The Best Experience

Our very first consultation was quick and painless! We locked in the strings & DJ portion very early on in our planning. The website was very user friendly and it made the process that much easier. We ... Read more had a special requirement for the DJ to start a little earlier than planned and half of our playlist was in Russian. Dream City Music accommodated all of our requests with no problems and at no extra charge. The string duo played beautifully and even moved from the ceremony room to the reception room for our guests' cocktail hour with ease. Jared, the DJ, was the best DJ we have ever met. We do not reside in the Milwaukee area but that never put a strain on our communication. We had a last minute change of line up during our speeches and dances which Jared handled with grace. While we expected Jared to take requests, we were amazed at how far he was willing to go to cheer up my five year old brother when a balloon popped in his face. I've never known a DJ to have Jurassic World Theme queued up but Jared really saved the night! He even took some photos and videos after our photographer left! He was very warm and interactive with all of our guests; he felt more like a friend than a vendor. I'm so pleased we went with Dream City Music, our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them!
