DJ duo our dreams!!!

Debbie and Tony were the perfect pair to trust with our music! My husband (!!!) and I both come from families that share a love of singing, dancing, and music through the generations. Debbie and Tony shared an excellent variety of songs to choose from, and did not hesitate to add to them when we requested many selections of our own. They met our needs with love, understanding, and a personal connection you just don't see with every DJ. One of my favorite compliments of the night, from another wedding vendor no less - "Greatest wedding playlist of all time - I feel like I'm right at home listening to my record collection with my closest friends and family." It was the exact feeling of comfort and happiness that Justin and I were hoping to create, all in thanks to these two!

Debbie is amazing

Choosing Debbie as my planner was one of the best decisions ever, she got stuff done, and was so responsive. She contacted all the vendors and made sure everything was in check which was a huge stress relief as the wedding got closer. She offers so much help for the wedding day and I could not be more thankful. We also chose her DJ for our wedding day and the playlist was perfect. They even gave us a little wedding gift that was so sweet and unexpected. 100/10 recommend Debbie as your wedding planner.
