Things are going well for Tim and I. It's great to hear from you. Hope you and the family are doing well also. Everyone still comments on what a "fun" wedding reception we had - couldn't have been done without a good DJ! Thanks and God Bless.
Take Care.

Yes, we are doing wonderfully!
We recently received our wedding video and have enjoyed watching it - we were so thankful for the great job of dj'ing you did for our wedding reception!  My family loved it as well - it was a GREAT dance party. We're recommending you to everyone!

Rob and I have a lovely little apartment over looking Lake Monona. I am back to work teaching at Abundant Life Christian School and Rob is working on his (hopefully!) final year of a PhD in Organic Chemistry! Our lives are full of good things and we love being together :)

Thanks for being in touch!

Thanks again for everything Daryl!!  Everyone said you were the best DJ they've ever heard around here!  You did an AWESOME job. We will be looking you up again in the future for something I'm sure. I'm on the Union Center fire department and we're always looking for good entertainment for our annual party in the park. I will suggest you next year and talk more then. Always 2nd weekend in August.  Thanks again!!

Subject: Thank you

Hi Daryl.

I want to thank you for the great job you did at my mom and dad's (Mr. and Mrs. Mel & Alice Levy's) wedding anniversary party on July 24, 2010.

You had a great selection of music from my parents era and did a super job balancing that with keeping the younger generation on the dance floor as well.

Thanks for helping with the emcee job, too.

Your music made the party a great hit! Who would think a 60th Wedding Anniversary party would be such a fun, dancing time!

 

 

Sincerely,

Ann Marie Peters

Hey Daryl,

What can we say but Horizon Entertainment ROCKS!

We both want to say "Thank You" from the bottom of our hearts for being our wedding reception DJ Friday evening, July 2nd, 2010 at the “Legend of Bergamont” in Oregon, WI.  You are Simply the Best….

We’ve been to a lot of receptions and even though this was our own wedding reception, at no time have we seen such a high percentage of the guests out on the dance floor, throughout the entire evening, dancing the night away!  At no point was the dance floor empty! Every single guest that we spoke to had a good time, which of course is something you already know, as we discussed this with you right after the dance.

The way you were able to play our guests requests and kept everyone entertained throughout the entire evening was simply amazing.  You did an excellent job of going with the flow and reading the crowd.  It was almost as if you could read everyone's mind.  The way you made our evening so fun, memorable and special is something that we will always cherish and NEVER forget! We truly hope to be a part of another couple's wedding reception that experiences the same special pleasure we did and has the honor of having you as their wedding DJ.

We believe you could ask anyone that attended our wedding reception and each one of them would strongly recommend you to anyone that is looking for event entertainment for any special occasion!  In the future, if anyone has any questions about the quality or level of your DJ service, please feel free to have everyone that is interested in booking Horizon Entertainment to contact us.  We would be more than happy to provide you with a reference and tell them about the great experience we had working with you and Horizon Entertainment’s outstanding wedding DJ service.

This DJ was amazing. We talked many times on the phone and met in person a couple of weeks before the wedding. The day of he truly took care of everything; he was super helpful, played all the right music and did a great job! I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He is great!

HORIZON ENTERTAINMENT PROFESSIONAL WEDDING DJ SERVICE responded with the the following comments:


Wow! Thank you so very much for the many KIND WORDS my dear friends. I too had a really AWESOME time at YOUR wedding reception....

What can I say, except You ROCK!

I've had the pleasure of DJ'ing, providing sound reinforcement and entertainment for a "LOT" of weddings over the past two decades or so, but at no time can I remember seeing a higher number of guests out on the dance floor, throughout the entire evening, having fun and dancing the night away!  At no point was the dance floor empty!  Every single guest (that I spoke to) had a wonderful time that evening.

As I've always said to my wedding couples:

"It's all about PLANNING" ... YET, don’t get so overly involved in your wedding reception plans that you forget what Your Special Day IS ALL ABOUT! Your marriage is the beginning of your life together. Make this time fun, memorable and exciting; you'll not regret it.

"You NEVER get a Second Chance to make a Good First Impression" on anyone, including your guests!

"It's ALL about the Bride and Groom ... It's always" about the newlyweds ... NEVER the DJ."

Thanks again for the thumbs up and may God bless your marriage.

DJ Daryl

Hi Dary!

We have received so many nice compliments about you (the DJ) it has been great.  I always say the music can make or break a wedding and you definitely made ours.  As I said that night, we would recommend you to anyone.  We really appreciated everything, despite the confusion we had, when you first arrived, regarding whether or not the wedding ceremony would be held indoors or outdoors - UGH - but in the end, everything turned out great:)  It was also great spending time, after the wedding, speaking with you...  Weren't you exhausted? Especially where you had to sing for church Sunday morning?  It took us a week to recover from that night!  Congratulations to you and Rose on your 23 years of marriage.  That's awesome and a great accomplishment!  I wish you both the best in another 23 plus years!  And with that said, we certainly do like making positive impressions and if our wedding day made a positive impression on you, that is a great accomplishment, because you've been to plenty!

Dear Daryl,

Even though it's been a few weeks now since our daughter's wedding, we are STILL hearing how much fun our guests had at the dance! You are an EXCELLENT DJ and your personality, paired with your professionalism, helped make that day one of the happiest in our family's memory.  If you ever need a word of recommendation, I would be honored to give that.  Thank you for everything you did for us.  I feel as if we had a friend playing the tunes instead of someone whom we just hired.

Most Sincerely,

Kathleen Holly

Daryl-

Thank you so much for being such a special part of our day!  You did the greatest job and made everything perfect!  Super job!

Heather and Chad Hunter

Daryl,

Thank you soooo much for your DJ service at our wedding!  We thought you were absolutely EXCELLENT!  You handled yourself very professionally and impressed our many guests.  That reception was the type we dreamed about and wanted, which is largely due to you!

Thanks!

Andy and Jillian Troxel

Hi Daryl,

Chris & I would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude for the outstanding job that you did for our wedding dance.  We had numerous people compliment us on your outstanding dj performance, quality sound equipment and light show.  They also appreciated the dinner music and your play list.  We feel that you helped make our day extra special.  You have our recommendation in the future and thank you for everything!  We could tell you were having a good time also.

 

P.S.  Thank you for introducing us and the bridal party [Grand Entrance] before dinner.  We also thought you might like to know, since you and my brother were friends while attending the University of Wisconsin--Platteville,  Chad broke his foot that night, apparently when he jumped off a table.  Chad broke his foot about 12:30 a.m., but continued to dance and put pressure on it until the hall shut us down at bar time!  Chad thought he had sprained it, however, when he woke up the next morning, he couldn't walk on it!

Feel Free to use us as references, anytime!

Thank you so much for the great music you played at our wedding dance April 30, 2005.  We had a great time!  I have never seen my husband dance so much.  I provided you with a short list of music that we liked and you filled in the rest exceptionally well.  Every song you played was great to dance to and we liked them all.  You kept our guests around, enthused and dancing the entire night.  We appreciated all that you did to make our wedding day extra special.  It really meant a lot to us.  Please accept this gift as a token of our appreciation.

Thanks again!

Dear Daryl-

Just a quick note to say thank you for the great job you did on Saturday night at our 50th Wedding Anniversary party.  We know this wasn't your usual job as I'm sure you're used to a lot of partying and more dancers.  We wish we hadn't been so tired as we really do like to dance and would have done more of it -- the music was just great!  We also appreciated your keeping the volume at a level where people could enjoy it, yet still talk.  We have had several calls this week where our guests mentioned they really enjoyed the music.  Thank to for doing this at the last minute.  Maybe we will be able to attend a wedding party when you're doing the music.  Hope so!  Thanks again...

Sincerely,

Nancy and Don Hamilton

Thanks again from Dave Wannstedt and the Chicago Bears,

Deb Putnam, University of Wisconsin-- Platteville, Events Coordinator for the Chicago Bears Training Camp

Hey Daryl-

It's good to have you back.  Wow!  Thank you so much for doing such a super, super job!  I have heard so many good comments about the wide variety of "great sounding" music that was played at the picnic.  Thanks for keeping the volume down also.  I'm sure the wedding party at the church next door appreciated your consideration as well.  We really appreciate all your hard work and look forward to having you back again next year, the first weekend in August.  Mark it on your calendar!  P.S.  If you need references, please don't hesitate to call me.

Sincerely,

There's no way I can thank you enough for what you did for us ... but if you ever need references, we're it!  I'd like to take this time to say thank you for making my parents 50th wedding anniversary a very special day.  The music you selected was so appropriate and your singing/Karaoke machine was very enjoyable.  Again, my family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Who Should You Choose for Your Photographer?

Choosing a photographer for your wedding is one of your most important vendor decisions. Photographers vary in their personality, their photographic style, how they work with the wedding party, how much experience they have, the quality of the equipment they use, the packages they provide, as well as the final products they produce. So you’re not just hiring someone to take pictures. No matter how you look at it, you’re getting a package deal. The question is, what will the package include?

 

The Package Deal


Many photographers today include their photographs on a DVD. The wise bride or groom will ask if those photographs have been edited. Photographs that are completely unedited are often less than what they could be. Yes, some of the photographs will look okay; but trust me. Edited photographs can look spectacular, and what you might think are crummy photographs can look pretty good when they are edited. I have photographs, such as the one below that is not the best because of the brides dark eyes, but after editing and working on the image it has since become one of my favorites.

 

Original unedited photograph

Ashley Walk1 Who Should You Choose for Your Photographer?

After editing

Ashley Walk21 Who Should You Choose for Your Photographer?

 

If the photographer states that digital negatives are included on the DVD, be wary that these may be unedited photographs. James Studio edits every photograph customers receive. Photographs that are used in albums, those which are purchased online, and those which are enlarged, are all given additional editing time. This makes them superior photographs like the

ones you see on this web site.

 

Ashley 4 Who Should You Choose for Your Photographer?

 

Second, ask whether the photographs you receive will be of a high-resolution quality. Many photographers only provide a low-resolution version that only has enough resolution available for printing small 4 x 6- or 5 x 7-inch photographs. James Studio provides high-resolution photographs that can be printed in any standard size.

 

Third, you need to consider what is included in the package. Does the package include an album? Albums included in our packages are a significant savings over an album purchased separately. If you want a professional, heirloom-quality album, think about choosing a package that includes an album. The more expensive the package, the better the quality of the album and number of sides it includes.

 

Album 41 Who Should You Choose for Your Photographer?

An inside page of a James Studio album.

Album 3 Who Should You Choose for Your Photographer?

Another inside page of a James Studio album.

 

But packages can also include engagement sessions, reception-growing-up-video slide shows, enlargements and wall portraits. So pay attention to what is included in the package.

 

The Photographer

As part of the package deal you’re not just getting pictures and albums, you’re also hiring a photographer. So what qualities should you look for in a photographer? In some ways the answer is obvious. You look at the photographer’s work and decide on whether you like the pictures or not. Also, when speaking with a photographer you need to decide on whether you are comfortable with this person. Does the person seem competent and relaxed? Does the photographer ask questions about you?  Is the photographer interested in your story?

 

Also consider the art value of the photographer brings.   When you look at the photographer’s pictures, is there a blurred background? In most photos it should be.  Not every picture has to have a blurred background; portraits and formal pictures often do not. But artistic pictures often do have  an attractive out-of-focus blur. If the photographer does not produce pictures that have a blurred background or don’t position the bride & groom with different or interesting backgrounds then the pictures are likely going to be either very formal or un-artistic.

 

Who You Should Not Hire As Your Photographer
You should not hire a photographer whose pictures you do not like, whose pictures are not artistic, or whose pictures do not have the subject in clear focus. You should not hire someone whom you consider to be too proud or stand offish, kind of quirky, unreliable, too busy, or unavailable. In addition, you should not use a friend or relative to shoot your wedding.

 

Why You Should Not Choose a Friend or Relative to Shoot Your Wedding
Choosing a friend or relative to photograph your wedding can result in huge savings. However, don’t let this motivating factor blind you to other issues when considering who to hire for your once-in-a-lifetime wedding photographer.

It has been a hard lesson for me to learn, but my wife has convinced me that it is inappropriate to try to sell things to my friends, family, and even neighbors. Why? Because if they buy something, they may do it out of a feeling of obligation, and if they don’t buy, it can cause stress in the relationship. So let’s suppose your friend or relative offers to photograph your wedding. If you are not altogether happy with the photographs, it will likely create hurtful feelings between you. And if the person is not a professional who shoots weddings frequently, you’ll likely be disappointed.

 

Let’s suppose that your friend or relative offers to do this job for very little or no money. Remember–photography done right is a very big job and could constitute the most generous gift of your wedding. The person or persons shooting the wedding may, out of a generous heart, want to do it for free, but may find it to be a burdensome task in the end. It is a significant investment of time, and if it is done well, it will be much more than you imagine. This whole process may strain your relationship or strain an internal relationship with a spouse who may not feel as generous! In addition, the friend or relative might do better by simply enjoying that day with the others rather than working.

 

Be sure to ask the photographer if the images will be edited before you receive them.  As shown in the first point of this article, it is a fundamental factor for having professional looking images.   Unless you have very low expectations, you will not be happy with the photography if the images are not edited.   However, editing alone can take 15-25 hours for one wedding.   Lets do some the math.  A wedding generally produces 1,000 to 1,500 digital images.  Editing 100 images per hour (which is unrealistic) would take 10 to 15 hours of hard concentrated time, professional software (such as Lightroom and Photoshop) and artistic skill.   Therefore, by having your photography done by a friend or family member you will likely either get substandard images OR you will be getting a gift that is way beyond other gifts because of the time needed to do the job right.

 

Ashley 1 Who Should You Choose for Your Photographer?

 

In many cases a friend or relative wanting to help you out will not have the experience and artistic eye to know how to arrange people to get quality, artistic photographs. In addition, their photographic equipment is likely marginal at best for producing professional-looking photographs. A professional photographer has professional cameras, lenses and editing software that helps to produce quality photographs. And a professional photographer has the experience to guide you through your wedding day to make it all happen more smoothly and joyfully.

 

At James Studio we are interested in helping you enjoy your day.  We provide fun, contemporary images and utilize our experience to achieve creativity and color-rich photography.  James Studio provides a business model that is relationship oriented and we use some of the best equipment available.   If you hire James Studio you will be cared for along the way.

A Good Way to Keep Your Wedding Reception out of Jeopardy – Hire a DJ Company that is Debt Free!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

If you’re hiring a disc jockey / DJ for your wedding reception, there is something important that you may want to keep in mind. In fact, this article is something that you may want to read and consider before signing a wedding DJ contract.

 

What is tragic about the current state of the economy is that it is also affecting and many times adversely impacting many DJs and Disc Jockey companies. Perhaps even more importantly, today’s economy may be distressing larger DJ entertainment companies more than it is the smaller DJ entertainment providers.  When operating any type of substantial business operation, it’s often all about obtaining credit or in other words, it’s all about the debt.  Typically, the smaller the company, the less debt!  Presently, many large companies and corporations are unable to obtain the credit financing they need to stay in business; hence, some companies are simply going bankrupt and in turn, many of these companies are going out of business.  Although no company can control the economy, a smaller company is more likely to be able to control its debt, and also more likely to be able to maintain an emergency fund.  Knowing this information simply adds to Horizon Entertainment’s motivation and continued commitment to never use debt to finance our business.

 

Consider the following article:

 

Wedding deal gone bad: Deejay company reneges on promise

 

Attention ALL Brides:  If you’re hiring a disc jockey for your reception, this is a story you need to read.

A St. Charles woman says she’s living a nightmare just days before her wedding, and she’s not the only one.  
 
Just Google the words “A Solid Gold Sound,” and red flags go up. Ripoff Report’s website lists consumer complaints about the company.
 
One person writes they used to work for the company, and customers are lucky if a deejay shows up.

Kristi During met them at a Chesterfield wedding show, and says she booked them more than a year ago. Everything seemed great up until a week ago, she says.

 

After paying more than $500, she called to talk about what songs she wanted to hear at her wedding this Saturday.

She discovered the company’s website was unavailable, and its phone number no longer worked. She says her mother went to what she thought was its business address only to discover  a UPS store in a Maryland Heights strip mall instead.

Dan Sims runs Complete Music in Creve Coeur. His company jumped in to help, and he says During isn’t alone. Four brides have already called him since they can’t reach A Solid Gold Sound. He says the company has had a questionable track record for years.

“I believe this is the third time this company has done this. They come to town here for a period of time, [and] next thing you know they are gone and take people’s money,” he says.

 

According to the Missouri Secretary of State’s office, the company is based in Kentucky, but its business name registration with the state expired last year.
