A wedding dj should be simple enough to find, right?

You would think this is the one of the easiest parts of the wedding planning and I am here to tell you, friend, it is not!

As a San Diego Wedding Photographer that has been in the business for a decade I know first hand how a wedding DJ can make or break your reception.

Wedding Vibe says " Your DJ is the most important part of your wedding reception. ... Your DJ will start playing background music before your guests arrive. They will have your bridal party introduction music cued up and ready to go, and have your introduction list within easy reach so that it is ready to go for your grand entry."

We could not agree more.

So below you are going to find the list of our favorite local DJ's that will keep the party going all night long and hopefully get all the names right!

As bride Erica told "The knot" "Earl and his team are fantastic!! My husband and I used them for our wedding. We had an amazing night, as did our guests!

Bride Asten described on wedding wire, "Eric did a great job being our DJ/MC at our wedding!! He was fun, personable, and professional! With having an older age group for our wedding guests, our biggest worry was that we wouldn’t have many people on the dance floor, but Eric made sure the dance floor was packed the whole night!! We are so happy with the music choices and everything that he did to make our wedding fun!"

High Marks, guys!

1024 productions- www.1024productions.com

Known for their wild antics as well as a playlist that keeps asses on the dancefloor, 1024 Productions takes its place among our list of amazing DJs!

1024 Productions is a wedding DJ and entertainment company based out of Temecula, California. Since 2014, their enthusiastic and experienced DJs have been dedicated to bringing each couple’s vision to life for their wedding day. Known for their professionalism and attention to detail, the team will provide a seamless experience so that you can focus on making memories with your loved ones. Bride Illiana says, " Mike (1024 Productions) was absolutely amazing, from the minute I reached out to him via email he always responded back within minutes, regardless of what day or time it was. He was always available to discuss all the important details, and the online planning portal he has is suuuuper helpful and made everything run smoothly. We also booked the Photo Booth with him and my guests had such a great time, even the quality of the pictures were amazing and he sends a link with all of the pictures after within a few days which was so fun to look at. Ours was an open Photo Booth with a bunch of hilarious props which made it even funner. As the DJ, he was outstanding, in the portal I picked all my songs but let him know I was leaving it open for him to play what he felt best fit the party and the mood and he did not disappoint. My whole party had the best time dancing with his music selections. I highly recommend him as a DJ/Photobooth vendor. SO SO SO SO happy with his service.

These guys are part crazy and part professional and that is the mix you want to keep the party goin!

Like we said before, finding a DJ can be harder than you think. They truly are one of the most important parts of your day and for sure the makers or breakers of your reception.

We hope that you grab and book one of these guys to ensure that you have not only a special wedding day, but an incredible wedding night!

Well, the first part of the night ;)
