"Words cannot even begin to explain how happy we are with DJ Joe Stephen and Standing Ovation DJs. He provided the music, lightening, and special effects for both our cocktail hour and wedding reception on July 14th, 2018. He definitely lives up to all the positive reviews we found on him while doing our research.
First, he was willing to meet with us at a day, time, and location that was the most convenient for us, he was both personal and professional from the very first time meeting him, and we felt very comfortable talking about music and ambiance ideas about our wedding with him. He was very familiar with our venue, the InterContinental, and his set up was perfect with lighting that beautifully matched our theme and colors. We didn’t go big on floral arrangements/decorations, and we’re very happy we didn’t, because we feel like Joe provided everything we needed with the lightening. His special effects wowed our guests and made our night very magical without going over the top.
His music selection was spot on with what we wanted and described to him. He was also flexible with the last-minute changes we made leading up to the reception. He knows his music, definitely knows how to get a party going, and was attentive and took requests at a drop of a hat throughout the entire event. Our guests had nothing but positive feedback about Joe and felt very entertained all the way to the end of the evening.
Finally, his prices were very reasonable, fit perfectly with our budget, and can be tailored to any budget depending on what specific services you’re looking for in your reception. Perfect is the word that keeps coming to mind each time I think about the night, and he was a huge part of making our night very special. I definitely recommend Joe and Standing Ovations; we’re so happy we found him!"
