Above and Beyond...
REVIEWS FROM FOLKS WHO HAVE WORKED WITH CORI
"Cori is an amazing person to work with and made a wonderful day even better! She went way above and beyond my expectations and was a wealth of knowledge (i.e. what songs were going to work and what songs were perhaps better for a road trip). She even helped out my bridesmaids with setting things up and took the time to ask if I needed anything (anything beyond the awesome music my guests were enjoying!) during the reception. There were no corny jokes or poorly timed DJ moments like you read about on-line when looking into wedding music options. Cori checked with me on any guest song requests (like my husband's little cousin's Bieber request) and was always on top of things. Everyone was dancing!! Ages 2-88 were having a blast and that's exactly what we wanted. I can't thank Cori enough and truly feel that beyond DJing, she is a really incredible person that anyone would be lucky to know!"
"Cori was wonderful to work with! She was very organized and so helpful with all the small details that I hadn't thought of regarding the music and flow of my reception. She was energetic, listened to my requests, and made sure to follow through with what we had discussed to ensure my reception ran smoothly. I still receive compliments on how great the music was and what a wonderful time guests had. She really knew how to pick the right music to get the crowd up and dancing! I could relax at my reception because Cori kept the evening flowing smoothly. I highly recommend Cori. She's an amazing DJ with a great personality!"
"Cori is an amazing DJ! I was the maid of honor at my best friend's wedding, and I could not have asked for a better DJ. She was kind to everyone, played excellent music, and kept the party going throughout the entire wedding. Cori went above and beyond. She helped guests with whatever they needed before the ceremony- truly a kind person. She was also very attentive to the bride, groom, and rest of the bridal party. She honored all of the bride and groom's music wishes, as well as playing music for all age groups to get everyone dancing. I will always be grateful to her for helping to make my best friends' day so special and memorable. I would book her for every kind of event!!!"
“Don and I had the good fortune of working with Cori at our 2016 wedding. She was recommend to us by our photographer, Emily MacIntosh, another great professional. Cori was the perfect fit for us. She was extremely professional in all aspects of her DJ services. Our initial meeting was a meet and greet at the local coffee bistro (the lounge at Dunkin Donuts). Right from the start, we knew she was the one for us. Cori made us feel comfortable and at ease. She was receptive to our thoughts and ideas and willfully shared her thoughts and experiences. We did not feel rushed at all as we listened to, and started picking songs and planning the flow for our wedding. We followed up with Cori as the day grew closer, staying in touch, dotting all the "I's" and crossing all the "T's". Making a few, maybe more than a few, changes; she took them all in stride and made sure everything was planned out, exactly the way we wanted. We had a beautiful outdoor wedding at Cascade Park in Bangor. Cori did not disappoint. She brought her "A" game. She was very organized and handled the audio and music for the ceremony. She also kept all aspects of the ceremony on track. Our reception followed at Spectacular Events and Cori continued her magic there. It was very important to us to have someone "in charge" on our wedding day. We did not want to be making decisions "on the fly". Cori was that person! We highly recommend Cori Skall and Happily Ever After Entertainment Services to anyone looking for that perfect fit DJ/planner on their special day.”

“Cori was absolutely amazing to work with. People are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding – and the music was such a big part of that. The dance floor was packed the entire night. I danced so much, I think I pulled a muscle! She went out of her way to meet with us twice when we were visiting Maine to plan the wedding (we live in NYC) and had such great ideas for everything from the flow of the event to lighting to specific song choices. Her thoroughness and confidence put us completely at ease. We knew she'd make sure the night was great and she came through 100%.”

"I just want to thank you for the FINE job you did at our wedding reception! You were so funny, entertaining and well organized! The music and announcements were perfect. We really appreciate your huge effort toward ensuring things ran smoothly on our special day. I will happily recommend you to anyone who inquires about a DJ in the area. You are simply awesome!"

"Cori went above and beyond what we had expected for a DJ. She worked with us on everything from staying within our budget to recommending song flow for the ceremony and reception. She even had an emergency kit to help hem my dress more when I kept stepping on it! Cori truly wants your day to be special and she makes you feel like your wedding is her top priority. My husband and I really couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out. Thank you Cori for making our day so memorable!"
MATT & ASHLEY DAY
"We found Cori through our wedding photographer, who had worked with her on previous weddings – after the first meeting, we knew we'd found someone who fit our style. Cori sat down with us, listened to the music that we love, sifted through our song choices, and gave us her own recommendations for what might work in each moment. Her knowledge of the wedding mechanics helped us plan the entire proceeding - our wedding could not have been more perfectly tailored! She has a fantastic sense of humor, an extensive understanding of music, and a gift for connecting with the people for whom she plays. I couldn't recommend anyone better!"

"We are so glad that we chose Cori to be our DJ for our wedding last summer at Camp Jordan! She met with us months ahead of time to go over song choices and stayed in touch with us throughout the process. She presented the idea of making up personalized funny intros for our bridal party entrances. She had us say a few things about each person and our relationship to them and she came up with the funniest, most clever headliners. She even sent us a copy prior to the wedding for our approval; all of our guests thought the entrances were a hit! You know the music was phenomenal because this bride stayed on the dance floor from the very first song to the last! Cori went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly on our BIG day. Through working with our vendors to get everyone on the same timeline, to making sure our schedule was followed through, she truly was the glue that held our reception together. Our wedding would not have been so beautiful, fun and organized had it not been for Cori. Hands down the best experience."
DAVID & KALEIGH FALLS
This hardworking mom of four was the perfect DJ for our wedding day! My husband and I were blown away by her helpfulness as she went above and beyond to make our day great. She was particularly compassionate and receptive to our needs, as we made adjustments to help with sound sensitivities in the wedding party. By the end of the night, she felt more like family! If you are in need of a DJ, we would highly recommend that you talk with Cori!!
I am not exaggerating when I say that Cori made our wedding day perfect. She is more than just a DJ. She helped us plan the entire timeline of our day and she worked SO hard behind the scenes to make sure everything went off without a hitch. She was essential to our day and I can’t imagine having anyone but her along the way. She is highly organized, incredibly professional, fun, supportive, and so incredibly kind. If you don’t hire Cori for your special day then you are truly missing out. I can’t recommend her enough!!
Cori does an incredible job! Jesse and I were able to relax, knowing that Cori was in charge of our wedding reception. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. She even sent me some encouraging words when my wedding jitters started! I cannot recommend her more!

SOUBANH PANTHAY, MEMORY MAKER PHOTOGRAPHY
Cori, was one of the best DJ we have worked with this so far within the wedding Industry. Before the wedding day she coordinated with other vendors to make sure everyone is on the same page to make the day exactly what the couples wanted and ran as smoothly as possible. She did an amazing job reading the reception and tailoring the music to fit the audience.She maintained a presence in the room without overshadowing the couples big day!
I have recommended her to each of our clients that we as photographers have worked with.
