I remember first reading all of the amazing reviews about Paris online (before booking him) and thinking, “This guy sounds too good to be true.” As it turns out, I was wrong. He is literally incredible, and words cannot begin to express how WONDERFUL of a job he did in DJing our... Read More wedding. From the very first moment we spoke with Paris on the phone, we knew we wanted to have him DJ our wedding. Unlike other DJs, he is articulate and well spoken. And, he is a REAL PERSON. He is definitely someone you would want behind a microphone, speaking to a crowd. Moving forward throughout the wedding planning process, Paris proved to be incredibly organized, friendly and kind, and so freaking good at his job. He was a pleasure to interact with (and possibly the only thing that didn’t drive us completely bonkers during the wedding planning process). Paris is self-motivated to do a great job. He thought of everything and pushed us to be more organized, detail-orientated, and prepared for the big day. Yep, that’s right. Not only did he do HIS job, he helped us do ours. Incredible. Moreover, Paris NEVER said “No, that’s not possible” or “Are you kidding me??” to our many wacky ideas. I, the bride, wanted to do a weird dance with my Dad wherein we slow danced at the start of our dance but then did the Bristol Stomp for the second half of the dance. Paris responded within a day via email with a perfect mix for what I had imagined. As a result, my father and I had time to practice for our dance and it was a HUGE hit with our guests (and also a super special moment for me). Likewise, my bridesmaids practiced and wanted to do the Thriller dance to open up the dance floor after eating dinner. Again, Paris arranged a perfect cut of the song and discussed at length how exactly things would go. All 7 bridesmaids and myself were prepared and absolutely killed Thriller as a result. Furthermore, we asked that every wedding party member walk out to a different song during introductions - Paris happily acquiesced. He made everything that we wanted possible. Additionally, Paris helped set up microphones and sound for both our ceremony, cocktail hour, and he DJed our reception. He even went above and beyond and took video of me, the bride, walking down the aisle. My husband and I decided not to have a videographer, so his footage was the only video footage I received of that moment. And it was captured by Paris, our DJ...someone who wasn’t even supposed to be filming anything. Wow. Paris is thorough and he truly cares about creating the best possible experience for his clients. He is willing to go more than the extra mile to ensure that the day runs smoothly and that the couple is happy. Moreover, he does a great job of getting the crowd going - our dance floor was PACKED the entire night and our guests have complimented us endlessly on how our wedding was such a great dance party. We cannot say enough good things about Paris and wish there were something more we could do to emphasize his wonderfulness.

My wife and I booked Paris for our wedding recently and we were incredibly impressed by his professionalism and attention to detail. Nothing sticks out more to me than the fact that he called each of our parents, my best man and my wife's maid of honor individually the week... Read More before the wedding to say hello and go over some details about the reception (speeches, etc). This personal touch made everyone feel so special and so involved. It is so emblematic of how Paris conducts himself. Paris is also incredibly organized, something my wife and I really appreciate. When we booked him, he sent us a detailed folder with a questionnaire for each of us, a list of songs (with suggestions for entrance music, etc) and more. He was available whenever we were ready to return forms and talk over the phone about what we wanted. He even double-checked the details the week before the wedding to make sure he had everything perfect. The wedding reception itself was seamless and perfect. Paris had everything organized and scheduled, but he would also walk over to our table to check with us to make sure we were ready for things like speeches, cake cutting, etc. As for the music, the atmosphere was amazing and everyone had a blast. Paris played exactly what we wanted for the cocktail hour (90's music), the perfect soft music we requested before dancing (soft classic rock and Sinatra-era jazz) and he got everyone on the floor partying and dancing when the time was right. My 80+ year old father, whom I have never seen dance in my entire life, was on the floor for an hour! It was so much fun! Do yourself a favor and book Paris for your wedding!

I cannot even begin to explain how great our experience with Paris was! From the initial phone call to interview him for our wedding we knew he would be perfect for the job! Once booked we received detailed packets with information and tips that we didn't even think of, once it... Read More was time to sit down and talk before the wedding he made us completely confident that he was going to help make our day run as smooth and stress free as possible! Paris helped our ceremony and our reception run glitch free and collaborated with everyone else running the event to be sure they were all on the same page! The photo booth was a tremendous hit and the book he provided us with is absolutely perfect! The motion monogram created for our day brought tears to not only us but everyone who attended because it was so perfectly us! The uplighting set the mood with our theme of a md tea party changing colors though the night, and dancing on the clouds couldn't have been more amazing to start out our first dance as husband and wife! We have been hearing rave reviews from all of our family and friends since our day about how great everything he did for us was and the entertainment kept everyone from age 2 to 90 entertained and enjoying their time celebrating! We could not tell you enough that this is the One you want for your big day! We wouldn't change a thing we experienced with Paris as our DJ and all of the services he offered that we took advantage of!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Paris!!!

My husband and I first met Paris when he was the DJ at my cousin’s wedding a few years ago. We noticed immediately how full of energy and professional he was. Fast forward two years later and another cousin of mine had him DJ their reception! The first thing my husband and I did... Read More after we got engaged was to call Paris and ask him what available dates he had. We literally planned the wedding date around him-that’s how amazing he is! He was on time, full of energy, and incredibly professional. He really takes the time to get to know you and your family. He composed a love story to share at our reception about how my husband and I met, which is something you never hear of. It was beautiful! You don’t need to look anywhere else for a DJ. Go to Paris- he is THE BEST.

If you are looking for absolutely AWESOME entertainment with high energy then look no further than Weddings by Paris. When we first started looking for a DJ, we were really overwhelmed with all the choices out there (a lot of which don't do this as their living). After asking...

He worked with us every step of the way. He provided us with beautiful music for our ceremony and a phenomenal playlist for our reception. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Paris listens to what you are looking for and makes suggestion based on his expertise. He kept our dance floor packed all night. And the uplighting??? OMG, it was breathtaking.

While taking our engagement photos I asked our photographer (Zak Zavada) for some recommendations for our wedding DJ. He gave us a few names but mentioned that Paris was the best . I gave Paris a call and we ended up speaking for over an hour. He brought up a lot of points... Read More that I had not previously thought about. After that call I knew we had to book Paris for our wedding. He has years of experience and knew what we needed before we did. In the coming months he sent us several forms and emails and had us fully prepped for the wedding. We not only hired Paris for our Cocktail and Reception but we also booked his photo booth and the uplighting for the reception. The photo booth was a huge hit and the people on his team running the booth were great. Paris also made custom edits for the Mother/Son dance as well as the Father/Daughter dance. I cant stress enough how prepared Paris was and how seamlessly he had our day run. He was an absolute pleasure to be around and had everyone dancing all night. If you want to fully enjoy your day and not worry about the run of the day then book Paris. He wasn't just a dj he was a full party/wedding planner.

He is also there to listen to any special things you want to plan on the day. You can tell from the first time you meet with him that he has an intense amount of concern and passion for making sure you have exactly the night that you want. At the event, he absolutely kills it. The intros he wrote for the bridal party using the information we gave him had everyone dying with laughter. He knows how to make the event exciting and fun. Also, you absolutely need to get the photo booth. It’s a tremendous amount of fun for everyone there, and will provide you with a ton of photos to enjoy. We still are finding new pictures/things in our book every time we look at it. We were on the fence about it, but I am so happy we did it, because it gave us even more memories from the night we will always be able to look back on.

Paris was the best DJ we could have hired for our wedding! He was very professional and kept everyone moving on the dance floor.
