We wanted someone who would keep people on the dance floor at all times.
Grant Hemond & Associates was the DJ for my dad’s wedding nine years ago! They were great and really got everyone dancing all night.
Music was incredibly important to us. Over the course of our engagement, we compiled playlists of music we wanted to have played during cocktail hour or dinner, in other words, songs that we really liked but that you couldn’t really dance to, songs we wanted for the reception, as well as a “do not play” list. I've been to enough weddings to know that the DJ makes all of the difference in whether or not the reception is fun for the guests.
As I researched DJs, I noticed Grant Hemond & Associates had been in business for over three decades and had thousands of glowing five-star reviews online. I liked that they could do the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, as well as provide uplighting. We had Craig Hemond as our DJ and he was just phenomenal. He spent over two hours with us on the phone, discussing how the music would go for the ceremony, cocktail hour, wedding party intros, and reception, and answering every question I had. He was incredibly thorough and just the nicest guy you could ever hope to meet. Craig totally understood what I wanted for my reception, I told him I needed this to be a throwback to the late 90s/early 2000s. He knew how to get people on that dance floor, and everyone had such a fun time! And he made our reception look amazing as well with the uplighting, which we asked to be a dark teal color. He also had the ability to change the colors throughout the night and to have them change along with the beat of the music.
I had worked with Grant Hemond & Associates for a few years and was always impressed by the level of service by not only their DJs but their office staff as well. In planning my own wedding, I had pretty much made my mind up about hiring them when I came across their 5-star reviews and figured they have to be doing everything right to earn such a rating!
We knew we needed someone who struck the perfect balance of friendly and lively, but not too chatty and overbearing.
DJ Adam from Grant Hemond & Associates was spot-on. He found a way to mix our very eclectic music style (ranging from reggae to country to pop and throwbacks) and made it all flow seamlessly. From our first phone interview with DJ Adam, we knew he’d be a great fit for our personalities and that of our guests. He was very laid-back and professional, and the office staff was just the same. The company came recommended by The Don CeSar, so we had trust built-in from the start.
We wanted a reputable DJ company that also provided additional services, such as additional lighting options and a photo booth.
We hired Grant Hemond & Associates because they had great reviews and multiple services, like the photo booth option. We were happy with all the services and products they provided. During the reception, we incorporated songs from all different music genres that we enjoy listening to together, including country, hip-hop, and some classic oldies like Frank Sinatra.
We wanted someone who knows how to keep the party going and knew a large range of music.
We chose Grant Hemond & Associates because all of their DJs are amazing, but we specifically requested Jason Tally. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him in the past, and his knowledge and positive attitude are unmatched!
Also, with COVID, it was important to us to choose a company that would have a backup available just in case!
