If we could give 1,000 stars they would all go to Lovesick.

When we began planning our wedding my fiance was anti-any DJ. And I couldn't blame him, we were both weary of paying a lot of money for a cheesy voice on a microphone handing out inflatable guitars.

And then we found Lovesick.
And then we got really, really excited about our wedding.

These guys get it, and then come the day of your wedding they blow it out of the water.

We hired Lovesick for both our DJ and Cinematography. Tom and Jon really understood the type of wedding we were hoping for, offered some awesome ideas and brought everything together seamlessly. They were also a ton of fun to work with.

We didn't want our day to end, and they are a big reason why. Thankfully, we have the amazing videos they created to remember it by.

We had Lovesick DJ our wedding reception and they had everyone dancing the entire time - the dance floor was packed! my husband and I had a pretty eclectic mix of songs that we wanted to hear, and they did an amazing job creating a playlist that catered to everyone's taste at a 200 person wedding, while also weaving in our favorite bands so the entire time it still felt like us! Tom was so awesome and so helpful in creating our timeline and flow for the evening - we absolutely loved working with him. My family was very much of the mind-set that having a live band is the only way to go for a wedding, but after experiencing Lovesick at our wedding they now think having a DJ is better!

Lovesick Inc was absolutely wonderful! We used them as our DJ as well as our cinematographer. We received so many compliments from them throughout the wedding as they really knew how to compile our music choices with what would get people up and dancing. They were very open to our eclectic music tastes and really made our song choices work for our wedding. There were a few songs that I hoped they would play (as I forgot to specifically request them) and was shocked when I heard them! Our guests were not only amazed by our DJ and music selection but also our video! We have received the 3-5 minute first look and cried while watching it quite a few times. We were taken right back to our wedding day while watching that video and we cannot wait for the full length version. They are very easy to work with and very accommodating. I would highly recommend Lovesick Inc as they are not only a great DJs and cinematographers but wonderful people.

Loved these guys!! They did a phenomenal job. Highly recommend them. They were awesome for the following reasons:
- I was nervous/concerned about all sorts of things related to music, microphones, dancing, timing, etc. I spent 20 minutes on the phone with Tom, and when I hung up, I felt FANTASTIC. I was absolutely sure that everything was going to be AMAZING. And it WAS! He was incredibly understanding, reassuring, took all my concerns to heart and immediately came up with creative solutions and recommendations (which were all exactly right!!!). He made the planning part a lot of fun. It is clear he has done this a million times and knows what works, but he is also a people person and an absolute pleasure to talk to.
- We had an eclectic assortment of music requests from various family members and weren't sure how/where to fit everything in. Tom and Jon did a great job at finding appropriate times for various types of music and had people out dancing. Lots of compliments from guests on the music!
- I had asked Tom where they would set up during our outdoor ceremony and he told me "in a bush." I have to admit, I actually have no idea where they were because I never saw them during the ceremony or cocktail hour. But the music was playing! So I guess they really were were hidden in the bushes somewhere!
- They implemented everything we discussed perfectly, did not forget anything.
- They are responsive and professional. I never had any difficulty getting in touch with them. Their assistant was great at providing info and confirming payment receipts, etc.
These guys are really terrific. Cannot say enough good things!

Lovesick was our DJ for our wedding in July -- but they were really so much more! In the months leading up to the wedding, Adam helped us work through our day. Whenever we wanted, we he was happy to help us decide what music would work and what wouldn't, and really encouraged us to put our unique spin on our wedding.

He did the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He helped us set the tone and, most importantly, the flow and schedule of the wedding. We really wanted it to be a big party -- and he found music that helped us get there. From the first dance to the last - he kept the party going and made sure we got to hear the music that we wanted.

Thanks again, Adam (and Lovesick!). We are so happy that you were party of our day.

Tom and John DJ'd our wedding. They are consummate MCs--true professionals at keeping it all moving. From prep to the day of, they helped us get exactly what we wanted. Everybody was on the floor all night because Lovesick know how to figure out your taste from a play/do not play list and know how to please the crowd in the moment. And they got a table full of DJs up and dancing without any "I would haves." Can't recommend them enough.

Nothing short of AMAZING! I don't even know where to begin!! We used Lovesick as our videographer, which was the best decision we made! From the first time meeting Jon at Surf Taco to the wedding day, everything was absolutely perfect. The whole staff was extremely friendly and professional who really LOVES what they do, because it shows! We absolutely loved working with all of them and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great company who is all about customer service, very professional and really amazing at what they capture and are able to produce--we are anxiously awaiting our "first look" preview to our video & we know it will be amazing! Highly highly highly recommend!

Thanks to Lovesick for everything you did for us to make our day extra special!!

Adam was the best DJ we could have asked for. For our wedding my husband and I were not looking for the traditional wedding music service. We wanted someone who understood all genres of music. Adam had us research and think about the music we liked. He then sat down with us for an hour or so and went through so many different songs to see how we felt. At the wedding he is extremely sensitive to the crowd. He would change music depending if people were on the floor or not. He takes his art very personally and it shows in his work. At the end of the night everyone was telling us how wonderful our DJ was. They felt that all the music they like was played and no one felt pressured on the dance floor. We could not be happier with Adam.

Adam is the best! Guests asked if we made a giant playlist for him because his musical selection was EXACTLY what we like to listen to. Adam spent over an hour with us just getting to know us and our taste in music. He is like a human pandora, figuring out our likes and dislikes like that. He made us feel confident during the reception that we would never have to ask him to play something specific, we just waited for it and sure enough he put it in on his own. There was NO ONE sitting down, everyone was dancing all night!
