3. Do you offer your services for Ceremonies too? How many songs can I select for my Ceremony and/or Reception? ASE - Yes, you we offer an additional system for a small fee for your Ceremony. You can choose as many songs as you want for the Ceremony and we are happy to help you build the Agenda for that too.

4. How many mobile systems do you have in operation? ASE - We currently have 6 DJ rigs and 3 Photo Booths in operation on most Saturday nights.

5. What creative ideas can you share that will make our reception more fun? ASE - We have lots of ideas and have seen many different activities. We can send you our Reception Planner with all of the ideas in one document. Just send us an email and we will email it right to you.

8. Have you ever been to a wedding reception where something went drastically wrong? How did you handle that situation?

Everyone had fun and when the Bride and Groom showed up, everyone was ready to dance.
