Platinum Party Events is owned and operated by Thomas and Laurie Kuerlemann, a husband and wife team who really love what they do and it shows! Thomas loves music. He has been a musician all his life, and played the piano and bass with one of the top 8-piece wedding bands on Long Island when he started his career in 1990. He learned the in's and out's of the wedding industry and honed his skills in reading a crowd and becoming a professional entertainer in the Hudson Valley, NY. Additionally, he learned lighting and sound production from some of the best in the business. Thomas started his own DJ company because he wanted to give brides more options than just hiring a band for their wedding. This allowed him to really personalize couple's receptions and to get out in the crowd and engage the guests, getting them actively involved in the fun and excitement.
Laurie was a prominent member and vocalist of the same 8-piece band as Thomas. That's how Thomas and Laurie met, and eventually fell in love and got married. Laurie's years in the wedding industry had her in the spotlight, emceeing and guiding the flow, creating flawless and seamless events that guests won't soon forget. Laurie's warm and upbeat personality along with her knowledge and experience in wedding planning makes her the perfect emcee and wedding entertainment director for your event! Laurie's genuine love for music and fun really shines through at every event and energetically engaging guests to join in the celebration.
We specialize in uniquely personalized wedding receptions because every couple is different. We offer (3) packages, "MEMORABLE NIGHTS", "REGAL AFFAIR" and "ROYAL RECEPTION". If you decide you would like to add some dance lighting to your event, you can either choose our "SWEETHEART" or "HONEYMOON" dance lighting "upgrades". Our "Sweetheart" dance lighting, which is included in our "REGAL AFFAIR" package, offers a nice touch to those looking for some dance lighting but don't want too much. Our "Honeymoon" dance lighting upgrade, which is included in our "ROYAL RECEPTION" package, offers a brilliant light show that really creates a lot of movement where you want it, on the dance floor! Additionally, we offer a large variety of personalized "add-on" options for you to choose from. You can keep your affair simple or make it as elegant and sophisticated as you want. . . it's really that easy and the choice is always yours! We find that more and more couples are enjoying the experience of being able to tailor their musical needs for their once-in-a-lifetime event rather than being limited to "prepackaged" deals that may or may not have what the couple is looking for. We will be here to hold your hand through the entire planning process and help you have the BEST wedding reception EVER!

Your reception isn't just a party that follows your wedding service and catered dinner. It's a gala honoring the commitment you have made to each other and a chance for you and your guests to spend some time celebrating together. We offer a variety of options to intertwine the ceremony and the celebration, making it a seamless experience for you as a couple and all of your family and friends in attendance.
We believe so strongly that your reception is an extension of your ceremony that we've recently authored two books to help brides (and grooms) plan a successful wedding day. They are: "37 Easy, Cheap (EVEN FREE!) Ways To Make Your Wedding Uniquely You!" and "The 10 Wedding Insider Secrets." SIGN UP TO GET YOUR FREE BOOKS and start planning. We offer these FREE, with absolutely no obligation!
Our commitment to excellence
We always strive to improve our services. We participate in continuing education on all topics related to the wedding industry through the American DJ Online University. Some of the training and classes we've attended include:
We've served over 1,000 couples in our 15 years in business. We've maintained very good relationships with our past brides (some even have become very close friends of ours). More than 200 of them answered a recent survey about our services. We asked: "What was the number 1 reason you picked us over ALL the other DJs out there?" Their response was pretty overwhelming: "Because we felt more like friends and not just another client!"
Our business has grown primarily on word-of-mouth. We really want to thank our wonderful and loyal couples who have been our biggest promoters. It's proof that when you do a job right, people remember.
Rather than spending time and money on advertising and large overhead budgets, we focus our efforts on establishing and maintaining our credibility through the service we provide. You can trust that we will do our very best to add the touches to your special day that will make it more memorable that you ever imagined.
With our best wishes,
Thomas & Laurie Kuerlemann

The dance floor was full all night!
I can't express enough how amazing Laurie was as our DJ for our wedding in September. Laurie was the first and only DJ we called. She made us laugh, she asked about me and my husband, she made us feel incredibly comfortable with her. She coordinated perfectly with our wedding coordinator and the night could not have gone smoother. The music was perfect the entire night and we didn't want it to end! The dance floor was full the entire night and it truly was a spectacular night. I would recommend Laurie without a doubt. She helped make our wedding the most perfect day and I am so thankful for having her on our special day.

These people know what they are doing. Laurie DJ'd our wedding but did so much more than just that. She was with us during the planning process from the get go. She was interested and immersed in our ideas and themes and helped us to explore how to make them even better. She was so enthusiastic and helpful that it felt like planning a great big party with a good friend. Her personal touch, while never escaping the boundaries of professionalism, was arguably the best part. We definitely recommend this service to anyone as we had zero issues, complications, or reservation after working with them. They are the best......period!

Platinum Party Events did an amazing job as DJ at our wedding reception.
All of our requested songs were played and Platinum Party Events did a great job of picking fun, upbeat songs to fill the remainder of our reception. We never felt like there was any “dead time” and the dancefloor was filled for the majority of our reception.
They handed out beaded necklaces to everyone on the dancefloor, which reenergized a lot of our younger cousins and put a big smile on everyone’s faces. I can’t say enough how awesome it was to have so many people constantly on the dancefloor. We have been to other wedding receptions where the dancefloor was empty and it was a little awkward, but our reception was the complete opposite.
In the months before our reception, we were worried about working our requested songs into the event timeline, but Laurie made herself available for phone calls before the reception to confirm pronunciations, songs, etc. And the Platinum Party Events website was very easy to navigate and enter in bridal party names, song choices, etc.
You often hear of people talking about things going wrong at their wedding reception, but we wouldn’t have changed a single thing. Platinum Party Events was an important part of our wedding reception and helped everything go smoothly from the introductions to the first dance to the cake cutting.
