Why DJ Lou Paris?
There are lots of DJs out there. What makes me unique?
First, congratulations on your engagement!
Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, and it may seem overwhelming. Your mind races as you consider all the options. The venue (be it in the Hudson Valley or anywhere for that matter), the flowers, the food, the photographer… These are all big decisions! But one of the most important and sometimes overlooked is your choice of a wedding DJ. The success of your wedding depends largely on the experience of your wedding entertainer. So why choose Paris Creative?
Lou was always accessible and the sound was great. We were coming from San Francisco so communicating was difficult with other vendors, but not with Lou. We had a diverse crowd coming from all over the world and he kept everyone dancing the whole time!
Experience, Guidance, and Exceptional Service
I’m here to help guide you through the entire process from our very first conversation, through all the meetings to talk about the specifics of your special night, right through the end of your wedding. My personality and presentation style is low-key. I create a fun and inviting atmosphere for your guests without being a “hype” DJ who needs to be constantly on the microphone. Simply put I provide an exceptional service without being overt. And unlike some of my competitors you are getting me, and only me, throughout the entire process. I am here to make sure that all the details are covered and that you have the confidence that I will execute our well-thought out plan for your wedding entertainment.
Lou did a great job with our wedding. We had a pretty customized set of requests, and Lou was happy to cater to them. He was very professional, but much like a friend, which was comforting given the more intimate feel of our 60-guest wedding.
A Focus On Music And Management
Speaking of entertainment, wedding music has the very unique requirement of entertaining a crowd from ages eight to eighty. I have an extensive knowledge of music and the ability to seamlessly mix music from all these genres and periods to get the crowd moving. When you choose Paris Creative we’ll go over all the critical songs you want to hear and on your wedding day I will weave those songs into a live mix that your wedding guests are sure to dance to! My job is to read the crowd while keeping your preferences front and center.
And when I am not concentrating on the ebb and flow of the music selection I am working in tandem with the venue and all your vendors, ensuring that we are all in sync and working as a team to make your wedding incredible.
So you may be wondering what my service costs. I have my very simple pricing options and once we have a discussion about your expectations, you will see I offer exceptional value at a very competitive price.
He was so prompt, and went over all the details, making us feel very comfortable leading up to the day of the wedding. Lou was a fantastic DJ and kept people on the dance floor all night without being overly present or cheesy in any way.
