I have been meaning to sit down and write about how kick ass my Wedding was since the day after we had it! It was April 4th 2014 in St. Pete, FL at Sunken Gardens and we had traveled from LA to have it there. There is no way it could have been that kick ass either without the DJ I was blessed to have found in such perfect timing! I was referred to Mike aka SoundBySideshow from my brother’s lifelong friend. I had a situation in which my original plan for a DJ had fallen through and I had to hire someone else just three months prior to my big day! We set aside a phone meeting to go over details and two minutes into our conversation I knew that he was the right man for the job and that everything happens for a reason! Right away I felt like we were on the same page and that I was in good hands. WHAT A RELIEF!!!! Just having that first 30 minute conversation with him saved me from months of stress I was already feeling. Not only is he super cool and friendly but he gave me a price I could afford and did not take advantage of the fact that I needed someone right away. He provided me with all the information I needed to fill out that same day and assured me I could contact him at any time for questions or concerns. I never realized how hard it was to actually choose songs for certain things and I took some time to make my decisions, he was really patient with me and didn’t rush me at all and he even gave me helpful suggestions. The day of the Wedding he was at the Venue early and had everything under control before I even got there for pictures. I remember thinking to myself “How does one actually pull this off? Getting the songs coordinated with the right time?” I felt stressed because that day I could barely recall any of the songs I had chosen. HAHA. I had no idea how it would all play out but EVERY song for the Ceremony was played at the precise time it had to be and I was so excited and happy!!! When it came time for the Reception and introductions he had quite the challenge due to my huge Wedding Party… 20 girls and guys plus all the parents! WHOA! HE COMPLETELY NAILED IT!!!! Again the songs were ALL on point and it was so exhilarating!!! The timeline I had set up seemed a bit chaotic in my mind however he managed to have it all down to a science. So much that I at times forgot what the hell I was supposed to be doing! YAY FOR HIM!!! Super professional and organized. He was also looking pretty damn sharp in our wedding colors! SO COOL! He played all our favorite songs that we asked for and kept the energy flowing in that room until they kicked us out!!!! I wanted him to have just as much fun as we were having and feel like a guest and not just be there to do a job. He was completely engaged with all of us and had a huge smile the whole night!!! I would for sure hire him again for anything!!!! This is someone who is genuine and loves what he is doing and also knows in his heart that people are already paying a lot of money for their Wedding expenses and he has humbled himself to show that he is compassionate and understanding of a budget. I now consider him a friend and that is how it should be. Because of him people still talk about how awesome my Wedding was and he was the glue that held together all that awesomeness!
SOUND BY SIDESHOW ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
