We were connected with the sweetest of sweethearts Karin to dj our wedding at The Greenhouse Loft! She did an incredible job from start to finish and kept the dance floor hoping just like we wanted! She is adorable, smart and does her job well! I highly recommend her for your wedding DJ needs!

DJ Karin was such a perfect addition for our big day! The dance floor was never empty and the song transitions were perfectly timed. She had great ideas for music when we weren't sure what to do and what was played ended up being a perfect mix to keep the crowd moving. We were able to meet with her a few times before the wedding. She asked us questions that we had not even thought of like - the last song of the night. When we weren't sure, she gave us a list of tons of options. Everything went without a hitch and we heard a lot of "WHO IS YOUR DJ?! She's awesome!!" Perfect DJ for a fun carefree reception.

We could not be happier about our decision to work with Toast & Jam!! Our DJ, Karin Fjellman, was absolutely amazing. She played all of the songs we specifically requested, but we also asked her to play anything she thought would keep our guests dancing all night. And she delivered!!!! If I had one person come up to me and tell me the music was amazing, I had at least 15. At the end of the night, our photographer said "you know it's a great wedding when the dance floor is completely full and there are people of all ages on it!" I couldn't agree more! And I credit it all to Karin and Toast & Jam. I would recommend her to anyone and I would re-hire her in a second. Thank you so much for making our night so fun and memorable!

DJ Karin was awesome to work with! She was always professional and responded to our messages quickly. She asked the right questions (things we hadn’t even thought of) and gave us suggestions when we didn’t have ideas about music. All of the contract details and payment information was clear and easy to deal with. With the two pre-wedding meetings (which we could do over phone/Skype) and the extensive song list we were given to review, we felt prepared, like there wasn’t anything for us to worry about on our wedding day. And that was true! Karin came up to us at the reception to introduce herself to us in person, but we didn’t have to think about or do anything related to the music on our wedding day. She took care of her own set-up (spoke directly to our venue to coordinate) and played a steady mix for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. We personally enjoyed the music which flowed throughout the night, and we received many compliments about our DJ. Karin did a wonderful job as an emcee and had a calm, easygoing, fun, professional vibe. She facilitated the speeches, special dances, and announcements perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ.

From our initial meeting with Norah to our farewell at the end of our reception, our experience was perfection. Norah did an amazing job helping us craft a timeline and music selection that kept our guests moving and dancing the whole night long. Our wedding was anything but traditional - we surprised our guests with the ceremony - and Norah helped ground the evening and give it the significance we were looking for. During the planning process and day-of, Norah felt like family. Her suggestions about the flow of the evening were spot on. Our friends and family were so excited with each new song that came on - one guest kept writing them down for her own wedding later this year. We hadn't planned on having a wedding at all, and Norah's contribution to the experience is a big part of why we're so happy we ultimately did.

Wow...where to begin?! Karin was amazing. From day 1 she made our lives so much easier...and wedding planning so much fun! The music was one of the most important things to us & she totally exceeded our expectations. Professional, talented, fun....I would hire her again in a heartbeat!!!

I attended a Toast and Jam wedding in the fall of 2015 and it was the best dance party I had ever attended. When it came time to plan my own wedding, they were the first phone call. Working with Karin was the best! She could not have been more more professional, thoughtful, creative or fun! Our dance party was awesome, guests only left the dance floor to catch their breath. We had an incredible day and could not have done it without Toast and Jam.

Selecting Toast and Jam to DJ our wedding turned out to be one of the best decisions we made. Emily made the entire process fun and easy. She was attentive, suggestive, and totally professional. She created a perfect time line, kept the evening moving, and delivered a soundtrack that our guests still talk about. Our wedding reception was a BLAST from start to finish, and we owe much of it to Emily, and Toast and Jam!

Where do I even begin! I am SO glad we booked Toast & Jam for our wedding! Specifically, Alli Klein! She knocked it out of the ballpark! She constantly checked in with us and made sure everything was what we wanted for our big day! When it came to the wedding day, she killed it! Everyone was dancing and smiling and having the best time! She was awesome! T&J is the best and we will be recommending them to any one we know getting married!!

We live in Florida, so getting married in Chicago was always going to be a challenge. Thankfully, our DJ Alli was one less thing to worry about. From our first meeting on Skype to the last song on wedding night, we received five-star service. Alli played all the songs we asked for and provided invaluable advice when it came to music for cake-cutting, bouquet-tossing, etc. Super-professional from start to finish. Thanks to Alli, Toast & Jam!
