WHERE TALENT + CREATIVITY + TECHNOLOGY =
BEST WEDDING, EVER, STARTS HERE.
I believe that no two weddings are alike. Your venue, your vision, and the vendors you team up with are all important decisions that require a well-thought-out approach to ensure everything comes together perfectly in the end.
From simple and elegant receptions to nightlife-inspired, all-night ragers, I want to help you create your perfect wedding reception.
Please review the process my clients follow below and the services I offer. If you feel a connection, please check my calendar to verify your wedding date is available. If it is, please schedule a time to meet virtually with me, so I can better understand your wedding and what you want to create. At the end of our time together, I will provide you with the perfect recommendation for your wedding’s entertainment.

WHEN IT CAME TO THE ACTUAL WEDDING, WOW. TONY ROCKED IT. I’VE ALSO NEVER HEARD SO MANY PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY LOVED THE DJ. HIS PLAYLIST WAS EXACTLY WHAT
WE HAD IN MIND.
YOU COULD TELL HE PUT SO MUCH THOUGHT AND EFFORT INTO OUR BIG DAY. OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DIDN’T WANT THE NIGHT TO END!

Five Months: Let's Get Started
Approximately five months before your wedding day, I’ll email you to get you started with my Entertainment Planning & Design process. You will have some homework over the next two months, but I promise that finding inspiration with my tried-and-true Presentation Ideas and completing my Planning Forms will be both easy and fun.
Oh, and the best part? It’s all done online in my exclusive Client Area.
Four Months: Site Visit
If you elect to do so, we will meet at your selected wedding reception venue for a site visit. Here, we will walk through floor plan ideas, discuss possible presentation ideas to consider, and discuss production ideas, such as venue-transforming lighting options, if you so desire.
Three Months: Entertainment Design
The wedding is three months away, and it is time to start planning how your ceremony and reception will be presented to your family and friends. We will meet virtually and meticulously review your wedding’s details as we write and compile your Entertainment & Production Script.
It’s more than just noting what song is playing and the name of who is involved during each formality; it’s about crafting a personalized presentation for each milestone moment that will be remembered for years to come.
Two Months: Production & Set Design Planning
What will you and your guests experience at your wedding in two months? Our Production & Set Design Planning meeting covers the presentation of my setup (from DJ furniture to dance floor lighting) and how we will best utilize any Event Enhancements you’ve selected.
By working together on the look of my setup and all production elements, we’ll create an entertainment presentation that perfectly complements your wedding’s vision, decor, and venue.
Creativity and imagination are strongly encouraged here; dream big and let the sky be the limit for your once-in-a-lifetime celebration!
One Month: Final Confirmation
We’re in the home stretch! With approximately one month until the big day, it is time to finely comb through the Entertainment & Production Script to ensure every detail has been accounted for. It is a brief phone call, but it serves as our dress rehearsal and final boost of confidence that your big day will be everything you’ve dreamed of.
Wedding Day: Let's Celebrate
It’s your wedding day! At this point, every detail has been accounted for, the Entertainment & Production Script is complete, and all production – including key songs, my Master of Ceremonies script, and Event Enhancements – is prepped. So relax, pop some champagne, and enjoy your celebration with your friends and family as the guests of honor.
Trust me – the day will be a blur from start to finish. But be rest assured – I will have your back the entire night. Now, create some amazing memories, have the time of your life, and live it up. Let’s celebrate!

TRAVEL & DESTINATION WEDDINGS
Planning a destination wedding? I’d love to help! I believe that the best wedding receptions – no matter where in the world they are hosted – must be designed for maximum comfort and enjoyment by one’s guests. In other words, no matter how far your guests have to travel, no matter how much time they have to take off from work, no matter what, at the end of the night – and for years to come – attending your destination wedding reception must 110% worth the time and expense.
Sure, you can take a chance with a local MC & DJ that your destination venue recommends. But I offer a few distinct advantages for couples looking to host the best destination wedding experience ever:
Speaks your native language.
Understands your vision and can accommodate both American and local customs into your wedding experience.
Works and communicates directly with your vendor team.
Can accommodate and understand your musical preferences (especially for weddings hosted internationally).
Advocates for you, protecting the investments you are making for your celebration.
Has experience as a professional traveling wedding MC & DJ.
Travel & Destination Wedding Services Include:
CEREMONY & RECEPTION
My signature Ceremony & Reception services, custom-tailored to fit your destination venue, wedding vision, and style.
CEREMONY DRESS REHEARSAL
I’ll lead your ceremony dress rehearsal at your request, including coaching wedding party members on how to look their best come ceremony time.
WELCOME DINNER HOST & MUSIC
At your request, I will gladly host and provide music for your welcome dinner.
Expect my signature style for introducing rehearsal speakers and a great, upbeat playlist customized for your venue’s vibe and setting.
RENT SOUND & LIGHTING EQUIPMENT
As the owner of an audio/visual rental company, I’ll source and secure the reservation of DJ equipment from a local, reputable rental company.
In the unlikely case that one cannot be sourced, we’ll ship the equipment in.
I will coordinate and arrange for my ground transportation from the airport to the venue, and back to the airport.
AIRFARE & BAGGAGE FEES
I will coordinate my airfare to and from your destination wedding locale.
Due to the nature of my schedule, I will book and arrange for my hotel accommodation.
Note: National weddings require three-day, two-night stays. International weddings require five-day, four-night stays.
Home Airport: Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)
Preferred Airline Partner: Alaska Airlines or Delta Airlines
Preferred Hotel Partner: Marriott
MEAL PER DIEM
Due to my in-season diet (Keto Carnivore), I will arrange for my meals, and per diem rates per day will fluctuate depending on your destination wedding location.
If the scope of production requires it, I will arrange for the travel accommodations of one of my production crew members to assist in the execution of your celebration.
TONY MADE OUR WEDDING THE BEST NIGHT OF OUR LIVES. HAVING A SMALL WEDDING IN PALM DESERT, I WORRIED ABOUT HAVING AN EMPTY DANCE FLOOR AND NO FLOW. THAT WASN’T THE CASE AT ALL. EVERY SINGLE GUEST WAS OUT DANCING ALL NIGHT AND WE STILL GET COMPLIMENTS FROM OUR GUESTS TWO AND A HALF YEARS LATER ON HOW AWESOME HE WAS. BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER MYSELF, TONY IS THE ONLY DJ I WOULD EVER RECOMMEND. HE HAS A
GIFT FOR MUSIC
AND PEOPLE AND I AM BLESSED TO KNOW HIM AND HIS TALENT. I HAVE MET SO MANY DJS OVER MY CAREER AND THERE IS NO ONE LIKE TONY. BY FAR THE BEST!
