When we began the search for a Wedding Dj for my Daughters wedding we went to a couple of wedding shows, talked with several Dj companies and found a pattern that was not a good fit for us. These companies had several DJ's working for them and they could not guaranty which Dj would show up for your event. Then, through friends/word of mouth we were directed to Rick (New Beginnings Djs). Because of his fun yet calming demeanor we made our decision to go with New Beginnings almost immediately upon meeting Rick. He really listened to our wants and needs and then assured us that he would do everything in his power to make them happen. I am a little bit (ok, a lot ) of a control freak, but as we got closer to the wedding date my daughter and I discussed the possibility of a day of planner. I was a little hesitant to even think about handing over the reigns of my daughters special day to someone else, however when we learned that New Beginnings also offers DOP we decided it was worth looking into. Bottom line, Rick is truly a do it all guy! As our DOP he was there to set up and guide the wedding party through dress rehearsal, calm nerves and prepare us for a great day. On the day of the wedding Rick showed up at the venue considerably early took my lead in decorating and did everything asked of him. As the time approached for the MOB to leave to get ready for the ceremony and I was still worried about a few things that weren't completed, Rick assured me it would be all beautiful, with candles lit and all vendors in place when I returned. I can honestly say that is the last time that day I worried about anything. The ceremony & reception were wonderful, Rick kept everything flowing seamlessly and once the dance floor started rocking the party was on. A few days later Rick even emailed us a bunch of candid photos he had taken through out the day. I just can't say enough good things about Rick and New Beginnings! -Tracy (MOB) October 2017

Rick was just excellent all the way around. He helped with the planning and even went to my daughter's office to get her inputs. He was an outstanding DJ. We thoroughly enjoyed it when he led us in some very fun dances! Just awesome! I would definitely recommend Rick. Five stars all the way around!!!!! - Susan August 2014 Mother of the Bride

The evening ran very smoothly and Rick took care of everything! He was very organized and professional. I loved how he interacted with the guests and made the evening fun and entertaining. The music was great and he catered to all of our requests. We had many comments after the wedding from friends and family about how much they enjoyed the DJ and thought he did an outstanding job! - Julie August 2014

I really enjoyed the overall environment that Dj Tim set up for our event, he made things very fun, interactive and made everyone feel comfortable. He led our reception and we did not have to worry about a thing. I booked New Beginnings Djs without meeting the Dj first so I was a little nervous on what to expect (we live out of state). The moment I met Dj Tim in person, I was very excited because I could tell by his personality he would be awesome, outgoing and a great fit for our wedding. I was not let down and everyone enjoyed themselves. I already have wedding guests asking for his contact information. Great Dj, great service!! - Kaela July 2014

Literally everything was perfect. We could not have asked for a better DJ and know for a fact that our wedding would have been nowhere near as successful and fun had we gone with another DJ. Thank you. - Curtis July 2014

Rick, you were extremely professional, organized, fun & did a great job keeping the guests entertained. Your knowledge & experience made the wedding/reception one of the best we've had at our venue. It was a joy to work with you! - Sonya July 2014 Quail Run Ranch

Our experience was pretty seamless, which was fantastic being that the few of us family members planning this all lived in different cities, making communication and organization a bit more difficult. Working with Rick was great from the start. Very pleasant and willing to help however needed. He checked in as needed before the event, which was helpful not having to be the person confirming myself. I've hired a couple different dj's over time and I often have to follow up with them and even have been unsure of arrival, but not this time. Communication was great, we even had a 50's theme that was dress-up optional, and he came dressed up. We had a quiet, older crowd, so not as much dancing in this group. But I believe Rick got the crowd going much more than others may have been able to. I really thought he was best with being in tune to what was needed. Sometimes just the background music was perfect, other times need some peeping up, he was right on top of it. Things were a bit frantic at the time of set up because we had very limited time to decorate, etc. and some of us had just arrived in town. Rick could feel the energy and eased our minds with his professionalism and taking charge of what needed to be handled. Also had a little bit of an issue with payment, which he was more than understanding about considering the circumstances. I know this is a long review, but it's totally worth describing the details. Thank you New Beginnings DJ's-Rick especially-and we'll refer to anyone who is in need of these services! - Bridgit April 2014 Birthday Party

We have married off 4 of our 5 kids. With each wedding, we learned how important it is to have a great DJ. Even though this was a birthday party for Dad, we all agree that we have finally found the perfect DJ! We received many compliments from our guests on the great music, interaction and wonderful sound quality of the DJ we hired- Rick. Our parish hall doesn't have the best acoustics and many DJ's have struggled to be heard; Rick's equipment was top notch and he placed all of the speakers perfectly. We had a great time and would definitely  use the services of New Beginnings again! In fact, I want to throw a party just so we can hire them again! - Janice April 2014

Rick was an amazing DJ, everyone danced the whole night and I was told by many many people that this was the most fun wedding they had ever been to! I know it had a lot to do with the music! - Katherine August 2013

DJ Rick was wonderful. We were planning our event from across the state & were only able to meet with him one time. This was hard for me, but with Rick's efforts, turned out to be no problem at all. He continually checked in with me via email about the Event planner & our preferences to make sure he & we had covered everything we wanted. Truly helpful for me trying to finalize everything & every detail. So many of our guests came up to us & mentioned how fun our wedding reception was & how they could tell how much thought & planning went in to it. New Beginnings was part of that, our guests loved the trivia to dismiss tables, our families & guests also loved the in-law cake cutting--I would have never thought of this without Rick & New Beginnings DJs. We, of course, had last minute changes & requests that did not even phase Rick & he pulled them off as if they had been planned the whole time. I had some very special & meaningful requests for certain songs, dances & memories & Rick made them come true at the wedding. It was very important to me to have all that included & he did so very well. We will never forget our special day, for many reasons, & New Beginnings is one of them. Definitely a strong recommendation from this couple! Enjoy!!! Ashley - July 2013

There are no words to describe the feeling of relief and excitement a bride & groom have when they can entirely trust their DJ.  My husband & I have been to many (MANY!) weddings together, and we have witnessed great DJs and mediocre DJs - but not until you're put in the position to elect a DJ for our own event do you realize that there is not a good way to decipher a great or mediocre DJ; how do you choose? You have to trust the reviews, trust the company and work to build a relationship with your hired DJ. We interviewed many DJs, and from the beginning Tim seemed to fit - because he's professional and efficient, and he has a passion for music and what he does, as well a strong grasp of the type of event you're looking to put on. When we first met Tim live, he was polite, took notes, he worked to understand our wedding, and what we wanted. Additionally, talking to Tim was like talking to an old friend, he was so delightfully easy to talk with and so nice, it was not a problem at all to get to know him. We live in Seattle and only had one chance to meet with him in person one time before the wedding - but that did not hinder our event planning one bit. Tim & Rick helped plan the reception across the board, from introductions to the final song, giving their professional opinions and suggestions as they saw fit (Dear Brides - this was SO helpful! Reception planning advice is priceless!) Josh even made a comment before the wedding, "Tim's got us!" Again, trusting your DJ on your wedding day is more important than I can express - and we trusted Tim. When the big day came around - Josh & I saw Tim, music playing in the cocktail hour, it was perfect. He (literally) anticipated our every need, and had eyes on Josh & I the entire night - he did not miss a beat. He emceed our wedding event - he was just as kind to our guests as he was to us, he was all smiles and really, honestly seemed to be enjoying himself, which makes the crowd enjoy themselves more! His emceeing was on point - he made all announcements we had asked for, announcement that he did on his own and he has the energy to make the party fun! From a very honest place in my heart as a new wife, and very recent bride -  our day was perfect, and that is largely in part to Tim and his efforts. From gathering our wild herd of wedding party for introductions, to playing a special song that my mother had requested, to making calls on changing the music if no one was dancing - Tim was 100%. I cannot recommend him enough!!! Josh & Rosalyn - July 2013

I enjoyed how helpful Rick was in making sure that everything flowed the way it was supposed to. I have received nothing but compliments on how great of a job you did. You kept the party going! Thanks again! -Aleia July 2013

Everything was great!!! Dj Tim was wonderful to work with. From the beginning he was there helping us plan every little detail of our wedding from picking the right music to the what happens when stuff. He was right on time making the proper announcements and playing the right songs at the right time. Thanks for giving us the wedding reception we wanted. Sarah - May 2013

I attended another wedding done by New Beginnings DJ's. They were amazing, so I booked them for mine. They were amazing at my event. Rick read the crowd, and got to know Devan and I before hand. He was not just in charge of the music, but MC-ed the event. It was fun and spunky just like we wanted. They really get to know you and build around your nature to give you a perfect day!-Maili-10-2012

Rick was great! Very nice and helpful while planning the event and super attentive to details and our happiness during our reception. During the reception I had people commenting on how much fun they were having and how much they were enjoying the music, now we haven't even been married a week and I already have someone asking who the DJ was to use for their wedding! My favorite part was that Rick had us play a new game that involved not only the entire bridal party, but also all of our 450+ guests! Between the music, game and special toasts, Rick really helped us make the reception personal to my new husband and I. I only wish the night never had to end!-Sara 07-2012

I enjoyed that you were there on time and wasn't rushing to set stuff up, I like that Rick helped the wedding party get down the isle while holding my dress :), music was awesome and played at the appropriate times...great dinner music and great dance music! Loved how the tables were dismissed for the buffet. The game was super fun and entertaining for all guests while eating dinner. Took requests and was really awesome at directing traffic, making announcements and just keeping the party going! Super professional and I LOVED that he referred to us as Mr & Mrs Nagel after we were married!!-Jill 09-2012

As a guest and relative at the San**no/S***by wedding party I was so impressed how the D.J. interacted with Bride, Groom, Wedding party as well as guests. I really felt he went above and beyond as he interacted making everyone feel welcome. He actually felt like he was part of the family. This is by far the best D.J. I've seen at any weddings in my past. Superb job! I was amazed how many different things he had going for the wedding and music to galore. He was always on his toes ready to go. ROCK ON!!!!! Patty I. Tacoma WA 08-2012

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Rick! We were married on Saturday November 5th, 2011 and Rick not only made sure the reception ran smoothly, he also made sure that I (the bride) ate dinner! He also made sure the wedding party got drinks for the bride and groom! Talk about going the extra mile. Rick was part DJ part wedding planner! Flexibility... I rate New Beginnings at a 10! We did Rock Band at our wedding and Rick was great at working with us and organizing everything to run just perfect. There are not enough words, at all to describe the service we received. My only regret, I didn't make sure that Rick ate.... I hope he did.-Matt & Heather 2011-

New Beginnings DJ was fantastic. Rick helped us plan the entire reception and ensured that everything ran smoothly. He had some amazing ideas for having our families involved in special ways. He adapted the music on the fly as necessary and even led a few dances (eg, electric slide, etc.). There is no way we could list all of the wonderful things Rick and the team did, nor can we adequately articulate just how incredibly happy we are with the way he ran the reception. THANK YOU! -Christopher & Sandra 2011-

Everyone had a great time and I had many people compliment on the music/dj. Several people told me they hadn't danced that much in years. They also told me they loved the Newlywed game. I can't say enough good things about your service. Thank you so much!-Matthew & Beth 2011-

I didn't have to worry about a thing! We booked this DJ on very short notice after my original DJ backed out. My family and I made lots of last-minute song changes at the reception and the DJ Allen & Tim never complained or questioned us. Most importantly, I learned that my guests didn't really like the same music I put on my priority list. No one was dancing! The DJs were able to gauge the crowd and pick appropriate songs. Furthermore, I didn't have to plan what would be done when. The DJ and his assistant were both so professional and did all of the event coordination for us. I wouldn't change a thing about the reception! -Guillermo & Ashley 2011-

We are so happy we chose New Beginnings DJ's as our wedding DJ! You came on time and dressed professionally, you played all the songs I requested, and you stuck to the timeline that I had given you. Thank you for a great night, and for also giving us a copy of all the music that was played during special moments. Thank you! -Gabriel & Sarah 2011-

We couldn't of asked for a better DJ for our wedding! Our guests are still raving about how well they enjoyed the music and the "how well do you know your partner" game. Rick made our wedding more enjoyable and more entertaining, beyond what I could have ever hoped for. Thank you so much! -Kory & Whitney 2011-

Our wedding turned out Perfect! Rick was awesome and really helped to make the wedding that much more memorable. Could not have been more satisfied with New Beginnings DJ:) 
Rick thanks so much you guys are the best! -Joshua & Kelsey 2011-

Everything was perfect, Dj Alan and Tim were wonderful!! -Jimmy & Michelle 2011-

Rick was a GREAT DJ we could not have asked for better. He was professional, friendly, and kept our wedding running smoothly. I would recommend New Beginnings to anyone looking for an awesome DJ. -Kraig & Alicia 2011-

I was very pleased with the music choice. All my family and friends had a great time and couldn't have asked for a better night. Thank you so much for being so involved and making our night special. -James & Cristal 2011-

Rick,I just want to say a huge THANK YOU for making our Wedding reception so unforgettable!! Everyone keeps commenting on the game and how great that was. You truly went above and beyond to make that night the best it could be. I'm so lucky to have come across New Beginnings on the internet because of the awesome job you did!! I will be recommending you for sure!! -Zach & KeriAnne 2011-

DJ Allen did an awesome job! He kept the reception going and fun and the best part was my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing as he took care of when to do what and so forth. The music we danced to was great as well. I LOVED the shoe game as did our guests and we had many compliments on how great of a job he did by our guests afterwards. 
Thank you Allen for making our wedding and reception that much more memorable and fun! We will be having New Beginnings do our annual Luau!!! -Tim & De 2010-

Rick, Thank you so much to you and DJ Allen for the phenomenal DJ service at our wedding. You both made our wedding day better than we could have ever expected!

You both kept everyone involved in the wedding activities including dancing the night away which is what we had always dreamed for our wedding-reception. We cannot thank you enough!! -Matt & Cacy 2009-
