We just got married on 12/13/14. When we chose the date, our venue suggested we book vendors ASAP. I did a lot of research to find my dj and wanted to make sure they were local to Naperville. I met with about five companies and the first four did not leave a good impression. When we met with Kyle Overbey at Sounds Abound (about a year out from the wedding), we knew we had to lock him in. He was laid-back but knew so much about music. We seemed to understand each other well. I told him we’d likely not put many limitations on what could be played/could not be played. Fast forward to three weeks before the wedding and we met with Kyle again. He had amazing recommendations for bridal party songs, and our last song. They weren’t run of the mill songs and I appreciated that he took the time to get to know us to decide what songs would work. We felt more than confident he would do a great job.
On the day of the wedding, my dad had a few surprises that he worked with Kyle on including a Frank Sinatra cover singer and a little video presentation. Kyle was ready to pump music into the cocktail hour just in case the sinatra singer bombed (thankfully all went well). Kyle had a difficult job at our wedding because he was getting requests all over the board, including a few that I put on the “do not play” list. He was kind to the guests and when my dad insisted on a song from the do not play list, Kyle came to talk to me about it and always used his best judgment. Overall, there is no way I would choose another company. Our 24×24 dance floor was PACKED from open to close. Kyle was simply the best.
We also booked Sounds Abound for the photo booth. It’s a must have! They do a great job putting together the scrapbook, which is a forever keepsake. Lastly we used Sounds Abound for uplighting. I found out after the fact that the original color we selected didn’t look right with our colors, but Sounds Abound worked with my wedding team to come to a quick decision and it was gorgeous.
Thanks Kyle and Sounds Abound!!!!!
