We used this group for our wedding DJ and could not have been more pleased! We had Rob as our DJ, who was absolutely wonderful! He was so easy to work with and really tried hard to customize our wedding just as we envisioned. We unfortunately had some bad weather during our wedding and needed to make some last minute adjustments to the ceremony, but Rob was so flexible! The dance floor was full until the very end of the night, and people were even requesting one more song at the end to keep the party going! We had a blast and would highly recommend them!

We had Ed and he was a breeze to work with! The company has an online planning option, but I was over zealous and already had a whole playlist and timeline made. Ed called us the week of and went through our plan including pronunciations of names. He literally let us do what we wanted. We gave him a playlist and told him to play the room and he could deviate from the list which he did wonderfully. He kept us on schedule the day of by approaching us and asking if we were ready for "insert event" here. Would recommend to all!

We also had photo booth and I wish I remembered his name but he was great too. So by photo booth what they do is have a black background and the camera on a tripod. The nice man moved the camera to accommodate all who wanted to be in the shots, 3 per shoot. The border of the prints are very basic but no sweat. Could be our fault because we never specified a style. They print immediately and he said he'd send us the digital file soon.

Rick and his team are amazing, especially Ed our DJ for the ceremony and reception! We are STILL getting compliments about the music at our wedding. Both being musical people, my husband and I had very specific timing cues during the ceremony, specific songs to play during the cocktail hour, songs not to play during the reception and they listened to absolutely everything with minimal conversation. Any song they didn't have in their repertoire they found and he kept the dance floor packed all night long. No cheese, no frills just a ton of fun and are super flexible.

Rick was wonderful! He asked lots of questions and was very professional so that he knew EXACTLY what we wanted for our wedding reception. He was very reasonable and took personal care of us the entire night! He provided DJ services, and officiated our announcing, cake cutting, garter/bouquet toss, as well as our fabulous uplighting, the cake spotlight, monogram display on the floor, etc, etc, etc.

We booked Ryan for our DJ. He contacted us about half a month before the ceremony to plan out a timeline. He called us and walked us through what everything meant and what he had seen that worked well in past events he'd done. The day of he provided us with additional lighting that really just tied everything together in the best way possible. He kept the guest entertained and really kept everything moving at a good pace. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. He's very knowledgeable and provided us with a lot of flexibility!

Our DJ through Rick Ryan (we had Shannon) was fantastic. We gave her a basic idea of what we liked and she did a great job from there. It seemed like she was able to gauge how the crowd was reacting to songs and steered the music in that direction to keep people on the dance floor. We really liked the online wedding planner they have so that you can input your timeline and specific songs, as well as send in requests. Shannon was also helpful in orchestrating the various activities throughout the night and knowing when to call for the next toast, get people to the cake cutting, etc. I found Rick Ryan's pricing to be very reasonable and would definitely recommend.

Rick was the most wonderful and perfect deejay/emcee/photobooth provider we could have asked for. My now husband and I met with Rick way in advance at the wedding venue and scoped out all details -- including Rick's amazing idea about these LED stands that project light into glass vases filled with clear crystal glass filler. The result was spectacular and everyone was impressed with the uplighting and tiny details that make an event feel high quality and like an upscale party. Rick also took into account all of our requests for start/end timing of first dance songs, father/daughter songs, etc. Rick had the initiative to call us several times in advance to make sure all the expectations and details were clearly communicated for the big day. He also was very prompt about responding back to any questions we had. Rick also provided us a URL that guests could request songs through his online system and we distributed this out a couple of weeks before; this was a big hit and got guests pumped up about the big day and helped build the excitement. The photobooth area was so much fun and had a ton of hilarious props. One last comment was that Rick actually surprised us in a good way when his wife was taking pictures during the reception and the pictures would post on the projector screen in the back with text messages scrolling that guests sent during the reception. Then we actually had two photographers capturing all the great moments of the reception. I would recommend Rick to anyone and everyone who needs a reliable, professional, and generally overall awesome person to meet your emcee/deejay/photographer needs.
