Melissa & Brock were an incredibly beautiful couple coming to Charleston from the Midwest; across the river in Illinois near Saint Louis. We had been talking since about February when they booked me, and after my first phone conversation with Melissa, I could tell she was excited about her and Brock coming down to the Charleston area (Folly Beach) for their wedding and to start their new life together. As the months passed, I began reviewing their playlist selections and I could tell that they were a couple very much into their musical choices, and I was really looking forward to playing it all for them. The weather had been iffy in the days leading up to their wedding day on June 22. Even though it's been said many many many times that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck to come, I'm fairly certain that nothing was going to take the smile off of Melissa's and Brock's face. One of the things that I like to think separates me from the other DJ services is my strong desire to meet a bride and groom before their wedding day. Perhaps this can be done through a Skype or Facetime early on, but for destination couples, I always try to coordinate a quick meet and greet sometime in the days leading up to their wedding day. This is especially the case with destination couples, but I believe that meeting a DJ should be one of the things you should plan on doing when you pull into town and begin setting up your schedule in the days leading up to your wedding day. From the beginning, it's something that I have always felt should be done before a wedding and to this date, I have met every single couple to date prior to their wedding.
