Rich did an awesome job coordinating and DJing our wedding. He is the type of guy that will go the extra mile to ensure your day runs as smooth as possible. We had a few special requests of custom mixes and songs played on cue and he absolutely nailed it. He does a great job keeping your party on schedule and keeping your guests on the dance floor having a great time. I highly recommend Rich for your next party!

Rich was amazing to work with!!!!
My husband I are both Bulgarian but have lived in the US for many years, so when it came to the music at our wedding we wanted to have something for everyone (Bulgarian music to represent our culture) and new EDM music that we and our friends listen to all the time.
Both of us were afraid that if we overdo it with one type of music either our Bulgarian friends and family would not have fun or our American friends will feel out of place.
Rich was amazing in helping us find that balance. He took the extra time to email back and forth with us and schedule extra meetings in person to ensure that our wedding was blast.
He was able to smoothly incorporate both cultures for our big day, so that no one was feeling out of place or bored.
We made a fantastic choice with Essence Entertainment and we could not have asked for a better DJ for our Special Day.

Many Thanks,
Toni and Svet :-)

Rich and his company was extremely flexible and understanding. He did anything he could to accommodate our requests and make our day feel special and personalized. We always had people on the dance floor all night long, which was my biggest concern, but Rich did not let us down, it was a great party! The photo booth was also a blast, I wish I had more time to actually go in it...best piece of advice is as the bride and groom, use our photo booth first before your guest come in to the reception! There's no way we would have gotten other photos...we were all over the place the rest of the night!

Rich and his team were fantastic from day one! Throughout the planning process Rich was very patient and helpful as we planned for our special day. The tools that Essence provides are also extremely helpful at ensuring all of details are communicated with your DJ ahead of time, including your song preferences. A couple months ahead of our big day, Rich realized he had a family conflict and said his next best DJ in the company would be providing DJ services for our wedding. While we were slightly bummed, Rich did offer us free uplighting for our entire reception room due to the change, which he definitely did not have to do. Our reception room looked beautiful and Casey did a great job the night of our wedding! The only hiccup was on some timeline adjustments, but overall everything went as great as one could hope for. I would highly recommend Rich and his team for your wedding day. You will not be disappointed!

Absolutely an amazing company! Tom, our mc/dj, never was rushed at any meeting or phone call. All our questions were answered. Even provided an excellent wedding favor to go along with our photo booth. Up lighting was worth the upgrade and helped make our venue look exceptional! We had nothing but rave reviews about music and photo booth size. We had great ease our entire reception and no worries.

If I could give more than a 5.0 rating I would. I couldn't have asked for more then what I received. Rich was very professional with us starting with the first visit at his office all the way through to our big day. He helped us out with everything we asked. Ranging from his personal opinions on a playlist, to even as far as helping us out with a timeline of events on our wedding date. Never once did he make me feel like i was being a nuisance, even though I'm sure I was at times! After he helped prepare us for everything, he executed everything flawlessly on the big day and I couldn't have asked for anymore. He even went as far as going up to my mother and commenting how great he thought the party went, which may seem like something small, but was truly an amazing thing to hear from my mother. I highly recommend Rich for any events you need a DJ for. He's a stand up guy and a true professional. Thanks again!

Rich and his team did a wonderful job at our wedding. They played every song we requested and made sure everyone was having a great time. The lighting and sound was also very good. We did the name in light which everyone loved and the uplighting of the room which also looked amazing. The service was very professional and helpful which is very imprtant when planning a wedding. All of our guests were on the dance floor the whole night and did not want to leave. It's been months since our wedding and everyone is still talking about how much fun they've had and how much they've danced. Thank you Essence Entertainment for making our special day even better. We will definitely use your services again.

This was the best decision we made for our wedding!! Tom was the absolute best!! We had two DJS and used their photobooth! It all was fantastic and perfect!! He kept everyone out on the dance floor all night long and played all the songs we requested. My husband and I loved everything about this company. They put 100% effort into your and your special day! We wanted my uncle to sing out first dance song and Tom worked with my uncle to make that happen and it was awesome! Not enough good things to say about this company!!!
