I seen Windy City Mix at my friend's wedding and I knew I had to have them for mine they were the first thing I booked after picking a venue. Very fun, beautiful up lighting, personalized monogram. They had quality props for the photo booth everybody loved it. Our wedding was so much fun the people from the wedding next door kept trying to crash our wedding.

I booked Windy City Mix a year prior to our 10/1/16 wedding at the Garfield Park Conservatory, based on the glowing wedding wire reviews. When we went to meet with the owner (6 days before our wedding), he didn't show up. He was able to be there about 15 minutes after we called him. He seemed very nice and apologetic, so we forgave him and moved on.
On the day of the wedding, the DJ started off by making comments/jokes about who has kids before we were introduced. We were literally yelling at him to stop from the entrance area because having no kids at the wedding was a huge point of contention with our guests. That started things off pretty badly for me.
Next, we walked out after we were introduced and he played the wrong first dance song. We requested "I can't help falling in love with you" by Elvis, and he started playing "Fools Fall in Love" by Elvis. I actually had to walk over to the DJ, stop the song and ask him to play the correct one.

The other major "blunder" was that he played "Friends in Low Places" by Garth Brooks, which was one of the few songs on our do not play list.

Overall, I was told by several guests that the music was boring and the dance floor was only full for one song - the cha cha slide which I picked myself.

This must be some sort of exception to the rule, since they have so many good reviews. I was very disappointed in the music selection, the wrong first dance and the do not play issue. I would not recommend them to any of my friends.

Windy City Mix responded with the following comments:

Hi Justine. I apologize about the miscommunications regarding the first dance song. That is a huge no no and we should of researched and made sure that we had the correct song on hand. As far as the Garth Brooks/Friends In Low Places - song, again, we apologize, we were just so into the party and it was a request and totally did not cross our mind regarding the "Do not play" list. The joking around in the beginning was simply to loosen up the guests and get them into the vibe of the evening. It was not to offend anyone or anything of that sort. We looked at our report on our mixer and we played all the songs that you requested and tried different genres to get them on the dance floor moving. Again, we apologize about the miscommunication, we did play what you requested, however, we should of also been on top of the song for the first dance. We wish you and Lucas nothing but the best in the future.

Planning a wedding in the city of Chicago can add up really fast! Consider the value of using Windy City Mix. For a very fair price i booked a DJ package and photobooth for my wedding. Pricing it out separately or via other vendors was several hundred dollars more expensive, but I saved by bundling and paying cash. If budget isn't a concern, then consider the quality and professionalism of Windy City Mix! From the first meeting with Rodrigo and Kenneth (our DJ), I could tell they were serious about their work. They have quality props, great packages and their online portal system was great for a Type A bride like me. I was SUPER worried about the music for our wedding given we were mixing cultures (my family is Mexican, his is not), age groups and extremely different tastes in music. I would never have believed they'd get both of our parents on the dance floor. Literally everyone who attended was dancing at some point and that by far some of the best memories of the entire wedding!

My husband and I worked with Rodrigo from Windy City Mix and he was absolutely FANTASTIC! He was a pleasure to work with and very flexible with our schedules. He catered to exactly what we wanted, and our wedding reception was unforgettable! We had a younger age range among our guests that attended the wedding and my husband and I knew we wanted an upbeat atmosphere on the dance floor, and that is exactly what we got. Our dance floor was filled for the entire evening and I owe it all to Rodrigo. His song choices ranged from different genres and eras so all guests could enjoy their time. I would highly recommend working with Rodrigo and the Windy City Mix team. You will definitely not regret it!

Great DJ and photo booth services! I booked Windy City Mix for my June wedding through a recommendation and was not disappointed! Rodrigo kept the dance floor busy all night with a mix of 80s, 90s, 2000s, and salsa music that appealed to our guests. Wilfredo was a great help with the photo booth and props-a surprise to most of our guests-and he made sure everyone signed our photo booth scrapbook. Our wedding would not have been the same without him!

1,000% Recommended. Rodrigo addressed my concerns right away. He talked a big game and came through. Their experience shows tremendously. They worked around the Mariachi band that my mother brought in, almost last minute. I can confidently say that the party would NOT have been the same with any other DJ. Ceremony was classy and the reception had people, who cannot even walk well, dancing until it hurt! He read the crowd well, as he said he would, and the night was amazing and unforgettable. 1 million thank yous!

We had Rodrigo as our DJ for our wedding reception and he did a wonderful job! His company is very affordable and cheaper than most other DJs, especially since the quality of his service is unbeatable. Rodrigo provided us with DJ services, uplighting , and a red carpet photo booth. We had a custom made backdrop for our photo booth that we loved. 2 copies of the photo booth pics were made- guests received 1 copy of their photo booth pic and the 2nd copy went in a scrapbook to us, which is a wonderful gift to the bride and groom! Our guests absolutely loved us having a red carpet photo booth. Rodrigo stayed in communication with us during our wedding planning and was very responsive to questions we had. It was important to my fiancé and i that the delivery and setup went smoothy on the day of our wedding, and Rodrigo definitely delivered on that promise! I would highly recommend Rodrigo as they are affordable, provide all services that you could need, and deliver on quality service!

Where to begin... We met Rodrigo 5 years ago at a wedding and knew that day if we were to ever get married that he was our guy. Two weeks ago our day finally came and as expected it was nothing shy of amazing. At the ceremony, his assistant stepped in as a coordinator to make sure everyone was walking in at the appropriate time. At the reception, we received multiple compliments on the mix of country, hip-hop, R&B and everything else in between. Although Rod did not play my Grease Mega-Mix (I forgive you Rod <3) I cannot express enough how truly amazing he and Windy City Mix team are. You will not meet anyone more genuine and caring than the team at WCM. Rod, we are grateful to have been able to spend the day with you as our DJ and genuine friend. Thank you for everything!!! Samantha & Robert Stevens <3

Windy Cindy Mix is the way to go if you’re looking for a wedding DJ. While researching DJ’s, we came across WCM and set up an appointment. On the appointment day, we met with Rodrigo (company owner) and Andres (who was the DJ available for our day). They sat with us for over an hour patiently and thoroughly going through all our questions!
As the day approached, the hubby and I checked in periodically with questions/ event details. Rodrigo and Andres always replied timely and professionally.
On the day of our wedding, Andres just blew us away. He not only was an AMAZING DJ, he took care of us and checked in periodically to make sure we were happy with the music, pace of the agenda, etc. Seriously, Andres, you went ABOVE AND BEYOND!
We had a few music requests ahead of time, but otherwise gave him free reign to play the crowd. Based on the few requests we had beforehand and reading the crowd – HE ROCKED it and kept the dance floor full all night! Andres was also very versatile – he mixed top 50, all kinds of Spanish music (bachata merengue, cumbia, etc.), 80’s, Arabian music, and more flawlessly! I would recommend Windy City and Andres to anyone looking for a solid DJ for their upcoming event! THANK YOU!
