Why I Love Weddings:
I love weddings because it is so special to be a part of one of the biggest milestones in someone's life. The day is full of raw emotions from jittery brides to nervous grooms. Every wedding has its own story and knowing that I am a key part in making it memorable is such an amazing feeling! For me, the best part of a wedding is seeing so much love in one space! You can see the adoration in everyone's eyes the entire time! Champagne toasts, first dances, and the first kiss are once in a lifetime moments! Watching the entire day unfold from the beautiful ceremonies to the heartfelt receptions is an astonishing feeling!
A Little Bit About Myself:
My love for music started at a young age. I started DJing at the age of thirteen at a local church! To make others feel what I am feeling when I mix music is a great, complex emotional journey! I recently got married, which is very exciting! I feel lucky every day to be doing what I love with the person I love!
Most Memorable Wedding Moment:
My most memorable wedding moment was when a couple wanted to play the wedding songs of both pairs of their parents, so the newlyweds could imagine the "first dance" of their parents' love stories. I worked with them to mix both songs together. The couple surprised their parents and invited them to the dance floor to re-share their first dance together. It was such a heartwarming moment, and I was so happy to have been able to provide that experience for the couple and their family.
How I Handle Music Requests:
When someone comes to me with a music request, I make sure to find it, and I determine if it fits into the couple's music decisions. If it checks out and I feel it fits into the mix, then I'll play it. My only exception is if the newlywed couple requests a song--then it gets played right away!
How I Get Guests Up And Dancing:
The way I get guests engaged and up on their feet is by leading the excitement as an MC. I'll put on a high energy song (like "The Cupid Shuffle", "It Takes Two", or "I Got a Feeling") and I get on the dance floor myself. This helps break the ice and reminds guests that it's okay to have fun on the dance floor. As a DJ, I'm largely responsible for keeping the crowd happy and content so I make sure I do! This requires a lot of attention to detail, communication skills, and people skills. I have always enjoyed reading people and helping people feel positive and full of energy!
I am passionate about being a DJ entertainer, but I also have other interests. I work full time as an electrician, and I truly love what I do. In my free time, I like to spend time with my wife. We really enjoy going to concerts, going on dates, and just being together in general!
