PatrickMichael Weddings was hands-down the best vendor decision we made for our wedding. From our very first conversation, it became clear that to Michael, DJing is not just a job, it's a lifestyle. He went out of his way to make our wedding day personal and stress-free and helped make memories that we will be laughing about for the rest of our lives. We cannot recommend this vendor enough!
Hands down the best decision we made for our wedding! In the middle of the hustle and bustle and nerves, Mike steps in and is a calm! He reassures you constantly that he has it and not to worry which is just amazing when you are moments away from ceremony time and you forgot something! He wasn’t the DJ for our wedding or just the entertainment, he was family! We absolutely loved working with him and Patrick Michael Weddings from the very beginning! We hope to never lose touch! We highly highly highly recommend them if you want what is best for your dream wedding!
I almost didn't write this, but I felt I had to. I will start this review by saying Michael is an excellent DJ. He did a wonderful job with the music for our ceremony and reception, the whole room was dancing for most of the time. If this review was about being a DJ, he would get a 5. But when Michael pitches his services to you, he promises the moon. He will tell you he will keep up with you from the time you book him until the time you are married. He will also tell you he will add little fun stories to introduce your wedding party, your love story, and whatever else you could think of. He will sound convincing, he will tell you all about other weddings - almost too much - and you will be sold. In reality, he will forget about your meetings, and start by asking for payment. He very well may read through the mountains of information he asked you for, but in our case he did not before our third meeting. We actually elected to pay him the full remaining amount at the time of the second payment because we didn't want another email saying "your payment is late. Also, we should probably meet to talk about your wedding." I should also point out, there isn't an easy way to pay him, and "late" was by 3 days - and almost 2 months before our wedding. All of this would have been fine, except he spent the Wednesday and Thursday (until 10:30pm on the night before) before my Friday wedding texting me for information. He had all of our details well before the wedding (by a month), but decided to wait until 2 days before to ask us for more information. On our wedding day he introduced 3 of my 4 bridesmaids with incorrect personal information, called my husband's cousin his nephew, introduced his best man with my husband's name, introduced my male nephew ring-bearer as the flower girl, and ad-libbed our love story. In short, he was a wonderful DJ, but the extras he promises and the price that goes with them did not live up to what we expected throughout the entire process.
My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Michael!! He was given such short notice (a week to be exact) and presented himself at the wedding as if he'd know us for a year!! He was more than professional and asked all of the questions he needed to ask to make sure our day was nothing other than perfect, and it was. We would recommend Michael or Patrick to any bride and groom for their wedding!!! Thank you guys so much!!
Michael definitely made our wedding perfect! He was easy and fun to work with. He made sure everything suited our personalities and the music at our reception was fantastic! Everyone commented on how amazing our DJ was and we completely agree.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Michael! He really took the time to get to know us and tell our story. He and his wife were a great team to coordinate the wedding day, and everything went smoothly. He really took to heart how we wanted our big day to be and the vibe we wanted at our reception. We chose to also do the uplighting with our package, which helped set the tone for our venue. In addition, he was able to navigate some difficult family relationships, and he handled it exactly how we asked him to. They might be a little more of an expensive option, but with everything they bring to the table, it is well worth the money! Michael wasn’t just our DJ - he was our wedding coordinator as well. We can’t thank him and his wife enough for making our day extra special!
My husband and I were married on October 7, 2017. Hiring PatrickMichael Weddings for our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding; the DJ services were great (Michael did a wonderful job at reading the crowd and getting people on their feet), but it was their services beyond the music that made them so spectacular. They planned the entire day for us; they worked with our venue, as well as our other vendors, to create a day-of timeline to keep everyone on schedule. They also coordinated the rehearsal and the ceremony- it was like having a DJ and a DOC all in one! The best part about PatrickMichael Weddings is that they work diligently to make your wedding day personalized and unique to you. Patrick and Michael met with us several times before our wedding to help us plan, and for two of those meetings the drove two hours away from home to meet us in the college town where we were living. They want nothing more than to make the wedding planning process for their clients easy and enjoyable, and will go out of their way to make that happen. I would choose PatrickMichael Weddings again and again. Our wedding day went by flawlessly thanks to them and our team of vendors. Thank you guys for everything!
We did not use a wedding planner and Michael was one of the first wedding services we decided on during the pre-planning. Michael is confident, he shows up to meetings on time, and always looks professional. Michael met with us numerous times prior to the actual wedding day to help with planning and to put our minds at ease with all the decisions we needed to make. Michael always showed up prepared and never hesitated to take a phone call or respond to a message in between meetings. Michael was a huge help in planning and making our special day go smoothly. He even took the time to set up accent lighting for my wife (in the actual venue) weeks prior to the wedding so she could decide on a hue she loved. There were many special touches that Michael added to the reception in a classy but fun way to make our day exceptional and unique. He will take the time to get to know you and tailor the experience to fit your personality. I really enjoyed working with you Michael, we had so many great compliments about you, your performance, and the wonderful wedding experience you helped create. If anyone is looking for a wedding MC/DJ they should look no further, at least meet with Michael and see what a pleasure he is to work with.
PatrickMichael Weddings made our wedding incredible! Michael was our DJ and went above and beyond to make the most important day of our lives unforgettable. We've been married for a month now and still get compliments on the entertainment!! The Love Story Michael put together for us was truly special and something we will always remember. Having the DJ be one of your favorite parts of your wedding day says a lot! If we could give more than 5 stars, we would. If you want your wedding entertainment to be spot on and personalized, hire these wonderful men! We are so happy we did!
If you do not book PatrickMichael Weddings, you will be missing out! They were recommended to me by a coworker after her wedding and after meeting with Michael I knew we had found our DJ & *BONUS* Wedding coordinator! He will meet/talk/respond to you ASAP whenever you have questions and were so great with giving me advice and helping me plan my ceremony AND reception! Michael is an EXPERT! We still get compliments on how fun and personal our wedding was! 5 STARS ALL THE WAY! Thank you Michael for a perfect wedding day!
WOW! Patrick and Michael are amazing both professionally and personally. They helped make our wedding day absolutely perfect and seamless. Patrick and Michael listened to our requests and needs and delivered 110%. They are like family now and we are blessed to know them!
Robin, it was truly a pleasure working with you and Jeremy. Couples like you are why we have the best job in the world. Thank you for everything!
They are more than a DJ. Michael helped coordinate everything at the wedding and reception. He made the day worry free and everything enjoyable. Our guests repeatedly complimented him as well. His services cost more than a "DJ", but he does much more.
PatrickMichael Weddings was absolutely phenomenal to work with, and we are so happy we chose them. They didn't just take song requests and information about our wedding party...they made a real effort to get to know us, our story, our personalities, and what we really wanted out of our whole wedding experience. Of all the vendors that we had chosen for our wedding, PatrickMichael was the one that we worried the least about, because we knew that they would pursue excellence in the job they had to do and commit to everything they promised. I don't see PatrickMichael as just a DJ, they are a Ceremony DJ, Reception DJ, Emcee, reception planning consultant, and also just a mind with years and years of wedding experience to lean upon so that they could give us feedback about what has historically worked and more importantly what has NOT worked in their years past. We recieved many compliments after our wedding about how guests had so much fun and were so entertained during the reception, and that is all thanks to the phenomenal job by PatrickMichael weddings.
We absolutely enjoyed having Patrick and Michael at our wedding. They did a beautiful job helping us to make our wedding personal, intimate and most of all fun! The love story, bridal party introductions, and music made all of our guests feel engaged . I would highly recommend using them if you want someone who plays more than just music, but involves guests and makes an event flow seamlessly.
Thank you Lili and Matt. It was a pleasure and honor to celebrate with everyone on your wedding day.
Michael was absolutely amazing on the most important day of our lives. From the day we met he was in the same page with us. We had a "complicated" wedding, since I am from Chile and my husband is from Laos. He had to announce people with difficult to pronounce names, and had to deal with music requests that he was definitely going to be unfamiliar with. He took the time to make sure he pronounced the names correctly and was very open to the songs suggestions. He was very involved and made sure that the energy in the room was exactly what we had agreed on. He kept the dance floor full all night and went with the flow with our guests. Everyone enjoyed the party, and most importantly, he created a party the way we wanted it. It was obvious that Michael cared about us enjoying our day from the day we met. I didn't doubt for a second that he was going to make his best effort to make our day the party of our dreams. Out of all the stress that is involved in planning a wedding, Michael was one of the few things I never had to worry about.
Michael was a crucial part of our wedding day! You can tell he LOVES his work and isn't just working for a paycheck. He was organized, punctual, creative, and genuine. It is easy to hire a just any "wedding DJ" but Michael is far more than that. He will even help direct the day if you wish and provided me with a detailed itinerary for my day. You could tell he had rehearsed my day and was prepared. The equipment he uses is top notch and there wasn't a glitch in my ceremony or reception. I can't speak highly enough of Michael. If you are looking for someone to be a part of your wedding you would be crazy not to elect to use patrickmichaelweddings.com - as your first and only choice. I am still receiving compliments :) and everyone had a fantastic night!!
Thank you and we would chose you again and again!! I hope to have another event with you in the future.

8.14.16 was an amazing day because of Michael! The amount of work Patrick Michael Weddings put into our special day was above and beyond! Michael excels in his communication skills, professionalism, and definitely sense of humor. Michael will be there for you WHENEVER. I mean it...We had someone who was unprepared in our wedding party & Michael took control and got everything figured out at MIDNIGHT the night before our wedding. This was not part of the plan or part of his job, yet he did this with ZERO hesitation. He was attentive from the 1st meeting to the last few minutes before I walked down the aisle & during the ceremony. He was able to get my now Husband to open up & encouraged him to share some things to make our day unforgettable for ourselves and our guests. Anyone that knows my Husband knows that is no small task. Michael also DJ'd our rehearsal dinner, which was really fun for our guests. Thank you for all you do. You are truly living your passion in life!
I am beyond happy that we chose to use PatrickMichael Weddings for our big day. Patrick was so amazing and put our minds at ease. Then, for the reception, he made sure the fun did not stop. I will forever be grateful for the experience I had with this company.
What can I say about Michael and PatrickMichael Weddings that previous reviews haven't stated yet.... Working with Michael was an absolute pleasure. I'm normally a quiet person, an introvert, but Michael was able to break the walls down and really make my now wife and I very comfortable and able to open up about our love story. From the first day we met with Michael to now weeks after the wedding, he as been professional, easy to contact and gave the best experience to our wedding guests. Our wedding was a couple of weeks ago and we are still getting calls and texts about how great the DJ was and people want to get his contact information. The experience Michael provided is unforgettable and I would recommend him to anyone I meet. Regardless if you have a low or high budget the experience you will receive with Michael Durham of PatrickMichael Weddings is priceless. Definitely worth every penny and then some!
After our wedding we, well as our parents,
received many comments, texts and calls about how much fun our wedding was! Much of that we can attribute to Michael and PatrickMichael Weddings! They made everything flow and kept us all organized! Caleb and I both are not ones to be public about our feelings and affection for each other but Michael presented it in such a way that we were comfortable. He made sure no detail was left untouched and did his job to the best of his ability to make our day special! He truly is the best in the business!
Michael was the BEST! He truly loves his job! We wanted someone to do more than play music. We wanted someone to engage our guests and get them involved without telling them to do stuff. We wanted someone to capture our day and make everyone in the room feel loved and wanted and to share in the joy we feel for each other. When we hired Michael, we knew he would do an amazing job, BUT..... he more than exceeded our expectations! He took the time to get to know us and our story. He memorized information. He was present in the room, but let the celebration be the center of the excitement. He weaved our recordings into a song for our grandparents and our parents and captured our feelings without us being a teary mess on our big day. Every single guest that was present cried happy tears and each one told us how much they truly enjoyed our wedding, most saying it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. Thanks to Michael, our wedding day will not soon be forgotten by anyone present! We wanted everyone to leave the reception feeling loved. Michael helped us capture that. Many people who said they had to leave early ended up staying til the end. We ended up having an early ending to our ceremony and Michael didn't stress.... he just went with the flow and had every other vendor on board and none of our guests missed a beat. For any future gathering of family, we are going to have Michael join us again! I cannot say enough how grateful we are that we hired him! He is extremely talented and made everything more perfect than even the two of us perfectionists could imagine! Thank you so much Michael! smile emoticon
When I first met Michael at a bridal show, I had no idea what a treat we were in for!
Michael is a dream come true. He picked up on my introverted personality right away and did everything he could to make me feel comfortable with putting our wedding in his hands. He listened when I said I don’t want to make a bunch of decisions, and he let me trust him to make the wedding beautiful, and more importantly, organized!
When the day of the wedding came, he was at the venue long before I was! I forgot he was even there until the time came to begin walking down the aisle, and he retrieved my father and I from the bridal suite. The processional was 100%, without a doubt, exactly as I had imagined it in my head.
Michael was able to take the information we’d given him about our attendants and transformed it into the party that began our reception. The atmosphere was amazing; several guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. I believe a huge part of that was Michael…he took everything we had and made it better. You will not regret hiring PatrickMichael Wedding Entertainment! It’s the best thing we did!
All that I can say is that PatrickMichael DJ created a wedding that was a blast!! They have great ideas and work hard to give you the wedding of your dreams!!! The personalization they bring to the table can't be matched!
Planning a wedding is stressful! It's okay to say it because it's true. The best way to relieve some of that stress is by choosing PatrickMichael weddings as your master of ceremonies. I never called Michael my wedding DJ because he was so much more than that. I wanted it to be expressed to everyone I talked to that he was not just going to be playing music all night. He did not prove me wrong at our wedding. The attention to detail, passion for love and marriage, and enthusiasm were some of my favorite characteristics of Michael when we chose him and throughout our lucky time of getting to work with him, those values never subsided. Even into our wedding day, he had the mic but the whole night was spent uplifting our love for each other and the story of Mark and Jazmine. Even the surprises that he planned especially for us, portrayed our personalities so well. Our family still talks so highly of Michael and his talents from our wedding! Michael has so many more titles in one night besides the DJ, such as, coordinator, stress reliever, surprise planner, but my favorite of all, friend. I cannot call any other vendors from my wedding friend as confidently as I can when talking about Michael. All of our confidence was in him and he did not let us down, and I can speak even more confidently after the wedding to say, he lets no brides and grooms down!
At first we didn’t know where to start when looking for a DJ/Master of Ceremonies for our wedding. After a simple internet search we called several of the top names in Knoxville. Patrick and Michael agreed to meet with us for a face-to-face (something not all were willing to do). We asked many questions and wanted to make sure we weren’t just entrusting anyone with our special day. After about an hour it was an easy decision to choose Michael for our wedding. Two words--professionalism and passion. Michael is truly a professional. He took the time to get to know us and plan the wedding that WE wanted. He is also extremely passionate about what he does and it shows. His smile and energy created a warm, pleasant atmosphere for us and our guests. Don’t be tempted by low prices from other competitors. The difference is night and day and you will see that when you meet with them. We’re so glad we did!
