Rachel MADE our reception! She knew exactly how keep people moving the entire night - the dance floor was packed from start to finish. After the last song guests were chanting for more! Thanks so much for being such a fun part of our special night!

DJ Rebecca and Toast & Jam DJs were amazing! From the first meeting my husband and I knew DJ Rebecca was the perfect fit for our wedding. She understood our music interests right away. We loved filling out the music form leading up to the wedding. Our guests raved about the music - everyone wanted to set list and said it was their favorite part! Everyone hit the dance floor, including our grandparents (in their 80s!). We would very highly recommend Toast & Jam!

I cannot write enough wonderful things about Toast & Jam. This was some of the best money spent on our big event. From the very beginning our DJ, Emily, was so on top of everything. She was actually giving me recommendations for timelines, songs, etc. The process was easy, clear, and she was super flexible and easy to work with at the event.

Most importantly, her talent really made the night. The dance floor was packed until the absolute last song of the night. Many of our guests complimented the way she read the crowd, and played songs that all of our guests could enjoy.

Toast & Jam was worth every penny!!

Kristin marks of toast and made my wedding. As soon as the light dinner music started my wedding party said they wanted to steal her playlist. She had everyone of the dance floor, from my college friends to my parents friends and even grandparents. She was def. The best vendor I chose. My other friend used them for a wedding so whoever you get you will be happy with. I would recommend asking for Kristin marks. She was awesome! She danced at her booth the whole time!

Our DJ was Angie. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her, every step of the way. She was flexible and made sure her service was tailored to our wishes. She did a great job of asking the right questions to really get a feel of our music tastes. Our reception went late, until 1:00am, and some of our guests got a little tired after midnight. When the dance floor began to cool down, she knew just what to play to get everyone back out there again. The only issue for the whole night was a blown speaker at the beginning of the ceremony. It was in no way Angie's fault. The only reason it is worth noting is to show her professionalism in dealing with this issue. The problem was fixed in a flash and the rest of the ceremony went off without a hitch. After, she made sure to personally apologize to both of us. We were very impressed with Angie, from beginning to end.

Rachel was by far the best DJ I have ever met and she was amazing at our wedding. Rachel was not only a DJ she helped coordinate the whole night by staying on top of time and when each dance, toast, and dinner needed to be completed. Toast and Jam was flexible and worked with me as I was planning a wedding out of state. Rachel played every song we wanted and the dance floor was packed all night! I continue to have friends and family telling me that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and that it had to be a record of how many people on the dance floor at one time! We are so happy that toast and jam were able to DJ our wedding and we will refer them to everyone!

Our DJ was Carrie G from Toast and Jam. She did an awesome job!!!!! I have gotten so many compliments on the music and how much fun everyone had dancing and that they didn't want the party to end. The dance floor was packed the entire night and not a single favorite song went unplayed.

I'm so glad that I went with T&J as one of the first vendors I booked; they turned out to be one of the best parts of the day! If you want to have the best wedding reception EVER go with Toast and Jam!

We had Angie, and absolutely loved her! My husband and I had been to two Toast & Jam weddings (with different DJs) before we got engaged, and we were both amazed at the wide range of music, and the number of people on the dance floor until the very end. When it came time for our wedding, we knew who to call.

We live out of state, so we did all our meetings with Angie on Skype. At our first meeting, we went through the reception and talked about suggestions for each item (entrances, cake-cutting, first dance). We also went through a multi-page list of songs and talked about what genres we like, what would be best for the cocktail hour versus reception, etc. We had another meeting closer to the wedding and went through everything one more time. Angie was patient and answered all our questions, and offered us advice on reception-timeline things that we were unsure about. She really listened to what we were looking for.

The reception was seamless. Angie worked with our venue coordinator to figure out the timing of everything, and she really read the crowd. She started out with music that spanned generations (Madonna, Bon Jovi, Queen). Our parents’ friends loved the music, and kept telling our parents afterward how much fun they had dancing.

As it got later, we had mostly younger guests on the dance floor, and Angie switched up the music a little bit. Our friends were amazed- they kept saying, “I’ve never been to a wedding with music like this! I can’t believe you’re playing the Mighty Mighty Bosstones!”

There were people on the dance floor for literally the entire reception, until the very end. My parents couldn’t believe it- they had never been to a wedding like that before. We ended the night with a big circle around the dance floor, belting out Piano Man. Perfect ending!

Angie is SO friendly and was a pleasure to work with! We would highly, highly recommend her. She is someone we would absolutely want to be friends with if we lived in the same city!
