When we were deciding on a DJ, we didn't really know how to pick. Every one had the same website, with the same songs, and the same services offered. But Lou offers much, MUCH more. Lou doesn't just offer great DJing. Lou offers a wedding EXPERIENCE. He not only helped us pick our songs and gave us advice on the wedding planning process, he also helped us block out the reception and made us think about details we never even THOUGHT of (such as micing up the officiant during the wedding ceremony). As for the DJing itself: again, you're not just getting "man and an iPod". Lou seamlessly transitioned between songs, fading in and out so that the party never stopped moving. He also was constantly remotely checking the volume levels of speakers throughout the venue, so that those on the dance floor could keep the party going while those in the surrounding tables could actually HEAR each other talk. Lou was most definitely one of the best, if not THE best choice we made for our wedding. Highly recommended.
Lou was utterly and totally amazing. I can't even begin to express what an incredible job he did for our wedding. From our first communication, I knew I could trust him completely to take care of all of our audio and music needs, and he went above and beyond my expectations. He is extremely responsive and was open to all of our quirky ideas, including editing our first dance song and going over a script for a Korean tea ceremony. His website is amazing, and guided me to organize a precise schedule for the entire day (which was extremely helpful not only for the audio/music, but for us, our wedding party, and all of our vendors). As anyone reading this probably knows, wedding planning is extremely stressful and it is such a huge relief to have a vendor who responds quickly to emails and is happy to offer solutions to any problems you encounter. On our big day, he unfortunately was stung by wasps as he was setting up the audio for our ceremony and was obviously in pain. Despite this, he was the consummate professional, making sure that our ceremony audio was perfect for our guests, and then performing incredibly well at our cocktail hour and reception. We didn't micro manage the music too much, just shared our preferred genres and a few favorite artists. Our trust in him was well founded - his music choices were perfect. He frequently checked in with us to make sure that we hit all the major points in the schedule and kept the dance floor packed until closing time. He did such an incredible job that our guests even chanted that he should stay and play more songs, but unfortunately our venue kicked us out. :-p My new husband and I both agreed that he was the standout vendor of our wedding. Book him for your event now!
Lou was wonderful! We had a lot of songs we wanted to hear during the cocktail hour which he kindly put together, and then we basically gave him free reign for the rest of the reception to choose what he knew the crowd would like ... and by like, I mean love - all of our guests had a great time dancing the night away! Through our meetings and his detailed attention throughout the process we were fully confident that he would take care of everything - from the wedding ceremony sound/music, to the cocktail hour set-up, and straight into the night of dancing. He kept everything on pace without being too 'in your face' with the crowd, which was important to us. He even juggled a last minute decision to bring the ceremony inside due to weather without blinking an eye because he's literally prepared for anything. Overall, Lou was the absolute perfect DJ for our wedding and we were thrilled with our decision to work with him! THANK YOU, LOU!!
Lou was absolutely awesome. He was incredibly organized and helpful - he went totally above and beyond our expectations of a DJ on our wedding day. We chose Lou for three reasons: aesthetic, communication, and price. Lou’s website was clean and classy (unlike several other DJs we looked at) and that same classy aesthetic translated perfectly to our wedding. Another reason we chose Lou was his communication. He responds promptly to emails and questions, while also not pressuring you to choose him (another DJ kept calling me and badgering me for several weeks). Lastly, his prices were very competitive for the area. The reasons we’d choose Lou again are far greater. Pre-wedding, Lou was exceptionally organized. He sent us periodic emails to keep us on track with planning, and was always available to answer any questions we had about the wedding - whether music related or not. We “met” Lou via a Skype chat, and his demeanor was super friendly, confident, and relaxed. He listened to what my husband and I wanted for our wedding, and offered advice where we asked for it. Additionally, he got in contact with our other vendors (photographer, videographer, venue) to coordinate sound/timeslines/etc. and make sure that everyone was on the same page. On our wedding day, Lou arrived early to set-up. Everything was on-point, including the last-minute instructions I gave him. We had him DJ both our ceremony and reception. He helped to organize the bridal party and instruct them in their entrances. We had discussed the type of music that we wanted Lou to play prior to our wedding day, and Lou stuck religiously to our request (in fact, we had to tell him it was ok to accept song requests from the guests that didn’t fit into the genres we had previously discussed). Other than discussing genres, we put the control in Lou’s hands, and he kept the partying going all night. We had a solid 2.5+ hours of dancing, and everyone was EXHAUSTED by the time the night was over because the energy was so high the whole time. In addition to music, Lou would periodically check-in with us to see if there was anything we needed (well beyond his job description). Honestly, it feels like we should have paid him as not only as DJ but as a Day of Coordinator! It was an amazing day, and an awesome party - no small part in thanks to Lou. I would absolutely recommend him for anyone’s wedding or other special event, as he is amazing, experienced, classy, and most importantly knows good music and is willing to work with his clients to ensure that their vision is fulfilled. Thank you thank you thank you Lou for making our day unforgettable.
Want someone that can keep the party going all night, look no further! Through the whole entire planning process Lou was there for us every step of the way. He has an online system where you can make changes up until about 1 week before your wedding. If one still needs to make a change Lou is a phone call or email away. I received numerous compliments from guests during the reception who raved about how amazing he was doing. No matter the age everyone was on the dance floor the whole night. Lou would periodically check sound around the room to make sure it was at a comfortable level for all guest while maintaining the party atmosphere. I could not have better things to say about Lou. He IS the number one DJ!
Lou was an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He was the ultimate blend of personal and professional, and made sure to capture everything that we wanted, emotionally, on our special day. Between managing the tempo of the events and selecting the right music to accompany each moment, we were never left wanting more from him. We would highly recommend that everyone choose Paris Creative to usher in their union.
We hired Lou for our wedding in June of 2016. He was very professional and responsive throughout the entire process. We didn't want to do most of the standard wedding reception traditions. He took the time to listen and gave us some great recommendations for the big day. We only had to give him a short list of must-play songs and he took it from there. The dance floor was full all night!
Lou was the most organized of all of our vendors without being pushy. As I felt like I was having to stay on top of others, it was really a pleasure to deal with such a professional. His portal made it easy to organize timeline and songs we did and did not want. He did both our ceremony music and the reception too. Great job. From Tim: He rocked the party and was a real DJ, had his own turntables and did his own mixing.
Lou DJed at our New Year's Eve Wedding and he did a fantastic job keeping the party going and making sure that the evening ran smoothly. He was communicative throughout the planning process and his online portal made it easy to share the songs we wanted with him!
We hired DJ Lou for our wedding in August. He was great to work with, both in preparation for our big day and at our wedding reception. He answered emails quickly, made great suggestions, was always available when we had questions, and his website made it really easy to select the right kind of music for each part of our reception. He was able to customize everything to match exactly what we wanted, and definitely made our reception so much fun! So many people told us that they have never seen a wedding where the dance floor was as full as ours before, but DJ Lou was able to create that atmosphere for us! We would definitely recommend hiring DJ Lou to all of our friends and family.
This review is long overdue. One word to describe Lou and his services is AMAZING! Trust me you won't be disappointed on hiring him. From the start Lou always contacted us and sent us email reminders on things we had to submit prior to our wedding. He was probably the best vendor we worked with throughout the wedding process and on the wedding day. Lou will practically do anything and doesn't think any idea is stupid. My husband decided to do a funny entrance and Lou asked for details and delivered. We do feel bad that while he was setting up he almost broke his foot... Which he didn't thankfully, but we still felt horrible. Our wedding definitely couldn't have been memorable as it was without Lou's help. Thank you again Lou!
Working with DJ Lou was so easy. He was available to chat with us whenever we had questions or needed help in choosing songs for our wedding. He was quick to respond to emails and super helpful. Lou was a pleasure to work with and we would totally use him at our next wedding ;).
We used Lou for our wedding in the Hudson Valley. In the planning stages, he was very helpful. He was available by phone, email, skype, however we needed. That made planning our wedding from multiple states away much easier. He listened to what we wanted, and helped us consider things we didn't even know we had to think about in terms of music, introductions, flow of the evening, setup logistics, etc. He also provided some online tools to make song selections and planning easy and centralized. The evening of, he was on time, worked with the venue coordinator extremely well, and, true to his word, blended in to the background (he's not one of those shock jock LOOK AT ME DJ's). The musical selection kept our normally non-dancing families on the dance floor. Finally, he helped coordinate with the groom a surprise video for the bride, never spilling the secret. Would recommend to anyone looking for a DJ. He understands and follows what kind of music you want, what kind of atmosphere you want throughout the night, and helps to guide your evening without you having to worry about anything.
My husband and I are huge music fans but not huge dancers and we wanted to find someone that would help guide our cocktail style reception. We were looking for someone who really understood our love of music that didn’t fall in the top 20 charts and also wasn’t a crazy hyper Emcee style DJ. Lou is, simply put, the best at what he does. He LOVES music and you can tell from the amount of work he puts into the Skype meetings with his clients, the forms on his website that help him learn about the people he’s working with and his unbelievably easy going day-of-event demeanor that he truly cares My husband and I are laid back people and finding a DJ who felt right in with that vibe was priceless. Two major thumbs up for Paris Creative and we would recommend him in a heartbeat.
DJ selection Perfection!!! We wanted jumpin, dancin celebration....Lou delivered. The crowd demanded fewer breaks than scheduled and Lou just kept it rollin! Lou mixed musical genres perfectly so the dance floor was full with young and old alike. All Night Long.... Thank you Lou! All of our friends and family are still talking about how fantastic you were!
WOW, where do we start! My now Husband and I are more than pleased with DJ Lou! He went above and beyond to make our special day perfect! He was so organized, thoughtful, well prepared, sweet, kind, and listened very well! He was also very accepting and was more than happy to DJ our same-sex wedding! From the beginning of meeting Lou he took the time to listen to all of the kinds of music we liked and provided his years of expertise to make the perfect mix of music! All of our guests were so pleased by him as well and he had everyone up out of their seats dancing all night! Thank you so very much Lou, we loved having you as our DJ! Welcome to our family! Guerin & Stephen
Lou is the best! He is very professional and organized and went above and beyond for us- just a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend him! You won't regret it! Thank you for everything!
Lou was the perfect DJ for our wedding. From the initial planning stages up until our wedding day, Lou was incredibly helpful, prepared and easy to contact. From meeting with him in person and filling out our wedding information on the online profile, we felt that he perfectly understood what we wanted. On our wedding day Lou did a great job announcing everyone, playing the music that was right for our crowd, and kept everything well paced. I highly recommend him!
Lou was extremely easy to work with, had a great personality, & always prepared! Very important qualities to have at a wedding. From allowing us to choose our own dinner music to preparing his own awesome music choices for the reception, he was on top of everything. He even took a few requests from guests that we enjoyed as well. My favorite part was that he was able to accommodate my brother & I in performing a surprise song for my husband (which my husband loved). All in all, we had a great time working with DJ Lou, and we highly recommend him for his services. You will not be disappointed!
My husband and I got married in early June and worked with Lou as our DJ for the evening. From day 1 Lou was fabulous to work with! Emails were answered usually within a few hours and even over the weekend which I completely appreciated. He kept a great pace of our wedding day timeline and always made sure to keep my husband and I in the loop when we were approaching any special portion of our evening. You will not go wrong with Lou!
Lou was a total pro, through and through. Well prepared, great communication throughout the planning process, easy to use website to pick playlists and required songs. He did a good job both on the mic introducing people and moving things along, and with the music choices that we didn't select specifically. All around excellent experience. I recommend him highly for anyone in the Hudson Valley.
Lou was fantastic! He put us at ease throughout the entire process and was so responsive. He wasn't cheesy like other DJs we've seen at weddings in the past and really focused on getting people on the dance floor. We were so happy that we chose him to be our DJ, and you will too! :-)
DJ Lou Paris is without a doubt the best DJ we could’ve chosen for our event! Lou’s attention to detail, which included an easy-going meeting (in person, over skype or over the phone) is unparalleled. Asking such specific questions regarding family member names, music genre, timing, etc., left no room for error. He is so prepared, he is beyond professional and is truly concerned with making your day/music exactly what YOU want it to be. Lou did not just meet our expectations, he exceeded them. He was so helpful, from start to finish… from the ceremony to the last song, everything was timed and executed to perfection. If there were any hiccups throughout the night, Lou made sure we didn’t know about them! I know the fact that our dance floor was packed the entire night is the true barometer of his talent! I cannot say enough about how important music/dancing is to a fun wedding and Lou nailed it! Thanks again Lou! Julie & Rob Duquette 11/28/2015
Lou kept everyone warm and happy!!Reviewed on 11/22/2015 Samar K
My husband and I used a very complicated process to choose our DJ - we set up calls with three highly rated DJs one after the other on a Sunday, looked at each other after the calls, and said, "We are going to work with Lou." It was unanimous. You can just tell when you are going to work well with someone, and Lou from the start was friendly, professional, listened, and had a sense of humor. We could tell he understood who we are. And we never regretted that split second, gut decision. Lou was incredibly responsive to our questions and he was in touch with us to keep us on schedule in making decisions. His web portal was incredibly easy to use and a great way for us to give Lou all the information he needed. He made sure to confirm that he understood everything we wanted every step of the way and we appreciated it. Now for the wedding day. It was a freakishly cold day during an otherwise unseasonably warm fall. How do you keep people warm? A down and dirty dance party. I don't think I stopped dancing for 1 second and I freaked out in excitement over each song. We had two separate dance sets, before and after dinner, and Lou nailed them both. My friends told me after that they've never seen so many people on a dance floor at a wedding. Beyond the party, Lou kept the day running seamlessly from the pre-ceremony and ceremony music (we had a special touch during our kiss that Lou nailed), cocktail music, and dinner music. He knew and kept the schedule of the reception going - the speeches, special dances, introductions. Anyway, I could go on and on about how great Lou was. If you want to work with someone who is a professional and yet at the same time just a great guy that will know how to make your wedding just the way you want, work with Lou!!
Lou did an excellent job of making our wedding day even more special. He was able to seamlessly blend 90s hip-hop, current top 40 hits and British rock and roll. Our guest were primarily from the US, UK and Jamaica and he kept the dance floor busy all night. I would highly recommend Paris Creative for your special event.
