Describe yourself as a vendor – What do you do for our couples?


Full-service DJ and event planner servicing the Eastern Shore and beyond

20+ years experience started in the DC Metro area & moved to the Eastern Shore to start my own DJ business. Since then I’ve gained tons of experience through clubs, bars, weekday drive-time & morning on-air radio hosting, community events, corporate parties, and especially weddings.

What was your inspiration to start a wedding business?


I started by helping friends with their weddings, and it blossomed into a career I enjoy. I realize we are making lifetime memories, and thrive in the notion that real-time decisions and performances can make a break a party. I love what I do!

Do you have tips for couples who are planning a wedding?


Don’t be afraid to ask questions to your vendors. We all strive to create the perfect wedding day, and even if your ideas seem difficult logistically or from a technical standpoint, our job is to make it happen!

What feedback do you hear most from couples about you and your services?
Couples really appreciate the consultative approach I take to the entirety of the wedding process. I can only plan your day when I have a clear picture of what you want. I’m also very comfortable in front of a crowd and enjoy making big cheers happen for the couple themselves and their wedding party!
