Mike is awesome! He takes the time to figure out what we as a couple wanted for our music and executed beautifully. I only wish we had more time to dance and enjoy the music at our wedding. Mike had a tough task ahead of him at our wedding as we had a World Series viewing party behind our venue and the bulk of guests were in and out of the reception space all evening. Regardless he took it in stride and made the night memorable and fun. Mike also is very detail oriented and punctual and will keep your event moving according to your timeline with ease! No need to stress if working with Mike. Thank you, Mike!!Sent on 11/18/2019

Dancing all night long!
Mike was one of the last wedding vendors we booked, and after reading his glowing reviews online, he seemed like “the guy.” We couldn’t have been more right! If I could give Mike 6 stars on this site, I would. If you live in the Northern VA/D.C./MD area, and you don’t hire Mike to be your DJ, you are making a huge mistake!Sent on 10/12/2019
Mike met with us a few weeks before the wedding to talk through logistics of the evening and through some of our “do not play” song requests. We were at first skeptical, because Mike does not take song requests (He will take about 10 requests if there are songs you have to hear at your wedding/event). We decided to trust Mike and not give him any requests. We let him do his thing. I cannot emphasize enough that our dance floor NEVER had a dull moment. Mike read the room and played songs that he knew our guests would dance to.
Mike played song after song after song. There was never a break between songs – one song flowed seamlessly into the next! He didn’t interrupt the music with unnecessary announcements – you never even noticed he was there throughout the dance portion of the evening! I overheard guests while they danced, saying: “I have to go to the bathroom, but I just can’t miss the next song!” Forget the photobooths, and just hire Mike to keep your guests dancing all night long! The multi-color/disco uplighting lit up and changed to the music, adding to the fun. When he turned that on, our guests literally gasped. My maid of honour had a lot of guests telling her how amazing the DJ was!
Mike was easy to work with the whole way through. He always let us know when he received our payments, and answered e-mails the same day I sent them. I wish every wedding I went to would hire Mike, because then I know it would be a blast! Guests told us it was one of (if not the most fun) weddings they have ever been to. I know a huge part of this was thanks to Mike!

From our first phone call, Mike was amazing to work with. He was impressively responsive, and truly helped shape our day-of timeline with his expertise. He gave us advice on what event would work at what point in the night, and everything went off without a hitch. We could tell he takes a lot of pride in his work, and he took special care to make sure everything from our ceremony music to name pronunciations for intros were perfect. From the get-go, we were confident in his experience and ability to read a crowd and apart from our "special songs" we gave him pretty much free reign with our playlist. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone stuck around until the very end! We've received so many compliments on Mike and are so happy we hired him for our wedding!Sent on 09/22/2019

Mike was everything we could have hoped for!
Like most couples, we felt entirely overwhelmed by the prospect of choosing our vendors – But Mike made our DJ decision easy! We initially loved that he had the ability to provide music and mics for an outdoor ceremony, but from our first phone call with Mike, we could tell that he was well-organized and detail oriented in a way that made us feel really well-supported and more comfortable with the planning process. Moving forward, Mike spoke with us by phone, through email, and even organized a meet-up in person in order to lock down and discuss more details about the wedding to help the entire event go smoothly. He was incredibly responsive, helpful, and provided guidance as questions came up along the way. Our venue was very rural and many of our plans were weather-contingent, but Mike was an absolute pro and his extensive experience with providing wedding DJ services helped us create manageable plans to cover all of our options.Sent on 08/07/2019
From the ceremony (which did get to be outdoors!) to the reception, Mike helped everything go perfectly. So many of our guests have contacted us to tell us how much they specifically enjoyed the music and dancing – From the first to the last song, our dance floor was absolutely packed! Wedding planning often feels like a team sport, and Mike is definitely someone you want on your roster - We wholeheartedly recommend Mike to all couples planning their own exciting day!

Mike is the best DJ in the business!
Mike is the absolute best!! We couldn't have asked for a more personal, fun, and knowledgeable DJ for our wedding. He has been in the business for over a decade and you can certainly tell-he exuded professionalism from our first encounter with him. He took the time out to call us when we first expressed interest, he met with us in person less than 2 months before our wedding to go over song choices, bridal party names, order of ceremony, etc. He even took the time out to learn the phonetic spelling of certain last names which I think just goes above and beyond in his attention to detail. Finally-we felt like we could really trust him with his music selections. We honestly had very few songs selected and just let him run the show and it was the BEST.PARTY.EVER!! He never the music break, everything flowed perfectly, there were no awkward pauses and he had great suggestions for us in the planning process. The uplighting services he provides are a huge plus too- if you're thinking of hiring a DJ in the DMV area, Mike is your guy!Sent on 04/20/2019

Fun, professional, and experienced DJ
From our first phone call, we knew that Mike was one of the most "normal" DJs we talked to. When we met with him, his enthusiasm and advice made us comfortable with letting him take the reins. He listened to our likes and dislikes while using his experience to keep the party going. He was professional and fun and we would definitely recommend him (and already have)!Sent on 06/29/2019
Malorie Glass · Married on 12/15/2018
Mike did an EXCEPTIONAL job for our wedding. The entire process from the first phone call to dancing the night away at the wedding flowed so seamlessly. Mike is extremely knowledgeable, and you can tell that he has been in the business for many years. For our wedding Mike took care of the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and uplighting. I only requested a handful of songs, but my one big goal was to have everyone on the dance floor all night. Mike exceeded my expectations. He was able to read the crowd so well, and played songs that everyone could sing and dance to. His uplighting was beautiful. Looking at our wedding photos, the shades of pink for the reception are elegant while the vibrant blues and reds during the dancing kept everyone on the dance floor. All of our guests are still talking about how much fun they had dancing, and two cousins have already asked for Mike's contact for their upcoming weddings. If you want a stress free, professional, DJ guru then I would definitely go with Mike!.Sent on 01/01/2019
Mike Blaufeld Boutique DJ Services & Uplighting's reply:Malorie thank you for having me as your DJ on the wedding day! You and Danny were such a pleasure to work with. The night was so much fun and a wedding to remember for years to come. I really felt very comfortable working with you and Danny. Thanks again in putting your trust in me to be your DJ the big Day. Happy 2019! DJ Mike Blaufeld

Amazing service and dependability
My now husband and I cannot express how much we appreciate all the hard work and time Mike spent with us for our wedding. We had no idea how to even write out a time line for our wedding day, but that didn't phase Mike one bit. He helped us from picking out songs for the cake cutting to making a list for our ceremony order to planning out our time line. Our wedding was Harry Potter themed and Mike did such a great job using music from the movies for our ceremony and entrance for the reception hall. The music Mike played during dinner was so nice and relaxing and I even had guests complimenting his choices. Once the dinner was over the dancing began. He started out with an easy dance for the first two songs, but I asked him to kick it up a notch and the party didn't stop till the venue closed for the evening. Everyone was on the dance floor having an amazing time the whole night. Our wedding was a few weeks ago and I still have friends and family telling me how much fun they had dancing all night. Thank you so much for making our big day such a success and filled with so many great memories.Sent on 11/06/2018

If you are searching for a phenomenal DJ that will make your wedding the most fun day possible and remembered by your guests for years to come, look no further!!! Mike is a truly fantastic DJ, so kind, and very easy to work with. He made planning a breeze (and kept us on track, as we definitely needed the extra help leading up to the day). In addition, he happily accommodated a very important addition to the music scene with a family member playing a few songs at the wedding. He coordinated that whole part seamlessly with the rest of the evening and helped my family member to plan it- above and beyond. The music at our reception was UNBELIEVABLE. I have a feeling our guests will remember the dancing for a long time to come as we all danced the night away! Mike is an absolute joy to work with and so skilled at what he does. Thank you so much for the night of our lives!Sent on 11/12/2018

Would absolutely recommend Mike as your wedding DJ with zero reservations. Mike was our DJ for our Carnegie Science wedding in June of 2018, and one of the best vendors we had the pleasure of working with. He was kind, professional, and quick to respond throughout the ENTIRE process. He played perfect music during our seated dinner, and kept the party fun and upbeat during dancing. Everything went off perfectly with Mike, from the introductions, the first dance, the toasts during dinner, and an incredibly fun dance party. We cannot recommend him highly enough.Sent on 06/26/2018
Katie · Married on 06/02/2018
Mike was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. To begin, he was so easy to work with and made picking songs and scheduling the wedding so easy. My husband and I are not great at picking out music, especially the kind that others would want to listen to (Punk and Indie are definitely not for a wedding!) and Mike helped so much. He played us multiple songs and great versions of the songs for the ceremony and the reception. He took some of the music we really like are worked it great into the dinner then did his thing during the dancing, while still respecting my desire to not have 2010 and later top hits that I despise from the radio. He really listened to everything I wanted and made it an amazing night. Many of our friends told us during and days after the wedding how awesome of a DJ Mike was. He got people on the dance floor who would NEVER have danced. The uplighting was also incredible. He stuck to blues and greens (the colors of our wedding) during dinner and then switched it up to move with the music which made the dancing even better. I listened to wedding wire when I found Mike, and you really should too! He's worth every penny.Sent on 06/11/2018
Sean · Married on 04/21/2018
We are in awe of Mike's ability to control the venue, and read the room! He was able to bring the entire reception to the dance floor and keep them there for 3 hours! Mike met with us a month before and talked through his plan. He was able to suggest where the DJ booth should be set up and answer all questions we had. We would highly suggest that you let him choose the music! As stated, he kept the dance floor going continuously for 3 hours without any suggestions from us. He can just read the room and know what to play! We still get compliments about how much fun the wedding was, especially the music and dancing. If given the chance, you should definitely book Mike for your next event. I could not say enough great things about him!Sent on 07/05/2018

Mike was a joy to work with from the beginning. You can tell he's been doing this for years and he's very professional. Everyone had fun, enjoyed themselves and danced the whole night. The lighting was beautiful, everything was timed perfectly from the ceremony to the first dance and the parent dances. We couldn't have asked for better :) I highly recommend Mike's DJ services for your special occasionSent on 04/15/2018
Mike Blaufeld Boutique DJ Services & Uplighting's reply:Thank you Melanie & David! You could not have ordered a more perfect weather day for a ceremony outside. I really enjoyed working with you! The Bruno Mars song "Rest of my Life" is a hidden jem for sure. I am glad you enjoyed it as the last song of the night. Good health and happiness to you both for the future.
Marc · Married on 11/19/2017
Mike was the DJ for our wedding a few weeks ago. Mike was our first vendor and we hired him immediately after speaking to him for 10 minutes and we didn't regret it for even a second! He did an outstanding job - the music sounded great and there was great variety and flow to the music. Mike also served as emcee and provided uplighting which was also superb. More than anything, Mike is a truly class act and his warmth, good humor and wisdom were hugely appreciated both on wedding day and before. Mike has hundreds of good reviews and for good reason. If you need a DJ and uplighting, look no further. Thank you again Mike!!Sent on 12/02/2017
Mike Blaufeld Boutique DJ Services & Uplighting's reply:Thank you Marc! You & Cristina are a lovely couple. Your wedding day was amazing and I truly enjoyed getting to know you both.

Mike came recommended to us from a couple of friends and was the 2nd DJ we "interviewed." After meeting with him, we immediately knew we had our DJ. He was unbelievably friendly and his confidence in his own abilities was incredibly reassuring.Sent on 11/06/2017
As the wedding drew closer, we gave Mike a list of songs that we knew we wanted to hear during the reception. The rest we left up to him based on his experience. I highly advise you to do this too. Mike is the consummate professional and knows what he's doing up there. Let Mike do what he does best and you will have your party of a lifetime. At the time of writing this review, we are over a week removed from our wedding and I'm still receiving texts from family, friends, and even our other vendors (!) commenting on what a fun party our wedding was and I have to give credit to Mike for setting the tone!
Hiring Mike will be the best decision you make and I guarantee there are no better DJ's out there! I would hire Mike again in a heartbeat and will be recommending him to all of my friends in the future.
Mike Blaufeld Boutique DJ Services & Uplighting's reply:Thank you Kevin & Lindsay! Your wedding reception was so much fun. I felt so comfortable working with you both. I thought it was just the perfect fit. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

Mike was fantastic in our wedding, he played music for all tastes even when our wedding was multicultural Mike had music for everybody. He is such nice nice person, kind and he replied all our questions and concerns in very short time. He makes you feel really comfortable and for me that was really important because I had many concerns about the party ( who wants a boring wedding?) And he gave me a lot of confidence and tranquility that everything would be fine and it was! He is a great dj and he did an awesome work with the uplighting and he worked very well with the other vendors. I recommend Mike 100% and I am sure you will not have any regrets!Sent on 12/07/2017

Mike was our DJ for our October wedding in Alexandria, VA. If you want a party, Mike Blaufeld is your guy! He knows how to keep people on the dance floor without the cheesy antics of most wedding DJs. We had the perfect mix of classics with today's hits to keep people dancing until the last song. We also used his uplighting service which completely transformed the ballroom space into a beautiful romantic setting. Highly recommend him without any hesitation!Sent on 10/24/2017

Let me start this review by saying Mike is excellent at what he does! We had such an incredible time at our wedding and loved every song Mike chose. We were on the dance floor from start to finish, which is exactly what we wanted! I booked Mike after an hour long phone call just discussing his DJ methods. A year later, we met with Mike and he was more knowledgeable than I could have imagined. He helped us with our timeline & organization, was willing to work with our hopes to have a fun & relaxed event versus your more traditional event, & really went above and beyond to make us feel like he had everything ready for our big day - and he most certainly did! I will continue to recommend Mike to family & friends!Sent on 10/03/2017
Mike Blaufeld Boutique DJ Services & Uplighting's reply:Thank you Courtney & Sean- I knew from the moment we first spoke via phone that it would be a great fit. Your wedding was so unique from the gourmet pizza all the way through the dancing. It was such a memorable evening! I am sure you will treasure those memories for a long time to come. Best wishes always.
Samantha · Married on 09/16/2017
Mike was the best! Everyone at our wedding had a great time and he kept the dance floor packed all night. Even my Grandma danced for most of the night. He had great mixes of all of your favorite songs, was accommodating when we asked him to play some cultural songs and required little to no guidance. We gave him a general idea of what we wanted and told him to play what he thought would be best, and we were not disappointed. I would highly recommend Mike!Sent on 10/09/2017

Mike was awesome! He deeply cares about his work, and he made sure to make the music at our wedding just what we asked for. He met with us in person and over the phone a few times beforehand to go over any questions, give recommendations, and make sure we understood the flow of the evening. He really knows how to read the crowd, too. He knew just what to play based on what was going on in the room. We had excellent peace of mind going into the wedding that we had absolutely nothing to worry about with DJ Mike Blaufeld. He is extremely professional and did an excellent job with our reception introductions, emceeing, and music selection throughout the reception.Sent on 10/20/2017

You have to book with Mike. I love him he is like a part of the family now, he did my moms wedding and he also did mine. I can't even express how helpful, kind and accommodating Mike is. I knew that if i had questions or was nervous or confused about something I could call him or email him day or night and he would get back to me ASAP with the answers and calming words. Mike took so much time to sit with us and make sure we were going to get everything that we wanted on our big day and he really delivered! The night ran smoothly thanks to him and the dance floor never died because he can really read the room and know what people want and what they will enjoy hearing and dancing to!Sent on 06/24/2017
Book him...seriously you will not regret it. I am also saying this as a truly harsh reviewer of most things.
Ally · Married on 05/28/2017
When we got engaged, the first vendor we booked was the DJ! Having our wedding be a party and everyone up and dancing during the reception was super important to us! Mike was absolutely phenomenal in every way. He was the most responsive of all our vendors (he answered emails within seconds sometimes!) and was very caring, patient, and enthusiastic throughout the whole planning process. He gave great suggestions for things I would have never thought of, like what time to fade out the parent dances and if we did or didn't need mics for the officiant and string quartet. The best part was ALL our guests were up and dancing on the dance floor! Even my 80 year old grandmother! It was more than we could have asked for and we couldn't be happier. THANK YOU Mike for over-delivering and making our wedding reception the party we dreamed it would be!!!!Sent on 07/19/2017

I was referred to Mike by a friend who had gotten married and there is no doubt why he's so highly rated. From our initial contact to our wedding day on May 6th, 2017, Mike was very responsive and gave us great input. Not only did he guide us through our timeline, he was there to guide us through our wedding day (along with our planner) by giving us a quick heads up for each step throughout. The day really does go fast but he helped us cover everything that was important to us. He helped with song selections and helped me find the perfect version of the song I used for my (bridal) processional. We are a couple in our 40s with older, mostly married guests and he really tailored everything to us and our guests. He suggested we do an Anniversary Dance and days later we were still hearing how much guests enjoyed it. Our guests also mentioned how easy he was to approach and took requests. If you are looking for a dedicated DJ you can't go wrong with Mike.Sent on 05/12/2017
Greg · Married on 04/22/2017
It was truly a pleasure working with Mike. We interviewed multiple DJs before we spoke with Mike and we immediately got a good vibe from him that we really liked. In addition to liking his style as a DJ, we appreciated that he is willing to help with wedding planning as well. He gave us input on multiple iterations of our timeline and even offered to make it for us from scratch if we wanted. He’s also very organized and has a very helpful planning form that he helped us fill out. He gave us some great suggestions for our ceremony music and other key songs throughout the night since we didn’t really know where to start (first dance, cake cutting, etc). He was always very responsive to emails and was overall very easy to work with leading up to the wedding.Sent on 05/31/2017
On the day of the wedding, he delivered just as he had described in our first meeting. The ceremony music was very good and we received multiple compliments about it. When the dance floor opened, he started with some oldies to get the older guests involved and smoothly worked his way up to newer music. He had really good transitions between songs and there was a good rhythm going from one song to the next. We’ve been to weddings where the combination of songs feels random and it definitely makes the dance floor lose energy. That was never the case with Mike as he kept the dance floor packed all night and was able to keep multiple generations happy throughout. He was really good at reading the crowd, and my parents said they really appreciated that he played music that they enjoyed dancing to. My wife and I really appreciated that he adhered to our do not play list even though I know some of my friends were trying hard to get him to play one song from it. We also appreciated that he did all the necessary announcements, but never got on the mic just for the sake of talking.
Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our experience working with Mike, and we highly recommend him!
