So, this has been a long time coming (my wife and I had our wedding in August) but I have been busy starting a new job, and buying and moving into a new house. No more excuses though.
Chris and his crew (but especially Chris) provided the attention, care, and special treatment that we didn’t necessarily expect throughout planning our wedding, but received. While we had some bumps in the road working with our caterer and event planners, absolutely none of that existed from Chris and Unforgettable DJ’s.
The music was very important to me for the wedding, and I spent some considerable time researching DJ companies to work with. Unforgettable DJ’s website had me interested from the get go. It portrayed a company that preferred a more personalized experience rather than the cookie cutter experience DJ companies in this area are prevalent with. We didn’t want a singing, dancing corny DJ that sang over the music, was obnoxious, and was more concerned with doing the electric slide and getting Grandma to dance. We wanted somebody who understood us as a couple, played music we would like, and utilized the event space in the best way for lighting and such.
From my initial 40 minute phone call going over my wedding and some questions I had, I could tell Chris was my dude. He just “got it”. He wasn’t a fake, gimmicky, salesman. He was genuine, down to earth, and again portrayed that personal touch that his company strives for. Once my wife and I met him in person, we knew we found our DJ.
Chris was patient, informative, organized, and customized our wedding from beginning to end. He went to the venue to see it in person and make sure he understood the positioning of everything, and to give us the best service possible. Not many DJ’s would take the time to see the venue in person. Usually they look it up, or figure it’s “just like everywhere else” and bring the speakers and lights and wing on it the day of. Not Chris. Not Unforgettable DJ’s. This is the personalized service I keep speaking of, and that every company should strive for.
Once we got closer to the wedding, Chris and his team sat with us for what must have been 3 hours going over music, lighting, and the final touches on our important day. My wife and I walked away from that meeting feeling more confident in Chris and his company than almost any other aspect of our wedding.
On the day of the wedding, even while my wife was getting ready with her bridesmaids, he played some of her favorite music in the background while he was setting up. From the beginning, to the end, he made our day as customized, specialized, and amazing as we dreamed it would be. The music was PERFECT. EVERYONE was dancing. The lighting made our event space look like we were at a destination wedding worth millions of dollars. And then there were the little touches, like Chris walking my Grandma to her seat. Or handling almost every single request. Or his constant comments to my wife and I about how nice and unique our wedding was and how he genuinely enjoyed being there. It all mattered.
I can’t recommend them enough. If you’re looking for a DJ and company that care about YOU, and treat you like the unique couple you are, this is it. They aren’t rated this well for no reason.
Here’s to many more weddings, and all the success in the world you deserve, Chris! Cheers!
