Time and time again, picking the entertainment is left to the end of your staggering “Wedding To Do List”—yet it shouldn’t be! Music not only sets the appropriate tone, but a talented Master or Mistress of Ceremonies will nimbly manage your guests from one event to the next. Can I be honest? The best entertainers are frequently busy well ahead of time. So shake your groove thang (yeah, yeah yeah!), or you may be stuck doing the Cupid Shuffle on the dancefloor with Uncle Jesse!
Luckily, I happen to personally know a super-talented guy in Madawaska, Maine. Adam not only flawlessly executes DJing and emceeing weddings, but he offers a unique talent not many others in his line of work cannot… he has a beautiful voice. Go ahead. Ask him. Or stalk his YouTube channel… you know you want to.
I have worked as a vendor with him at a number of weddings he has provided entertainment for and I feel relieved that my night will be fun, exciting, and entertaining. I get excited when a client tells me they’ve hired him! Not only does he provide exactly what the couple has asked, but he keeps the other vendors (photographers, videographers, caterers, and bakers) informed of the timeline. He is a very professional guy and I personally recommend him to each, and every one of my Maine-based clients.
Without further ado…
