“Booking a DJ turned out to be the hardest vendor for us to book! We were on the fence between going with a band or DJ, and I was very hesitant to book a DJ. I had been to several weddings where the DJ was “off” on the music, and it set a bad tone for the day. With three months left will the wedding, we still had not booked anything.
Then I stumbled upon Dow Oak Events on wedding wire. I was so impressed by their high reviews. The amazing prices that they offered and the wide range of services they provided we amazing. (Especially compared to every other DJ I had contacted).
So I emailed Dow Oak, and within 10 minutes I had a response from DJ Erik, who we ended up booking for out day! Erik was quick and responsive to all our emails and questions. We set up a meeting to go over music styles, what to expect on the day, and the overall aesthetic that we were aiming for.
Payment was so easy with Dow Oak, as they have an awesome client portal that manages everything. You just fill out the client form with all important songs, speeches, plus a “Must Play List” and a “Do not play list.” This was very important to me, since I had a specific vision.
Dow Oak let us set up a playlist for our cocktail hour/dinner then a separate one for dancing. This was PERFECT. Erik used our exact playlist for the cocktail hour and dinner to set the right jazzy ambiance I was going for. He then used our reception playlist as inspiration to mix awesome dance music. Which keep out guests on the dance floor!
I had so many guests comment on how amazing the dance music was. And above all, how it was one of the best weddings they had been to! Erik was polite and fun for all of our MCing and made sure that the entire day was exactly how I wanted it!
Take it from someone who was very wary of “cheesy DJs,” Dow Oak Events did an awesome job! The ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception… Everything was perfect! Definitely reach out to them for your next event!” –Google
WOW. What an AWESOME review! We had to post this just because we were so thankful for such a heartfelt response. We were happy to provide all the services for this big day. Above all, we have to give credit to the one who captured the entire day, Amanda Sutton… I mean… just LOOK at these pictures!

These pictures say more than we ever could. Capturing a specific vibe is not easy. However, Amanda Sutton Photography absolutely nailed it.
And as a final note, we just need to say… We absolutely love what we do. Being a part of the unique and personal ways couples celebrate is why we do it. And we loved being a part of this celebration. It’s always awesome to see how couples choose to celebrate.
In conclusion, we’ve learned that being a wedding DJ isn’t just about playing the music. So we take our role seriously. Facilitating such a big day is a serious job! That’s why we always give every wedding or event our all.
Another success story from Greensboro.
