Why am I passionate about being a wedding dj. Why am I not trying my hand at the club circuit. Why do I deal with the calls and constant meetings with nervous or stressed out brides.
Because I am a DJ that cares!
I know I am helping you create a memory you will never forget. When you are 70 years old talking to your husband. You can tall about the playlist that started off your marriage. Through the years when you hear a certain song, you will think of something special. You will remember your first dance with your father. You will remember your cousin making a fool of himself to "Funky Cold Medina".
I will be honest being a wedding dj is hard work. The countless consultations, setting up, non stop work, then breaking down. I wouldn't trade it for anything at all. My energy comes from my clients. When I see the bride and groom dancing, laughing, and smiling. I know I did my job right.
I don't play certain songs or mix crazy mash ups so you can remember me. I am not on the microphone screaming my name every 30 mins self promoting. Being an obnoxious egotistical DJ is not in my blood. It's not about me, I do mash ups and play certain songs to make sure you get an experience that you will never forget.
My Job starts way before the wedding my job starts when you make that phone call to check out my prices. Or a friend recommended you. It doesn't matter were talking no. We are in this, my job is to figure out your pain points.
Communicate with wedding vendors.
This is a stressful time for the bride and groom. If they have any question or need help with venue's, finding a photographer, I do my best to help them. I love to coordinate with the other vendors so we are all on the same page so we can have a smooth day. To focus on whats important, the bride and groom.
To be honest no wedding is perfect. Situations will arise, I do my best to help them. Some clients call me the "Cleaner". I solve problems if I can. If the best man is missing, I'll find him. If the bridesmaid is crying in the bathroom I can calm her down.
You see its so much more than me coming in. Setting up my equipment and pressing play. Its the experience I enjoy. Its the thought of knowing that I helped add to the soundtrack of your life. That will never be forgot.
So I say this when you are hiring a dj for your wedding. Make sure they are invested in your experience. Ask them about back up equipment. See if they have a plan if they have an emergency on your big day.
Wedding DJ's we are more than a playlist machine....
My goal is to change the stigma of being a wedding dj. Reinvent what we do. Create those memories, so the guest will say that was an amazing wedding. Not that DJ was awesome, or that DJ talked to much. Because its not about me. Its about YOU!
So if you are looking for someone to assist your in your wedding and play some great tunes. Please give me a call, and lets set up your consultation so we can start your wedding planning off right.
