Dance, You Won't Stop - Stare, You Won't Turn Away

Why me? Good question, yet I can't answer that for you.

It's about your personality and my personality either clicking or not! It's simple!

Chris was the absolute best choice we could have made! Throughout the entire process he was so personable, helpful, and just NICE. We felt like he was just one of our friends that we could chat with and felt like he really got what we were looking for and what we wanted in a... Read More wedding DJ. There were multiple times where we would ask his advice on a certain song pick or just general wedding etiquette and he knew exactly how to answer our questions. He did not disappoint! People were on the dance floor the entire night and ever since our wedding we have gotten multiple comments from our guests. Some saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to and others talking about how great the DJ was - one person even said it was like he was part of the family! His happy go lucky attitude was the best thing we could have asked for on our special day. We would recommend Chris a million times over! Chris - thank you for making me and Dave's day the best it could possibly be! It was a day/night to remember and we owe a lot of that to you. XOXOXO

I had been a very stressed out bride since it's been a rough couple of years in my family. The last thing I wanted to do was plan a wedding, but our date was steadily approaching. Hiring Chris was the absolute best decision we made. He sets up 3 meetings and has an online... Read More spot to fill out your information. Your "homework" after one meeting is to fill out a bunch of songs on his website. That "homework" was actually kind of fun, jamming along to some of my favorite music. Did I really just say that, I had fun doing wedding stuff?? Yes, yes I did (thank you, Chris). Due to family drama I had to change a parent dance legit the night before the wedding. I emailed him around like 10pm.... 20 MIN later (10:20pm) he already emailed me back that he will take care of it. My anxiety vanished I knew he would take care of us (thank you Chris). At the actual wedding he is clever with how he gets people on the dance floor and EXTREMELY helpful to us. He was there telling us what was next, where we should be, and anything else we needed to know. He read the crowd and played the music that he knew would keep people up and dancing. If you want people to have fun at your wedding - if you want the planning part to not hurt so much - I would 100% recommend Chris. There is a reason he wins all kinds of awards. They should speak for themselves but they don't need to because look at his amazing reviews. This one included. He's a rockstar!

First things first, Chris is not "just a DJ", he is so much more than that!

From the cake cutting, to the fireworks, to the last dances - he helped to get us there!

We also utilized Chis Saraiva to provided uplighting for our reception, which made our ballroom look nothing short of spectacular.

Chris dj'd our wedding over Columbus Day weekend 2015 and I have to say - he was the vendor we worried least about. We met with him very early on in the wedding planning process (about 15 months out, he was the second vendor we chose) and at that point we knew basically nothing... Read More about wedding planning. (At this point I think I have a PhD in wedding planning but back then I was a freshman.) But fortunately, he did - and at our first meeting he asked us about 1,000 questions - which helped all 3 of us figure out what kind of wedding the 2 of us wanted. Over the next year he kept in touch to make sure we were all still in sync - and we always felt very confident that he would kill it on the big day. To be totally honest, I don't think I could remember one individual song that he played - the day itself is blurry about details. But one thing I do remember is that at one point in the middle of the reception I was getting hot in my suit and wanted to go outside to cool off, but it was a good song, so I was like, "Well, I'll wait a song." But then the next song was great. And the next. I never did get that cool-down break. As we've talked to our friends, each and every one has commented (unprovoked) that they have never been to a wedding with such good music (and we are talking about people who have been to 20 wedding over the past 3 years.) Every song was awesome and even as they spanned genres and decades, they all flowed, kept the party going and got everyone on the floor and having fun. One of my favorite parts of looking at the pictures so far has been to realize how packed the dance floor was and how everyone was hot, sweat, smiling and grooving. He also did a great job at the emceeing stuff (introducing the wedding party, the toasts, etc) and the uplighting looked AWESOME. The venue went from glamorous mansion (during the cake cutting) to nightclub with the flick of a switch - exactly what we had requested. FOUR THUMBS UP FROM NYC!
