Talk about the BEST DJ EVER! Based on our photographer's recommendation , my fiance and I met with to BRE to determine if they would be a good match for our wedding. Sure enough, after one meeting, we were sold! Honestly, hiring Eli and BRE was one of the best decisions we made... Read More for our wedding. From the beginning, we told Eli we wanted a big party and wanted all our guests out on the dance floor. He knew our vision and promised that our wedding would be one to remember. Even with my hesitations of how acoustics would be in our venue, Eli reassured us everything would work out perfectly. And perfectly it did. Eli is an extremely talented emcee and dj, and we were so fortunate for everything he did for our wedding. Our guests STILL talk about how amazing our music and dj were! He made sure our vision became a reality and us, and our guests danced the night away. Thank you BRE and Eli for being the best ever!

Burning River is seriously one of the best DJs I've ever listened too. Not only did they get all the wedding guests on the dance floor, they kept them there! Seriously my husbands uncle threw his back out dancing so hard! Everyone at our reception had a great time dancing the... Read More night away. It was such a great mix on new and old hits. We worked with Gene who was absolutely awesome, this guy listened as I couldn't find the shade of blush on the uplighting machines and made one up that was perfect! When I asked him to edit the father daughter song to adjust the tempo he remixed it so you barely knew anything was diiferent. They go above and beyond for their clients, they met with us on a late Friday night for a planning meeting to work around my hectic schedule. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had at a wedding but I may be a little biased.
