“My husband and I hired Jamie as our DJ for our wedding this past September and he did such a fantastic job! He really wanted to get to know what types of music our guests and we loved to listen to and customized the music to fit our group perfectly! On top of DJing our entire wedding, he also helped us live stream our wedding to all of our guests who were not able to make it. He spent so much time making sure everything went perfectly and we are so happy our friends and family who couldn’t travel were able to share our wedding day with us! Jamie was so fun and easy to work with and we are so fortunate to have chosen him for our special day!” – Amanda R.

They aim to play records that connect with the faces and spaces of a night, that serve as a soundtrack to the good times in the here and now, that spark the grooves of memory, and that shake their collective hip bones, that is, records to party down to.

“Lovesick Deejays made our wedding reception/dinner SO fun! Stephen and Ashley were very patient and thoughtful, taking a lot of time to talk with us before our wedding about the types of music we wanted during each part of our day. They had wonderful suggestions and gave a lot of their time to crafting and re-crafting the most perfect set list. On top of catering the music perfectly to the mood and style that we hoped to create on our wedding day, Ashley and Stephen were simply a joy to be around! They were so fun and open, and kept great energy the whole night. If you are looking for amazing deejays who are also kind, awesome people, I highly recommend Lovesick Deejays!” – Ra C.

“My wife and I booked Boutique DJs for our Wedding. We were able to chat with Josh before the event; locking down some of our favorites and not so favorite songs. We had a fun chat about what we were looking for in the flow of the event, dance floor, and evening. IT WAS INCREDIBLE! He was able to seamlessly transition songs, keep the energy up, and even gave us some unique moments made just for our wedding. If we have another event in the area we will definitely be calling Josh and Boutique DJs.” – Domenick C.
