Chris is AWESOME! He made our reception exactly like we wanted - one big party!! Our guests made several comments on how fun the night was, and we owe much of that to Chris. He worked with us on every little detail from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception to make the entire day sound perfect. His knowledge of our venue really helped make the day and night run smoothly. We highly recommend Chris and Elite DJs!

Words cannot express how happy we are to have known of and used Elite DJ's!! Bryan was absolutely fantastic for our special day and night!! He was so much fun and was able to do a perfect job at highlighting the special moments of the evening and then turn our reception into a huge dance party!! Throughout the months leading up to our big day, Bryan was extremely flexible and made the planning process a complete breeze!! He completely eased our mind regarding the flow of the music during the ceremony, as well as, the order of events for the reception!! I give Bryan and Elite DJ's a 10/10!! They made our big day even more special than it already was. We have received several compliments on how much fun the reception was and how the DJ new how to keep the party going!!! :-) A big thank you to Bryan and Rlite DJ's!!!

Chris was our DJ- and he turned our wedding into PARTY! He brought a great energy to our reception and played great music to keep the dance floor busy. He got to know us as a couple and what kinds of music we wanted for the different portions of the evening, from cocktail hour, to dinner and dancing. Would highly recommend him for your event!

Chris Colton at Elite DJs was recommended to me by a friend of a friend, who used him at their wedding. They kept telling me that Chris was "so much more than a DJ!" and that "for all he does, his price can’t be beat". Boy were they right!! And hiring Chris was one of the best wedding decisions we made!
Right off the bat, Chris took the time to hear what my fiancé and I were looking for - from music, to priorities, to budget. He was super responsive, answered all of our questions and never made it seem like we were annoying him (with numerous calls, texts, emails, etc.). When we couldn’t put into words what it was we were looking for – Chris did. Having someone with so much experience is invaluable.
On the day of our wedding, Chris showed up early, and even though he got a huge curve ball thrown at him since we had to go to “Plan B” for the ceremony due to the rain, still managed to seamlessly set up his DJ station while also working as an on-site coordinator – helping direct guests, getting everyone seated, organizing the bridal party, etc. Chris even snapped the most PERFECT photo during the ceremony and instantly posted it on Facebook tagging me – he thinks of everything!
At the reception he had everyone on the dance floor the entire night, which is basically what every couple hopes for. Have the dance floor packed and make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. In addition to the great music, Chis was working the dance floor himself (he’s not a DJ that just stands behind the table and takes requests!), gathering big groups of people and taking photos and videos of people dancing.
Fast forward to the end of the night – wedding is over and people are leaving, where is Chris? Helping to get people to the shuttles, bringing the left over sweet trays to my family, and mingling with guests. My fiancé and I got so many compliments on our day of coordinator/wedding planner/DJ.
All in all – hire Chris. You wont regret it!

When you plan a wedding you work with many, many vendors and I can easily say that Chris was the best. Honestly, probably my favorite part of our wedding was that the dance floor was hopping ALL NIGHT, and we owe that entirely to Chris. He has the ability to read a crowd and make sure he has just the right song ready to go.
Aside from being a great DJ, Chris was also easy to work with. He had some forms that made things easy and organized and he was very accommodating when we wanted to meet with him. He took our requests to heart and worked to make our wedding exactly how we wanted it by making the right announcements and letting us decide on a “must play” and “do not play” list (both my husband and I had seen some DJs at wedding lately who seemed to be making it all about them or came off as cheesy and Chris didn’t do either). Finally he was great with our other vendors, making sure the photographer was ready or dinner was served before moving to the next part of the night.
Overall I cannot rate Chris highly enough and I guarantee you will not go wrong by booking him for your event.

Elite DJs made our wedding night the best night of my life! Our DJ Chris asked us prior to the wedding day what we wanted to hear most and he made sure to play it all. He was so energetic and really got the crowd going. The dance floor was full all night and everyone love his style. I would definitely recommend him to any couple out there still looking for a DJ. He also did our ceremony music since we got married outside and it was just beautiful.

Chris was absolutely amazing!!! A week or two before the wedding he sent us a detailed survey to find out exactly what kind of music we wanted for each part of our wedding, then we met with him in person to go over everything. I've known Chris for a few years so I knew we were going to be in good hands, but after sitting down to discuss the wedding I knew he was going to help us pull off exactly the fun and energized feeling that we were going for. He honored our "No play list" hit every one of our "must plays" and most importantly kept everyone dancing the whole night. I can't say there was ever that moment that inevitably happens at so many weddings were a "dud" song comes on and suddenly everyone is high-tailing it off the dance floor. Each song flowed right into the next, attracting our guests of all ages to the dance floor. Over the past few weeks I've had so many family and friends remark just how much fun they had on the dance floor and I honestly believe that could not have happened with any other DJ. Oh- and he snapped some of my favorite pictures of the whole day!!! So thank you Chris, we are so lucky to have had you at our wedding!! -Lena & Nick

Chris was recommended to me by a co-worker who promised me that he would be the absolute highlight of our wedding reception. He did not disappoint! Our party was AMAZING! We easily had more than 100 people left in the room nearing the end of the night. My husband's nearly 80-year-old grandmother was on the dance floor the entire night, as was the entire bridal party! Chris did an excellent job of following our lists, listening to guest feedback, and reading the room to keep people of all ages happy and moving! He was so professional, friendly, and fun throughout the night. He even came up to my husband and I during cocktail hour and offered to grab us drinks.

We had our reception at Eaglewood Resort and Spa and, although unfamiliar with this site, Chris did a great job consulting with staff beforehand in order to make sure everything went smoothly. He was flexible when our cocktail hour was not only moved indoors, but extended to be more of a cocktail 2-hour when our reception pavilion FLOODED! The resort paid Chris to stay to make up for the delay and he was more than accommodating. I cannot say enough great things about Chris!! We will recommend him to every newly engaged couple we know for years to come! Our wedding night was unforgettable, and Chris was undoubtedly a key component!!
