Another wonderful wedding at The Prado. Worked with Alicia for the second time (always a pleasure) and met some great photographers who have probably moved back to San Diego by now (they were in the process at the time). Staci and Matt were awesome clients, and their friends and family love to have fun, as you’ll see from these photos!

Wedding Dancing I

For dancing, we went through so many genres I lost count. I also found that Staci and her close friends love one of my favorite artists, Dirt Nasty. Unfortunately he’s not really appropriate for a wedding, but it was a cool commonality to have with some of the guests!

Staci and Matt posted a review about my services on Yelp:

Dennis was wonderful to work with! We had SO many compliments on our wedding and the music that I can’t even begin to tell you about all of them. Dennis had people dancing the night away, INCLUDING my Dad who doesn’t dance period. Dennis was ALWAYS quick to respond to emails and often had more information in them than we had even asked for. He always had great answers and always decreased my anxiety about various wedding tasks. I would hire Dennis again in a second! Sure you could hire a much less expensive DJ for your wedding, however, I wouldn’t recommend it! He is worth every extra penny we paid for him. Thanks again Dennis!
