An Adventurous Onteora Mountain House Wedding

The Review

“Lou was absolutely awesome. He was incredibly organized and helpful – he went totally above and beyond our expectations of a DJ on our wedding day.

We chose Lou for three reasons: aesthetic, communication, and price. Lou’s website was clean and classy (unlike several other DJs we looked at) and that same classy aesthetic translated perfectly to our wedding. Another reason we chose Lou was his communication. He responds promptly to emails and questions, while also not pressuring you to choose him (another DJ kept calling me and badgering me for several weeks). Lastly, his prices were very competitive for the area.

The reasons we’d choose Lou again are far greater. Pre-wedding, Lou was exceptionally organized. He sent us periodic emails to keep us on track with planning, and was always available to answer any questions we had about the wedding – whether music related or not. We “met” Lou via a Skype chat, and his demeanor was super friendly, confident, and relaxed. He listened to what my husband and I wanted for our wedding, and offered advice where we asked for it. Additionally, he got in contact with our other vendors (photographer, videographer, venue) to coordinate sound/timeslines/etc. and make sure that everyone was on the same page.

On our wedding day, Lou arrived early to set-up. Everything was on-point, including the last-minute instructions I gave him. We had him DJ both our ceremony and reception. He helped to organize the bridal party and instruct them in their entrances. We had discussed the type of music that we wanted Lou to play prior to our wedding day, and Lou stuck religiously to our request (in fact, we had to tell him it was ok to accept song requests from the guests that didn’t fit into the genres we had previously discussed). Other than discussing genres, we put the control in Lou’s hands, and he kept the partying going all night. We had a solid 2.5+ hours of dancing, and everyone was EXHAUSTED by the time the night was over because the energy was so high the whole time. In addition to music, Lou would periodically check-in with us to see if there was anything we needed (well beyond his job description). Honestly, it feels like we should have paid him as not only as DJ but as a Day of Coordinator!

It was an amazing day, and an awesome party – no small part in thanks to Lou. I would absolutely recommend him for anyone’s wedding or other special event, as he is amazing, experienced, classy, and most importantly knows good music and is willing to work with his clients to ensure that their vision is fulfilled.

Thank you thank you thank you Lou for making our day unforgettable.”
