My husband and I can't say enough great things about Limelight Entertainment! Chris was an outstanding DJ and his team was awesome throughout the entire day. We only gave him a few song suggestions and let him run with the rest. He kept the party going the whole night and the... Read More dance floor was packed. Even though we lived a few hours away, Chris made the planning process so easy and it was nice that we didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. If you are looking for a fun, caring, professional, and talented DJ then Chris is your man! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and we would recommend this company in a heartbeat.

Chris and Cameron were by far the best decision we could have made for our wedding! From the beginning Chris went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and confident that our backyard wedding would go off without a hitch. The day of was amazing! Chris and... Read More Cameron provided incredible service from the set-up, to the lighting, to the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We didn’t provide much guidance on a playlist for the reception and they did a phenomenal job selecting the music… they had EVERY guest out on the dance floor the entire night, and were kind enough to honor our guests with an encore after hearing their chant of “one more song.” It was a blast and people are still talking about it nearly a month later. We would highly recommend them to anyone needing an entertainment company for an event!! Thank you again Chris and Cameron!

Absolutely incredible experience with Limelight. To put it bluntly, they know their stuff. I was actually impressed with how little I had to interact with them on the day of the wedding. One four minute conversation discussing order of introductions, order of events, and that... Read More was it. I'd recommend leaving the music choices up to them (outside of special songs you want to hear). The majority of our young friends said it was the most fun wedding and DJ they'd ever witnessed. Worth every single penny, Limelight 10/10 will make your wedding fun.

Speaking for my husband and myself, we have nothing but AMAZING things to say about the entire Limelight Entertainment team.

In my mind, music is the most important part of any wedding and bad music can really kill the night. My husband and I had very specific requests that were not super typical (mix of boy bands, EDM and pop punk) and Chris accommodated everything! We all had a blast and got... Read More compliments on the music nonstop. Chris is really easy to work with and has an awesome online portal that makes preparing for the event super convenient. We had a lengthy conversation with him a month prior to the wedding where he really put us at ease. We will definitely recommend Limelight to anyone! Also, make sure you get the photobooth! It was a huge hit all night and the pictures were priceless!

Chris & his team go above and beyond. Our guests weren't really the dancing type, yet the dance floor was never empty. He combines the music & lighting perfectly to set the mood.

I would give Limelight Entertainment WAY more than 5 stars if I could - we cannot thank them enough!!

Chris answered all of our questions, even if I asked him the same one 10 times; and he was extremely patient with our last minute changes to our ceremony / reception.

Jackie and Chris are a team to beat (I think that is an impossible mission). They are amazing, they work together perfectly. They know each other so well, you will not have to think about what ifs. They also know their team like they do themselves. See why it is an... Read More impossible task to beat their professionalism, their ability to know what is needed and to feed off each other and just know. In the right spots at the right time.

My husband and I recently got married on July 14th 2017 and had hired Chris and his team to DJ our wedding. I am pretty picky with dancing music and wanted everyone to be on the dance floor the entire time while also singing along to the music. Chris had my husband and I fill... Read More out a sheet which told him which music we liked and had us list every piece of our wedding that we needed to start our reception. He respected any songs we did not want to play and also nailed our opening songs for our bridal party. I also made a request that Chris play 'Be Our Guest' while dinner was being served and he did just that! When we spoke on the phone right before the wedding, Chris made sure he got every single detail down from how to say pronounce names, to which version of certain songs I preferred. Chris made our wedding the best day of our lives and it never would have been the same without him! I highly recommend this company!!!

Communicating with Chris and planning this part of the wedding was very easy - and that's without ever meeting him prior to the wedding day because we live 90 minutes away from Limelight HQ! The reviews speak for themselves, though, and so we handled everything through emails... Read More and phone conferences. Chris consistently responded quickly to any inquiries or questions and was willing to accommodate a few changes from the original plan -- whether it was providing music for the ceremony, bringing in a photo booth, or adding uplighting for the reception, Chris' attitude was always "No problem, we can do that!" We had a few little quirks to how we utilized music for our wedding, but rather than question our ideas or attempt to steer us back to the more conventional approaches, Chris was enthusiastic about the personal touches we wanted to include. Determining the style of music for the night felt more like talking music with a friend than discussing plans with a vendor, and when in doubt, we trusted Chris' instincts. Everyone who danced at our wedding was raving about the music selection, and Chris did a great job of "reading the room" to figure out what songs or style of music would work best at that time; it's clear he was not operating off of a pre-set list, but rather he was making decisions in the moment based on the feeling of the guests. Oh - and the photo booth is a no-brainer if you're able to include it. All in all, fantastic work from Limelight... completely recommend!

Limelight and crew are amazing, they took our vision and made it a reality. My wife and I are big music fans, so making sure that we had the right feel and flow for our wedding was every important to us. Limelight did not disappoint, Chris understood how important this was to us... Read More and took the time to make sure everything was perfect! Throughout the whole process he was in contact with us and no request was a problem. We were even adjusting the music the week before the wedding and he was responsive and went above and beyond to make sure even our hardest requests were granted and he was open and honest with us about everything. We had an outdoor venue and there was a weather scare that week, i informed him that the venue may have to be tented and that we may want some up lighting, instead of being like most vendors and just trying to get as much money out of us as possible, he informed us that even with the tenting we still wouldn't get the most out of the up lighting and that it may not be worth the money but left the decision up to us. Unfortunatly Chris was booked the day of our wedding but informed us two of his crew would be there that night, at first I was a little hesitant as he was the one we did all the planning with and were concerned everything we talked about wouldn't be communicated to the crew working our wedding. Well as soon as the wedding started I knew that Chris' crew was an extension of him and everything we had discussed worked out as we had planned. I cant say enough about the amazing job the Limelight crew did and can't wait for the next event we get to plan with them. Now on to the photography, Chris' wife Jackie is awesome! She makes you feel like her best friend the minute you meet her. My wife and I have been very fortunate to be in or at a couple weddings Jackie had photographed and she does not disappoint. Typically most photographers have a typical style and shoot most weddings the same way. This is not the case with Jackie, she is the consummate professional, she gets a feel for the couple, the venue, and the crowd and adjusts to make every shot perfect. She knows what she wants out of her shots and doesn't waste time, by the time you may be over the picture taking you have a drink in your hand and are already done pictures. She has a structured time line when she shows up that is very bride/groom friendly but is also very flexible for any additional photo op's you may want. Up to this point we have only seen a few of the photos from our wedding and loved everyone, we can't wait to see the rest. Lastly do the open air photo booth, if that's your thing, its a great time and leave great memories. I could go on all day about Limelight, make the right choice and choose them for your next event.
