    Perfect from start to finish!!

    We hired Jeff at First City Events to be the DJ for our daughter's wedding. He did a fantastic job of keeping the party moving and grooving from the beginning of the reception until the send-off at the end. His music selection, based on a short list we provided was impeccable and once the dancing started, it never stopped. Before people get upset about dancing, please know that every precaution was taken and no covid infections occurred at the wedding! Jeff kept the wedding reception items moving exactly on schedule and I never felt any worry that things were not happening. The only problem was that no-one wanted the evening to end, it was such a blast.

    From the first time I spoke with Jeff I felt comfortable with him and he completely delivered. I would highly recommend him. Judging from the quality work he delivered as a DJ, I can only imagine the rest of their services are top-notch. I planed our wedding and didn't use a wedding planner, but I am sure that Bonnie and Jeff are wonderful event planners as well.

    Do yourself a favor, save yourself some time, a book directly with Jeff at First City Events - you will not regret it!

    First City Event - Your Dream Team

    Bonnie and her team are the best! They really were fantastic and we couldn’t be happier. They helped our magical weekend wedding dreams come true.

    Bonnie was always very patient, and responsive, and made excellent recommendations for vendors. In addition, she is down-to-earth and personable. She is a gifted wedding planner and deeply loves and enjoys what she does. We absolutely recommend her without hesitation.

    Her husband, Jeff, the DJ is also great. We were able to pick all the songs for the reception. He did all our announcing too. He had everyone on the dance floor dancing and singing along. It was so much fun.

    I strongly recommend hiring both Bonnie, as your wedding planner and Jeff, as your DJ.
