  • Komlan was amazing! He was super responsive to my emails/calls throughout the process. He was very organized which made it so easy. We had the DJ service + uplighting and it was so worth it! The uplighting looked amazing and really set the mood. He was a great DJ and had songs that made all my guests be on the dance floor. I would HIGHLY recommend him, he was fantastic!

  • Komlan and Christian from C’Est La Vie DJ’d our wedding in August 2020. We were SO impressed. They were extremely helpful and organized throughout the wedding planning process. Komlan was an excellent MC and helped the wedding reception run smoothly. We had a bit of a delay in our timeline and he did a great job of getting things back on track. The music was perfect and had our guests dancing all night long. Would 100% recommend C’Est La Vie for your next event!!

  • We hired C’ Est La Vie to be the DJ at our wedding & I couldn’t be happier with how amazing they were. From the beginning of the process, we experienced great communication & could tell from the start how much C’ Est La Vie cared about making our wedding day special. Komlan, our DJ did an absolutely amazing job. I had made some last minute changes to details & he was so willing to make it happen. He had an outdoor set up for our ceremony & had a indoor set up as well for dinner & reception. Komlan was so great at helping the evening flow right on schedule, was so friendly to our guests & played music that ensured our guests were out on the dance floor! I could not recommend C’ Est La Vie more, they did an excellent job & we will most definitely be working with them in the future for any events. We could really tell that this team truly cared about us & our wedding & they helped make it a night we will never forget!

  • I'm Hispanic and having a variety of Spanish & English music was a must for us. Our DJ (Jordan) definitely did an amazing job throughout the night. I would definitely recommend hiring C'Est La Vie.

  • Do you want a wedding where your guests will never be able to stop talking about how AWESOME the dance floor was, how there was never a bad song, and how surprised they were that your whole wedding of 200 people were actually dancing?! That is totally what you get with C'est La Vie! We couldn't thank them enough for the DJ and Photo Booth services they provided. #1 thing our guests talk about (seriously... everyone kept saying how FUN our wedding was) and it was because of C'est La Vie! I think it must be that everyone who works there just enjoys the job. Komlan responded to all of our questions super fast (honestly... we had to wait days or weeks for some vendors to get back to us, C'est La Vie usually took a day or less). They meet with you the week before the wedding as well, just to make sure everything goes off exactly how you want it to. THEY MADE OUR WEDDING! Hire C'est La Vie, we promise you won't regret it! :)

  • C'Eest La Vie was a dream to work with. Whether it was early on in the planning stages, changes in the weeks before the wedding, or even day-of changes, the team was professional, reliable, and executed flawlessly. C'Est La Vie has perfected its services. Their attention to detail, discovery questions, and suggestions were enormously helpful. There are so many little things you wouldn't know to think about, and their team was brought them all to our attention and guided us through. Special thanks to Komlan for accommodating our late stage equipment and service additions, and a huge thank you to DJ Bobby. Bobby read the crowd perfectly, seamlessly adjusted to changes, and was critical to ensuring our guests had a great time dancing the night away. Every guest I've spoken to since the wedding has talked about how great the DJ was. The photobooth services were excellent as well. Great props, great attendant, everyone was able to leave with some great souvenirs. I would recomm... Read more

  • It was such a pleasure working with C'est La Vie Events, specifically Komlan and Jordan. Komlan helped us to coordinate our event and was so responsive and communicative throughout the process. He thought of everything and made sure we had a concrete plan for the day of. Our DJ, Jordan, was excellent and gave us exactly what we wanted! He helped facilitate the night with entrances, toasts, dinner, etc. We described our music taste to him and he delivered! Our guests so enjoyed the dancing and the great atmosphere. We could have danced until dawn. Highly recommend!!

  • We met Komlan at a bridal expo. It was so refreshing to speak with him- most other DJ’s we spoke with there were impersonal and were pushy on their sales pitch. Every interaction with Komlan was so refreshing because he was very much wanting to make sure we had the best day and really listened to what we wanted in our DJ services. He was extremely professional and fun to work with. Komlan was our DJ for our ceremony and reception and he helped keep everything on track and flowing without interruption. He had the dance floor PACKED all night long. I know that is always something a couple wishes for, and DJ Komlan definitely pays attention to what the couple wants and what the guests are responding to. He is clearly a master at his craft. You can tell he was enjoying himself too- I think that speaks volumes to the type of service he provides. We cannot recommend C’est La Vie Events enough for DJ services, and definitely DJ Komlan himself. You will not regret it!

  • We had C’est la Vie at our wedding this June to DJ and host the photo booth, and we were very happy with their service! Komlan was always responsive and helpful, and our DJ Bobby was extremely flexible when we had a lot of extra details come up at the last minute. Everything went smoothly at our wedding, and we are so grateful for their great service! The photo booth was also a huge hit at our reception, and the attendant Noy was very friendly. Overall, we would definitely recommend C’est la Vie! Thank you again to Komlan, Bobby, and Noy!

  • I'm really glad we used C'Est La Vie for our wedding. Compared to other DJs they were relatively affordable, and the DJ/manager were both great to work with. We had DJ Jordan at our wedding, and he did a great job with the music. We introduced our own wedding party, so Jordan didn't have to do a ton of emcee-ing, but he was really great with the music. He definitely kept everyone happy, both older and younger folks, and kept the dance floor full all night. I would definitely recommend the company to anyone getting married in Madison!

  • Our DJ, DJ Bobby played great music and had the dance floor packed most of the night. When he played a slow song and the crowd thinned out, he knew just what to get them all back out on the dance floor. That being said, we gave a decent list of music that must be played and they were songs that you'd go to any wedding and the floor would be packed. My guess is 80% of songs on that list were played. The thing that lowered my rating the most was the number two song, Little Willy by Sweet, I put specifically on the list was requested by my mother and he told her that he didn't have the song. I had to go over and help him find it off of YouTube. What was the point of asking what was must play music if you're not going to make sure you have it. Another thing that I didn't care for was his ability to announce what was going on. Our timeline didn't go quite as planned so that may have thrown him off I dont know. When we were planning on doing the Bouquet/garter toss our videographer w... Read more

    Hello Dennis, We want to take the time to say THANK YOU for giving us the opportunity to take care of your wedding for you! It was an absolute pleasure working with you from the day contracts were signed leading up to the day of the wedding. We also want to take the time to address your review :-). We truly apologized for not having the "Little Willy" song you mentioned right away. When DJ Bobby printed out his paperwork that part was cut off and that is what lead to him not having the song and we truly apologize for that!!! We always have the ability to download any songs on the spot or stream them straight from YouTube through our sound system and we are happy to hear that DJ Bobby was able to do with your guidance. We are definitely taking all the responsibility on this and we are truly sorry! You mentioned 80% of the must play list of songs were played. That is usually the norm for every wedding when you have a playlist that is a little over 1 hour and 30 minutes. This is because we take requests from your guests and family members, plus the music also depends on how your guests are responding to the song choices on the dance floor (as you mentioned yourself in your review about DJ Bobby knowing exactly what to play to get people back on the dance floor whenever the crowd is thinning out. You have to factor all that in. There is so much more to the music and all that ties into playing your must play songs, your family and guests requests, and the overall energy on the dance floor. Your timeline also changed/things were delayed and that threw everything off (as you mentioned yourself). DJ Bobby did everything to accommodate and help get everything back on track for you. Whenever the wedding timeline is delayed (which definitely was not DJ Bobby/C'Est la vie Events' fault) everything gets pushed back and consequently it shortens the amount of time dedicated to dancing a little bit. This is also a factor to consider in 80% of your must play songs being played. But we are deeply sorry and we truly apologize for not being able to play 100% of all must play songs! DJ Bobby mentioned he did a great job for all announcements/MC'n from cocktail, grand march, special dances, but he definitely apologizes for not counting 1-3 or asking you to spin your bride. The spinning part is our fault. We as a company stopped having grooms/brides spin each other during these games because we noticed that brides/grooms prefer not to be dizzy prior to the toss of bouquet/garter toss. So we truly apologize for the change and we will retrain every DJ from here on to first ask grooms and brides whether they would like to be spun or not. You wrote "I thought he'd actually be the master of ceremonies not just some guy in the corner playing music I picked out". - We are sorry but that is a little bit harsh - especially knowing DJ Bobby spent a lot of time putting together a great playlist for you and driving 45 minutes out of town and back. We also want to point out that your must play songs are just a fraction of the time allocated for dancing. DJ bobby had to take care of the rest, read your crowd, and fill in all the songs for the rest of the night to keep your dance floor packed. We are sorry but we had to point that out because DJ Bobby is a great DJ and has been doing wedding with us for a while now, and he has 5 Star reviews here on weddingwire. We also want to let you know that when we MC we do everything not to overshadow the groom and bride, or to be the center of attention. Because we want the groom and the bride to be the center of attention. We focus more of our energy on the music, reading the crowd, paying attention to how your guests are reacting to songs, make changes right away if your guests aren't feeling a particular song, and always making sure that your dance floor is packed at all time. Overall we are glad (as you mentioned) that DJ Bobby played great music and had your dance floor packed for you all night! We are glad to hear DJ Bobby accomplished that and made sure your guests had a great time on the dance floor. But we definitely are taking responsibility and apologize for the issues you mentioned were not properly done, and we will use this review to train/retrain all DJs for next season, to ensure that this does not happen again and that we continue to provide great services as we have been doing over the past 10 years! Thank you again for the review, for giving us the opportunity to take care of your wedding and we wish you all the BEST :-).

  • Komlan responded very quickly from our initial inquiry and got our date booked. They reached out to us at key points in the process to ensure everything was in order for the reception. We went with their dj, photo booth, and up lighting package which was competitively priced. Jordan was our dj and he was awesome to incorporate some of our unique song requests while using his own judgement to pick songs to keep people dancing. The quality of their sound equipment is top notch and sounded great. Jordan made sure every detail from ceremony through the last dance was spot on. The large photo booth was a big hit for our guests and Julio made sure it was running all evening. It was definitely money well spent. We are very pleased with CLV.
