Sean of DJNYC completely understood the vibe we were trying to achieve for our winery wedding. We had an absolute blast dancing (we didn't think we'd be dancing at all!) and our guests were thrilled. There were many times during the different parts of the night that I found myself thinking "this song is perfect and exactly what we wanted". We feel very lucky to have found DJNYC for our special event.
Identifying music for our wedding was one of the most stressful parts of the event planning. We had a vision of 'the perfect dinner party' and the food and venue that we wanted were clear to us; however, we have a variety of musical interests and a limited music vocabulary. Sean took our mediocre explanations, analogies and limited song list and created a perfect sound for each of the three parts of our evening. For the outdoor cocktails, we wanted an outdoor-California-funk-chill-summer-festival vibe, for dinner a world-music-twinged-chill-sometimes-acoustic ambiance and for dancing, we wanted a modern-soul-train-slash-90s-euro-pop-also-make-sure-the-parents-dance marathon. They nailed it all.
Sean and Dan of DJNYC offered us services and an experience that we couldn't find elsewhere. We absolutely did not want an MC shouting over our guests, we wanted someone who accepted that we weren't going to incorporate many "traditional" wedding activities, we needed someone who was sensitive to our particular venue and we wanted someone who was OK with creating a perfect vibe without being the center of attention.
Dan and Sean helped us to plan for the event over the phone cross-country. I felt extremely comfortable that they understood the physical nuances of our venue - an outdoor pavilion, outdoor cocktails, a winery setting. During the wedding, Sean was always attentive, making sure we had the microphone for our own announcements and making sure the volume was appropriate for the stage of the evening. My wife and I were so very pleased with Sean and Dan of DJNYC!
