ll the information he needed for the big day, we could tell he knew what he was doing and we were confident that we were in good hands. In the midst of all the other craziness it was nice to have something NOT to worry about! When they say DJ ‘Butlers’ they are not kidding. Jared found the wedding party outside taking pictures and he delivered drinks to us without even asking! He continued this the rest of the night all while keeping our dance floor full the whole night. We have had countless compliments on our DJ and we agree with every single one! Can’t recommend DJ Butlers, especially Jared, enough!

He was amazing from the start. Very professional and kind! We met with him for a meeting prior to the wedding and he answered all of our questions and more! We got so many compliments of our DJ from our wedding. Ryan wasn’t only making sure music was on point, he made sure everything was going on as scheduled. From the ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner and reception, he made sure everything happened on schedule! He was fun and helpful, super professional! He listened to what we wanted but also used his skills to deliver a great performance. Jason (my husband) and I always said that music was really important to us at the wedding. Jason is also a musician himself.
Ryan was the best DJ ever!! Highly recommend!

ven more memorable!
One example of this was that during our ceremony, we had a sand ceremony instead of a unity candle. Prior to us pouring the sand, my brother (who officiated) had talked a lot about the movie the Princess Bride (it's my favorite movie) and alluded to it multiple times. We had not thought to have music playing during our sand ceremony and my brother didn't talk the whole time. So it was quiet for a minute and all of a sudden the main song from the Princess Bride started playing!!! It made that moment so much more special and brought me to tears. I thought that my brother had asked Lewis to play that song. Turns out that Lewis had queued up that song on his own and when he noticed that we were still going with the sand but it was quiet, HE PLAYED THAT SONG FOR US! I was absolutely blown away and so incredibly grateful for that!!! And that's just one instance!
During our phone call before the wedding, I mentioned that I loved 70s and 80s rock but we wanted a mix of current and past music. Boy did he deliver! Every single song brought people to the dance floor, young and older :) We had so much fun with him that we added an extra hour! - speaking of, that was so easy!!! We were able to add time NIGHT OF! Which was so helpful and convenient!
He truly helped us have the time of our lives and I can not recommend him enough!

Ryan was inclusive to all types of music which made everyone feel like they’d know some songs to dance to. Ryan seriously killed it with the music and announcing. We have received SO MANY compliments about how awesome our dj was. It’s honestly been one of the most talked about parts of our wedding!

The company provides you with an extremely organized packet that you would fill out according to your wedding timeline (what songs you want played and when to play them, names of important bridal party members/family etc.) I LOVED how Lewis met with us a week before our wedding and took the time and effort to go through this packet with us. He gave me his honest opinions when I needed them and he didn't make us feel silly at all about some of the un-traditional wedding details we didn't incorporate. On the day of our wedding he made sure our officiant had a microphone check so that our guests would be able to hear him speak. Lewis took charge of situations when nobody else would listen to me (frustrating for a bride!) and we are so thankful that he was a HUGE part of our wedding. He is also so much fun and played some BOMB A** tunes ;) the timing of the songs we chose was played out flawlessly and Lewis genuinely loves what he does so please book him for your event ahead of time so that you can experience his greatness! If you're an OCD bride like I was and you want someone who you feel comfortable making very specific requests to then Lewis would be a perfect DJ for you big day.

Greg is one of the best DJ's you’ll find in the tri-state. From the time you take that first meeting with him to hammer out all the details, both big and small about your special day, Greg makes sure that nothing is left open ended. Not only do...
es he blend professionalism with personal touches effectively, he makes you feel like you are in total control of the entire process. Which is exactly how it should feel, as he played everything we wanted, while knowing exactly how to judge the room on his timing.
At no point from the time Greg showed up to our venue until the time he drove away did he not have an exact feel for how things should go with the music. Everything flowed seamlessly, he played or didn’t play exactly what we asked for and most importantly he was in contact with us enough to not feel like we had to do his job for him, but that we also didn’t feel like he was going rogue.
DJ Butlers is also reasonably priced compared to other companies who offer similar services. If you’re looking for a professional, well-run company who provides excellent staffing, DJ Butlers is where the buck stops. Make sure you ask for Greg Ruschman!

ime anything happened like the cake cutting, he made sure to announce it so that every guest knew what was going on.
Fred made every guest I had feel included and apart of our wedding. My mom gave a welcome speech and later said to me, "I wasn't expecting that I'd have to pause during my speech so much for people to clap when I was introducing certain guests. But, I think that Fred helped us prepare an evening where guests felt just so included in what was going on that they literally felt apart of everything.”
As soon as the dance floor opened, it was immediately packed and stayed that way until the reception was over! I heard so many times that my guests were sore the next day from dancing so much- even the ones who work out regularly!
I am a wedding photographer myself and I had a lot of out of town guests coming in for my wedding, so my choice in entertainment was very carefully thought of. I did extensive research and selected Fred after reading all of his rave reviews and meeting him in person. From the beginning of my planning process and until the end, he helped me plan my wedding reception from start to finish to make sure that we had a rockin' party.
The way Fred went over everything and helped me plan made the evening run so smoothly at our reception. He’s been doing this for 25 or 30 years…well you can really tell! He is very experienced and treated me as a client as if I were a million dollar client. I have already been recommending him and will always continue to because of all the weddings I’ve photographed and been at as a guest, he just blows everyone out of the water! Book Fred- he will make your wedding guests say, "That was the best wedding I've every been to!"

From the very beginning Ryan was very easy and knowledgeable to work with. Being the “Master of Ceremonies” his outgoing personality made him standout in all the right ways.

Just a few examples: Ryan customized the song my husband and I were dancing to, he helped the caterers serve our seated dinner, and he got drink refills (and not just for the bride and groom) just to name a few. He truly is the whole wedding package! He stuck to our timeline, had no problem getting the guests’ attention and really made our night go by smooth and flawlessly.
After our wedding we had multiple guests mention all his hard work and compliment the evening. I have recommended him and will continue to recommend him to anyone I meet needing DJ services. I promise you will not be disappointed! He was by far one of my favorite vendors I booked for our wedding!
