MaryMonica Music was recommended to us by our wedding coordinator for our May 2013 wedding. She suggested DJ Chris by name (he plays her holiday party every year), so we trusted her personal experience with the DJ and the company. We met MM once at our coordinator's studio, but didn't feel the need to have a face-to-face with DJ Chris prior to the wedding - we just sent our list of songs and music tastes. And then the wedding day came... The first "win" for DJ Chris was the first group dance song of the night. My best friend and Man of Honor mentioned in his speech that our friendship began over the lyrics to "I've Had the Time of my Life", and he buttoned his toast with another reference to the song. When the first group dancing song came on, it was "I've Had the Time of my Life" - my best friend, my husband and I had an incredibly special moment on the dance floor before being joined by the rest of the guests. DJ Chris had been listening.

Once the dance floor opened, it was packed until they kicked us out. Our music styles are a little old school - I like 50's and 60's R&R, which doesn't exactly lend itself to dance parties beyond Sock Hops and Socials. But DJ Chris created the most incredible mash ups with Motown and Funk (my husband's faves) and more modern crowd pleasers. It was truly incredible. At one point I was dancing to some good old rock & roll, thinking "I'm dancing to music I actually know the words too! And so is everyone else!"

It was such a special day, and DJ Chris exceeded all expectations. Thank you!

I worked with MaryMonica Music for my wedding and could not have been happier with that choice. With cost effective pricing, many entertainment options and a great team to work with, what more could you ask for? I selected Chris Somera as my DJ and he was incredibly professional and fun to work with. He made sure his time with us would be exactly what my husband and I wanted. He was a great addition to the wedding festivities and one that I would suggest to anyone looking for great entertainment!

We booked our wedding on The Odyssey, and part of the package includes a DJ - this was through MaryMonica Entertainment. We didn't meet with anyone prior to the wedding, but we didn't have to. We were assigned to Alex, their "resident russian" and he was absolutely fantastic!

Alex was a great DJ and also did an awesome job MCing the introductions and any other announcements. We had an awesome party on the dance floor and this was because of Alex!
