MN Wedding Planning Wedding Party

5 Star DJ Reviews

We had an outdoor wedding, and reception in a tent in Alexandria, MN. We found Dave/WedPhoria on the internet when planning and gave him a call. After talking with him he seemed like a good fit so we sent him our PayPal deposit (very convenient) right away. Dave was very professional, answered all of our questions, and even made a special trip to Alexandria a month before the wedding in order to go over a few things, as well as evaluate the electrical capabilities of where the reception was being held since this was the first wedding ever had there. This was a huge help and stress reliever. He answered all of our questions, and they were able to accomodate all of our requests, including providing a microphone and music for the actual ceremony as well as the reception.

After the ceremony, he had to move all of his equipment from the ceremony up to the reception site in order to play some background music for the cocktail hour. We didn't even notice him moving his stuff, and he was playing music again faster than we could have hoped.

We had originally planned to announce the grand march ourselves, but changed last minute (literally, maybe 5 minutes before) and decided to have Dave announce. We also changed our fist wedding party dance song last minute as well. Dave was great with all the last minute changes and it was just a huge relief that he was willing to do whatever he needed and could to help our day be perfect.

Song selection at the reception was awesome. We had multiple compliments that they played such a great variety of music, and Dave did an awesome job keeping people on the dance floor. It was packed all night. Apparently someone at our reception made a list of almost 20 songs that were all one genre, and Dave had noticed that whenever songs similar to ones on the list were played, everyone seemed to leave the dance floor. He approached us and suggested that he maybe mix in a few here and there rather than playing them all, so we definitely appreciated him paying attention to what was working and what wasn't, rather than just hanging out and not caring how much fun everyone was having.

Dave had to leave (he told us well before the wedding day) about halfway through the dance for a personal commitment, and the person who came and replaced him (Andru) from WedPhoria did just as awesome of a job, and was willing to stand on a table at the end of the night and take a picture of everyone who stuck it out the whole time.

For such a random discovery of WedPhoria, we just googled DJ's in MN, we couldn't be happier to have landed on Dave/WedPhoria. Dave was a huge help with everything, did everything we asked, and just did an all around fantastic job. My bride and I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND using WedPhoria to any/everyone that we can. Great Job all around.
