One of the biggest fallacies that I encounter as a professional wedding DJ is when people sometimes approach me and say to me "I bet you've got an easy job" or "I bet you've got a fun job". I can tell you with great confidence that it's one of the things in my life that bring me true joy. The joy of seeing all the preparation and all those consultations with brides and grooms about their music and coordination come to fruition. That being said, there is NOTHING easy about being a wedding DJ. The only way it could possibly be easy is if you cut corners and not do it the right way. Weddings are extremely stressful. The stress for me is really self-induced though. I tend to obsess about all the little details of your day so that I can be sure I am focused and can deliver the perfect performance that you have hired me for. The right songs needs to be played at the right time. There are NO breaks to be taken and you have to be on your toes and your feet (literally) for th entire duration of the wedding reception.
What exactly does it mean to hire a single operator DJ service for your Charleston wedding? This question was asked to me the other day by a website inquiry. Hiring a single operator DJ service greatly increases the chances that your wedding will be more stress-free and less worrisome because from the time you sign a contract til the time your limo leaves your venue, yoou work with ONE person in regards to the planning and creation of your playlist.
One of the biggest goals of your night is for everyone to have fun and to keep your dance floor nice and packed. Every time I sit down with a couple, their biggest concern is to keep everyone on their feet and dancing all night long. How do you ensure your guests are going to have fun and dance all night?
Zack Morris. Friends. Tickle Me Elmo. Clueless. Forest Gump. And so much more. The 90s. If you lived through them, you remember all the glitter all over your face and fluffy scrunchies worn by Britney herself. But don't forget beanie babies, Pokemon and the Macarena. Ouch! I know what you mean about that Macarena! Let's forget that song :) Actually, that's one of those songs that gets placed on the DO NOT PLAY LIST quite frequently. Music from the 90s is popping up all over, in commercials and in other areas of pop culture. AND in playlists for Charleston weddings.

Alright ladies and gentleman, I feel like the late great Kasey Kasem counting them down and not stopping until we get to Number 1.
Whitney & Trey were a really fun couple from Atlanta who chose the lovely backdrop of Middleton Place. They booked me back in January and actually came to Charleston and we met. One of the things I enjoy doing as a couple books me is get to know them. This can either be a "meet & greet" or email consultation. Either way, the true professional DJs in Charleston will want to get know you a little better as you would be putting your trust in them to entertain you and your guests.
