“Alan was very helpful in his knowledge of making sure everything “flowed.”
We hired Alan Chitlik only about a month or so before our wedding and he pulled off our reception for us wonderfully!
He has an online site that allowed us login and select songs that were must plays, play if you can, and don’t play. We also received a login for our guests that allowed them to choose songs they wanted to hear at our wedding, which we know they loved getting to be involved in the music selection and request songs in advance so this was a great feature for us and for them! Alan had us fill out a form prior to our wedding which laid out every “moment” in detail (from our grand entrance to the garter removal and garter toss) so we could select every song that we wanted played for each and every important moment during the reception.
He was very thorough in our meetings, which made us feel confident that no detail would be missed. He made the reception have a wonderful flow to it and played every special song we had requested for special moments throughout the night.
His experience with our venue was especially helpful as he knew that guests sitting near the back of the venue would be unable to see the dance floor and therefore, it would be necessary to have them all standing near the dance floor for the first dance, father daughter dance, mother son dance, so that everyone could see. He helped pull this off so that the night still had a good flow to it and people didn’t feel like they were being shuffled around.
Details like these were things we hadn’t even thought of, so Alan was very helpful in his knowledge of making sure everything “flowed.”
We interviewed several other DJ’s before Alan and most were either not as professional or knowledgeable and also less expensive or had similar philosophies to Alan and portrayed a similar confidence and professionalism, but were 3 times as expensive. Alan was the right price for our budget and gained our confidence quickly and certainly carried through with that and didn’t let us down on our wedding day. He was very easy to work with and we would definitely recommend him!
