    Fantastic experience

    DJ Ryan is a fantastic DJ, and a genuinely great person to have at your reception. He was incredibly flexible, which I am extremely grateful for, and made our wedding during the time of COVID feel joyful and light. I can't recommend him highly enough.

    DJ Ryan The DJ's reply:

    Thank you so much Sueanna!! It is such a delight to hear that we were able to create some joy and lightness together this year. : ) Best of luck and thank you!!

    Exceeded All Expectations

    Ryan assumed our DJ/MC services in the waning hours of planning our wedding - our initial DJ dropped out just 3 weeks prior to the big day. I contacted Ryan, who took over with such high levels of professionalism, engagement, and detail-orientedness that put all of my worries (generated from our initial DJ's dropout) to rest.

    Ryan conducted our planning, wedding ceremony, and reception beautifully. My wife and I provided him with a simple and very general list of music styles that we were expecting to be played at our reception - Ryan used his expertise and experience, read the crowd, and played such a fun and engaging medley of music. We could not have asked for a better experience than the one he provided. This is also not to mention that Ryan conducts himself with autonomy and class - he communicated with us and our wedding coordinator early enough (despite the short time frame) that we were able to spend the day on us and not have to worry about details pertaining to organization and setup.

    We wholeheartedly would recommend Ryan for any event, especially any wedding.

    If we could rank Ryan higher than the maximum allowed in these reviews, we would!

    Hey Nick, thank you so much for your kind and detailed review! So happy you had an awesome experience. : )

    Dream Wedding DJ

    My husband and I recently got married in February 2021, and were so thoroughly impressed with the experience we had with Ryan! We originally learned about Ryan through friends who had invited him to DJ their wedding. We were guests at this event, and remember the reception being a total blast thanks to the outstanding music selection and energy that DJ Ryan exhibited. From our initial consultation with Ryan, we knew he would be an irreplaceable fit for our vendor team. It was evident that he truly enjoyed his work and the unique impact he could make on how each wedding would be remembered. He takes a very individualized approach to designing the perfect plan for each wedding, and is very gifted and comfortable in curating a music selection based on your wedding theme or general tastes as a couple. Since we did not have specific lists for song selections (except for parts of the ceremony), we discussed our ideal wedding vibe and gave Ryan the creative freedom to make our vision come to life. Due to COVID, we decided to have a dancing-free reception with our very intimate group of guests, and instead hosted a barcade reception where family groups could play vintage nintendo games on projectors, cornhole, classic tabletops games, etc. DJ Ryan created the PERFECT mix for our cocktail hour, dinner service, and reception. He incorporated some of our favorite music genres with lo-fi renditions of songs from our most loved games, and our friends were all blown away when they recognized some of their favorite themes in the playlist. Our wedding had such a magical feel thanks to Ryan, all while promoting a safe and distanced atmosphere to best follow COVID protocols. We would recommend his expertise with total confidence to any bride and groom!

    DJ Ryan The DJ's reply:

    Emily, thank you so much for your review!! I had such a good time making that playlist for you and I am so pleased that you and your guests enjoyed the atmosphere. : )

Ryan is a fun DJ, and a great team member! He always arrives on time (usually early), and after his set up he wants to know how he can help with anything else. Ryan puts a lot of thought into customizing the playlist for the couple, and they really appreciate the work he puts in pre-wedding day.

DJ Ryan is an INCREDIBLE DJ and Host that I've had the honor of working with over the course of my career! He's not your typical DJ/Host, he's at your event hours early, helping all of the staff and other vendors be sure your event is everything you want it to be! Highly recommend him as a DJ and guy that you'll just want to have around while planning your wedding!
