Bel-Aire Music Productions was suggested by our photographer, who has worked with him in the past. We are so glad that we decided on having a DJ for our wedding. Rick was fantastic! From the first consultation, he was so organized and helpful. I'm a bride who has to be organized, and I loved how he sent out a booklet where every song we'd need for the wedding could be written down. It was nice to know that nothing could be forgotten. Our wedding day went off without a hitch. He took care of the ceremony music, as well as the reception. We got so many compliments about the music and how nice it was to have such a mix of styles. He made sure that everything went smoothly, and was accommodating to requests, which was nice. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our wedding!

We hired bellaire music productions for our wedding on a recommendation from a friend. His professionalism and planning was top notch. We had three face to face meetings with DJ Rick before the wedding and exchanged multiple emails along the way, he was totally professional. helpful and very quick to respond each time. We liked that he interacted with the other vendors we had (photographer/videographer and JP) before and during our wedding and he worked with the wait staff and wedding planner keeping everything running smooth.

Five hours went by so fast and we didn't worry about anything. The music was never loud during the dinner and he kept our dance floor going during the reception and played songs we had requested, plus songs our guests were requesting throughout the night. We gave him a handful of songs to play and not to play and he used his experience and read the crowd perfectly.

His price was right within our tight budget and he exceeded our expectations and will recommend him to friends and family

I was referred to DJ Rick from another vendor of mine (photographer) and upon meeting with Rick just one time, was instantly impressed with his services! In just one meeting, we connected with Rick in a way that made us very comfortable. He was very detailed in what he had to offer along with a personalized wedding planner book that outlined everything needed to have a perfect wedding! Upon arriving home from our meeting, we know we didnt need to look any further! Over my couple year long engagement, Rick kept in contact with us unlike any of our other vendors. When it came time to really start choosing songs, his booklet was super helpful. It outlined everything and had lists upon lists of songs to choose for every category. Without this, I wouldn't have ever thought to have special songs for special moments. Any time I had a question or needed any suggestions at all, Rick was always there with an answer almost immediately if not at least within the same day. Rick takes 110% pride in the work he does and it definitely shows throughout the whole planning process. The itinerary I received a few weeks before the wedding was helpful to me to set straight all of my other vendors. It is one thing I referred to whenever I needed to plan the day of. The day of my wedding, I knew I had nothing to worry about with Rick in control of everything. I arrived at the venue early, and there Rick was with a smile on his face asking if there was anything I needed. Throughout the wedding, everything flowed beyond amazing! He made suggestions here and there to make the night the best it could be. During some downtime, Rick suggested with take some pictures outside with the sun setting, and I am so thankful for the suggestion as the pictures came out more amazing than I could have imagined. The music he played was amazing and I received many compliments with how great the night was! By the end of it, my legs were like jello and I needed my knee brace! He was AMAZING!

We just had a wonderful wedding celebration in Peabody, MA at the Smith Barn and I never write reviews. I can't tell you how amazing DJ Rick Bellanti was to work with, he was one of the main reasons our day went so perfectly.

The level of service you get with him is top notch and one of those vendors you feel like you've underpaid. He provides you with all that you need to make your dancing / DJ reception needs custom just for you. Pre-meetings, a huge list of song ideas, a planning booklet, an outline on timing, microphone/ background music for anyone also planning to sing (which I had two people and he accomodated them with exactly what they needed). You don't realize how much goes into all the planning down to every vendor and I am so thankful and grateful that Rob and I went with DJ Rick Bellanti.

If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding reception or any big party in New England --- you want him, trust me!

Thanks Rick for aiding in making our day so perfect!
Love,
Marisa & Rob Wilich

DJ Ricky B was the BEST! I am what you may call an over planner, and when I had read and heard of the work Rick did, I was immediately impressed. When he discussed his planning book with us, I was even more impressed, and after the wedding is now over, we are still just blown away by the service he provided. Rick was always available to answer a question or concern, and his attention to detail was so striking. I had every email answered almost immediately. The planning book he gave us was so helpful I can’t even begin to describe how much at ease he put us. Our venue originally warned us, be sure to pick a good DJ, they can make or break an event, and wow were they right! DJ Rick had me dancing all night, and I do not normally dance at all. I had so much fun it didn’t matter if I had ‘the moves’ he kept us smiling and laughing all night long. It’s like he knew exactly how I was feeling too, because just when I was out of breath and ready for a break, a slow song was there! My husband and I were not the only ones who danced our hearts out, every family member and friend I have spoken with said how sore their feet were the next day because they did the same! The personality, energy and efficiency he helped bring to our wedding was invaluable! Thank you so SOO much DJ Rick, I will never forget how much fun you helped us all have; it was the best day of my life!

Finding a DJ was the second hardest thing for us to do in the wedding planning process. My husband and I had no idea where to begin and were working on a very limited budget so we began the exhausting hunt to find someone we felt comfortable with AND could afford by going google crazy. We interviewed 3 DJs in total and when we left our meeting with Rick my husband already knew who I was going to pick even know I had one more interview setup after him. His organization and thoroughness is second to none and with my quirky personality it was a must.

Upon our first meeting Rick was very calming and supportive of our million questions. His detailed planning book is so well thought out, was fun to fill out, and made things sooo much easier. We met again a few weeks before the wedding at which point I was in a full out panic over our to-do list but he again was calming and walked us through it all.

He provided the music at our ceremony and reception as well as kept us on time. He made it so easy to transition from one thing to the next without feeling rushed or under the gun. He played everything we requested, a fantastic mix of music that appealed to all the age groups, and played what we put on the "do not play list" only after the best man begged and begged and he gently asked our permission at an opportune time (yes, I'm anti- chicken dance).

Rick is amazing at what he does and really made the night with his great mix of music, lighting and personality. I highly recommend him!!!!

Rick gave us a booklet to fill out that made planning the music for our wedding day very easy. The day of the wedding, Rick did a great job making our music/dancing go smoothly/seamlessly.

Rick was great to work with! He really listened to our taste in music and even found some obscure songs that we wanted to play during our ceremony. Although we had a small guest list, he was able to get people up and dancing. He was very easy to get in contact with and always got back to me quickly when I had any questions. He provides a very easy to follow booklet that lays everything out and helps you to stay organized with the events of the day. He also gave us a CD at the end of the night that had all of our ceremony and specific wedding songs on it. Highly recommended! -L&K
