Rich was absolutely fantastic - he met with us to get an idea about what we wanted and we could tell from the first meeting that we wanted to work with him. We canceled other meetings we had lined up and have no regrets! We met once more before the big day, he went through what we wanted, gave us tips on things to think about throughout, and assured us that he intended to be our coordinator and take care of all the details - and he did just that! We had him be our DJ as well as put together a slideshow to play during dinner, which people are still talking about! Rich had people on the dance floor nonstop the entire night, and with very little direction from us - we trusted he'd feel the crowd out and he did a great job of that! Highly recommend Essence Entertainment!!

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 absolutely amazing! He really went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was everything that we had dreamt of. He met with us at the venue the week of the wedding to go over the schedule, music selection, and uplighting options. There he told us that once the ceremony was over, we no longer needed to worry because this was our time to celebrate and that he would manage all of the scheduling from there. He also told us to make sure that we step away and take some time to ourselves to take everything in because this day was about us. This was HUGE because it showed that Rich genuinely cares about his clients. We received so many compliments on the music and his personality. Personality aside - the music was excellent and the dance floor was full the entire time. One of our friends who was in the wedding party ended up booking Rich for her wedding, too because he did such an amazing job. He really is the best!

Rich is an amazing DJ and MC. I am so happy we chose him and his team for our wedding. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure our day went exactly how we pictured it would go! Our wedding planner actually sent him to the wrong location for our ceremony and he RAN over to our ceremony site to make sure everything got set up on time. I always got the sense that he really cared about my husband and I, and that he wanted us to have a blast/exactly the the type of day we wanted. If you're deciding on whether to book Rich or not, JUST DO IT. Oh! And the photo booth is huge- it's awesome!

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.
