Professional Wedding DJ|MC
Music Express DJ has many goals when it comes to your day! We provide music to achieve a style that goes beyond the idea that a DJ is there to just play music. Our staff will assume the role of “Event Director”, keeping your timeline on track and your guests dancing! As your DJ|MC we take care of the traditional introductions and formalities (announcements, toasts, cake cutting & bouquet and garter tosses). We work to ensure your reception is a smashing success, managing “behind the scene” details so you can celebrate with family & friends. Music Express DJ will provide music to suit your special day, and your style, accommodating requests and coordinating any special dances!

Professional Wedding Photography & Videography
Signature Photo & Video is a group of talented photographers and videographers dedicated to providing priceless memories of your special day! Signature Photo captures your memories in high quality digital format, this lets you relive your special day for years to come. Our experienced staff of photographers will capture all the images of your day, combining traditional and photojournalistic style, creating a fun and stress-free day. We use an internet –based proofing system that you can access through a password protected web site. This also will allow you, your family, and friends to view your special day. They can also purchase prints online.
You can never reduce the importance of photographers to relive your special day. But photographs don’t talk, laugh, dance, share stories, express emotions, exchange vows, and all the lasting remembrances that a professionally produced video can provide. Our contemporary, cinematic style is more storytelling than documentary. We shoot your event using a unobtrusive style, preferring to record the story as it unfolds, looking for special moments that capture the elegance and emotion of your special day. Your memories are digitally preserved on DVD for quality and long-lasting durability with an attractive hard cover case for protection. Your DVD will have a fully interactive menu with chapter points at each high point so you can view, visit all or visit your favorite parts of your day!
Combining our DJ service with Photography and /or Videography can save you hundreds of dollars. Eliminating the reason to run all over the Chicagoland area when you can take advantage of our combo packages, you save time and money by combining all the elements of your special day with one company. Using our team of Disc Jockeys, Photographers & Videographers ensure better communications & coordination creating a well planned and orchestrated reception.

On-Line Planning Materials
As our client, you will have access to our extensive on-line planning materials. This includes our on-line music request system, planning forms and timelines.

Personal Consultation
Music Express DJ | Signature Photo & Video will meet with you in advance to discuss your preferences and guide you through our comprehensive reception planning process. Preferably, this meeting will be done in person with the Bride & Groom. If you cannot meet with us in person, we can do this over the phone. This is the time to tell your DJ what you would like or not like at your reception. If needed, your DJ will also help to provide tips and ideas to help you. Finally, you and your DJ will put together a general itinerary of events for the evening. You are not limited to just one meeting with your DJ. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible with the pre-planning of your wedding reception.

Premium Sound System
State of the art, professional sound equipment selected specifically for the venue and size of your event. Not every couple wants the music so loud that you cannot socialize in the room. We will work with you to find out what you would want from your reception and work to ensure that all guests can enjoy themselves.

Music
Music Express DJ’s digital music library consists of over 15,000 songs. One nice thing is that we have our entire song database on-line for you to look over and make requests in advance. We also can take requests the night of your event. If we do not have the important songs such as your first dance or parents dances, we will purchase them at no charge to you.

Montage Production (add on)
Music Express will create a video montage using photos provided by the bride & groom for the First Dance. During the Parents Dance we focus on pictures of the Bride & Groom with their families. You will also receive DVD copies of the montage.

Wedding Ceremony Sound (Add on)
We can provide a sound system for the ceremony, along with a lapel microphone for the officiate performing the ceremony so that all guests can hear clearly. We can also provide a wireless handheld microphone for a soloist or reading being done. Our ceremony packages also include music played during the ceremony, guest arrival, seating and dismissal of guests.

Music Express DJ | Signature Photo & Video can meet with you personally and discuss your reception; this is a no strings attached consultation. We can create a custom package that fits your dreams for your special day! Call us today @ 877.892.2532 Read less

Russ kept people on the dance floor all night. The only thing that bothered me was when the photographer asked him to announce group pictures, he didn't want to do it because it would cause people to leave the dance floor. However, he did make the announcements.

I really think our DJ and music was the best part of our wedding (besides the actual marriage of course ;))

He was responsive, played absolutely anything we wanted and was responsive to our guests as well. There were people dancing from the beginning to end.

The best part was their online music library where you can pick what you want them to play for certain, what you would like them to play, and what CANNOT be played. It was so helpful and it was available to us a few months before our wedding so whenever we thought of something that'd be fun to dance to, we'd add it whenever.

So, yes, this DJ service is awesome!
