Ryan was hands down one of the best parts of not only our wedding day, but of the entire planning process. The process of planning a wedding can be very daunting and overwhelming, but over the course of the year we began planning for the big day, Ryan really helped to alleviate many of our concerns and truly made it an enjoyable experience overall. He spent a great deal of time with us over the year helping to arrange the flow of the evening, down to each individual song we wanted to include. He really listened to each of our individual wants and needs and also did an incredible job of advising us in areas where we were unsure. We were really adamant about wanting a DJ who wasn’t a cheesy ‘MC’ type, but was still able to take control of the flow of the evening and provide an amazing dance party atmosphere-and Ryan did exactly that. Since our wedding, we have had multiple guests come to us and tell us how fantastic the music was and how much fun they had, which ultimately was our primary goal. I am SO happy we picked Ryan to DJ our wedding and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a personalized, unique and memorable evening!

Simply put, Ryan was the best DJ we could have ever hoped for. From the initial planning process to the big day, he was open to ideas, professional and caring. He made the process feel more personal than any other vendor, helping us to be at ease in knowing that he was going to do a fabulous job. The wedding day was absolutely perfect, and he had everyone (even my usually shy dad!) out on the dance floor dancing & enjoying themselves all throughout the night. To this day we get compliments from our friends and family that our wedding was the coolest and most fun wedding they have ever been to, and we thank Ryan for his tireless efforts to help make that happen. We would wholeheartedly recommend Ryan/Party for a Lifetime to anyone looking for an amazing DJ for their special day. Thank you Ryan!!!

Ryan made our wedding absolutely amazing! He made sure everything ran smoothly with the timing, kept the mood perfect at all times with the music, and went way above and beyond to help make our day as perfect as possible. He is professional, friendly, responsible, and a great DJ. We could not have done it without him! Leading up to the event Ryan was very hands on with helping us decide on music choices and made sure every detail of our wedding ‘soundtrack’ was taken care of. He was a pleasure to work with and we owe him a great debt of gratitude for making our wedding day better than we could have imagined!

Excelent job. Superior sound quality and equipment. After our wedding, I had many people telling me that the music was so good, they wanted a copy of the soundtrack! Jokingly I said that to Ryan (DJ) and he provided me with one so that I could give it to the guests.

The evening flowed perfectly, the wedding traditions were touched on perfectly, and the music was flawless. With all that goes on with a wedding, it was awesome working with Party For a Lifetime! The best DJ service I have ever come across.

Ryan took the time to make sure every detail was covered before our wedding. When it came time for the big day I knew I was in great hands. He covered everything from practicing name pronounciation to making sure we had just the right songs for our introductions. Great gear, great host, great experience.

Ryan Brown is an outstanding, professional and knowledgeable DJ. From the pre-planning phase, Ryan was always available to us to lend his guidance and direction in regards to our music selections. His experience from handling many prior weddings was invaluable to us in determining a good selection of songs, the proper flow for the night and what type of music would best fit the demographic of our guests. At the wedding itself, Ryan was engaging, energetic, entertaining and fun. He got the crowd to jam the dance floor right from the start and kept them on their feet the entire night. We couldn't have been happier with the service received from Ryan and would high recommend him for anyone looking for the best DJ in NY for their event.

We had the typical list of vendors for our wedding; florist, banquet hall, caterer, photographer etc...
Ryan, the dj, was without doubt, the single best vendor in terms of service and value added.

From the very beginning, Ryan was extremely accommodating for both mine and my wife's busy schedule. We both work on Wall Street where the days are stressful and long and he went out of his way to make himself accessible whenever and wherever it was convenient for us. Not that one necessarily needs to do these things in person. In this day and age, one can get a lot done over emails and phone calls, and Ryan was certainly always very responsive in these areas. But my wife liked to do things in person and interact with Ryan and he never hesitated to go the extra step to make us feel comfortable and that things were under control.

While we're on the subject of having things under control:
My wife and I were overwhelmed and not in control leading up to our meeting with Ryan. We haven't been to a lot of weddings and don't have the kind of resources or networks to bounce ideas off of, so we were kind of just winging it. That all changed after just one meeting with Ryan who, in 60 minutes, gathered all the information he needed about our personalities, musical tastes, the type of crowd, venue etc…and put together a list of songs to compliment our personal playlist and gave us some ideas and a timeline for us of how things would / should go based on his experience. He even gave us homework assignments to keep us focused and planning. We walked out of that meeting feeling organized with a roadmap for the first time during the entire process. Ryan would continue to keep us organized and creative over the course of several meetings and alleviated a lot of the stress leading up to and right through the wedding night.

One side story I'd like to share to demonstrate how extraordinarily helpful he was-
I wanted to sing a song for my wife to be at the wedding. Ryan, in addition to being a wedding, bar and club dj, is also a karaoke dj and hosts a few parties in and around New York City throughout the week. (I highly recommend you go to one of his events to get a feel for the level of energy he brings to parties.) Ryan was gracious enough to let me practice on his sound system at his karaoke night and even gave me feedback and tips for ways to better improve my performance.

At the reception, Ryan continued to demonstrate his value add, keeping things organized, on schedule and appropriately setting the mood. He played every song we wanted to hear, weaving and dodging throughout the chaos of the night, changing the tempo and energy levels to correspond to the course of events (intros, speeches, appetizers, dining, dancing etc…). And when things seemed to be losing steam (apparently our personal playlist didn't have enough energy) Ryan improvised and kicked up a notch. And it was hit. Everybody was dancing, including our parents which, without going into too much detail, is quite a feat to accomplish.

After the reception, we had an after party on a boat cruise around Manhattan. Ryan not only wrapped things up on schedule, but was able to get all of his gear onto the boat and set up, by himself, so that it didn't cut into our cruise time. And of course, Ryan brought the best out on the boat and kept the party going strong late into the night.

I don't usually write reviews about anything (restaurants, movies, vacations etc…) but both my wife and I agree that Ryan's services were worthy of an enthusiastic recommendation. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, yet down to earth and approachable and I highly recommend using his services if you're looking for a wedding dj.

Ryan at Party for a Lifetime was recommended to me by a former co-worker to whom I will forever be in debt to....

Prior to calling Ryan, I figured a DJ would show up and play "traditional" wedding music and leave. This was the impression I got when shopping for a DJ's. Ryan was the exception to my pre-conceived thoughts. He was the most professional and detail oriented person that I hired to be a part of my special day.

Ryan met with my fiancé and I some time before our wedding, we were so impressed because none of the other DJ candidates offered to meet with us. You could tell right off of the bat that Ryan was a step ahead of the rest. He listened, cared and his passion for what he does was evident. His attitude and desire to make our day as special as possible was refreshing and comforting.

Once our day arrived, Ryan showed up early to set up looking very dapper. He did show up with all of his equipment, but more importantly, he brought a bright smile like he had every other time we met with him. Ryan started by setting the tone/mood of our day while everyone was preparing for the reception. Playing great music and keeping the party energy high is only the tip of the iceberg with Ryan and Party for a Lifetime, as he is a wonderful master of ceremonies. The music was the highlight of the reception and his facilitation of the toasts was second to none. His wonderful attitude and personality shined in everything he did on our memorable day. Multiple guests asked how I found Ryan and also commented on how entertaining he was during and after the reception. I have and would recommend Ryan to anyone that is looking for an extra special event. Ryan has qualities that cannot be learned or taught, he is an absolute natural!

Thank you Ryan and Party for a Lifetime-

Noelle and Chris
