We hired Chau for our September wedding in Leesburg, and we are so happy we did! Chau was great throughout the whole process. A few months prior to our wedding, Chau sent us an outline to help us organize all of our music, introductions, etc. Once we had all our music, he shared all of the song with us in a Dropbox so we could listen to them and make sure they were right. He also checked in with us a few times closer to the wedding to make sure we were feeling good. The actual wedding was also amazing! Chau arrived early and started setting up. He had all the right equipment, including a lapel mic for our officiant and a handheld mic for our readers during the ceremony. The sound was great! He also had a great set-up for cocktail hour and the reception. When we were running a bit behind schedule, Chau came over and gave us a plan with how to get back on track - and we did! Our crew was dancing the ENTIRE night. We feel really lucky to have found such a great DJ who made the night so fun for us and our guests! Thank you, Chau!!!

When we began searching for a wedding DJ, we knew that we wanted someone who would be comfortable with a mic while not being cheesy. We wanted someone who would be able to balance accomodating our musical preferences (EDM slant) while also catering to the rest of our guests to keep everyone on the dance floor. Basically, we wanted someone who would be fun, cool, and professional. I was dismayed at how difficult it was to find someone who fit the bill.
We had a good feeling about Chau the moment we first spoke with him on the phone. We went ahead and booked with him fairly quickly after we first spoke, and he only continued to exceed our expectations with each continued interaction. He was the most responsive vendor we worked with, and answered pretty much every email within hours. We also had no clue what songs we needed to get together, and were vastly relieved when he provided not only a list of songs he needed (e.g. processional, recessional, cake cutting, etc.) but also recommendations for each. When we provided our song selections, we included some songs that were old/unconventional, and were unsure if he'd be able to find them, but none of our selections phased him. We also gave him a list of some songs that we wanted to hear during dancing, and he seamlessly filled in the rest for us to cater to all the different demographics present. He arrived on time, and provided ceremony/cocktail hour/reception music and audio equipment for us, as well as reception MC services and uplighting. Basically, the success of our entire wedding rested on his shoulders, and we were never let down. He kept the night going as our MC, and kept our guests out on the dance floor. A couple of guests were amazed with the fact that Chau was mixing songs and not just playing a playlist, and commented that it was some of the best wedding music they'd ever experienced. All in all, we owe him for a fantastic wedding, and cannot sing his praises enough!

Short version: Chau was fun and professional – exactly the mix you want in a DJ and wedding vendor! From the moment we talked to him, we knew we could trust him with our special day – and our instincts were right, because our guests had such a great time on the dance floor!
Long version: During our video call with Chau, we learned that he had prior experience in clubs and had transitioned into weddings, which we loved because we wanted someone who could read the crowd to keep our guests dancing. He had also worked at the Carnegie Institution for Science before which put us at ease. We hired him through Marquee Artists – we decided to go for uplighting, mics for the ceremony and toasts, and a photo booth through Marquee as well. All were great, but back to Chau:
I can’t tell you how much we appreciated that throughout the planning process, Chau was super quick to respond to our emails and would check in on us when we didn’t respond to his emails (sorry!!). We would have the tiniest, most random question and Chau would promptly respond. When it came time to send him our specific song selections, the checklist he gave us to fill out really helped us think about the flow of events during the reception.
Once we picked songs, he sent us mp3s to make sure he had the correct version. His attention to detail was especially appreciated regarding our first dance song - when we described how we wanted it to fade out, he responded quickly with his version that had the timing down perfectly. For the reception, we ended up only providing him with about 10 songs along with a few artists we liked, but that was enough for Chau to understand our taste! We also made a few last-minute changes at the reception, which didn’t faze him at all.
Chau, you made what can be a stressful process EASY. Your personality and professionalism made us feel comfortable right from the start, and all of our guests had so much fun! Thank you!!!
Best DJ for weddings and parties!
