Cornelius was an absolute pleasure to work with. At our initial meeting, he had a slide show up to show all of the services that Thunder and Lightning offers. He was very flexible in his meeting times. A week before the wedding, we met with him to go over what type of music we... Read More wanted at our reception, as well as go over some details. We had a gobo, and the uplighting around the room. When my husband and I arrived at our reception, the uplighting was amazing! It made the room look fantastic. Cornelius and his assistant were very professional, and not cheesy like you might see from other wedding DJ's. They played great music, and all of our guests were very impressed. We would recommend Thunder and Lightning to anyone!

Excellent DJ!

Thunder & Lightning did an excellent job with the music at our reception! We had tons of compliments about the music--dinner through dancing. They did an amazing job of feeling out the crowd and getting people dancing. The dance floor was packed all night long!

Flexible and fun!

We were unsure about the start time for the DJ, since if the weather was good we were going to have our ceremony outside. The DJ told us to let him know the day of what time was best -- making them very flexible. We also added an hour to our reception than originally planned and... Read More they had no problem continuing since everyone was having so much fund. He took the time to meet with us and made booking and the day of go smoothly. Highly recommend! They also take photos and post them online.
