With wedding season set to begin in and around the Seattle area, waSOUND owner and DJ, Danny Goldfarb, would like to share the most important reasons to hire a quality professional DJ for the reception.

Spring has been sprung for a while, which means we are heading into the thick of wedding season. Planning for the wedding reception requires vision and a well ordered attention to detail. Many elements must come together seamlessly to make the special day memorable for all the right reasons. That is why Danny Goldfarb, Seattle wedding DJ and owner of waSOUND, would like to remind couples that hiring a professional DJ can make all the difference.

Goldfarb, a seasoned professional with over 8 years of experience as a Seattle wedding DJ, knows how important his job is, but many couples do not.

More than just setting up a sound system and playing music, “we [are able to] handle any situation and won’t let anything get in the way between us and your perfect night”, says Goldfarb.

Here are the 5 best reasons to hire a DJ for your wedding reception:

Welcoming Atmosphere
DJs take on the lead role of the host, or MC, providing a positive and festive vibe for the entire reception. This is why getting to know your DJ is vital. DJs that don’t interview well usually won’t be able to flip a charm switch suddenly on the day of the reception.

Control the Pace
A good DJ can help control the pace of the wedding, shifting from classy formal moments to raucous festive celebration. It is important that the DJ understands his role as host and knows how to read the guests, properly shifting gears on the fly.

Coordinating/Announcing Events
At many larger wedding receptions, there is a good deal of commotion and confusion. A professional DJ can help inform the guests what event will be taking place next. That way Aunt Ida won’t miss the newlyweds first dance, or the cutting of the cake.

Yes, Music Too
Playing music is the primary job of a DJ, but a seasoned professional can avert several problems. Appropriately mixing different styles of music from different cultures can be tricky. While the couple chooses what music will be played, it is the DJ that finds the best way to please a diverse audience.

Lighting, Photos and Video
Lighting is an important aspect of a quality dance floor. Some DJs offer other services like photos and videos to record the festivities for posterity. Other DJs offer original services like photo booths, complete with props and onsite printing, as well as scrapbook stations that provide a way to memorialize unforgettable moments throughout the night.
