Best Wedding Planning Tip
Make it about you. Fill it with elements that are uniquely about you and your love. Don’t worry about pleasing everyone else, just be you. Oh, also make sure that thing you saw in the movies is something people actually do.
My Guilty Pleasure
I don’t believe in “guilty pleasures” I’m unapologetically me, but if I had to say one it would be…. The “Legally Blonde The Musical” Original Broadway Cast Recording. It’s a great album

DJ Dan was INCREDIBLE– from helping to plan our music, to understanding our wedding timeline, communication and day-of he was so great, especially with making sure the sound at the ceremony was perfect, (we had no electricity there either) and the dance floor was NEVER empty, it was perfect.
Thank you very much! We had an excellent time and Dan was terrific. Many of our guests commented positively on the music after the wedding, telling us it was hard to stay off the dance floor. Event with a smaller wedding than we originally intended, we felt like the dance floor was always active. The atmosphere was great throughout the entire event. The lead up to the event was terrific, Dan did a great job communicating with us and taking notes of our preferences. We felt at ease going into our wedding having no doubt that we were going to get what we wanted and asked for. We would definitely recommend Dan to our friends and family in the future. Thank you all very much for helping make our wedding great! We sincerely appreciate it.
Dan Pelletier was unbelievable, my wife and I are more than satisfied with his professionalism from the first time we met him up to the completion of our wedding. I have already recommended him to a couple of friends who are getting married in the future. I will never forget the service we have received.
Dan Pelletier was such a great DJ for our graduate school formal. He was sure to take our song requests without question. There was not a single song we did not like, and everyone had so much fun dancing and singing along. His attention to reading the crowd at times during dinner and when everyone was done eating with regards to song selection were spot on, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. He was also prepared prior to the event start, which was so calming and reassuring to the event coordinators. We will definitely be contacting him for future events.
