Chris was an amazing DJ for our wedding. The one thing I was picky about with my wedding was the music. Chris not only abided to my "do not play" list (sorry Chris, it might have been a bit long) but he played songs from bands I listed that he had to research himself. I love indie music and smaller bands. He found wonderful songs from those small bands and it made my night!

Chris is also extremely flexible. Our venue was at my father-in-laws house and we did not have an easy way to play music for the dinner outside. He was able to work with the floor plan and it sounded as though it was planned like that all along! He provided beautiful dance floor lighting, MC'd the reception flawlessly, and even played some spontaneous Arabic music at the request of my husbands family.

I cannot recommend this DJ enough, particularly if you are picky with your music and want to hear what YOU want. He listens, and more importantly he makes everyone have fun!

Formal Affair is fantastic! Chris is the best DJ I've ever seen! He is professional, flexible and very easy to work with. We had one sit down meeting before the wedding and I knew within the first few minutes that Chris understood exactly what we wanted. He played every song we asked him to play and helped get the party going and kept it going! I was sending Chris songs right up till a day before the wedding and they all made it in there. My bride and I didn't have to worry about a thing. I could not be more positive about Formal Affair!!! Chris, youda best!!!

To put it simply, Chris is amazing!!! He met with us before the wedding to get a good idea of what kind of music we were looking for and when it came to the day of the wedding, he was on time and ready to go! He did our ceremony and reception music and it was all done perfectly! During the reception everyone was up on their feet dancing to the music - and Chris would even join in dancing from time to time! I would reccomend Formal Affair for any of your DJ needs! Thanks again Chris!!!!

With our wedding reception being a multicultural event, Chris did an exceptional job in planning out the music, lighting and MC. The mark of a great DJ is keeping the dance floor filled with happy guests enjoying themselves. Chris did exactly. We would utilize his service again for future events and highly recommend him to our friends and family.

Chris was a fantastic addition to my daughter's wedding reception. He provided us with guidance and suggestions as to how to work through the first dance, cake cutting, etc. We heard noting but rave reviews from our guests concerning the background music he played prior to the bridal party arriving at the reception location. He can read a crowd and play exactly what is needed.
The biggest impression he made was his professional appearance and actions. He told us early on that this party was not about himself, but about the bride and groom, and he kept that promise. I would highly recommend Chris for any event and would use him again if ever a need arises.

Chris was recommended to us by a friend and we are SO glad we went with him! Our wedding and reception was during the day so we were wondering whether people would be out on the dance floor but Chris was absolutely wonderful about getting people up and moving. He accommodated our and our guest's requests and made everything flow seamlessly. He was extremely professional from day one. Everything from the dancing, the announcements, the "shoe game" we requested to the background music was perfect. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun and energetic event!

For my wedding I wanted someone who could keep people on the dance floor and having fun. Chris was able to do that plus get people that I never would have suspected at my wedding to dance. It was the right amount of every genre and era of music. It was easy setting up songs with him, he came to me throughout the wedding to know queues for when and what was going to happen. I enjoyed his services and would highly recommend him to any one for their wedding or event.

Chris did my August 24 wedding just a few weeks ago and I cannot express my gratitude for this fellow. Not only were me and my new husband amazed by the professionalism of him but long after the wedding I had several friends and family members asking who the DJ was and how awesome he was. I had special instructions for a certain area of a song as we walked back up the aisle and he nailed without me ever having to meet with him beforehand. I recommend Formal Affair to any bride, you not only will find him within your budget but you will find he is all around very nice professional individual.

Chris was a phenomenal DJ...as always. My sister contracted him for her wedding reception DJ back in 2009. Since then, he has been the DJ at two other weddings I have attended and most recently, the DJ at my wedding this past August. After dealing with all the other stresses that comes to planning a wedding, Chris was an absolute breath of fresh air. He was incredibly easy to work with and contacting him was never a problem. He responded to my many emails within minutes of sending them. At the reception, he was unbelievable. He never missed a beat and played many of the songs on my playlist. Being that he is a musician himself, he did a great job cutting and editing our first dance and mother-son dances. He was also great about taking requests from our guests. His Master of Ceremony skills are unbeatable and so inviting to our guests. One of my favorite things about Chris is that he always seems like he is having a great time doing his job! He joins in and teaches the line dances and always has a smile on his face. I would recommend Chris time and time again!

Chris DJed my wedding reception Sunday, Sept 2 at the Westin and he was.... awesome! He couldn't have been easier to work with prior to the event. I found him fairly last minute but he met with me right away and instantly put me at ease; everything felt like it would be under control. He is exceptionally professional, friendly, and experienced. I've had many friends and family comment to me and my husband about how great the music was at our wedding. He had excellent suggestions for us but NEVER crossed the line and truly made the event all about me and my hubby. Thanks Chris!

Chris is THE DJ to have for any event. He was most accomodating and flexible. Because where the event was held had no phone service I wasnt able to email him a playlist and I was really concerned about what he was going to play. My husband met with him while he was setting up and discussed music choices. Chris did everything perfect he played the perfect music with out having a clue to what I wanted and he kept the party going with dancing too. I would reccomend Formal Affair Professional DJ services, LLC to anyone who wanted a carefree, wonderful experience. I will definitely be using him again for another event!! Thanks Chris!!

If you're looking for a DJ that keeps the guests dancing then Chris is the DJ for you. Chris played all the songs we requested, responded to any e-mails within a day, and put up with our procrastination leading up to the wedding.

We provided around twenty songs that we wanted to hear during dinner, many of which he probably had to track down as they were indie rock songs. Chris was able to play all of these, not to mention we sent him the list only five or six days prior to the wedding. He also helped out with suggestions on the timing of toasts, cake cutting, first dances, etc.

Nothing but great things to say about him, and he has a great rate compared to other DJs in the area. He was also willing to stay longer if the party continued with no extra charge. We received several compliments on him from our guests during and after the reception.

Chris was able to play all of these, not to mention we sent him the list only five or six days prior to the wedding. He also helped out with suggestions on the timing of toasts, cake cutting, first dances, etc.

Nothing but great things to say about him, and he has a great rate compared to other DJs in the area. He was also willing to stay longer if the party continued with no extra charge. We received several compliments on him from our guests during and after the reception. Read less

Chris was the DJ at my brother's wedding last year, so we booked him for my wedding recently. He was very accommodating, played all the songs we requested, and made sure that everyone on the dance floor was having a blast.
He was also very helpful before the wedding: we had forgotten to pick a groom/mother song, and he made sure it was simple to get in touch with him last minute. We also had an uncommon song we wanted for our first dance song and weren't sure how to get him a copy, but Chris was able to pull it down from youtube. Working with Chris was stress-free and we knew our reception music was in the hands of a professional.

We contracted with Chris last year for my son's wedding and were so pleased that we asked him to be the DJ at my daughter's wedding recently. He was very professional, well prepared and easy to work with. He served as the MC announcing the changing events throughout the wedding reception and kept the guests happy throughout. He provided a wide variety of music which included easy listening during our dinner and upbeat (Greek and American)dance music that kept people up on their feet dancing the rest of the time. Thanks to Chris everyone had a fantastic and memorable time.

Great DJ to work with. I used Formal Affair for my first daughter's wedding in 2009 and had no hesitation to book him again for my second daughter's wedding this year. He really kept the party going and did everything we asked and more! Would not hesitate to book him again (I have another daughter!!) and would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a great wedding DJ!

From our first meeting with Chris we knew he was our DJ. He was very friendly and professional. I think we challenged him with our "country" music, but he was fantastic. He truly made our ceremony emotional and meaningful and our reception the party we had dreamed of!

He stayed until we were done dancing and was very aware of the music Chris and I wanted play while still satisfying our guests requests. He was very easy to work with and do everything you ask of him. His goal is to make sure you have a good time.

Throughout our reception, I felt like he was a long-time family friend!

Thank you Chris!

Chris provided excellent service, and we were very pleased with the overall service and outcome. We have gotten so many compliments about how the Chris maintained the flow of the reception, and what a good job he did. Chris was there early to setup and late to tear down but when the ceremony began he was in charge of the music for ceremony and reception where he kept everything flowing as we asked and made sure we had everything we needed. We were provided with top notch professionalism from the time I booked the service up until the last song at the reception. Chris not only kept the party flowing but kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! Chris is what every reception needs for a fun time - He even instructed some line dances so those of us who didn't know how to do the dance could learn what fun! We were truly pleased and would definitely use the Formal Affair Professional DJ services for future events. Thanks Chris for making our day even more special and memorable!

Chris was the perfect DJ. He made our wedding fun and laid back. I would have invited him to my wedding if he wasn't the one playing the music. So easy to work with even planning a wedding over 5 hours away. Everything ran smooth and he made it look so easy. He performed my ceremony music and receptions music. Top notch equipment and a very nice man. He is there to please the bride and groom and does an excellent job at it. He was there early to set up and even stayed late because the party kept going. You guys would be lucky to have him.

We loved working with Chris! Of all of our vendors, he way the easiest to work with, best at response time, and did everything we asked of him. He was there with suggestions when you needed them, and when our plans changed, even during the wedding, he rolled with it. He was even able to find less popular versions of songs that we wanted for the ceremony. After all was said and done, the only thing I regret is that our time on the dance floor was so short due to the way we planned out the ceremony, which Chris had nothing to do with. We've been acquainted with Chris for quite sometime and almost everyone in our circle of friends that has gotten married in the last few years had used Chris as their DJ. All the weddings have varied in style and size, yet no one has been disappointed. I highly recommend A Formal Affair!

We were beyond satisfied with Formal Affair DJ Services! Chris was very professional and easy to work with. He was always easy to reach, by both phone and email. My husband is Colombian, so we requested quite a few non-traditional wedding songs. Not only did Chris find all of the salsas, bachatas, and merengues we requested in advance, but he played them like a pro! He kept the reception moving and knew how to get people out on the dance floor. We all had an amazing time at the reception and we owe it to Chris!

I can't speak more highly of Formal Affair DJ Services. Chris, our DJ, was available to answer all of my emails, crazy questions and phone calls leading up to the big day. He showed up on time, was dressed professionally and did a great job interacting with our guests. He also made it clear up front that our wedding was about my husband and I and he was just there to enhance our day. We had complete freedom over the type of music that was played, when certain songs were played and the flow of the evening.

Formal Affair DJ played a vital role in making our day a huge success!

We're not music people, so we were so glad to have found Chris. He took it all from our hands with just a couple of suggestions of things we generally like and dislike. He accommodated all of our very strange requests, from a specific version of the Tarantella (Italian wedding dance), to a spur of the moment download of a Bavarian Oktoberfest classic. He led us in the line dances, and just made the party happen. We had a small wedding of about 85 people, but most of the time, every single person was on the dance floor! Thanks, Chris!!

He was everything we wanted in a DJ for our wedding reception and more. He made sure to have all of the songs that we wanted played ready to go, and made sure to take requests from the guests. He even used youtube to find one of our guest's very random song request. He makes sure that everyone is having a great time, and even gets out on the dance floor and has a good time himself! He had just the right amount of guest interaction to get everyone up and moving. I have been to some receptions where the DJ seems like he is trying to hard, Chris is a complete natural at what he does. He also emailed me the day before our wedding to ask if I wanted to use his free dance floor lights since we hadn't discussed having them before. The lights really made a difference! I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks so much for making our special day even more memorable!

He found out quickly what the guests danced to most and he kept the crowd going and having fun until late into the night. Everyone had a great time and the dance floor rarely was empty. Wonderful, wonderful wedding reception thanks to Chris Wagner! Friends of ours actually asked Chris for his business card for a future event they will be having. We would hire Chris Wagner anytime again. Great service, very professional, very personable and reasonable all at the same time :-) Thanks Chris for making our day a wonderful memory!

Choosing a DJ is the MOST important part of planning your wedding reception. Your cake, food, flowers, etc will not help you make memories of your special day.
We got SO lucky finding Chris. During the planning he was professional without being stuffy, personable, laid back, flexible, and I never had a worry about him or what to expect. When our bridal party had a slight issue and were an hour late arriving, Chris kept our guests informed and entertained. Then when the party got going, he kept the dance floor full... ALL night! He had all of the music we requested, played it at appropriate times and brought the dancer out of people that didn't know they had it in them! I have to add, I had many of my female friends asking me whether he was "available" also. If I were to arrange another occasion appropriate for a DJ, I would reschedule it if Chris wasn't available. I hope this helps!

Chris Wagner of Formal Affair DJ Services was amazing! Chris handled all of the MC duties and remained flexible throughout my daughter's wedding! Once we handed Chris the list of introductory and first dance songs, he knew what the tone of the whole evening was to be and played the music accordingly. As the evening progressed, he was able to gauge the age of the remaining guests and adjusted the music accordingly - read - once the older people left, the music took on the perfect tone for the mostly college-aged crowd! The party was a hit!!! I highly recommend Formal Affair for any event as I trust his ability to keep the crowd happy and the party going! He is a professional who went above and beyond everything we expected from a DJ for our daughter's wedding!

He found great music that fit our atmosphere and took any requests that we asked for. Nobody stopped dancing (for 3 hours!) He was also on hand last minute for our ceremony. Everything came out perfect and considering we didn't live in South Carolina, Chris was very good at responding to my emails and calls and flexible in meeting with us whenever we made visits prior to the wedding. I would recommend him to anyone!

But he also got out in the crowd and was dancing and helping our guests to have a great time. If I ever have another event where I will need a DJ, I will ask Chris. Five Stars! Read less

Hiring Chris was one of the BEST decisions we made about our wedding! He made it so much fun, and was so very helpful and sweet! He was even willing to Shag with my mom!!

We will definately be recommending him to ANYONE we know who is looking for a DJ.
Thanks so much Chris!!

Chris did a phenomenal job DJ’ing our wedding reception. He was there well before and after the event, nailed the pronunciation of everyone in our wedding party, and knew how to pace the party through music and announcing the highlights of the reception.

I even got a kick out of the fact that his mix of our final few songs had the dance floor shouting “One more song!" An encore for a DJ; not too shabby, Chris.

Chris made our event absolutely fantastic!! From the get-go, Chris was easy to work with, helpful, friendly, professional, and just a real down-to-earth family guy. This was one of the first things that we liked so much about him!

Our reception would not have been the same without Chris. One would think that being a DJ is as simple as playing songs from a play list, but it is a lot more than that. Chris was able to tell the mood of the event and know exactly which song to play to either slow things down or pick things back up! It really takes a talented and experienced DJ to be able to understand the dynamics of an event like that! And not only did he do a great job of playing music, but he did a great job of getting out there and having a good time with us and getting all of our guests excited! We truly enjoyed having him at the wedding!

We really can't say enough about the quality of services we received from Chris at Formal Affair. If you don't hire Chris for your event, you will REALLY be missing out!

Thanks for everything!!

I really cannot say enough positive things about Chris! My husband and I are so pleased with how well our wedding reception went, and it was largely thanks to him! We had been to far too many wedding receptions with TERRIBLE DJs, and were wary the same thing would happen to us. All my fears were assuaged when I met with Chris--he is professional, flexible, and both open to your own ideas and comes up with plenty of his own. My husband and I both have very picky tastes in music, and he adhered to our requests perfectly, while remaining flexible enough to let the crowd request songs, and gauging the crowd mentality and choosing songs that would best keep the energy up. We also asked for several slightly more obscure songs, and he happily found and played them for us. I cannot recommend Chris Wagner highly enough.

It is important to have a good DJ because i wanted the guests to have fun and enjoy their time at my wedding. the DJ i hired was very professional and he made sure everyone was having the time of their lives including us! He entertained us before the wedding to help us ease off the stress and excitement we encountered.

Chris was amazing from the get-go. He went out of his way to meet with us and accommodate our every need. At our wedding, Chris made the party. He played the right music at the right time, kept us on schedule (letting me know, as the bride, what needed to happen according to our timeline), and he would come out and dance with us! I could not imagine having anyone else at our wedding, other than Chris. He truly made our reception a celebration! Highly recommend Chris to every bride out there.

Chris was a great DJ at our reception. We had request each bridal party couple be introduced to a different song; Chris was more than happy to fulfill our request and ensure that each couple came out to the correct song my husband and I requested. Chris did a great job of keeping our family and friends dancing all through our reception. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ or price ;)

I was super nervous about finding the right DJ, because we have all been to those weddings where there is a DJ, yet no one really dances because he does not set the right mood. After talking with Chris and hearing about him I knew immediately he was not one of those DJ�s. Chris asked for a list of songs that we liked to get the feel of what we wanted and played what we liked at all the right times. With Chris you know you are taken care of and don�t have to worry about making sure everything happens you just get to enjoy yourself! I think deciding on a DJ was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding!

Chris was spectacular. Above all else, I wanted the music at my wedding to be excellent. Since I'm very picky about music, I made a list of about 50 songs that I wanted played and 50+ bands and songs that I did not want played. Chris acquired every song that I requested, never complained about the pages of instructions, and incorporated them into his playlist perfectly. We even had a last minute request (during the wedding), and he downloaded the song while performing!

Throughout the event, Chris was extremely professional and a lot of fun. He announced things without a hitch (and our groomsmen and bridesmaids did not have easy names), reminded us about timing, and helped us fit everything in during the reception. When the reception was supposed to end, the entire crowd was still dancing and energized thanks to Chris, so he stayed an extra hour (another last minute request) to allow our guests to continue dancing. It was a blast - I have never seen a crowd so excited to keep dancing.

I could honestly not imagine any dj doing a better job - for any price. I have been to numerous weddings and events, and I have never seen a more professional, fun, and flexible dj.

Chris Wagner was pleasure to have as our DJ! I actually found him at my sister in law's wedding reception. We got his card and booked him right away! :) He did a great job, played all of our requested songs, had a microphone ready for the toasts, and for our friend to sing. Everything was very easy to set up with him. He is very friendly to work with and very professional. Everyone had a great time, he did a great job selecting songs that everyone loved!

Chris was the DJ at our wedding. The music was great. Everyone had a lot of fun dancing. He also has wireless speakers so we had music outside for our cocktail hour and then inside for the reception. We only had to meet with him once and he met us at a place that was convenient for us. I highly recommend having him at your wedding.
