Review from Sarah

(H)e did an AMAZING job. Our venue (Memory Lane) paired us with Andrew, and after we filled out a form with some information about our song tastes and choices, we put all our trust in Andrew. He was very communicative with us before the wedding, and as for the day itself…well, the day was perfect, and everyone had A BLAST dancing.

He absolutely nailed our music tastes, just by simply reading the info we had to send. I was so happy! So many of our friends and family came up to my husband and I throughout the night to tell us how much they loved the music, and I think it was pretty obvious by all the dancing how much fun everyone had!

Thank you so much, Andrew, for knowing exactly the type of music to play for our wedding; it truly was perfection. Some of my friends and family are still talking about the music and dance part of our wedding, and it’s been two weeks!

all the best,

Sarah

Review from Linda

DJ David was as cool as his wild hair.

David did an excellent job playing the right music so that the dance floor was never empty. I appreciated his ability to keep everything in line from speeches to cake cutting. The lighting and booth were just as fun and wonderful. If you want your guests to deem your wedding as ‘the best one ever’ – you better hope and pray Altared is available for your wedding and book them immediately.


Meet Mikka

DJ Mikka Montigny’s first love was music. At a young age, he fell in love with dancing then he found the joy of creating mixed tapes for friends. He acquired his first set of turntables and a mixer at 19 years old and his passion for sound design was born. Through years of practice, Mikka has developed his own technical style of mixing and has been creating unique mixes since 1998. He has held residencies at many downtown Austin nightclubs over the past 20 years. His reputation is unparalleled with mash-up mixes containing transitions of house, hip hop, breakbeat, R&B, funk, disco, jazz hop, electro, reggae, and swing with undertones to world beat music.

Mikka’s love for sound design and making people dance naturally progressed from clubs and warehouse parties to weddings and corporate events. He’s extremely familiar with the art of mixing, the skill of blending, and the magic behind the beat.

Mikka is known for his professionalism, background in open format mixing, and his attention to detail. As a performer, Mikka’s charisma on the mic gets guests up and on the dance floor! If you love to dance, Mikka is your man.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact Mikka or the AWE staff.

Madeleine

5.0 Excellent Service!

We highly recommend DJ David at Altared Wedding Productions. He was easy to work with and everything went very smoothly. He had a quick response time and the payment system was easy to use. They were very thorough and sent through a questionnaire so that they could individually adapt their services to suit our style. He promptly answered all our questions and was in constant contact with our wedding planner to ensure the sound systems and lighting on the day were ready to go.

As for the actual wedding reception, David was polite and personable, he did a great job in parts where he needed to address the crown and provide directions. The music was fabulous – The dance floor was going off! Thank you!!


Jennifer

Just trust them.

Absolutely loved working with this company. Word of advice: just trust them. They know what they’re doing. They were extremely professional and created a world of lights that was beyond my imagination! Everything glowed in the most beautiful way. For budget reasons, we ordered some lights online. Altared was extremely understanding and gracious about this and even helped the planner hang these. Altared provided lights that were gorgeous and awe-inspiring but were not in the way. Their lights were for beauty and functionality but there were no loose chords, poles in line of sight, nothing. I don’t know how they pulled it off, but I would strongly recommend them to EVERYONE. We also used their photo booth, which was SO much easier than creating one our self like we originally planned. They were happy to give us a discount to fit this in our budget and very flexible to work with us. Fantastic staff and company. Pictures below don’t do them justice – the really fantastic pictures were too big for this website to upload.

We feel so lucky that he was a part of our magical night!

We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of Altared for our party games, lighting, and DJ services. DJ David was the absolute life of our party. He was so kind to everyone, showed a lot of care with his work, and just made the night flow seamlessly. His choice of music kept everyone dancing until the very end of the night and he was always behind the DJ booth with a smile and a word of encouragement. David is a wonderful MC, a really talented DJ, and just an all around great guy. We feel so lucky that he was a part of our magical night!
