Our dance floor was packed the entire night! Peter is helpful, flexible and very friendly and we will certainly recommend him.

We wanted to take a minute to say a few words about DJ Peter. We were fortunate enough to have Peter as our wedding DJ for our wedding this fall. When we met him we were taken back by his level of professionalism and detailed approach to his craft. My wife and I considered music one of the biggest and most important aspects of our wedding, so we knew finding a DJ would be important.

What drew us to Peter was our first sit down meeting where he laid out everything he could offer. His attention to detail and his willingness to provide the exact atmosphere we were hoping for made our decision very easy. He made it clear that his role was to be there for us, and that’s exactly what he did.

In the year leading up to our wedding, Covid-19 happened. And with that our wedding planning was thrown into disarray. Things continued to become more difficult culminating in an executive order that there would be no dancing allowed at gatherings of any kind. We went from excitement to dread around our own version of Footloose playing out in front of our eyes.

With all the stress around the new rules and planning, Peter stepped up. He was so happy to find that we were going to continue with the wedding and he stepped into action. One thing we really appreciated was his dedication to the planning. He made minute by minute plans of how the day would go under the new guidelines to keep everyone on the same page.

We also made a plan to dance privately for our Father-Daughter/Mother-Son and First Dances in a gazebo near the venue. Peter provided us copies of edits for all the songs we wanted to do in perfect quality so we could work around the regulations.

At the ceremony he hit all the notes perfectly for the songs we wanted which added to the emotional punch of an already relieving day. His expert advise helped us make a couple of decisions around the music that played out perfectly. He nailed all the intros to the reception, and most importantly, he nailed our atmosphere.

While we couldn’t dance on the evening, he took everything we were looking for and wove together an atmosphere that was picture perfect. We got to hear all of our favorite songs as we mingled with our guests. And just as everyone says, it went SO FAST. I’d love to have bottled that atmosphere with all of my favorite (albeit less than planned) people. Peter was a big part of that for us. We will always appreciate his professionalism and dedication to our big day. We would highly recommend him over and over again.

Peter's Response

Joe, thank you very much for the awesome review! I really appreciate the time you took to write this review, and I'm extremely happy to hear you and Lauren were so pleased with my services at your wedding. Considering the COVID restrictions, it was definitely a unique and memorable experience… I'll admit I was a bit nervous about how things would go -- so it was a huge relief to see everything come together so smoothly so you and your guests could still celebrate and keep things safe for everyone. Big, big thanks to you and Lauren for choosing me as your DJ! All the best for the new year and many more beyond.

Editorial Note

Usually, I link these reviews back to the blog post for the wedding. For Joe and Lauren's wedding, I haven't written a blog post yet. I've been spending my spare time over the past few months finally getting the new design for this website finished up, so I will hopefully get caught up with blogging soon!
