Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Randall & Kayleigh Weigner!  This past Saturday, they celebrated an Absolutely Beautiful Ceremony & Wedding Reception at The Canfield Casino, located in Downtown Saratoga Springs, NY!

I had the opportunity to work with Sean, Danielle and the Mazzone Hospitality ALL STARS, Photographers Scott & Lisa Kretschmann, Jeremy & Lauren of LaRose Media, Tony Gibson of Time Capsule Photobooth and Ed from We Marry U!

Below is a photo I took with my trusty iPhone during their Ceremony in The Casino’s Parlor Room.  Such an Elegant Ceremony!

Today, I received this AWESOME 5 Star Review from Kayleigh!!

“When I got engaged 2 years ago I knew that I wanted Mike to be our DJ.  After booking the Canfield Casino, he was the second person we got on our wedding team.  Mike completely understood the tone I wanted to take with our wedding.  Since my husband and I were dating for 11 years before our marriage, we wanted a party more than a formal wedding. Mike got that and my husband and I couldn’t be happier.”

“Mike took on the role as not only our DJ but part of our planning team, he even helped us find the photographer!  Throughout the 2 years of planning, Mike checked in and couldn’t wait for our day!  One of the greatest things he did was help us placement of a special song in our family – Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.”  He suggested that we have that as our last song and let me say, what a moment that created!  Throughout the whole wedding and even know, I have people coming to me and saying this was the best wedding they have ever been to!  It’s been an amazing process and I owe a lot of it to Mike Garrasi! My advice to the people who are planning their wedding…Hire Mike!”

Mr. & Mrs. Randall & Kayleigh Weigner – Dover, New Hampshire

Thank You Kayleigh & Randall!  YOU ROCK!

Just recently, I received an AMAZING 5 Star Review from Michael, which you can read below!

“Mike Garrasi does an incredible job of offering you and your wedding party as much or as little as you want.  He is always on the ball with what you want on the day, not only in terms of the songs you want played but also the feel and atmosphere you want too.”

“Mike Garrasi strikes an incredible relationship with his bride and groom and is friendly, attentive and puts you at ease on your big day.”

“We organized our wedding from London yet Mike ensured he was always available for questions and made sure he spent the time to get to know us over several Skype meetings, to really get a feel for us as a couple, our families and what we wanted.”

“We barely gave Mike a song list yet through talking to us and listening to what we had to say he picked up on the fact we just wanted our wedding to be fun for all our guests and our dance floor filled.  On the day Mike is great at reading the room and knowing exactly what his audience wanted.”

“We added up-lighting and our monogram to our package months after the initial order with with Mike which added even more wonder to our beautiful day.”

“Mike Garrasi will act as your DJ, your host, your events organizer, your greeter and will be as much or as little as you want him to be.”

Michael & Meagan Smyth – London, England

Thank You Michael & Meagan!  I wish you a “Lifetime of Happiness”!

Mr. & Mrs. Mike & Emily Young - Pat's Barn - Troy, NY

On Saturday, April 19th, I DJed an Awesome “Spring” Wedding for two of my Friends!         Mr. & Mrs. Mike & Emily Young!  I’ve known Emily for years, working with her during many Wedding Receptions & Events via Mazzone Hospitality and now Events With Style!  I got to know Mike within the past year, throughout their wedding planning and he is one “Rock Solid Dude”!

They celebrated their Wedding Ceremony & Reception at a “Hot New Venue” - Pat’s Barn, which is located within the Rensselaer Technology Park in Troy, NY.

How would I describe the vibe at their Wedding Reception?  INSANE!  The Wedding Reception ROCKED!!  Plain and Simple!!   The energy not only from Emily & Mike, but all of their guests that day was just INSANE!!  They came to party and party they did!  The Dance Floor was so packed, I barely had enough room for my equipment.  The whole day was just ONE BIG PARTY!!

The "Wedding Pro's" at Mike & Emily's Wedding - Pat's Barn - Troy, NY

That day I had the pleasure of working with lot’s of Friends, who happen to be some of the BEST WEDDING PRO’S the industry has to offer!!   Jen & Staff from Mazzone HospitalityPat’s Barn Manager – April Rounds, Photographer Rob Spring, Dave Bigler & Crew of Dave Bigler Wedding Photos & Films, Kara & Evan of Anthology Design Studio, Make Me Fabulous and For The Love of Pie!!  What a TEAM!!

Below are 2 really GREAT FILM’S Dave Bigler put together for Mike & Emily.  They both Rock!  You have to check them out!

The 1st Film is titled – “Vendor Fun”!

The 2nd Film is a Longer Version titled – “Emily & Mike’s Wedding At Pat’s Barn”

Just after Emily & Mike got back from their Honeymoon they gave me 5 STAR REVIEW on WeddingWire!!  I’ve posted what they wrote below.

“Being in the industry, it’s always hard to choose who you want to work with for your big day because you know so many qualified and amazing vendors.  However, from the moment I met Mike, over 5 years ago I knew he would DJ my wedding, then it was just a matter of getting my groom! When the time came, it was a no brainer to choose Music Man Entertainment, we even worked our date selection around what Mike had available. From before we were even engaged until the very last minutes of our wedding reception, Mike was nothing but amazing, professional, and 100% on, and a great friend.  Any questions we had, he had an answer.  Any song we wanted, he knew and got it for us!  On top of that, the energy and the true love of what he does shows through in all aspects.  One of the best things about Mike is that when I thought I knew how I wanted everything, he had great suggestions and advice to ensure it was perfect. On top of that, our dance floor was packed, people were trying to dance before they were supposed to!  But once they all got up, no one sat down.  Mike kept the music going, spanning through multiple decades and genres and hit what my groom and I listen to on the head without ever really even asking. There is no question that we LOVE Mike Garrasi and Music Man Entertainment!  Thanks to him, we had the best wedding ever!” - Mr. & Mrs. Mike & Emily Young – Glenville, NY

Thank you Emily & Mike!  Love ya too!
