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... Read More 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!

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...

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... Read More 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!

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... Read More 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.

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,... Read More 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

Thank you so much for letting me be a part of one of the most important days of your lives. It was an honor and a privilege being your DJ.

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... Read More 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!!

DJ Paris Creative is awesome!! My husband and I got married a few weeks ago and Lou was the DJ for our reception. From the first meeting, we knew he was the real deal- genuinely interested in making our event exactly what we envisioned and what we wanted. Lou was super... Read More helpful every step of the way- flexible and convenient schedule meetings, very quick responses to my numerous DJ and various wedding related emails, and assisted in planning the timing of the entire reception. The website DJ Paris Creative uses is extremely user friendly and was a great help in planning every aspect of our reception. I am a somewhat anxious person, but by the time our wedding day came, we knew it was so well planned out that we had no worries and just enjoyed the day (as we should but I have heard a lot of brides said was not the case for their own weddings). We chose the professionals we did for reason, right?!?! We had a mix of ages and interests at the reception, and we decided to be selfish (as we should be) and play the music we wanted played. Lou was excellent and kept the cocktail hour exactly as imagined with our music choices, he cut the music at perfect times (for a bride who actually doesn't like to be the center of attention for the beginning dances), and his professionalism the entire time was definitely worth mentioning. Lou was so good at checking in with us (seeing if we are enjoying our selves, things that had to be changed at a moments notice, and keeping us up to speed on necessities) while almost not existing and promoting the day to almost run seamlessly without the DJ taking the spotlight (the biggest pet peeve of my husband and I). Added bonus- no hidden fees, completely spells out the prices on his website and quite affordable. I cannot rave enough about DJ Paris Creative (Lou) and would definitely recommend him for your next special event!
