Wow. Where do I even begin? Julie was perfect. I can't stress PERFECT enough! From our very first conversation while we were searching for the right DJ, she was super nice, spoke with us both professionally and like a friend. We knew pretty much right away she was the right choice- and BOY were we happy we picked her! Communication in the months leading to the wedding day was a breeze- she was super responsive and so enthusiastic- like she was looking forward to it as much as we were! Any ideas as far as specific songs or reception timing, she was right on board, or offered an even better idea I hadn't thought of! Julie really went above and beyond a DJ's duties in my book- she helped me lay out the timeline of the whole reception weeks in advance, and guided our guests along seamlessly so no one was standing around wondering what to do or where to go. And let's not forget the PARTY! She built a fabulous dance party, got almost every guest on the dance floor, even the shy, and our 90 year old grandfather! She was able to read the crowd so well, took requests (running all of them by me and my groom first!) and looked like she was having a great time herself! When it was time for last call, all the guests were sad the dance party was coming to an end! After the wedding day, I was sad the super special event I'd been planning for months had passed- in huge part because communication with my vendors had become so familiar and fun! I really look at Julie like a friend. She was so happy for us, helped give us the best day of our lives, and I can't imagine our wedding day without her. YOU ROCK, JULIE! Look no further brides to be, you've found your DJ.Sent on 10/24/2017

I found your next DJ...FYI she rocks!
Julie was incredible from start to finish as the DJ of our special day. We honestly couldn't have picked a better DJ as she brought out our personalities and packed the dance floor all night long with a perfect mix of music. We can't recommend her enough!Sent on 07/23/2019

Julie rocked my wedding!
There are regular DJ's and there are music scientists that get so dialed in to a crowd that they move the party along with the perfect progression of songs and beats so that everyone is out on the dance floor the whole night. Julie is the reason that I know that latter exists. The amount of effort Julie puts in to understanding the exact style and feel you want your wedding to have is astounding, I think at this point she knows our musical tastes better than we do! We had Julie play every element of our wedding, from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and through the night. That included helping us find the perfect songs and edits to fit our ceremony. Not only is she great at playing tunes, she's also a very gifted MC. She was great at making sure all of our dances and toasts went right on schedule and our guests had a great time. I can't recommend using Julie to rock your party enough!Sent on 08/11/2019
DJ Julie is a a friend,mentor, and excellent DJ. She is the kind of DJ who after guiding you through the process of planning the music and completely exceeding your highest expectations with her performance, you will remember her fondly as a friend that helped make your wedding that much more spectacular. There is something to be said about hiring a independent DJ rather than going through a entertainment company. It makes the entire process that much more personable which is something you will grow to appreciate and sincerely thank yourself for in the end.
Julie is great to work with.
