Dustin was a fantastic DJ. He even played some songs from Frozen for the kiddos to sing to at the reception. He was spot on for the songs to play during the ceremony. The up-lighting was gorgeous and set up exactly where they needed to be. I will use this company again and specifically ask for Dustin. Ellie was the coordinator of everything and was always available to answer emails and phone calls. Top notch professional service all around.

We had Caleb as our DJ and he did a great job selecting the music and reading what our crowd would like. People were dancing the entire time and he didn’t talk too much. We also used their photobooth which they had someone else working and it was such a hit. One strip the guest got to take home as there wedding “favor” and the other half went into a book where the could write a note. We also got a flash drive with all the pictures on it too. People of all ages enjoyed the photobooth… really glad we decided to do it!

This email is coming to you late, but wanted to let you know how great everything was at our wedding on October 5th. Dustin was fantastic and kept everything running so smoothly. When he had a question to ask me about the timing, he was very calm and so easy to work with. At some point, I will have a formal thank you and also a tip for him which I will send in the mail.
Thanks so much!!

I just wanted to let you know that our wedding last weekend was perfect, and that your DJ did a fabulous job! I would definitely recommend A Special Event to anyone! The DJ knew how to keep the crowd engaged with different songs, games, and activities, and the Photo Booth was a big hit. Looking at the pictures at our gift opening the next day kept us laughing all afternoon.

I wanted to let you know I thought it was great and Jamie and I had a wedding we will never forget.

I just wanted to thank you for being a part of our day! The photo booth was a BIG hit. It entertained every age group at our reception. It was so fun to look back through our book the next day and see all the pictures. It is a wonderful keep-sake of our wedding. 🙂

Good morning, Tim. Just a quick note to thank you for the outstanding experience your team delivered at Mackenzie and Tim’s wedding reception last Saturday. Our guests danced until the very end, and there was a line at the photo booth all night. Their keepsake book was full of fun photos and messages they’ll enjoy for a long time to come.

Your announcing set the tone for the evening! I was surprised to be on the list of intros, but what fun that was! My grandkids even got to be a part of the grand entrance, which made it even more special.

You’ll be the first one I call when we have another big event; thanks again for all you did to make the night so much fun!

“I know it is lately over due, but I just wanted to thank everyone at ASE DJ for the exceptional work put into our wedding reception. We still continue to hear from our family and friends how much fun our reception was. The dance floor was packed up until the last song of the night even after allowing us another half an hour extension. Mara’s profensionalism, enthusiasm and personability was on point, including her ability to keep the party rolling! 🙂 I would highly recommend A Special Event DJ to any friends and family and plan to pass whoever I can along to you with high recommendations. Thank you all SO MUCH for helping make our wedding day even more special!

Megan and Jimmy Frizzell

“I was looking for my daughter’s wedding as she was out of state. I called several DJ’s and Tim was one of only 2 that actually called me back. We immediately got along well. I liked his manners, tone and willingness to do whatever we wanted. His contract even asks how formal we would like him to dress for the occasion. I had sent a list of some songs we liked also and he played those throughout the evening including one for my mom, the grandmother.

I felt he did a great job and would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ at their wedding reception.

Cyndi Lorenzen – Mother of the Bride

Thank you for the outstanding job you did DJing our wedding reception on September 17, 2005. I can’t tell you how many compliments we received on your music selections and your overall personality with ‘working the crowd’. We (the bride and groom) particularly appreciated your ability to facilitate the activities of the evening along with coordinating with our reception hall host. This allowed us to simply have fun and enjoy our special day.

We couldn’t be happier with our decision to have you DJ our wedding. Thanks again and best of luck with your future engagements.

Erik and Jennifer Kolstad

Our DJ played all the songs we wanted and always kept a crowd on the dance floor. Even the caterers came out to bust a move. On behalf of us and our guests, thanks for the awesome party ASE!

Allison Duncan

Thank you so much for doing our party on Saturday Night!! Especially since it was so last minute, you saved the party!! Everyone had a great time, and that’s all they’ve talked about today!! The music was perfect, and the karaoke added some fun!! I had nothing but complements all night, and now all day!! Thank You again, you were a life saver!! 🙂

You will be the only one on our list now of DJ’s!! See you next year for sure!

Lori Wayman

Ben and I just wanted to let you know we had a great experience using A Special Event DJ for our wedding. Our DJ was very polite, knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. We were very pleased with how smooth the night went. We would recommend A Special Event DJ to anyone!

Ben and Jessica

It’s been a while, but we wanted to send a “thanks” to you for DJing our wedding! We had a great time.

Thanks Again
Chuck and Lisa

The only suggestion I have is to keep him going to more weddings! He was such a great time and the best wedding DJ I’ve ever seen! There was never a dull period, and the dance floor was packed from beginning to end, which I have never seen before. I was so happy with him and would choose him all over again for any DJ-necessary event!

Courtney Nenenhoven

AMAZING job last night!! Dustin was amazing and our reception was a blast!!

Nicole Hemping (April 2012)

Thank you so much for your support of the event! It was a huge success and yet again, everyone LOVED the photo booth and our featured Wish family really enjoyed the photo album. Thank you for being a continued supporter of the organization and such a wonderful company to work with!

JoDee Hedrick- Make a Wish, Iowa

Just wanted to give you all a big thanks for the DJ services on Saturday May 24th! The couple and family were so happy with the evening and it was a pleasure working with your DJ. He was great and I hope to work with him again in the future.
