Ryan & Nina

It’s always a great honor when another wedding DJ asks me to be the MC and DJ at their reception. Such was the case for Ryan, who used to DJ weddings back home in the Baltimore, Maryland area. And I’m sure glad he and Nina did, as we rocked the Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie Ridge with a late 90s/early 2000s set of throwback jams that included: “All Star”, “Tubthumping”, “Semi-Charmed Life”, “Fantasy”, “Ride With Me”, “Tearin’ Up My Heart” and more.

But before the dancing even started, we had some awesome moments planned for Nina & Ryan’s guests. Just a few examples:

  • Nina had a TON of flower girls, and they loved to dance. So, they danced to “Uptown Funk” into the ceremony, and they did a surprise flash mob dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” for the Grand Entrance
  • Surprise song skits for each wedding party member as they entered
  • Ryan did his best rendition of Ray Lewis’ “Squirrel Dance” before his Welcome & Thank You speech
  • Nina & Ryan surprised the winners of “The Napkin Pass” with scratch tickets. Someone even won $10!

Ryan & Nina, thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding celebration, as it was an honor to serve you!

Ryan & Nina’s Five-Star Review

As a former wedding DJ, I knew a DJ can make or break a wedding. Tony is the DJ that will make your wedding. When we met with Tony the first time I knew right away Tony was the guy I wanted for our wedding. From the start, he was organized, professional, and had more suggestions than I can count of how to make our wedding different and special. Many people can come up with wedding ideas but Tony was then able to put them on paper and run the ideas perfectly. Once we got to the party portion of the wedding Tony rocked the house and I can say not once was the dance floor empty. Our wedding day ran perfectly smooth and I credit much of that to Tony. We would recommend Tony to run anyone’s event. Thank you Tony for helping make our wedding day something that was special, unique, and unforgettable.
