- Wedding: August 2009 - Ceremony at the Lanikuhonua Phase II private estate, reception at a historic hotel in Waikiki
So, I’m sorta lazy, and VERY LATE to reply to this thread. I wrote a review for Tony on Wedding Wire, so I copied and pasted it below. He’s the sweetest guy ever.
First off, I’d like to offer a bit of context to my review. My husband recently turned 30, and I’m in my late 20s. Music was near the top of our priority list – second to photography. We love hip hop, and new wave. While we have nothing against the YMCA, electric slide, etc., we weren’t looking for those sort of tunes for our wedding. Tony So was recommended by another DJ we had contacted, but was unavailable on our wedding date. We were sold on Tony after our first conversation. Coincidentally, the DJ who recommended him became available (before signing a contract with Tony), but we felt our personalities clicked more with Tony, and moved forward with securing his services.
Tony provided the sound equipment for our ceremony and reception, in addition to a projector and screen for our slideshow at the reception. For those holding their wedding in Waikiki, you know how expensive projector rentals are! Regarding the ceremony audio, everything went off without a hitch. With 120 guests at our outdoor ceremony, he provided the necessary equipment to project the sound from our instrumentalists, and of course… us. A lot of my requests were last minute via email (e.g., boom mic), and he always responded within hours (sometimes minutes). He always assured me there was nothing to worry about, and that he would handle it. It was handled! My day of coordinator, nor I, nor my husband, had to worry about a thing when it came to Tony’s services.
I wish I could upload pictures to this review, because the dance floor was never empty at our reception. What’s amazing is that when songs weren’t popular with the crowd (ones I provided), he would fade them out, and move on to the next one without anyone noticing. He was, by far, my favorite vendor and such a pleasure to work with. He’s extremely personable, and his professionalism is top-notch. Thanks to Tony, everyone had a blast!
P.S. even our 70+ year old relatives were getting down on the dance floor – no joke!~
