Kayla & Kyle - June 20th 2010
As the mother of the bride, you want to make sure everything is perfect for your daughter’s wedding day. We live in Salt Lake City and my daughter wanted to have her wedding in Lake Tahoe. So, we decided to make a trip to Lake Tahoe last October to meet with all the Vendor’s before winter hit. When it was time to decide on the music for the wedding, we met with 3 different DJ’s and in the end, the kids chose Lake DJ – Derek Tarpey. Derek did an amazing job at the wedding. He was extremely accommodating to my daughter's selection of music and knew exactly what to do to keep the reception moving.
You made my daughter’s wedding very memorable Derek and you exceeded my husbands and my expectations. If anyone out there is looking for a DJ for an upcoming event, I highly recommend Lake DJ. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
