Selective sound entertainment was amazing from start to beginning.

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!

As SSE says, they are not just a DJ company. We worked with Jay R who planned the NYE wedding of our dreams and brought our vision to life. He gave us suggestions (respective to our budget) of services to utilize to make our wedding unique and exactly what we wanted. We used 2... Read More 70 inch TV's for SocialCast- a program where guests can hashtag photos and they will then be displayed on the TVs. We also used the TV's to live stream the ball drop. Lastly, SSE provided confetti cannons for the midnight celebration. This was truly a production and work of art. We had sound technicians, someone to run the TV's and of course our DJ/MC Marcus. I could tell all staff were prepped and organized and knew exactly what to do when it came to our wedding. DJ Marcus understood the age and vibe of the crowd but also did a phenomenal job pleasing our guests with their song requests. Marcus and the entire staff was very professional and prepared. I would recommend SSE, Marcus, and Jay R to anyone.

When we first started planning our wedding, the DJ & videographer were two of the most important parts for me, so we had phone interviews with a TON of companies. After talking to Jay R, it was a no brainer. He answered all of our questions and brought things up we had never... Read More even thought of. Jay R was also our DJ the day of & seemed to understand exactly what I wanted without me having to say much at all! I was more laid back about everything which could have gone badly if we didn't have such an amazing DJ. I was planning my wedding from out of town & after hiring them we had several planning calls before the big day. The day of, Jay R worked with my cousin/officiant & families through so many details that I never even thought of and made it unbelievably stress free. He was so awesome at keeping everything on track during the reception. I can't say enough positive things and we are still getting compliments on how wonderful everything was and our awesome DJ. We also used Selective Sound for uplighting & videography. Uplighting was gorgeous in the City View Room at Windows on the River. Matt was our main videographer and he was so amazing as well. Him & my photographer bonded right away and worked together to get some incredible shots. I can't wait to see the finished product. I've learned over the past year that planning a wedding is insanely stressful, but if you want to take some of that stress away, Selective Sound is your best choice :)

Our DJ for our event was JR and I cannot say enough good things about him or the service that he provided. From the moment we signed our contract through the end of the reception (and even now!) he has been amazing. His communication back and forth kept us calm in even the... Read More craziest of times and the services he provided were above and beyond what we ever thought we would have at our wedding. The first service was DJ and boy did he have everyone dancing! He had the crowd going wild from the moment the dance floor opened until the night ended! Our guests were all asking who our DJ was - before the wedding was even over! The second service was our uplighting - if I could post pictures, you would see the amazing job he did transforming our venue. To top off all this beautiful decor he provided us with the much sought after mirror photo booth - which was a huge hit and produced absolutely awesome memories. The kicker of the night was the sparkular display which was perfectly timed and had the crowd roaring all night. Not only is SSE amazing to work with but he is easy and will make sure that you get through all the necessary evils of a wedding while still making sure you have an awesome time! I wish we could re-do our wedding all over again and we would hire JR and SSE in a heart beat!
