"We went with A & A primarily because of their professionalism and the fact that they were recommended by our other vendors. Our wedding and reception were both wonderful! Michael was a big part of the success of our celebration. He was easy
to work with and helped to make the evening fun for our guests. Thank you so much."

"We definitely felt as though we got everything we paid for and I would gladly recommend them to anyone. The assistance I received during the planning
process was invaluable. I would use them again, and actually I have."

"Honestly, we had another “interview” with another DJ company and they didn’t show up to the appointment. It was meant to be! We couldn’t be more thrilled with our not-so-difficult decision to go with A & A. The reception planner was very helpful. Larry and April both personally offered good advice and tips and things to remember to help the evening run smoothly. Their attention to detail was impeccable and so helpful. We have had SO many people tell us how much they enjoyed the photo booth. We did too, although we just barely slid in to use it at the last minute. It gave guests something to do before the bridal party arrived, as well as during the rest of the evening. It was a big hit… You guys are awesome! Thank you, thank you,
thank you!! Ashley & David"

"Our meeting with Larry and April sold us and they were very helpful during the planning process. Michael was excellent and everything went perfectly."
Clarion Hotel Mary & James Kelly 5/25/2013
"Whenever we called the office to talk to April or Larry they were very wonderful. Always extremely kind, understanding and helpful. We felt they gave us a great
price with our discount for our Sunday wedding, which highly influenced our decision. Also, how friendly and helpful the contact between us was. A surprise we received was a light package that we didn’t pay for, but when Tony put them up at the reception I loved them! Tony was great. Very attentive to our wishes, fun to interact with, just overall great! Overall I am extremely pleased with our experience. Everything was so worry-free. This was the most stress-free part of planning our wedding. I couldn’t be more grateful!"

"My dad, the father of the bride, had seen Larry at another wedding in the summer of 2012 and really enjoyed the way he kept the guests engaged. My night was a huge success due in large part to Larry and his crew. The reception was a blast and ALL
ages were able to enjoy the music and entertainment. Thank you for your hard work
and enthusiasm during such a special time in our lives."

"The office staff was extremely helpful during the planning and I give Tony 100% of the credit for the success of our event."
Piedmont Club Olivia & Casey Griffith 6/1/2013
"Larry and April, you guys were / are one of the best I have ever worked with.
You were always there when we needed something. An “A+++”
We attribute 100% of the credit for the success of our night to the services you provided. Right from the start, when we met you all we were sold on doing the “Love Story,” because it expressed to our guests how we fell in love, especially some of the guests who had never met me, or those who hadn’t met Matt. The length and timing were perfect. It felt as if the audience could visually see how we met and it was explained perfectly. We had a number of people tell us that they loved the idea and wished they had used it when they got married. The entire story melted our hearts because you had put so much extra time and effort into it. I loved that you added in the songs throughout each important part of the story.
We also fell in love with the photo booth right away. Not just because of the idea of having it, but from both of your personalities. We never felt as though you just wanted the business, but that you wanted us to have a memorable wedding reception, and you both went beyond achieving that goal. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed having the photo booth. Everyone loved it including my father and grandparents
who are truly conservative people. I could go on and on about how much fun our guests had with it.
It was truly a hit. We loved using the props. They were exactly what we wanted.
I even received a thank you letter from someone on Matt’s side who are in the 80’s who said they had never had so much fun at a wedding, and they loved the photo booth."

"Meeting with Larry & April back in 2012 sold me on A & A before I even could look anywhere else! You love what you do and it shows. When we chatted at the bridal show in Winston Salem and I found out how much detail we could put in to the reception planning before the event, I was convinced. I was a little surprised by
some of the “oldies” played for dance music because I wasn’t clear when I checked “oldies” in the music selections and thought that was just for dinner. (ha ha). Something really cool happened that I hadn’t planned for though. The older family crowd loved the music and danced, and as they began to leave, Larry began to play more contemporary “pop” dance music and brought all of our younger friends to the dance floor! I couldn’t have planned that any better! Larry was very receptive to my requests during the event. I never once felt as though I was bothering him when I asked to move things around on the schedule. (I know my parents requested some things too, and his answer was always “sure dear.” I loved having the help with the planning beforehand (thanks April) and the flexibility during the event."

"The fact that A & A is a preferred vendor for Graylyn Conference Center was a major factor in our choice. Paula's personal endorsement reinforced that. The pre-event planner was very valuable. April and Larry answered a lot of questions about what was appropriate both in terms of music and the schedule. Tracy and Calvin were very pleased with the fact that they were in charge of the song selection and the type of music played. Larry did an amazing job delivering the service we hoped for and ensuring that the reception was fun and in good taste. Thank you!!"

"Larry and April were incredible, made me feel at ease, had great ideas, and I was immediately comfortable with their service. We have received multiple comments about how well Michael performed. Some guests specifically said that he was the best DJ they had ever seen. He seemed to have fun being there and that energy permeated the dance floor. Michael was excellent and far exceeded our expectations. The best decision we made about the reception was including the "Photo-Booth Experience." It made the night soooo much fun. The girls managing the booth were exceptional - They managed the flow of things while letting everyone have a great time with the props and just being silly. It was so much fun and added just the right amount of activity that everyone could enjoy. To reiterate, I am not sure it could have been so successful without those people managing it. The girls were super and let us know about things going on in a very professional manner."

"One of our guests commented that Michael struck the perfect balance between being enthusiastic and not being cheezy. We loved the photo-booth, and so did our guests. Michael was very helpful and a genuinely nice guy. We appreciated the humor and personality that he brought to the event. It was especially great that he helped pump our guests up for our Mulan song. Our photo-booth was one of our very favorite parts of the event! Our guests loved it - everyone from the teenagers in the youth group to Hayley's 83 year old grandmother seemed to enjoy hamming it up for the camera. We will treasure our scrapbook / guest book forever. We had an absolute blast looking through it the night after the wedding. Quite honestly, we didn't even realize that some of the guests had attended until we saw them in the photos, so we were pleasantly surprised. Thanks again for everything ! You guys were wonderful to work with."
Carolina Theater Hayley & Drew Curry 9/21/2013
"After the wedding we heard from a lot of our friends and family that our DJ (Michael) was GREAT!!! Young and old enjoyed the dancing and the music. Michael did a great job keeping the atmosphere fun and the guests on the dance floor! Thank you so much!"

"The service we received was exceptional and far exceeded our expectations. Jen & Mason were very pleasant and helpful."
Heritage HillMary & Geoff Taylor10/5/2013
"We hired A & A because you were highly recommended by Graylyn Conference Center and also the fantastic reviews we saw on Wedding Wire. Getting a discount for having our event on a Friday was nice too. Michael was wonderful. A++++++++ He was professional during the event and maintained a good balance of asking us the right questions and taking care of things as needed. He was very flexible with our schedule of events and very accommodating. Everyone had a great impression of Michael and had a great time. I could not have been happier with his performance. Thanks again Michael!!"

"Larry & April were very knowledgeable and gave great suggestions for how to set up the event. They were also very friendly and showed a great concern for us as a couple and made sure that our needs were being met. Tony kept the event on schedule and made sure we didn't miss a thing. He was an excellent DJ and went above and beyond to ensure everyone was having a good time."
Bona Manzee Christina & Brandon Mullins 11/2/2013
"I felt the service we received was exceptional and far exceeded our expectations. The "Love Story" was amazing and the photo-booth was so much fun that everyone who attended is still talking about it."

"When we were shopping, we found the reviews on TheKnot.com to be outstanding. Also, A & A was the only disc jockey company to respond quickly, professionally and kindly to all of my inquiries. A & A did an outstanding job. Your input in the scheduling was invaluable. You made the event appear to be seamless. We really appreciated your attentiveness to our needs and to our guests. Everyone who attended had an amazing time and commented on how great the DJ (Larry) was and how much fun they had in the photo-booth. I cannot think of one negative thing to say. You did an amazing job. We absolutely loved the photo-booth and so did our guests. The open air concept was great because so many people were able to fit in each photograph. Your staff kept it running so smoothly and the scrapbook is amazing. We loved looking through it after we got back from our honeymoon. Wonderful memories. April did a fantastic job making everyone feel comfortable. The props made it that much more fun. One of our guests has told us that they are using the photo from the booth for their Christmas cards. I have to say that we absolutely loved our "Love Story" as well, and so did our guests. We have had so many of our guests tell us that it was their favorite part of the reception. You did a terrific job presenting it and it was so romantic. We would recommend it to anyone. And since most of our guests were from out of town and some of them were people that either Sean or I were meeting for the first time, it was so nice to share our story with them. We loved it."

"You could not have picked a better team for us! Tony and Mason were absolutely perfect. They truly made the night. I was so happy to find out that Tony was from the same religious background as us and so he understood the importance of asking our guests to sign our marriage certificate. Mason helped our guests have a blast with the karaoke. Our families had nothing but the highest praise for both of them."
