Our Wedding was on 10/12/2013, and The Wedding Kitchen did our Photo, Video, DJ, and Photobooth. We weren't sure what to expect, after having a bad experience with another company we initially hired that ended up going out of business shortly after we paid our deposit. My husband and I are so glad that we found the TWK, as they made our day awesome! Jose was awesome to work with and he made sure our vision came through. We had a Dominican and Filipino wedding, and Jose made sure to incorporate music for everyone, it was so great to see our guests having a great time on the dance floor!! We also enjoyed working with Melanie and her photo/video staff! She's such a great person and it was a pleasure to work with everyone on our day!
All of our guests had a blast, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We had small special requests in terms of music and Jose made sure to incorporate everything we asked for! My husband and I recomment TWK to anyone looking to have a fun, upbeat wedding!

I got married on August 8, 2013. To me a good DJ is super important and what makes for a successful party. I hired TWK because I loved the sample mixes on the website. It was exactly the kind of music I wanted at my wedding. I also loved the fact that TWK is a family owned business so I knew I would get the personalized attention I wanted. Jose Oliveras is the owner and is an awesome guy! I told him exactly what I was looking for in a DJ and I got exactly what I wanted. TWK provided music for the ceremony and recepton. Jose and his team had the crowd up and dancing the entire night. At one point I returned from the ladies room and the dance floor was at full capacity! I couldn’t believe it! It made me so happy. My guests had a great time and commented on how they loved the DJ’s. Jose was the MC for the night and he did a great job. There was a nice flow and he was really funny and entertaining.

I had a Blast at MY best friend's wedding. The DJ/MC Jose Had us dancing most of the night and when we were sitting down to eat, he played some really nice background music that kept us engaged all night. I highly recommend this company for your event. They are Bilingual which is a plus, and The Photographer from what I hear did an amazing job as well, I took their card and am looking for a party just so I can book them, Awesome time!

The Wedding Kitchen is awesome!! Jose did a great job at our wedding keeping the dance floor packed! Their online planning form is very organized and user friendly, too! It was a pleasure working with Jose. He made a point to always make sure we were comfortable and happy during the planning, listening to our ideas while giving his professional input.

I used The Wedding Kitchen as a DJ for my wedding in Connecticut and cannot say enough about how great Jose was. He traveled round trip 6 hours for the wedding, and accomodated every single one of our sometimes odd requests. He has a fantastic library with Latin and American music for song selections and requests- this online library software let us pre-select everything we wanted. After the reception, he confessed that he had a death in his family the day before and he still made it to our wedding. I was astonished at his dedication- this guy has been in this business since he was 16 years old and has not missed a single wedding. Not only that, but he does an amazing job. LOVE LOVE LOVE Jose and the wedding kitchen.

From the day our daughter and her now husband, Rebecca & Kelvin, chose The Wedding Kitchen DJ (American&Latin) we were in constant contact with Jose with countless questions about choices regarding not only music but what other options were available; or what the bride & groom wanted; or what the the parents were willing to pay. Jose was a calming factor during these times. He was understanding and did not try to persuade us to purchase something we did not want nor could afford. He understood the value of a budget and we purchased what that would allow. In the end, it's all about the music and the man behind the mic that all of our guests and our married couple still talk about. Everyone says it was the best wedding party they ever attended...and they partied! Jose & the music made the party! Our American friends were very envious of our new Latin family...Man could they dance!!

I'll start by saying this...it's a month after the wedding and we're still receiving compliments on The Wedding Kitchen. My guess is we will continue to receive compliments as time goes on...

Jose did an amazing job the day of our wedding. He provided music, speakers and a microphone for our outdoor ceremony and was our MC and DJ for the reception. He delivered on everything we discussed from must play and do not play list to everything lights (gobo & spot lights).

His bilingual introductions and announcements throughout the evening were upbeat and professional and he followed the time-line we provided on his client website for formalities, which was great because he kept everything on track and moving leaving us with nothing to worry about except enjoying ourselves. Most importantly he got everyone on the dance floor with GREAT LATIN AMERICAN MUSIC ALL NIGHT LONG!

We have already recommended The Wedding Kitchen to others and hope that we have the pleasure of seeing them at another wedding or working with them again for another event in the future. Thank you Jose and Team!

The Wedding Kitchen was a God send. they were on point with everything. Jose and Melanie are family now. I can't really say enough about them. For all us Latin Americans--The Wedding Kitchen is the only way to go. Jose kept the crowd going. All my guest said he did a wonderful job. I adore Melanie, she is so talented. Our wedding pictures are going to look beautiful. I can't wait. She took our engagement photos and they were absolutely wonderful. They also took care of the videography. Henry was all over the place. I can't wait to see the video.

Jose rocks!!! Let’s put it that way. We met with him and immediately he knew what we were looking for. I loved the Latin beat at our reception. This place knows how to get the crowds moving all night! They also know when to be loud and when to be subtle. Truly a professional!. We also hired his photography and video packages as well. Any bride looking to "salsa it up" on her wedding day book this place, they were great!

I would recommend to anyone to use The Wedding Kitchen for Photography, Videography and DJ. We use them for our daughter's Sweet Sixteen, they were on time, courteous, professional and everything they did was with class and excellence. They exceeded our expectation for her special day. I have seen work from other photographer and videographer, but Jose, Melanie and their daughter are the best around.

You would not be disappointed if you use their services.

Thank you to the Wedding Kitchen, we will most definitely use you again for the next event.

Thank you for the feedback. We emailed client to rectify and explain our position. Due to the distance, almost two hours away, amount of staff needed for extensive lighting and multiple audio locations at church and hall we had to charge more than normal.
There was a small lack of communication and details for somethings were contradicting to what we had on the party planner. Nontheless the party was jumping. Nice couple. Lesson learned. We apologize. God bless.

Jose from the Wedding Kitchen was the DJ for out 10/9/10 wedding and he was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding. He was easily able to blend music from both our cultures and was able to read the crowd well enough to get everyone in the mood to get down and party. One of our biggest concerns for the wedding was how to get so many diverse people to have a good time but after our entrance into the ballroom we knew that was not going to be an issue with Jose. We would wholeheartedly recommend him for any special occasion. :)

Jose is worth every penny!!! I truly believe that music can make or break a wedding reception. It is the difference between having a boring reception or a fun reception, Jose definitely made it fun!! We had 3 hours for introductions, dances, dinner and etc. We didn't even make it to the first course and he had everyone out on the dance floor!! He truly made it a party. Guests were calling me to tell me how they could still hear the music. He was also very professional and was very interactive with the crowd. I definitely recommend the Weddng Kitchen for weddings or any type of party. The BEST DJ I've ever heard!!!

The services provided by The Wedding Kitchen were outstanding. It was a worry-free event in all. Thanks for all the personal attention you gave to make everything perfect for me. It was one less thing I had to worry about. Jose and his staff provided excellent music and light show throughout the whole event (Garden Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception). They were the best!!!! Everyone loved and gave positive comments about your services.

Thanks a million Jose and I will keep The Wedding Kitchen as a referral to my friends and family.

The wedding kitchen along with Jose, Alberto, Eli and Melanie provided a real special experience for our wedding October 3, 2009. We visited his office and hired them on the spot. They got it together. They offered my dj, video and photo services for a great value. The music was just picture perfect with spanish and american selections mixed smoothly and everyone of my request were delivered on time. The pre-party help is just wonderful.

Jose is an above talented dj and mc and is just beautiful. Alberto is amazing. The setup with tvs and lighting is the best we have seen at any bridal show let alone wedding. His sound is WOW.

We can only say the same for the pictures we got from Melanie (Jose's wife) who went beyond the normal. Our wedding albums-we just received yesterday- are just out of this world. We did not get our video yet but knew before hand that it would be at least 4 months before we do. I can only expect the best of that too.

Yes I would recommend The wedding ktchen a dozen times over. Sincerely Mr. and Mrs. Hernandez

Jose was wonderful to work with. He listened to what we were looking for when it came to the type of music we wanted played at our wedding. Everyone said they hadn't danced like that in a very long time. There was not a dry moment - Jose and The Wedding Kitchen ROCK!
