YOU have a story. So take this opportunity to share your love story with the people who love you most. After all, that's what your wedding celebration is for. Don't just decide to buy a "Wedding in a box." There is so much more to creating a once in a lifetime event. So let's chat....

Ideal Entertainment is a professional Disc Jockey and Entertainment company that prides itself on tailoring events to your specific needs. No two weddings are exactly the same, nor should they be. Your special day should be a reflection of you and a celebration of the life you will live together.

Tim has been a significant part of hundreds of events and thrives on being the glue that holds the entire event together. The photographer, the caterer, and the florist all have their part, but often times your DJ/Emcee is the piece that keeps the event orchestrated smoothly. The entertainment will have the most effect, either positive or netagive on your event.

He strives to meet with every couple prior to booking to ensure the very best fit for your event. Being involved throughout the entire planning process is imperative to grasp an understanding of you, and how your event can be customized to your personality. It is imperative that you find the right DJ/Emcee to match your energy level, interact with your guests, and provide you with your Ideal Entertainment. To set up your FREE consultation, call or email today to inquire about your date. Read less

Tim was one of our favorite vendors to work with. He totally understood the vibe we were going for within the first ten minutes of meeting him. We had several meetings with him before the wedding, and we loved going to them! We left feeling relaxed and like everything was under control (hard feeling to come by while planning a wedding!). We even had a few last minute requests (Hubby decided he wanted a disco ball) and Tim managed to get it done! At our wedding he did a phenomenal job of MC'ing and keeping the party going. His lighting and sound quality were astounding. Tim even helped us book our limo transportation for after the wedding. If I ever have another reason to hire a DJ, Tim will be my go to man. You will not regret hiring him!

From the first moment we met Tim, we knew he was going to be our DJ and Master of Ceremonies. Aside from his brilliant portfolio and notable works from previous weddings, Tim truly has a knack for effectively getting to the core of any pair of individuals in front of him in order to refine a certain vision, and customize the music to fit any theme. The processes he went through for us showcased a tremendous work ethic, thoughtful and lengthy consideration, and maximal organization that my wife and I never saw coming.

Tim met up with us on several occasions over coffee and was always right there for us, even for things beyond his job description. (Or so we thought)

-"How is the planning going?"

-"How are you feeling?"

-"Music aside, is there anything I can take off your plate right now?"

We have never felt so nurtured!

This type of treatment is beyond "entertainment," this is royal service met with an authentic smile.

We have no words for how epic and amazing our wedding was, people are STILL talking about it, and at least 90% of the credit goes to Tim and Ideal entertainment.

From the website features that allow you to create your own playlist, to mapping out the venue outside on a rainy wedding day to create an incredible experience for your guests, Tim will go beyond your expectations to deliver the greatest wedding day you could ever have dreamed up.

What a great DJ/ Emcee. We could not have been more happy with Ideal Entertainment. Tim is personable, professional and easy to work with. I had seen his work at a wedding I was at previously and already knew we were in good hands. He kept the night running smoothly and everything just flowed beautifully. As with any wedding there are always a few unexpected things that pop up and Tim was prepared. I got to relax and enjoy myself and not worry about details. We loved his sense of humor and his ability to keep the guests entertained and dancing. Tim did much more than play music. He created a fun atmosphere that made the night so special. Also, I highly recommend the up lighting We had a beautiful venue in Snohomish but the up lighting it turned a nice room into a stunning room. From the planning process to the last details Tim defiantly knows what he's doing and when he says "I've got ya covered" he really does!

We had a great time at our wedding with Tim as our DJ. Guests were dancing all night and the music selection was great. The shoe game was a hit too. We had DeLille Wine Cellars as our venue and Tim knew exactly how to set up for the ceremony and reception. Tim also did a tremendous job being organized and keeping us on schedule.

Tim of Ideal Entertainment is truly a top-notch DJ, one of the best in Seattle. He is extremely professional while also being able to relate to you personally. Tim gave us great advice about how to choose songs and what types of songs work best for which parts of the wedding. He also helped us to feel calm and enjoy the moment on the big day. He made our wedding extremely fun. In fact, it was the best party we have ever experienced. Tim helped our wedding run so smoothly, and yet he was also able to do it all from the background without drawing attention to himself. Tim was an integral part of our wedding being an absolutely perfect, incredible day.

Tim is awesome at what he does and Jake and I knew from the first time we met him, that he was our MC/DJ. He genuinely wants to get to know you as a couple so he can get the feel of how things should go. I really liked being able to log onto the Ideal website and pick and choose what I want or don't want. Then be able to go back if I change my mind. He kept the party going and knows how to handle people or situations that may arise and can adjust as needed. He is really there for the bride and groom and gives them their ideal wedding day. He can really transform a room too!

We just can't say enough positive things about Tim. We had 2 months of wedding preparations, so we were really tight on time. After meeting with 3 DJ’s, we were starting to lose hope. When we met Tim though, it was very clear that he was of a much higher caliber and we very quickly trusted him. Tim knew what he was talking about, he listened to what we wanted and suggested stuff without forcing them on us. During the planning process, he was always available and promptly responsive. We asked him to play Arabic music and he put a lot of preparation and effort to get the nuances of the arabic rhythms and dances. During the night he was able to mix between Arabic and English very well and like a someone who has a lot of experience doing it! At the wedding, he kept track of everything, reminding us of next steps as needed and clearing with us any potential deviations from the initial plan. Really, we had no complaints! I had many worries the morning of my wedding, but the DJ wasn't one! He just made me feel comfortable that he had it under control. Tim was not just the DJ, but instead was the go to person before the dancing part started, and not to mention that he did a great job with the music throughout the evening. All I remember is that we danced all night long.

Tim offered top drawer, first class service to us from the first moment we met him. He was easy to work with, extremely professional, flexible with scheduling, very well dressed and such a happy pleasant man! Tim was the glue that made our wedding a "seamless" event and the most fun day of our lives! He functioned as our wedding coordinator, and gave us great assurance that any problem that came up on our wedding day, he would handle. We would never even know there had been a problem, he would take care of it! He absolutely delivered that, plus more!! He moved our whole wedding event along so smoothly, we even had one guest specifically remark that she had never been to a wedding that "flowed" so wonderfully! She remarked that so many other weddings seem to be chopped into segments, and ours just went seamlessly from one event to the next! This was because of Tim Humphrey!! He was indeed the most amazing, professional I've ever worked with!! We attribute the entire "success" of our wedding to Tim's professional talent! We were overjoyed with him and his work! To anyone looking to hire a DJ or Coordinator for an event of any kind in the Seattle/Tacoma, Washington area, our heartiest endorsement goes to Tim, and we know you won't be disappointed!

Tim did our wedding in June and I can't say enough good things about him! He meet with us before the wedding to make sure we had all of the songs we wanted picked out and gave us great suggestions for different songs to play at different times (the cake cutting, during dinner, etc.). Tim made sure he knew what parts of the songs we wanted to hear and had everything cued-up perfectly! He was a fantastic MC, who kept the wedding flowing and all of the guests complimented on how well the evening went. He told us about the Shoe Game, which I highly recommend doing as I couldn't stop hearing about from all of the guests after the wedding. Tim made sure that we were well taken care of as well. When we sat down for dinner he asked if he could get us anything and when we asked for different drinks he made sure that we got them. He checked in with us to make sure he knew where people were who were going to do toasts and he checked in with us throughout the night to see if we wanted to stop or keep the partying going. We ended up having the party go a lot later then we expected because there were SO many people still dancing and enjoying themselves. We got lots of compliments about how great the music was. I would hire TIm again in a second!
