Rick was the most wonderful and perfect deejay/emcee/photobooth provider we could have asked for. My now husband and I met with Rick way in advance at the wedding venue and scoped out all details -- including Rick's amazing idea about these LED stands that project light into... Read More glass vases filled with clear crystal glass filler. The result was spectacular and everyone was impressed with the uplighting and tiny details that make an event feel high quality and like an upscale party. Rick also took into account all of our requests for start/end timing of first dance songs, father/daughter songs, etc. Rick had the initiative to call us several times in advance to make sure all the expectations and details were clearly communicated for the big day. He also was very prompt about responding back to any questions we had. Rick also provided us a URL that guests could request songs through his online system and we distributed this out a couple of weeks before; this was a big hit and got guests pumped up about the big day and helped build the excitement. The photobooth area was so much fun and had a ton of hilarious props. One last comment was that Rick actually surprised us in a good way when his wife was taking pictures during the reception and the pictures would post on the projector screen in the back with text messages scrolling that guests sent during the reception. Then we actually had two photographers capturing all the great moments of the reception. I would recommend Rick to anyone.
