“Mike was not my original DJ. The first DJ came as part of a catering package at a discounted rate. (That should have been my first warning sign, but having never hired a DJ, I just didn’t know any better!) My fiancée and I have very specific taste in music, and knew exactly what we wanted played at our wedding. This DJ had other plans, going as far as to say that the wedding would be a total disaster if he were to play the songs I had selected! He even suggested that as he was the “professional” and did this for a living, he had a better idea what would work that I did. I’m so glad he had the utter nerve to suggest this, otherwise I would never have fired him and found DJ Mike!!
After realizing that this DJ would have been a total disaster and destroyed the vibe of my wedding, I took to the internet in hopes of finding a DJ less than 3 weeks before the wedding! I googled different keyword combinations such as “DJ personalized” and came across Mike Obara’s website. I gave him a call and told him about my situation. After speaking with Mike and describing my experience, I felt very comfortable with him. He asked poignant and specific questions regarding my taste in music, as well as my fiancés. I had a playlist that I wanted to share with Mike. Rather than suggest that if he hadn’t heard of the songs on the list, they shouldn’t be played at the wedding as the original DJ had; Mike took the time to find every single song on the list! He was very easy to communicate with, and made the whole situation seem stress free!
Flash forward to the day of the event. Because Mike was so receptive and communicative regarding my concerns, the entire playlist consisted of music selected by myself and my fiancé! It was entirely personalized. Not only that, but Mike seemed to have an innate sense of what song to play at exactly what moment, and my wedding seemed like an intimate, personalized dance party! He kept the flow of the wedding moving, and the guests on the dance floor.
Considering the direction my wedding could have gone in had I gone with my original DJ, I could not be happier that I was lucky enough to find Mike on the internet, and that he was actually available on the day of my event! Music is important to me, and Mike understood that. He worked with me He was available at every turn to answer questions or make suggestions. My wedding guests still mention what a good time they had, and the music is often mentioned! I consider myself extremely lucky to have found DJ Mike in time for my wedding.”
