“He’s not just a DJ he’s also a “Day Of” wedding planner!”
Alan was one our best decisions for our wedding celebration! When I was first approached by Alan at a wedding show in Tacoma, he also met my sisters and mom. He gave a few examples of what he could do to make our wedding memorable and personable. He also said he could do the whole event, wedding and reception from beginning to end for one reasonable price. When my husband and I first met Alan together, we knew we would have the right music to go with our celebration and some awesome tools to pick out every song that we wanted without difficulty.
Alan was a life saver! He kept the day going! He’s not just a DJ he’s also a “Day Of” wedding planner! He kept us on cue at the wedding and the timeline of the reception moving along, even though the buffet servers were slow to get the food out.
At the reception the music we wanted was played, both at cocktails and meal time and dancing. Alan was at our event until we left in the limo, he doesn’t add on charges, he got one price for the whole thing, making things easy!
We knew we could definitely trust Alan with our celebration. He was so personable and professional, he takes his job seriously, it’s not just a side job for him. You know he wants to make his clients happy in any way he can. During the planning process he “friended” on facebook, so we were able to see updates on the weddings he did, the shows he attended and the conferences, I never realized there were so many conferences for DJ’s, he goes to a lot of them! So you know he very knowledgable with the latest and greatest techniques and technology.
He somehow knew who my family members were, who to go to if he had questions so he wouldn’t have to bother us, my family loved that. People LOVED the music we chose and he played for us.
We were able to pick music from a large selection on his website and add ones that we wanted that he didn’t have. Alan gave us advice on music for the ceremony and reception, kind of staying within genres at times, but we didn’t have to take it if we didn’t want to.
Alan rocked it! He immediately made us trust him because he is so personable and professional, and trust goes a long way! Before the wedding, my dad came into the room and asked me, “Who is the guy I don’t recognize in the tux?” I said “That’s got to be Alan our DJ!” so you know he dresses nice too! A wedding I went to 3 weeks after mine, the DJ wore ripped jeans with crystals glued to them, an untucked button down shirt, with only 3 buttons buttoned and a gangster hat – clearly not the look I wanted at my wedding.
Alan was Master of Ceremonies at our reception, but he wasn’t the center of our event. He set up his station to the side of the dance floor, not on the stage (I don’t think he likes stages) He wasn’t loud and boisterous like some DJ’s like to be. During and after our wedding, we received many compliments directed towards Alan and what a wonderful job he did at our wedding.
The biggest compliment I will give Alan is that we will recommend him to all our friends that ever need a DJ. My husband talked about having another party just so we can hire him again for some great dancing!
