“After scouring the yellow pages for a last minute DJ for my wedding, it was very obvious to the guests that this guy had no clue. He mispronounced names, and introduced my wife by her maiden name all night. This is your special day! You want to have someone who understands this… and pays attention to details. That’s what we strive to do!” – JC Phillips
