DJ Samir's Mini-Mix
“Stumptown DJs was probably the easiest vendor we worked with during our wedding. DJ Samir was professional, friendly, and a real pleasure to work with. Matt and his team were very responsive on email and they had an awesome template and timeline which we walked through over the phone. Everything was planned out perfectly and nothing was left to chance. We even met with DJ Samir twice before the wedding to get to know each other and walk through the plan. Very happy with how everything turned out and highly recommended! Samir has such a warm and happy personality, he makes any party better!”
