Our Wedding Music

We worked long and hard to choose our wedding music. We worked with Amos Productions and they were amazing.

We had Rick Mustafa as our DJ for the night and we also used the company for some beautiful champagne uplights to set the mood at our venue. Rick was fantastic from the beginning, and from the moment we met him we knew we trusted him with the vibe of our special night and we were right.

As my husband requested I mention, “Rick is the type of guy you just want to sit down and have a beer with.”

He was very responsive to all of our communications leading up to the wedding and the meetings we had with him in person were extremely helpful. He saw our vision, but helped to direct us and our timeline in the smoothest direction possible and we couldn’t be more thankful. He kept the party going and on time, gave us heads ups when needed, and we felt like he had our back the entire night.

We can’t thank Rick and Amos Productions enough for helping us to make our wedding the best night of our lives.

Here’s a peek of some of the special songs we chose for our wedding’s special moments:

We had an amazing time and the music was perfect. We danced the night away with our friends and family and it went by so fast! We would do that night over and over again if we had the chance.
