When my now-husband and I started wedding planning, we agreed that having a great DJ was one of our highest priorities. We are so grateful to have found MyDeejay, specifically DJ Anthony. We could not have had a better experience with the compa...
From start to finish, MyDeejay was extremely professional and easy to work with. We were initially drawn to their excellent reviews and their philosophy: their business model is transparent (no hidden upcharges) and their DJs aren't gimmicky emcees trying to hog the spotlight. In our initial phone call, Anthony was clear that our wedding guests would know why they were there -- to celebrate our marriage! -- and that his job as the DJ would be to keep the dance floor packed and the evening moving along smoothly, without being cheesy or dragging people onto the dance floor. He asked a number of great questions about our musical tastes and the age demographics of our guests, which really impressed us. Ultimately, your wedding is a party for all your guests, so we appreciated him getting a read on the age groups that would be represented in advance so he could play music that would appeal to all different generations.
In the lead-up to the wedding, MyDeejay sent us a link to their planning system, which is super convenient and allows you to specify your timeline and all your song choices for key moments (parent-child dances, bouquet toss, last dance, etc.). We could also enter a "definitely play," "maybe play," and "do not play" list, which was great. We kept our requests fairly minimal, since we trusted Anthony to read the crowd, but it was helpful to get our few song requests in before the big day. More importantly, it was helpful to specify the type of music we *didn't* want played (i.e., cheesy line dances and songs that we really didn't like or found offensive). Anthony was also super awesome when it came to editing a few key songs, including our first dance, which we wanted to trim from ~4 minutes to ~2 minutes. We gave him a very specific list of edits, because we wanted to keep key parts of the song while cutting sections out of the middle, and we were blown away by how natural his edit sounded -- it was perfect, not choppy or awkward-sounding at all.
Most importantly, on our wedding day, Anthony absolutely killed it. He nailed every cue, was an elegant and professional emcee when it came to wedding party intros and announcements of key events like the bouquet toss, and kept the dance floor packed all night. He even offered to bring us drinks, which was extremely nice of him. We got a huge number of compliments on how awesome the dance party was and how great Anthony was. He truly knocked it out of the park and we were beyond thrilled, as were our parents.
Anthony, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making our wedding the best night of our lives! To the engaged couples out there -- we cannot recommend Anthony and MyDeejay more highly.
