What a beautiful Sunday it was for Luke & Monica’s wedding celebration at Willows Lodge in Woodinville, Washington! And let me tell ya: these two were made for each other. Both Luke & Monica shared a passion for video games, an industry they both work in. Luke is an Australian gentleman from Melbourne, and Monica has such a unique personality – her charisma instantly draws you in.
(Also, Monica comes from a family that has trusted me with serving as the Master of Ceremonies and DJ for two daughters now. And I’m sure when it comes time to plan their son’s wedding, I’ll get the call! Thank you, Greg & Karen!)
And speaking of Greg, he and Monica got the party started with their surprise medley during their Father-Daughter Dance. It was well done, and I’m sure a moment this Father & Daughter duo will never forget. Greg, you’re a pretty cool dad. And the end of the routine was perfect as it brought guests out of their seats and onto the dance floor, which stayed consistently active for over two hours on this wonderful Sunday evening. (As I’ve said before – if the DJ knows how to program and keep the energy up, people will dance on a Sunday.)
So, congratulations to Luke & Monica! It was an honor to serve you; thanks for a day of memories I won’t soon forget.
Luke & Monica’s Five-Star Review
We had Tony for our wedding in August 2015 – and he was fantastic!
He was the DJ / MC at my sister’s wedding in 2013, and we knew, when we got engaged, that was who we wanted for our wedding. He’s professional, dresses well for the wedding, has a great announcing voice, and gives couples lots of opportunities to customize their ceremony and reception to exactly what they want. His equipment is all up to date, and he arrived on time.
Very low stress to work with Tony – which is definitely something to look for as a couple when picking a vendor who controls many aspects of your big day. You will not be disappointed if you have Tony as your wedding DJ / MC!
The only thing holding back the 5th star – Tony gives you this binder with everything to customize ideas, and worksheets for your music and to help you pick different parts of your wedding reception & ceremony, which is fantastic and we enjoyed filling out. But, being out of state while planning – it was a bit of a drag to have to scan in all the sheets once they were filled out. If you’re planning out of state, Tony is still very stress-free to work with – just ask for the .pdf version instead 🙂
