Choosing to work with Kim Alexander, founder of No Macarena DJ & Custom Music Service, was one of the best decisions we made. I first reached out to Kim in December of 2013 for our October 2014 wedding — she was recommended by one of my coworkers, by one of the caterers we were considering, and by Adriana Robinson (site manager of our venue). She replied to my email on the same day with a copy of her standard contract and some additional site-specific info on our venue. I was sold on booking No Macarena, but my husband wanted to pursue hiring a friend. Four months later we were left high and dry. I frantically sent an email to Kim to see if she was still available. She was prompt in her response and four days later we sent her our $500 deposit. We loved how transparent Kim was with her fees, you won’t find any nickel-and-diming here.
Our wedding venue, the Colonial Dames, is a 2-story, early 1920’s house with several beautiful, private gardens. We had our ceremony outside in the garden, moved inside on the first level for the cocktail hour, and then upstairs for our reception. Kim was with us every step of the way from ceremony prelude to the last song of the night.
Kim listened to our varied tastes — we requested Pride & Prejudice (BBC & motion picture) music as well as Nirvana, Texas is the Reason, and Alice in Chains — and tailored her selections to our crowd (30% baby boomers, 60% Gen X/Y). Kim was phenomenal! She pulled back on the volume during our tapas style dinner so our guests could mix and mingle without having to shout at one another, then got the party started with some oldies (but goodies) when it was time to dance.
We highly recommend Kim and No Macarena.
