Congratulations Mike and Jack!!! Thanks for making me a part of your special day!
Here’s the wonderful review from them…
“DJ Tessa is the best DJ ever! After much research on wedding DJ’s, I was lucky enough to run across DJ Tessa and I am so glad I did. She our DJ for our wedding and she was a total hit.
I am a big music aficionado so I was quite the stickler for making sure that the music for different parts of our wedding fit. Tessa completely understood what I was trying to achieve and came up with awesome recommendations for music that fit the different vibes for the different venues of our wedding.
We went over several different playlists and she even sent me over music to preview. Some of the music I hadn’t even heard of but immediately fell in love with.
Several people at the wedding commented on how amazing the music was. I told Tessa that after the dinner portion of the wedding that I wanted everyone to be dancing all the way up until the end of the wedding. She turned the whole banquet hall into a thumping nightclub. People were dancing the entire night and we literally had to tell people to leave at the end of the wedding. So many people said that they had never had more fun at a wedding and a large part of that was due to the music.
Our wedding was a night to remember thanks in big part to Tessa. The music was incredible and she was a dream to work with. Completely recommend hiring Tessa.”
