Amazing vibes!

When my fiance and I started looking for a wedding DJ, we knew we were looking for something a little different, someone who would understand our taste in music and our crowd. Rian was 100% that person for us. He has a few mixes on his website that give a great idea of the kind of music he plays - I found them really helpful and fun to dance to!

Rian was super responsive right off the bat and seemed excited to work with us. We met over zoom a few weeks before the wedding and he asked a bunch of great questions to get to know our music taste.
On the day of the wedding, he and his assistant arrived early to set up. Our officiant was mic'd for the ceremony and we had a handheld mics for the vows. The music flowed perfectly from pre-ceremony all the way to the last song. Rian was an excellent MC as well, ushering the night along while staying in the background.

If you are looking for an alternative wedding DJ who is the utmost professional and also a super nice guy, you've found him!

The dj you want to hire!

Music is how my fiancé and I bonded and we knew that who we hired as a DJ was very important to us. From our initial meeting, I knew this is who we had to work with. He knew the less well-known artists that we love and made me feel so at ease when it came to the flow of the day and how he would play a part in MC'ing and bringing it all together. His survey was thoughtful, all communication was prompt, professional and so personable.
On our wedding day, we got so many compliments on the wedding for every aspect of it. He absolutely nailed it and I could not recommend him enough!

HEADLINE: If you are reading this, hire Rian.

HEADLINE: If you are reading this, hire Rian.

He is so much more than a wedding DJ. We had 3 venues for our wedding and Rian did PA and soundtracked all of them, from 11am to 12am, and didn’t break sweat. He genuinely wanted to make everything we wanted work on the day, nothing we asked was too much. We had microphones and music at the ceremony, DJing at the drinks, DJing and microphones for speeches at the dinner. He is by far the best value for money of any vendor you can hire.

I really struggled looking for a wedding DJ on the various wedding websites that was right for us, my searches kept coming up with the same main character energy, EDM blaring, local radio DJs who would speak between songs and have the same generic playlists for wherever they were playing. Rian marketed himself as “the alternative wedding DJ”, so I reached out and I’m so happy I did. As a DJ myself I really connected with his expansive music knowledge and his deep appreciation for music.

We had 4 or 5 planning phone calls with Rian where we went through our music preferences and running order. He helped us make Spotify playlists for all the venues, even sub-playlists for various moments we wanted. When those moments actually happened the perfect song was playing, it felt special and so natural. He was always available for music suggestions but really helped us make the playlist we wanted, I remember hearing a track or two he added throughout the night and they were seamless selections that really matched/enhanced our original playlist.

For me the highlight, and what makes Rian so unique, is how happy he was to be a part of our day. He loved playing the music and loved being there. Everyone the following day said how good the DJ was, if that’s not validation I don’t know what is.

Rian, you were perfect, thanks for making our day. We couldn’t have done it without you.
