Honored Occasions has been servicing the wedding industry for over 7 years but each of our Wedding DJ professionals having done a minimum of 750 weddings. We have been honored to help realize the vision of over 2000 bride and grooms. Our approach to weddings is simple, we assist our couples in creating the experience they are looking for. We understand that this is a once in a lifetime day and we are here to help our brides with music, entertainment, photo booths and lighting.

We can be a single source provider for the elegant decor uplighting, centerpiece pinspotting and dance floor ambiance packages. We have a lighting studio where you can experience all the options live as well as thousands of images of weddings we have done. Most likely we will be able to show you an image of wedding we have done at your specific wedding venue.

Photo booths are an exciting addition for your affair and a fun keepsake for your guests to take with them to remember the celebration. If you book either a DJ or lighting package we will take an additional $200 off the photo booth.

We also are happy to introduce our “Signature Series” which includes our truly unique Signature First Dance, Signature Cocktail Hour and Signature Father Daughter Dane. Make sure you ask about it when you come in.


We invite you to come in and meet with us, one-on-one for a consultation and see if we are the correct fit for your celebration. We understand that choosing the right DJ is important to making sure your wedding is perfect. That’s why you always meet with your DJ from the very beginning and there is never any pressure to book on the spot.

Come in and see why so many wedding couples have chosen us for their music, photo booths and lighting. Read less

Describe your DJ style:
We are polished, professional and fun DJ's that can be your spokesperson for the event. We are here to assist you in planning of every aspect of your wedding reception and will be your wedding event coordinator for the reception.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Just the opposite, we want as much input from you and your guests (if you like) about your musical tastes and preferences.
What is your usual attire?
Tuxedo or Suit (your decision)
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, we want you to trust that we will provide the music for every event
How many other DJs do you work with?
There are (4) of us in the company, each a principal partner in making sure your event runs flawlessly.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Traditionally, most wedding receptions are 4-5 hours in length but we can make exceptions if needed.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
You will meet your DJ from the very beginning as we want to make sure you are comfortable with the company as well as the performer.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We understand the cultural needs of our clients and though we may not speak the language we know the culture of the following weddings: Filipino, Chinese, Korean, Latin, and Middle Eastern
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes... We like to look at the Do-not play list as much as our Play list.
Do you bring your own equipment?
We own 100% of our top quality gear.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We are a single source provider for decorative uplighting, centerpiece pinspoting, personalized monograms, dance floor ambiance packages
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
We prefer to arrive one and half hours to the start of the event.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No more than a 6' table
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Never.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We can be your spokesperson or MC through every aspect of the wedding.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Music is the key to get your crowd going but sometimes and interactive activity is what kicks starts them. We are not the "cheesy DJ's" as we like to say we are lactose intolerant :)
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We never take breaks from a reception because that moves us away from the action.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
We never take breaks.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
This might be the most important question you ask your DJ. We always keep one of our staff members on call in case of an emergency. They have access to equipment and music just in case.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Never, we have a policy of only doing (1) event a day.
What is your overtime rate?
Depends on the package you book but we always encourage our clients to wait to add the time at the reception so they don't pay for time they may not use. There never is a difference in cost if they pre-book or wait until the evening to decide.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Only if the event is more than a 75 miles from Orange County
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
1/3 of the total price of the package is required to retain our service.

Steve was absolutely fantastic at our wedding! While planning the wedding, my mother and I had been disagreeing about whether to have a DJ or a live band. We ended up going the DJ direction with Honored Ocassions and were incredibly happy with the results. Steve was an excellent announcer and brought lots of energy and excitement when my bridal party and my groom and I made our grand entrance. During dinner he kept everything very classy and elegant. Later on, after dinner, he had the arduous task of combining American/Latin/European music to keep everyone both young and old happy! I am happy to say he nailed it and kept the energy flowing the whole night. Steve showed an incredible amount of professionalism, but at the same time, looked like he was having a good time too!

We had Steve DJ and emcee our July 3rd wedding. He was not just a great DJ, choosing the most appropriate music for the moment and the crowd, but an engaging emcee, making smooth transitions amongst the reception events. We absolutely loved how connected he was to our guests and how much he paid attention to us and our needs. He worked closely with the live band we hired to play our ceremony and first dance and was nothing but professional when interacting with all of our vendors. My husband and I danced until the very last song- truly a testament to his amazing skill level!

My husband and I were extremely happy and pleased that we went with Honored Occasions for our wedding. Steve was our DJ/MC and he was phenomenal. From the moment we met with him we were pleased. He was absolutely great! He was friendly, excited for us, and very helpful. We could tell he wanted to make sure our day was special, and that it reflected us. I highly recommend this company.

Steve, the owner, was absolutely the best choice for us. He used our music list preferences, he kept our audience very entertained and kept the evening flowing. He followed our specific requests to the letter. Our ceremony music was perfectly timed, and everything was the right volume. The music for our reception was beautiful and not obnoxiously loud like in some receptions. He worked with our other vendors seamlessly. He was perfect for all ages and seems to really take cues from what is happening with the ebb and flow of events. We were so pleased with this vendor choice and you will be too! People were on the dance floor until the last dance at our Sunday wedding!

My son was getting married and I wanted him and his wife to have the most awesome wedding ever. We hired Justin to be our DJ, and weeks later I am still hearing from people that this was the best wedding they had ever been to! Justin had people on the dance floor the whole entire time the reception was going. My daughter had a wedding five years ago in this same venue and we wanted my son's to be just as incredible. His turned out better, only because Justin was so way better than the DJ we had at my daughter's wedding. The DJ can make or break a wedding. We were recently at one and hardly anyone danced the whole evening. Even those people said our wedding was the best they had been too. A DJ can make or break your event. Justin definitely made ours the best!!! It is so awesome to hear from people that your wedding was the best they had ever been to!!

Honored Occasions came highly recommended from our wedding planner Katie (Intertwined Events) and we're so glad we listened to her! Steve was such a pleasure to work with and he did a fantastic job with our music (ceremony and reception) and lighting. He paid attention to our music requests and was a fantastic DJ! We had an amazing dance party at the reception and he was great about keeping the energy up! We didn't want a DJ who was too heavy on the mic and he respected our request. The lighting was very tasteful and professional in the ballroom and we were very happy with how it all looked.

Steve also did a great job coordinating with the sound technician from Terranea to make sure we were properly set up with two mics for our two officiants during the ceremony. The sound quality was very important to us and he did a great job making sure everyone could hear everything.

He was very pleasant and professional to work with and we highly recommend Honored Occasions!

Steve and Angela were perfect in every way. I could not have chosen a better company for our wedding. We got so many compliments on the music and the room looked incredible decked out in subtle lighting with our initials on the dance floor. They were flexible with our schedule as we had to move a bunch of things around but they always kept us in the loop. Best choice we made.
