Planning a Wedding in Chicago? Someone You Should Know
Wedding planning can be a very difficult process and we know that many couples are now beginning the processes of planning their wedding post the holidays. The BusBank provides wedding transportation for hundreds of weddings each year, but we know that transportation is just a small part of the day. Other important items for a wedding include choosing a venue, deciding on the food and last but not least the music.
Today, we wanted to introduce you to a Chicago Based Business called Chicago Wedding by Global Heart Entertainment. If you are planning on a wedding in Chicago, they may be a good fit for you.
How long have you been doing this and how did you become a Wedding DJ and MC?
I began my dj career managing the Chicago office of North America’s largest DJ service. Chicago Weddings by Global Heart Entertainment was started in 2000. I started out actually working for a large production company in Chicago. We did a lot of great events and when the opportunity came up to move from behind the scenes to being a part of the party I grabbed it.
Tell me about yourself.
I’ve always been someone that makes things happen. I know how fast opportunities can slip by, so I’m really good at identifying, capturing, and helping to create unique, once-in-a-lifetime moments. I’m a good manager for a DJ service because I work well with people.
Tell me about your business.
It’s wedding based. It’s built around the understanding that our clients are having this incredible experience and we want to help them share it with the world.
How did ChicagoWeddingDJs.com begin?
ChicagoWeddingDJs.com got its start from me knowing that clients deserve more and were sometimes not getting it from other places in the market.
I found other people in the DJ industry that believed in a better way, and believed in continually finding better ways to make great connection experiences for our clients.
From that came this incredible ride of new discovery with our loyal clients.
What type of events make up most of your business?
With ChicagoWeddingDJs it’s all about weddings.
Who do you work with exactly?
Brides and groom couples are #1.
What really sets you apart from other Wedding DJ’s?
Have you ever been to a wedding reception that was just plain blah, or the entertainment was downright annoying?
And you know how wedding couples looking for reception entertainment have never done this before, are afraid they might make the wrong choice, don’t want a cheesy DJ, and get so overwhelmed they’re just freaking out?
Well, I give them creative options that create a more clear, structured, pleasurable and enjoyable plan.
What happens is amazing. They have a fun planning experience that few other DJ services can afford or have the willingness to provide.
Are your services and products affordable for Wedding couples to buy and learn from?
All our initial information, the video and audio, costs nothing. It’s our gift to help make the wedding entertainment planning world a better place.
According to the American Disc Jockey Association disc jockey rates vary based on talent, experience, emcee ability, service, coordination, equipment needed, music knowledge, mixing ability and personality. Rates for the DJ industry vary greatly, ranging from $350.00 to over $5,000.00 with an average of $1,200.00 for a 4 hour booking.
The best price is not always the best deal, especially if you are planning a wedding.
Who do you work best with? What is expected of your clients?
I work best with a bride and groom who are completely excited about creating an event that they, their family and friends will be talking about for a long time to come.
I expect these couples know they want to plan a great celebration, but just don’t know where to begin or exactly how to handle the details.
At the same time they want the process to be enjoyable around their busy schedule.
Who is NOT going to benefit from working with you?
A couple planning their wedding who are interested in only music.
Because my service is More Than Just Good Music, more polish than the Average Wedding DJ, someone looking at only music will not be getting the most out of my Signature service which is creating a fun & memorable experience for their family, friends and guests.
What’s the first step when people are interested in your service?
