Click: INSTANT PRICE QUOTE - With Paradox there is no worry about a cheesy DJ stealing your spotlight. We can MC the flow of events and provide a modern-style service with the perfect mix of professionalism and talent. Will your DJ sound, look and feel like every other lame or cheesey wedding DJ you’ve seen?... NOT WITH PARADOX!!

The Paradox approach is to offer an experienced and talented roster of professional, reputable working DJ's with a variety of different styles, tastes and skill sets. Paradox DJs hold positions at the top level wedding venues, radio stations (Live 95.5, Z-100, Jammin' 107.5), sports arenas (Trailblazers / Timbers) and entertainment destinations in Portland, OR and SW Washington. "As turntable-mix DJs, we will actually blend each song together, meaning the music literally never stops once the party kicks off. This removes the uncomfortable silence or “dead-air” between each song, and is one of the most effective ways to keep your cocktail hour fresh and your dance floor packed!!

We worked with Justin for our wedding. He came HIGHLY recommended from friends and other vendors alike, and we were lucky enough to have him reserved (but had to do so way ahead of time!). He certainly lived up to the billing. He was very responsive over emails and Skype before the wedding, and delivered a very upbeat and positive night for the reception. People came to us multiple times through the night about how awesome he was!! He is a great DJ and very fun party emcee that appropriately balances his interaction with the crowd without being too obtrusive. He was awesome!!! Thanks Justin!!!

Justin was the best DJ we could have asked for! We really wanted a DJ that would not only guide everyone through the evening, but also one that could mix music! Everyone absolutely loved the music and did not stop dancing until we had to turn the lights on to get them to leave! :)

DJ Paradox is incredible! From the first email to the last minute of our wedding both Justin and Jennifer were prompt, professional and accommodating. They made sure that emails were answered within a day and that we had every song and detail that we wanted. Justin was fun and professional and we loved getting to meet him via Skype as we had a destination wedding. He was flexible with our beach ceremony and provided great sound and music that could still be heard over the wind and the waves. Our reception was a blast! Justin took care of every detail, I never once had to worry about what we were doing next, or making sure people were where they needed to be. Justin read our crowd and had the majority of our 85 people dancing at all times. People are STILL raving about the dance party and multiple people have said, "I've never been to a wedding where every single person was on the dance floor at one time." Justin definitely made our night and we can't thank him enough!

Paradox was SO amazing to work with. They listened to everything we wanted and were very open to our specifics. For example, for my walk down the aisle I wanted the music start at 00:40 into the track, Justin was able to do this smoothly, with no issues. For the father/daughter dance we wanted a specific version of a popular song, again no issues there. He was great at getting the crowd on their feet and keeping everyone involved. We had a very particular list of DO NOT PLAYS, which included many songs that are very popular right now. Justin did a great job of avoiding these songs. He also did a great job of mixing in our Must Plays that were very obscure. We had issues with food being ready on time and Justin did a great job of keeping guests distracted and dancing while that was figured out (the food service was a different vendor completely and was not involved with Paradox at all). We would absolutely recommend Justin to anyone looking for a DJ.
There were two small issues that did occur: the grand exit music was played while all the guests were leaving to line up for us to exit, rather than when we were exiting which was a bit of a bummer. The first dance song was incorrect for about 40 seconds. Then the correct song was played, and Justin played it off well, but it was the wrong version of the song. The version we chose was slow, it was a hidden track that we had gone over in person to be sure it was clear where the song was. Instead the regular, sort of rock n' roll upbeat version was played. I think it ended up working out for the best, as it was easier to just groove along to that. It was just a very different vibe that we weren't expecting. Jennifer was seriously the best bartender we could have asked for. She helped us craft and create signature cocktails and served them beautifully! She helped me figure out all the rentals we needed, cups, barware, etc. She put up with my crazy overbearing relatives and the bar ran perfectly all night. She is fantastic!

We absolutely LOVED working with Paradox productions, specifically DJ O.G. One! You're reading this review and one thing you need to know about me is that I LOVE to dance, so choosing a top notch DJ was essential for my big day. As a consumer and bride-to-be, there are several reasons why I would choose Paradox all over again. First of all, they are extremely timely and responsive. Many vendors in the wedding industry lag on responses and can hold up your timeline, thus adding to your stress level and making the planning process difficult - NOT Paradox. Jen is always on top of her emails and is extremely accommodating when it comes to planning and coordination. Secondly, the seamless online planning platform was very helpful - it was easy to navigate and very comprehensive. Here you can submit your timeline, special requests, various music lists and make payments. Everything is SO EASY. Finally, I need to give major credit to DJ O.G. One who kept our dance floor crazy fun and was a great at reading the crowd. Prior to the big day, we met with O.G. One and he asked all the right questions about our wants and needs, and more importantly, he actively listened to our responses. He is the official DJ for the Portland Trail Blazers and was absolutely incredible at our reception. We received endless compliments on the music, the energy and the vibe of our reception and that is owed to DJ O.G. One and Paradox.

DJ Paradox (Justin) was a highlight of our wedding! Working with him from the beginning was easy and enjoyable. From meeting with him the first time to speaking with him at the end of the wedding, he was professional and I knew that his first priority was making sure everyone was having a great time. My husband and I made a recommended song list and Justin played every song at the appropriate time during our wedding. And, he was honest about the songs that would "clear his dance floor" during our last meeting, so we were able to remove those ahead of time. I told him two singers who I love and he made sure to sprinkle in their songs throughout the night - I loved it!!

During the wedding, he kept everyone on the dance floor with his song choice and great mixes, he really understands how to read a crowd. He also ensured all the guests knew when we were cutting the cake, having the first dance, bouquet toss, etc.

Justin was a great addition to our wedding and it wouldn't have been the same without him. The best part of working with him - he made sure the music throughout the evening was a representation of us. He was incredible!

We LOVED DJ Paradox. We have been to several weddings over the last few years and our DJ was by far the most fantastic!! We added up-lighting and a monogram and it looked incredible. We are 100% happy with our choice to go with this company. Out of all of our vendors, this is the one we were the most excited about. When the wedding was over our guests raved about our dj. This is a must pick if you want to WOW.
