Finding a DJ was the most important and most daunting task for me when it came to planning my wedding. Not only am I obsessed with music, but the energy of the DJ sets the entire tone for the wedding and whether or not your guests enjoy themselves, which was my top priority! Sounds Abound had the right package for the right price, and my husband and I were so happy with what was included (uplighting, full dj services from 4-11pm, plus two hours of setup time, picking your own DJ, etc.) But then the hard part came: picking which DJ was right for us. I am an Egyptian-American and my guest list was very eclectic, as was my music taste. Tony Ho instantly impressed us with his charisma, his energy, and his infectious smile. His experience with multicultural weddings sealed the deal for me. I started planning 18 months in advance, and Tony was incredibly patient and responsive through the entire process. He worked flawlessly with our other vendors and had even worked with my photographer and venue several times before. He coordinated perfectly with our belly dancers, and gave them a great introduction! My husband and I liked Tony more and more with each meeting, text message, and email. He was so friendly and accommodating and he made me feel like he genuinely cared about making our wedding special and exactly the way we envisioned it. I literally gave Tony a color-coded spreadsheet with music for every second of the day, complete with plenty of notes and special requests. Never once did Tony express annoyance or frustration with my frequent changes and concerns, and he made me feel so comfortable reaching out to him with anything I needed. Tony even made some fun suggestions for our quirky ceremony that truly made it unforgettable, and our guests are still talking about it. Working with Tony was like working with a long time friend, and I will forever be grateful for how much he invested in making our wedding perfect for us. The dance floor was never empty, and a smile never left my face! He even snapped some great photos that he sent us right away! Do yourself a favor and get Tony for your wedding, you’ll thank me later!
