"Ryan was very professional, organized and fun! He brought his charm and great attitude to our wedding and our guests fed off of this! He kept our party going into the wee hours... He helped create memories that we will talk about for year to come!

We will be using him for all of our future parties... FOR SURE!! 


While this review is coming almost two years after our wedding you can rest assured its out of honesty and not obligation. Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes, the good news is that there are individuals out there to help you through some of the rough spots and Ryan is that guy. I had know Ryan long before I even got engaged as he was the brother of a good friend of mine. I used to listen to him in the clubs and was very well aware of the quality and professionalism that made him stand out.

My wife and I were very lucky when we found out that he was available for our wedding night and he was very helpful in guiding us through what is really a complicated process of selecting all the right songs.

Ryan provided us with a form to fill out that basically was the timeline of the whole reception. He gave us free will but also made sound and reasonable suggestions when needed. Our guests were on the older side and we adjusted the music selections as necessary and he was able to provide us with every song we requested.

Ryan showed up on time, got set up, basically guided us through our whole reception, kept people moving and dancing, regulating the flow and motion of the people. He slowed things down for dinner and after that... rocked the house.

Our reception was a catered backyard southwestern style BBQ and he was considerate of the neighbors which all enjoyed the music for the night but one. There is always that one neighbor!!! :-)

I would recommend Ryan for any kind of DJ'ing gig that you may be thinking of. He will keep your guests on their feet all night long!


"Amazing!! Ryan DJ'd our wedding and was awesome. All of our guests, young and old, were on the dance floor all night long. We received so many compliments after the wedding specifically saying how great he was. My only regret was not hiring VIP as our photographer too!!!"


"Overall our wedding was everything I dreamt it would be, thanks Ryan @ VIP Events and our vendor team.
Every detail and every second was amazing and ended up even more beautiful than I imagined! The music was exactly as I planned and in many cases even better. Our family and friends, old and young, had a blast. Our friends are insane and they had a blast on the dance floor, I heard “best wedding ever” a few times and it made me so proud. A few people noticed my specific song selections and appreciated it, I loved that! I thought about every song and it all came together so perfectly with Ryan's help.
The process of planning was smooth and collaborative, I was incredibly detailed and found Ryan to be great to work with, responsive to my many many bridal requests and questions. A perfect blend of helpful and flexible, allowing me to create the right tone for our event.
On the day of the event everything went smoothly and was expertly choreographed as the DJ and caterer worked perfectly together, allowing me to be stress free and enjoy my special day. We were on time but not rushed and the whole wedding party was managed seamlessly through the entire process.
I hope I get a chance to attend a wedding with Ryan and his team is DJing one day!"


"We worked with VIP events for DJ services for our wedding reception in Stamford, CT in April of 2013. Our wedding guests still haven't stopped talking about the epic dance party that resulted from our decision to hire VIP Events! The DJ was responsive to guests' song requests throughout the reception, which kept the party going and the guests totally entertained. We also had a special guest to announce the wedding party, and the DJ staff was very flexible in sharing the spotlight with him and helped us out by providing the specific entrance songs we requested. The best part of our experience with VIP Events was that we didn't have to think about them at all during the reception--they handled everything professionally and did a great job of keeping the party moving. An engaged couple even asked the DJ at the end of the night if they would travel to Cleveland, OH for their wedding! We had an excellent experience with VIP Events and recommend them very highly."


"VIP Events was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had very specific ideas of what we wanted and didn't want, and they were happy to work with us while still providing advice. All our guests raved about how great the DJ was, and when you look through our pictures from our reception, the dance floor was packed all night! We had an absolute blast at our own wedding and that was because the DJ and his team played great music throughout the entire day. I would highly recommend VIP Events to a friend."


"VIP Events is simply, in one word, amazing. They kept everyone on the dance floor. Ages ranged from 3 to 90 and the music selection made everyone want to come out and dance. I still have people compliment on who our DJ was and that they were amazing. I could not have asked for anything better."


"I used VIP Events for both DJ and Photography for my wedding this past June. I really can't say enough good things about Janie and Ryan. They are an awesome couple that are really talented and passionate about their services. Working with them was one of the best experiences of the entire wedding planning process. Ryan was our DJ and he really made things so simple by helping us pick out songs for those special parts throughout the night. All of our family and friends raved about how awesome the music was at our wedding and everyone including my husband and I were literally on the dance floor all night. Ryan really knows how to get the crowd going and we had him bring along another DJ so he could really MC. As for Janie, we worked with her through our engagement photos, my boudoir photoshoot and the wedding day itself. When there was a specific deadline to meet (pics for save the dates, thank you cards, etc) she was more than willing to help out. She is a true artist and captures the best moments. Janie takes a personal interest in each of her clients and is always there for you (even if you just need wedding planning advice that has nothing to do with photography). She even brought along two other photographers to my wedding which meant even more amazing photos. My husband and I knew from the first time we met Ryan and Janie at Starbucks that we had to have them for our wedding. I would recommend everyone to use them both and I can honestly say you will likely be disappointed if you don't go with them."

"VIP events llc made our wedding, we have been to many weddings and have never seen a crowd respond like ours did. The set up was state of the art and the talent is beyond any other wedding dj I have ever seen. The pictures taken by our photographer who is also apart of VIP events are outstandingly artistic and skillfully taken. I would re-hire VIP events llc in a heart beat, will never forget our wedding I'm sure the same goes for our guests. If your looking for a professional team, and you like being treated like a VIP, these are the people to hire!!!!"


"This guy & his group of DJs are a true talent ! They kept the party going all night & my guests are still contacting me, 6 months later to mention how much fun they had dancing at our wedding. DJ Ryan is so much fun and will cater to your specific music requests. If you're looking for someone reliable, knowledgeable & who plays all of your favorite music for your BIG DAY, you have found the right DJ. The music was seamless & just perfect for our event. 

Industry Insider Scoop: I am also in the wedding industry (Makeup Artist) and refer DJ Ryan to all of my CT brides!! 

We loved our wedding and will especially remember dancing the night away. Thank you !!!"

"Ryan DJed my sisters wedding in November of 2013. HE WAS FANTASTIC!! He had everyone dancing the whole night. He was very professional and very accommodating. The wedding was an American/Russian wedding and Ryan made sure to mix in some Russian songs to the mix. He was also the MC and made sure to check the name pronunciations on the Russian side to make sure he said everything correctly-- very attentive! All in all, we had such a wonderful time, and I would recommend Ryan to anyone who wants their wedding to be a fun and amazing party!"

"The dance floor was PACKED the entire night. The music was phenomenal, exactly what we asked for with just the right amount of mix. People kept coming up to us the whole night saying we had the best dj they'd ever heard at a wedding! Could not have been happier. We also loved the fact that everything was up to us. We picked the music genes, the order of events, decided not to do a garter or bouquet toss, but instead I gave my bouquet to the couple who had been married the longest. Ryan had great ideas and suggestions and was very supportive in anything we waved or did not want, which made us feel like we definitely made the right decision. I even had a "do not play" list that ryan stuck to so our elderly guests were not offended lol. You truly get what you pay for and he is the top of the line in quality and we would have spent twice as much if we knew how awesome he was going to be because it definitely would have been with it. He made our wedding!"


"Janie did a great job with our engagement photos and I can't wait to work with her again at our wedding reception. Janie has an eye for wonderful photos and I feel in love with every one she took! Photos last forever and we will enjoy looking at all of them for the rest of our lives! In addition to her wonderful photo ability, Janie is a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with!"

"VIP EVENTS LLC were definitely a great vendor for my wife and I. They were very courteous. When we had questions they were responsive. We had ideas and they added to them without over stepping boundries. They allowed us to have our special day be worry free. We provided them with a list of pictures and things we wanted done and they made sure we were taken care of. The DJ kept people on the dance floor and made the evening fun. I would recommend using them. Very friendly and they did a wonderful job."

"We used Janie for our engagement photos. She was very professional and helpful. We had no idea what photos we wanted to take, but Janie was able to guide us. Janie has a great eye for photographer and is great at picking unique locations. She is very passionate about photographer and it shows in her work. I would highly recommend her for all types of photos."

"Both Ryan and Janie are extremely friendly professionals. It was a breeze working with them. Our photos are amazing and Ryan had everyone up dancing all night long. Great company to hire!"

Erin B.

"VIP Events was absolutely fantastic and they helped capture all the best moments of our special day. The pictures were amazing and Janie and her assistant were so helpful and understanding on the day of our event. Janie met with us in advance to discuss all the majors details and she hit the ground running and didnt stop until the day was over. Janie kept in constant communication throughout the process and helped make everything go smoothly. We cant begin to describe just how great of a job she did and we would highly recommend her work to anyone in the future. We couldn't be happier."

Charles B.

"Professional and personal, every detail was captured and all done with a smile. Janie is so easy to work with and you will absolutely love her work.
Highly recommended."

"Janie was beyond perfect! We got all the memories we wanted of our day and then some. Even after our event if I had questions she responded quickly and professionally. I would get married all over again if she would be our photographer!!!"

Michelle S.
"So I made a really awesome dinner and poured a glass of wine to look through the wedding photos and enjoy dinner. My meal is still on my plate cold because I've been smiling from ear to ear all night! Thank you for making my next six months! These photos are unbelievable !!!!"

"How lucky was I to find a husband and a wife who do AMAZING jobs at weddings. From Ryan as DJ to Janie as photographer I am one lucky girl. Just received our wedding photos and they are AMAZING! We love them! Thank you thank you!"


Stephanie K.

"VIP EVENTS did and amazing job with my wedding pictures! Janie has an eye for taking great shots. They are professional, reliable, and very easy too work with! I am proud to say they captured my special day! I highly recommend VIP EVENTS!"

"Thank you both again for making our wedding so incredibly amazing!! Ryan our guests are STILL raving about you!

This is so crazy late but my husband and I just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary and it reminded me that I completely forgot to give a review. Ryan and Janie were AMAZING!! They were the first people we met with for our photography and DJ selections and we didn't end up meeting with any one else. We booked them right after our meeting!

As the photographer, not only was Janie incredibly talented but she was so nice and never put any pressure on me (even when I was 90 minutes late to the first look!). She easily adapted to the time restraint and still took beautiful photos. She captured all the moments we were hoping for and even a few we didn't know were happening! We loved discovering all the different parts of our wedding as we looked through the albums. She was beyond professional, flexible, and delivered the completed photos on time. 

Ryan was the absolute best DJ we have ever experienced... and we have been to quite a lot of weddings! He was so awesome to work with and let us add on things at the very last minute with out hesitation; like asking him to provide sound and microphones for the entire ceremony only 2 days before. He made us feel at ease that the evening was going to go off with out a hitch and it truly did! The reception was a blast! He had a fantastic playlist and the dance floor was packed all night long! Our guests kept telling us after that our dance floor was the most fun they had been on. 

Both Ryan and Janie were a privilege to work with! VIP Events, LLC is very reasonable when it comes to pricing and they really exceeded our expectations! We will recommend them to anyone we know! Thanks again!



Catherine & Matt
