Our wedding reception was a hit, all because of Alan, and his ability to run the show and entertain guests.
The music was excellent and his emcee-ing kept our guests entertained and the event moving. He was an integral part in making our wedding the perfect night that it was!
We had a baseball-themed wedding, which took place at Safeco Field, and Alan was the perfect fit for this event. His passion for baseball, professionalism as a highly trained DJ, and flexibility with our complicated logistical requirements, really helped to improve the quality of our event, and he was a joy to work with.
Alan was extremely attentive and professional from the first consultation through the end of the wedding. He made sure not only to prepare the music we wanted, but also helped plan out the full flow of the reception with my partner and I.
His wealth of knowledge in his profession is unmatched by any DJ in the Seattle area. The importance of a DJ goes far beyond picking the right music for your day, it is also about setting a terrific flow between planned activities.
Alan got a great feel for our music style before the event and pulled off the DJ/Emcee role perfectly for us.
Alan helped tremendously with details we would not have been able to pull off (like the color-coordinated lighting.)
It was exactly what we wanted.
Looking back, my husband and I have very fond memories of our wedding day. Pretty much everything went just as planned. Without Alan, our wedding day would not have gone so smoothly. He took charge when needed but then blended in the background. Alan was very professional, kind and had a great sense of humor.
I can say with absolutely no doubt that our day would not have been as amazing without you. You were an invaluable part of what made our reception so much fun!
He was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding event and we were extremely happy with how the event turned out. If you wanted somebody who not only plays good music but also cares about how to make your event the best that it can be, pick Puget Sound DJ! It’s hard to go wrong with someone as dedicated and detail oriented as Alan is.
He met with us several times over the wedding planning process to help us with putting together a detailed timeline, finalizing the timeline, helped with all the little details that couples might not think about (even items outside of just music and MCing), and even provided vendor recommendations when we asked.
Alan is so knowledgeable and helpful! He asked us questions that we didn’t even think about. He also had great ideas and recommendations for our special day! He takes the time up front to meet with you and get to know who you are and your tastes about music.
He knows the basic elements of an American, Jewish, and Asian wedding. This is not an easy task. We really had no idea of how we wanted the night to flow and Alan came in and suggested different parts, the ordering of each, and really became the glue for everything to fit together.
I look back at our wedding day and between Alan working with the staff at our venue, my coordinator, to being the voice and delivery of our day – not one thing went sideways and he is the 1 vendor I have to thank for making it all happen!!
Alan played a HUGE role in helping us plan our timeline for the evening from ceremony to cocktail hour to cake cutting, dances, and toasts. His ideas for the flow of events were AMAZING. His intuition when it comes to reading the crowd is impeccable, and if a plan we had made in advance needed to be changed, he was able to come to us, tell us his thoughts, and make the change seamlessly.
Everything flowed seamlessly and that is because of Alan’s dedication to providing an excellent service. When your wedding day comes, you want to be able to just sit back and take in the moment, and that is what choosing Alan Chitlik allowed us to do. He worked behind the scenes with everybody to make sure everything was moving at the right pace and read the crowd flawlessly.
Alan ran our entire wedding without a hitch to make sure that we had the most amazing wedding day possible. As everyone else has said Alan is a great DJ, he is able to fill every moment with the perfect mix of music for a fun and lively wedding day.
He is also a fantastic master of ceremonies, coordinating with all of our other vendors and becoming familiar with our story in order to create a reception that was unique to us.
He was a major part in our day being so fun and lively (the dance floor was never empty).
All your hard work and thoughtfulness helped to make our day special and smooth.
Alan is not just a DJ. I would say he plays the most important role in your day. He was there every step of the way and truly took his time getting to know us. After our wedding people were still talking about him.
We had the best day and we think Alan played a crucial role in that. He played great music that kept our guests dancing all night and he really kept the evening moving along so that things never felt stale.
Alan was a KEY piece in our wedding day. The day was absolutely perfect and we had at least 20 people tell us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Absolutely perfect!
Everyone said that our wedding was the best they had ever been to. Alan was a big part of that for us. Never a down moment or guests wondering what was coming next. He was exceptional.
Alan was a life saver! He kept the day going! He’s not just a DJ he’s also a “Day Of” wedding planner! He kept us on cue at the wedding and the timeline of the reception moving along, even though the buffet servers were slow to get the food out.
Hiring Alan as our dj was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He was personable, honest, and really knows how to liven up a party.

The Fake Out Recessional
One fun way to enhance your ceremony is to fake out your guests at the recessional. I can start with a very traditional version of “The Wedding March” and then, after a few seconds, mix in to something contemporary and upbeat. My favorite way to do this is with a song...
