“My husband and I are self-proclaimed music snobs, which made finding the right DJ for our wedding a bit daunting. From our first conversations with Stylus, we knew we came to the right place. We were connected with DJ Sarah Van Buren who we cannot say enough good things about…she took multiple calls with us to make sure she got a sense of what we were looking for and was so supportive when we decided to postpone our wedding to the following summer due to the pandemic. When the big day finally came, she played everything we were hoping for and kept the good vibes alive all night long. “The amazing DJ” is often the first thing we hear about when we ask our guests what was so memorable about the night. Look no further for the best DJ in the area!!” -Mary P-The Knot & Google

Sarah just DJ’ed our wedding and captured our essence PERFECTLY!! We had a pared down wedding and didn’t quite know how all of our guests would be on the dance floor, but Sarah’s music kept everyone up! Not only did Sarah have the best taste in music and listened to our preferences, but she was so unbelievably enthusiastic and kind. We can’t recommend Sarah enough!!!!! Thank you!! -Jenny & Jack – The Knot

“We loved working with Sarah! She is fun, easy going and highly knowledgeable about all things music. When we first reached out to Stylus, we set up a a video chat and within a day, we made our choice, knowing we found the right fit. We put together a big master list of songs and shared information and ideas very smoothly via email, Google doc and Spotify playlist. Sarah was always eager to chat, quick to respond, and very flexible as our thinking evolved. A lot of that happened right at the last minute and she was always able to accommodate us without issue. Though she clearly knows her music, she is not the type to overly insert herself – she understands that it’s your wedding. We had a great balance of our must plays and suggestions with Sarah’s top notch selections (plus the occasional request). Many of our guests commented on how great the music was throughout the night.
Much like our experience with Sarah, working with Jane – the owner of Stylus – was always easy and enjoyable. She sets the tone for a company that is highly professional with a staff that is completely down to earth. We knew we could count on quick and comprehensive information when needed and willing flexibility. It was a true relief among the stresses of wedding planning. If you’re getting married in or around Hudson, NY – where Sarah has many connections – you should definitely check her and Stylus out!” -Kate & Steven –Wedding Wire and The Knot

“Stylus’s DJ Sarah Van Buren provided the music for our wedding ceremony and reception in Saratoga Springs, NY this May. As I think about different points in the night, every memory has music associated, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
Sarah was really easy to work with. We had several calls and emails leading up to the wedding. She made sure that she had all of the information she needed to make the evening go smoothly, and it really showed! My husband and I wanted to make our own playlist to make the music really personal. Sarah was so supportive of it and played exactly what we asked for while adding her own fun style. All of the transitions (introductions, first dance, etc.) were perfectly timed. Sarah also made a couple of announcements, which were crystal clear. She was the DJ I always wanted for my wedding, I’m so glad I found her.
Once I found out that Stylus is a female DJ group that will do personalized playlists, I basically decided I was going to go with them. To make the decision even easier, Jane responded to my inquiry really quickly and provided all of the information that I needed.

“Hiring Stylus was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Jane was extremely professional in figuring out contract logistics, and DJ Sarah was amazing both before and during the wedding in making sure we were on the same page about songs, announcements, timeline etc. Sarah – thank you for spreading good vibes and tunes during our wedding. It was such a treat working with you on making the music on our wedding day special and representative of who we are as a couple. Amazing vibes for cocktail hour, reception and dance party! Looking forward to staying in touch.” -Charissa & Jon –Wedding Wire and The Knot

“Our experience with Stylus was fantastic from the beginning to the end. Jane was really helpful in matching us with a DJ and transparent about pricing. Our DJ was Sarah van Buren and it was such a pleasure working with her! We had one video conference call to meet and go over our reception details about a month before our big day. For our first dance, we knew which song we wanted but couldn’t find a quality version, but Sarah found the perfect cover for us!
Our event was a cocktail style reception only, and on the day of, she was outstanding in every aspect. The two events for which we needed to coordinate with Sarah were our first dance and the speeches by our two friends. She was extremely flexible and gave us the option to move things during the night if we had to, based on when we and my friends were ready to go. I would highly recommend Stylus and Sarah for your events! Thanks again to Jane and Sarah!” -Haruka & Jason –The Knot and Wedding Wire

“My partner and I were searching for a queer friendly wedding DJ in the Hudson Valley area and were so thrilled that we found Sarah Van Buren. From the get-go, Sarah was incredibly kind, flexible, creative, client-centered and was a huge factor in helping to make our night as magical as it was. Sarah provided the music for both our ceremony and reception and went above and beyond to help us put forth our vision and was more available to us with support/help then we could have ever imagined. Sarah really listened to what we wanted and played all the songs we hoped for as well as adding great music that totally matched the mood of the event and both our music tastes. Our families are still raving about the great music and were all out on the dance floor loving it very early on in the reception through the remainder of the night! To speak to Sarah’s intuitive ability to cater to her customer’s taste she even threw in a song that was referenced in my best friend’s toast about our childhood (following my friend’s speech)—such a wonderful touch! It was so nice to have a DJ that is calm, fun, and considerate and even helped my partner and I solve problems the day of! From the beginning both Sarah and Jane were incredibly easy to communicate with via phone and email and always professional and kind. Thank you again for helping to make our big night fun and easy!” -Mallory & Vaughn –The Knot and Wedding Wire
