Stephen did our officiant and DJ services for our recent wddding, he was extremely professional and answered all questions we had promptly. He came with a selection of music that fit our guests perfectly after we answered only a few easy questions. Our guests were all amazed with his work and talked about him for days after, saying they would hire him for any event they had in the future. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and he even broke the ice for our guests with a fun newlywed game!

With a month left before my wedding date I was absolutely terrified to hear that the dj we hired had gotten very sick and retired! The dj referred us to west Florida dj, I hit full panic mode. Who was this Stephen person? How could he possibly pull this off within a month? Well, let me tell you, Stephen did a fabulous job! The ceremony music was awesome and the reception flowed amazingly. I'm so happy we had such a great dj who was able to work under the pressure of a short deadline. Thank you Stephen for making our special day absolutely perfect!

April was the DJ and Officiant for our December wedding. My husband and I have a unique funny side and she was able to pull across our personality through both the Ceremony and the reception. Even if there was a song she did not have or us wanting to change around the vows, she was on board for everything. She was absolutely wonderful. I worked with Stephen in the beginning as far as the set up and some details. They were willing to work with me and offered some wonderful advice and deals. I would choose them all over again. So many people commented about how wonderful the dj was and how beautiful the ceremony was. Thank you for making our special day wonderful. If you want a DJ who gives a great price and amazing quality then they are your best choice!

We thought we had everything set and ready for our beach wedding and then just a few weeks before ,our DJ backed out. That is when we found Stephen Warenchak ! Not only was he professional, he made us feel like we had known him forever. He's truly a great guy. He listened to our preferences , played only the music we asked for. He added music we requested and totally gave us the wedding reception we wanted! We give him 5 stars all the way! Our guests still tell us that they had the best time at our wedding, he made it fun and kept people dancing until the venue had to shut us down lol! Even the wait staff who were also working another wedding told us they preferred hanging around our party. Thank you Stephen for a memory of a life time!

Stephen came recommended by my bartender and I was so glad we hired him. He was very flexible (as you have to be with crazy brides) and went above and beyond what we asked of him. Everyone had a blast at our reception and thought the music was perfect. I would recommend him to anyone who asks. Thanks so much for helping to make our day perfect!

Stephen performed our wedding reception on June 6, 2015. Our original location suffered from electricity issues during the day, which was deemed resolved by the time of our wedding prep, and Stephen was able to complete setup of music and our up-lighting as we had discussed, to a second floor location without an elevator. Unfortunately, the electric gremlins returned, the reception was to be relocated and Stephen was informed he had 10 minutes to move all his equipment 1/4 mile down the road (unassisted!). To the backups!! Stephen was able to unpack his backup equipment at the new location just in time to receive the bride and groom, as well as perform first dance and some introductory music. He then had to run back down the street to retrieve all his original equipment, but still make it back in time to set the music for dances, record speeches, and generally keep the reception "in the dark" about his travails without affecting the reception. Stephen was a ninja in this regard - no one had any idea of his efforts behind the scenes and the reception entertainment went flawlessly. With his thorough planning and prep, followed by adapting to a new situation within minutes and keeping everything flowing during our special day, we highly recommend his services.

Stephen was our DJ and he was so great! He helped make our night so perfect! The communication was so great throughout the whole process and he was always quick to answer in email if needed. Very attentive to what I wanted, since I provided most of the musical choices for everything including my bridal entrance and cake cutting. But for the dance party, he threw in some great classics as well as accommodated my guests requests. He timed everything perfectly and got things moving through the night. Thank goodness he reminded me to do things like cut the cake and throw my bouquet, I needed to be told what to do that night.
He surprised us with a newlywed game and the guests loved it, it was really cute!
They are pros and you can tell they have been doing this a long time, would definitely recommend them!

West Florida DJ responded with the following comments:

West Florida DJ was never 'rude' at any point during this wedding. This review was posted by the mother of the bride, not the bride herself.

This client actually had a magical wedding ceremony and reception, and we have video footage to prove this. In fact, we offered to give her the complete wedding video free of charge as a concession to make her happy, but she never replied.

Additionally, we supplied a last minute, battery operated PA system for the ceremony, when it was discovered there was no power near the selected location.

We also gave substantial discounts on both DJ and Officiant services, as well as a reduction in contract balance due for another $100.

The issue that she is upset over, is that we played the first dance before the mother/daughter dance. We can provide the paperwork submitted by , and discussed with the actual bride, which never mentioned a change in the order of formal dances.

We are disappointed that the MOB felt it necessary to post these remarks publicly, rather than discussing the concessions we offered.
