"THANK YOU This wedding night was LEGENDARY. As a part-time wedding planner for my Aunt’s wedding, I booked with DJ Casanova and working with him was the easiest part of it all. He represented to us exactly the type of DJ we wanted. DJ Casanova crushed it at the wedding!! He kept the dance floor full all night, and the
transitions and song choices were great. Wait, did I mention this was a Persian and Italian mix wedding? So just imagine the song selections, the lists that were given to him and the requests that he received. We couldn’t have been any happier with booking him. I along with my family will definitely book him again for any occasion and won’t hesitate to recommend him to others. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!! Thank you again for accepting us so last minute and for being amazing as the most important part of the wedding. Much Love!" -Saghar
