So much more than music

Your friends arrived. The vows were exchanged. The kiss was beautiful.

But what will your guests remember most about your wedding day? It’s not the double-decker cake or the flower arrangements. In the end, your guests will remember whether or not they had fun. We coordinate your celebration so the memories last a lifetime—for you and your guests.

We take the time to truly uncover your thoughts and feelings about the reception. Rather than assign you a random DJ, the same person who guides you through the entire planning process will emcee your event. This makes it easier to turn your dream of the perfect day into reality.

Imperial DJ Entertainment is like your own wedding planner for the reception. We will coordinate with the photographer and party house to ensure the details do not overwhelm you and your event runs flawlessly.

It’s the little touches that set Imperial DJ apart from the rest. If you want a stunning reception, why settle for average entertainment?
