Matt was wonderful!! He met with us multiple time at multiple locations before the wedding so he knew exactly what we wanted. He was definitely more than just a dj, he kept everything during the ceremony and reception flowing smoothly and kept us on time. All of my guests commented on the playlist for the dancing and how wonderful it was. He definitely went above and beyond for us and it turned out perfectly. He does most everything wirelessly which is great because there weren't cord for people to trip on and the ceremony didn't look like a concert with big speakers and stuff but still everyone was able to hear everything. It was perfect!!!

When we were looking for a DJ for our wedding, I had no idea how important this decision would be. Matt completely changed my thinking and hiring him was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding! Matt is not just a DJ but he is a wedding planner, a true party entertainer, and a mediator when things don't go as planned! When you hire Matt's Entertainment, you get him, you don't get a random DJ. He took the time to meet with us before the wedding, email us when we had questions, visit our venue beforehand, and when he came to our rehearsal dinner he played our songs to make the rehearsal feel more real! One of the things I don't think anyone will forget is his introductions of our wedding party! We chose music for each one of them and he told all of our guests who they were and why they were important to us. Our guests loved it and so did our wedding party! He really made our reception unforgettable and we had so many compliments on what a great job he did! I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Matt was the most amazing DJ. He is professional, hard working, reliable, and fun to work with. He truly cares that your day is perfect. He has many great ideas for a perfect reception. Our party kept going because of him. All our friends said our wedding was one of the best they had been to and it is because of Matt. He found music for us that we thought would be impossible to find. And his sound system is great. Our guest were actually able to hear our vows because of his set up. HIRE MATT, it will be the best money you spend. He loves his job and we love that he made our day perfect.

Future brides, If you want fully dedicated, jack of all trades, awesome Dj then Matt is your guy! I CAN'T even begin to explain how relaxed I felt knowing Matt was on board. He was so full of ideas and he helped us out every step of the way! :) He is the nicest guy around and takes his job seriously! He doesn't treat you like a client but a friend. He went above and beyond to realize my vision. I didn't know a wedding could be SO much fun. My guest to this day tell us that our wedding was THE most romantic, personal, flowed nicely and was so much fun! Matt is more than a DJ, he has so much experince that he helped us out with design and schedule of the ceremony and dinner...everything really :))) Not because he felt like he had to but because I trusted his opinion ! Matt's Entertainment will always be highly reccomend, he's the go to guy! Trust me, you will be a very satisfied customer! You too won't be able to stop raving about him :) I loved my wedding, the music, the entertainment, the lighting was absolutely beautiful and the happy guests!! HE IS WELL WORTH IT...<3

When we started thinking about our wedding, one of our goals was to have it be fun. We didn't want people's memory of our wedding to be "there was a nice ceremony, some food, then we had cake and left." Through helping us plan and acting as the DJ and Master of Ceremonies for the night, he created an atmosphere that allowed our guests to be involved and have fun.

One of Matt's greatest assets is his experience with weddings; he has seen a lot, so he has a sense of good wedding game ideas. He met with us multiple times to get to know us, and he was able to suggest ideas for the reception that fit our personalities. Moreover, he never pushed things on us or shooed away ideas of ours; he would share his input, but did not try to control the planning.

At the actual ceremony and reception, his genial personality shined as he interacted with our guests. He managed to be both professional and personable. He executed with ease the party game ideas we discussed during planning, and they didn't seem campy or forced. There was laughter, applause, and oohs & awws.

I strongly recommend Matt if you want a vibrant reception where everyone leaves thinking about how happy they are for you and how much fun they had.

Matt was the most helpful and caring vendor we hired for our wedding. He took the time to get to know us, our family and our wedding party. Most importantly he talked us through every aspect of our day to figure out how we envisioned it happening. At the end of the day, Matt was able to take our requests and our parents requests, and create an atmosphere for our ceremony and reception that was perfectly tailored to suit us. I couldn't have hoped for more!

Matt was an absolutely amazing MC. We had a mixed group of guests for our reception about half were used to receptions with lots of drinking and dancing, the others more used to a mellow reception focused mostly on eating the food and visiting with people. We also had a LOT of kids. So it was most important for me to be able to include everyone in the dancing, and to make sure that there was a wide variety of music being played.
I was amazed at how well everything went. My Aunt and Uncle who NEVER EVER dance at weddings (or any parties) were actually dancing. Everyone had an absolute blast.
Another thing I found really impressive is that Matt was completely flexible and willing to make modifications to our master plan as the reception was occurring. Some things took longer than anticipated so we opted to cut out several of the "special dances."
In addition to being amazing on the wedding day, Matt also spent a lot of time meeting with myself and my wedding planner to ensure that everything we wanted in our wedding and reception that he was involved in would be exactly how we wanted it. It's really nice to have a vendor who is so willing to cooperate and plan with your other vendors. This definitely helped our wedding turn out exactly how we wanted.

Matt truly made our day special! He is so professional throughout the entire process, from the first meeting, follow-up phone calls and meetings before the wedding, to the big day, Matt knows his stuff. He took so much stress off our shoulders. His attention to detail is remarkable! If you want a special song played, Matt will do his best to find it for you. He goes above and beyond what anyone could ever imagine in a wedding DJ/Entertainer.
