"When we started our search for a wedding DJ I basically gave up hope that we'd find someone that would "get us" and actually play music we wanted to hear. They all seemed a bit "cheesy" and no one was unique. Then I came across Richard!! I will forever be thankful for Richard and his ability to make our wedding fit us as a couple. I have goosebumps just thinking about how special he made our day for us." (Trisha B, 9-10-13)
