Best DJ ever!! He made the reception go so smoothly. He knew exactly what songs to play and when to play them. Black tie comes early and sets up and is extremely professional! Also knows how to make the event completely worry free!

Black Tie Entertainment was wonderful to work with and made my wedding day stress-free by expertly running the reception. Tim was especially helpful before the wedding and was always very responsive to questions. He also has an eye for details and often thought of things I never had. Overall he was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend Black Tie Entertainment to anyone!

Tim was very professional and accommodating. He helped to ensure our event ran smoothly; calling off table numbers, switching song orders, and so much more. My family, friends, and the groom and I enjoyed the music all night long! Plus it was an added bonus that he took beautiful pictures of the venue and guests at the wedding. I would highly recommend Black Tie. Thanks again!

Tim was the definition of professional. He is easy to reach and responds to all communication in a timely manner. He is very detail oriented and organized during the planning process and on the day of the event. He provided superb service the day of our reception he helped us stay on our timeline. We had most of the guests on the dance floor all night and received several compliments on the DJ from family and friends.

I couldn't have asked for a better or more professional DJ than Tim at Black Tie Entertainment! A friend told me about Black Tie Entertainment and I didn't really know what to expect when I first met with Tim as it was my first meeting with a DJ. About 10 minutes into the 90 minute meeting, I realized Tim was the DJ that we were looking for!

I am a control freak and it was hard for me not to be in control of every minute of the day. However, I realized during the process of making all the wedding plans, there was no way I could control everything. Tim was great. He was never pushy and guided us through the reception. He made sure that the events at the reception flowed smoothly. I didn't have to worry about where to be and when to be there in terms of the wedding party be announced, the cake cutting (he coordinated with our photographer to make sure he was ready too), the toasts, the Love Story (amazing!), the first dance and so on! Tim was perfect and my husband and I were so pleased at how well the entire night played out.

The Love Story was something we paid a little extra for but was SOOOOO worth it. After a few meetings with Tim, he crafted a love story about Mark and I. He based the love story on my husband and my relationship and our journey up to our wedding day. It was funny, sweet, touching, and beautiful. It made me laugh and cry happy tears! He kept the Love Story a secret from everyone until he read it to us and our guests just before our first dance. We received so many compliments on the Love Story as well as how wonderful our DJ was. He and his wife, Robin, made our reception a true success!

I planned and planned my wedding and it could not have been any better. Tim was a big part of the success of an amazing wedding reception. Thank you Tim! I would hire Tim again for any event in which I needed a DJ. He is a true professional and a master at DJing!

I just wanted to take a minute to express how grateful we were to have found Black Tie Entertainment to dj our wedding. Tim was great to work with. We never had to worry as he made sure everything ran smoothly. He was everything we could have asked for a dj and more. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a dj.

Black Tie Entertainment did a great job at our wedding reception. Their experience and expertise allows them to capture the guest and get them on the dance floor. They played a variety of music that would please everyone. Tim did a great job of keeping a good flow to the wedding events (cake cutting, tossing the bouquet, and garter removal, etc.) Black Tie also provided up-lighting in the ballroom for the reception. It was beautiful! They did a great job of enhancing the room! Once the reception started, I knew I was in good hands. I was able to be in the moment of our wedding reception and enjoy my time with family and friends. Thank you Tim and Robin for a fantastic wedding reception!

We were so happy that we decided to go with Black Tie Entertainment as our wedding DJ. Everything was perfect! Black Tie made it very easy to plan from the start with their online wedding planning tools and in person planning and final meetings. They are extremely professional and ask for your opinion on what attire they should wear for the evening. We used Black Tie's uplighting and were extremely pleased with the results. As for the reception, the music selection was awesome...we always had a full dance floor. One of the biggest tasks was how Tim kept the evening flowing nicely. He was basically in charge of keeping on the timeline with speeches, first dances, slideshows, announcing dessert, etc. Tim is very upbeat and made the evening so fun. After the wedding, it was a surprise to see Tim and his wife had taken 30 pictures from our wedding and already had them posted within days of the wedding. It was so fun to see the candid shots right away since the professional photos would not be done for another couple of months. All in all, Black Tie was superb from the planning stages all the way until days after the wedding. I would highly recommend using them for your event!

I cannot say enough about the high level of service provided by Black Tie Entertainment. Tim goes above and beyond. He was sensitive to our needs/wants but also provided input based on his years of valuable experience. When asked, he was also able to provide recommendations regarding other aspects of our wedding. Tim was not simply our DJ. In addition to music, he was responsible for every detail related to the timing of our reception so we didn't have to worry about anything. He also coached us prior to the big day on what to expect and how best to prepare for it (suggesting for example that we avoid watching the weather the week prior because there isn't anything you can do to change it anyway -- great advice!). Our guests had a great time and have been very complimentary of the service provided by Tim and his wife, Robin. Several guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the music and the opportunity to converse with other guests at the same time (something you can't always do at receptions but something Tim assured us he could make happen). The tools Black Tie Entertainment has available on its website making planning a breeze. Black Tie Entertainment is worth every penny! I also highly recommend couples splurge a bit for Tim to write/read their Love Story...priceless!!!

I really enjoyed working with Black Tie Entertainment. The professionalism made me relax during our first and last meeting. Speaking with Tim made me also feel more comfortable about the flow of the reception. He was very helpful with any questions we had and made changes even up until the day before the wedding. The reception was flawless due to his planning and timing. All the guests had a great time on the dance floor!

Tim at Black Tie was fantastic! The dance floor was full from beginning to end. He played a variety of songs that appealed to everyone. I had been at weddings where the DJ was more like a carnival barker, but Tim does a fabulous job! Can't wait to use him at our 2nd daughter's wedding...in 14 months!

Tim was wonderful to work with. He helped make our wedding day run seamless, which was a HUGE relief for me and my husband. We wanted someone that would run the day for us so we could just sit back and enjoy it - stress free. In addition to that, Tim did an excellent job reading our guests and the party and he kept it going until the very end. I would definitely recommend Tim and Black Tie Entertainment for any bride!
