Review Bow Tied Weddings
Thank you for submitting your review. All submissions are reviewed before being published.
We had the pleasure of working with Bow Tied Weddings our whole wedding weekend. They were absolutely INCREDIBLE!! They helped run all the Friday rehearsal details, emceed and DJed our rehearsal dinner. On Saturday, wedding day, Bow Tied Weddings made our big day go so smoothly: from setup-details, emceeing, coordinating the whole day, creating the wedding time line and of course having the BEST DANCE PARTY we could ask for. For our Sunday wedding brunch, they were there to help us end the best weekend ever with playing fun tunes.
From the moment we met Bow Tied Weddings, they immediately offered to help us through this wedding process. They recommended vendors and answered any questions we had along the way. They made it a point to built a relationship with us & our other wedding vendors.
Bow Tied Weddings went above and beyond professionally but also personally. We think so highly of them and all they did to make our wedding weekend so special. We truly love them and will now always have a special place for Bow Tied Weddings in our hearts. By the time we had to part for the weekend there were definitely some tears because they put so much heart & soul into their clients. We would highly recommend Bow Tied Weddings to make your day or wedding weekend perfect!
Worth every penny!
I would absolutely recommend Bow Tied Weddings! Matthew was the DJ for our wedding, and he was VERY responsive and engaged in the planning process from my initial video chat about pricing to the day of the wedding. I was particularly looking for someone on the younger side to make sure we threw a great party for our young friends in their 20's all the way up to our grandparents. He exceeded our expectations by offering to meet with us often to discuss the event and providing great equipment (including mic'ing for the ceremony) and a clean set up. Matthew was clearly well versed in all things weddings, and was surprisingly helpful with unrelated questions like how to stock our open bar! Bow Tied Weddings charges a lot for their services, but you're paying for the DJ's time and attention throughout the year, and that is worth the cost to a lot of brides.
Never an empty dance floor!
Matthew was GREAT to work with! He was extremely energetic, flexible, responsive, and so pleasant to work with in the months leading up to the big day and of course on the day of! Matthew always put us first and listened to our wants -- the reception was a huge success! We had multiple people asking about our music and DJ; the dance floor was never empty - Matthew kept the energy flowing all night long!
Guests are still talking about our music!
When I first started looking for a DJ, I wasn't sure where to start. We looked on Wedding Wire and Bow Tied Weddings had great reviews. As soon as my husband and I met with Matthew, we instantly knew why. Matthew was fun and personable and we knew he would help us create the party of our dreams. He was always available to meet with us whether over video or in person and guided us through the process. Don't hesitate to ask Matthew about non-music related questions; he really knows his stuff and has amazing ideas! He helped us create a floor plan that suited our needs and desires better than what we had come up with on our own. Come wedding day, Matthew was available for myself and my husband for any and all last minute questions and to put a drink in my hand. The music was awesome and our guests raved! If you want a party to remember, hire Bow Tied Weddings!
Fun, energetic, with a can-do-attitude!
We were extremely happy with our experience with Bow Tied Weddings! Matthew was extremely responsive and easy to work with from day 1! He drove all the way to Warrenton from Richmond for our walk-through and we are so glad he did! He was profoundly helpful in deciding where everything should be placed for our reception and strongly advocated for us with our venue coordinator. We also had a rather challenging ceremony site and he conquered it like the pro he is! Matthew did an amazing job with our song list and incorporating the eclectic requests we had! He even stayed late when we had an unexpected rain delay for cocktail hour and made the best of it- even dancing away the rain while drying off the dance floor! We could not recommend him or his company more highly! If you want a young, fun, energetic, and can-do-attitude DJ- look no further!
Bow Tied Weddings was THE BEST!!! They came highly recommended to us and the rest is now history. We met Matthew in person for the first time during walk through at the venue. We immediately realized how good we had it. Not only did we feel like we had a DJ but another strong advocate to make sure everything went as planned. He was more than happy to vocalize ideas which was MUCH appreciated. Our wedding night came with unexpected heavy rain and I remember looking out to find him dancing on the floor with towels on his feet so that everything would be dry. He was also soaking wet and could of cared less. He is so positive and of course an AWESOME DJ. All of our guests had a blast. He sure knew how to keep the party going. Bow tied weddings is worth every penny and then some. I am rarely impressed enough to write reviews. Book Bow Tied and you will not be disappointed!!!
Matthew did such a great job DJing our wedding! The COVID pandemic certainly created a unique situation for a DJ, but he handled it with ease. He was very communicative during the planning process and held several video chats with us as we worked through the necessary changes. Even though we were not able to have the huge dance party we may have initially planned, the end result was a wonderful gathering filled with lots of fun and love. We are so grateful to Matthew for his help in making sure we had a night to remember!
Bow Tied Weddings is the most genuine, kind, loving people we have had the honor of meeting. From the very start, their full attention was on us and our wedding day. We had the pleasure of being able to meet them in person a few days ahead of time to get to know each other, finalize song choices and get a feel for how the day would go. Their experience helped us make our tough decisions in a matter of seconds. Matthew was there when we needed recommendations for certain songs (because who knows what song they want to cut the cake to? not us.) They even came to our rehearsal dinner so they could meet our families and bridal party and make sure everyone was comfortable with them. We felt like we had our long-time friends as our DJ and helping hands. Matthew did an amazing job at keeping the flow and making sure everyone was out on the dance floor. At the end of the night when our final shuttle did not arrive as planned, they were gracious enough to take as many as they could back to the hotel, including me and my husband. They went above and beyond what we could have ever expected, and we are so lucky to have had them be a part of our wedding day!
Just amazing - Boom them!
Bow Tied Weddings was just awesome. From the beginning, they were so personable and really took the time to know us as a couple. We had multiple video chats leading up to our wedding which made us feel really comfortable with them. They came by on our rehearsal dinner night and they were just so genuine and kind. They are also hilarious and had us laughing every time we met. Matthew nailed the music on our wedding night and we had the best time. They are the nicest people we've ever met. Book them now!
The Best in the Business
Bow Tied Weddings was phenomenal throughout the entire planning process and on our wedding day! Colin and I could not have picked a better DJ to play music for our cocktail hour, lead our reception festivities and music, and just be a calming, yet fun presence for us. Up until the wedding, they met with us a few times, answering any questions and making sure that everything would be perfect for our day. During the reception, they knew exactly how to make our guests feel comfortable and have a fun time. They gave us the idea of having a last dance while guests were getting ready for our grand exit and we absolutely loved this part of our day! We were blown away by the level of entertainment that Bow Tied Weddings provides. I highly recommend booking with Bow Tied Weddings, they are truly the best!
Bow Tied Weddings was so helpful through the planning process. From the moment we booked even until after our wedding they made sure we had a great experience. I can go on and on about why you should book them but one thing that stands out more than the rest to me is on the day of our wedding, Matthew noticed our crowd liked to be outside rather than inside where he originally had setup. Recognizing that, he asked us if we would be ok (after the formalities finished) if he moved his set outside to better serve our guests. Of course we said yes and it took him 5 minutes to switch locations mid wedding and nobody even noticed because he had music playing on a speaker inside the whole time he moved his stuff. Bow Tied Weddings definitely goes above and beyond for their couples! I recommend booking them for any event!
