    Kept the party going!

    Our number one goal for our wedding was a crowded dance floor, and Derek made that happen! He did a great job incorporating our preferences into his playlist, and was an awesome MC.

    A True Professional

    With many factors otherwise out of our control, Derek was the one person we could rely on throughout the wedding process. He was the one true professional we worked with, someone who was responsiveness, insightful, flexible, friendly, and clearly experienced. Not only did he help us choreograph a beautiful first dance (with a lift!) with just two lessons, but he helped execute our special night to perfection. By far and away, he was our favorite person to work with in the Charlottesville area, and aside from all the logistics that he assisted in, he helped make our dance floor ~electric~. Seriously could not recommend any vendor higher than Derek; he is a class of his own in Charlottesville.

    Best DJ Ever

    When Steven and I talked about which vendors to prioritize for our wedding, having a great DJ was our number one priority. We love to dance, and we couldn't wait to bring all our loved ones together on the dance floor. After researching and interviewing many DJ's in the Charlottesville area, Steven and I decided on DJ Tobler, and we could not be happier with our decision!! From the onset, Derek was always extremely timely, kind, and professional in his communications with us. We were able to witness his DJ skills before our wedding at 2 different events, and we were incredibly proud to say he was our chosen wedding DJ. At both events, he brought people of all ages to the floor and took great pride in his job. A few months later, we met again for a dance lesson to help us choreograph our first dance. He was so fun to work with, and we had a dance we absolutely loved by the end of the lesson! He even edited our song to match our moves and incorporated a lift. We met with him again for a combined father-daughter dance, mother-father dance, and final first dance practice lesson, and it went so well! He made us all feel comfortable and have so much fun. We were all confident in our dances by the end of the lesson. The evening before the wedding, I was very stressed to see rain forecasted during our ceremony. I emailed Derek asking if there was any way that he could be a last minute backup music plan for the ceremony in case the string quartet couldn鈥檛 play with the rain, and he quickly replied that he would be more than happy to. During the wedding, he clearly took our music tastes and requests into consideration and curated a playlist and energy of our dreams. The mics and sound system functioned flawlessly, and all his announcements were wonderful! The dance floor was full of our loved ones of all ages. To top it all off, he even planned a private dance for Steven and me at the end of the night before our sparkler exit to one of our favorite songs. I give Derek my highest recommendation!

Entertainment should always be top of your priority list when planning a wedding. The music helps the overall atmosphere, which makes weddings wow! Derek definitely delivers. He's got you covered music wise, playing your hand-selected favorites, but also can help you coordinate your dances being an instructor himself. He's truly got it all and a great attitude to make the process easy along the way. DJ Tobler is a wedding day must have!
