Today we are excited to introduce you to the guys behind Event Team Entertainment! The first time I met these guys I knew they would be able to keep any wedding alive and fun, and they have proved me right at every wedding we have worked together since! If you are looking for a team to make your day be an amazing celebration that you will never forget, this is the team to do so!! As you can tell by the pictures, they are a fun group of guys and their clients have the best time on the dance floor! Please sit back, relax, and get to know a little more about the awesome gentleman of Event Team Entertainment!
Champagne: Why do you feel having a good DJ is so important?
Event Team: The DJ and Master of Ceremonies is the liaison between you and your guests. Our goal is to keep the guests informed of what/when/where things are happening. As the link between you and your guests the DJ should have the following qualities: professional, warm, inviting, polished and an all-around good representation of the couple and their families.

Champagne: How do you get people involved in the event?
Event Team: Through planning with the couple we learn their style and what they want for their wedding. The best way we have found to get people involved is by first inviting them to be involved. We don’t like “forced” entertainment so we try and create elements and interaction points that fit naturally with the celebration.

Champagne: How can I know you’re not going to dress up in costumes or dance on the table? Do you have video of you in action?
Event Team: Meet with us so we can learn more about each other! Take notice in our initial consultation of how we dress, act, mannerisms, etc….We do have videos we can share to help showcase our presence at the event. I would also encourage you to reach out to personal and professional references and ask them to share about your experiences with our service.

Champagne: What is your favorite part about your job?
Event Team: We enjoy connecting with the audience, being the voice for the couple. We love hearing the audience reactions to each special moment. The very best part of this job is seeing the couple have an amazing time enjoying their wedding!!

Champagne: To you, what is key to creating a successful event?
Event Team: The key to a successful event is proper planning and execution. We want to learn as much about our couple as we can so we can properly deliver the experience they have dreamed about. We feel that proper execution, pacing and flow will keep the guests around to enjoy the entire celebration.

Champagne: What’s your dream vacation destination and why?
Event Team: We love any warm, tropical destination where you can “see-through” the water. The sun is shining, soft sand under our feet with the love our life by our side. A place to unwind and refresh from the frenzy of our season.
Champagne: Do you believe having a wedding coordinator is a luxury or essential?
Event Team: We believe wedding coordinator is a must. The DJ will help guide special moments, parent dances, etc.. The coordinator however has a very special roll. They are the cohesion the glue; if you will, between the vendors, the couple, the venue and any key players involved with the celebration. Without a coordinator the family will have to take on stresses, worries and concerns that shouldn’t be part of their special day. A great coordinator is priceless and is an essential ingredient to a successful event.

Champagne: What do you do, when you’re not doing, what you do?
Event Team: We enjoying spending time at the beach, park, Portland at night. We love Disneyland, Great Wolf Lodge and any type of fun space we can explore with our families and friends. We love to jump on a four wheeler when possible. We love great movies and spending time with the quality people in our lives.

Champagne: Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
Event Team: You have one wedding with no do-over’s, no re-takes and no second chances. So align yourself with amazing vendors that share your vision, passion and love for your big day. Take the time to interview and hire the best vendors. Try to look ahead and see what you could possibly regret such as not having a Coordinator, Videographer, Photo Booth, DJ/Entertainment Director, Etc.. Invest in the very best and you will reap the rewards of those decisions many years after your celebration!!
