Absolutely beyond our expectations!

Sean and Scott truly made our wedding the most special night of our lives. From meetings with Sean, to my many emails and questions, he made every step of planning so simple. Everything was right there in a list, available for us to work on over the course of several months. Sean and Scott were professional but still felt like friends we could reach out to at any time.

Wed Start was in charge of the ceremony music as well as the reception and everything went off without a hitch. A lot of the songs we wanted weren't on the usual list and they allowed us to send over various Youtube videos and string quartet versions and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. At the reception, they really captured our taste in music while still playing something for everyone. Towards the end of the night they even slowed everything down, had us get into a circle and played some of the speeches that were given at dinner. It was a beautiful moment that I will remember for the rest of my life.

I cannot say enough kind words about Wed Start! I would recommend them to anyone.

Sean at Wed Start is focused on making sure that your reception runs smoothly, that your guests have a memorable time, and that every one of the bride and groom's wishes are incorporated into his DJing. Sean is a master at his craft. He learned from the top 3 DJ companies in the Chicagoland area, and took this knowledge to serve his own customers at Wed Start. I highly recommend Sean and Wed Start!
