We had a great experience with Style Matters! Spencer was great to work with from the beginning and really listened to us when we described what type of atmosphere/music we wanted for our reception. Noah was assigned as our DJ and we were very pleased -- we had multiple guests tell us that it was the best wedding music they've heard!

Overall we were really pleased with Style Matters. We loved working with DJ Margot. She did a great job with the playlist and more importantly handled everything smoothly throughout the evening. She's really chill and was able to keep us calm as things fell of the timeline a bit. So much fun to work with and very professional. Spencer, the owner, is also very professional and helpful for the initial consultation. Our only negative was it took a while to get a DJ assigned despite the fact we signed a contract around a year in advance, so don't expect to be talking to your DJ until a couple weeks before the event. Great option.

Style Matters provided the DJ for our May 2016 wedding - and we could not have been happier. We spoke with Spencer at the beginning of the process and then from that meeting along with an in depth questionnaire about our musical preferences he was able to suggest potential DJs for our big day. We ended up working with John Simmons who was amazing. He has a formula that keeps the dance floor full. We had people of all ages out on the dance floor all night. He played all of our favorites along with many songs we hadn't even thought to ask for but loved once they started playing. He also does a great job shortening any songs you need for first dances, intros, etc... and does a great job of keeping things moving. He was the perfect fit for our wedding/party. We have received nothing but amazing reviews of John and the music he played since the wedding.

Let me start by saying that to us, the DJ was one of the most important choices we had to make, since the DJ has arguably the most impact on whether or not guests have a good and memorable time at a wedding. We met with the owner, Spencer, pretty early in our planning process. We had previously met with two other DJ companies, and were rather torn between them. After meeting with Spencer, our choice was easy. He answered all of our questions with ease and patience, and made us feel instantly comfortable. One of our main priorities was to have a DJ who wasn’t talking on the mic all night, and he made us feel very sure that this was not just his philosophy, but that of his entire organization.

A month before our wedding, we were paired with Dustin. We met with him soon after, and went over our timeline and music preferences. Dustin couldn’t have been more accommodating and patient with us, and was a true professional from the first second we met with him. He went through our questionnaire thoroughly and asked us questions where appropriate. We left that meeting with a strong sense that he knew exactly what we wanted, without having to spell it out.

On the wedding day, Dustin was at our venue early and handled our introductions and dinner music very well. He worked well with our day-of coordinator to keep things moving (dances, speeches, etc.), and even to slow things down a bit when it was obvious people were enjoying mingling after dinner. Once the dance floor was opened, it stayed full the entire evening. I've read that same statement in DJ reviews before, and thought it was an exaggeration, but at least in our case, it was 100% true. This was our primary goal of the evening, and Dustin did a great job with song selection and tempo to make sure there was something for everyone. We had countless guests come up and ask about our DJ and complement his playlist.

Dustin knocked it out of the park for our wedding on April 1st. One of the reasons we chose our venue, Ovation, was because of the sound system, and so the DJ was a very important decision. The venue owner gave us a few suggestions for DJs from their sister company, Style Matters. We read the reviews on Dustin and decided he would be a good fit.
We met with Dustin a week before our wedding, and as soon as we sat down, we knew we made the right choice. He was so nice and flexible and really just accommodated any request that we had. The song list we had given to him was all over the place – country, dance, rap, oldies, 90s songs. We thought the DJ was going to think we were crazy, but the first thing Dustin said when he sat down was how much he loved the music we chose and how he thought we were going to have the best dance party, which is EXACTLY what we wanted.
Dustin was unbelievable the night of the wedding. We had so many guests comment on how amazing the DJ was, and the dance floor was packed the entire night. He catered to the audience and if a song wasn’t well received and people started leaving the dance floor, Dustin would cut the song short and transition into another one. On top of all of his DJing abilities, Dustin is just such a genuinely nice person and so easy to work with.
At the end of the night, we wanted him to play a few more songs even though we only had the venue until 12:00am, and once we confirmed with the venue that it would be OK, Dustin kept playing for another 20-25 minutes. He really went above and beyond, and we can’t thank him and Ovation enough for that extra time on the best day of our lives. We were so lucky to have him as our DJ at our wedding. Thanks Dustin!

In advance of our wedding we researched a number of DJ companies in Chicago and Style Matters immediately jumped out among the best. We met with Spencer well ahead of time and were consistently impressed by his responsiveness, professionalism, and obvious passion for what he and the Style Matters team does for their clients. Our good friends had Style Matters DJ their wedding a few months before our own, we knew we'd made the right choice without a doubt.

We were paired with Noah for our New Year's Eve wedding. We met a few weeks in advance over Thai food to review the thorough, and incredibly helpful, Style Matter questionnaire and to discuss the overall tone of the evening. It was wonderful having the opportunity for us to get to know each other in advance. Noah provided the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and even compiled a short mix of our favorite songs for the first dance. The evening could not have been more memorable and Noah was a huge part of that. We had agreed on a song for the first slow dance "the first time the dance floor slows down;" it was never needed. The dance floor was lively all night and that was our exact hope, especially being New Year's Eve. We even had to move a table further off the dance floor to create more space. At midnight Noah handled the countdown, a brief interlude of Auld Lang Syne, a quick mix and we were off and running toward the end of the night.

If you are looking for a wedding DJ, or simply for an event, we could not more highly recommend Style Matters and Noah.

We loved working with Style Matters for our New Year's Eve wedding. Spencer was awesome in the initial meeting and ended up giving us a choice of two DJ's he thought would be good for our wedding. We chose one who randomly ended up being the DJ at our friends' wedding that was just three weeks before our own! So, I can say from the perspective of both a guest & a bride, Style Matters is awesome! Our DJ was Ryan and he was really great to work with, listened to what we were looking for and completely delivered. At our friends wedding, we witnessed him go above & beyond to prevent a disturbance to their ceremony, and we had so much fun dancing right up until the end of the reception. For our wedding, he managed all of our announcements, played the songs on the request list at the perfect times, did the New Year's countdown & kept the dance floor rocking all night long! So many of my friends commented on what a great DJ we had and how much they enjoyed the music at our wedding.

Our September 18th 2015 wedding exceeded both myself and husband's expectations for the dance floor. We thought our "younger" friends would dance....but had NO idea that the DJ Spencer suggested for us would have EVERYONE out on the dance floor ALL night long! We just couldn't believe how fun OUR wedding was!!!! Spencer invited us to an open house event he hosted for all his DJ's on the team which really helped us get an idea of the venue space and how amazing it looks in the evening and then we got a great idea of the variety of DJ's this company offers. Spencer gave us the option to request more DJ suggestions....but he really said our style would best match the DJ Max....and we were beyond thrilled with all the music he played. The mix between current music and classics was perfect to keep the whole crowd engaged. We also splurged and invested in the three strings quartet: String Theory for our ceremony and am SOOO happy we spent the extra money to have live music to walk down the aisle to. Everyone enjoyed the personal flare I added to the end having us leave to the Star Wars theme :)

I got in touch with Spencer a couple months before our wedding reception. Because our party was at a bar, we weren’t sure whether we really needed a DJ. We had some pretty particular ideas about the songs we wanted to hear, and considered making our own playlist. I knew that the night would run more smoothly if we had a pro in control, but it is a hefty chunk of change - in the end, I really feel it was totally worth it. Spencer helpfully explained the role our DJ would play in the evening, and he patiently answered all of our questions. After we paid our deposit, we completed a detailed questionnaire about our event, guests, style, and taste. Spencer paired us up with Matt (aka DJ Fancy Boy). I think this is a great model - Style Matters has plenty of DJs, so they have the flexibility to find someone who will be perfect for your event.
We video chatted with Matt about our answers to the questionnaire, and we were happy to learn that we had very similar tastes. As we talked about all of the songs that we had listed, he made some other suggestions and took great notes. He was willing to hit all of the tunes on our must play list, and we immediately felt confident that he really grasped what we expected to hear.
The night of the party, everything went smoothly. Matt was all set up right on time, and throughout the entire evening, he did a fantastic job of keeping people on the dance floor and accommodating a variety of tastes. We started out with some classics for cocktail hour, then moved into some indie rock over dinner, and finally ended with a great blend of 80s-90s pop, rock, and hip-hop. It suited our tastes perfectly. So many of our guests commented on how great he was! In fact, we were having such a good time that Matt willingly stayed an extra TWO HOURS (for a fee, of course). It was awesome to be able to make that decision to continue partying on the fly. Thank you so much, Matt and Spencer!

We were paired with DJ Dustin for our Labor Day weekend 2015 wedding. He was extremely responsive to numerous emails, took a lot of time getting to know us, and really delivered on our wedding day! The ceremony and reception took place on a boat and Dustin rolled with the logistical challenges of sound systems/mics and also chicago noise ordinances on the river. guests raved about the music and everything went smoothly! we loved the long questionaire ahead of time because it made me feel confident they would deliver what we wanted- and helped us think about what we actually wanted. loved that their pricing and fees are readily available on the website and absolutely seemed fair! We later got an audio recording of our whole ceremony/music and all the toasts that went through the mic- this has been great to have since we did not have a videographer. all in all very stress free experience and great all around!
