Thinking Out Loud

More Than Words


“The Mood & Energy We Were Looking For”

DJ Sean even contacted members of our wedding party to find out their music interests. He tailored the music, lighting, and extra features to capture and sustain the mood and energy we were looking for.

– William M.

“He Cared About Our Wedding”

The one thing that stood out with Sean compared to all other vendors is that he cared about our wedding almost as much as my wife and I did.

– George M.

Sean says … things to consider when booking a DJ

Along with availability, your budget, and the style of DJ/MC you desire, here are some questions to keep in mind when selecting entertainment for your wedding or event.

Definitely! I work diligently with you to understand what music fits your personality and the feel you want for your wedding.
I’m multiracial and married into a different culture as well, so I understand what you’re going through. This is an area of expertise and I promise to make your event memorable and stress-free.
I’m not just a DJ – I’m also a musician and sound nerd. From decibels to speaker projections, count on me to work behind the scenes to make sure the sound is just right for you and your guests.
