This is Feeling Photography
Toast and Jam, specifically Jess LeMaster, was absolutely incredible to work with. Jess guided us from Day 1, with a calming presence, through exactly what we needed to know to feel confident that the music on our wedding day would be on point. And it WAS!!! We are still getting compliments on how good it was and many friends are asking us about T & J for their upcoming weddings. We can't say enough good, not only about the company and their process, but about these DJs being such quality people, a joy to work with. Jess took our input (which let's face it was limited, because we trusted her immediately) - and created music that was the backbone of our event. Because of this and the calm control she took over the day, we were at ease and able to enjoy every minute. T & J - THANK YOU!

Alli Klein was a key player in the celebration of our wedding. As a generous collaborator, she not only included songs important to us, requests from our guests, but also exhibited a mastery in the art and science of reading a crowd, selecting the right tunes at the right time to keep the energy going on the dance floor. Several months after the wedding, our friends and family still mention how she was the perfect choice to be our DJ. The Cubs also won the playoffs during the reception, and she had Go Cubs Go at the ready to pump up the high spirits even more!

Tim was awesome!! He took our different tastes in music and not only made a playlist that we loved, but one that our guests did too! People were on the dance floor the whole night, and we had several guests come up and comment on how great the DJ was. Thanks, Tim!!

Jess absolutely KILLED it as our DJ at the wedding! Toast & Jam was wonderful to work with and Jess could not have been easier and more accommodating! She made sure we were as stress free as could be, sending along samples and follow ups, working with us until the day before the wedding to find the perfect version of a song. The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were all flawless. The dance floor was packed from start to finish – pure dancing magic! Everyone had such a blast, no one wanted Jess to stop playing as the wedding started to wind down. Would recommend to anyone looking for the best DJ – start to finish Toast & Jam made our wedding fantastic!

DJ Alli was awesome - very easy to work with, highly responsive and professional. Her advice and musical expertise were much appreciated. She kept the night on track and the dance floor hot. The music flowed perfectly and we received multiple compliments on the music. Thank you Alli!

When we asked our wedding photographer for a DJ recommendation she had only one - Toast & Jam. We had a great experience with T&J, specifically our DJ Alli Klein. Alli was so easy to work in person and over email from the first meeting to the event. She provided great recommendations for the ceremony, kept us on track leading up to and the day of the wedding, and kept everyone on the dance floor all night.

Our medium sized wedding reception (~105 people) was beautifully MC'd and DJ'd by Alicia Walter. She was communicative and awesome from first meeting to last dance. Everything from the introductions, to cake cutting, to the first dances was executed spectacularly. The venue coordinator even commented at the end of the night how much our group danced compared to others she's seen. We had so much fun at our wedding reception and so did our guests. Toast & Jam nailed it. Thank you so so so much!

Emily did a fantastic job at our wedding with everything (DJ, MC, handling the rain)! We met with Emily in advance to go over things and for certain parts we had no clue what to play. She had great suggestions and it helped take some of the stress off of us. At the reception, she kept everyone happy and dancing the night away! Many of the guests told us they didn't leave the dance floor the entire night. We would highly recommend working with Emily and Toast & Jam!

Choosing Toast & Jam was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Katy Albert was our DJ and we cannot say enough about the incredible job she did. Katy exudes an air of likability and friendliness that made working with her all the better. Leading up to the event, she was well organized and exceptionally efficient in getting to know our musical tastes. Aside from a handful of “must play” songs, we really felt comfortable just letting Katy do her thing. And she crushed it! She made the night flow perfectly, knowing what to play and when to play it, and our dance floor was packed the entire night. Several guests approached us throughout the night just to say how awesome the DJ was. From the beginning, Katy proved to be nothing but the best. We wanted it to be a night no one would forget, and she definitely made that happen!

Our experience with Toast and Jam was amazing. From our first interview to the day of, everything was super professional and also grounded in excitement from all sides. Alli Klein was our DJ and we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. We had told her we wanted movie themes for the processional, and when we said we wanted to have my wife walk down the aisle to the theme of Jurassic Park, Alli was supportive and enthusiastic to oblige. We gave Alli a theme for our cocktail and dinner of British rock and she knocked it out of the park. We didnt give specific songs, but we gave bands like The Who, Bowie, The Kinks, and Queen. She even went a little more modern even going into The Darkness. Song wise, Alli did so great that our friend from England was overwhelmed with joy and excitement of what he might hear next. Going all the way into, "Can I have your playlist? What's your DJ's name? She is amazing!" We were given a list of songs to choose from that we absolutely would want to play and also songs that we absolutely wanted to stay away from. My advice, other than songs that may already be over played DON'T cage your DJ! We allowed Alli full reign and it was the amazing. Alli had such a great sense of the room that she knew how to get EVERYONE on the dance floor. Even my 98 year old grandmother was on the dance floor multiple times due to Alli playing a wide variety of music from all ages. Alli was genuinely excited and having fun, dancing and have a good time herself from behind the booth. Alli had a great sense of time and kept everything smooth, from music during ceremony to cocktail hour to bringing everyone back together for the dinner and clearly articulating, "shows over everyone, hope you had a great time!" We would get Alli from Toast and Jam everytime and can't rave about our experience enough!
