Real Wedding Wire reviews, most current:
I can't say enough good things about Marc! Marc was wonderful to work with, always professional and upbeat, and made the planning process so easy. Marc provided the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception which meant day-of we didn't have to worry about a thing. We got so many compliments from our guests about the music selections, each song was better than the one before and kept getting our guests pumped up! The dance floor was full through the end of the night. I would definitely hire Marc again for a future event and would recommend him to everyone!
When my "husband" and I started the process of wedding planning one of the most important components to us was the DJ. We were thrilled with our first interaction with Marc. He was articulate and really set the stage for creating and awesome event. Both the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were in the same location and as a result Marc was able to provide services for all 3. Prior to the event, we worked together to create a day of itinerary from the moment guests arrived to the last dance. Personally, I only remember leaving the dance floor twice. There was never a dull moment! All of our guests raved about Marc's DJ'ing skills and timing! If you are in the market for an awesome Emcee and DJ Marc is your MAN! For our last dance, literally the dance floor was full. It was the blow party we had hoped for and Marc definitely helped to deliver our vision. Seriously do not hesitate to book him, he was WONDERFUL!
DJ Marc Wilner was incredible!! I was nervous booking vendors when planning a wedding out of state but he calmed my nerves immediately and we really enjoyed / appreciated his feedback when it came to the timeline of day of events and song ideas. We were not a picky couple when it came to music, we just wanted our guest to have a great time and be out on the dance floor as much as possible and DJ Marc made that happen! We couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and would HIGHLY recommend him for your wedding or event!!
