   Rick was wonderful! He asked lots of questions and was very professional so that he knew EXACTLY what we wanted for our wedding reception. He was very reasonable and took personal care of us the entire night!

If I could say anything about Rick & Carolyn I would have to say "perfect". Everything was simply perfection. They were where they needed to be, the entire day long and made us feel so comfortable. I couldn't be more pleased. Best decision ever!

---------------------------------------

I really don't know how I could have ever gotten through our big day without them. They made our entire wedding so easy, and took care of all the details and then some. My husband was also very pleased with how much we saved by doing photo and DJ together. It made things so much... Read More

I just wanted to thank you for the work you did for our daughter’s wedding reception on August 15th. Marion wanted the reception to be like a sorority formal, but mostly she just wanted people to have fun! And that was certainly the case! Thank you for working with us!

---------------------------------------

My daughter chose these guys for her wedding. I did not know what to expect but was so happy with the service! Rick kept the reception moving and the atmosphere fun and festive. You and old enjoyed the reception and we're on the dance floor. I could not have been more pleased.

I am so thrilled with everything you guys did for us! Everything was absolutely perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed working with Carolyn. She was so much fun and held our hands all the way through the day. I highly recommend this company. They are the best.

Carolyn was the best and went over and beyond in making us comfortable. The quality was outstanding and more than we expected. Absolutely, call these guys.

We did a lot of research

We did a lot of research before going with these guys. In the end we chose a bundled package with both Photography and DJ. BEST DECISION EVER!! They were both thorough and patient and walked us through the entire process and put us so much at ease. Highly recommended.

Thank you for doing such an amazing job with the music, announcements, pictures and lights! Everything was perfect! I would have no problem recommending ou to whomever I know that is in need of your service. Thank you again!

---------------------------------------

I could not have asked for a better photographer or for pictures that could be any more beautiful. She was so creative and very easy to work with. We had an awesome time with Carolyn and cannot thank her enough for the beautiful job she did.

---------------------------------------

Wonderful experience! They were so thorough and very flexible. I would highly recommend them.

Rick was the most wonderful and perfect deejay/emcee/photobooth provider we could have asked for. My now husband and I met with Rick way in advance at the wedding venue and scoped out all details -- including Rick's amazing idea about these LED stands that project light into glass vases filled with clear crystal glass filler. The result was spectacular and everyone was impressed with the uplighting and tiny details that make an event feel high quality and like an upscale party. Rick also took into account all of our requests for start/end timing of first dance songs, father/daughter songs, etc. Rick had the initiative to call us several times in advance to make sure all the expectations and details were clearly communicated for the big day. He also was very prompt about responding back to any questions we had. Rick also provided us a URL that guests could request songs through his online system and we distributed this out a couple of weeks before; this was a big hit and got guests pumped up about the big day and helped build the excitement. The photobooth area was so much fun and had a ton of hilarious props. One last comment was that Rick actually surprised us in a good way when his wife was taking pictures during the reception and the pictures would post on the projector screen in the back with text messages scrolling that guests sent during the reception. Then we actually had two photographers capturing all the great moments of the reception. I would recommend Rick to anyone and everyone who needs a reliable, professional, and generally overall awesome person to meet your emcee/deejay/photographer needs.

Our DJ through Rick Ryan (we had Shannon) was fantastic. We gave her a basic idea of what we liked and she did a great job from there. It seemed like she was able to gauge how the crowd was reacting to songs and steered the music in that direction to keep people on the dance floor. We really liked the online wedding planner they have so that you can input your timeline and specific songs, as well as send in requests. Shannon was also helpful in orchestrating the various activities throughout the night and knowing when to call for the next toast, get people to the cake cutting, etc. I found Rick Ryan's pricing to be very reasonable and would definitely recommend.

Rick was an absolute pleasure to work with. He not only kept the party alive, but the presentation and lighting he provided was impeccable. It literally changed our venue. From my working/planning with him over the last few months my opinion on Rick and his services can really be summed up with saying that he was as professional as they come. His services were prompt, on time, and exactly what we asked for. I highly recommend he and his organization to anyone looking for a DJ or lighting expertise.

Sean

Absolutely amazing. He made our wedding a huge party and very enjoyable!! He was very friendly and did his job to perfection!! Will recommend to anyone!!

---------------------------------------

Aubrey

He was easy to communicate with, provided excellent advice and direction, sent a personal link to add song requests to and a timeline to plan the reception, and did a great job on the day of. We also used him for uplighting at the venue and for a Photo Booth that added a lot of fun to the reception. He did a live stream so that guests could text messages and pictures to be posted on the ongoing slideshow throughout the event. It couldn't have been better! Thanks Rick Ryan!

---------------------------------------

Mother of the Bride

Rick was the DJ at my daughters wedding and also did the uplighting. I was very pleased with both. The online planner made things so easy. I loved the slideshow and texts! The photobooth was a hit and I was pleasantly surprised when Rick sent me pictures that his wife had taken throughout the night. They weren't even part of the package! Thank you both!

---------------------------------------

Michelle

I am so glad that I chose Rick Ryan as the DJ for my wedding! He kept the party going for the entire night. My husband and I, along with our guests, were more than pleased with the music selection. The additional lighting package made everything just sparkle! Rick's wife made the photobooth rock! I have been to weddings where you have to use your own creative mind for the poses....not here! She helped create amazing poses for every picture taken at the photobooth! Simply a cut above the rest!

---------------------------------------

Doris

Rick Ryan's DJ service was absolutely wonderful! He was extremely helpful, gave amazing support before the wedding with song selection and provided great photo booth ideas. During the reception, he was amazing! He was interactive with us and the crowd and his service made the reception so much fun. The photo booth was the best! I loved how he ran pics inside also - all around really outstanding services provided!

---------------------------------------

Rick was professional and wonderful to work with. He did an awesome job at my wedding and I would highly recommend him. I loved the texts from our guests and the live pics! Our reception wouldn't have been the same without Rick as our DJ!

Rick was our DJ last Saturday for our wedding. He did such an amazing job, I felt compelled to write this review. I was a typical nervous, worried bride, and he made us feel so comfortable and at peace with the whole process. We went with the Diamond package and he did the lighting, music, slideshow etc. He suggested a great lighting color that looked Amazing in our reception. We had great music the whole night and the pictures and comments that were showing during the reception were sooooooo much fun!!!!! I even called him a couple days before the wedding and decided I would try and create a slideshow for old pictures and he told me to just send him the pictures and he would take care of the rest. The pictures were playing during our first dance/father daughter/son mother dances and were sooo perfect. He was incredibly considerate and accommodating. I couldn't be happier with our choice to go with him!

---------------------------------------

Loved everything about the DJ service Rick Ryan provided for my best friends wedding. It was nothing short of flawless and at a super affordable cost. Not only did DJ ed rock the party but the photo booth was killer too! Nothing but great things to say.

---------------------------------------

Rick was so excellent to work with - he was a GREAT DJ, responded well to our guests, and kept the dance floor rockin' all night. I particularly LOVED his lighting package - our monogram above the head table got RAVE REVIEWS from our guests. Also, the lighting round the room was the perfect way to spruce up any reception hall. Thank you Rick for a wonderful event!

---------------------------------------

We had Ed and he was a breeze to work with! The company has an online planning option, but I was over zealous and already had a whole playlist and timeline made. Ed called us the week of and went through our plan including pronunciations of names. He literally let us do what we wanted. We gave him a playlist and told him to play the room and he could deviate from the list which he did wonderfully. He kept us on schedule the day of by approaching us and asking if we were ready for "insert event" here. Would recommend to all!

We also had photo booth and I wish I remembered his name but he was great too. So by photo booth what they do is have a black background and the camera on a tripod. The nice man moved the camera to accommodate all who wanted to be in the shots, 3 per shoot. The border of the prints are very basic but no sweat. Could be our fault because we never specified a style. They print immediately and he said he'd send us the digital file soon.

Rick and his team are amazing, especially Ed our DJ for the ceremony and reception! We are STILL getting compliments about the music at our wedding. Both being musical people, my husband and I had very specific timing cues during the ceremony, specific songs to play during the cocktail hour, songs not to play during the reception and they listened to absolutely everything with minimal conversation. Any song they didn't have in their repertoire they found and he kept the dance floor packed all night long. No cheese, no frills just a ton of fun and are super flexible.

We hired Rick Ryan DJ for a DJ service, GOBO lighting, and uplights. We were fortunate to have Ed and Shannon as our DJs and I can't say enough great things about them! They are a husband and wife team and are incredibly friendly, professional and lots of fun! Ed called me the week of the event to go over our information. He offered suggestions but ultimately let everything be my decision, which I appreciate. When my new husband and I arrived at the reception, they both greeted us at the door and introduced themselves. We kept in touch all night due to a few changes we made (ended up skipping parent dances to keep the mood up and were if-fy about a sparkler exit because of rain) and they were super accommodating and helpful! They were easy going, took great pictures for the screen, and very fun and helpful! I can't recommend them enough!!
Occassionally through contacting Rick Ryan we had to follow up emails and some answers took a little while, but nothing to worry about. Honestly, as a bride you just get anxious and want an answer, like yesterday! I would absolutely recommend them as your DJ AND ask for Ed and Shannon! What a lovely pair!

Rick was wonderful! He asked lots of questions and was very professional so that he knew EXACTLY what we wanted for our wedding reception. He was very reasonable and took personal care of us the entire night! He provided DJ services, and officiated our announcing, cake cutting, garter/bouquet toss, as well as our fabulous uplighting, the cake spotlight, monogram display on the floor, etc, etc, etc.

---------------------------------------

Laura

We booked Ryan for our DJ. He contacted us about half a month before the ceremony to plan out a timeline. He called us and walked us through what everything meant and what he had seen that worked well in past events he'd done. The day of he provided us with additional lighting that really just tied everything together in the best way possible. He kept the guest entertained and really kept everything moving at a good pace. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. He's very knowledgeable and provided us with a lot of flexibility!

I have nothing but great things to say about Rick Ryan and his crew. One of the most important aspects of our wedding was the music and getting people out on the dance floor. Rick's team did just that and created a wonderful upbeat atmosphere on the night of the reception. We had quite a few specific requests for songs and timing and Russ (our DJ for the night) did a wonderful job of playing it all out. He was out on the dance floor interacting with guests and keeping the tempo alive the whole night. We also chose to have the photo booth there and it has provided us with many laughs and a great way to look back on funny moments we missed. Myself and my husband both feel we couldn't have made a better choice for the evenings entertainment!
