I don't know about you, but music is in the top 3 most important deatils of my wedding. 1 is obviously the groom, no contest. Location is 2 and tied for 3rd is music & photographer. On second thought, they might even beat out location in my book. Great music can electrify a drab room, bring elegance to a barn yard or romance to a warehouse.
Having lived in Chicago for more than half of my adult life I had tons of venue ideas for this wedding. But as I've mentioned, those were all happily (after a minute) thrown out the window for a more econimical location in Northwest Indiana. There was one thing I was not going to sacrifice and that was my choice of DJ.
Luckily I didn't have to. Toast and Jam DJ's are run out of Chicago, yes. However, they will travel for you! It's at a little extra cost, but they are worth it. I don't know how far they will actually go...you Indy brides or Southern Indiana gals may have to find your equivalent (and tell me about them!)
But Northwest Indiana brides - you have access to a group of amazing women DJ's who do far more than just weddings (There is one guy, who I'm sure also rocks.) They all have kick ass credentials and DJ all around the city.
Check out their Sample Song List - Their "Stale" list just about read my mind and I was so impressed with the "Sweet."
