Hard work, dedication, and professionalism never goes unnoticed. I am grateful that some of the coolest people I have ever met share their special day with me.

In their own words, here are twelve randomly selected couples I've had the honor to serve and what they have to say about their experience working with me.

Our DJ hurt his back two days before our wedding and had to send a replacement. We had never heard of Tony Schwartz, but were assured he would be great in our other DJ’s place. We were not disappointed!!! We love country, and wanted a heavy hand of it mixed into our wedding day. He did a phenomenal job of incorporating plenty of instrumental versions, dance songs, slow songs, and dinner music within that genre while still keeping the party going strong. We could not have been more pleased. For walking into someones wedding last minute, he absolutely blew us away. He was polite, professional, and a pleasure to work with. We can not recommend him enough, especially if you are a country fan!

I think what every wedding has in common is wondering how will the day actually progress, what will happen? That is where Tony steps in! He is not just a wedding DJ; he is a master communicator, part wedding planner and all-knowing-day-of-wedding coordinator.

Tony made us feel so at ease with what was happening every step from our wedding planning to the big day! Once we met with him and let him know what we were looking for we knew he would be great for us. He gave us a (massive) binder filled with everything he needed to make our day a success. He asked what type of music we like, what we envisioned the feeling of the wedding would be, who was in our wedding party, why we chose them and what the wedding meant for us as a couple. He made sure we, as a couple, picked every piece of music from before the ceremony to the different songs walking down the aisle to our big exit (Grease’s You’re the One That I Want!).

Tony truly cares about what he is doing and realizes that he is a huge part of the entire day. On the day he setup his equipment quickly (I didn’t even notice him!), made sure music was playing while the guest arrived and made the whole ceremony seem flawless. He worked with us to write little intros for all the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen and did an awesome little welcome when we arrived back after the ceremony. They each got their own moment and the guests got to know about them. We had people tell us after how cool and fun it was to watch our wedding party and learn about everyone. Our entire wedding day went quite quickly and photos took a lot of time so Tony had to fill in a bit and speed up other parts, but overall he made our wedding perfect.

I feel like he truly knows how important his job is and how to keep guests entertained and how to work with the couple throughout the process. I would recommend him to any couple planning a wedding. He made everything from planning to execution a breeze.

Thanks to Tony, our PNW wedding of 100 people was the BEST, most FLAWLESS day of our lives!!!

We met Tony at a friend’s wedding just four months before our own, where we danced non-stop for three hours. We saw how well he worked with the couple, and so we wrote to him the following week to book him; we didn’t need to research another DJ. Right away, he sent us a planning binder to fill out. It took a while, and even a little soul-searching, but his attention to every detail of your personalities and relationship is so apparent in his execution of the wedding ceremony and reception. It’s like he’s known you for years! He also has brilliant ideas to make your ceremony & reception unique, fun and memorable.

The day of the wedding was so seamless, which is exactly what a nervous bride and groom are looking for. He had no questions for us, set up everything perfectly on his own, and let us do nothing but have the time of our lives. My husband’s grandparents were skyping into the ceremony, and they could hear our vows perfectly because of the sound quality Tony provided.

The best moment of our reception was immediately after cutting the cake. All of our guests were gathered around us and the cake on the dance floor. The moment we were finished sharing our first bite of cake, he played the BEST dancing song. The dance floor was PACKED for the rest of the night!!! I feel bad that hardly anyone ate cake, because they never stopped dancing, but that’s a great problem to have! Every single person has told me it was the best wedding they ever attended.

I hope that Tony is still a DJ when our children get married. I’d fly him to the other side of the world to be at their weddings!!!

From beginning to end Tony was professional, organized and accommodating! From our very first meeting where he provided us with a binder to fill out that would be specific to our needs, to all the suggestions he gives you to make your Wedding perfect, he does it all. One of his suggestions was a voiceover on my walk down the aisle with my parents, the voiceover was me thanking them for everything they've done for me! There was not a single dry eye in the house and no one at our wedding will forget that! It was truly touching! Brides/Grooms if there is one thing I can say to you it's hire Tony! He is above and beyond any DJ I have ever worked with. As an example we had a change in our day of timing plan (in the middle of our reception!) and within 2 minutes Tony changed the schedule around, got our group seated and made it happen!! We were in a venue with very tall ceilings and crazy acoustics, Tony was able to work his speakers so all could hear our ceremony, toasts, and music clearly which is not easy. He was our master of ceremony as well. He stayed on top of everything. I never had to worry the entire reception. We had more of our guests comments that he was the best DJ they had heard too! It was the best choice for us!! From everything including follow-up meetings, email reminders and accepting of our day of text messages, Tony was perfect. Thank you Tony for making our day exactly how I had imagined!!

I have to start off by saying I was one of those weird brides who would've rather gone off to Vegas and eloped instead of planning a huge wedding. My now husband insisted we had a huge wedding.... so we comprised and had a huge wedding 😉 When we started planning I told my fiance the top 3 things I cared about was good food, good drinks and an awesome DJ. My biggest fear was someone with a mic who didnt know what they were doing and didn't understand a good flow for music.During my search for a DJ Tony popped up on my Facebook so I checked him out. I was impressed with his website and how promptly he got back to me! We met I believe a week or 2 after I spoke to him. From the beginning of our meeting I knew Tony was a perfect match for our big day. He talked to us like we were friends, not like we were a payday... if that makes sense. When our meeting was over my fiance and I got in our car and immediately agreed this was our guy!He gives you this binder... now this binder is AWESOME. It has your typical question for song selections but literally theres so much more to it. It's full of ideas I would've never came up with on my own! My decor and such were typical things you'd see in Pinterest but alot of the stuff we got the most compliments on were allll Tony!Ok, wedding day! Obviously I was a little nervous and stressed but Tony came and checked on me and my husband (separately) and it made me feel like things were under control. He also complimented me on my dope nails 🙂 the ceremony was flawlessly. The right songs at the right time and the perfect volume. After the ceremony Tony made sure my husband and I had time alone for about 5 or 10 minutes as we would be bombarded the rest of the evening. He went over some reception stuff with us and let us be.We had alot of older guests at our wedding so the party did clear our kind of early but our wedding party and friends stayed for dancing and man did we dance!! He was awesome at reading the crowd, it was like we went into our guests heads and new what to play next! We danced as long as our venue let us! Even with a smaller crowd Tony still treated us like we had a huge dance party going on. It was awesome!If you have any hesitation please ignore it and hire Tony!!

From the moment we decided to book Tony as our DJ, we never had any doubt that he was going to do an absolutely amazing job with our wedding.

Being a fairly organized bride, I loved that Tony is so purposeful with his meetings and process. After our initial meeting, he put us to work on our "binder," which played a huge role in making our night a success. We were able to share our likes and dislikes, and his organized approach helped us walk through the flow of the evening while we planned.

His communication is also fantastic. His responses are timely and he is totally flexible. We changed a few minor details a couple days before our wedding and he graciously rolled with it.

When it came to the actual wedding, WOW. Tony ROCKED it. From working with our ceremony guitarist to ensuring that we were all in the right place at the right time and ready for the next step in the night, he was organized, prepared, quick, and positive.

I've also never heard so many people talk about how much they loved the DJ. His playlist was exactly what we had in mind - you could tell he put so much thought and effort into our big day. Our friends and family didn't want the night to end!

We can't recommend Tony enough! Thank you again for making our night so special, Tony!

Tony was amazing! He was extremely professional, quick with responses, flexible, and everything and more we could have asked for in a DJ. We had never hired a DJ before and stressed we didn't want a cheesy and obnoxious DJ, and that is exactly why we chose Tony. He set our mind at ease from our first intro call and we knew he was going to do a great job. He is very down to earth and did an excellent job setting the flow and vibe of our reception to be exactly what we wanted. He played everything we asked him to and we had a filled dance floor of guests having a blast! I would strongly recommend Tony if you are looking for a DJ. We got so many compliments from guests about him and had a handful of guests ask for his contact info for their events or friends events they were recommending him for! We felt very at ease having him in control of the schedule and flow of our reception and he did not disappoint!

Tony is a true professional and a master of his craft. He knows his business well and executes wonderfully through process of a planning binder. Tony's tried and true planning process walks you through every step of the wedding ceremony and reception. Together, we created an event our friends and family will be talking about for years to come. Do yourself a favor, book Tony Schwartz. He is worth every penny.

I highly recommend working with Tony!! He was so easy to work with; he was organized, detailed, and was quick to respond to my emails. During our pre-booking experience, Tony was kind enough to meet with my fiance and I via skype since we were not able to meet in person due to our busy schedules. After talking with Tony, we knew right away that he was a professional and would provide great DJ/Emcee services. After booking with Tony, he was very thorough with our pre-event planning. He mailed us a planning binder with several sections that included things like order of events, ideas and suggestions, ceremony and reception music planning, timeline etc. He walked us through every step of the way making sure that every moment of the wedding and reception was pleasing and engaging for our guests. From what I have heard, our other vendors also enjoyed working with him and had a "team effort" attitude. We loved the personalization he offered as the Emcee while our family/friends were giving their speeches. He shared small fun facts about them and played a fitting song for each person as they approached the mic for their speech. Our reception had a great flow and I believe it was because of Tony as the Emcee. Tony was great and reading the crowd and playing music accordingly. The dance floor experience was AWESOME! Everyone loved the music choices and style. It was fun, lively and entertaining! My new husband and I loved spending time on the dance floor with our family and friends. We ended the night with a special song as we were whisked away. Our only wish was that our reception could have lasted longer!! Our wedding day was so special, one we will never forget. The time FLEW by and before we knew it the night was over. Thank you Tony for helping to make our wedding day so incredible!

Tony is amazing. From first meeting to our wedding day he was nothing but helpful and very insightful. We always felt that he cared about our day so much it felt like we were the only clients he had. He helped everything go so smoothly and he was much more than a dj. His resume should also say wedding coordinator! He even helped my husband write a speech and made him look like a total stud! 😉 Tony was extremely professional and we hadn't a care in the world knowing he was there! Thank you Tony!!

Hiring Tony as the MC/DJ for our wedding was one of the easiest wedding planning decisions, and we couldn't have been happier with how everything went.

We had minimal set-up time due to the time restrictions of our venue, so Tony came up the night before to make sure everything was set up for a more smooth wedding day. The sound was fantastic - we had multiple guests tell us how happy they were that they could actually hear everything - especially during our outside ceremony, complete with a bit of rain.

Tony was so easy to work with - receptive of our ideas, as well as ready to supplement with his own ideas to make our reception even more amazing. We had an awesome monogram that really added to our decor, as well as an amazing first dance - complete with the lyrics displaying during our song. The dance floor was never empty and all of our guests were thrilled with the dance party. We ended the night with a black-light glow stick dance party that couldn't have been more fun.

Thank you Tony for making our wedding and reception such a complete success!! Highly recommend to all couples who are looking to have a smooth, unique, FUN day.

My (now) husband and I were about 7 months into the wedding planning process when we discovered Tony at a close friend's wedding. Tony was personable and helped the night's events flow together seamlessly. Needless to say, we left that wedding with a much better idea of what we wanted in a DJ/MC and we made sure to get Tony's card.

Fast forward to the last few months before our wedding... Tony was absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. He was detailed, organized, tactful with feedback, ready to give suggestions, etc. When we met with him to go over the script, the conversation felt more like we were three friend's planning an event together rather than a strictly-business meeting. There were a lot of laughs, but we were able to talk through the majority of script points within the scheduled time.

The events and music turned out exactly as we envisioned and planned they would and that is thanks to Tony for all of the above reasons, plus his flexibility the day of. Thank you again, Tony!!

If you're looking for a vendor who is easy to work with, but is also an expert on all things weddings, reach out to Tony now!
