Best Wedding DJ and Photobooth!

Top Hat provided DJ services and a magic mirror photo booth for our wedding on June 1, 2024. They were AMAZING!

They provided my husband and I with a detailed worksheet to gather the relevant details of our wedding and our music preferences. We also had a call prior to the wedding to run through our event schedule and playlist. We gave our DJ, Tyler, a general vibe we were going for and he nailed it! Our dance floor was full all night and our guests had a blast.

The photo booth was perfect! There were no tech issues at all and people loved getting to print as many copies as they wanted. And they sent my husband and I a link to all the digital photos after the event. The attendant was so fun and patient with guests and her help really made everything rn smoothly.

Highly recommend Top Hat!

AMAZING!!!!! Highly recommend!!

My husband and I got married on 5/18/2024 at the Essex Resort and Spa. Mike was our DJ for the evening, and I could not believe how INCREDIBLE he was! He brought so much energy, played exactly what I had asked for, and was overall amazing. We had everyone on the dance floor and we’ve gotten so many compliments about how much fun the wedding was. During the maid of honor speech, Mike played the song she had mentioned in her speech, completely on a whim and unplanned! It was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ! Thank you guys so much!

Very happy with the Top Hat Entertainment team

We decided to work with Top Hat based on the recommendation from our venue, their price estimate and services offered. Mike was outstanding during our initial scoping calls and fully understood our goals. As we got closer to our wedding day we continued to refine our ideal music and shared that with the Top Hat team, they were really helpful with narrowing down the best versions of our selections. Our DJ was Mark and he absolutely crushed it, playing music across all the genres we identified and keeping with the vibe of our guests - the dance floor was activated the entire night and more importantly everyone was having a blast. We knew our guests would have fun, but looking around the dance floor we were blown away by the energy! We also had Christie supporting the Magic Mirror, she was so kind and helpful, making the PhotoBooth a huge hit. We were incredibly happy with Mark and Christie, they were an absolute dream team, executing our vision and ensuring our guests had the best time. We knew we were in great hands with Top Hat!
