TESTIMONIALS FROM YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

June 29th, 2019 Mohican Gardens:  Kept everyone dancing the whole night!  We highly recommend Jeff and his services!  We love to dance and were very excited for this portion of our wedding day! Jeff did not disappoint as our DJ!!  We got married on the hottest day in June 2019 which ended up being the hottest June on record.  You couldn’t tell if people were sweating because it was hot or because they were having so much fun dancing.  We hired Jeff to provide music for our cocktail hour and reception.  He arrive on site early to get setup for two locations including our cocktail hour in a barn and then for the reception in a greenhouse.  He did an awesome job transitioning between the cocktail hour and reception and planned for the right amount of time to make our wedding party entrances smooth.  He was extremely professional and great at being an MC for entrances and important announcements throughout the evening.  Prior to the wedding, Jeff was an excellent communicator and made himself available for in person meetings to talk through details.  He accepted a long list of preferred songs and followed the genres we had planned throughout the evening.  He did a smart twist on the Anniversary Dance to get all of the guests on the dance floor and start off the dancing for the night!  He also has other fun special dance suggestions that were different, and our guests loved!  We had an absolute blast at our reception because of Jeff!  He kept our dance floor full all night long with a great variety of songs that made all ages happy!  Jen and Mack

September 28th, 2019 Harvest Hills Farm: Great experience.  Jeff was amazing to work with before the wedding and also on our wedding day.  He made planning the music for everything super easy with the planning tools on his website.  He did an amazing job on our wedding day.  He interacted with our guests and if he had questions, he didn’t hesitate and was an all around energetic DJ to have.  We would use Millennium Mobile DJ again for future events.  Tanasha and Ben

October 12th, 2019 Scioto Grove Metro Park: What an amazing human being!  Jeff was the DJ for our crisp October afternoon wedding and he was outstanding!  He made our wedding perfect and when I told him we like a little bit of everything for our music choices he did just that and gave us a little bit of everything.  We danced until we couldn’t dance anymore.  Communication with him was the best and he was very attentive.  When my husband and I first met with him, he explained everything so thoroughly and he answered all my questions before I could even ask him.  I would recommend him to anybody that has asked me about the DJ for our wedding!  Savannah and Jeffrey

October 26th, 2019 The Mercantile:  I was extremely picky when it came to DJ’s after hearing so many bad ones at past weddings.  Jeff was amazing to work with through the whole process and great with giving suggestions.  Our wedding day was absolutely perfect thanks to Jeff playing every song we wanted to hear and more!  Our guests were dancing the entire night and still rave about him.  I couldn’t recommend him more!  Sierra and Troy

State Of The Wedding Industry

The Unplugged Ceremony

Extending into 2020, couples continue to request that their guests turn off their cellular devices during their ceremony. They do not want to look at the backs of phones and would rather see the smiling faces of their friends and family members.  The wedding pro hired by the couple will document the ceremony.

The Top 5 Trends in Wedding Venues

  1. Image & aesthetics. 48% of couples rank scenery and backdrop as a top must have.

  2. Willingness to spend more to customize. Spend from 2018-2019 increased by $1,500 as couples show less concern to work within a budget.

  3. Drinks & Spirits. Premium & full-service bars are in demand while cash bars are on the decline with the rise of signature cocktails which are all the rage.

  4. Venues that offer both indoor and outdoor space. Semi-casual weddings are increasingly preferred over traditional black tie affairs.

  5. Seeing is believing. Couples want to see pictures of recent weddings in their chosen location.

Volume etiquette at a wedding: How loud is too loud?


The volume of the music during a wedding should fluctuate with the ebb and flow of events throughout the celebration.  For example, during cocktail hour and dinner, volume should be set at a conversational level.  If guests are observed to be leaning in close to converse or distancing themselves from the source of sound to hold a conversation, the volume of the music is too loud.  On the flip side, when the energy on the dance floor peaks, the decibel level naturally rises to harness that energy.  Even during dancing, guests may still perceive the music as too loud.  In an effort to create a pleasing experience on the dance floor, it is imperative to pay close attention to guest responses to volume levels and adjust as necessary.  A responsible, attentive and respectful DJ is more likely to please the masses.

With the arrival of 2019, couples are embracing the idea of personalizing their wedding day by offering Themed Food & Drink Displays for their guests.

A quality DJ’s worth is measured by value. Value to the consumer and the DJ’s overall value to the success of your celebration. If the DJ’s concentration is only music, lighting and gear, this has a very different price point (value) than a highly involved DJ/Master of Ceremonies who possesses years of experience, works through a process, follows a detailed and comprehensive agenda, offers personalized event planning and is fully invested to deliver a unique and memorable celebration beyond the basics.

Although price is a factor, it should never be the sole criterion when booking a DJ. A DJ who loves their craft has the mindset of an artist and the beauty of the art is in the eye of the beholder.

 

Trending into 2020 is the “After Party” or extended celebration after the reception ends.  Some couples want to WOW their guests late into the evening or early morning hours and a post-reception party gets the job done.  The “After Party” usually occurs at an alternate location and during warm weather months, a rooftop party is as cool as it gets.  Not pictured here, Juniper in Columbus, Ohio is a great option.
