so I’m facing a bit of a wedding planning crisis right now. My fiance Scott, and myself are super picky about music. We want to make sure that we find the absolute best DJ possible (within our modest price range). I really want to go with dj Nate Oinonen from the white label wedding djs. He’s gotten great reviews for being a hip DJ and he’s the only one I really love in his price range…
Scott, on the other hand, is warm to the idea, but has been giving me excuses about why we should hire someone else. We’ve been discussing this the whole week, and Scott was a little concerned when one day we went to DJ Nate’s profile (for djnato.net) and all of a sudden it was no longer a one man dj operation based in boston, but was now a 9 DJ company covering boston, new york, and philadelphia. Personally I wasn’t concerned—I don’t think its fair to fault someone for ambition. Anyways, I convinced Scott it wasn’t something to worry about. Scott agreed to go ahead and book Nate, but said he wanted to sleep on it for another couple of days. In the meantime, he did some more research, and found out that the white label wedding dj’s website had a badge for a “knot.com best of 2011” award—-which seemed odd, because he had just gone through that list and followed all the links a few days earlier, and didn’t remember them being on the list. Scott looked further at the list of winners and could not find any mention of either white label djs or djnato.net. He then emailed the knot, and they responded back that the white label djs were in their directory but were not a “best of” pick and were not supposed to have that badge on the site. anyways, I figured it was a mixup, but that “best of” logo is still on the site even though the knot told me they were requesting that he take it down.
I would like to think it was an honest mistake, and I still want to go forward with Nate, and get this decision over with finally, but Scott is putting up a struggle. I’m really starting to freak out. Any feedback would be so helpful. Thank you sooooo much!

update: its been a rough last couple days and myself and Scott have had a very hard time agreeing on our DJ. We’re really looking forward to finalizing our decision asap. at this point we are leaning toward aaron denny (aarondenny.com) or greg from c-zone. any thoughts/advice???

that is so weird! i literally just closed a window from sending dj nato my first email regarding a DJ! i had read good reviews of just him before and was on weddingwire and got confused by the white label group too. i figured he was doing stuff on his own and also as part of the larger group.
what ended up changing your mind? was it the white label posted badge? he may not have anything to do with the website of the larger group. had you seen him before? i was hoping he would be ‘the one’ for us!

Hey guys, Nate is actually expanding his business and bringing in other talent. White Label is all him and some associate DJs. Just thought I would help clear up some of the confusion.

@MrsE.ToBe : well i was willing to accept that they might have made an honest mistake. but my fiance tends to be fairly skeptical, and I wasn’t able to convince him of that. Unfortunately we have been way too indecisive and haven’t finalized our decision yet!

Hi Kerry and Mrs.E,
It’s Nate from DJnato.net and White Label DJs. I’m sorry for the confusion I’ve caused by the change in my company’s name (DJnato.net to WhiteLabelWeddingDJs.com). For the last few years I’ve been booking myself, through my website djnato.net, but very recently I expanded my business and started working with other like-minded DJs here in Boston as well as New York and Philadelphia. Since it was no longer just myself I was booking, I thought it was best to change my company name. Once the company launched, my profiles on sites like this changed as well.
I also want to say sorry the misinformation that was on my new website. Around the time my new website launched, I asked the Knot for a badge. They sent me the “Best of 2011” badge. I wrote back to thank them and mentioned that I was unaware that I was a recipient of the award. The badge was posted on my site and later the Knot emailed me to let me know they made a mistake by giving me the wrong badge. They gave me a new badge and I emailed it to my web designer. A few days later the new badge replaced the incorrect one.
I hope this clears up any concerns you had. I’m really sorry for the confusion and stress I caused you. I hope that you both have great weddings!

@DJ Nato: We are all human. We have hired another DJ at this point, but thank you for taking the time to apologize for what I figure was an honest mistake. I wish you the best of luck with your business endeavors.
