Hiring Toast Ent. for our wedding was the BEST choice I made in all of my planning. The pricing was the most affordable of anything I had researched and the services we received far exceeded anything I imagined. I chose the Fairy Tale Package, which included a day of... Read More coordinator, photographer, DJ, and Photo Booth. I also ended up adding on a bartender later, which was quick and easy thanks to Walter's exceptional response time and their easy to use client website. Liz, my coordinator, set up two face to face meetings in which she went over every detail and made me feel truly at peace and comfortable that the day would go smoothly. She continued to go above and beyond by reaching out to my vendors and taking care of details, small and large. I will be forever grateful for her. Jon was our photographer and there just aren't enough great things I can say about him. He is calm, kind and professional. The wedding day was chaotic but I remember Jon always being there, sometimes putting his camera aside to ask if I needed anything or to help without even being asked. I can't wait to see the images he captured and I am thankful for his presence on our big day. Vance was our DJ and MC and from the moment we first spoke on the phone I knew he was going to bring the PARTY- and that he did! The day after the wedding, my bridesmaids couldn't stop raving about what an amazing DJ we had! Toast ENT was greatly responsible for the best day my husband and I could have ever imagined. They are a team of professionals who genuinely care about the people they serve. One of the greatest advantages of using the package was that the whole team already knew each other well and had worked together, so they were able to put together a seamless day just by communicating with each other. If you think you can't have the greatest party of your life without spending a fortune, think again and hire TOAST.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Toast Entertainment. I worked with Chase (DJ), Heather Wise (photographer), and Daniel Ka (videographer) for my wedding at Barr Mansion in March of this year, and all three of them were INCREDIBLE! They fielded a million emails about... Read More everything under the sun, were patience, kindness, warm, and expertly created the perfect environment for the best day of my life thus far. There is not a better deal monetarily than Toast Entertainment for the amazing quality of work that they do in all aspects of services. Their packages are absolutely the most competitive out of every vendor I researched (and I searched A LOT). They are professional to the extreme, while also being really lovely human beings. My wedding was absolutely perfect due to their hard work, diligence, great listening skills, and just immense talent. I would recommend Toast Entertainment to every couple getting married in Austin, and for any other service that requires music, photography, and videography. Thank you so much to Toast for an unforgettable day!

My husband and I were blown away by the service that Aaron and Liz gave us. We knew y’all had great reviews but my goodness…. both of them were MAJOR parts of making our day so phenomenal. Liz - There aren’t enough words to describe all that she did for us. She made me feel calm... Read More and cared about the entire day. I could not imagine my day without her. I will absolutely telling everyone I know that they NEED to hire her for their own weddings. Aaron - Blown away by his ability to read the crowd and seamlessly play music throughout the night. I was shocked how full the dance floor was the entire night and I completely credit that towards his skills. All around exceptional work!

Toast was amazing! We used them for our DJ and photographer and both were outstanding! Our DJ was John Rust and he was the best! He was extremely nice and very flexible with last minute changes. He made sure that he pronounced everyone's name correctly and was very friendly to... Read More everyone there. He did a great job of playing everything we had wanted while mixing in some stuff of his own that matched the vibe! Our photographer was Misty and she was amazing too! She was very laid back but had enough authority to get everyone listening and where they needed to be. She was very quick but made sure to get any shots that we wanted. She was great with the guests and an overall joy to have around! On top of that she gave my husband and me some excellent suggestions for things to do on our honeymoon. I would recommend Toast Entertainment to everyone! They were professional, quick to answer any questions or make any changes, their website is very user friendly and makes everything a lot easier.

ToastEnt could not have been a better fit for our wedding. We had a DIY wedding but really wanted to splurge on a DJ and a Photo Booth to keep the reception interesting - and we could NOT be more pleased! I am so grateful we found Toast; Walter is PHENOMENALLY responsive and any... Read More time I have reached out, I have not waited more than a few HOURS to receive a response...even on the weekends! The online portal you use to coordinate your schedule and fill out your music preferences/likes/dislikes/etc is extremely user-friendly and convenient, and this portal is also where you can make payments on the go. Rust, our DJ, was SO much fun! He was having the time of his life with us on stage singing and dancing but was still extremely attentive and kept us on schedule. My only regret is that we did not have a larger budget so we could not book them as our vendor for EVERYTHING! Seriously, if you want a responsive and professional team, these are the people to work with! I cannot wait for them to send us all the photos from the photo booth! We will definitely be booking them again for any future party needs!

Garrick Hutchins was the BEST wedding DJ, ever! I'm so so glad we chose Toast Entertainment/Garrick. I would recommend him a million times over. He kept the party going ALL NIGHT LONG. The guests could not stop talking about how great the music was. The ceremony music was... Read More flawless. I had chosen a lot of music that was not listed in the database and it was no issue at all for Garrick. He went above and beyond. I can't wait to get the wedding video back so I can relive the experience. Thank you, Garrick, you rock!

So beyond grateful for Toast Entertainment! They provided me with my day of Coordinator (Stephanie), my DJ (Danny), and my photographer (Aleisha and her assistant). All were exceptional! Aleisha was very sweet and professional in getting two divorced families to cooperate with... Read More one another. Not easy but she did it! I can’t wait to see the photos!!! Danny was awesome not only with the music and keeping the guest on their feet but as the mc as well. Very cool to work with! Loved the music and the transitions! And Stephanie was my life saver!! She was amazing! Every detail of the wedding was done with her help! She was running around everywhere and keeping me updated throughout the night for whatever came next. Without her I don’t think anything would have gone smoothly. Daniel and I are so grateful for the entire team!!! The guests loved the entire wedding! Thank you all sooo much!!

Toast Ent. was amazing, thorough and prompt. First, they have a planning form on their site, which is very specific and goes through the entire event. You just have to enter what you want and when and they take over from there. The website also allows you to pick your songs.... Read More I had almost my entire playlist planned out before the wedding and when I entered a genre for our dinner songs, our DJ, Wesley, just ran with it. Regarding Wesley, he was so sweet and nice and did exactly what we asked and even went above and beyond for one of our songs (Detroit Lions theme song for the garter toss). He got the instrumental and the song with lyrics and told us ahead of time what he would be doing. I would totally recommend Toast Ent. to others as well at Welsey who was absolutely amazing.

I thought the whole process of planning and choosing your music was very simple and a fun project for my fiance and I to do together. Garrick was wonderful at arriving early and getting everything set up. Ceremony music was faded wonderfully and played exactly how we asked.... Read More He was extremely quick at responding to emails and answering questions and was so professional. Looking back we probably would have added more music to the Don't Play list. We just added a few and then filled up our Must Play list and our Play if Time list thinking that that would fill up the night but there was still music played that was totally not our style, but not to worry because we just gave Garrick the nod and he moved on. We figured he was doing his job and seeing what music people reacted to and worked on getting people out on the dance floor. We were just more concerned about what we like to hear and dance to, not so much everyone else. But I would definitely recommend Toast Entertainment and Garrick!

I had high hopes for Toast with all of the amazing reviews they had but I feel like they just fell flat. The good: Our photographer, Amber. She was great! She did our engagement photos and was our main photographer on our wedding day. She was very easy to work with and did a... Read More great job. I would definitely recommend her. Having one company for a lot of my vendors - it made it easy to know who to go to with a lot of my questions but unfortunately, I just had to make sure I was on top of them about everything so nothing fell through - which is stressful during wedding planning. The photo booth props: A lot of photo booth props nowadays are ratty and lame but the ones that came with our photo booth were super fun and went well with the customized props that we added. The meh/bad: Communication all around. I booked well in advance and when it was starting to get close to the day, I would have appreciated an email letting me know what to expect, how everything worked but that wasn't the case. I had to reach out about finding out who my DJ/Videographer was, if I needed a contact for the photo booth because I hadn't heard a peep about that, and most annoying was the package I purchased came with extras (a monogram and large wedding print) and no one reached out about those so if I hadn't taken the initiative, they would have just let it be and I would have paid the extra for nothing. They also didn't send anything after the wedding except a survey email. They didn't update me about when I should expect photos/video/etc. I had to reach out about that, multiple times to get a general ETA. The videographer: He was very nice and very responsive but the quality of the video is just not up to today's standards when I compare it to other wedding videos at other companies. Others are much more HD and creative and better at selecting good angles for the couple. The first cut of the video had generic music as well as background noise that should have been cut out. As I mentioned, he was really nice and after I requested to personalize the music, he allowed it.. it's just weird to me that it wasn't standard practice. The DJ falls under meh. He did everything he was asked and made no mistakes so I don't want to say he was bad. He just didn't have much personality and played all of the requested songs back to back.. which were a lot of 90's songs that would have been great to have mixed into other music. Overall, I give toast a "meh" but it could have just been my experience since they do have so many great ratings. Also, I don't think their Dallas business is as built up as Austin and other areas.

For some reason some of our requests didn’t submit on the online thing, but it didn’t even matter because our DJ, Jamila, blew it out of the park!
