DJ Pushkin – Review from a happy bride :)

Michelle Zaritsky with Arthur Kulnevsky and 3 others

Hello everyone! For the last 9+ months I’ve had the stressful honor of planning my wedding😉 On September 19th, I married my best friend of 10+ years at the Skylands Manor of Ringwood, NJ. I felt like a queen for the day in my own castle.  I want to say how amazing and crucial to me DJ PUSHKIN Alex Pushkin was. From the moment I met him, I knew he was the man for the gig. He has an awesome personality and truly knows this field. He was always available to speak to and bounce ideas off of, no matter how ridiculous or elaborate they were..LOL.. He played the most eclectic mixture of Russian, English, and Spanish songs. Everyone, no matter their age, was up and dancing the ENTIRE night! He was also in charge of the uplighting for my ceremony and reception, both of which were absolutely stunning! He also provided videographers for the day. I was a bit nervous because I had never really spoken to them, but the second they arrived all my hesitancy disappeared. They had such great creative eyes and captured all the little details that I had worked so hard to plan. Alex also went above and beyond to secure an MC extremely last minute (I’m talking about less than a week) for my wedding after the one I had booked canceled. My MC Gary was uhhhhmazing! He took care of everything and then some, always with a smile on his face. Alex Pushkin is truly the most incredible and multitalented vendor I had the honor of working with for my wedding. I HIGHLY recommend him!





For this wedding Pushkin Studio provided up lighting for ceremony, moving heads, gobo monogram projection, and up lighting for reception, DJ, MC, Sound Systems for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, and Cinematography.

So you found a cheap lighting package, and wonder how it will look? Here is an example

Here is an example of what happens sometimes, when lighting is provided by the venue

And here is an example of up lighting offered by venue (as you can see it’s not very powerful, and doesn’t really do much)
