Wedding Reception at Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia
When I think of THE vendor that could made the greatest impact on our reception it would have to be Ateet Ahuja and Planet DJ Productions. From the moment I start working with him a year in advance in November 2012, he came ready and knew what he was talking about. I knew I could trust him as I’ve seen his other events in person, and they always blew me away. He has everything down from the lighting to the sound and to the MC duties.
I booked Ateet a year in advance since I know the guy gets booked up instantly and by booking early, we could work out any details that were special to us. After meeting with him, I got a quote within hours, and he even threw in so much stuff that I’m still trying to figure out how he did it. The guy knows what he’s talking about, and without him alone, I wouldn’t have the connection (and amazing discount) with the decorations people or with the venue itself. He’s done so many events at our venue that they knew him and his company by name, and that’s the type of person you want to run your event from start to finish.
Our program was effortless and it felt like the night ended so soon! Also, we mentioned to him that we had an idea of throwing an after party in the bridal suite and let’s just say, he delivered on that too, no surprise there! He threw in a speaker for free with a cable so guests can plug in their music and keep the party going! This is all almost out of order since I’m remembering things as I write this…here’s an example of the big surprise Ateet wanted to show my wife and I…when we walked into the ballroom he wanted to do something special, well…he bought a giant fog system and we walked into a beautiful hall, and it was amazingly lit. Everything was PERFECT! I know who I’d hire for any family party, it’s Ateet and Planet DJs! In fact, our guests loved our event so much that they’re BEGGING us to throw an anniversary party, or just a party in general…and for us, all the credit goes to the DJ!
