Selective Sound was a wonderful company to work with! They were very professional, and a lot of fun to work with. They offered us more options for the dj, lighting, photobooth, etc., that we could never think of! DJ Brian did a fantastic job of keeping up with our high energy... Read More guests. He was ready to go well before guests starting arriving and played fantastic music all night starting at 5 and ending at midnight. The wireless lighting that Jay R hooked us up with was incredible. The room started out as purple, changed to blue and pink for mother son and father daughter dance, then kept changing throughout the night to match the music. We are beyond happy that we decided to to with Selective Sound!!

I love this company! Selective Sound is so professional and organized. I never had to worry about anything. The initial meeting was great, we met with Jay R. He was so personable and knowledgeable about all facets of the business. We did our uplighting, DJ, photobooth, &... Read More videographer through them. We could not have made a better choice. Everyone was super professional and on time. Anytime I had a question, I received an email within a few hours, if it was late at night, by mid-morning the next day. The photobooth and videographer worked like a well oiled machine. No worries for this bride! We received the book of the photos that night and I'm sure the video will be just as wonderful as everything else. Our DJ Marcus, was absolutely amazing. He was so professional and organized. Anyone planning a wedding knows how hectic it can be, this was one area that I did not have to worry about. Marcus had everything taken care of and I could focus on my guests. He kept the party going and definitely knows how to read a crowd. My daughter's sweet sixteen is coming up and I would definitely call them again for her party. If you are looking for one (or several) thing(s) to check off of your list, go with Selective Sound. You will not have to worry about the organization, professionalism or quality of their work. They do it all.

Wow, I don't even know where to start. We had Patrick as our DJ for our wedding last month. Leading up to the wedding day, Patrick was very hands off during the months we were the most busy. Patrick communicated very well during the few months leading up to the ceremony (when... Read More details were finalized). He went above and beyond for us in SO many ways. To start, he helped our pastor with the sound system and was able to work with all of our vendors to ensure the schedule, timing, and sound was right. The best part about it all is that our dance floor was packed all night, I mean PACKED. Our photographer said she couldn't get many pictures because it was so packed! We had many different age groups represented but Patrick found a way to tie everyone in the whole night. (we paid for shuttle buses to take people to the hotel starting at 9:45 and NO ONE left until 11!) Our wedding guests are still raving about our DJ and how awesome he was. They were even chanting "one more song!" once the reception was over! We truly had the best night ever and that's a huge thanks to Patrick! Thank you Selective Sound, we will DEFINITELY be recommending you in the future!

We heard everything we asked for and didn't have a single line dance played :) HIGHLY recommend. We also rented a photobooth from Selective Sound for our wedding, which everyone loved! They provided us with an album of all of the photobooth photos, and people were able to sign next to their pictures too! It is a great album that we will be able to cherish for years. All of our guests said they loved it, and the staff person working the booth was so pleasant and fun - he even jumped in a few of the pics!! Selective Sound is the way to go.

Read More left me feeling over or underwhelmed, professional and knowledgeable. Being a Bride who wanted to feel that nothing was left out of my day - JayR quoted everything under the sun that was a possibility to add into our day and we made decisions from there. We had uplighting, floor washes, GOBO's, pipe and drape, photobooth, dancing on the clouds, DJ and a sound system for our ceremony, (although I am sure I am missing something else SSE did for us!) Rick, our DJ, we met a few months before our wedding day. We gave him a very tall order. No requests, no line dances, club vibe from beginning to end! This was not typical for him as he said he usually likes to take care of the entire crowd for weddings and play songs from all genres and for every age group to appease every guest. We were adamant on him sticking to our wishes and he did! Literally - from after our first dance until the end of the night - there was not an open spot on the dance floor. It was bumping and packed the WHOLE evening. He played from our request list, songs that he chose, and even a few requests that ended up being perfect!!! Later in the night he played some 80's songs that made the very few people in their seats get on the dance floor. My uncles were happy! Seriously, could not have asked for a better DJ! He was timely with our evening, went in the exact order for speeches, dances, etc. He even played a hurricane horn which is an inside joke with my husband and his groomsmen! What DJ has a hurricane horn on queue?!?! It was everything we wanted our reception to be. If you want the best DJ, the best detailed oriented team - JayR and Rick from Selective Sound are your guys. Cannot praise them enough!!! THANK YOU!

He met with us prior to the event to gather the songs we liked for our reception, and we were very happy with both the dinner songs and the dance floor songs he played. He kept everyone on the dance floor until the last minute of the... Read More reception. We received many compliments on the quality of the music during and after our wedding. The only hiccups occurred during the family and bridal party introductions at the reception location. The bride's parent's last name was pronounced incorrectly and had to be corrected via one of her parents shouting the correct pronunciation. Also, a bridal party couple was introduced twice, right before the bride and groom introductions, creating an awkward pause and some confusion among the bridal party. When the bride and groom were finally introduced, it was as "Mr. and Mrs., Dr. and Mrs." also leading to some awkwardness at the outset of our entrance, and a little hesitation and concern on our part that the rest of the night would go smoothly. Our concern was unfounded, however, because the music and the rest of the services were absolutely perfect. Aside from wishing there was a little more preparation for the wedding introductions, we loved every minute of Selective Sound's services. We also purchased and recommend the uplighting services that they provide, which created excellent ambiance both during dinner and on the dance floor. Overall we'd recommend Selective Sound to friends and family, perhaps with the caveat to double check those introductions.
