Skip and Laurie are wonderful! They were considerate and willing to work with us with whatever we wanted. They didnt make us feel silly about our music choices or talk down to us. They were friendly, helpful, punctual and professional and very reasonably priced. We and our guests enjoyed all the music selections they chose themselves to include in the dance portion of the evening. They made us feel at ease so we could trust them with our big day. They even drove to the venue, which was an hour away, ahead of the wedding date just to check out the stage and ceremony area, without us asking them to. They responded to every message and email almost immediately and were very thorough in figuring out exactly what we wanted. They did the music for before and during the ceremony, the music for the reception and even recorded a video of the ceremony, toasts/special portions of the evening and dance floor. I highly recommend their services!Sent on 12/11/2019

Skip is awesome
Skip and Laurie went above and beyond to make our wedding day awesome. They were involved in so many little details beyond just the music. They know Mackinac Island and Stone Cliffs and we enjoyed having them at the wedding.Sent on 11/12/2020

Wedding and reception
Skip did an amazing job. Originally we just had him booked as our sound and DJ for the wedding and reception. We also had his wife do our videography. Two weeks before our wedding we found out our pastor could not do the ceremony do to the Covid-19 restrictions set out by his elders. Skip was so great about jumping into action to be our officiant as well! He immediately emailed us a couple different ceremony layouts he does and when we made some edits and sent it back he called to make sure everything was the way we wanted it. At our rehearsal he came prepared with a back up power block Incase there wasn’t power at our outdoor ceremony site. The wonderful day came and he even came dressed for the part (we had a Harry Potter themed wedding) with a house color tie and a few references to it in our ceremony. Everything flowed so well. Our reception was great, even with my family not being big dancers he was able to get some people up and dancing with some of the great tunes he had selected. Our videos turned out great and I can’t wait to be able to look back on those in the years to come! They also had a better rate than anyone else we got a quote from.Sent on 11/20/2020
Northern Lights Entertainment's reply:Janet, how do we thank you enough for an awesome, detailed review. You and Michael were awesome to work with. Even though you had to change venues, nothing phased you. Laurie and I toast you with a butterbeer and wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Organized, Responsive, and Helpful
We worked with Skip and Laurie for our July wedding this year (yes, in the midst of a hot sunny day and Covid-19). Skip was the wedding DJ and also helped us coordinate the wedding day. He was very organized, responsive, and helpful right from the beginning and throughout. On the wedding day, he arrived and setup at the venue well in advance. He also did a great job as the DJ and even lead the small group with the line dance every now and then! We are happy with our decision to work with Skip for our special day and would highly recommend him (and the team) to help with yours!Sent on 09/17/2020
Northern Lights Entertainment's reply:Thank you for your detailed review, Sanket. It was an honor to be a part of your day and help make it special and unforgettable. It was my pleasure! We wish you and Kalyn all the best and a long, happy life together.

Jim was super helpful, communicative, and flexible. He rearranged his schedule to ensure he could attend our rehearsal, even though we agreed he didn't need to. Everything went super smooth, and he kept everyone having a bast on the dance floor all night.Sent on 09/03/2019

Amy · Married on 08/26/2017
Very involved bride with great support and understanding from NLE!
We had the most wonderful experience with NLE (Northern Lights Entertainment). From the very start Skip was incredibly helpful with all wedding details. Hiring him to officiate and provide the music for the entire wedding/reception made things SO EASY! Two huge items checked off my wedding to do list! He answered all my my 47 emails incredibly fast and let me be as involved or uninvolved with my music choices and ceremony as I wanted to be. I was one to be VERY involved and he had no problem answering to my every need for the special day and everything leading up to our special day! I can't recommend him enough and know you will have the same experience as I did!Sent on 12/11/2018
Northern Lights Entertainment's reply:Thank you for the kind words, Amy. We loved being a part of your and Brandon's day and are happy to now call you friends. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review.

Bubba & Charlie's special day. 40 years of Love
Our special day was a total surprise to my husband and Eric was able to make it happen on short notice. Eric made it extra special. He wrote a special vow for us. Everything in the vow was about us and our life. Eric puts a lot of Love in his vows. Laurie did a awesome video which we will always cherish. We would highly recommend Eric & Laurie Westmoreland. We Love them.Sent on 01/27/2019
