Daniel exceeded every expectation we had! I knew after talking with him on the phone that he would make our wedding that much more special but I didn't know just how much until our wedding day. He gave us bug repellent, had microphones, announced everything and adjusted things to our needs and wants throughout the night. He is the reason everything continued to run smoothly throughout the night and every one of our guests loved him and thought he was just as amazing as we did. We will be referring him to anyone who will listen for a very long time!

Daniel did a fantastic job of helping our guests enjoy their night. We didnt need to worry about a single thing. If we did have a question or concern, when we voiced it to Daniel he always knew exactly what to do.

From start to finish, Daniel was exceptional. He went above and beyond in his role as a DJ and made our wedding day worry-free and perfect. He assisted us by answering our many questions and was flexible about discussing the order of events. The "Love Story" Daniel prepared was such a unique part of our wedding and he did an excellent job in preparing it. We were extremely pleased with everything he did for our wedding and we absolutely recommend him as a DJ.

Matt is the absolute best DJ ever, and we thank him so much for handling our whole reception just perfectly! He made us feel like we had nothing to worry about because of his interaction with the crowd and how well he took care of us. The order and manner of how he played the songs was just icing on the cake... just perfect! His professionalism plus great personality are what made our day so special!

We are extremely satisfied with your service! You were one of the few people who did everything you said you would do. After dealing with many different vendors, I know how rare that is. Your planning before the event made everything go very smoothly, and all our guests had a great time because you did such a great job. You were very easy to work with, and we got a lot of compliments on your job!

Matt played the songs we wanted, which were a little atypical for most weddings. He was very insightful and knew the vibe we were going for and played the songs we suggested, plus others that we love in a great order to set the tone of the evening. He also did a fantastic job with the Love Story, which everyone really appreciated. People are still commenting about how fun it was to hear our perspectives come together. Overall, Matt was very professional and made the evening come together beautifully. We had a ball and couldn't be happier with the music and the Lighthouse service! Matt, thank you so much for all of your good work that helped make our wedding so much fun! It was great to get to know you, and we are so happy with the way our wedding turned out. Thanks so much... our wedding was fun everything we hoped and dreamed. You are worth every penny!

We had an absolute blast! Every guest weve talked with since the wedding has told us that our wedding was the most fun reception they have ever been to. We loved being able to interact with our DJ the entire night, rather than just having someone pushing buttons to play music. Thanks for traveling such a long distance for our wedding!

Daniel did a wonderful job at my wedding!! He was very helpful during all the planning, and communicated well. He played great music and the "love story" he did was wonderful. We got so many compliments about it! He is more expensive than other DJ's, but he did a fabulous job and I would most definitely use him again!
