I decided for my 30th birthday, I wanted a big blowout bash with everyone who had helped get to where I am today, so I needed to go big! I hired Straton Hall to cater as well as for their venue downtown "The Loft" but the one additional thing I needed was a great DJ to set the mood with music and lighting! After a few easy conversations with Justin, we had a plan in place and all was set for the party. When I walked up the stairs in to the loft, I was blown away by how they had managed to transform the place through their lighting, and they already had the music playing, it was PERFECTION! Throughout the night, Island Sound kept the party moving, know when to take things from a lounge-y feeling to a more pumped club like scene. They definitely knew how to read the crowd and make the right selections!! I will definitely be hiring Island Sound again!
We used Island Sound for a few different services. Booking with them was easy and they were helpful in helping us figure out what we would need, without seeming like they were trying to upsell for more money. We ended up with a DJ, a wedding planner, and a photo booth for the day-of.Gary was our DJ and he was great. The questionnaire they sent us was very helpful, and narrowed down our reception play-list style; I recommend saying what you like, what you hate, and turning the rest over to them. Gary’s a professional and clearly knows what he's doing. I called him day-of and got comfortable really quickly that we were in good hands. He read the crowd, adjusted to the vibe, and all my guests had a blast!The photo booth was pretty cool. We were on the fence but I'm glad we went with it. It gave the guests something to do when/if they weren't dancing. We got some fun pictures. It came with a bunch of costume items and people really enjoyed it, especially if a picture says a thousand words.Ally was our wedding planner. She was amazing. My wife chatted with her a month out and she got all of the info for the other vendors and the venues. She coordinated it all and even better, let us know what was going on. It really took a big stress off my wife's shoulder's I could tell. The day prior we had the rehearsal; I've been to some rehearsals but never one that was really properly rehearsed. Ally knew what she was doing. The day of the wedding, WOW, I was truly impressed with Ally & Emily. This sort of thing obviously comes natural to her; she thought of everything that I would not have and more. She was there hours before and blew me away with how on the ball she was; it made it possible for everybody to relax. She was spot on with time-lines, reminders, keeping people in check, adjusting things, answering questions, and making us really at ease. Ten out of ten! I have pretty high expectations of the people around me and the Island Sound crew were better than I expected.
