Accept yourself, Love yourself and Celebrate yourself!

When Fuse weddings and Events contacted me for this wedding, they wanted to make sure I was comfortable with same sex marriage, and my answer was Hell Yes. This is something I wanted to do and Alec and Blake were the right couple for my first time. Alec is full of energy and confident. At our consultation meeting we became friends and were able to talk about their special day in details and what exactly they were looking for from me. I couldn’t be happier to be the one they chose. After the wedding he told me he was just going to have a friend DJ, but after some thoughts and some advice for the experts at Fuse Wedding and Event, he decided to go with me. We stayed in touch every other week to make sure we were always on the same page as the date got closer.

The day of the wedding we were all ready to celebrate. The ceremony happened at the Alpine Meadow in Park City Mountain Resort. One of the best wedding venue in Utah. We had to take the chair lift to get up there, quite an experience. The set up was great and the weather was on our side. I was amaze myself by the diversity of the crowd and the special performance Alec had lined up for Blake.

After everyone was done eating so I started playing some sing-a-long songs that got everyone (I mean everyone) on the floor singing with their arms around each other! The crowd was great and wanted to dance all night. The kind of people I love to DJ for. They were even screaming one more song after the last song. Such a great way to end a wedding celebration reception party.

I had such an amazing time playing for this group!  Thank you so much Alec and Blake. If you are looking for a Utah Wedding DJ, Contact me by Email or by Phone.

10 Questions to Ask Your Wedding DJ Before Signing that Contract

What better way to celebrate your special Day than by having everyone you know and love on the dance floor. Help! I’m Getting Married, “I need a Good DJ for my wedding” is what I hear from clients looking to book a DJ for the first time ever in their life. We all know how important it is to find the right entertainment for your wedding, which is why I am here to help you.

Great recommendations for wedding DJs – can be incredibly helpful for couples looking for wedding day entertainment that suits their style. To make sure you’ve found a wedding DJ that ticks all the boxes, here is a list of 10 questions you should ask a wedding DJ before signing that contract.

How long have you been a DJ and have you experience in DJing at weddings?

This is a really important question because a good wedding DJ is one that has experience DJing at weddings specifically. No two weddings are the same, but there are some significant differences between a wedding and a milestone birthday celebration.

Have you any testimonials to back this up?

Nothing beats word of mouth! Have a look at testimonials from real couples who had your wedding DJ at their wedding and you’ll know if you’ve got a winner.

Do you interact with the crowd and take requests? 

Some DJs don’t do this, so it’s worth asking if requests are allowed. Your wedding DJ will be there to entertain your guests and make sure they are having an incredible time, so make sure that’s a top priority.

Do you have your own equipment, sound, and lights?

Don’t make any assumptions about who will bring the sound equipment and lights. It’s always good to check with your wedding DJ if the fee you are paying includes the use of all the required equipment.

Are you covered with insurance? 

Most wedding DJs aren’t covered by insurance, but the professional ones should be!

If I book you, will it be you who turns up, or will you send someone else?

Finding the right wedding DJ who just understands you and your taste in music is really important. It’s definitely worth finding out if the person you are corresponding with is the one who will show up at your wedding.

Do you have a set list that you play?

It’s really important to have a wedding DJ who is able to read the crowd and adjust the set list, depending on who is on the dance floor and which songs are generating the most excitement from your guests. Being able to see a list of some of your wedding DJ’s most played songs will give you an idea of the style you can expect on your wedding day.

If you are playing after the band, when will you be ready to start?

Some DJs set up after the band is finished. This often leaves a very large gap of time where there is no music or entertainment taking place.

What happens if you can’t do my wedding? Do you have a backup plan?

The answer to this question should be one that gives you peace of mind. Knowing that no matter what happens, you will have a DJ at your wedding is comforting.

How do I confirm you, and do you need a deposit?

Knowing how to make your booking official is a very practical question, but it’s worth asking.

A Beautiful Backyard Wedding in Springville, Utah

Professional DJ

The Moment I met Ana and Brandon; I knew they were the couple I wanted to work for. They were full of energy and laidback. At our consultation meeting we became friends and were able to talk about their special day in detail and what exactly they were looking for from me. I couldn’t be happier to be the one they chose. We stayed in touch every other week to make sure we were always on the same page as the date got closer.

The day of the wedding we were all ready to celebrate. It was at a beautiful backyard Wedding. The set up was great and the weather was on our side. I was amaze myself by the diversity of the crowd and the other performance they had lined up. Specially the native Navajo Dance. The food was one of my favorite parts as well.

After Dinner the sun came down and the backyard light got turned on. After everyone was done eating so I started playing some sing-a-long songs that got everyone (I mean everyone) on the floor singing with their arms around each other! The crowd was great and wanted to dance all night. The kind of people I love to DJ for.

Our Bouquet Toss song was “ Single Lady – Beyonce” We had to do it a few times because Ana had someone specific in mind for it 😊

I had such an amazing time playing for this group!  Thank you so much Ana and Brandon!!
