Chicago Athletic AssociationKaty did an absolutely phenomenal job at our wedding. The cocktail hour music was perfect, she kept things running smoothly during the intros, speeches, and first dances, and once the real dancing started it was favorite song after favorite song! She really took our preferences into account and made sure we had the best possible experience for our special night.

We had Alli as our DJ and she was just the best! She was patient with all of our many questions and concerns and was always so quick to respond to our emails. At our wedding, Alli played all the songs we requested and read the dance floor perfectly. We were so worried no one would dance-but our the dance floor was packed all night! It was so great working with Alli and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a DJ.

Hiring a DJ was the last and most important thing we did for our wedding. We take our music and dancing very seriously. Every other vendor from the florists to the caterers we asked had Toast and Jam at the top of their list, and we found out why. Not only was DJ Alli a pleasure to work with and a sweetheart, she was also a professional and picked up on our tastes instantly using our suggestions and complemented them with her far superior knowledge of music. She MADE our wedding and it was perfect. Thanks Alli!

Choosing Toast and Jam for our wedding was one of the easiest and best choices we made! Our DJ Emily was an absolute rockstar and made us feel like we were in good hands from our first meeting. She really listened and understood our music taste and that was reflected in the jams she picked throughout the night. She kept the party going on the dance floor all night! We could not recommend Toast and Jam more!

DJ Alli was absolutely perfect for our wedding! She was incredibly helpful leading up to our wedding, especially considering we were planning our wedding from out of state. She really understood our music needs and did a great job at making everything happen. She was very helpful in making sure everything was figured out and was so easy to get a hold of when we had questions. Our wedding was a blast and Alli knew exactly how to read to crowd and play what would get the most people out on the dance floor. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing DJ!

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.
