The M2M Team was fantastic for our wedding. Great value and customer service along with providing a terrific experience for our wedding. Lots of guests came up afterwards to say how much they enjoyed the DJ. Dealing w/ DJ Coria was a great experience - very responsive and flexible to our needs. He and his team handled our two locations (ceremony and reception at different venues) with ease. He played all the important songs we requested and nailed the rest of the line-up. He also helped crafted a "first dance" song to a specific length with ease. DJ Coria provided the perfect, stress-free experience that we needed on our important day all while fitting into our small budget. I'd definitely recommend. More...

We heard them first at a friend's wedding and had a great time dancing at that wedding. We figured if we had a great time as guests, we would certainly like them for our wedding. They were professional, quick to respond, flexible to meet with, and had great suggestions for songs we weren't sure about (entrance, cake-cutting, etc.). I would definitely recommend them to a friend. More...

DJ Coria was amazing before and during my wedding. He has a portal that allows you to organize your event and to request music. He stayed in communication with me prior to the event, and made the entire process very smooth. Beyond that, he and his fellow DJ were great. They kept the party going and people were dancing all night! I highly recommend Melodies to Memories for your wedding/event. More...

DJ Coria made the entire ceremony & reception run smoothly. He was extremely professional & a great entertainer. Coria kept in contact constantly throughout the planning process & event to make sure he knew every detail of how the night should go. He even left extremely early for my venue during a hurricane to make sure he was there on time. If that’s not a reason to pick him as your DJ, I don’t know what else is. He made our wedding memorable and I highly recommend him to anyone! More...

We hired Coria as our DJ for our wedding, and we loved working with him! He was always on time and available to discuss any question throughout the planning process. He also went out of his way after chatting with me to discuss final details with our wedding coordinator - something that made planning much easier for me. On the day of the wedding, he kept the party going all night. Our guests had nothing but good comments about the music selections. We had a mixed crowd of younger and older guests, and everyone loved having him. We 100% recommend him!! More...

We had Coria RVA at our wedding reception. He touched base with us multiple time before the wedding to discuss song choices, timeline, and how we wanted the overall reception to go. The day of the wedding he texted us to let us know he was on the way and also when he arrived. He really was in tune with the crowd and kept everyone on their feet dancing the night away! I would highly recommend Coria RVA! More...

DJ Coria goes above and beyond when providing his services. Very responsive with emails, always making sure you are satisfied, provides valuable experience, and works with you to meet your budget.

Coria was our wedding DJ and we'd hire him again in a heartbeat. He's professional, humble, punctual and talented. He played a wide variety of genres that kept people on the dance floor all night long. We had a ton of compliments on the music that night! Music/Dancing is one of the only things (besides food/cake and booze) that people will remember from your wedding. If you want your guests to have a good time, hire Coria! More...

I hired Coria for to DJ my 26th birthday party at our local bar. He called me just an hour after booking to introduce himself and begin planning, and we then planned to meet in person at the bar to plan out everything. On the party day, Coria arrived hours in advance to prepare and have everything ready before the guests arrived. He played a variety of music that got all of the guests up and dancing! He even played longer than the requested amount of time, at no extra charge! Working with Coria was a breathe of fresh air and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a great party!

My husband and I searched for a wedding DJ and were concerned about finding a quality DJ at a reasonable price. I came across Coria’s profile and read all the great reviews and was sold. He immediately called us to talk about our relationship and wedding plans and later scheduled an in person meeting to go over everything. He helped us with our event timeline and was available for any and all questions we had. He was extremely professional and personable throughout he entire process! I added some last minute adjustments and he happily obliged and made our event one to remember. I have received many compliments from wedding guests because everyone had such a great time. The dance floor was full all night! We highly recommend Coria for any DJing needs! Thank you again for such a great night!! More...

Very easy to work with. He played all the songs we asked for, and he was professional and always prompt in answering any questions my husband and I had. He also had Karaoke for us! He was clearly very experienced, as he had a lot of helpful tips and ideas for timing certain parts of the wedding and for handling announcements, etc. It was so much fun! Very accommodating (and patient) too. Thank you so much, Coria! You made our wedding an amazing party. More...

Coria was an amazing DJ- we worked with him and his team for my wedding on September 29th and he was excellent. He kept everyone on the dance floor and played exactly what I had asked. He also played a few christian songs for our ceremony which was perfect to be able to have both. Thank you for a night I will never forget. More...

Coria was really really great to work with and so flexible with any changes, regardless of time. The only thing I wished was different was that I gave a list of songs that were requested by our guests and some songs played were not part of that list which I felt made it hard for people to really get into the dancing. Especially when peoples requests, to us as a couple, were a priority to play (maybe we should've communicated that better from our end). Otherwise, I was very pleased to work with Coria. He did a great job remixing a track for a mother/son dance that everyone LOVED. Thanks again! More...

Coria was absolutely the best choice for our wedding DJ that we could have chosen! He was so great to work with leading up to the wedding and was always in contact, even if it was just to check in which a quick “hey” because we hadn’t spoken in a couple months. Everyone had such a great time and he kept everyone dancing all night! We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a great, fun, keep the party going DJ! More...

In the chaos that is wedding planning, it is nice to have a vendor that knows what they're doing even if you don't. My husband and I were absolutely impressed with his ability to put together a perfect playlist when we forgot ours the day before our wedding. Every detail was handled wonderfully from start to finish and at an amazing value. More...

My Husband and I chose CoriaRVA for our DJ and Coordination services. We are so happy with their professionalism they made our day spectacular. Francine provided excellent coordination and was present every step of the way. From questions to coordination ideas and music selections, they were very approachable and able to give great suggestions, we appreciated it greatly. Coria's Music selection was excellent, our guests kept dancing as well as the groom who is not a dancer. At the evening end Coria surprised us with champagne and strawberries at our suite, so nice!We will highly recommend CoriaRVA to friends and family. More...

Coria was amazing, start to finish, for our September 2nd wedding. He stayed in touch often, provided great suggestions, and was so personable and professional.

Music was one of the most important details for me at my wedding. DJ Coria was very professional and responsive to my requests and concerns.

We could not have been more happier with DJ Coria!! When I first contacted him, only about a month or so before my wedding, he responded so quickly and was beyond affordable. He was great at making sure he had genres we liked and didn't like and had songs picked out for each dance we were having ahead of time. DJ Coria stayed in touch each week with us. He was easygoing throughout all of our changes, especially the last minute change of where the ceremony would be due to weather. I couldn't praise him enough for how amazing his work is. He had us dancing pretty much the entire time with his selections! You can't go wrong with choosing DJ Coria as your wedding DJ!! More...

Coria was such a pro. He was so easy to communicate with before the wedding. He worked with me carefully to put together music we wanted and everyone would like. He was such a pro about coordinating with the venue, other wedding vendors, and the wedding planner and Mistress of Ceremonies. He was an excellent DJ and MC, and reminded me at key times of scheduled events, going with the flow when there were small changes. He even dresses to coordinate with the wedding at the couple's request. I would recommend him for just about any event. More...

On the wedding day, he made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. He was flexible and adapted to a few last minute changes we made during the reception. He read our crowd well and chose the right tunes that kept us dancing all night long! From very first contact until the end of the event, Coria put my mind at ease and let me enjoy my wedding.

We loved working with Coria! He was very responsive, professional and took all of our suggestions to make our wedding day exactly the way we wanted it to be. When he thought he didn't have the right equipment, he went out and purchased what he needed before our event. He worked with our acoustic guitar player and officiant to make sure they had the right mics and the right sound for the venue/space. The music sounded great, and Coria played a mix of new and old hits that had all ages on the dance floor. At the end of the night, he even managed to work in a surprise last dance for the bride and groom while the rest of the wedding guests were lighting their sparklers. It was a special moment that we will never forget.

We highly recommend Coria for any special occasion or event. Thank you again for everything, Coria!

Coria was great to work with! He was extremely responsive and asked great questions that helped shape our night. He also agreed to call out our door prizes - which we know was a bit unconventional, but ended up being so much fun! We incorporated song request cards into our RSVPs and he did a wonderful job of compiling those in with other music. While we didn't have a ton of dancers (not Coria's fault at all - just our crowd!) he did a great job of keeping an eye on our "timeline" and moving things along well. He was fully prepared for all that our night had to offer. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ! More...

I could not be happier with Coria RVA/DJ Coria. He traveled all the way to Virginia Beach for my daughter's wedding reception and made it a hit our friends are still talking about six months later. Knowing how to read a room and play the right music to keep the mood electric are part of what makes him so great. I absolutely would recommend his services. I could not have been happier with every aspect of the transaction--from planning to execution on the big day. More...

Coria did an amazing job from start to finish for our wedding ceremony and reception.

PRE WEDDING: Before the event, he was very quick and easy to communicate with. He helped me SO MUCH by going over the timeline of the entire evening with me and suggesting certain songs or genres for different parts of the wedding. He was very comfortable with announcing anything I needed/wanted. He made an itenerary based on our phone conversations, which he shared with me. When we made little changes, he was quick to update the itenerary and send it back to me. It really helped to feel like we were on the same page and I appreciated that.

CEREMONY & RECEPTION MUSIC: On the day of the wedding, he arrived early and was all set up before any guests arrived. I had tons of compliments about the music all night. As soon as the dance floor opened up, it was full on party mode. I provided Coria with a pretty detailed song list to give him an idea of my husband and my style (we love anything from Bob Dylan to Bon Iver to country). I explained that they weren't songs I had to hear, just examples, but, Coria played almost every song I listed! It was so nice!!

POST WEDDING: He even emailed me photos he took during the night. Also, in the craziness of the end of the night, we had a little faux pas on our end with payment and he couldn't have been nicer about it to get it resolved.

Coria really did an amazing job and exceeded expectations. I am very thankful he was able to not only guide my night and make it memorable, but helped guide me through the planning process as well. It was very nice working with him! THANK YOU!!
