there for the evening reception/dancing. To our surprise, Sal wanted to join us for the entire day, and said he was more than happy to help with the general pacing of the day, working with our wedding coordinator to help everything flow nicely until it was his time to DJ. Maybe that's typical for wedding DJs, but we certainly never expected all of that from him, and it ended up being one of the biggest helps on our wedding day and truly one of the best things about Sal.
What I quickly learned is that Sal not only wanted to make sure our wedding guests had a great time dancing, he wanted to make sure that our entire day went off without a hitch. And that was exactly what he did. He worked with our coordinator to help our guests move from one event to the next, he helped during our ceremony with microphones and sound, he announced our arrival into our dinner space, he lead our wedding speeches with confidence and charisma, and he guided our guests through a sparkler exit as we transitioned into dancing. He truly helped the entire day run smoothly and beautifully, and we were so surprised and so grateful.
As far as the actual DJ-ing goes, Sal is absolutely amazing. He really listens to his clients and takes into consideration their personal music taste and likes/dislikes. He knows how to incorporate any kind of song you want to hear into your wedding day, and does it in a way that attracts the other guests to the dance floor. No request was too extreme for Sal. Our bride/groom entrance song was a song that I'm pretty sure he's probably never had requested before, but he was on board for anything and so excited about our vision. And he played every single song we had asked him to play, adding music choices of his own that fit our taste perfectly. One of my bridesmaids said she was so tired from dancing but she couldn't bring herself to leave the dance floor because every single song was amazing. Sal truly knows what he is doing!!
Sal also did me a huge favor in helping me plan a surprise dance for my groom. I had choreographed a flash mob with the groomsmen and Sal was extremely helpful in the execution of the dance. Not only did he edit a song for us to use, but he constantly kept in communication with me from a separate email address of mine so that my groom never found out about our plan. There were literally times when Sal and I were emailing back and forth between two different emails, and he was always on top of things, always excited, and always ready to go.
I really cannot thank Sal enough for everything he did for our wedding day. From the beginning of the ceremony, right to the very last dance, he was absolutely amazing and so supportive and kind. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a DJ in the Yosemite area and I know that if we ever need one again, we know exactly who to call!!
Thank you so much to Sal, from the bottom of our hearts. We are so thankful you were our DJ!!
