Kitty and I were very pleased with the way our wedding turned out. Dave really went above and beyond our expectations, and because of him, the wedding was a total success. Our DJ cancelled a couple of days before the wedding, via text, and Dave was able to take care of it without a hitch. We had so many compliments on the food, service, and the venue itself, that we have and will continue to recommend the friendly buffalo to everyone we know. Thanks again for making our day so special, Rus & Kitty Lehman

It seems that we all have a family member or friend who is a Photographer these days, but are they truly professionals? Shooting a wedding is a very exhausting and difficult task. Lighting and getting good quality photographs can be a really big challenge for anyone. You are constantly moving and taking pictures in both light and dark locations all day. If you want GOOD quality pictures, ideas for poses and direction on what pictures to take, you best leave it up to the pros.
We have built a custom, online event planner with questions that pertain to your entire wedding or special event. It is an excellent guide to planning the perfect event!
We had an outdoor wedding, and reception in a tent in Alexandria, MN. We found MN Pro DJ on the internet when planning and gave him a call. After talking with him he seemed like a good fit so we sent him our PayPal deposit (very convenient) right away. Dave was very professional, answered all of our questions, and even made a special trip to Alexandria a month before the wedding in order to go over a few things, as well as evaluate the electrical capabilities of where the reception was being held since this was the first wedding ever had there. This was a huge help and stress reliever. He answered all of our questions, and they were able to accommodate all of our requests, including providing a microphone and music for the actual ceremony as well as the reception.
After the ceremony, he had to move all of his equipment from the ceremony up to the reception site in order to play some background music for the cocktail hour. We didn't even notice him moving his stuff, and he was playing music again faster than we could have hoped.
We had originally planned to announce the grand march ourselves, but changed last minute (literally, maybe 5 minutes before) and decided to have Dave announce. We also changed our fist wedding party dance song last minute as well. Dave was great with all the last minute changes and it was just a huge relief that he was willing to do whatever he needed and could to help our day be perfect.
Song selection at the reception was awesome. We had multiple compliments that they played such a great variety of music, and Dave did an awesome job keeping people on the dance floor. It was packed all night. Apparently someone at our reception made a list of almost 20 songs that were all one genre, and Dave had noticed that whenever songs similar to ones on the list were played, everyone seemed to leave the dance floor. He approached us and suggested that he maybe mix in a few here and there rather than playing them all, so we definitely appreciated him paying attention to what was working and what wasn't, rather than just hanging out and not caring how much fun everyone was having.
Dave had to leave (he told us well before the wedding day) about halfway through the dance for a personal commitment, and the person who came and replaced him (Andru) from MN Pro DJ did just as awesome of a job, and was willing to stand on a table at the end of the night and take a picture of everyone who stuck it out the whole time.
For such a random discovery of MN Pro DJ, we just googled DJ's in MN, we couldn't be happier to have landed on Dave/MN Pro DJ. Dave was a huge help with everything, did everything we asked, and just did an all around fantastic job. My bride and I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND using MN Pro DJ to any/everyone that we can. Great Job all around.
