I couldn't be happier with Walter and Toast Entertainment! I used them for my photographer, DJ, and photobooth. The price was very reasonable, and communication with Walter was amazing. I got a response from him within 2 hours every time I reached out to him. The photographer... Read More was Heather Wise, and she is a BOSS! She was so great to work with, and really made sure that my now husband and I were the real focus. Our DJ, Vance, was SO fun. My guests absolutely loved the music, and were dancing all night. The Photo Booth was awesome, and my husband and I are still laughing at the pictures from it. I highly recommend Toast!

I would DEFINITELY recommend them for your wedding or any event for that matter! Hunter was the DJ at our wedding and he was just awesome! He was nice and fun and very attentive, paid attention to detail and was always right there when we needed him. The whole process was easy...

Wesley exceeded our expectations! My husband and I had a destination wedding in New Orleans. Since it was a destination wedding and we don't have any friends or family in the area, we had to do a ton of research on each vendor. Wesley met with me before we booked and showed me... Read More the software that he uses, the website where we could set up all of our requests, and really put all of my concerns to rest. He was prompt with his responses, kind, professional, and accommodating throughout the entire process, even offering suggestions for other attractions and restaurants since we weren't local. We purchased the package to have Toast take care of the music for the ceremony and reception, which was a great decision. Wesley was set up early and had the music queued up before our guests started to arrive for the ceremony. He mixed the music perfectly so there were smooth transitions between the songs and no awkward breaks or pauses. (Which was even more impressive considering we were going from classic rock to contemporary pop during our ceremony.) We had also requested to have certain songs start and stop at specific points, which he was totally prepared for. Wesley kept everything going seamlessly in to dinner and throughout the reception as well. He found a way to fit in all of our requests throughout the night and was respectful of our "Do Not Play" list, as we all have that one friend who likes to make terrible requests. I can't say enough about how pleased I was with the service that was provided. One of the most important factors in wedding planning is working with exceptional vendors and Toast Entertainment is exactly that. Thank you again to Wesley and the Toast Entertainment Team!

Very professional! I was able to get a hold of John quickly and he was very accommodating. They really understand the wedding business and the stress that's involved with it and John did all he could do make that flow easily. I gave him very little direction and he still made it... Read More amazing! I was also very impressed that he was able to pick up on my non verbals about ending the songs early (considering we had never met).

Garrick was our DJ from Toast, and he was amazing. First, we scheduled a meeting for prior to the wedding, and during it he was personable and very knowledgeable! And he understood exactly what we wanted (simple fun with clean songs)!!! Before the wedding, he arrived very early... Read More to set up and make sure everything was in order for the evening.

Garrick truly helped made our wedding the best day ever! Our photographer was Amber, and her pictures have been better than I could have ever imagined! She perfectly captured the beauty and love and joy of our day! She was great at making sincere photos (not overly posed and awkward looking), and she was able to quickly pose everyone so that our pictures didn't take hours!

If you're looking for a place where customer experience is the top priority, you've found it. We used Toast for our wedding on 4/22 and utilized their photography, videography, bartender, and DJ service. Crazy convenient to have a one stop shop. All the vendors went above and... Read More beyond our expectations, especially with their bend over backwards attitudes. It's probably no coincidence that owner Walter is exactly the same way. He gave lightening fast responses and executed on any changes we asked for with a smile. We can't say enough about how easy Toast made our day with the professional and experienced vendors. Huge shout out to Jon Dart Photography, DJ Chase Harrison, and George Tallmadge on the video, absolutely exceptional service and even better finished products. Thanks again Walter and team!

Hunter was amazing! Our wedding was a mix of Texan-Colombian and Hunter made a very smooth blend off country and latin music. He was on top of every detail and last minute decision. It was more than we were expecting and made our day very enjoyable.

Not only were all the services at Toast very reasonably priced, but now that I have seen the quality of the people they send you, I am even MORE impressed. George was great as the videographer, always around capturing the best moments. Can't wait to see the final product!... Read More John Rust was the best DJ ever! Especially considering what a procrastinator I was (waiting until the night before my wedding to send over ANY sort of idea of what I wanted), they were both so patient and understanding of how frazzled I was. My guests raved about how cool our DJ was. He was dancing and singing along and helping keep the energy up big time. Can't say enough good things about them both! My only complaint was with Toast Entertainment, I decided a few months before my wedding that I didn't have the budget to keep the photo booth option I had originally reserved. The invoice they send you upon booking their services is pretty vague and just says "deposit" and doesn't break down the deposit. So I put down a $450 deposit for all 3 services. When I contacted them to cancel the photo booth, I expect to lose the deposit portion that was for the photo booth, but apparently EVERY service is a $150 deposit, no matter the cost of the service and I lost $150 for a $500-600 service (20-30% deposit). So even though the DJ service and video service were double or triple the price of the photo booth, they still told me the deposit I put down is an equal split for all 3. I don't agree with this philosophy and business practice, especially when it's not clearly defined ahead of time, if I had known that $150 of my deposit was specially for an only $600 service, I would have held off until I was sure, but I definitely assumed the deposit was pro-rated for each service based on the cost of the service.

Stephan from toast entertainment was my wedding planner and she was amazing. We used her as a day of events coordinator only, and she made everything go perfectly even though she was not involved in the entire planning process. You'd realize how amazing that is if you knew me...... Read More I'm more of a "make it up as I go and see what happens" kind of planner. Stephanie rolled with the punches and executed everything I wanted to a tee. I literally sent her an email at 6am the day of the wedding with all the last minute things I'd thought of, and she didn't even flinch. She just made all those last minute details happen and I never had to think about them again. She had a timeline prepared, and during the wedding she did an amazing job reading the crowd and moving certain events forward or back. It was super easy for me to stay calm and just enjoy the day because I knew if I needed literally anything she'd make it happen. Definitely would recommend Stephanie!

Each of them required very little instructions, and only had a few questions upon arrival, and afterwards immediately went into action. They all were extremely nice and pleasant, and had great working knowledge of weddings in general.

The photographer was able to capture all the right things, and I can't wait to see the final pictures. The photographers had such a charismatic and fun personality; they were a joy to interact with. The photo-booth operator was great as well, helping guest to loosen up and capture some candid shots. Toast Ent. made everything so much easier, and I loved that it was a one stop shop that literally handled all the details. You guys saved me so much time and effort just by packaging up all of these services into one very reasonably priced package. From the bottom of our hearts thank you.

Toast was a great company to go through to get a DJ for our wedding.

Walter (the owner) and Garrick (the DJ) were wonderful, so easy to work with, and extremely responsive with all of our questions. I've received many comments from wedding attendees regarding how upbeat Garrick was, how the mix of songs was perfect, and how they loved how he... Read More jumped out on the dance floor to show people how to do the Cupid Shuffle (which included my mom!). The dance floor was a hit ALL night from start to finish - at any given time, there were at a minimum about 25 people out on the dance floor (out of 120!). People were even trying to get out on the dance floor before the dancing officially started! There were many comments that Garrick was a perfect combination of talking over the microphone to get people riled up and playing the perfect mix of music to keep people going. We could not have been happier with how the music and dancing portion turned out as it's often hard to predict how the dance floor will be at weddings. My husband and I didn't even really get a chance to talk to him before the ceremony/wedding started because we were busy taking photos, but Garrick knew just what to do. We appreciated all his support in guiding people to the next step in the process and keeping us on track with scheduling. We never even had to think about timing during the wedding as Garrick made sure to handle it all. The online portal was extremely easy to use and reminded us of certain decisions we still needed to make regarding the timeline. We really can't say enough good things.
