Weddings are our specialty. Your wedding day is a lifetime event that you don't get an opportunity to 'do-over.' Sure, there are unavoidable glitches and bumps sometimes, some things just happen. But overall, a successful wedding event hinges on careful planning, coordination and ultimately execution of the various elements by a skilled professional.

Oftentimes when I meet with clients, one of the first comments made is something along the lines of, 'We've never done this before, and we don't know what we should do (or what is considered acceptable or appropriate) for our wedding.'

First of all, I like to assure clients that it's


day. They can and are encouraged to put as much of an individualized 'signature' on their special day as they would like. One of my main enjoyments in this fun and interesting occupation is seeing what unique elements brides and grooms envision and create, and helping them realize their vision for this 'Gotta get it right the first time cuz there is no second take!' event that should create wonderful pictures, memories and anecdotes for a lifetime to come.

One of the primary concerns expressed to me by couples is that the expectations of their parents, friends, other family members and associates be honored. I find that while many brides and grooms know in a general way that they're going to have a reception party, and that there will be toasts, and there is a cake to be cut, and they would like to have a first dance, and so on, they don't really have a picture or a model in their heads that they can visualize. This is perfectly understandable! There is so much planning, so many details to attend to, that many couples just get worn out and hire a DJ because they were told that they should, but have no expectation of what that performer should do on the day.

This is why I believe so strongly in ongoing communication. I will meet with you in person, as many times as you like, to assure that you have a clear picture of the various elements: how the event will progress, what to expect and when to expect it. Of course, I am always available to you using all the modern digital conveniences: Cell phone, email, text.

I stock a truly gigantic catalogue of music for your ceremony, ranging from Sacred and Classical to Neo-Traditional, Gospel, Contemporary and more, to aid you in making choices for your ceremony. If there are to be live performers such as vocalists or musicians, I provide professional audio support to ensure a flawless performance.

I will go over each element of your wedding with you: Your Grand Entrance as a married couple, musical selections for the Cocktail Hour and meal (if applicable), the Best Mans Toast (and/or any other celebrants, e.g. Father of the Bride, Maid of Honor) reception party, from the time Guest Seating Music begins for your ceremony, to your Last Dance and Grand Exit from the ballroom, explaining how I will announce the Bride, Maid of Honor, etc.), Cutting of the Cake, Couples First Dance, Father/Daughter-Mother/Son Dance, Anniversary Dance (if desired), Bouquet and Garter Toss, and any other elements desired. I will furnish you with my Wedding Ceremony and Reception Planner, which forms a time-line for your event, and includes tools for you to custom shape the musical style and content you desire. Again, if you're at a loss, I will show you various 'sample' or 'standard' selections, representing the anticipated musical selections I would or have played at similar events. Usually, this will lead to increasing confidence for the couple, and they will begin to name specific songs that they would like to hear. More importantly, I become aware of what styles, songs, content you definitely

Don't Want Played

at your wedding.

You can customize your song list as much as you like. Some couples go so far as to program out each and every song to be played in the course of the event. I'm here to do it your way. You can rely on me to program the genres and titles you request into the flow of the event, or you can tailor the song list to suit your whimsy. It's really a matter of what you the couple desire for


wedding day.

Throughout your event , I am in ceaseless communication with your other party staff, getting updates about service times, making announcements to inform and direct guests, letting folk know that the cake cut and best man's toast are to be in approximately 10 minutes, so that children can be rounded up, trips to the bar or restroom can be made, so that no one has that disappointing experience of going to the powder room and returning to find that the cake has been cut and the toasts have been made, and you've missed ½ the first dance. I also check in with you regularly, to ensure you're having a great day, and that you are kept informed of the time line of events, i.e. 'Have you managed to get something to eat? Having a good time? If you're ready, I'm thinking I would announce that champagne will be passed shortly for the toast, and I'll come get you two in about 10 or so minutes and we'll cut the cake and do toasts, ok'? This also gives the non-champagne drinkers time to get an alternate beverage, or if there is no champagne, it gives your bar staff time to make and serve individual beverages so that everyone has a glass for the toast. This goes for all of the elements: First Dance, Bouquet/Garter toss, etc. I'll inform people ahead of time, coordinate with the staff, so that these items unfold smoothly and no one misses out from lack of information.

This is probably my best explanation to those who would say, 'But I have an iPod and a boombox, I know and own all the music I want to hear, why should I pay a DJ? I'm not even that much of a dancer'?

My response is that, you can certainly have a party without a DJ or other emcee. But it's doubtful that your party will roll smoothly, create fun energy, engage people and get them participating with each other, and truly become a memorable celebration that people look back on and fondly remember.

Every Wedding is unique. Every couple is individual. Every heart has different desires. My goal is to help you realize your vision for your wedding celebration in such a way ten, twenty or fifty years hence you'll look back and say, 'Now


was a party!'
