My husband and I are so happy that we chose Mike Merlin Services as the DJ for our wedding. Mike was so easy to work with and always reassured us that everything would run smoothly. He also made himself available over the phone to have conversations as well. Our wedding guests all danced the night away- the dance floor at our venue was rather large and was full the entire evening. We were very impressed by his reasonable pricing and professionalism. Thank you Mike!

Mike Merlin is the reason our wedding reception ran so smoothly. Hiring him to DJ at our wedding was the best decision we made in our wedding planning. He was a pleasure to deal with in the months leading up to our wedding ... always professional, yet fun; easy to talk to, always approachable, and confident but not cocky. And once my wedding day rolled around, I didn't have to worry about anything. He was on top of every detail and executed our event exactly as we had discussed. His music selection was spot on for our crowd, and the dance floor was always crowded. It was just perfect. As soon as we returned from our honeymoon, I had a text message from one of our guests asking for his contact info for a friend's wedding. And one month later, we are still hearing how great our DJ was. To top it all off, he is very reasonably priced. I could go on and on about Mike. We would hire him again in a heartbeat, and I would recommend him to anyone.

DJ Survey Was I accommodating, talented and friendly? Yes definitely, you both seemed to have similar personalities to Tommy and me so you made what could have been a very stressful time much easier for us! :)Was I professional? Without a doubt. Deadlines were upheld, you kept great contact with us either through telephone or email throughout the several months of planning, and you mc'd the reception without being corny! hahaDid I play the music you wanted and expected to hear?Yes. We loved the whole playlist and loved how you shortened some songs during the ceremony to accomodate for timing. Was the sound quality and volume to your liking?Yes nothing too loud or too soft and you were great working with the hotel's audio visual for the slide show. Were you pleased with the flow of the evening? Absolutely. You gave us great suggestions on how to arrange certain key events to accomodate everyone involved. It really made us feel as though you were invested in the process rather than completing a gig for a paycheck. Other comments:Overall Mike you were fantastic. We loved your easy going personality, which we know can be tough to keep when you are constantly working events like weddings. With all the craziness of the evening, you kept your cool and helped us have an incredible evening! :) Photographer SurveyWas Colleen accommodating, talented and friendly?Definitely. We both know our families could have been a little intimidating, but Colleen remained professional and friendly throughout the whole process. We are amazed at the different shots she was able to get and how easily she accomodated for the weather and sweatiness in the hotel front lobby! haha. As Tommy put it, "she was working in stealth mode!" It never felt like the flashing of the camera was intrusive on such an important day. Did you receive the pictures you wanted? She really took the time to listen to us about certain shots we did and did not want. I cry every time I look at all the amazing pictures of our friends and family. Overall how would you rate your pictures? We have to admit we were a little skeptical as Colleen has not done that many weddings but after we saw the finished product, we were amazed at her work. I only hope she may have some future interest in doing maternity or newborn sessions! Other comments:We really lucked out with our DJ/photo package deal. Mike and Colleen we both think you were awesome and well worth the price! Thank you again! :) Eileen and Tom Grudier

Mike and Colleen did a fantastic job. We were so satisfied with everything.

You accommodated all of our requests, and were very helpful guiding us in areas we were unsure of. We never felt pressured into making certain decisions. We felt comfortable asking questions, and were given great guidance for areas we were unsure about (the flow of the evening, when to put dances, etc.) The pictures we got were gorgeous and we didn't feel like we were getting dragged along with pictures. Colleen was a ball to hang out with for the hour while she did all the family/bridal party photos. It was hard for us to choose pictures that wouldn't go in our final album. Every picture was so different, unique, and beautiful

Mike you were the man. I.E. accommodating, talented, and friendly. Yes, you were professional and played what I liked. I really can't think of any complaints. It was much easier having you run the show than trying to stay on top of everything ourselves. Everything was perfect!

Hi Mike! I wanted to say we really appreciated you being the DJ. You were both VERY affordable and very professional. I felt totally comfortable leaving everything in your hands. :-) Having the right DJ was one of the most important things to us, and you were above and beyond what we hoped for. It was the perfect day and you played great music, were a talented announcer and speaker, but also stayed in the background at the right times. People were dancing all night, which is what we wanted.

Thanks again for EVERYTHING. I will absolutely refer you to friends! You are one of the reasons our wedding day was so special and so perfect!!
