Paul and Debbie were a saving grace! After a vendor falling through, they had our date available and offered a great photo booth, clean and fun props, and great personalities for an amazing price. I am so thankful for their help and very happy with our decision to use them for our wedding.

I did not use the DJ service only the photo booth. The photo booth was set up on time and there were no issues with the equipment. There was always a staff member on scene. The kids had a great time taking pictures and it was big enough to have a group of people take a photo together. Every body in the party loved the photo booth and had a great time.

Paul was great! My guests were very complimentary of both him and the photo booth. I was only going to do dance floor lighting and was very happy he suggested the room lighting too - it created the perfect atmosphere. The timelines and website were a great guide and helped keep my others vendors on the same page on how I expected the night to flow. The music links didn't work for me, but Paul made himself available with our crazy schedules (we work pretty late) to go over any detail we wanted. They were extremely patient with any last minute changes and happy to accommodate. He thought of things I wouldn't have and made sure everything ran smoothly.

The Photobooth was definitely worth it. Its large enough to fit handicapped people or very large groups. The curtains can open in different areas if needed- photo bomb. We did the used props and it was worth it! There were so many things to choose from and they were in great condition. Debbie was awesome with all my guests and my book was filled. I even received a disc after in the mail!

Everything about Paul was fantastic. Our guests loved everything about him. He was more helpful then the dining room manager at the venue. He basically walked us through everything, and offered advice to help make our wedding run smoothly. He was very knowledgeable about music, and knew what music to play for the type of guests we had.

Paul actually provided our photo booth and I don't see it listed here...anyway, he was WONDERFUL! My bridesmaids purchased this as a gift for me but, forgot the props. He came in a few minutes before the wedding and told me all the props were set up because he wanted me to have a wonderful wedding! Then, he was there to tell me when it was time to walk down the isle. When it was time for dinner, he took my plate to the table for me. At the end of the night, he came over to tell me which guests/family members to have come into the booth to get our pictures with so that we wouldn't be disappointed later on. Everyone raved weeks later about how terrific he was both professionally and personality wise! I would recommend this company to EVERYONE!

I cannot recommend Lightning Sound enough. Prior to our wedding we met with Paul twice--once as a consult and once more to finalize details. We were given the chance to make our own playlist, which was very important to us as we are Christians and only wanted clean music (no cursing or sex/drugs/rock&roll references). Paul was extremely accommodating, and he definitely upheld his promise to us. Throughout the entire process it was very apparent that he wanted to make our reception into everything we dreamed it to be. He also took great care to learn how to pronounce all the names of our family/wedding party, and this was no small task as I am Samoan and my husband is Sicilian--needless to say, we have very difficult names in our families. He did great--said them all perfectly. We also had a "dry" reception (no alcohol), so there were concerns that people might not be as uninhibited on the dance floor. However, this simply was not the case. Paul was highly entertaining, kept everyone engaged, picked great songs, made everything flow smoothly and there was a huge crowd on the dance floor the whole night. Now, we may be a little biased, but we've never had more fun at a wedding reception. Period. We will always remember how much fun we had with our family & friends during our reception. Thank you Paul & Debbie for everything!!!

Paul's services came highly recommended from multiple friends whose weddings I attended. I was impressed with Paul's skills at my friend’s weddings and was eager to have him MC/DJ at my wedding.


Quality of service:
Paul’s equipment is Bose and seemed to be very high end. His presentation is outstanding with regards to equipment looks and attire. I do have issues with the quality of the services I received. We hired Paul to setup music outside for pre ceremony, mic the officiant, setup a mic for my wife and I to speak our vows to the crowd, and to MC/DJ the reception. The mic for my wife and I speak our vows to the crowd did not work. My family let me know that they could not here our vows… -1. During the reception, there was a 5 second period where extremely loud feedback surged through the hall which instantly disturbed all guests. The hall went from happy/excited to dead silent and concerned. Lastly, some of his speakers were crackling/popping during the reception and did so for minutes on end. So much so that I asked Paul to fix the issue. I don’t really care what the issue was but I expected near perfection and believed Paul would deliver. Paul delivered sub-par services. C

Responsiveness:
Paul‘s responses to email were within 2-4 days of receiving them. I am satisfied with his responsiveness. B

Professionalism:
Paul was extremely professional in all interactions. A+

Value:
To be fair, I did not research other DJs. That said, I can’t compare his perceived value to others. For the amount we paid and the services received, the value is 4 stars. B

Flexibility
Paul was extremely flexible with regards to downloading and playing songs that he didn’t have in his stock. He was able to meet with us ad hoc. A+

We found out about lightning sound from 2 friends who had used them for their weddings. We first met with Paul at his home. We were immediately barraged by his dog who jumped all over my husband and I, the DJ did not make any attempt to stop his dog from doing this until almost 5 awkward moments had passed. The couch on which we were asked to sit to discuss the contract was covered in dog hair. The house reeked of dog. This is where he conducts all his business with his clients. Upon our second meeting with Lightning sound, we again met at his house- we spent some time discussing which songs we wanted for the anniversary dance, bouquet toss, etc. Paul was very receptive to our requests. I emphasized the fact that our wedding was to be a classic romantic evening and I did not need much of the traditional “ baseball sports announcer “ bit that you see from many dj’s do at weddings for introductions, announcements, etc. We also had a few songs that Paul did not already have in his music library. At this final meeting he told us that because he didn’t have them we would need to purchase them ourselves off Itune or some other music database. After this, we expressed to him that given the amount of money we were paying we expected him to do that for us. After a long reponse time back he emailed us to say he would be able to do it. At the ceremony, our DJ showed up promptly and with all of his equipment. On the same token, he appeared very sloppily garbed, sweating profusely and on top of that, the mic for my husband and I set up by Paul to speak our vows to our family and friends did not work.. Our vows fell on deaf ears due to his malfunctioning equipment. My parents sitting in the first row said they could barely hear me, my husband realizing the mic was not working spoke loudly so that all could hear but this shouldn’t have been his burden to bear. The rest of our family and friends on both sides later let us know that they could not hear our vows either. 2B continued

Hiring Paul to be our DJ was one of the best decisions that we made for our 9/13/13 wedding. He was organized, professional, fun and easy to work with. He responded to emails and requests right away and made suggestions for things that we were unsure of. During the ceremony he played all of the songs we wanted, none of the ones we didn't and kept people on the dance floor all night. He also took the time to make sure that my husband and I sat and ate our dinner while keeping us on schedule for the whole night. The photo booth he recommended was a HUGE hit. I can't recommend this vendor enough. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.

Paul was absolutely fantastic. From the moment we met with him, we felt comfortable and confident that he was the DJ for us. He wanted to make sure that things went the way we wanted them to be. His website was extremely helpful and very easy to use to help us plan. He had excellent song selection. He was a great MC. On top of all that, he checked on little details throughout the day so that we didn't have to think about them. He even came over to us when our food was being served and told us to sit down and eat. He helped the day run so smoothly! We could not be happier with Paul's service and would recommend him to anyone!
