Tell us a little about your company
Rhythm of Love is a brand new DJ company I’ve just launched! After deciding to branch out on my own, I wanted to come up with a name/brand that was definitely different, and after being referred to The Routine Creative, together we created the brand and I landed on the name. As a DJ company who specializes in weddings, I wanted the name to try and reflect that! I’m so excited to officially launch and to get to share this with everyone!
How did you get started in this business?
I always knew I wanted to do weddings and I actually had a college friend approach me and ask me to do their wedding. I happily agreed and offered to do it for free if they would give me the opportunity. They were the first of our group of friends to get married and it was so much fun getting to see everyone so happy! After that, I knew I found a niche I wanted to pursue.
What’s your favorite wedding story?
There are so many but I’ll stick to one of my favorite best man speeches! The best man was telling a story of how the groom broke both his arms skiing after he heard they had just started dating and how lucky he was to have his now wife, a nurse, to help. He was telling the story of the phone call he got to hear the news, and his first thought he said…”How was he going to wipe?” I’ve never heard a room laugh so hard!
Why do you like working with weddings?
I get invited to share an incredibly intimate moment with the couples, their families, and friends! It means so much to me to share these moments and emotions with them. I absolutely love every wedding I’m a part of and after the formality of the day, it’s equally rewarding to create a dance party that has every single person on the dance floor! I wouldn’t trade my job for anything!
From a vendor’s perspective, what is the one best piece of advice you can offer to engaged couples?
Choose a team of wedding professionals! This advice comes not only from the vendor perspective but as a guest as well. You want a team of professionals who do this every weekend and who know how to handle any issues that may arise. Having a team of wedding pros, also pros who work together regularly will make sure your day is perfect and stress-free!
How far in advance should couples book your services?
I would recommend booking your DJ’s 6-12 months in advance. While last minute bookings are always welcome, planning far ahead ensure’s fewer headaches the closer you get to your wedding day!
What inspires you the most / where do you find inspiration?
Seeing people happy! The most rewarding part of my job is seeing people thoroughly enjoying the music I’m playing. Getting someone on the dance floor with their favorite song or picking the perfect song for that moment is the best!
What do you like to do when you are away from work?
I love spending time with family and friends. I like to travel, and I spend a lot of time at the beach, specifically the Outer Banks, and can’t wait for warmer weather!
What would we be surprised to learn about you?
I’m a private person and I actually don’t like being the center of attention. I was an I.T. guy at a local physical therapy company for 5 years while I was DJing, and didn’t tell anyone at work until the last year. Everyone at work thought I was quiet and reserved…the opposite of a DJ!
