WeddingWire Couple’s Choice Awards

We did it with The Knot Best of Wedding Reviews, and now we would like to express our appreciation for our amazing couples, clients, and fellow vendors from WeddingWire. We LOVE being a part of some incredible events and creating amazing memories. Our couples enthusiasm makes us feel incredibly lucky to be doing what we do! Their 5 star reviews have allowed us to be recognized by WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Awards year after year. According to WeddingWire, the Couples’ Choice Awards “recognize local wedding professionals who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and professionalism.” And now we’re blushing! We’ve shared a few of our favorite reviews below.

The Blue Wave Band was absolutely fantastic! They are gifted, talented, professional musicians that know how to make an event an awesome experience for the guests. The band’s performance created an atmosphere that truly made our New Year’s Eve Wedding Reception a huge success. The dance floor was full from the beginning to the very end and everyone had a blast (an amazing band is the ONLY thing that keeps the dance floor packed all night long). The comment we heard over and over from our guests was “That band is so amazing!” The variety of music they performed was impressive. We started the evening with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while the band played instrumental background music as guests mingled and visited and then later the band got the party rockin’ for the rest of the night with great dance music. I feel it is important to mention how much I value and appreciate the level of professionalism I experienced throughout the entire process. From the very first contact to book the band, prompt replies to all communications prior to the event, punctuality on the day of, appropriate dress and appearance of the band members, as well as their fun personalities and obvious enthusiasm and love of what they do, all made the whole experience stress-free, positive, and memorable. I give my highest recommendation for the Blue Wave Band to perform for anyone wanting to have first-class, live music performed at their event.

Oh my gosh, I cannot even begin to say how great Blue Wave Band was at our wedding. They really made our reception SO fun, and multiple guests told me they were one of the best bands they’d heard! They are super easy to work with, very detail oriented and professional, and always prompt with responses. I literally danced all night long thanks to their stellar performance!

We couldn’t recommend Blue Wave more highly – they made our wedding reception a total dance fest. We attended three showcases and saw a number of band members rotate through different songs – definitely recommend this to get voices to suit the musical style you want. Huge range of songs and they kept people going all night. Thanks so much!

Blue Wave was hands down, the best vendor from our wedding. They were easy to work with ahead of time- clear and communicative with an event planning page so you can easily update any changes. Closer to the wedding, they helped sort out all details with the venue and made sure we had exactly what we needed. On wedding day the entire band was incredible! Everyone was very talented and they had the perfect set list. We were unfortunately having a lot of problems with our caterer at the reception but Blue Wave Band was so fun that we forgot all about it. We last minute splurged and added two more band members (sax and trombone) and were so glad we did. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about the band and people were on the dance floor all night. Blue Wave was worth every penny and we would absolutely recommend them!


Blue Wave assembled an amazing group of musicians for our outdoor fall wedding in Hood River. The vocalists were superb – horn, keyboard, guitar, & drummer all outstanding! They were well beyond a typical wedding cover band! (Per our initial requests, we even got some jam sessions & solos throughout the evening – which did not disappoint!) The band performed flawlessly throughout our dinner, (never too loud but always just right), and then took it to another level during the dance reception afterward. (Want to add one special shout-out to the vocalist who sang a rendition of Nora Jone’s “Don’t Know Why” during dinner that was so perfectly performed & left us in awe 🙂 The playlist was spot-on, pacing exactly right, and execution at the highest level. The band members also showed up looking great as well! Prior to the event, we really enjoyed working with our producer who patiently answered all our questions – promptly & thoroughly. We certainly “Won’t stop believin” anytime soon…
