If only I could give more than 5 stars! DJ Erik Joseph was AMAZING! He not only played what we asked for, but he also had great ideas of his own which we used during the ceremony and reception. He was so professional and never tried to be the entertainment by bringing the attention to himself, but only by playing great music.
He did something we, nor any of our guests, had seen before to get all the guests out of their seats and dancing to the very first song – I don’t want to give away his secret, but it was ingenious! I don’t think anyone sat down after that. He was able to keep (young and not so young) guests on the dance floor the entire night. He never really stopped the music. Each song blended into the next and the variety was incredible, but at the same time appealed to everyone.
My husband and I were toying with the idea of combining two songs for our first dance because we loved them both and we told Erik about the idea, which he was all for. Because we weren’t sure how we would dance to them both so we ended up going with just one. Erik surprised us at the end of the night by playing the second song as our ‘last dance’, with all our guests gathered around the dance floor. It was almost more special than our first dance. Now we feel like we have two songs instead of just one.
We received so many compliments about the wedding, but more than any other aspect (food, venue, etc.), we received the most compliments about Erik. One of my bridesmaids told me about a conversation she had with her fiancé about why they had so much more fun at our wedding over any other they had been to. And she said it was because of the DJ. The DJ really makes or breaks a wedding, and DJ Erik made our wedding!
