During the planning stages of your wedding, I will always be available to you as your planner and guide, helping you chose your music and create a custom timeline. I handle timeline details with great care as they are a critical step toward a successful wedding day (details from ceremony program music and staging, cocktail hour repertoire, grand entrances, special dances, toasting...and the list goes on). I also provide you with an online login planning area at my website where you can create DJ playlist and customize all of your music - no detail is overlooked.
As a professional DJ, guitarist, singer and emcee, I provide you with a unique combination which may be utilized in anyway imaginable. Adding live music during your ceremony and cocktail hour (even during dinner if you chose) adds elegance and class to your special day which no DJ can reproduce! There is no right or wrong way to mix up live music and DJ'd music. You may even have me DJ your ceremony if you wish or certain songs. The point is, you have lots of options with me!
When you consider the vast age differences and generation gaps among your guests (grandparents, parents, siblings, friends and children) a variety of music usually lends itself well.
Here is a creative example of how you could utilize me (programming your music is a personal decision and there are limitless combinations):
Pre-Seating: ambient live instrumental classical guitar performed 30 minutes prior to the ceremony commencement.
Ceremony: a special selection for the seating of the grandparents and parents. Classical prelude and processional for the bridal party and bride. A beautiful instrumental selection during the candle lighting ceremony. After the exchange of vows and pronouncement, I sang a special song the couple had me learn for them. Ending with a recessional instrumental song as they walked down the isle as husband and wife.
Cocktail Hour: directly following the ceremony, I moved locations to the cocktail hour where I sang upbeat cover songs providing a nice background ambiance.
Dinner / Reception: began DJing with high energy grand entrances, once the bride and groom were introduced and on the floor, I performed their first dance for them live followed by DJ background music as we moved into dinner. After toasting and dinner was complete, I DJ'd for the next four hours as everyone danced feverishly into the night celebrating!
