DJ Forrestt was very professional and a pleasure to work with. While planning a wedding it is often times hard to get vendors to respond in a timely manner with questions you have about services offered. Dj Forrest with Xceptional DJ's responded very quickly every single time.... Read More For the reception he was on time, even ahead of schedule (which is what I prefer) and everything went perfect. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needed DJ services. The price is very competitive and the service is unmatched.

The Best Part of our Wedding

Reviewed on 1/08/2014

DJ Forrest was clearly the best part of our wedding day. The entire day began as a train wreck as everything imaginable went wrong! However, once the reception started, he calmed us down and took over and everything went from stressful to amazing. My family and friends are not... Read More traditionally a "dancing crowd" but I can say that we had a packed dance floor for the entire night and the music was absolutely perfect. Our planner also no-showed on us and Forrest came to the rescue by completely taking charge by doing this like lining up guests, making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be, and he even arranged for the caterer to make our plates due to us being way behind because of the weather. This company truly turned our potential wedding nightmare into one of the best weddings ever.. and even our guests were telling us this was the funnest wedding they have ever been to!!
