Mark did an amazing job at our wedding and was both easy to work with and very professional. My husband and I were doing a "DIY wedding" and of course all of the details and planning of it came snowballing down as our special day approached near. Mark, was very understanding, very organized, and helped us keep on track with his follow up and reminder emails/phone calls. Even when we placed in requests of non-popular songs 5 days before our wedding, Mark was able to work his magic, find our requested songs, and play them during our wedding. Everyone enjoyed the music at our wedding and continued to talk about it in the days to follow. When we couldn't find pins for our money dance, Mark was there to save the day with a bundle of pins. When we were lost in conversation with our guests and didn't know what time it was, Mark was able to find us, patiently wait for us, and then politely ask us if we should go on ahead with our written agenda or prolong it a bit. He was very flexible and understanding, and very keen to making sure all of our needs were being met (even on our wedding day). I would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ or master of ceremony. Thanks again!

By far the best decision we made for our wedding. If you are looking for a talented, flexible, and knowledgeable DJ, Mark Welch should be your choice. He did an incredible job accommodating all of our crazy requests throughout the planning process and was a critical part in the success of the event running smoothly.

I was very particular about my DJ because I wanted a DJ who could stay true to playing clean family music but also played music that everyone could dance to. I am extremely happy with Mark Welch's entertainment. He provided my family and I with a lot of input and suggestions to help the wedding reception run smoothly, very receptive to our needs and expectations, flexible, fun, and affordable! I had a lot of customized requests because of my cultural traditions and he stayed true to them. We were very blessed to have him part of our wedding and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!

Mark was the DJ for my wedding this weekend and it was one of the best decisions we made! Mark was the first vendor we booked, probably about 9-10 months before the wedding and was prompt in meeting with us and getting us information to start logging into his site so we could browse music, add them to our primary and secondary request list, and even had the ability to search by things like "Top 90s Songs", "Top 80s Songs", "Top Recessional Songs", etc... He was responsive when we had requests/questions, and flexible when we had some outside-the-box ideas.

Then came the day-of the wedding, Mark kept to the schedule, helped organize things like the bridal party's line-up, getting the crowd worked up for the first announcements, and wrangling everyone to their seats when they needed to be seated. Everything he did throughout the night kept everything moving along, running smoothly, and high spirited.

Can't recommend Mark enough and would give 6/5 if possible!

Where do I start!! Mark welch has to be the best Dj I have ever seen!! He knows exactly what to do in any situation! This review is a little late but better late then never!! :) Mark was the Dj for my wedding on 7/6/13! He kept the entire wedding day rolling as smooth as ever! He had all the best music and knew exactly what to play at the perfect time! He was very professional and on time which is a MAJOR plus!! The thing my husband and I LOVED best is he kept all of our guests entertained and engaged the entire time! I still have people calling me to get his information! He keeps everyone engaged and has some amazing ideas for little games such as the shoe game. We wanted to do a little surprise dance during dinner and he played the song at the perfect time! He made everyone more than comfortable, and I can't thank mark enough for the Amazing, Perfect job he did! He has a very easy to use planning system on his website so everything leading up to the wedding was a breeze! Mark was always available when we needed him and he always got back to us in a timely manner. I would HIGHLY recommend Mark Welch to anyone who needs a Dj for a party or a wedding he is the perfect one for the job!! Thank you so much mark you are the best!!

Congratulations on your Best DJ award from Wedding Wire, it certainly deserved. Having done both my daughters weddings and both saying theirs was a perfect wedding speaks to your professionalism and your detail oriented approach to what can be a very stressful time. Guests to both my daughters weddings have said it was the best wedding they had ever attended and I believe that was in large part due to you. Thank you Mark!

Mark was fantastic at our wedding. We had some specific requests for Persian music to get sprinkled throughout the night. At one point he transitioned from a traditional song into a Flogging Molly song and the whole crowd loved it. My in-laws had been teaching our friends to dance, then our friends got a chance to teach them the ways of Irish bars.

His website is a GREAT resource, and let us browse through his collection of music, reminded us of various events that needed music (bouquet, cake cutting), and was a good primer for meeting with him in person. We requested an obscure cover version of a song that he didn't have, and he got it for us.

We also had requested that he skip all of the wedding cliches - No "YMCA," No "We Are Family" - because we wanted it to be our wedding, not just A wedding. Even with the limitations, he played music that everyone knew and loved all night. He was adaptable (moving the schedule ahead so grandma could see cake cutting before leaving), enthusiastic (getting people on the dance floor for group dance pictures), and inventive (he played the UCLA fight song when a guest told him that my wife and I met in college). It was a great night, and he was more than just the soundtrack for it - he helped orchestrate it.

The only DJ that had already worked our venue before. Other DJs were either clueless on what was needed or said that it was too complicated for them. Mark was so organized and prepared for every preplanning meeting we had. I really appreciated that a lot! He got people dancing and played great music!
