We could not have selected a better DJ for our wedding. From the start in meeting with Chris, he was attentive and assertive into listening to all of our needs for music at our wedding reception. He was patient in answering all of questions and addressing our concerns to... Read More create the best package to fit our needs which made us both completely comfortable to work with Limelight Entertainment. Our guests were on the dance floor all night and raved about the music selection. The online planning form is very user friendly and helped to organize what intro songs, first dances, special requests, etc. to play at the reception. Again, this made us feel very comfortable before the wedding in knowing that all details were finalized before the event. We also had a final call which Chris walked us through all the details and to answer any final questions we had, very professional. The Black Light Party was something very unique that made our night stick out from a lot of other weddings. Our guests kept coming up to us telling how much fun it was and were always on the dance floor. I can't remember the last time I saw my oldest brother and other family members dancing the entire night! The lightening we selected added an extra touch to the room and made our cake look even more beautiful! I am so happy we selected Limelight Entertainment as our DJ for our wedding because they made the day a success! Music is essential for your wedding and if you want your guests to have an amazing and fun time, select Limelight Entertainment for your next event! Thank you again to Chris and team for making our day so much fun and keeping the dance floor rocking! We are still talking to friends and family on how much fun our wedding was and it's because of you!

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.

Jackie and her team were outstanding!!!! From beginning to end Jackie was attentive, responded quickly to all of my questions, dedicated and just down right kind. We shot our engagement photos in Asbury Park and I can't tell you how many of my friends commented on how amazing... Read More they were. My best friend even ended up booking with Limelight right after! Also, I was running late to the shoot from getting my makeup done but Jackie patiently waited and stayed extra long to capture our vision. Some vendors can make you feel rushed but you won't get that with her!The day of the wedding, Jackie and her team were so fun and cool about the photos and what we wanted to capture. What I liked most about them was how passionate they really are about what they do. They make you feel so comfortable. I also want to add that with so many vendors that are involved with a wedding it can be hard to keep track of what you need to discuss with each but Jackie made the process so smooth with her detailed timeline. This made us feel confident that everything was under control. All in all, do yourself a favor and book with Limelight. You will not be disappointed, their service is A++++.

Chris and his team were outstanding, from the beginning of the process through the event itself. Chris guided us through the song selection process, giving us ideas on what couples typically do, and do not, want to hear at their wedding. He gave us ideas on songs for... Read More particular parts of the reception (i.e. cake song, anniversary dance, etc.), which made our planning process exponentially less stressful. Ultimately, Chris Marino is a professional, through and through. He had every detail planned, from the introductions until the last song, and kept the part going from start to finish. Our wedding was May 19, and we still have friends and family talking about how awesome our DJ was, and how much fun they had with the photo booth. I can do nothing but recommend Limelight Entertainment for your event. Chris and his team are professional, talented, and overall, fun! Thank you for making our night memorable, and for putting what felt like everything you had into our reception. You guys are awesome!

We had the pleasure of having both photography and DJ services from Limelight. It was an incredible evening, to say the least, and it was largely due to the flexibility and competency of these capable individuals. Jackie has an eye for the interesting and different, a bubbly... Read More carefree personality and a contagious smile. She joyfully led us through the process, never stressing out, and always capturing that perfect moment in a beautiful and more importantly UNIQUE way. Looking at the photographs now, we are in awe at how simply EPIC we all look. All thanks to Jackie. The DJ services were also great! Our wedding had A LOT going on - from three songs sung by the mother of the bride, to a slide show, to dances with specific timing, to VERY STRANGE music choices, various speeches, and impromptu schedule changes. We communcated so well, and adapted to the situations and changes at the drop of a hat. It was truly this moment of whatever you need, we will deliver. They cleverly filled in the moments of dullness, kept a mindful eye on my signals, and catered to every change I made suddenly with incredible efficiency and turnaround time. And they too, made us sound and look....EPIC. NOT TO MENTION - these guys take the time to make you feel special and send you surprise gifts! And also send you your USB in the coolest way we've every personally received a USB. These guys are really good, guys. Worth it.

The day of the wedding, I had Phil and Arty at the venue and I was already comfortable with them and knew these guys knew how to do their jobs well. I hit a snafu with the wedding coordinator at the venue but Arty was able to keep things on track and just kept the party going for all the guests. If I were to plan a wedding for someone, I would highly highly recommend Limelight. If I were to sum up who they are and what they do, I would leave it as … “They just get it!
