Most guests will arrive within a half hour of the start of the ceremony. During that time, I will play very light background music (usually acoustic guitar, piano, or string ensemble cover songs). It will be loud enough to be heard, but not at a level that would be obtrusive. It simply makes the atmosphere seem more inviting.
You get to choose exactly what songs your guests hear as the parents make their way to their seats, as the groomsmen walk up to the altar, as the bridesmaids, flower girl and ring bearer walk up the aisle, and ultimately, the bride.

Your officiant will be given the option to wear a wireless clip-on mic for the ceremony. A wireless hand-help mic or one on a stand are other available options. If you are having a friend or family member do a reading during the ceremony, a separate mic can be made available for that purpose. If your ceremony is in a remote location void of electricity, only corded mics will be available for use.
Nothing says "It's time to celebrate" quite like the recessional music as the bride and groom walk (or dance) away from the altar as husband and wife for the first time together. Whatever song is chosen, it lets your guests know that now it's time to have some fun. Click below for some options.
I have personally done over 300 weddings, so I have experience in the nuances and structure of the reception. I will introduce your speakers for the toasts and blessing, and provide a wireless mic for them, as well. I will make all of the important announcements to let your guests know what events are happening soon and keep the evening flowing seamlessly.
Exchanging texts and/or emails has proven to be the most effective method of communication with my clients. However, if you would like to meet in my home office, hold a virtual meeting via Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangouts, or simply talk over the phone, I am always available to listen to your concerns or ideas and offer my suggestions, as needed.
Once your first payment is processed, you will receive a link in your email to a questionnaire (or questionnaires, if a ceremony is included in your contract). The questionnaires are accessible 24/7 across all platforms (PC/Mac/Mobile). The goal of the questionnaires is to channel your thoughts and ideas as to what I will need to know to effectively DJ your reception. You will also be given access to an interactive timeline creator and music request database to prepare for your wedding day.
Without a doubt, the bridal party introduction SETS THE TONE for how exciting the rest of the reception will be. We want your guests to be as excited as you are. During our final meeting, we will go over the pronunciations of every member of your bridal party that will be introduced. You can choose to have the same song played for everyone during introductions or give each couple, including the bride and groom, their own unique song based on their requests or personalities. It's the same price either way.
All wedding receptions come with LED dance floor lighting to help energize your guests. During the slow songs, the lighting slowly transitions from one color to another, while the lights become sound-active during the fast dance music, pulsating to the beat of each song. We don't use strobe lights, so we won't have to worry about endangering those guests that are prone to seizures, and your photographer will appreciate the fact that my dance floor will be laser light free.
Your guests will have the option to send me a text message to request their favorite songs. Whether that means cocktail hour, dinner or open dancing, they can always request a song from the comfort of their own mobile device.
