Black Tie Events, and Derek in particular, were the most put together and easy vendor services at our wedding. With very little direction he made our wedding amazing, paying attention to our personalities, our crowds, and even added his own personal flair. He was on time, professional, well prepared and so friendly to all of our guests- all huge during the craziness of a large wedding. Our officiant, who is getting married later this year cursed himself for having out down a deposit for a DJ other than Derek after seeing him at work.

To say that Derek and Black Tie DJs exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Throughout every step of the process, they were absolutely fantastic- Derek, our DJ, played a huge role in helping us plan the flow of our evening and pick great music, and every one of his suggestions was perfect. As far as the event itself goes, I never before believed people when they talked about the importance of the DJ, but seriously- it was critical!!! Derek did sound for our ceremony, which was flawless, and we basically had him pick our dancing music, and it was quite a party. I have never seen so many people dancing at a wedding, and everyone commented on how amazing he was. He was also incredibly professional, kind, and easy to work with. Hiring Black Tie DJs is an easy decision, and it was well worth every penny!!

Deon was our D.J & he was AMAZING. He was very thorough with paying attention to the details that we wanted and hit the nail on the head perfectly! We could not have asked for a more professional person to DJ our wedding. He played everything we asked, had a great energy, was incredibly personable and everyone at our wedding had glowing reviews about the music and the the DJ himself. He kept in touch before the wedding, was attentive during the wedding, and has been kind and attentive even after the wedding. His musical knowledgable and ability to grasp our musical taste was impressive. He made sure to cater to everyone at our event and provide us with everything we were looking for. The sound system was incredible as well. I wouldn't have changed a thing! Deon is an impressive DJ & man and I would recommend him to anyone!!!!!

Derek was amazing in all aspects of our process. He was helpful and responsive during the planning process down to last minute song selections and changes! He definitely went above and beyond his duties as DJ to make our wedding one to be remembered. Friends of mine had recommended him from their wedding and his personalized attention and care exceeded my expectations. Look no further :)

Black Tie Entertainment was a pleasure to work with from start to finish! During our first meeting with Julio (aka DJ Falcon) my (now) husband and I felt at ease and were so excited to work with such a knowledgeable and helpful entertainer. He gave us advice and ideas when we needed but followed our lead when we had strong opinions about the playlists for each part of our day. We had phone conferences, email chats and in-person meetings several times over the course of planning and each time we walked away even more excited about our special day and how awesome our music was going to be. On our wedding day, Julio did not disappoint! He arrived at our venue early, set up all his equipment and as the day went on had everyone pumped and excited to celebrate with us. Our friends and family are still talking about how great the music, lights and DJ were during our reception. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Thank you for everything!

Hiring a quality dj for my wedding was in my top 3 priority list. From the second I spoke to Dave on the phone, I knew they were the perfect choice. Dave spent a considerable amount of time educating me on their services. He was not pushy, never once tried to up sell me and I knew I could trust him with the planning of my special day. Bob was my dj and we spoke several times prior to the wedding to ensure all plans were set. He also provided me with valuable input on the timing of formal dances, toasts, etc. On the day of, he helped make the ceremony and reception seamless. The dance floor was packed allllll night. The guests all raved about our dj. I cannot recommend this group enough. A class act all around!!

Brad was the DJ assigned for our wedding and he was great! He was attentive to all our needs and coordinated everything perfectly ahead of time with us and during the ceremony and reception. He even went so far as to meet us at the venue ahead of our wedding to ensure all logistics were handled. He made sure all guests were in the reception area during our special dances and made sure everyone was up on the dance floor the whole night!

Our DJ really went out of his way to make sure we had a great dance party at our reception. We worked with Julio Falcon, and he went above and beyond. Not only is he really personable and friendly, but he's just so accommodating and made sure that we got what we asked for, plus more. We wanted a DJ with a latin flair, and he has it. He interacted with the crowd, followed our dos and don'ts requests, and helped get us back on track when we were falling a bit behind schedule. We received excellent service from Black Tie, and would recommend to anyone.

Our DJ with Black Tie Events was Julio and he was excellent! Our first meeting he had my Mom and I laughing and really enjoying his company and instantly I knew he would and could make any crowd dance. He was also extremely flexible as my groom and I changed our first dance song the day of our wedding and all I had to do was text him and let him know and he responded instantly. Hire Black Tie Events, you will not be disappointed and neither will your guests!

Wyatt was the DJ for our wedding in September and he was excellent! During the planning phase he offered a lot of suggestions and did a great job of figuring out our style and what would work well for our reception. We knew we could trust him to do a great job after our first meeting. He was very responsive to our needs leading up to the wedding day. During the ceremony he did an excellent job keeping the timeline on track, reading the crowd, and adjusting things when needed. He kept things very professional and classy which is exactly what we wanted. I am extremely satisfied with our experience with BlackTie DJ's and would use them again.

Black Tie Entertainment has exceeded my expectations. The planning software was easy to use, well organized, and gave me constant reminders of how close my wedding was. My DJ responded to any questions I had within a timely manner. On the day of the event I was amazed by the song selection and the mood lighting. Black tie entertainment provided an entertaining night and had everyone dancing. I also had the photo booth at the wedding. I would recommend it as a must have, all of my family and friends took part in taking pictures. The adults more than the children. I would definitely recommend Black Tie Entertainment at any event.

Blacktie DJ's (Julio Falcon) was an amazing company to work with. They were on the ball with everything and their music selection was great. When we needed music that he didn't have, he downloaded it for us with no problems. He was able to go with changes on the fly at the ceremony that we added at the last minute and was great to work with. The music flow was perfect and all the guests were able to dance. His announcements were clear and the equipment was up to date and didn't use up much space.

My husband and I chose Black Tie Entertainment as our Wedding Reception DJ and we could not have been more pleased with the entire process. From the very beginning, the staff was incredibly professional and helpful. The online tools made payments and planning such a breeze. We were able to select songs that we wanted to have played during the reception and at certain times of the event too. Derek was our DJ and was absolutely fantastic. We met with him prior to the event and he was very helpful throughout the entire process. He and his assistant kept our guests dancing the whole night! It was such a blast! I highly recommend Black Tie Entertainment to any bride and groom that would want to have an extraordinary experience. If we could, we would have given Derek 10 stars!!

At first, we weren't so sure whether or not we wanted a really "dance-y" wedding. Also, the idea of a DJ made me nervous, since the stereotype of cheesy DJs are so pervasive. However, once we were able to meet with Matt, he made all of my fears go away! And on our wedding night, he was professional when he had to speak, and had everyone dancing the night away after dinner. My biggest compliment for Matt was that I had made a bunch of special requests for songs (processional, first dance, etc.) that weren't already on their available song choice list. We were told not to worry, that we would get exactly what we wanted, and we did! I was elated and that really cemented my feeling that we had made a great choice of companies.

We used Black Tie Entertainment for our wedding in August 2014, and we couldn't have been happier. Black Tie chooses your DJ based on your musical preferences and how much interaction you want him/her to have with the crowd. Our DJ (Eddy Bobby) was perfect for our tastes, and we've gotten many compliments about how the music was the best they'd ever heard at a wedding. I'd strongly recommend Black Tie to anyone looking for good wedding music.

We are extremely happy that we booked Wyatt Hill and Black Tie DJ for our wedding. One of the best decisions we made when planning our event!

From our first meeting, Wyatt was so professional and knowledgeable; you could tell that he is at the top of his game. He was early, organized and had a great strategy for maximizing the crowd on the dance floor, which is what we wanted. From our first meeting we were confident that he would do a great job and he truly exceeded our expectations.

Their online system was great and easy to update. He kept us on schedule and we spoke with him on the phone at least 3 times and had one more in-person meeting before the wedding.

He was very responsive on emails with any question I had and he had so many good ideas himself and also really wanted to get to know what we wanted for our day. He suggested a group photo, which was a great idea and even though we were hesitant, the party props were a really big hit with our crowd and I'm so glad we used them. He really knows what people will respond to!

We are also glad we used Black Tie DJs for our uplighting and the moving head lighting instead of having to coordinate with another vendor. It was so seamless.

We had sooo much fun on the dance floor, as did our guests. He worked with our hotel contact and day of coordinator and everything ran so smoothly. Wyatt was a great MC and he is a pro at keeping the energy up. We danced so much at our wedding, more than I ever expected!

Countless people said afterwards it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

I thought Wyatt was the perfect DJ and I definitely recommend him to anyone who wants a really fun reception with lots of people dancing! We will be talking about our wedding with huge smiles on our faces for years to come!!

Derek and Deon from Black Tie Entertainment did the most amazing job at our wedding from the planning process to the day of details, everything was absolutely perfect! They were the only vendors that reached out to us multiple times throughout our planning and we felt we could truly call them and trust them with anything. It was very evident the day of our wedding that they listened attentively to every detail, as everything was executed flawlessly and they truly made our reception the best party of my life! We would highly recommend both of them to anyone looking for a wedding D.J. The best part of it all is not only did they create the best environment for our wedding reception, we truly feel like we gained two new friends from this experience!

I was referred to Black Tie DJs by a friend, who recommended a specific DJ. I paid the deposit, but that DJ ended up moving. Dave (the owner) called me right away to let me know and offered to refund my deposit or change DJs. I opted to just take a different DJ and ended up with DJ Matt Johnson. We chatted on the phone several times, and he did a phenomenal job at our wedding reception. A great time was had by all! We were so pleased with the service and would use them again in a heartbeat!

At first glance, “never below five stars ratings.” Come on! That is impossible. But after going through the entire process with Black Tie Entertainment (BTE), I wish there was a possibility to give ten stars. From the beginning, BTE was prompt and professional. The initial introduction to the company was state of the art and the wide range of options when choosing the services made it possible for all price ranges. With my tight budget in mind, they were able to work with my needs. After taking the DJ personality questionnaire we were matched with Derek.
Hiring Derek was one of the best decisions we made through the entire wedding process. His personality and knowledge of the wedding/DJ business was incredible. He led us through the entire process without missing a STEP. He was quick to respond and offered wedding advice from his wide range of ceremony & reception experiences He made sure every detail was perfect from the music, to the ceremony coordination, to the pronunciation of the wedding party names and announcements. I am being completely honest when I say, Derek kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. If you went to sit down or get a drink you missed an amazing song. All our guests afterwards were raving about his abilities. I could go on for hours about how special Derek made our day, but I will end on a simple thought: You will not go wrong with selecting Black Tie Entertainment as your wedding DJ company!

Matt J., our wedding DJ was awesome. We had a very eclectic mix of music as I enjoy country and pop and my husband enjoys Latin Caribbean music. Matt was able to put together a great playlist that was a perfect mix of us. He was responsive, answered all our questions and made suggestions that really helped up to plan the timeline of our reception. The only thing I would change is that I probably would not get the monogram, as it was kind of expensive and I ended up designing it myself and the monogram was only on one wall when I was under the impression it would be on the wall and on the dance floor. Oh well. Overall, it was a great experience working with this company.

We chose Black Tie which was a mid-tier priced DJ option among those we had contacted for quotes. We definitely got value for our money. The staff were very approachable and flexible. Everyone was intent on learning about us and our vision so as to deliver the best suited DJ services. Their entire approach and website provides a really interactive but simple system for tailoring everything to how you want it, right down to "DO NOT PLAY" and "MUST PLAY" songs and even how your DJ should dress. 3 coordination meetings with our DJ, Eddy Bobby, were quick and easy. I didn't even speak to him on the day of our wedding and everything went off right on schedule, which is exactly how you want it given how busy things get. Overall, we're really happy with Eddy Bobby and the Black Tie team.

Black Tie Entertainment has been used by many of my close friends for the past 10-15 years, so I knew I would definitely use them as my wedding DJ. Our DJ, Eddy Bobby, was great! Overall, he was fun and got the crowd going! The dance floor was never empty! Eddy was very professional during the planning process, flexible when meeting to discuss details and provided a lot of fun suggestions. I had a dual ceremony which was a bit tricky in regard to music, but Eddy handled it perfectly. He also handled our lighting which was a nice feature to the already beautiful reception ballroom. Aside from being a very talented DJ, he is one of the most personable guys ever! I would highly recommend Black Tie Entertainment, and make sure to request Eddy Bobby! Thanks, Eddy!

This was a special day for us. It wasn't just a wedding or a vow renewal. This was a celebration of life as my husband almost had his taken from him in June of 2012 and fought his way back to us and to a fulfilling life. The cake and florist and other things could have been lacking, but I was so concerned about the DJ. The DJ had to be great - they are the ones to get the party going, and keep it going. Matt was great. It was a total hit. Everyone had a great time. I honestly couldn't have asked for better so thank you guys very very much!!!

I can't explain how lucky my husband and I were to have Wyatt as our DJ for our May 24 wedding! Black Tie did an amazing job from the moment I called to get a quote to assigning the best DJ for my event. Wyatt was very flexible, nice, professional, easy to work with and made sure our wedding had an amazing mix of Spanish & English music. Everyone was in the dance floor the entire night and loved the music he played.

Thank you so much for such a great job!

Black Tie Entertainment was super easy to work with. Our initial contact was with Dave and he did an excellent job of getting to know us and he matched us with our DJ, Derek Entrekin. Derek was awesome. After some emails, we spoke on Skype a couple of times leading up to the wedding as we hammered out the details. Derek showed us how knowledgeable he was and did a great job of putting us at ease. He offered us the high level of coordination that we needed for our event, while keeping a lower level of engagement--we didn't need someone over the top. We gave him some ideas of the songs we wanted to hear and he did an amazing job building a playlist off of these. Numerous guests commented on what a great job he did in choosing music--and, in response to requests from some, he sent us a copy of the playlist. People were up, they were dancing, and lots of great times were had. We would highly recommend Black Tie Entertainment for their professionalism. We would also highly recommend Derek, not only for his professionalism, but for his talent and friendliness--he made sure that the bride always had a drink in hand and he even helped one of our elderly guests walk to the bathroom. All in all, it was an amazing experience.

We LOVED working with Black Tie Entertainment! They came recommended from a friend who had them at their wedding. We worked with Dave leading up to the big day who met with us and answered all of our questions.

They also provided additional services like photo booths and uplighting which is great if you want to consolidate your vendors. They were really like a one stop shop for us. We used their DJ and uplighting services and were so pleased with both.

I really liked how organized they were. When you sign your contract, you get a username and password to their website where you can pay off your balance and request songs. There's a planning sheet they also provide where you can choose songs for specific moments during your wedding like the first dance etc.

As our wedding date approached, we met with our DJ and made sure everyone was on the same page.

We can't recommend Andrew Logan enough! He is so great to work with and really understood our style and knew exactly what songs to play to get our friends and family on the dance floor.

I also liked the security of knowing this was a DJ company that had back-up DJs in case anything were to happen. Additionally their prices are very competitive with other DJs in the area.

We will forever recommend Black Tie Entertainment and Andrew Logan to friends and family! We had such a good experience with them.

I highly recommend Black Tie Entertainment for your event! I did a lot of research on DJ services for our wedding and most are comparable but what sets them apart from the rest is the knowledge and time spent ensuring that all of your needs are met. In the process of researching DJ services, my neighbor also recommended Black Tie Entertainment as they had used them previously for an event. Dave Melton, the owner, is phenomenal when going over the logistics and it is very obvious that he knows this business inside and out. I had some issues with my venue and he was so patient with me during the time that we had to find another venue and easily switched the venue and location for us. DJ Matt was outstanding in assisting us with the flow of our day and song selections. He had some great recommendations that we chose to have as part of our day. You will not regret choosing Black Tie Entertainment to be part of your special day. Thank you Dave and Matt!

Derek met with us multiple times before the wedding to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted of our DJ and he went above and beyond to make sure he gave that to us during our special day. All of our guests said that the music was great and that Derek kept the party going.

Black tie DJs was also very professional and worked with us to make it a perfect wedding. Highly recommend for any upcoming event.

Eddy Bobby was the DJ for my daughter’s wedding recently. He was fabulous! When we had a couple of issues with power and audio at the hotel, he offered creative solutions which were outside the scope of his contract and he saved the day! He was helpful and polite and fun – more than just a DJ/emcee! The maid of honor needed to sit for her speech, so Eddy carried a chair for her, and helped her to the stage. His icebreakers were super fun, and even my mother-in-law danced around the table – unheard of! We got great pictures of all of our guests out on the dance floor, and they had a great time. We highly recommend Eddy and Black Tie DJs for your party!!

We LOVED the uplighting! Due to my grandfather passing just a few days before the wedding I wasn't in contact with my vendors like I should of been. I was reassured by the owner everything would be taken care of and they would match the color of the uplighting to our wedding colors. The pick was dead on and made our venue look amazing on our wedding night!

The photo booth we rented was a hit for our guests and everyone had a great time.

We were very impressed with the professionalism of this company from the first time we made a phone call to inquire about their services. They make it a priority to make the event how you want it and really listen to your ideas. The planning process goes smoothly with online forms and in-person meetings. We were very impressed with the DJ going around to each table at the reception asking if the music was too loud and if everything was okay. I had many guests tell me how much they really enjoyed the DJ.

I am so thankful that I decided to book with Black Tie DJs. Before the wedding even started, they were incredibly helpful. I spoke with Dave several times on the phone before I was set up with Derek, and both were extremely professional and knowledgeable. They were very good providing me with options, explaining everything thoroughly, and even giving me advice that ended up helping me in other parts of the planning process. Not once were they ever pushy with services or add-ons, which was very refreshing. Derek was truly phenomenal during the reception. Based on my few recommendations of songs and artists, he put together a playlist that could have been taken straight from my own library. He did an excellent job of appealing to both the younger and older generations in a way that made everyone happy. He really went above and beyond the day of by going around to the tables and chatting people up, taking requests, and keeping us all coordinated and on schedule. My two young nephews were there and he checked on them a few times to make sure they were comfortable with the volume level and really made sure everyone had a good time. There was even an impromptu prank that we decided to pull on the groomsmen that he eagerly accommodated and worked into our schedule, making the night that even more memorable. I had droves of people from both sides of the family gush about how much they loved the music and how they had never been to a wedding where there was so much enthusiastic dancing. I would recommend their services to absolutely anyone.

Matt was a fantastic DJ. We had guests coming up to us throughout our reception to say how great he was and how much fun they were having. Matt made planning the music portion of our reception easy; he was very helpful in providing song and timeline suggestions and was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. We couldn't have made a better choice for our DJ.

We used Black Tie back in March for our wedding and were extremely happy to have hired them. DJ Eddy Bobby made our night pop and run smoothly. Eddy and his assistant were very professional and arrived well in advance. He had a unique trick to get everyone dancing on the dance floor. We so many compliments on how good of a job he did. I have five other friends that have used Black Tie and they all had the same experience at their weddings. I highly recommend using them, you will not be disappointed.

For our wedding we were fortunate to have Derek as our MC and Deon as our DJ. WOW! Repeatedly our guests have let us know that this was the most fun wedding they have ever attended, and Derek and Deon are the ones that made that possible. We were expecting to have to encourage guests to get on the dance floor, but the music selections were so good that people started dancing during dinner! It was everything that we hoped for and more. I'm now finding myself looking for excuses to throw a party requiring their services again. Thank you Derek and Deon so much for all that you did, your flexibility, and delivering us exactly what we asked for!

Black Ties DJs was a great company to work with for our Nov 2 wedding. They were very professional and responsive. Our DJ, Eddy Bobby, was also great to work with. The microphone/sound set up for our outdoor ceremony was unobtrusive and really helped in making sure everyone could hear the ceremony (I've been to many ceremonies where I had no idea what was being said). I was also very last minute with our song list and Eddy Bobby took it all in stride, played our requested songs, checked in with us throughout the evening and made sure everyone had a great time. I would most definitely recommend Black Tie DJs and Eddy Bobby to anyone planning a wedding.

My mom and I met Dave Melton from Black Tie DJs at a bridal show case at the George Mason Patriot Center. Right away, we both had good feelings about having Black Tie DJs at our wedding! My husband and I enjoyed the planning form, and online resources provided by the company.

We met our DJ, Andrew Logan, a few weeks before our wedding. Andrew was wonderful, and came out to meet us in person to discuss our big day. He was great in noticing all of the details of our schedule of events, and payed special attention to our requests for our "must play" and "do not play" lists. He handled the announcements flawlessly and kept the dance floor full all night! No easy task with the varying ages we had at our reception, but he did.

We would definitely recommend Black Tie DJs for future events!

Black Tie DJs was well-organized and accomodating before the wedding. They made sure everything was set up correctly and that we were all on the same page. We have Wyatt as our DJ.

Wyatt was fantastic for our wedding. He checked with us before the dancing to make sure that there was nothing that we needed. He also was very flexible with the fact that we were running behind for our wedding. Also, he took requests from the guests and when there was a potential song we did not want to hear, he checked with us to make sure we would be okay with it.

Also, most importantly, he had a good understanding of the crowd. He realized that those on the dance floor did not really want slow songs and he played more up-beat songs that kept the dancing going and everyone very happy. He was fantastic.

Brad was great. I love the tool they have online to write down all the details because it really helps to make sure the DJ is on the same schedule as you are. We had two meetings with him before the wedding which he helped us plan the timeline for the reception as well as talk about the flow and atmosphere we wanted to have. I had a few songs that I 100% wanted to play and the rest was up to him. He was great and feeling out the crowd and playing songs that would keep the guests on the dance floor. Towards the end of the night when it was the younger crowd he switched over to more current music which I thought was great!

I can't thank DJ Eddy & Dave enough for helping make our wedding day run flawless! We spent many months researching and interviewing bands and DJs in the DC area, but after my fiance spoke with Dave we booked Black Tie DJs immediately. Dave was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout our entire planning process. We had an extremely complicated reception set-up (cocktail hour, dinner and then dancing all in 3 separate locations at our venue) and Eddy couldn't have been any more professional and attentive to making sure everything was set-up perfect (including our beautiful uplights) and that the music was great! We literally danced non-stop after dinner and didn't get off the dance floor til the reception ended. We had the time of our life (as did our guests) and that was due to the great vibe and music that Eddy provided. This company is extremely professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable. Black Tie DJ's is a must for your wedding!

The perfect DJ, that is what I would say Wyatt Hill of Black Tie DJs provides. His service from pre-planning for the reception to the end of the reception was outstanding. His expertise was invaluable as I was trying to combine two cultures and multiple age groups into our music selections. He contacted me at the very beginning of planning and kept in contact throughout the planning. The day of the reception his professionalism and high regard for ensuring a successful event were apparent throughout the reception. All of the guests commented on how much they liked our DJ, young and old! It was amazing that the dance floor was packed and everyone having a great time, yet you were still able to converse at the tables. I was so glad that during our pre-planning we had decided on dance lighting and party props. I wasn't sure how many people would be dancing.

The perfect DJ, that is what I would say Wyatt Hill of Black Tie DJs provides. His service from pre-planning for the reception to the end of the reception was outstanding. His expertise was invaluable as I was trying to combine two cultures and multiple age groups into our music selections. He contacted me at the very beginning of planning and kept in contact throughout the planning. The day of the reception his professionalism and high regard for ensuring a successful event were apparent throughout the reception. All of the guests commented on how much they liked our DJ, young and old! It was amazing that the dance floor was packed and everyone having a great time, yet you were still able to converse at the tables. I was so glad that during our pre-planning we had decided on dance lighting and party props. I wasn't sure how many people would be dancing. However, Wyatt's great music selections and the fun party props, got even the most hesitant dancers out on the floor. Everyone left our reception with a smile, not only for the happiness of the event, but for the great evening that Wyatt provided. I would highly recommend Wyatt Hill of Black Tie DJs for your event!

My wife is the youngest of three girls, all of which have used Black Tie DJ's for their wedding.

Black Tie DJ's was extremely responsive, did a great job in matching us up with a DJ based on our needs (we wanted someone involved but not TOO involved), and was very competitively and reasonably priced.

We had Wyatt Hill DJ our our wedding two weeks ago. He was awesome from the get go and I would recommend both Black Tie DJ's and more specifically Wyatt for your next event.

Wyatt was extremely professional and catered to every detail that my wife and I wanted from the DJ / MC point of view. We had ~2 phone meetings with him prior to the event go over songs and the order of operation regarding the event. While we provided some songs that we wanted to hear, we left the majority of the decision making up to Wyatt who did a great job selecting songs based on the crowd's vibe. Our wedding consisted of a majority dancing and while a decent part of that was on account of our awesome friends, a large part of it can definitely be attributed to Wyatt's abilities. If you have been to enough weddings you definitely know that a DJ can make OR break the event.

I could not have been happier with our DJ, Wyatt! He made contact with us several times to go over and confirm details and get a feel for what we needed. On the day of, he helped us coordinate everything that needed to happen, from introductions to toasts right down to the final dance. We got several compliments from excited guests about how great the music was -- at one point he even let my cousin behind the DJ table to announce a song!

No detail went overlooked on our big day. I was shocked when Wyatt showed up with a tie that matched out wedding colors (he apparently carries a selection with him to each event!). If I had it to do over again, I would re-book this DJ in a heartbeat.

Eddy Bobby was our DJ from Black Tie DJs. Simply, he was fantastic!! He arrived on time and helped make sure that the day was truly memorable. We had an outdoor ceremony and he set up the speakers and microphone for the officiant. The reception was indoors. He not only played the music we chose, but did a great job of choosing other songs that fit well within the parameters we had given him. Additionally, our guests (both young and old) liked the variety of music played and also the volume of it (no guest complained of the music being too loud).

Throughout our wedding day, there was great communication between the DJ and us and also between the DJ and our caterer and venue coordinator. This helped to reduce stress and made sure that everyone was on the same page in regard to what was happening next.

One reason we selected this company is that they have great music/panning forms. This helps them select which DJ is right for you. These forms include a timeline and a must play list. This helped to make the process super individualized and really ensure that we got what we wanted.

Overall, I highly recommend not only Black Tie DJ, but Eddy Bobby.

Before booking with Black Tie DJ's, we had the chance to speak with the owner, Dave Melton. Of all the DJ's we interviewed, he was the most honest, especially in regards to pricing. Dave even gave us great advice about our reception timeline. As for the day of the wedding, we are were absolutely impressed with our D.J, Matt Johnson. Not only did he get us going on the dance floor with the most perfect mix of music, but he put a lot of time and effort into the prep work leading up to the reception. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the music played and everyone was impressed with the uplighting. Uplighting completely transformed our ballroom, it was amazing! If you are able to get the uplighting, we highly recommend it. Matt was so friendly and kind, but professional at the same time, and just made our wedding a night to remember!

Brad McCormick (our DJ) and Dave Melton (the owner of Black Tie DJs) were both consummate professionals who made our wedding music AMAZING! We were impressed with Dave's business model from the beginning and were hooked by all the great planning tools that he has. He seemed to really understand what we were looking for and we felt comfortable with his wide range of DJs. We were then assigned Brad a month or so before the wedding and had bought the package with an in person DJ meeting. Our meeting with Brad was fantastic--he was one part DJ and one part wedding maestro, working with us on developing an appropriate timeline. At the wedding, Brad was EXACTLY what we wanted. He kept things moving but never felt overbearing. He had great taste in music and knew when to hang back and when to stoke the party. I couldn't imagine a better wedding DJ!

Black Tie DJ's, and especially our assigned DJ, Wyatt Hill, made my whole event run so smoothly. We did not have a wedding/day of coordinator, which in retrospect I would probably spring for, but it didn't matter too much because Wyatt did a fantastic job of wrangling our guests and stepping into that role. He played a great variety of music for our guests and people commented on how great the selection was. He was also great about getting obscure songs for our special dances, and taking guest requests. When we showed up 30 minutes late to our reception and then on top of that had forgotten something in the limo, which we then had to wait on to double back, he was fine with handling that too, and re-worked our plan for the event so that nothing was missing. He also was willing to work with us for unplanned toasts, which had not been part of our schedule originally and we decided the night before to include (but didn't tell him).
I didn't even notice that we were behind schedule because Wyatt just handled it so well and professionally. Really outstanding and on top of that a really nice guy. We Skyped about a month before to plan out the event and then he gave a follow up phone call 5 days before so that we could discuss any changes (and there were quite a few!). Wyatt always made it clear that he wanted my event to be as perfect as possible and was really willing to do whatever I wanted him to do.
They were a good value for the money and I'd highly recommend them for a wedding or any other event.

I was very happy with Black Tie DJs. The owner, Dave, was very responsive and helpful on the telephone when I was initially comparing prices and services between several possible vendors. We did a Skype interview with our DJ, Eddy, during which time we discussed music choices, and he helped us understand the information we needed to provide to make the evening go smoothly.

The planning tools are thorough and helpful. For our event - a wedding reception - the planning tools helped force us to clearly define the order of events, think about timing, and make sure we selected the appropriate amount of music. On the day of, Eddy was timely, professional, and accommodated our last minute requests without a hitch. While all of our vendors ultimately came through and did a good job, Black Tie DJs was probably the best in terms of communication and making me confident in the services they would provide. I would highly recommend them.

BLACK TIE DJS ARE THE BEST! I RECOMMEND TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE!!!! I WOULD NEVER HIRE ANYONE ELSE!
My husband and I were married on 29 December 2012 and we had Black Tie DJs to DJ at our wedding.
Black Tie DJs provided the most amazing service I could have ever hoped for. They were incredibly professional, extremely organized, and gave my husband and I the most memorable and fantastic wedding.
During the course of the wedding planning, we had several videoconferences with DJ Eddy Bobby. He is excellent and I would recommend him for ANY wedding. During our video conferences the DJ gave us great advice and guided us in a way that allowed us to have the music that we wanted, but we also entrusted the DJ to play what he deemed appropriate based on the pace and ambience of the wedding.
I am originally from NY (half Irish-half Italian) and my husband was born in Egypt. We wanted a wedding that fused both the American and Egyptian cultures together. Since DJ Eddy Bobby does not have much Arabic music, my husband provided him with songs and our DJ was able to mix both types of music.
The DJ guided our families through the ceremony and wedding reception entrances perfectly! NOT ONE THING WENT WRONG!
I love to dance and so does my family and husband's family. I did not leave the dance floor once!The DJ did such an unbelievably perfect job at blending the two types of music that the Americans were loving the Arabic music and the Egyptians were loving the American music! Even the Egyptians were saying that our DJ Eddy Bobby was better than the Arab DJs around!
I highly recommend Black Tie DJ services for any event! I cannot stress enough how truly amazing they were, especially DJ Eddy Bobby! We gave him a challenge with the Arabic music and he really nailed it! People are still talking about how much fun our wedding was to this day!

Eddy took on two jobs that night – DJ and wedding planner and he executed both flawlessly. Everything went so smoothly and they did such a good job with playing all our must play songs as well as keeping everyone dancing the whole night! Me and my fiancé both have difficult last names that are often said incorrectly but Eddy said both perfectly which made us both and our families very happy. Black Tie is super easy to contact and Dave is very responsive, often getting back to me within minutes of me emailing him. I would absolutely use Eddy and Black Tie again and will recommend them to future brides!

Black Tie is super easy to contact and Dave is very responsive, often getting back to me within minutes of me emailing him. I would absolutely use Eddy and Black Tie again and will recommend them to future brides! Read less

I had a blast with my DJ, Eddy Bobby. Coordinating everything ahead of time was stress free and easy. The emails were prompt and professional. Their website is very user friendly. I felt Eddy Bobby did a fantastic job at the wedding, even helping when I wasn't sure when to do certain things. He made sure everything stayed on track and played off of my crowd, getting everyone to dance. He respected my "do not play list" and even found my mom when a group of guests requested a song that was a little of the style we did not wish to play (Mom said sure and it was not a big deal). The DJ and the assistant were dressed professional as well. I would recommend them to anyone.

Eddy Bobby was also there to help my brother (my officiant) get miked up for the ceremony and we had no issues with hearing him with an outside wedding.

I met Black Tie DJs at a bridal show! I visited their website and requested a quote! After receiving the quote I met with the owner, Dave, at my venue to go over their services. After meeting with Dave, I knew they were the company for me! I felt very comfortable working with them. They always answered my calls and emails promptly. Bob Artman, was my recommended DJ base on what type of DJ I was looking for. He was very easy to work with and very professional and focused! I had him select the music for the reception and he did a great job! You can select exactly what you want the whole night or you don't have to pick anything and let the DJ do the work. I let Bob feel out the crowd to make sure we played something for everyone! He even took request from my guests! He even was able to make a last minute change to the music for ceremony, right before the ceremony started. If you are looking for someone to help energize the crowd and get the party going, Bob is your guy! He even coordinated with my photographer. Letting him know when the cake cutting, bouquet toss and garter toss was going to happen so he would be ready for the perfect shots! I would recommend Black Tie DJs!

We had a great experience with Black Tie DJs! Dave Melton helped with the start up processes and was very knowledgeable about weddings and getting the logistics started. He was also very responsive to emails and phone calls.

Bob Artman was our DJ for the wedding and reception. We LOVED Bob...I even took a picture with him at the reception. He played the right music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and for the reception. He kept the dance party going. There was never a time when people left the dance floor like at other weddings when the "wrong" song gets played. He worked with me the entire night because we were off schedule and communicated with me when things needed to be adjusted.

It was great working with Bob and Black Tie DJs!

THANK YOU!

Had a fantastic experience with DJ Eddy Bobby and his assistant, Wyatt. Planning my Washington, DC wedding from afar was pretty stressful, but Eddy and my initial point of contact at Black Tie, Dave, were so wonderful and on top of their game. They were able to answer and provide helpful feedback regarding all of my DJ-related questions. Eddy and Wyatt were able to successfully keep the party going during the reception. We had so many guests tell us after the reception how much fun they had on the dance floor. That's definitely a success in my book!

We had DJ Matt and he was excellent! The wedding flowed well and everyone was dancing and having a great time. We also attended another wedding where he was the DJ and he was great there as well. Both the company and DJ Matt were extremely knowledgable about the process and offered us their professional advice to make sure our wedding was the best it could be. I would highly recommend using Black Tie DJs for your wedding!

Black Tie DJs MADE my wedding. Brad McCormick did EXACTLY what we wanted, and kept everyone dancing all night. At one point, I looked around and saw my 80 year old grandparents boogying down- that hasn't happened in 20 years!

Dave answered all of our questions from the very beginning, and made it an easy decision to choose them. I was so happy with the way Brad organized everything and helped everything run smoothly (even after our wedding coordinator disappeared- he rocked it out).

DJs were the hardest thing to pick for us, because it's not like you can look online for clips of their work. However, we felt comfortable with Dave and Brad right away, and were so happy with the results. Thanks guys!

We were very pleased with Brad McCormick from Black Tie DJs. We had two Skype/phone calls with him before the wedding to work out details. He was responsive to our desires and offered up his own ideas as well. He was familiar with our venue and knew what was necessary for setup. The night of the wedding, he played the correct songs for specific parts of the ceremony. He kept the dance floor packed from beginning to end during the reception. He also was great with coordinating with our day-of coordinator for wedding events such as the Introductions, Cake Cutting, and Special Dances.

Dealing with Black Tie DJs itself in regards to payments was a breeze. I recommend this vendor to anyone and try to get Brad!

Black Tie DJ's were great and easy to work with. When we had our initial call they made sure they knew everything of what we wanted from our DJ. They work with an online form to fill out that was a blessing because it let us put all the details we wanted and also let us specify which songs we wanted played and not played. From here we were put with Brad McCormick for our DJ. He was great to work with and was very responsive every time we had a question. He also even worked with my dad when my dad wanted to play a surprise song for our Father/Daughter dance. At the wedding Brad did everything we wanted him to do, from the ceremony music to announcing the names correctly (this was great because my name is hard!), to helping with the bouquet and garter toss! He was a pleasure to work with and Black Tie DJs was very professional and really easy to work with.

Black Tie DJs was amazing! We originally heard about them from a family member, and could not have been more happy with their performance! We spoke with our DJ before our wedding, and she was incredible. She quickly picked up on the vibe of our wedding, and helped design the flow of our reception. On the night of our reception, she kept us on schedule without being overly strict or intrusive. Our dance floor was never empty, and people still talk about our wedding reception almost 2 years later!

We definitely recommend black tie DJs, they were worth every penny and more!

He played the ceremony music and also the reception. He was super nice and easy to work with and so flexible. He did great in keeping the reception events going and on time, I didn't have to worry about a thing! I put most of the music choice in his hands and he read the crowd well and played the right music. I would definitely recommend them to any Bride!

My experience with Black Tie DJs and all their staff was wonderful. I dealt with Dave and my DJ was Matt Johnson. They were both easy to talk to and always available to assist with any of my questions. I wanted to confirm my DJ before booking and Dave worked quickly to make this happen. They offered suggestions to our timeline without being pushy. They provided song options when I was having trouble finding the right version of Here Comes the Bride.

Our DJ was Matt Johnson who did an amazing job. The dance floor was constantly full and everyone had a wonderful time. The groom and I specified our expected 'level of DJ involvement' and Matt stuck with that agreement perfectly. He also helped with our timeline. Matt and Dave kept in touch to make sure I didn't have questions. I didn't have to think about checking in with them when the wedding date got closer.

We had an outdoor wedding and they set up the speakers and the sound table to be close enough to make accurate and timely music changes. They had a microphone for the officiant that was clear and I believe loud enough for all to hear (no one mentioned otherwise) and w/o issue. During the rehearsal our officiant told us the bridal party would not hear the music changes for where we were. On the day of the music was loud and clear enough to be heard by the bridal party to know their entrance (without being obnoxiously loud as well).

I would not change a thing about their service. I was impressed with their professionalism and all the services provided. They even allowed my dad to plug in an audio recorder to record the ceremony.

I highly recommend Black Tie DJs and Dave and Matt!

He was by far the best person we could have hired to play at our wedding. Our guests had such a great time partying with Matt - most of them even stayed at the reception, long after my husband and I left, to dance the night away. Our friends and family still talk about how great of a DJ he was and how much fun they had at our reception. If you need a DJ - call Black Tie DJs!! It's the best decision that you can make!!

We booked Black Tie DJ’s after meeting Dave Melton the owner at a bridal show/open house. It was one of the best decisions we made. Our DJ was Carl and he was amazing. He was warm and welcoming, funny and entertaining, all while encouraging everyone to get up and dance. Given our varied tastes in music – he had quite the task to play a combination of country, current pop hits, with a little classic rock mixed it. And he nailed it! Carl clearly loves his job and his energy is contagious. We had a problem with our caterer causing dinner to be delayed for an hour. We – and our guests – had become restless and he did his best to work through the situation with us. His sense of humor worked well in calming us down when we got impatient waiting for the reception to start. He has to be the star of our wedding vendors and I can’t say enough good things about him. If your DJ is Carl – rest easy your guests will have a ball.

I hired Black Tie DJs for my wedding in March 2012. The owner was extremely responsive and very knowledgeable and made suggestions that improved the reception. The DJ was very nice, and also responsive and helpful before the wedding. I provided him a list of must play songs during the reception and he played every one of them! My wedding was a combination of cultures (Spanish, American, and Sierra Leonean) and the music the DJ played was a perfect reflection of that. Several of my guests commented on how good the DJ was and was impressed how he was able to blend different music genres. I highly recommend Black Tie DJs for any event! Very professional and very good!!

We were extremely pleased with Black Tie Djs. Dave, the owner, asked us about our event and had us complete a detailed form to describe the event and our music preferences, level of DJ interaction, etc. Very organized. He matched us with a great DJ, Russ. Russ had a great, deep DJ voice and was able to gauge the guests musical preferences with amazing flexibility and accuracy. He had song and song set selection down to a science. All of our guests danced the entire night, and we didn't even serve alcohol!

Book Black Tie and ask for Russ. No need to pay extra for a face-to-face meeting, just get the basic package and do a Skype meeting. It worked perfectly.

Black Tie DJs are awesome to work with. They make it so easy to book, plan, and pay. Everything is done through their online database which makes it super convenient when planning a wedding. I originally spoke with Dave Melton and he was so helpful with answering my intial questions. We ended up being matched with Eddy Bobby as our DJ. He was great. He was on time and played the perfect music for my guests. It was especially special when he played my favorite song ever (Dave Matthews Band, "Crush") for our last dance. I didn't even give him a heads up that it was my favorite song. He was also very interactive with the guests when he played line dances. He was overall a great DJ and I would recommend Black Tie DJs to anyone who wants a DJ to get the party started!

Our experience with Black Tie DJs was nothing short of oustanding. Dave was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the planning process. We had a lot of song requests that weren't listed in their library (including a song by Kermit the Frog), but he assured us that it was no problem to get them, and sure enough, every single one was played at the reception. Our DJ, Russ Reiff, was fantastic! He was not only a delight to talk to, but he went above and beyond to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted played and when, and he kept the reception going according to our timeline. What's more, my husband and his brothers planned to perform a song at the reception. Russ made sure they had the equipment they needed and handled the set up for them! The dance floor was packed all night, and many of our guests commented on how great the song selections were. To top it off, Black Tie DJs is VERY reasonably priced. But don't let the low cost fool you. These guys are top quality, professional DJs who will work to make sure your reception is a success.

Black Tie DJ's was AMAZING!!!! They request you fill out planning forms online - which is great, because you can do it at your leisure - we made multiple changes up until the week before. Our DJ was DJ Matt Johnson who did an absolutely amazing job!!! Everyone kept telling us they would love to hire him for a birthday party or any other event they have!!! DJ Matt was great to work with!! He had really great suggestions - like moving the toast to earlier in the night so the Best Man and MOH didn't have to wait around all night thinking about it! He also helped calm down our Ring Bearer who was getting upset about the possibility of not being introduced with the rest of the party. Matt did a great job!!!

Our DJ, Eddie Bobby, was PERFECT. He suited our crowd so well, and played great music all night. He also served as our Master of Ceremonies, and did a great job getting every "event" coordinated throughout the night so that no one missed a thing. At the end of the night, two of my bridesmaids went to him to request a song as the "final song," and he told them that he didn't have it... but he said he'd get it. Ten minutes later, he had downloaded it, and I got surprised with our special song for the final dance. He was great! Everyone in our family is still talking about how great the music was, and how packed the dance floor was the whole night. I've been to two weddings since ours, and the DJs didn't even compare. I was so pleased with our decision. My best friend got married two months before I did, and also used Black Tie, and she was just as happy as I was. We're two-for-two, and my sister has signed her contract with them for next June. Highly recommend this company!

We chose Black Tie DJ's after a friend told us of what an amazing job the DJ did at her sister's wedding. And... they followed suit at our own! Brad was our DJ and he was awesome. We wanted someone to make the necessary announcements but not be too cheesy, and he wins! He was able to have the night and our guests move in those certain ways when you need them too, he was able to set the tone, and he got people moving when it was time to move. All seamlessly, without visible effort.

When I first started planning the wedding I thought that I would be planning out the entire playlist because it was something I thought I would need to do to ensure the tone of our evening was right. I was obviously a crazy person for thinking I would have time for this and... that's why you hire a DJ! From our chat and the few key songs I had picked out (introductions, first dance, father daughter, and a few key ones that Matthew and I knew we wanted to hear) Brad was able to come up with the perfect songs all throughout the evening.

Everyone loved the music during dinner, it gave off such a great vibe. And the party was rocking on the dance floor all night. We had such a great time and the entire evening went so smoothly. Brad worked with our other vendors to create a seamless evening. Fantastic job and thank you!

Black Tie DJs was recommended to us by a relative who used them for her wedding reception. Although we had some trouble selecting songs on the online event planning form, we were able to send a spreadsheet directly to Andrew (our assigned DJ) and had a couple of pre-event calls to make sure everything was in order. We had a special request for the introduction of the wedding party and Andrew worked with us to make sure we supplied him with the correct type of music files. The music selection was a really important part of our reception to us, and Andrew gave us some good advice on the order of songs. At the reception, he did a great job serving a master of ceremonies and was able to play almost every song from our request list. Our guests all had a great time!

Eddy Bobby was the DJ we chose for our wedding on Saturday, 6/11/2011. He was fantastic! Easy going, relaxed, professional, and just overall a good guy. He had everyone dancing at our wedding. He did an exceptional job balancing our requests and picking selections of his own based on our guests and the feel of the party. Since I had already met Eddy Bobby at a bridal exhibit, we set up a video conference/chat online so my finance/husband could have the opportunity to meet him prior to the wedding. We received a discount for holding our meeting online as oppose to an in person meeting. Another plus.

I did plenty of research before meeting Black Tie DJs, and found Black Tie DJs' rates were by far the best. What really attracted me to them was their online capability. We could request all our songs and compile our playlist through their website. We could also upload our schedule, pay our bill, even sign our contract online. It's easy to use, and it made my life so MUCH easier.

I highly recommend Black Tie DJs. They have a variety of DJs to choose from. My husband and I are in our late 20s/early 30s. We found Eddy Bobby was the guy for us.

Thank you Eddy Bobby and Dave Melton for making it a positive experience for us!

We hired Brad McCormick from Black Tie DJ's for our wedding and he was great. We wait until 2 months before the wedding to even book the dj and didn't schedule a call with Brad until maybe 1 month before because our schedules were just so crazy. They have a great website so that you can really customize everything that you want to hear. List top 15 "must play songs" Top 15 "do not play songs", Top 15 "try to play" etc. We also gave Brad a list of songs that we would like to hear for the cocktail hour and dinner portion and he really followed our wishes. We also had a very specific intro song and announcement song that he was able to do seamlessly for us.
All of our wedding guests have been telling us all summer that our DJ was so perfect for our wedding and no one could stop dancing because the songs kept getting better and better. Brad was really great during the reception, if there was a song that i wanted to hear at a specific time, he was really receptive and did exactly what I asked.
I would highly recommend Brad and Black Tie DJs to any bride and groom.

We chatted with our DJ, Dave Melton, over the phone and then at our reception everything was absolutely perfect and went VERY well. Even the staff & guests commented to me that they had never heard better music at a reception yet was able to still have conversations with other guests not having to talk above the music level. Dave was very in tune with the wedding guests & was professional the ENTIRE night as well as personable. Dave was such a blessing to have as our "Music Man" at our wedding and would HIGHLY recommend him to other Brides & Grooms looking for a DJ.

I cannot say enough great things about Black Tie DJ's. They were absolutely my favorite vendor to work with.

Dave Melton was the first person I talked to. He was responsive and flexible. I would recommend to any bride to talk openly about him with your budget and your goals. His customer service skills are very high and he seems very sincere. He will work to make you as happy as he can within your budget.

We were assigned Matt Johnson as our DJ. Matt took the time to meet with me and discuss what I wanted for the wedding. He played some of my favorite songs, some of the parent's favorite songs. Guests raved about him, during the wedding, at the breakfast the next morning, and for weeks afterward.

One of my girlfriends just got married last year and the first thing she asked me for after her engagement was for Matt's contact info.

He is attentive, very professional, and a real artist. He talks to you and understands what's important to you, and creates a perfect atmosphere for your wedding.

I normally hate to give straight 5s, but I couldn't find anything wrong with our DJ, Brad McCormick, and Black Tie DJ's service and responsiveness. Brad was a true professional, responding to our e-mails and sending reminders about our request lists. He completely followed our timeline after the we discussed, checked in with us throughout the wedding about music volume, came over to get us (as requested) to start the anniversary dance and cake cutting, and made suggestions about how to adjust here and there to make things flow better since dinner was running long. He had a great mix of music and really read the crowd well. He didn't play anything on the 'do not' play list, and he mixed in our 'must plays' in great spots throughout the night.
We used him for the ceremony as well, and it was spot on for the relaxed mood we were setting - he recommended some Vitamin String Quartet music during the prelude - so fun! And everything was faded in and out well.
Black Tie DJs was not expensive compared to the other options out there, and we definitely got our money's worth. The website is a little boring, but functional and gives you a good idea of the music that they have readily available. It was no problem for them to find a couple of specific songs that I didn't see in database, either. But take Black Tie DJs' advice and leave them flexibility on the playlists, they did great.

I normally hate to give straight 5s, but I couldn't find anything wrong with our DJ, Brad McCormick, and Black Tie DJ's service and responsiveness. Brad was a true professional, responding to our e-mails and sending reminders about our request lists. He completely followed our timeline after the we discussed, checked in with us throughout the wedding about music volume, came over to get us (as requested) to start the anniversary dance and cake cutting, and made suggestions about how to adjust here and there to make things flow better since dinner was running long. He had a great mix of music and really read the crowd well. He didn't play anything on the 'do not' play list, and he mixed in our 'must plays' in great spots throughout the night.
We used him for the ceremony as well, and it was spot on for the relaxed mood we were setting - he recommended some Vitamin String Quartet music during the prelude - so fun! And everything was faded in and out well.

From start to finish Black Tie was professional and flexible. Dave and Tony (the owner and our DJ) stayed in frequent contact and they were flexible with the set up and break down times. Tony was the best! He knew just how to read the crowd and provided AWESOME music choices. We danced the night away with our guests. We received lots of compliments from our guests about the music! Tony did a great job! I would do business with Black Tie DJ's for any party or any occasion without hesitation!

Matt Johnson was an amazing DJ for us and provided way more than I ever expected! Everyone asked for his name afterwards. The initial communication with the business owner was also very helpful as I was new to planning and didn't know what I was doing! I was very impressed with them and always recommended to others. :)

Black Tie DJ's was amazing to work with. Their owner Dave stayed on top of me during my decision process as DJ seemed to be difficult for me due to the fact that I was not exactly sure what I was looking for or what to look for in a DJ.

Black Tie DJs make this process much more pleasant for couples to work together on making Reception music and timeline.

Russ Reiff was our DJ and he was PERFECT!! Very seasoned in different genres of music as well as very personable. He actually was able to meet with us before and walk through his resume as well as help us with timeline for reception and suggestions on ceremony musicians and selections of songs to possibly use.

Russ kept our Reception music going and we received a ton of compliments as to the music selections as everyone young and old were out on the dance floor the whole night. I was worried about certain songs being played but after speaking and meeting with Russ as well as going over what different genres and songs we did like and want played he did a FABULOUS job!!!

Definitely recommend this DJ over any other that we spoke to during our planning process.

I loved these guys! When I read through wedding forums, I just can't believe someone wouldn't have a DJ for their wedding- I am certain Matt made our reception. I have never danced so much in my life and I couldn't believe how much everyone was dancing the entire night. Parts of my family danced that I didn't even know had a dancing bone in their body. Matt was great at keeping the crowd entertained all the way until we got kicked out of the venue. He played everything we wanted and had a special way of reading the crowd. He was very helpful all the way up to the wedding day. He was very personable too...complimenting me on the songs I picked for the ceremony musicians. He made me feel like a queen..saying he wouldn't do anything any guest asked of him without my approval first. I would absolutely recommend these guys to anyone.

They did not have our first dance song in their database at the time we booked them but the DJ was kind enough to purchase it on Itunes so we didn't have to burn it onto a cd for him. They are fairly flexible with their planning and VERY professional looking. We were very happy to have them as our DJs for the night :)

We were lucky enough to have Matt Johnson as the DJ for our wedding. He was AWESOME! Everyone kept complimenting us on how the party rocked the entire night. During the one (short) time in the evening where the dance floor was a little empty, Matt got out there himself to teach everyone a dance to keep the party going. He was absolutely fantastic to work with and if I ever needed to hire a DJ again, I would definitely get him! Black Tie DJs, as a company, was also very easy to work with. Overall, Black Tie DJs and Matt earn an A+!

Our DJ, from Black Tie DJs, was very professional, but was laid back enough to have a good time. He played all of our "must haves" and threw in others that totally fit our taste. We had people on the dance floor the whole time, and suprisingly people we didn't expect to be on there. He reached different songs with different generations, but all were ones we loved dancing to. It was very easy to get in touch with our dj. He even took a call during his daughter's game - really sacrificed for us. We appreciate them so much!

Our DJ was awesome! A DJ is someone you want to be able to trust because if you don't have good music, no one will dance and it will damper the mood of the reception. When you first book them, they have you answer questions so they can best match you to a DJ, which is a great thing to do! Black Tie DJs did a fantastic job matching us up with a DJ that fit our personalities. We had Tony Gaetano, and he played fantastic music selections and was involved with all the guests. He brought colorful lights that made the dance floor look amazing and he honored the songs we really wanted played. Black Tie DJs is affordable and caters to your wants. Our reception would not have been near as fun if it wasn't for this DJ.

Black Tie DJs were great to work with. Dave quickly responded by phone to my online request for a quote. He very clearly explained their services and helped me choose only the services and options I needed. It was easy to make all the arrangements and song selections using their online forms, after which we were contacted by the DJ that best matched our needs. Bob Artman was excellent! He provided perfectly cued ceremony music for us outdoors, cocktail music in another location, then introduced the wedding party in the ballroom and got the party going. We were told that people don't tend to dance as much at afternoon weddings, but Bob kept our guests on the floor with great music selections. He even got out there with us and showed as a few moves. I highly recommend these DJs.

Greg Gorham was our DJ and he was so easy going and so flexible with everything. All we had to do was give him a call or send him an email and he worked with us to create the musical ideal. As far as the reception dancey dance music, I couldn't focus on creating a playlist (or even a do-not-playlist), so I told him to feel out the crowd and play anything (as well as take requests) - and boy, can this guy can feel out a crowd! We had people on the dance floor the whole night! He didn't play any "today" music and mostly older stuff, but all music that everyone can dance to and I love love looooved it!!

Our budget couldn't afford live musicians like I had originally wanted, so we had our DJ play our ceremony music as well as our reception music and it worked out great!

Black Tie is a professional entertainment company that provided great service for our wedding reception. Their attention to us and our guests was very good. Only negative would be that you need to specify 'when' you want specific songs played. Some of the songs we requested were played during our noisy cocktail hour rather than during the dance time, so we missed out on dancing to some of our favorite songs.

Andrew did an amazing job keeping the crowd dancing. He played a variety of songs all night that kept the young and old moving. Andrew was also flexible with our schedule during the reception. We had to move the cake cutting to an earlier time and Andrew just made it happen. We are thrilled with the service we got and would highly recommend Black Tie DJs, as well as Andrew for anyone's events. Thank you Andrew for making our day, one to remember forever.

I used Black Tie DJ's for my wedding reception last year which was in the Washington DC area. I really liked the owner, Dave Melton, and appreciated that he was honest about how to decide on music for our wedding and gave good advice. He recommended that we not select too many songs and just give the DJ a good sense of what we wanted, because there is no point to hiring a DJ if you are going to pick every song yourself. And he was right!
The DJ that was selected for us based on the paperwork we did was Wyatt Hill, and he was great! We thought his personality was a good fit for us and the style of wedding we wanted to have. He knew about the kind of music we liked (which is not very typical wedding music but we didn't care) so he could make good recommendations. Wyatt played a great mix of songs we had chosen, requests from our guests, and his own selections based on our tastes. He was very flexible and patient with us and kept the cocktail hour going, stepping into more of a hosting role than originally planned, as our limo was caught up in traffic and our photos took forever, delaying our arrival. Before the wedding, Wyatt was very responsive to my many requests and changes and addressed all of my concerns and was completely non judgmental of everything we chose (and like I said we have some unusual tastes in music). He also demonstrated his capability at dealing with wayward guests who requested songs we specifically didn't want played. I would definitely suggest him specifically.

My entire experience with Black Tie was great, and I think they are an EXCELLENT value for the money. They aren't the least expensive game in town (hence 4.5 stars) but remember, you get what you pay for, and with Black Tie I felt like I paid for quality!

Our DJ, Eddy Bobby, was excellent! He was very easy to communicate with and you could tell he really cared about working with us to make sure we were happy and felt at ease. Our venue was a little different in that the dinner and dancing were held in two separate rooms, but it worked out perfectly thanks to Eddy Bobby. We gave him a list of songs that we wanted played, and he stuck to it (give or take a song or two). We wanted a very high-energy dance floor with lots of fast songs, and he delivered! We were very happy!

We decided to go with Black Tie DJ's after we found that many other DJ companies were just store fronts that sold out independent contractor DJ's. We weren't willing to take the chance that the DJ they gave us would be a dud. The great thing about Black Tie DJ's is that the owner only hires DJ's with years of experience at LARGE events. He does not hire people that have only worked at a few backyard parties. I was happy talking with the owner on the phone, and he was more than happy to fully explain not only the DJ part of our wedding, but also offer some tips for the flow of the ceremony and reception. All of his advice was much appreciated and we were happy that he was not hustling us or upselling us. Every time I called, I was able to speak with the owner directly, or at the most, wait 10 or so minutes for a call back. Once the owner matched us with a DJ that understood both my background (plain guy from MD) and my bride (exotic gorgeous salsa merengue dancing queen from Central America) and the music we liked/disliked, we were then able to directly call and e-mail our DJ with any questions or last minute changes (we had plenty, and Eddy Bobby was always ok with us changing our minds about details). Eddy was professionally dressed in a tux for our reception (we had live jazz band at reception) and he also had a great last minute idea of where to re-locate the DJ table to best accommodate the guests table/chair positions and the entry/egress through the doors. He also had a nice white fabric overlay to cover the tripod legs of his speakers, which made them really blend with our elegant theme. The sound output was great and we had people up and dancing. We also had Eddy announce a raffle two times during the reception for gift cards, which he was happy to do. Overall, considering the competitive price, prompt responsiveness to calls/e-mails, ease of payment thru their website, and professionalism, we would highly recommend Black Tie DJ's for anyone's wedding event.

Black Tie DJ's was fantastic. Our DJ Russ was exactly what we wanted - understated, but just involved enough with announcements and introductions. He met with us several weeks before our wedding to get a feel for our musical tastes and anticipated wedding guest demographic. He did a beautiful job keeping things on track with our general evening timeline. He was also a great resource in helping us to pick our special dance songs! All in all, the music was fantastic - 60's - 80's, and our wedding crowd loved it. We highly recommend Black Tie DJ's (and Russ).

Black Tie did a great job. They did uplighting for us as well as music. People were out on the dance floor having a great time all night. Our only problem was that the DJ was using a pre-set playlist that included our first dance song. It started to play and the groom rushed over to get it changed. The DJ, Eddie, was quick to switch songs and apologized several times. No one else at the wedding noticed. Eddie was very professional and attentive.

Terri WAS FANTASTIC!! I would recommend Black Tie to anyone getting married in the NOVA area, their prices are reasonable and the DJs are amazing! For a group of attendees who never dance, most people spent the majority of the night on the dance floor! Only minor detail that was messed up is my sister in law was announced as Katie instead of Kate but not a big deal and in the overall picture didnt make the reception any less fun! Thank you Terri for a fabulous evening :)

All the information provided by Dave was incredibly helpful and was the reason why we went with Black Tie DJs. Matt was our DJ for the wedding and he did an incredible job MCing and getting the crowd involved.
My only complaint would be I wished he played more top 20 music from today, but I could have made that more clear as well, so I do not want to fault them completely.
I would recommend Black Tie DJs!

When looking for a DJ for our wedding, we wanted someone who would make sure the reception was a dance party but also helped keep all of the important events on schedule and let everyone know when they were happening. Derek from Black Tie did just that! He was wonderful to work with. He got what my fiancé and I wanted right away and had great suggestions for songs and how to handle other aspects of the reception. My fiancé and I have very different tastes in music and he was able to blend them together and play music we both enjoyed. I barely sat down once the music started because I was so busy dancing.

It was also very easy and convenient to have the photo booth and lighting done by the Black Tie. Derek had great ideas for the lighting as well and our reception space looked great. The photo booth was a big hit and there were a ton of fun props to choose from. They printed multiple copies so everyone who wanted one got one.

I would definitely recommend Black Tie to anyone looking for a fun party. Everyone was very nice and easy to work with and the reception turned out exactly how we wanted it to.

We had Denny as our DJ for our wedding. Denny did a family friend's wedding about 10 years ago, my sister's wedding 5 years ago, and was excellent at ours: he kept us as on-schedule as possible and would run around and find me to keep me updated on any changes. He even helped me get my mom's attention to bustle my dress! The planning tools that Black Tie DJ uses were super helpful in figuring out a timeline and playlist- as small or as long as you want it to be. He played all the songs I requested, made note of and announced all the special dedications that I asked for, and my guests had an awesome time. The acoustics of the room made it a bit difficult to understand him, but I think he did what he could to make himself as clear as possible.
Dave Melton, who I met and had most of the communication with before the event, was as nice as can be and very professional. I enjoyed working with this company.

My DJ, Wyatt Hill, did a great job listening to me and my fiance on the types of music we were looking for, and followed through. We had two phone consultations prior to the wedding. He is very customer service oriented, and was professional during the reception. The music got people up and dancing, up until 11:00 p.m.!
I deducted one star because he asked to bring another DJ along with him for the event, which was fine, but near the end of the night the other DJ was sitting on a couch relaxing, and someone came up to me asking who he was, as if he was a guest. It just seemed a bit unprofessional.

Black Tie Djs overall did a great job at our wedding reception. They didn't blare the music too loud, and played pretty much everything we had requested. Our DJ, Eddy, didn't take over the reception and talk the entire time. The cost was very reasonable and their online planning forms helped me to think ahead of time about reception details.

Our only major complaint is that Eddy played the wrong song for our entrance. We had asked for the theme from Top Gun, but he played "Danger Zone". We had gone over this detail in our Skype session the week before, but he had not seemed prepared for the session. A couple of other suggestions I had made during the Skype session (but did not put into writing) were not followed, either.

We received a feedback form immediately after the wedding, and we filled it out. The owner apologized for the mistake on our entrance song and asked for some additional feedback to help remedy this for future clients. I appreciated the owner communicating and getting additional feedback from us in a timely manner. I would hire them again, but maybe run through things with my DJ right before the event.

I used Black Tie DJ (Russ Reiff was our actual DJ) because of a friend's wedding...we had a great time! The company itself didn't communicate our playlist to him (which is why it's only 4 out of 5 stars on responsiveness), but that was no big deal and easy enough to fix by a simple re-send. Russ was completely flexible and response through the entire process, working with both myself and my day-of coordinator to make sure we had the schedule, song list, and other details down. Even though Hurricand Irene was an uninvited guest to the wedding, he kept the crowd dancing and having a great time throughout. We were so glad to have him!

DJ did a great job; the dance floor was pretty much packed for 3 hours straight. The company gives you a lot of options for the type of personality you want, from a very involved emcee type to a low key non-intervention type. The DJ provided fit our requests exactly. I thought the pricing was very reasonable too.

We had DJ Eddy Bobby at our wedding on June 24th, 2011. He was great and kept the crowd going all night long. The online form is for the most part, user friendly and when I had questions I could call or email Dave Melton, who is very responsive to emails. We opted for 15 songs on our list and then we trusted the knowledge and experience of our DJ to feel the crowd out, and he did just that when playing the rest of the music. I requested 2 songs and Eddy Bobby got them on right away. Thanks for making our night a blast!!!

Brad of Black Tie DJs was the DJ for my Spring 2011 wedding. To be honest, the DJ wasn't a huge priority for us and we didn't give it much thought. We picked Black Tie because several of our other vendors assured us they were good and because their prices were much more reasonable than several other companies I talked to.

Brad and I had some SNAFUs in communication before the wedding and I take 95% of the responsiblity for that. I was a bit burnt out on wedding planning and taking the time to decide on a cake cutting song wasn't my priority. But Brad made sure he got the information he needed to make my husband and I happy. Then, to be honest, I handed him off to my coordinator - Graceful Weddings. Graceful Weddings and Brad really took the time to figure out what I wanted and make it happen.

Brad was great at our reception. I was really surprised by how many people - from 18 to 72 - were on the dance floor all night long. Brad responded to the crowd and it worked well. My husband later complained a bit that he would have liked more slow songs, more country songs. While I know that was his personal preference, I feel like Brad did what worked to keep the party going. Husband did ask Brad at one point to play a few more slow or country songs, and he did play a few.

I was happy with Black Tie DJs, particularly as it wasn't a budget priority for me. Brad was unfailingly polite and responsive. My guests had a great time. I liked that Black Tie let me pick what 'style' of DJ I wanted - Brad struck a good balance between being the MC and pressing 'play' - none of that cheesy morning DJ stuff.

We met these guys at a wedding show and immediately clicked with personalities and their prices were great. Although they have the equipment to do it, we were not interested in a lot of extra features like a light show, etc. We were just looking for someone who could keep the flow of the night going and play lots of great music and we made the right choice. After the traditional dances, he jumped right in to a fun dance song and they dance floor was packed for the next 3 hours straight!! A great mix of 80s and top hits. Our DJ was Greg. He arrived early and was ready to go. PS - we put every "group dance" song such as chicken dance, YMCA, etc on our DO NOT PLAY LIST and even if requested, he kept our wishes. :-)

My husband and I had very specific songs we wanted to hear at the wedding. In fact, we had the entire playlist for the entire night. When Black Tie DJs called me about my choices, they tried to talk me out of what I wanted. They wanted more freedom to play other music. This is my only complaint about Black Tie DJs. I didn't like having someone trying to talk me out of my choices. In the end, they did exactly what I wanted and the DJ I had on the night was fabulous! The music was great and everyone had a great time.

Black Tie's Russ Reiff DJ'd my wedding, and I was very pleased with his service. I think I was probably a fairly demanding bride, as I selected pretty much every single song I wanted played at the wedding. I set up playlists on my Rhapsody music streaming account for pre-ceremony, ceremony, post-ceremony, cocktail/dinner, and dance music, and I probably had 10 total hours of music. Russ had no problem assimilating my playlists onto his equipment and was pleasant and accommodating when I had changes, although I tried to keep it to a minimum. He showed up at the wedding on time and dressed in a tux with high-quality, functioning equipment with backups in case of malfunction, and he gave me pretty much exactly what I asked for. All the songs played were from my playlists, he played them in a pleasing order, he provided wireless microphones/boom mikes/lavalier mikes for the toasts/readers/officiant, and he did announcements for all the events I had given him for the evening with a good speaking voice in a professional, low-key manner. I had several compliments on the music and don't really have much cause for complaint with Russ. The only possible improvements that could have been made are: (a) I gave all my vendors a timeline for the evening to keep us on schedule, and we did get behind schedule a little bit; Russ notified me that we were late, but I had really wanted him to help keep us on time as master of ceremonies without me having to be involved watching the clock since I was so busy. However, it wasn't a real problem; in the end, everything got done that needed to be done and in decent time. However, if I could do it again, I would have told Russ that I wanted him to make sure the schedule was kept without me having to worry about it myself. (b) Sometimes it took several days for Russ to answer e-mails, but in the week leading up to my wedding, he was very responsive.

So all in all, I had a very good experience with Black Tie, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Russ; he did a bang-up job and gave me exactly what I asked for at a decent price ($1200).

Denny of Black Tie DJs did a perfect job of setting the tone for our celebration. Black Tie did a good job of interviewing my groom and me to find the right person for our party: Denny. He did an excellent job of choosing songs based on the music genres we told him we liked (we didn't give him many specific songs to play). He also did an excellent job as Master of Ceremonies. We didn't want the DJ to be a big personality at our party, but we needed someone to keep the event moving and Denny struck just the right balance.

Carl from Black Tie DJs was great. We spoke on the phone before the wedding, and he provided many suggestions, and helped me figure out the timeline of events. They have a planning tool online, which I found very helpful in helping me pick songs, giving them the timeline of the night, etc. Everyone was on the dancefloor dancing, and they had a great time! The song I chose for the first dance, he didn't have, but he somehow found the song for me! I didn't realize how busy I would be the night of my wedding, just running around and greeting people who had traveled so far to be there, and Carl was great about coming up to me and letting me know that we were running behind schedule, and that we needed to do the father daughter dance now, the cake cutting now, etc. I'm glad he was there to tell me when to do certain 'events' of the night. One of the groomsmen and another friend decided to surprised us with doing a dance off. They went up to Carl at some point in the night and talked to him, and Carl announced them, and let them do the danceoff. It was hilarious. We had a medical emergency that required one of our guests to go to the hospital, so that put a pause on the evening for a little bit.. The venue (Belmont Country Club) graciously let us stay an extra hour, to make up for the lost time, and Carl stayed as well. I don't think we got charged overtime for this (if we did, I haven't seen the bill!). Black Tie Djs was great to work with, and I would recommend them. My only complaint would be, that they are not very responsive with email (my preferred communication method), and seemed to prefer the phone. When Carl called me, it would be from a blocked number, so I didn't answer his calls at first.. So it was a bit of phone tag in the beginning, but overall, it all worked out.

Communication was great, payment was easy, and for the quality of service that we received, it was a good value.

Julio was our DJ and he was absolutely great! After every meeting I left feeling relieved and at ease about the wedding. Julio had great suggestions and was very open to my thoughts. At the wedding there were some minor moments where we weren't on the same page (started to set up garter toss when we weren't doing one; played a different song for cake cutting than requested - but in fairness it was the original song we had discussed but I had written an email requesting a change two weeks before). Those are the only reasons why I did not give a 5 out of 5. I would definitely recommend this company and there's no other company I would have gone with if I were to do it differently. Julio had a great attitude, was extremely helpful, and brought a great energy to our wedding. A DJ is definitely one of those things you don't want to skimp on and they offer their services at a great deal. I have recommended Black Tie Entertainment to many of my soon to be wed friends.

I enjoyed working with Bob Artman at our wedding, he was very entertaining and kept our guest dancing the night away! He also helped keep our event on time and was proactive in the planning process.

We had the BEST DJ for our wedding from this vendor. Ask for Eddy Bobby. We filled out small request list and Eddy chose the rest of the music based off of that. We had the dance floor covered the entire open dance of our reception. He also helped out our friends set up that were playing live music for our ceremony and even provided them a tent to cover their equipment so it wouldn't explode in the 90 degree heat. The only downside about this vendor is the cost... but you truly get what you pay for!

Very happy with the service provided by Black Tie DJs. From my initial phone call with Dave, the owner, to the day-of service provided by Wyatt, everything was handled with professionalism and provided just what we were looking for.

Wyatt was able to respond on-the-fly to some small spontaneous changes to our original plan during the event. And more importantly, he got the whole room out on the dance floor and kept them out there throughout the night.

I'd definitely recommend their services.

Black Tie DJ's was very easy to work with and their planning forms made everything so simple. All of our requests were played and the dance floor was alive the whole night. We also used their uplighting which looked great in the ballroom.

DJ Carl was great! He knew our style and applied that to our wedding. We were somewhat short on time at the reception in terms of the events we had planned, but DJ Carl was able to transition each event smoothly without them seeming rushed. We were very pleased overall and our guests told us how much they really liked our DJ.

We used Black Tie DJs specifically because of the reviews the company received on WeddingWire. We had originally chosen a DJ that a friend recommended and used at her wedding but that DJ ended up getting double-booked so we came to WeddingWire to look for another one. We are so glad we did! Not only was Black Tie DJs $300 cheaper than our original DJ, but they are very flexible. You fill out a form online to tell them how involved you want them to be in the wedding.

Brad our DJ was great. He was dressed professionally (in a suit) and he knew how to work the crowd. One of my bridesmaids even commented how the dance floor stayed crowded the entire evening. And it wasn't just one age group out on the dance floor - he played music that seemed to appeal to everyone.

We have already recommended Black Tie DJs to a co-worker getting married this fall and will continue to recommend them to others looking for a DJ.

I was very pleased with Black Tie DJ. They were relatively inexpensive and match you up with a DJ that fits your criteria. All in all it was a good experience and the music selection was quite extensive!

We had a good experience with Jim McHugh from Black Tie DJs. First of all, they offered a great value. Secondly, Jim was extremely professional. He rolled with the flow, and always checked with us when it was time to move things along and to make sure we were happy. He played just about all our requested songs. There were some slip-ups but mostly we were pleased.

We had good and bad experiences with this DJ. Towards the date of our wedding we were tight on our budget and were thinking of opting out of our contract with the DJ, we had difficulty trying to reason with them to get some of our deposit back so then we finally decided to stay with them. They were professional on the wedding date but since it was a younger crown we were a little worried about the quality of hip music theyd play. But all in all, it was a successful night so I would still reccommend them to others.

Black Tie DJs are adequate for the price, but I was not entirely satisfied with their service. The initial contracting and planning process is quite efficient - all of it can be done easily via phone, fax, and email, and the online music selection and event planning tools they provide are user-friendly, offer a wide range of musical options, and are very convenient. However, I was rather disappointed with the service provided by the DJ assigned to our event. He did not contact me until a few days prior to our wedding, and on our wedding day, there were a number of glitches with the music. The DJ arrived only 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the reception to start setting up, the recording he used for our first dance song was of poor quality and audibly scratched/skipped throughout our first dance, he got my husband's first name wrong during one of the announcements over the microphone, and he forgot to play the song that I had previously requested for our last dance. He was flexible in accommodating our request to extend the music by a half hour at the end of the reception, however.

Black Tie Entertainment responded with the following comments:

We checked our records and would like to clarify a few issues because this evaluation seems a bit different given our version of events. We asked the bride and groom to fill out our evaluation and was returned with "good/excellent" to every question except promptness which were given an "average" and a note about the skipping of the one song - both explained below.

The DJ tried calling twice before the wedding and received voicemail messages each time and finally reached client a few days prior. We were told only to call after 7pm which didn't give us much flexibility on times to call since we really don't like to call after 8:30 pm.

DJ started on time! Our policy for arrival is roughly 1 hour prior to start time - pretty standard in the DJ industry. The DJ arrived at 4:40 for a 5:30 (50 minutes prior to start time). We know this because the coordinator called asking where he was at that time and he was at the loading dock (which nobody bothered to check). He was set up and ready to go 10 minutes before the contract start time. He played an extra 30 mintues because he did not want any confrontations on their wedding day and since he normally plays a few minutes extra anyway it was no big deal. It was in no way because he was late.

Song that skipped was "Your Song (Moulin Rouge/Ewan McGregor)" and although we did not have problems during soundcheck, it did skip during the reception. Rarely (if ever) has this happened and not sure why it did. Our apologies for that.

Regarding the last dance, the only place that was noted was on the timeline which was given to the wedding coordinator that they hired. He did not see it because she had the timeline and we were given specific instructions to let the coordinator run everything. We were given 30 songs to play and all those were played including two songs that were noted on our planning form under "special instructions" which were Viva La Vida" for introductions and "Virginia Reel" after the cake cutting. Not sure why the bride and groom would not list the last dance there or the request list. The DJ should have asked if there were any other songs they wanted played and maybe it would have come up.
