Can we see you in action?
Although we would love to show what we do at events, I like to put in your perspective the following: How would you feel if I took someone to your wedding? The answer 100% of the time is that you would not like it.
It also becomes a liability for The Guests of Honor, The Venue and The DJ, including you. Please refer to slideshows, videos and our excellent references on Google, Weddingwire, Etc…
