We loved having DJ Mandy at our wedding. She was so much fun and kept our guests happy. She was so lively and dressed so nicely for the event. She was so kind and kept our guests on the dance floor constantly. She even showed everyone how to do the wobble.

It was a pleasure working with you as our DJ for my son’s wedding. The process from start to finish was very smooth.  Your are extremely well organized and feel your organization skills made our event run smoothly.  You were always prompt in your reply to questions or clarification on the details of exactly what you were going to provide as our DJ.  As the DJ is the person who keeps the event moving and on the desired time line, we are very happy with the music choices your played for us.  I would recommend your services in the future and give you a 5 star rating. – Mother of the Groom

I was a little too busy this day to get photos AND do Instagram stories so here are some screenshots of my Instagram stories. This was a super fun morning/daytime wedding. We closed the curtains in the room to give it that fun night-time vibe for dancing! There was lots of Country music which is always fun!
