What can we say, Jessi is the sh*t! Seriously, we were so particular with our music selection and playlist, and she totally understood our needs. From day one when we sat down and meet her at Toast & Jam we knew she was our gal! She helped our wedding move along flawlessly, from the ceremony to dinner to the dance floor. The only complaint that we got our whole wedding was that the dance floor was non-stop! Which we took as a sign of a great wedding! Could not thank her or Toast & Jam enough!

Our experience with Toast & Jam and our DJ Jessi was incredible. From the first meeting, to the countless emails, second meetings and finally the day-of our wedding we couldn't have asked for a better partner to make everything go as smoothly as it did. We really clicked with Jessi from the start, and she understood immediately that we had a lot of opinions on music and that it was one of the most important parts of our party. She took it all very seriously, heard our ideas and helped us fine-tune them so they worked perfectly on the day of. On top of that, Jessi really stepped in as our day-of coordinator to make sure we stayed on time and got to enjoy the party without any worries. We can't say enough good things about Toast and Jam and Jessi, you'd be lucky to have them as part of your special day!

Run, don't walk, to hire Jessi. She is a talented, badass DJ, but most importantly, she LISTENS. We were so excited to start the process of wedding planning and wanted to throw a party our friends and family deserved. The music was a huge part of how we wanted to reflect our relationship during the ceremony and reception. We had a lot special requests, song cuts, and a mix for our first dance that were really important for us and Jessi delivered on all of them. When we reflect on our wedding day, one of the things that always makes us smile is how packed the dance floor was all night. People were out there the second Jessi opened the dance floor and stayed until the last song, belting out "I Wanna Dance with Somebody". We will never forget that moment. Jessi, thanks for being such a stellar part of our wedding. All you can ask for is a DJ that listens and communicates and cares and you so clearly did all those things in spades.

Our wedding was months ago, and we are still getting told how much fun everyone had. That would not have been possible without Jessi. From all music/ceremony preparations to the actual event, Jessi did an amazing job. Working with her felt like a partnership. She listened to what we wanted (without judgment – Spice Girls was played), and guided us through the process of choosing everything from ceremony music to the last song of the night, providing suggestions when needed along the way. Jessi further personalized our wedding by keeping track of the Michigan football game, and announcing the win and playing the fight song. Jessi took initiative in coordinating with other vendors and the venue, and showed up to the venue hours before to make sure everything was set. We would recommend Jessi to anyone, and cannot thank her enough for the big part she played in making our wedding such a special and fun event.

We booked Toast & Jam after our first meeting with Jessi (~8 months before our wedding date). Jessi did a great job at the first meeting of getting an idea of what our wedding, music tastes, and personalities were like, as well as what we were envisioning for our reception. The list provided by Toast & Jam of likes and dislikes is very comprehensive and helped us get an idea for the cocktail hour and reception. Jessi was very flexible with our choices and everything was solidified via a second meeting about a month before the wedding. She also provided a microphone and music for our ceremony. She made sure to work with the other vendors, have a timeline, and prep those doing readings during or conducting the ceremony. She also assisted us by cueing us when it was past time for us to thank everyone and dance and by screening extra special requests from guests through us. She was a pleasure to work with and everyone had an amazing time!

Where do we even begin... From the get go- Emily was SUCH a fantastic match for us! Her personality is stellar, and after our first meeting, we knew we were in great hands. Emily helped us create the ultimate wedding playlist, and all her recommendations were on point! Us, along with our family and friends had THE very best time at our event- from our processional song choices to our first dance to our last song of the night- the dance floor was rocking!!! Thank you, Emily!

Shannon was an amazing DJ and really had the dance floor going all night. My husband is pretty particular about music and Shannon really took it in her stride to set expectations around her playing our "must plays" and then having the liberty to play in the genres we gave her. I noticed pretty much all of our special requests between the cocktail hour, dinner and the dance floor. She also helped us decide between a couple of songs for a few of our key moments based on her expertise. My uncle danced all night and had to be dragged away by my aunt when she was tired and he wasn't alone! Would highly recommend Shannon to anyone looking for a personalized and non-cliche wedding party.

Kate was AMAZING! We had zero worries once we got to our reception because we knew Kate had everything taken care of! From the moment the first song came on to the last song of the night, the dance floor was packed. Our wedding venue said that of all the weddings they've had, our wedding had the most number of guests on the dance floor and stayed dancing the entire evening. WE LOVE TOAST AND JAM! Thank you for making our big day so special and fun! Claire and Erik

Alice did an absolutely incredible job with the music at our wedding! She was so great to work with throughout the wedding planning process and made sure to include everything that we wanted. She kept the dance floor alive all night and we had a blast dancing at our wedding and hearing all of our favorite music. Our guests had great things to say about her as well! Thank you, Alice, for being a highlight of our incredible day!

Olivia was the perfect DJ and kept the party going 'till the very last song! She was so easy to work with and helped keep us on schedule with our wedding timeline. We highly recommend Olivia and Toast & Jam!
