    My husband and I were very particular about what types of music we wanted vs. didn't want for our wedding reception. Before and during the wedding A Special Event worked with us on a personal level to make sure all our selections were perfect. The DJs were very professional, friendly, fun, and flexible. The music, up-lighting, and service were perfect. The dance floor was full of people from the first song to the last, from babies to grandparents. Getting the right DJ can make or break a reception, and we would recommend A Special Event every time!

    Very responsive and accommodating to special requests for songs and games. A Special Event DJ helped with a special song request for our first dance and they made the Shoe Game a blast! Our guests were on the dance floor all night long! I would recommend them to anyone!

    The DJ was great and better than we could have hoped. The dance floor at our wedding was packed all night. We loved the online system and lhow we could pick mso many songs for our play list. The entire company was helpful and responsive during the time we planned our wedding. Our wedding was at a venue which had never hosted a wedding and Tim and the entire company put us at ease and prepared for every possible scenario. We had no problems or hiccups on our wedding day and A Special Evetn DJ helped make it a day we will never forget.

    Josh was our DJ and more than exceeded our expectations. He was helpful beyond his DJ duties, getting us drinks and tearing down buffet tables. He did a wonderful job keeping the guests engaged and dance floor full. His professionalism was second to none. We have received numerous inquiries into who handled our DJ services after attending our wedding and we gladly recommended A Special Event DJ.

    The dance floor was packed all night! They did an amazing job of keeping the energy up. Very organized and kept the reception on track. Loved that we went over a Reception plan before the big day! It was essential to how great the night turned out. Very professional and easy to work with.

    We had ASE for our wedding in October. They were so easy to work with from the beginning! Answered all of our questions quickly, set up a planning meeting with us and were able to locate our special request music. Our DJ was amazing - very laid back and kept us on track - the dance floor was full all night. Highly recommend!

    Tim is so easy to work with and we don't need to worry about a thing. He always has everything set up in a timely manner and his staff is friendly and accommodating. We have used his services for our past 2 holiday parties.

    The DJ was AMAZING! Everyone danced right up until the end. People still comment how amazing the reception was. My only small minor non-positive feed back would be that the DJ was kind of quiet so it was hard to hear during some of the specialty dances we tried to do. The guests were not quite sure was going on. Other than that, the DJ listened to requests and played GREAT music and respected my wishes for nothing cheesy. :)

    Willis at Special Event DJ was awesome!! He did a terrific job at our wedding reception, played all the songs we wanted, didn't play the ones we didn't. Kept a low profile and was laid back and easy to talk to the whole evening. Just what we were looking for!

    My wedding party and reception was huge and we were running way behind on time, but our DJ was super flexible, professional, FUN, and did an overall excellent job. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night and fun was had by all. Completely unforgettable!

    Our DJ, Dan, for our September wedding in Des Moines was AWESOME! Very professional, nice and definitely felt the crowd out to keep the dancing going all night. Dan was even put on the spot with a surprise my dad had for his father of the bride speech and it went so smooth that I thought Dan knew about it going into the wedding. I highly recommend ASE DJ and Dan for weddings!

    Super easy service to use. They listen to your requests and had great communication along the way. A timeline checklist and reminders of things to do next to prepare for your big day was very nice and helpful!

    Im really glad I picked A Special Event to be the DJ at my wedding. They did a fabulous job and I loved their prices. I also found it very comforting that my DJ called me a few days before the wedding just to go over all the important songs and to let me know what her name was and what time she would be there.

    The owner is NOT the actual DJ that will be at your event -- he has several DJs that serve at the events that are booked. These DJs are fantastic, and we had a great experience. But be advised that Tim who you might meet at a convention or expo is not the individual that will be serving as DJ at your event.

    The music selection was great. Our DJ was very professional. I wish our DJ had turned up the volume on her microphone when she announced events, most of our guests had no idea what was going on. My husband's Mother didn't even know it was time for the Mother Son dance because she couldn't hear the announcement.

    We used ASE Nebraska for our wedding in September and could not be happier with our reception! We used both DJ and Photo Booth through them and people keep talking about how much fun they had at our reception. Our DJ was laid back, fun, and the few hiccups we had the night of didn't phase him - he keep everything moving along and made sure everyone was having fun. We will recommend this company to anyone looking for a great DJ for their wedding!

    I can only imagine how busy A Special Event DJ must be in the summer, and on top of that Ellie, their wedding planner, was about to have a baby right before our wedding! Still, we felt like a truly valued customer during the whole process, and Tim was great about jumping in to keep the lines of communication going. ASEDJ's online music tools and template agendas really helped my husband and I plan out our day. We hired ASEDJ for both ceremony and reception services and both Cody and Elijah were very friendly and flexible on the wedding day. We live in Chicago and had the wedding in Iowa, so did not have an opportunity to meet either of them in person, but once they were set up they were ready to go! Cody did a great job of playing a variety of music to keep all ages dancing, and was open to requests while still keeping our do-not-play list front of mind. Our dance floor was full from start to finish and our guests had an incredible time. So fun!
