    Alex is the best!

    Alex was absolutely amazing! We had to change our venue twice because of Covid and Alex worked with us through the whole process! In the end, we had a backyard wedding that was livestreamed and everyone there physically and virtually commented on how much they loved Alex! The acoustic music during our ceremony helped give it a super personal touch! Then, later in the evening when it started raining, Alex let us move him under a 10 X 20 tent and we kept the after party going for another 2 hours in the rain! We could not have asked for a better DJ! Alex truly cared about us and making our day the best day it could be! We 1000% plan on using Alex for any and all music needs in the future and he will be someone that we recommend to anyone who is looking for a DJ! Thanks so much Alex!!!

    Alexander Ruwe Music's reply:

    What a lovely and hilaaaaaaaaaaaarious evening we shared together, team! Watching all of you dive into buckets of ice cold water while we danced and partied in the rain together is something I'll never forget. Thank you so much for your kind words. Can't wait to see you both again soon!

    From Muscial Heartbreak to a Happily Ever After

    When our musician canceled on us with only a month to go before our big day — and after being booked for over a year — our hearts sank. Heading into what was being reported as the busiest wedding season in history, how would we ever find someone else not just to play our wedding, but to bring to life everything that music lends to the ambiance and feel of the day?

    Enter Alexander Ruwe.

    Passed along as a recommendation from another musician, we listened to every clip online we could find of him performing, and as a result, also discovered a young woman in a few of his videos whose effortlessly soulful voice gave us instant goosebumps.

    The way their voices blended together, we could already hear them as we walked down the aisle. There was no question about it — they absolutely had to play it.

    After reaching out to Alex directly, he promptly responded, and despite having a full schedule of gigs already, he hated to see a couple in a bind. Immediately, he agreed to play the wedding.
    We then asked about the young woman, who we learned was Joanna Serenko. Alex told us he'd reach out and check, and in the meantime, we again scoured the Googles for any videos we could find of her. Color us surprised when all the results were clips from her recent run on The Voice. Surely someone with John Legend on speed dial had better things to do than play our event on a Friday. But we were surprised once again when she'd agreed to join Alex for the evening without so much as a single question or hesitation.

    And just like that, what originally seemed as though it would be the hugest damper on our big day quickly became a blessing in disguise.

    Alex and Joanna absolutely killed it, performing a fun yet heartfelt acoustic set as our guests arrived, as well as a couple special requests for our ceremony, and then another amazing set during our cocktail hour. Our guests have all continued to rave about their performance, but even outside of that, both Alex and Joanna were so genuinely happy for us and to be a part of our day that it really made it seem like we'd known them forever. They had even asked us to let them know if there was anything they could do to help that day aside from just playing.

    We couldn't have asked for a better duo to play, and look forward to seeing them both at more gigs in the future.
