The team of Lou and his wife where great in the planning process leading up to our wedding. They where very flexible working with us the entire time. We met multiple times in the months leading up to the wedding via Skype. It worked great because we lived in different States. Conducted music, provided wireless micro phones, and help direct the overall wedding ceremony. The reception was perfect. We gave a variety a music options to Lou and he really helped keep the evening flowing. Very professional and out going! Would recommend him for people in his area, or people traveling to that area!

A wedding is challenging enough as it is to plan, let alone over seas. Lou and Katja were amazing in helping us plan our wedding day set for Sarasota, while we were living in Germany. They provided us with worksheets, books and tons of useful information when it came to timing, music, layouts, etc. They spent time really getting to know us and keeping in touch through skype sessions.
When our wedding day arrived, they were amazing and on top of it all. They really were our wedding coordinators with the way they helped us plan and keeping everyone on track the day of the event.
Lou was wonderfully interactive with the crowd and made sure everyone was having a good time. He played both music for the younger crowds and for older crowds, so we had everyone involved that night and no one felt excluded. Katja even caught some beautiful moments and pictures throughout the night, while running the photo booth, which was an amazing hit with all the guest as well.
They went above and beyond, we're forever thankful to them for giving us such a special and memorable day.

Lou was the best DJ I have ever encountered at a party or event. He will put the FUN in your party....all the people at our event really enjoyed his music! He even got this stuffy little old lady up dancing....
He made us lol,dance,conga,,,,,,Everyone usually has enough to worry about the night of the big event.With Lou he made me worry a lot less.He has some great ideas and gives great support. He is also very flexible and will go with the flow...
I will hire him again and again....
Thanks for making our Awards Banquet a success

We loved having Celestial Event be a part of our wedding and reception! Lou and Katja had so many wonderful ideas and suggestions. Our guests can't stop talking about how personal and special our wedding was. You won't be disappointed if you choose to make Celestial Event a part of your special day!

Celestial Event provided uplighting and spotlighting at our reception at a historic building. The uplighting really emphasized the details of the building and gave the reception sense of professional detail that I thought only happens on celebrity wedding shows. It really added to the romantic feel of the reception and the spotlighting helped to draw people's attention at key times. The pictures of the event were so beautiful too with the spotlighting on our first dance. The uplighting also made for some amazing pictures of guests at the reception. Thank you so much for providing this service! We are so glad that we went with these lighting options!
This company was great! They helped us plan everything from start to finish and had really creative ideas for the music and events during our wedding. They really put out minds at ease and made our wedding as unique and as individualized as it could be! Thanks!!

Dear Lou and Katja,
This note is so over due! We want to thank you both to know how thankful we are for having you involved in our Wedding. You made our Dream Wedding possible by helping us personalize and literally bring it to life. We heard from nearly everyone of our guests, that our Wedding was the BEST they had ever experienced. I believe that it was because of you Two. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We could not have imagined a greater day!
We love you,
Kalee, Nolan & Shea
Hi Lou and Katja.
I apologize for our delay in sending you a BIG THANK YOU from Dan and I. We really enjoyed working with you at the wedding. You both put in a lot of time and effort to make our wedding memorable, fun, and perfect. We can't thank you enough for that.
The photo booth was a huge hit. We love the album you gave us and look at it often. I know our guests had a blast with it. We had numerous guests tell us that our wedding was the best wedding they had been to and that Lou was the best DJ they have seen. Thanks for keeping the show moving and for adding your special touches throughout.
You two really are exceptional, thanks for everything.
Have a great summer and good luck with your busy wedding season.

Celestial Event and Lou were absolutely fabulous! Lou not only allowed us to postpone his services when we had to postpone our ceremony but exceeded all of our expectations. We were able to meet with Lou several times so that we could get to know him and he would have a better idea of us as a couple. We gave Lou ideas of the music we liked and everything he played was just perfect! The best part of having Lou was the unique ideas he was able to provide to our ceremony such as the "shoe game"! All of our guests loved it and we were able to showcase ourselves and our love for everyone. Celestial Events will make your big day magical! I cannot recommend Lou highly enough!!

Celestial Event was the best DJ/MC we've ever seen. Lou & Katja were the best by far! They were very involved in helping us create the reception entertainment my husband & I had hoped and dreamt of. I would definitely recommend them to friends & family! Our friends are still raving about how our reception is going to be hard to beat. We've gone to a few more family weddings after ours and the DJ did nothing! It is incredible how just getting to know your vendor helps create the atmosphere. Thank you Lou & Katja again for the best and most memorable day of our lives!

Lou and Katja at Celestial Event did a WONDERFUL job for our wedding. It was more like hiring a wedding coordinator/entertainer then just hiring "a DJ." First of all, they met with us face to face a couple times before the wedding to plan everything out. They went over everything from schedule to layout of the reception and ceremony, they also were a great resource on stuff like how many bottles of champagne we would need to how many people would fit at each table. They had a lot of suggestions that we would have never thought about, like the key game, the shoe game (a huge hit), and personalized intros, which made our wedding so unique and special. They also came to our rehearsal and coordinated the whole thing so we know what to do on the big day. Everything ran so smoothly, we couldn't have asked for better help. I would highly reccomend them to any of my friends. Also as an added bonus, Katja was running around taking pictures and is sending them to us so we will have more memories to add to our collection. If you need a reference for them, feel free to ask Lou for my number and I can tell you more!

Lou and his wife Katia made our daughter's wedding so much easier and special for us. They handled so many little things. They are like having another wedding coordinator! They were there at the rehearsal, the ceremony, and for the reception. To say they are professional is an understatement. Lou wore a tux! They do much more than play music. They introduced the wedding party in style, coordinated dances and special events, and knew just the right music to play at just the right time. They are very flexible and spent plenty of time with our daughter and fianc√©e to know what music they liked and wanted, and plan anything out of the ordinary. They have lots of ideas to have a very special reception. Katia ran a photo booth during the reception which was a big hit as well. We had so many people comment on how nice Lou and Katia were during and after the reception. We highly recommend them!

Lou was absolutely the best DJ/Master of Ceremonies/Entertainer that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I had people in their sixties and twenties coming up to me saying in their experience of all their weddings (sometimes over 40) that Lou/Celestial Event was the best ever, and they were just amazed. The reception was so small, and Lou made everyone feel so welcomed, entertained, and interested. I had people laughing so hard they cried, and took his ideas and practices for their own weddings. I literally heard more about the DJ than I heard about anything else. My husband and I were blessed to have found someone this great and get a referral from our venue to him. He was worth every cent. His pricing is such an amazing value for everything you get out of it. He is a reception coordinator, the entertainment, and the one you can count on to get what you want done. I am 100% satisfied with Lou and Celestial Event, and I am not easy to please. He is one of the only people I know that could appeal to every age group. I would recommend him and this company in a heart beat!

Dear Lou and Katja,
Kristine and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for assisting us in making our reception special with your entertainment, comedy, fantastic music and most of all your true partnership. The addition of the Photobooth was a certain hit. with all our guests and we are thankful it was part of your repertoire.
We ar e certain that it wouldn’t have been this delightful for us or our guests without Celestial Event managing what turned out to be a whimsical evening for all!

Lou was the DJ for our September 18th 2010 wedding at Mount Princeton Hot Springs. He was great. He helped me with all my events, was early to the rehearsal and the wedding and was such a big help. He is very organized and professional. Lou knows how to keep the party going. I would highly recommend Celestial Event for your wedding DJ.

(Email) from Kristy and Kody: It was such a pleasure working with you, you are great. Thank you so much for everything that you have done for us. You went above and beyond. Let me know if there is anything we can do for you in the future.

Lou did an awesome job at our wedding! He did the ceremony music for us, as well as the reception music. The ceremony went perfectly, and the reception was a blast thanks to him! He kept the dance floor poppin' the whole night! (and our families and friends' don't normally dance much).
While working with Lou, he always seemed excited to be doing the music for us. I think he really enjoys what he does, and this is the most important quality in a dj!!
I will be recommending him to everyone in need of a dj..... Money WELL SPENT

DJ Lou provided an amazing service for us. We are truck drivers and the online tools to help pick out our schedule and songs was very useful as we were unable to have in person meetings. DJ Lou was also very helpful in answering all my questions by phone and he gave us great advice to make our day very special. Everyone of our guests complimented us on our choice of Celestial Events. They were very impressed by DJ Lou. Everyone also said that he made our reception one of the most enjoyable events they had ever been to.
Rebecca and Timothy, 10/12/2009 Wedding in Colorado Spring
Lou did an amazing job! He listened to what I wanted and gave me more! He has great ideas and strives for the best. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ.
Tues and Guy, 6/26/2010, Wedding Denver
Lou did such a wonderful job with our reception!!! He met with us several times before the event and made it really really easy to put everything together!! He provided us with worksheets that helped us plan the order of events, and he had a ton of great ideas!!!! We were very pleased with his service!!! I didn't have to worry about a thing at the reception which really helped our big day go smoothly. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and we got alot of compliments on how well planned and relaxed the reception was!!
Aaron and Sarah, 4/10/2010, Wedding in Salida
We were more than pleased with Celestial Event. Lou was an awesome DJ and he really listened to our needs. Lou was not only a great DJ and kept the reception exciting, he also helped us in planning the order of our wedding and reception with the tools and planning sheets that he had to offer. We knew that Celestial Event was exactly what we were looking for the first time we spoke to Lou on the phone because he spent time with us and went over many of details with us and answered all of our questions, we were not able to get from anyone else. Everyone bragged about how great our DJ was and we would highly recommend him.
Steve R, 10/11/2008, Wedding, Denver, CO
Lou did an excellent job with the music for our wedding. He was professional, on time and had great ideas to help us with our wedding music. He was also helpful in creating the timeline for the reception. He played the music on our playlist and kept the party going. I would recommend him for your DJ/Wedding music needs.
Stacey and Charles, 7/31/2010 Wedding Salida
Lou just DJ'd MC'd our wedding on June 5, 2010 and he was AMAZING! He was a complete lifesaver and took any concerns about the flow of the wedding, cocktail hour, dinner, reception out of our minds. The day was a whirlwind, but I can honestly say that Lou kept it flowing effortlessly. With so many people wanting to share their congratulations and well wishes, Lou made sure we stayed on track, getting people excited for...the Entrance, the Kissing Game, the Newlywed Game, the Dances, the Garter Ceremony, the Snow Ball and making sure we were there and ready! There was never a thought about when something was happening. We just listened for Lou or he found us. In hindsight, I realize how much coordination a wedding takes, and Lou did all of that. His hours spent on the phone with us getting details about our style, what we visualized, our wedding party history (and ours) and our family we're well utilized and the upfront effort he spent was obvious!
People continue to comment about how great and personable he was and how his antics encouraged people to mingle and socialize and have fun! We had numerous comments that this was the best wedding people had ever attended. I believe that and know without a doubt that it would NEVER have been such a fun afternoon/evening for everyone without Lou at the helm. My only regret is that even adding and extra hour onto the reception (ending at 11pm), everything ended too soon. I have never seen so many of my family dancing and having a good time together, ever. It really was a night full of wonderful memories!
Sarah and Eric, 6/05/2010, Wedding, Ouray
Lou was the best DJ we could have asked for. He quite literally made our reception. It was so much fun! He kept things moving so there was no down time at all. He is just a very creative, fun guy. Several of our guests commented that he was one of the best DJ's they'd ever seen. Thanks, Lou!
Kelly , 9/26/2009 Wedding in Salida
Lou did an outstanding job. My guests loved him. He kept my wedding fun and upbeat, which was a hard thing to do since I had a small wedding made up mostly of old people. He had great ideas for a bouquet toss that was untraditional since I only had 3 single women at my wedding reception. He also had us play a newlywed game that was fun and entertained everyone there. He went above and beyond by dealing with my rude and mostly absent wedding coordinator and did a great job of trying to keep my wedding on time. I thank him and all he did at my wedding. Without him it may have been a disaster. I recommend him to anyone for any occasion. Thank you Lou.
Rebecca and Travis 9/19/2009 Wedding in Evergreen, CO
Lou was wonderful. He went above and beyond our expectations! We really enjoyed "our story" that Lou presented prior to our toast. We also loved the full screen playing back pictures of our beach wedding during the reception. Lou and Katja made our day run smoothly and we could not thank them enough.
Sarah K, 4/25/2009, Wedding, St Pete Beach, FL
Professional, friendly, and fun- Lou made the party! It was by far the most fun I have ever had at a wedding, which I have been told is a difficult feat given that it was my wedding. Lou ensured that everything ran smoothly, made sure that everyone was included, and even got creative with props. We have received countless compliments about how great of a time everyone had
Bradley 5/16/2009, Wedding

Lou did a great job and I would recommend him again. His best qualities were:
People loved the music He read the situations well and knew what the crowd would like The props were really fun The soft music was nice
Great equipment Lou is very nice, professional, and seems to care a great deal about the couple and their happiness
Emily A., 2008, Salida, CO
Sarah and I would highly recommend Lou for any occasion. He was more than we'd hoped for. He was an immense help at the rehearsal and even made an extra 35 mile trip to join us for the rehearsal dinner. The music for the ceremony was perfect, bringing more than a few to tears. As for the reception, Lou throws one hell of a party. Everyone had a fantastic time and I do not think I have danced that much my entire life. Without a doubt, if you are looking for a personable, affordable DJ and Master of Ceremonies, Lou is your guy. Sincerely, Chuck and Sarah

It was great to see you both at Dave and Ann Johnson’s “Petzafest”
this year benefiting The Ark-Valley Human Society, Inc. You assisted in raising $2,500. The money will help us provide compassionate care for unwanted animals that come to the shelters when there is no other place for them to turn. Lou’s participation as Master of Ceremonies added a lot of humor and fun to the event. More than severaln people commented to me regarding the improvement in the entertainment quotient at this year’s event when compared to last year.
