Amazing Experience On Our Big Day
We can’t say enough great things about Paris Creative. In planning our big day from 1,500 miles away, Lou was extremely helpful and always willing to jump on FaceTime to go over spur of the moment details. I was very particular about our eclectic music choices and he helped to focus our vision into a reception that had our guests on the dance floor all night. We received a ton of compliments on the variety and energy brought by Lou and he truly made our day one everyone will remember for years to come!Sent on 04/22/2019

DJ Lou is hands down what you want.
Literally, if you are looking for a DJ this is the man you want. My wife and I booked Lou for our wedding and he was one of the easiest parts of our wedding planning and one of the best parts of our day. He has an amazing web portal to input/track/plan out your wedding music. You can be as intense or laid back with it as you'd like, DJ Lou will walk you through everything. He makes time to video chat with you multiple times to iron out the kinks and make sure everything is what you want. He mic'd up our outdoor ceremony, accommodated our friends plugging in band equipment, and expertly curated music flow throughout the entire night. We had an eclectic range of music and DJ Lou made it flow perfectly. A lot of our guests specifically told us how great the music was which is a huge testament to Lou. He is a master of his craft and his experience kept our reception timeline on track and we couldn't have done that without him. Could not recommend high enough.Sent on 08/17/2019

Great experience from day one
We were very happy with our decision to pick Lou, as he came as a recommended DJ with our Venue (Senate Garage). He made sure to ask all of the right questions leading up the ceremony and was very flexible in our requests on music and support for a live 3 song set. Would definitely suggest Lou to anyone looking for a party with great energy.Sent on 07/16/2019

Best day ever!
I can't say enough about how great DJ Lou was to work with!! From our first meeting up until our big day everything went so smoothly. DJ Lou is so detail oriented and really takes his time talking with you to get to know you and your tastes. After myself and my husbands first meeting with Lou we knew we wanted to work with him. He keeps you on track with check in and reminder emails (so helpful!) He put myself and my wedding party at ease with some jitters before our big introduction! The music was awesome and us along with all of our guests had the best time ever!! I would absolutely recommend DJ Lou I promise you will not be disappointed and be lucky to work with him!Sent on 06/02/2019

We hired Lou as our DJ and emcee for a 5/2019 wedding in upstate NY. From the getgo, Lou put us at complete ease in terms of planning and executing the fun at our event; he scheduled a series of check-ins, encouraged us to fill out forms (in his impressive online system) noting requests, must-plays, do-not plays, and special songs, and he made sure to coordinate with the other folks involved in our wedding so everyone was on the same page. The result was a dance floor that our guests refused to leave, including an impromptu 25-minute dance session that happened before dinner was even served. (Lou also mic'd our ceremony, which was a completely different location and acoustic environment than our reception.)Sent on 05/31/2019
Ultimately, I can't recommend Lou highly enough! He is extremely technically proficient, has encyclopedic musical knowledge, and really takes the time to get to know (and eventually impress!) his clients.

Hire him asap!
Lou is a consummate professional - I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a stellar DJ. We used him for our wedding and he put us at ease from the start. He will guide you through what can be a daunting process - look no further!Sent on 05/16/2019

DJ Lou is the best!
We got married at Senate Garage in Kingston, NY in January 2019 and DJ Lou provided the music and audio support for our ceremony, plus of course the music for our ceremony and reception.Sent on 07/28/2019
He is extremely responsive to inquiries and willing to answer all logistical questions. He has a great deal of experience in the wedding industry and offers very helpful tips and advice.
He will also help you stay organized throughout the chaotic wedding process. You will receive reminder e-mails of important planning steps along the way which is really a lifesaver when you are dealing with multiple vendors and deadlines. He provides a link to an online portal that has various planning documents where you can provide all necessary information regarding your ceremony/reception and music preferences.
Most importantly, he has an extensive knowledge of music and so if you really care about the music selection at your wedding (like we did), you will have some great planning conversations. Overall, we can’t recommend DJ Lou highly enough.

GREAT music. SMOOTH timeline. BEST DJ ever.
We had all of our big vendors booked except for our DJ, we left that for last. We knew that DJ’s could make or break the entire mood of your big day because we’ve been to weddings where no one is on the dance floor and we were terrified of that happening at ours. After reading reviews and looking at a few websites we came across Paris Creative and I was instantly impressed with how organized the website was. I contacted DJ Lou and he responded in record time, immediately making a facetime meeting date since we live over an hour away from his office. Right from the get go he made us feel super comfortable and listened to what we were envisioning for our day. He has an online portal to browse/pick special songs for first dance, cake cutting, entrances, etc. you could also make payments and there was a timeline of your big day. We were nervous since we like old country, classic rock and 80’s and 90’s rock/pop but knew a lot what we normally listen to isn’t “dancing” music. We started making our own playlist to send to him, but it became frustrating and decided to hand it off to DJ Lou and let him work his magic. We struggled to pick certain special songs because there’s a million out there and he reminded us of some that we love but totally forgot about. We had one more facetime meeting before our big day and we didn’t have a doubt in our mind that it was going to run smoothly because of how organized DJ Lou was. He was very attentive the whole night and as we were going around to all of the tables to thank guests for coming, he kept the music low key and once we were done at our last table I looked up and he was waiting for my cue to start the dance music. We told him people could request songs, but we didn’t want any rap or vulgar music and there was one song that was requested several times, he informed us and we gave him permission to play it. Our guests absolutely raved over the music he played and that they knew most of the songs and he knew when to play a slow song so we could all catch our breath. Overall best day of our lives and we know DJ Lou at Paris Creative helped make that happen. Long winded review and I could go on and on, but for such good reasons!Sent on 12/13/2018

Lou keeps the Party going!
DJ Lou knows his music. DJ Lou knows how to read a crowd. He worked with us and let us really pick everything we wanted. We went decade by decade giving our preferences of styles and artists we liked those we didn’t (no electric slide please and thank you). He also coordinated with all of our other vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page. DJ Lou is very familiar with the venues in the Hudson Valley/CT area so he will know the best place for speakers to go to get the party rocking. Rest assured DJ Lou will be ever present; he’s able to control all speakers and turntables/music from his iPad. Go with Lou!Sent on 11/18/2018

DJ Lou was professional, calm, attentive, accommodating, helpful, and focused!! All of our family & friends raved about how great of a job he did at my wedding and we completely agree!! He coordinated very well with the photographer & catering company making sure everything went smooth. He knows how to feel a crowds energy while still playing the style of music we requested. From beginning to end, Lou was very quick to respond to questions we had, gave us wedding planning tips, and was a genuinely kind human! I would hire Lou again in a heart beat!! Thank you Lou!!Sent on 09/25/2018

From the very first meeting Lou paid attention to what we wanted. He asked all the right questions and left nothing to chance. He was professional, courteous, attentive yet not overbearing. He even offered to call my caterer when they didn’t arrive as scheduled. The music was right on point. Welcome reception, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception went better than we could ever have imagined. We spoke about what he would provide and he delivered. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Even his method of payment was simple. Lou is a true professional, a pleasure to work with.Sent on 09/25/2018

We cannot say enough good things about Lou Paris’ DJ service. From the moment we contacted him to the end of our wedding he provided a five-star service. He immediately returned e-mails, was gracious with his time meeting in person multiple times before the wedding. He created an online system for organizing your event that you can sign in to and tweak at your convenience, he was professional and fun at the wedding reception and played bangers that got the entire wedding crowd into the event, not just a niche group or two. He was personable, easy to work with, and all around exactly the guy you’d want DJ’ing your wedding. I will recommend Paris Creative to anyone that needs a DJ for any event, not just a wedding. Five starts through and through.Sent on 08/26/2018

YES! You should hire DJ Lou, he is amazing!
There are so many reasons that you should book DJ Lou! We had great interactions from the moment we contacted him! He was personable, fun & helpful without being overbearing. He truly took the time to get to know us and accommodated our wide range of musical tastes. He was knowledgeable on many genres and had great suggestions. When it came time for "the big day", Lou nailed it! He was set up and ready to go early. He helped our many moving parts go smoothly! Lou took care of sound for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception flawlessly. Everything was perfectly timed! He had a great ability to read the crowd during the reception and kept the party going without interjecting himself into it. We couldn't be happier to have chosen him as our DJ!!Sent on 10/16/2018

When I began my search for a DJ for my wedding, I knew I had something particular in mind. As a musician, it was very important that the quality of the music and sound be excellent, and that the selections be reflective of us as a couple while creating a positive and fun party atmosphere. I knew in order to accomplish this I would need to either pick out the playlists myself and find someone who would play it for us, or find a DJ talented and professional enough to learn what aesthetic we were looking for and what music we like, and use his experience and judgement to craft a unique experience for us and our guests (rather than the cut and paste playlist at a lot of weddings).Sent on 07/06/2018
I was lucky enough to come across Lou Paris’s information early in my search, and I quickly found that no one else I talked to expressed the same dedication to achieving our vision. His knowledge and familiarity with music outside of the mainstream was impressive. In our discussions, he provided valuable tips and opinions for how to efficiently structure the schedule and layout of the reception.
Above all, Lou Paris is a nice guy - absolutely a pleasure to work with. He always took the time to answer my questions, responded to my emails quickly, and is reliable and trustworthy. My guests had a fabulous time dancing the night away at our wedding, due largely to the skill and dedication of DJ Lou Paris.
Alexandra · Married on 04/28/2018
DJ Lou was amazing. From him and my now husband meeting, they got along great and he even offered to do the entire wedding on vinyl. (We didn't choose that option but it would've been awesome!) Lou was easy to talk to, set up a Skype meeting with us and was so attentive with details. We love classic rock and he was able to incorporate that into the fun wedding songs that everyone loves to dance to. During our first dance, there was a lightning strike and the speakers went out (it makes for a great story) but Lou didn't panic, our wedding party kept singing the song and Lou got everything working so fast and we will always remember that. We couldn't have of been happier with our choice to hire Lou and would recommend it to anyone for your DJ needs.Sent on 06/18/2018

I posted this on google at first, but wanted to share it here too because I feel that strongly about Lou. tl;dr: I cannot imagine a better wedding DJ than Lou from Paris Creative.Sent on 10/31/2017
Like all weddings, we definitely had our share of difficulties. A bridesmaid dropped out, our venue flip-flopped on whether another wedding would be there early the next morning, and we had to fire our useless planner 10 days before the wedding! But throughout it all, DJ Lou of Paris Creative was there, patient, understanding, and going above and beyond to help us through planning a large, self-done wedding.
Lou was kind, professional, and communicative from the get-go. We did have hesitations after our initial interview because his background and personal tastes lean towards old school r&b (not our cup of tea). However, we are SO glad that we stuck with him. Lou listened to our preferences for music and DJ style (high-octane, in-your-face DJing was not going to fly at our black-tie wedding), and delivered perfectly. He was on cue and en pointe the entire day and evening for both ceremony and reception.
Again, he went above and beyond in helping us plan and schedule our wedding day too. Up front he laid out what we should expect from him regarding communication and planning, and he kept to his promises 100%. Any time we reached out, he was prompt to reply, be it email, phone, or skype. Don't be fooled by his easy-going demeanor: while he keeps the calm, relaxed approach during your day, he absolutely is on top of everything he does for you, and more.
I can't state it enough: Lou is an absolute rockstar. He is a skilled, experienced professional who knows his equipment, and will deliver everything he promises. He is organized, kind, efficient, and an all-around genuinely great guy. On your wedding day, there will be snafus and things that don't go according to plan. If you hire DJ Lou, your sound, music, and announcements for your ceremony and reception will NOT be one of them.
Jaclyn · Married on 10/21/2017
Lou is exceptional. From a musical standpoint we were really happy. For cocktail hour we wanted jazz and folk/americana while at the reception we wanted a completely different feel (lots of 80s and 90s hits). Lou delivered perfectly for both. However, lots of DJs are good with music. Lou was also able to offer additional services that helped us so much and differentiated him from the rest. In a nutshell, he's much more technical than most DJs. Our wedding was black tie with an outdoor ceremony and a tented reception. Lou did an amazing job with our ceremony music from carefully controlling sound levels to providing wireless mics and coordinating with the videographer to provide backup sound. At certain parts of the ceremony, like our butterfly release, I'd chosen music for 'atmosphere.' Lou hit every cue and the music seamlessly faded in and out. Our reception featured two musical numbers. In one, 5 ppl sang live while accompanied by a studio-recorded track of 30 recorded singers and music. In the other, my mother sang live to instrumental background music. Lou did a beautiful job mixing sound for these.Sent on 10/31/2017
As an MC and just generally as an advocate for the couple, you also can't do better than Lou. He was responsive, professional, very kind, and made us feel comfortable and truly looked out for our needs. He was respectful of the wedding timeline and always came and found me when changes needed to be made (ie. switching the order of toasts). I never felt he bothered us unnecessarily but he also respected our right to make certain decisions.
And here's the kicker. Several of our other wedding vendors commented on how Lou enabled them to do their jobs better, whether it was the videographer saying he'd never felt so supported on sound or the wedding planner saying she never thought she'd get the whole crowd out for the sparkler run but Lou managed to make it happen. So, thank you, Lou. Hiring you for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made.
Kayla · Married on 10/07/2017
Words cannot even begin to express how wonderful DJ Lou is! Lou goes beyond his call of duty to make not only the music perfect but to make sure the bride and groom are taken care of. Lou became my right hand man the night of my wedding. Our guests continue to rave about the music and DJ Lou knows how to get the party going and knows how to use songs to make transitions throughout night. Lou is comprehensive, attentive, and will make all of your dreams for DJ services come true for your wedding day.Sent on 10/29/2017

When we were deciding on a DJ, we didn't really know how to pick. Every one had the same website, with the same songs, and the same services offered. But Lou offers much, MUCH more.Sent on 09/24/2017
Lou doesn't just offer great DJing. Lou offers a wedding EXPERIENCE. He not only helped us pick our songs and gave us advice on the wedding planning process, he also helped us block out the reception and made us think about details we never even THOUGHT of (such as micing up the officiant during the wedding ceremony).
As for the DJing itself: again, you're not just getting "man and an iPod". Lou seamlessly transitioned between songs, fading in and out so that the party never stopped moving. He also was constantly remotely checking the volume levels of speakers throughout the venue, so that those on the dance floor could keep the party going while those in the surrounding tables could actually HEAR each other talk.
Lou was most definitely one of the best, if not THE best choice we made for our wedding. Highly recommended.

Lou was utterly and totally amazing. I can't even begin to express what an incredible job he did for our wedding. From our first communication, I knew I could trust him completely to take care of all of our audio and music needs, and he went above and beyond my expectations. He is extremely responsive and was open to all of our quirky ideas, including editing our first dance song and going over a script for a Korean tea ceremony. His website is amazing, and guided me to organize a precise schedule for the entire day (which was extremely helpful not only for the audio/music, but for us, our wedding party, and all of our vendors). As anyone reading this probably knows, wedding planning is extremely stressful and it is such a huge relief to have a vendor who responds quickly to emails and is happy to offer solutions to any problems you encounter. On our big day, he unfortunately was stung by wasps as he was setting up the audio for our ceremony and was obviously in pain. Despite this, he was the consummate professional, making sure that our ceremony audio was perfect for our guests, and then performing incredibly well at our cocktail hour and reception. We didn't micro manage the music too much, just shared our preferred genres and a few favorite artists. Our trust in him was well founded - his music choices were perfect. He frequently checked in with us to make sure that we hit all the major points in the schedule and kept the dance floor packed until closing time. He did such an incredible job that our guests even chanted that he should stay and play more songs, but unfortunately our venue kicked us out. :-p My new husband and I both agreed that he was the standout vendor of our wedding. Book him for your event now!Sent on 08/22/2017

Lou was awesome. Organized, helpful - he went above and beyond our expectations of a DJ.Sent on 07/24/2017
Lou’s website was clean and classy and that same aesthetic translated perfectly to our wedding. Another reason we chose Lou was his communication. He responds promptly to emails and questions, while also not pressuring you to choose him. Lastly, his prices were very competitive for the area.
Pre-wedding, Lou was exceptionally organized. He sent us periodic emails to keep us on track with planning, and was always available to answer any questions we had about the wedding - whether music related or not. We met Lou via Skype and his demeanor was super friendly, confident, and relaxed. He listened to what we wanted for our wedding, and offered advice where we asked for it. He got in contact with our other vendors to coordinate sound/timeslines/etc. and make sure that everyone was on the same page.
On our wedding day, Lou arrived early to set-up. We had him DJ both our ceremony and reception. He helped to organize the bridal party and instruct them in their entrances. We had discussed the type of music that we wanted Lou to play prior to our wedding day, and Lou stuck religiously to our request. Other than discussing genres, we put the control in Lou’s hands, and he kept the partying going all night. We had a solid 2.5+ hours of dancing, and everyone was EXHAUSTED by the time the night was over because the energy was so high the whole time. Lou would periodically check-in with us to see if there was anything we needed. Honestly, it feels like we should have paid him as not only as DJ but as a Day of Coordinator!
It was an amazing day, no small part in thanks to Lou. I would absolutely recommend him for anyone’s wedding or other special event, as he is amazing, experienced, classy, and most importantly knows good music and is willing to work with his clients to ensure that their vision is fulfilled.
Thank you thank you thank you Lou for making our day unforgettable.

Lou was an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He was the ultimate blend of personal and professional, and made sure to capture everything that we wanted, emotionally, on our special day. Between managing the tempo of the events and selecting the right music to accompany each moment, we were never left wanting more from him. We would highly recommend that everyone choose Paris Creative to usher in their union.Sent on 05/05/2017
