My fiancĂ© and I got engaged on Christmas and decided a few days later that we -and by “we”, I mean “she”-would get married at the end of January! The one thing I took the reins on was the music and hiring a DJ. I’ve been listening to Art aka DJ Artistic spin in clubs, bars and local events for more than five years, so I had no worries about the music being great. But I was blown away by his professionalism! I knew he took his business seriously when he demanded a consultation. Art who is aptly named, sincerely wants you to have the best experience possible. He takes pride in his work and it shows. Art actually came to our rescue, because he helped us focus on the day. During the consultation, he made us think of things that never crossed our minds and because of the time crunch and distance, (I live in SD and my fiancĂ© lives in OC) we had to do everything via FaceTime! He went through a detailed timeline of the entire event making sure we got all the special songs we wanted at the correct times throughout the night! He even checks in with you up to the big day to make sure there are no major changes he needs to know about.

On the day of the event Art and his assistant-yes!, he came with an assistant!- had to travel from San Diego to Riverside for our wedding. He set up and broke down his equipment in several different areas to accommodate our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We had several different special performances throughout the night and Art was able to provide us with wireless microphones, mic stands as well as a guitar hookup! Things don’t always go according to plan at weddings, but you’d never know with Art at the helm. The music scheduling changed several times and Art was able to roll with all the changes and never got flustered.

An added bonus to our reception was Art’s gorgeous uplighting and monogram! If you are trying to decide if you’d like this at your reception my suggestion is yes!!!! It added so much ambiance to the room. He was great at reading our crowd and keeping the flow of the party going! Having a great master of ceremonies is just as important as the music itself and Art is a consummate professional. If you want your wedding to go seamlessly with great music and you want to your guests to have a great time, look no further than DJ Artistic. He is worth EVERY penny. You will NOT be disappointed.
