Shino, one of Bonita Sound's talented DJs, was so perfect for our multicultural, bilingual wedding.
Shino perfectly executed our ceremony music - bringing all his own equipment - with little instruction from us. Guests had tears in their eyes during the ceremony.
We had a great dance party featuring all my favorite songs. I danced to every single song at the wedding. How many brides can say that?!
Our family said how warm and charismatic Shino was. Shino honored all our wishes, including to have all guests join us for the first song rather than having a traditional first dance.
We had both a 1 year old and an 81 year old enjoy the dance party. That’s magic!
