Thank you so much for yesterday everyone commented on how amazing you were and when I was about to walk down the aisle my husband said he even teared up listening to you and I did outside! My friends loved it and danced until midnight!

We loved Sugar Sweet Duo at our wedding so much we hired them again for our joint birthday party! For the wedding, they did two 45 minute sets but because the time just flew by so quickly we asked them to do two 60 minute sets for the party. Many guests commented on how good they were and the DJ playlist after the set was great, again. Melissa and Joe are so friendly and enthusiastic, we can't recommend them enough. We need to think of another excuse for a party!
