The Process - how this works
Contact me to check my availability for your date. Feel free to include as much detail as you want—how you two met, where you're having the wedding, your music tastes, etc.
ARRANGING AN INITIAL CONSULTATION
Once I have received your inquiry, I respond within a few hours. I will set up an in-person meeting with you over craft beer, and maybe tacos / pizza (I also f#¢&ing love California burritos)! If you're not in San Diego, or I am out-of-town, we can also arrange a video meeting on Skype or Google Hangouts. At this meeting, I will learn more about your music tastes, personalities, and overall wedding vision, and explain my services in detail. I will give you a contract to review, and I will reserve your event date in my calendar. I want to avoid any pressure tactics in booking me, while giving you enough time to shop around and be confident in your decision.
To confirm the booking, the contract is returned to me with a 50% deposit. Once I receive the signed contract, I will send out a fun wedding worksheet for you to complete. The worksheet is where you will fill out the important details about your wedding, and it also offers valuable insight into real wedding tips, venue layout, music ideas, and much more. I hope filling out the sheet is a fun part of your planning process. You will also receive a mini-podcast that goes over different aspects of your wedding to think about. You may submit your music requests through a gigantic online music library.
If necessary, I will conduct a walkthrough of the venue with you to go over layout, lighting, power, etc. This can be arranged up to 1 month prior to the event.
The completed worksheet is due three weeks before the event date. We sit down for a final meeting two weeks before the wedding to finalize the timeline and talk about your song selections. After we meet, I get in touch with the venue, caterer, planner and any other vendors to make sure we are all on the same page,
THE BIG DAY
The wedding date arrives - I show up to the venue at least two or three hours before your guests. Set up only takes me about an hour, but I want to stay ahead of schedule. The ceremony begins and the tears (of joy) stream. While you're out grabbing sunset photos, your guests schmooze and booze it up to a perfect soundtrack that fits your style and wedding perfectly. All announcements I make are done tastefully, and the transition from dinner to dancing is seamless. Your guests dance until the last song, and say it was the best party they've ever attended—it just happened to be your wedding!
