    Jared and Yeonseo's Wedding Day

    DJ Haymaker helped to make our wedding day one that we will cherish and remember forever.
    Jeff takes the time to learn about the bride and groom as well as their family and friends, making the experience much more personal and relatable for everyone involved. This really shone through during the activities and games that he plans for the reception.
    His music program is a huge bonus and it really helped to plan the little details for our wedding. This includes the pre-ceremony music, ceremony, and reception music. He is a world-class DJ and anybody in the market for one will not be disappointed by choosing him for their event.
    We truly feel that DJ Haymaker cared about our special day and that he would go the extra mile to make sure everyone was happy.
    Thank you so much Jeff!

    Jeff, the MC/DJ you need for your wedding.

    You can have the best food, the best venue, the best family and friends, but without an amazing MC/DJ your special day will not be complete. And this person to us was Jeff (DJ Haymaker).

    Let's start with the MC part; Jeff is personable and will make sure to get to know your guest. He is a fun guy to talk to and brought us some fun game for our guests to enjoy and have fun. His love story was one of many highlights of the day. You know you chose the right guy when your friends tell you how amazing he was 2 weeks later.

    Now the dj part; DJ Haymaker knows how to read the crowd. Not only did he played all the song that we and our guests requested, he also made sure to play what made people dance. He had a 10 minutes killer mix/mashup that got a lot of people dancing. He got us dancing all night long.

    It has been 2 weeks since our special day and one person that made it so special was definitely Jeff. He is more than just a DJ/MC, he was truly a great help to make our wedding day special, and he made sure that our family and friends had a blast.

    Thank you so much Jeff, we truly cannot thank you enough for your help.

    Best Wedding Ever!

    Jeff Hay was indescribably good. He made our wedding so much fun and people were always on the dance floor despite it being very hot inside the venue. He played lots of games and interacted with all our guests and can read a room like no other! On our wedding day and in the month or so after the fact people still come up to us to tell us that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to and we owe that entirely to Jeff. It truly is the wedding that everyone else's wedding is compared to with most guests speaking very highly of the DJ and the experience he gave.
    Thank you, Jeff, for making our wedding one to remember!

    We didn't want our night to end!

    We didn't want the night to end! Jeff promised that our guests, and we, would leave feeling like this was the best celebration and he delivered! Jeff knew how to read the room, and bring the whole party together. Thanks for making our day extra memorable, Jeff!!

    Best DJ/MC in the Business!!

    What more could I say about having Jeff Hay (DJ Haymaker) as our wedding DJ and MC, other than incredible, professional, and absolutely hilarious! We worked with Jeff on organizing our wedding from before covid, and through many times of rescheduling and moving things around, he was always accessible and more than willing to work with us to not only achieve, but excel and push our wedding plans to the next level! Every phone call and interaction during the planning process gave us reassurance during a very stressful time to be planning a wedding.
    Jeff has so much experience and so many fantastic ideas, having him as a key part of your wedding team is an absolute must! We never had any doubt in our mind about our day(or days thanks to Covid!). I truly wouldn't know where to start trying to organize the ceremony music, audio, and all of the reception. Having that completely off of our mind was an amazing feeling, and really let us focus on other areas of our day. I have been to many weddings, where the music or audio has just been disorganized or had many problems, and that really puts a damper on the mood, nobody wants that! Between all of the ice-breakers, hilarious banter, and great sense of the room, Jeff just truly knows how to put together a party that nobody will ever forget! Not only could we not stop saying how great he was, plenty of our guests were absolutely raving about how fun he was! Don't pass on DJ Haymaker!

    The best of the best

    We managed to score DJ Jeff Haymaker for our wedding this summer when our booked DJ was unavailable following our date changes. I am still speechless regarding what an incredible job he did both as our MC and DJ, but I will do my best to put it into words. We received incredible feedback from all our guests both on the night of, and months later. We shared with him our goal of “the most fun/best wedding ever” – and he managed to make that happen.

    To start, he may be a professional DJ and MC, however, he should add wedding planner to his title as he was extremely helpful in this regard. He basically did everything but hold our hand along the way. He provided so many tips and tricks for us to keep in mind and checked in with us regularly on how things were going. Due to the pandemic we had to be a bit creative regarding dancing/a dance floor, however he was very helpful and accommodating and even advocated for us as best he could with unique ideas.

    He incorporated games throughout the night, resulting in there never being a ‘slow’ or dull moment. From start to finish, we had so much fun. His ability to read our guests, and bridal party and make jokes/introductions on the fly was something we will never forget. By the end of the night, most people’s comments were how much fun they had, and how their mouth hurt from laughing.

    He managed to take both my spouse and my music recommendations and create the most incredible, fun, and smooth playlist that resulted in a packed dance floor. Jeff took our ideas and made them a reality; he made a huge impact on our day. I would recommend Jeff time and time again; you will not be disappointed. We both truly feel as though we left our wedding with a new friend, he is such an amazing human being, and great at what he does!!!!

    How to describe having DJ Haymaker as your DJ and MC? Three words - best wedding ever!

    Jeff literally did everything. We felt like we could completely relax on our special day because we have full confidence that Jeff would keep everything running smoothly. From timing, to organizing, to jokes and to games, and of course incredible music! Jeff gets the party started and doesn’t let it stop. We couldn’t imagine what our wedding would have been like without him.

    DJ&MC Wedding services

    We are so glad we hired Jeff to be our DJ and MC for our wedding. After meeting with Jeff we instantly felt at ease and knew that we were in good hands. He does so much more than just play music. He helps with the coordination of the ceremony and rehearsal, comes up with fun games during the reception to get the guests interacting, and knows not only how to get the party going out on the dance floor but how to maintain it all night long. Jeff has so much experience with weddings and was able to advise as to what works and what doesn't. He is so good at creating a nice flow between the events of the evening and avoiding awkward lulls.

    But most importantly, we were able to relax and enjoy our big day while Jeff ran the show. What mattered most to us was for our guests to have an amazing time and when we looked around the room all we saw was smiling faces! Everyone was having the time of their lives and a lot of that was due to Jeff!!

    Exceeded expectations

    Without a doubt I would book Jeff again. We were a bit hesitant when booking the package if we needed everything he offered but he was able to exceed our expectations. He was very thorough and was able to run us through everything the day before our wedding. I had my brother MC but ultimately his success was led through Jeff. He had amazing games that we played to keep the crowd engaged and laughing all night. The next day he was one of the most talked about characters at the wedding. He meshed very well with our friends and family. I had multiple people ask me for his contact information the following day for their weddings. Highly recommend and thanks again Jeff!!!!!

    Best DJ/MC in the Okanagan

    Best MC & DJ in the Okanagan hands down!
    The first time we met Jeff was at my brother and sister in laws wedding. After seeing what he could do we thought we had to have him at our wedding.

    Any questions we had he was there in a heartbeat to answer. The day before our wedding he came to our venue to run through the whole day and made sure we were on the same page. Thanks to Jeff our day couldn’t have gone any better.

    Jeff is such a personable guy and he shows that he truly cares about how your big day is going to turn out. He really takes the time to get to know the couple he’s working with and also asks questions about the guests so he can connect with them. Jeff has a special way to engage all the guests and knows how to get everyone on the dance floor!

    After our wedding we had so many people tell us it was one of the “best weddings” they have ever been to and that Jeff “absolutely killed it!” We also got asked if he was a family friend of ours.

    We both had such an amazing time and we can’t thank him enough! We have nothing but great things to say about Jeff. It was definitely a day we will never forget! We would recommend him to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat.
