My husband and I got married on 9/1/8 at Seascape Beach Resort in Aptos and SIM is one of their preferred vendors (for good reason too) so we went with them for our wedding DJ/MC services. Adam was our DJ/MC for the night. They fit into our bud...
get, had an opening on Labor Day Weekend and the feeling and vibe we got when we spoke with Shawn (one of the main owners) was just the "right" feeling you should get when you book a vendor.
We ended up booking SIM in late 2017 & got in contact with our assigned DJ, Adam Millman. We set up an in person meeting with Adam to get to know each other, which I really appreciated! The one thing I hate about working with large vendors is with these large companies, there is always the head business owner and then they may assign you another person as your actual DJ or photographer, etc - and you never end up meeting the person till the wedding day, so this in person meeting was much appreciated! Over the course of the year of wedding planning, my husband and I adjusted our wedding playlist several times and about a month before the wedding, had our final meeting with Adam where we went over all the music selections and timeline of wedding. I left that meeting feeling ready and excited for the wedding!
Day of wedding arrived and Adam & his assistant were at the venue well before their scheduled time to get everything set up, testing mics and the music. Adam played all the right songs that we had selected and during the reception, kept the dance floor packed! He took requests all night and did an amazing job with the 45 minutes he had for open dancing. We ran way over our timeline and speeches took forever, so we ended up not having as much time for open dancing and to get through our MUST PLAY list, but he worked with it and played the best songs possible in that time frame! He even rolled with it when my Maid of Honor asked him to do a "rapid fire money dance" since we had to skip over the more formal one due to timing. Now if only our reception could of gone until 11:00pm, that would of been perfect!! Adam was great in playing all the music that my friends wanted to hear + the music the older folks wanted to hear.
Why am I only giving 4 stars?! So, now after getting our wedding video back, I have come to notice that there were actually a few audio problems that should not of occurred, especially with SIM working at Seascape so much! During my walk down the aisle, the song was WAY too loud and during one part it made a very bad high pitched noise and hurt everyone's ears. I didn't notice because I was too focused on my husband at the end of the aisle, but my guest did. Additionally, during the ceremony, there was a ton of feedback and it seemed like while we were saying our vows, we were echoing a ton. For working at this venue so much, I feel like these issues should of been resolved or tested prior. Not the end of the world, but something that could of been fixed. Other than that, everything was great and Adam followed out timeline to a T - announcing everything as stated and made sure the dance floor was packed all night! Thank you again!
