Weddings

Let's get this party started!

Planning a once-in-a-lifetime event is a no easy task, and it's my goal to make the process as fun and stress-free as possible. I help couples have the wedding of their dreams by offering suggestions during the planning phase, setting a romantic tone during formalities, and packing the dance floor when it's time to cut loose. I'm not the diva DJ that has to be the center of attention -- YOU are the stars of the show. The best part of the job is getting to know awesome people and understanding their personalities to really tailor the vibe of their big day.

We're known as DJs, but there is so much more to it than just playing music. On wedding day, I work as a team with the photographer, videographer, caterers, the venue, and everyone else that has a hand in creating a successful event. It's so important to gain the trust of my couples because, at the end of the day, the DJ can make or break the party. There are no second chances! DJing is not only my passion, it's my full-time job.

It would truly be my honor to create the soundtrack for your big day!

"He is super responsive to questions, offers ideas or suggestions when you're stuck, and the one on one call helped us feel so prepared for the big day. He is so genuine and truly wants to make sure your day is special."

Packages & Investment

I'm a DJ, not a sales person. It's important to me to be transparent with my pricing without all the nickel & diming that some companies do. A lot of vendors seem secretive and will ask to "discuss your vision" before quoting you a price. I believe that my fees are reasonable based on my skill level, professionalism, and experience with weddings and events. Below are some packages I put together that reflect the needs of many of the couples I've worked with.

"Marriage is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and for many of our vendors, it seemed like the average 9-5 shift. Not for DJ Thomas. During our planning, DJ Thomas was EXTREMELY attentive to our concerns and requests... It can also be terrifying to completely rely on a DJ to play specific songs (and specific versions of those songs) during pivotal moments throughout the night (I have seen some DJ disasters in the past). Not with DJ Thomas. Our concerns were put at ease knowing that he was manning the stage. "

The Process

There are plenty of moving pieces and external factors that can be stressful while planning a wedding. With me as your DJ, you can relax and enjoy your party knowing that you have an experienced professional at the wheel. I'm accessible every step of the way to answer your questions and offer suggestions for planning an incredible party.

Planning

I provide all of my couples with access to an online planning system that makes preparing for the big day fun and easy. The portal has a planning form, timeline, and music request lists (and do not play list). The planning system can be accessed from your phone, tablet, or computer at any time up until the wedding. Another helpful feature is a top requested song list for each event throughout the night, including important dances, bridal party introductions, cake cutting, and top dance songs. My appointment scheduling system is always available and I'm more than happy to meet as many times as you like. Meet & greets and brainstorming sessions are my favorite! Around a month out from the wedding, I'll let you know it's time to setup a final meeting where we'll do a full run through of the day to identify any details we need to lock down. We can meet in person, on the phone, or video chat.

Ceremony

For the "I DOs", having crystal clear audio is guaranteed through top-of-the-line microphones and speakers. Some would consider the equipment that I use to be overkill, but it is so imperative to me to achieve remarkable audio for such an important event. Prelude, processional, and recessional music is fully customizable and played at the correct volume at the correct time. I provide clip-on or handheld microphones for officiants and readers, and gladly facilitate sound system hookups for musicians, singers, and videographers.

Cocktail hour

You'll be off taking pictures, but your guests can enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres while listening to music at a reasonable volume. The music is there to help create the atmosphere, but not be a focal point. It's important that guests can have a conversation without having to yell, and I'm very conscious of that. The music you select for this part of the night will set the tone for the rest of the evening, so choose wisely! I am always happy to offer suggestions that match the vibe you're looking for.

Reception

Let's party! For bridal party introductions, special dances, speeches, dancing, and everything in between, I work closely with the rest of the vendor team to ensure a smooth event. You can relax and enjoy your party while I execute the plan we created together. The dance party is, of course, my favorite part of the day. I constantly read the crowd to make certain that everyone has a great time.
