DJ Zimmie and Modern Event Solutions could not have been better.
Zimmie was so flexible about how we communicated in the preceding months, enabling us to email anything from long lists to random thoughts, and he always provided thoughtful responses.
He totally understood the tastes we prefer and the vibe(s) we had in mind, even when we totally pivoted away from the one piece of guidance we gave him in our initial discussion.
Zimmie knew just what to play — and what to NOT play. He did a *phenomenal* job of knowing when to honor requests from the audience and when to…acknowledge them and then put them aside. This was both in accordance with the “blacklist” of no-no’s we provided but also, more broadly, based on his own judgment. We agreed with every call he made.
We needed some very tight coordination around our first dance, and Zimmie was on point. After that, we just wanted things to be as festive and high-energy as possible throughout, and Zimmie delivered on that 100%.
We could not have been happier with what Zimmie brought to our wedding. As we look back, we wish we could have our wedding again every month…in that dream scenario, we would be happy to use DJ Zimmie every time.

As wedding season approaches, the sharks come out. The difference between an amazing DJ and someone that just started DJing last week is usually only a few hundred dollars. Be sure to check references and watch out for the bait & switch. This is a real ad from Craigslist.
I’ve done quite a few parties for Ruby Receptionists and every party really outdoes the previous. December’s holiday party was masquerade themed at Jacobsen Salt Company. Highlights included aerialists from Aerial Muse Collective and delicious treats from Mezzaluna Catering. The Ruby crew is always in the spirit so guests came decked out with an amazing array of masks. View all the photos from this and other parties in the gallery.
Sometimes you don’t realize how expensive saving a few dollars is until it’s too late. As the old saying goes, “Good DJs are rarely cheap, cheap DJs are rarely good…”.
