INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Our style really depends on the type of wedding! We are able to adapt our style to what our Brides & Grooms are looking for!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
We put no limits on our clients as to what music they would live or want songs they would like to request.
What is your usual attire?
We are alway dressed professional. This could mean a tuxedo for an upscale event or a more casual look for a laid back event. On average we are dressed in formal dress clothes, but we will wear whatever you desire.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Not at all. It is our responsibility to provide the music, therefore we ensure we have all of the music we need for your event.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We have three DJs on staff, and we work closely with many more.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We have a two hour minimum for our events. Our average wedding reception normally lasts 4-5 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely - We can meet in your home, your event site, or wherever is most comfortable to you!
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We have experience with some ethnic events, but when a client is better suited for a different DJ... we will happily refer the client to another DJ that is better for them.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, in fact we know from our own personal experience that for our own wedding the do-not-play list was going to be VERY important. Therefore, we have in our wedding planner that we provide to our brides & grooms, a space to put any songs the client does not wish to have played.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Absolutely!! If a disc jockey does not use professional sound equipment, you will know it. The sound will just not sound right!
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We have a variety of options that you can select from, including disco ball, lighting, up-lighting, bubbles or fog machines, and more. Plus you pay for only those options which you select.
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 normally set up at least an hour in advance of your event. We ask for a table, but if one is not provided, we carry a table with us.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Not really. We ask that we be given enough space to hold our equipment and us comfortably, but we will work with the space provided.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We do not use a sign or banner at any wedding or special event. We think that "advertising" one's business at a clients event is tacky. We would rather do such a great job at your event that your guests come to us for a business card or ask you who did the Disc Jockey services for your event.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We normally emcee our receptions. We do not talk before/after every song. We only speak when it is important to do so. (I.e. Announcements, Special events, etc.) Your guests didn't come to hear us talk!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We have a variety of methods to entertain and interact with your guests.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not require a meal break or a meal. We normally do not have time to eat, so you are not required and we do not ask that you provide us with a meal.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
We don't take breaks. If we should have the need to leave our table, music will always be pre-arranged before we leave.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have never missed a wedding, but we do have DJs available should an emergency arise.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No. We only perform one wedding and/or event per day.
What is your overtime rate?
Our overtime rate is determined by the package that you choose. It will be plainly stated in your contract.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do not charge for travel services, unless an overnight stay is required.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require a 25% non-refundable retainer of the total balance due with a signed contract to reserve our services.

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Presbyterian, Evangelical
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Suit & Tie is standard, but we can dress up or go casual depending on what the client prefers.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely!
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
We do.
How long are your ceremonies?
Our average ceremony lasts 30 minutes long.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes.

Janice was great. She handled not only the dj for the reception, but also the ceremony music. We didn't have a actual coordinator person, so she stepped in and handled that part also. Great job

Janice was absolutely amazing and a perfect fit for our wedding!!! She was great at answering all of my questions and just listening to me vent when I needed too (even though she didn't have to) She went above and beyond and kept my reception flowing nicely. Everyone danced and had a great time all night. We didn't feel rushed at all even though we got a little bit of a late start because of the ceremony. She was at the reception waiting on us and told us no rush at all. She even took my handwritten messy play list :). I can't thank you enough Janice my reception was perfect, thank you so much for being apart of it!

Dustin was very detailed about the music we wanted for our wedding and reception. He let us pick all of our music and did a fantastic job of keeping tiings moving in order at the reception. The guests all enjoyed his energy and his ability to get everyone up, dancing and having a great time! We couldn't be happier with the way things went on our special day!
We absolutely recommend him for any event that you are planning!
Thank You Dustin, from the bottom of our hearts!

Our wedding could not have been more flawless and amazing! It was the most beautiful, STRESS FREE (didn't even know that was possible) and fun weekend ever. Every single vendor we used went above and beyond any expectations. Billy and Janice from Your Dream Events were our Dj, Wedding Planner and Officiant... And with that much work they handled it flawlessly! Never did I ever picture being so relaxed on my wedding day, I found myself looking for things to do to help but there was nothing because they did everything. I can't thank them enough and I can't wait to find an excuse to use them again for something!

Your Dream Event really made our wedding great! We had a family member and his friends planned to be our band and a couple of months before the wedding the family member informed us that they could not afford to come down for our wedding. At that point we had some unforeseen expenses and didn't think we could afford a DJ, band, or anything else. Two or three weeks before our wedding I posted on Facebook asking my friends and family for song suggestions as I had unwillingly decided that I would just use my Ipod for music. A friend of mine knows Billy and Janice and put me in contact with Janice. That was probably the best thing that could have happened to us, Janice and Billy were able to help us out tremendously close to the wedding, we literally met on the Fourth of July and our wedding was the 8th! They were very friendly and helpful, had great suggestions and were able to incorporate our different tastes in music very easily. I was extremely happy with Janice and Billy, they arrived at the event early and they jumped right in in trying to get everything and everybody ready to go. Janice even helped my into my dress and were able to incorporate my mother and grandmother into the procession since our two year old twins fell asleep minutes before the ceremony. They very subtly came and asked if we were ready to go one thing to another and were great with our kids, which is very important to me. Everybody had a great time at our wedding and Janice and Billy made the day go off smoothly and nearly stress free! I would highly recommend them to my friends, family, and strangers that are in need of a DJ for any event, not just weddings!!
