The Brand Studio Wedding

There are no words.  I wish I could give Schiemer Entertainment 100x the amount of stars possible on this website.

To me the music and DJ at a reception is what keeps the party alive. I wanted a wedding where guests would talk about it for hours, days, weeks, months, and years after. We haven’t gotten to months or years, but hours, days, and weeks have passed and the response I keep getting is that I had the best wedding my guests had ever been to. Although that is a compliment to me, I think it is more a compliment to my DJ. Eric Schiemer was able to put together a playlist of music that kept people on their feet all night.

After speaking on the phone with Eric, I knew he was my man. He possessed a knowledge about weddings that other DJ’s I had contacted didn’t have.  Once booked, he gave me access to a site that allowed me to input all my information, choose songs, create a do not play list, and organized all my songs and information to make the reception planning easy.

Like mentioned above, I have not a complaint in the world about Eric. He is the single person I credit for the amazing time my guests, my husband, and I had at my reception. He listened to what I wanted, created an amazing playlist, and flawlessly input guest requests into the reception.

I cannot thank Eric enough for helping us celebrate such a special night.

Eric made the night unforgettable. I have been to weddings with bad DJs and everyone just sits around and ultimately leaves early. I am not kidding when I say that there wasn’t enough room on the dance floor. We had everyone – both young and old from both sides of the family – out on the dance floor until the very last dance.

Eric was incredibly professional. He is a charismatic, outgoing guy who definitely knows his business. He gave us a lot of suggestions and tips and made sure that everything ran smoothly throughout the night. I had plenty of people who told me even weeks after the wedding that Eric was a GREAT DJ. He had the right type of music for everything – from the quaint cocktail hour, to our very happy entrance to the dance music that kept everyone up and moving all night.

One of the best things about Schiemer that we really took advantage of is doing everything online. You can sample all of his music and even can rate music in your profile to give him a better idea of what you like and don’t. He really read my mind. I can think of at least 2 songs that I wanted (and forgot to tell him!). He played them both before I could even talk to him. He made the night truly unforgettable.

Eric, thank you for making our wedding amazing. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone and wish we could have another one to work with him again!

DJ Eric Schiemer is the BEST!  He really listened to what we wanted instead of making us buy a package that didn’t suit our needs.  His experience and service rivals the higher-priced DJ’s in the Pittsburgh area and guess what… he’s better… so you’re getting a bargain!  He has any type of music you could possibly want: Top 40, 80’s, oldies, you name it.  Anything we requested, he found a way to make it happen.  Our whole theme was Old Hollywood so he gave us songs used in movies for our cocktail and dinner hours and movie soundtrack themes for our reception entrance songs.  Plus, my husband and I are big fans of Aerosmith and Metallica… not easy songs to dance to… but Eric whipped up a mashup of our two favorite bands that everyone could jam along to.  One of the things we liked best was the planning form on his website, which made setting up our entire day a piece of cake.  This was especially important since we live in Georgia and couldn’t simply pop by to see him any time changes needed to be made.  He’s very responsive via phone and e-mail, as well, which makes planning the event a breeze.

Without a doubt, if I had to recommend our favorite vendor from our wedding, it would be Schiemer Entertainment. From our very first meeting with DJ Eric, my husband and I were extremely impressed. He is very professional but so much fun to be around, and we were wow’d by his technical expertise (which in my opinion is vital for a DJ). Eric made the planning process extremely easy as well. Eric uses online planning tools that allow brides to create playlists or select genres of music they are interested in for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, which is really cool and makes planning a breeze. My husband and I had about a year and half engagement, and booked nearly all of our vendors before the year mark, most of which forgot our names by the time the wedding rolled around- but not Eric.

On the day of the wedding, Eric did an awesome job of putting us at ease and our guests RAVED about him! The dance floor was packed the entire night! Everyone from our great aunts to our wild college friends loved the variety of music, and was up celebrating with us.  All and all, we could not be more pleased or recommend Schiemer Entertainment Services more!! An easy 5 star rating!!

I’ve gotta say, I personally think a DJ makes or breaks a wedding. And I also have to say that we were recommended Eric by our photographer who works with A LOT of DJs. From the moment we met Eric we were sold. He is so genuine, honest, fun, knowledgeable, professional… the adjectives go on and on and on. Ok, let’s get the specs out of the way— he has great unobtrusive equipment, he has a GIANT library of music, and he approaches this very much as a science, putting all the pieces together to make a great party in your space. But these are not the things that make a truly first-class DJ. That is the ‘it’ factor. He’s so classy. He MCs like a pro—the party is all about the attendants having a great time. And he. puts. together. such. great. playlists. We picked the music, but he gave us lots of hot tips and then pieced it all together at just the right time. I had guests coming up to me the whole night saying how great our DJ was. The other cool thing about Eric is that he has all these fun extras like uplighting. I’m sure in some venues you may not need that, but in ours it really added to the ambiance of the space (Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh Big Red Room). The success of a wedding I think hinges so much on a great DJ, and man, Eric is THE BEST!!!!

My husband and I used Eric’s services for our June 2013 wedding, and we could not be happier that we did!

From the first moment we contacted him to get information, he was extremely helpful, prompt, and very friendly. When we finally spoke over the phone (we were planning from out of state), we just clicked with him. He is so easy-going, fun, and such a genuinely nice guy. Throughout the process, he made everything so easy for us, and he did everything in his power to make sure we were happy with the results.

Eric’s website is very well done, and the choosing of music is well organized- you get a login name and can listen to clips of the music while you decide. Eric even offers lighting, which was so reasonably priced, and he did a BEAUTIFUL job lighting our reception.

During the reception, Eric was wonderful. He was energetic, professional, and made the reception so elegant yet so much fun!! Every person that came to the wedding was on the dance floor, and we danced till the end!! The music he played was absolutely perfect, and exactly what we wanted. The combination of the ambiance from his lighting and the feel from the music made our reception the perfect night.

We cannot thank Eric from Schiemer Entertainment more for making our wedding so incredibly special; we will have wonderful memories of our reception for the rest of our lives, and we give so much of the credit for that to him.
