James McNally was the DJ at my wedding, and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ.

We had a Halloween wedding and we wanted to have a wedding that was definitely reflective of the holiday, without crossing the line of cheesy and kitchy, so we also wanted the sophisticated feel of a high end wedding mixed in.

Not an easy feat for most, but James mastered it! we gave him examples of songs we wanted, and he played every single one of them.

It was far from a traditional wedding reception, but he helped make it one of the best weddings any of my guests had ever been to. He even was able to help improvise on the spot changes when I couldn't coordinate some of the things I had originally planned to do.

I did most everything myself, including making my own wedding cake, because I had a hard time getting people to understand my vision. The few things I left to the professionals were the catering, the flowers and the dj'ing.

The florist did exactly the opposite that I wanted, they thought I should have a traditional bouquet, because all brides want that.....

The event hall and the DJ were completely understandable of my vision and were excited to be involved in such a "different" day. Because of that I had absolutely NO worries about the reception, James was beyond anything I could have imagined.

I even had given him the option to dress up in a costume if he wanted, but he insisted on keeping it professional and wear a tux. I would recommend James to anyone anytime, he is amazing!!!!

I am coming up on my 5th year anniversary this year and people still talk about that day and say it was the best wedding they had ever been to, I couldn't have done it without James!

I can't thank him enough!!!

James McNally was the DJ for my wedding. Not only did I LOVE him as a DJ, my guests also had a great time! James was very professional and carried out all of my wishes to ensure that I had a PERFECT day. I could not have asked for a better DJ. He kept the events at my wedding running smoothly through out the reception and was entertaining every step of the way! My guests danced on through the night and were disappointed when the dancing had to stop...that my friends is because of our amazing DJ! I highly recommend James for your wedding!
