Hiring Chris Laich to be our wedding DJ was the best investment that we made for our Big Day. Chris's music transformed the event from an ordinary go-through-the-motions wedding into an amazing party that kept people out and celebrating until well past 2AM. Here's why he's awesome:
1. Amazing music and read of the crowd; Great equipment. Chris's music really breathed life into the event. Chris had our crowd up and dancing at the first opportunity. Every song brought more people to the floor--everyone from grandparents/in-laws to little kids--and there was never a time when the party was lagging. Also important: Chris has awesome sound equipment. Rather than the typical big black speakers that blast music from one corner of the room, Chris has a sound system that was practically hidden, but projected equally throughout our event space. Everyone appreciated this acoustical set-up because it allowed for everyone to hear music and toasts easily.
2. Communicative, professional, prompt. Chris was great about communicating with me before the wedding about songs, timing for certain parts of the wedding (toasts, speeches, entrances etc). He had great ideas and suggestions and raised questions that I never would have thought about otherwise. He was very professional as well. On our wedding day, Chris and his staff showed up very well-dressed and set up everything very unobtrusively.
3. Incredibly knowledgeable. Calling Chris early in my wedding planning was one of the most helpful things that I did for myself. Since he's very familiar with the DC wedding scene, he pointed me toward good other vendors (even before I hired him!) and cautioned me about possible pitfalls.
My husband and I agree that we'd love to have another wedding--if only for the music!
Instant party on the dancefloor. We really wanted a non-stop party after the formalities of the first dance and whatnot were done...they really made this happen.
