MEET OUR VIDEOGRAPHERS
We hired Mark MacTaggart to DJ our wedding ceremony and reception and he was absolutely fantastic! He was very organized and thorough during the planning process and worked with our schedules to be able to meet face to face instead of over the phone. On the day of our wedding, he kept things moving smoothly, played the perfect timeless music during dinner, and then ramped it up and had the dance floor packed during the entire reception! Mark respected our wishes to keep the announcements to a minimum (as he put it during our first meeting: tasteful announcements, and let the music speak for itself). He was exactly what we were looking for in our wedding DJ and we would recommend him to anyone without hesitation! First Class was excellent to work with in general - everyone is so friendly and organized, their office location is great for meetings, and their online portal makes it easy to organize music choices all in one place!
I do not have enough time to write down all of the positive things from First Class Weddings! Best decision we made in our entire wedding process was having FCW on our team for the most important day of our lives. My husband and I got married on August 30th with a reception at Belle Mer and FCW was with us every step of the way leading up to the big day. Caitlyn was incredibly responsive and super sweet - a true pleasure to work with. She was on her game at all times and helped us so much through the entire process! We had DJ Mike Pardi as our AMAZING DJ and I don't even know where to begin with him. HE BROUGHT DOWN THE HOUSE! He got our guests up and dancing BEFORE dinner was even served! The energy lasted all night and we received so many compliments about Mike. We picked him because we knew we wanted a DJ to appropriately interact with our guests through music and entertainment - and he did just that without being obnoxious or stealing the show. Our must-plays were played and he even got in nearly all of our "if you have time" plays. He was incredibly professional and so fun to work with. We also had Stephen as our lead videographer. Wow - what a guy! So polite and awesome to be around. He played his role extremely well and was working diligently to capture any and all footage that he needed for the wedding and reception. Not once did he tell us what to do or how to act. He let the day flow as it should have and he worked so well with our photographer, who was not part of FCW. With FCW we also had uplighting and a photobooth - SO WORTH IT! Listen, just please do yourself a favor and book FCW for your wedding. It's a no-brainer. You will be supported and heard, and we just cannot recommend them enough. Great business, but even better people. If I could give more stars I would!
Absolutely amazing! DJ Andres was incredible. We had a lot of issues with our venue and he completely turned our night around and made it one we will never forget. When we told Andres what was going on he stepped right in and made sure everything moved smoothly from thereon out. Our guests were raving about how great the music was and how much fun he was the entire time. He played all the music we requested and more. Our guests were up dancing the whole time and each song was better than the last. I can't say enough good things about DJ Andres as he was absolutely amazing!!!! We also had Marco and Billy for video who were equally amazing and capturing all the great moments. We truly can't thank DJ Andres and first class weddings enough for the incredible job they did!!!! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for amazing, professional and reliable service.
Reliable and easy to work with! Photographer Josh London and Videographer Marco Corrado were such a pleasure! From cramming them in the limo with all the bridesmaids, to driving them around the island looking for the perfect spot, to calling them over for every special moment throughout the evening, these guys had such enthusiasm, professionalism and patience! And we are very pleased with what we've received so far!
There is a reason their name is First Class. You will not find more passionate, detail oriented, accommodating and FUN people for your wedding day. It starts with Caitlyn and Josh, who listen to your vision and have the experience to make that vision come to life. The best part is you feel like you’re their only client because they are so attentive and willing to help in any way. We had Mark and Jill as our DJ and photographer team and WOW. Jill did our engagement pictures and her warm and inviting personality was even able to get my very shy, goofy fiancé at the time out of his shell. She did such an outstanding job. Her pictures are SO good she doesn’t even need to edit them, but she will because her eye for detail is incredible. On the wedding day she was just as perfect, organized and a pleasure to work with. Anytime I thought ‘aww that would make a great picture’, Jill was already in the background capturing the moment. I can’t wait to use Jill again for other life milestones 🙂 Now Mark, shut the house down!!! Literally no one left our dance floor all night. It started with our consultations when I knew we both just clicked with him and he got our vibe. He even slowed down our first dance song so we were more comfortable. The night of the wedding, he read the crowd, listened to our style and absolutely killed it. He was so passionate all night and his energy was infectious. People are still talking about how much fun they had every day since and I attribute that completely to having the BEST people around me. First Class Weddings will not disappoint.
I am not sure where to start. I was the lucky bride that had the First Class Weddings team at my wedding. I had Mike Pardi as my DJ, Jazz & Tara for photography and Stephen Cwiok as my videographer. All of these people were the best ever and made my wedding so special and fun. DJ Mike Pardi was amazing he knows how to get the crowd on the dance floor and was a natural on the microphone. My dad requested to so a small mix for our father daughter dance and Mike listened to how i wanted it and made it happen. He was very easy going and easy to talk to on the phone and I couldn't have had a better DJ. Jazz & Tara were excellent photographers and such a cute couple. They both listened to everything that i wanted and made sure that they were able to take as many pictures as possible. Both Jazz & Tara were very sweet people and a pleasure to work with. Jazz also traveled to Wells, Maine to take our engagement photos and we were very impressed with his work. They were both awesome easy going people and i am so excited to see my wedding photos. Stephen was my first videographer that i had ever worked with and he did not disappoint. I talked to him the week before my wedding and he was a pleasure to talk to. He listened to everything i had to say and gave me many options and specifics of what he was going to focus on filming. When i met him the day of the wedding he was very chill and laid back and you could tell he really focuses on his work and was able to capture every moment. I also requested that him and the photographers come to our hotel prior to the wedding so they could get some getting ready footage of the guys and the girls and they showed up on time no questions asked. I will recommend all of these people to everyone as i really feel like that i had the top notch team of vendors. Mike Pardi, Jazz & Tara, Stephen Cwiok were the best and i couldn't have asked for a better wedding. If you choose any of them for your wedding you will be happy and a lot less stressed as they all made me feel very confident and less nervous for my big day.
DJ Mike Pardi and the whole team at First Class Weddings provided nothing but first class service!! Our first consultation was with the owner Josh who was professional, attentive, knowledgeable, but most of all down to earth! He matched us with the perfect DJ for our style. DJ Mike Pardi did an AMAZING job at our wedding!! From helping my dad surprise us with a special guest (The Godfather) during his speech to mixing up the music to keep all our guests dancing the whole night! Mike's MC skills were on point! He did a flawless job making sure the entire night transitioned smoothly! With his expertise Mike was able to make our wedding dream a reality!! Bobby also did an excellent job entertaining our guests at the photo booth! Even our older guests couldn't resist to grab a prop and take a shot! We also used them for their uplighting services which kept the energy high all night long! If you're looking for a wedding vendor that treats you like family, look no further! We loved working with FCW and will absolutely recommend them to family and friends!!
My husband and I just recently got married on 10-28-17 and we were lucky enough to have First Class Weddings as apart of our day. Anthony was our DJ and from the moment we met him we knew he would be amazing. As the reception had its hiccups as all weddings do Anthony walked me through the whole night and was constantly communicating what steps would be next. As the night continued and the next day came we couldn’t have received enough comments on how good the DJ was, so thanks a million Anthony!! We also got a last minute photobooth through FCW (like 2 weeks before the wedding last minute) and the FCW delivered. Overall we had an amazing experience with FCW and Anthony and I will absolutely be recommending them to everyone!
FCW is AMAZING!!!! There's no other way to say it. DJ Joshua Wiseman and his staff are absolutely hands down the way to go when looking for ANYTHING wedding related. We met with them and instantly felt like family and like we had known them all our whole lives. Our wedding was a dream and DJ Josh made it all flow so perfectly. My mother-in-law got her JP license and was nervous about the ceremony. She met with Josh before the ceremony and he worked with her and calmed all of her nerves. She was so thankful for him. He arrived ahead of time, set up for the ceremony/cocktail hour and pretty much ran the show. I did not stress the entire day because I knew Josh would have it under control. During the reception the dance floor was ALWAYS packed. He played a variety of music and was always making sure everyone was having a good time!! Every time we talk about the wedding people start by telling me how good the music was!!!! Now as for uplighting, Caitlyn literally brought the meaning of uplighting to a whole different level. She arrived early, showed us different colors, and explained how it would go. During the reception, the uplighting went with the music and kept the momentum going the entire time! As far as the videographer, Curran Ferrey, was unbelievable. He was there but wasn't in your face like most videographers tend to be. He was so chill and again, made you feel like you've known him forever, oh and his work is amazing!!!! All and all FCW is a one stop shop with the greatest talent around. If you want to work with down to earth people who know what they're doing please pay them a visit! YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED!!! Thank you FCW for making our wedding day so special! We love you guys!!!
I had an AWESOME experience with Mike Espo as our DJ for our wedding a few weeks ago! We were matched up with someone based on what we were looking for and our general music style and Mike was perfect for us. We got so many compliments on the DJ but also how "us" it was. First Class also has a really awesome online portal to help organize music for different parts of the reception. Very professional, very fun. I would without a doubt recommend Mike and First Class Weddings to anyone getting married or having another event!
I don't even know where to begin. We went to see Josh completely unsure of what we were doing, because let’s be real, the entire process is overwhelming. That was until we walked in, and actually sat down with Josh. He laid everything out for us, and made us feel like we were family. I know that sounds so cliche, but that’s what FCW is. I will note that we are a super chill couple, and that might sound like a good thing (it is most of the time, just not when you're trying to plan a wedding), I think that we were probably a little bit difficult for that reason. Soo we thought that might be an issue, but Josh knew exactly how to handle us. He offered suggestions to guide us, and made the process super easy. Everything we wanted/needed was not an issue. Fast forward to wedding day. They were setting up for a night of fun, and with all the equipment they still made it a priority to carter to us. They honestly went above, and beyond to make sure that we were happy with every aspect of the night, not just the DJ responsibilities. We will never forget FCW, and how they turned our day into our perfect day!
