Testimonials

Jeremy,

Thank you for all you did to make our wedding reception such a success. I appreciated you taking control for things you had to and for melting into the background and playing music ~assume music~ the remainder of the time!
I loved the dinner music - that's a play list I would Love to have - and the dancing was excellent - It was so much fun seeing friends & family having so much fun. There were some dancing fools that night - including the bride!
Your professionalism, accessibility & organization are unmatched.. .

With many thanks,

Leslie & Ben

"Hi Jeremy, I just wanted to thank you so much for your fantastic services at our wedding on January 24th. Everything you did was perfect. The songs you played were wonderful - I have so many wonderful memories of dancing with my new husband and our guests! Everyone had a great time, so thank you so much for creating such a fun atmosphere.

And thank you also for keeping all the events running smoothly. I felt like you were my wedding planner as well as my DJ! I really appreciated how you managed all the details so my family and I could just enjoy the wedding.

I will wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone I know who is getting married. We were so happy with everything you did for us, before and during the wedding, and we would love to get to go to another wedding you do! You exceeded any expectations we had from the very beginning - we were lucky to have found you!

I wish you all the best and hope our paths will cross again in the future!

Sincerely,
Jessica and Michael

URGENT NEWS

I received this email from my good friend Dawn today.

"Not sure if this is going to apply to any of you, but if you haven’t heard, Mountain View Inn is closing this weekend. Any weddings you may have booked this year at that location will have to be moved. I am just writing this to give you a heads up that you will probably be hearing from these brides soon, if you haven’t already. Some brides have already received deposits back, but some are just finding out now and they are closing this weekend! Can you imagine!?

Hope you are all well and had a great holiday season!

I checked my weddings and don't think any of my couples are getting married there but I wanted to let everyone else know.

After a 45 minute open dance floor we went into the Bouquet toss (no pictures) and the Cake cutting ceremony.
We decided to wait to cut the cake because of the cake was so neat and unique. . . The wedding cake was a 3' toll snow man!

"Jeremy and Heather,

Thank you so much for everything. The tunes were unreal. Everything about the night was great.
I appreciate all of your efforts, there are too many to mention.
I loved how everything you had a hand in went perfect. Thanks for bailing out my Best Men with their audio problems with the video.

We hope the two of you enjoyed the night as much as we did.
You know how it is on your wedding day, there are so many things going through your mind, but never once did Darah or I ever get nervous about your service. If you ever need someone to speak with a prospective client, please have them call Darah and I.
You got 5 stars and 4 thumbs up from us.
A bunch of people came up to us at the reception and complimented you. It was awesome.

I loved how well you worked with Ryan (photographer) and the Inn.
Who would have thought a water main break wouldn't even come close to denting our great time! I was particularly fond of the free strobe lights we had all night though.
Darah and I believe you and Heather will be great friends for life.

Thanks Again,

Denis & Darah"

Hayley and Adam's reception was at the Omni William Penn Hotel.

I can sum up the look of the room in two words, "Simply Breathtaking". The entire room was white on white. . . Hayley and Adam were going for a beautiful "snow" feel and boy did they get it spot on.



The blue accent lights on the upper floor was a great touch to the room.


I absolutley addor the center pieces. . .
