More Than a DJ, a Master of Ceremonies!
With the increasing ease of technology at your finger tips it's understandable why some may opt to use an iPod or tablet for their special day, but there are some things you should consider before doing so.
With Felice Entertainment you're not just getting a DJ, but so much more, a master of ceremonies. Services we offer include DJ, violinist, videographer, photographer, lighting packages, and bar-tending services.
We'll meet with you prior to your event to discuss your contract and wedding packet; including ceremony and reception preferences, playlists and do not play lists, bridal party ordering, pronunciation of names, special event music and staging, and any special instructions that you may have. Your day, your way, no exceptions.
Depending on the level of care your wedding needs we spend on average of 12 - 30 hours prior to the rehearsal preparing for your auspicious occasion. We'll collect and organize any music needed, we also offer a detailed itinerary of the day's events for your approval. Top notch organization helps keeps things on schedule. From the moment the DJ arrives to the very last cord being wrapped and packed, everything is factored in; we take the guess work out of the equation. The catering staff gets a copy so they know when the champagne needs to be poured, the photographer gets one so they can sneak away to get some candid shots with the happy couple, and possibly most important, mom and dad get one so they know what to expect and when.
For added peace of mind, we offer the option of attending your rehearsal. We'll introduce ourselves to the officiant or minster, the wedding party, and mom and dad. We'll do a quick run down of the grand entrance ordering, mic handling, toasts, and any special events where communication is key.
Punctuality is where it all starts! We'll arrive to your venue 2-3 hours prior to start time, we even bring a change of clothes and cosmetic supplies for post set-up, there's nothing worse than a sweaty, tattered, dirty dj.
Our equipment is among the best in the business, we care about delivering a great product and appearance. Our gear is clean, sounds and looks great, and features multiple ways of running sound. And there are no messy wires hanging about all over either; we're clever about how we hide and disguise our cords; which are always secured behind poles with velcro or hidden among shrubberies.
Etiquette is everything, "at this time" is a an unnecessary, antiquated, and highly overused phrase that dj's who don't know any better use. We've had years of public speaking experience and know how to conduct ourselves professionally; we'll never be chewing gum while making announcements on the microphone.
If something does go wrong we have the experience to know how to deal with it in a timely, efficient, and professional manner; we've been doing weddings for a decade so there's isn't a lot we haven't seen or experienced first hand.
Last minute music requests are no problem, with more than 20,000 songs in our library we're sure to be able to accommodate, we've got something for everyone.
On rare occasion a DJ may have to cancel last minute; we've never had it happen with us, but we have known other DJ's where a family member has passed. It is for this reason that we will provide you with a professional back up DJ should there be a true emergency.
These are just a few things we feel are important to consider when deciding on whether to book a DJ; not all of them are the same. We want to see to it that you're in good hands, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day the way it was meant to be. You don't get a do over on your wedding, so why not let us do it for you right.
