• Create a romantic, upbeat ambience based on the newlywed couple’s favorite music preferences for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner reception and dancing

• Set up professional sound support and music equipment for the reception, including a wireless microphone for toasts and speeches during dinner, for the officiant and for any ceremony readings or vows

• Provide handheld microphones for toasts and speeches during dinner

what is the role of a wedding dj?

• • • • •

• MC announcements and introductions throughout the day such as presenting the wedding party, introducing the first dance and announcing the cake cutting ceremony

• Set up classy, impressive dance floor lighting at the reception

• Help coordinate live presentations such as a slideshow, bouquet toss or garter toss

• Work with the couple’s wedding planning and other wedding vendors, to help ensure that the cake won’t be cut or the first dance won’t start until the photographer and videographer are ready to go. It’s all about teamwork! 


WE ENRICH YOUR ENTIRE WEDDING WITH MUSIC, NOT JUST THE FIRST DANCE.

Between the intimate vows you share during your wedding ceremony, to your first dance as husband and wife, every moment is elevated with curated sound. Our high quality sound systems and broadcast-quality wireless microphones produce sound that is crisp and clear. Our expertly crafted music playlists culminate the best mood for the day.

Build excitement from the moment guests arrive all the way through the reception to the last dance of the night. End the night on a high note with a grand send off held to the tune of your favorite song!  

1. Inspire an experience.

The right music sets the tone for your wedding and will facilitate the flow in energy throughout your wedding day. You’ll love the memories made from a night of singing along with your favorite music and dancing with your new spouse, close friends and cherished family members.

2. Encourage dancing and long-lasting memories.

Coordinate announcements and introductions throughout the day with a wedding DJ and MC who is professional, informative and unobtrusive. Less is more and we pride ourselves on letting you and the music have all of the attention as we MC and DJ your wedding.

3. Organize the special moments of the day with professional MCing.

A professional wedding DJ will work with your wedding planner and wedding vendors to help draft a timeline for the day that leaves plenty of time for dancing, with a DJ who knows how to keep the momentum going.

4. Assist your wedding planner and efficiently help coordinate the timeline for the day.

"We hired Cassie and DJ Dan as our DJs for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with our decisions. Cassie was the BEST MC and brought the perfect fun energy to the evening, while DJ Dan mixed up the perfect playlist throughout the whole event. We also used their Photo Booth, which was super high quality and my guests had the best time. If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding or event in the Los Gatos area, Los Gatos DJ Co look no further!"

the process

• • • • •

01.

Book Your Date

After the contract is signed and deposit payment is made, your wedding date will be reserved. We’ll work with you and your wedding planner to prepare for the big day, from the timeline to the MC announcements. 

02.

Make a List of Your Favorite Songs

As your wedding approaches, we encourage our couples to use a note taking app (like the one built into your phone) or a Spotify playlist to keep track of your favorite music. As you go about your day, perhaps listening to music for a quick run or a commute to work, jot down the songs you might want to hear at your wedding.

03.

Select Your Final Choices

About a month before your wedding, sit down, grab your beloved and a bottle of wine, and turn up the music. Narrow down your selections to about 20-50 of your favorite songs and artists — not just dance songs, but music you listen to in the car or at concerts. After making your final selections, send them off to your DJ 2-4 weeks prior to the big day to confirm your music preferences. You can even narrow it down further by providing a “do not play” list.

04.

Your DJ Will Create a Master List & Timeline

This is where our expertise comes into place. We’ll combine your favorite music with a blend of complementary artists and songs that perfectly fit into your wedding day — from cocktail hour music to dinner music and the first dance. Let us know at any point if changes are made to your schedule.

Dance & Celebrate

On your special day, you can relax knowing that all of your favorite music requests have been heard and taken care of. Your wedding is yours to enjoy. As your Bay Area wedding DJ, we’ll take care of the vibe and MC announcements. We’ll arrive 1-2 hours before guests and complete a sound check. If you have any questions throughout the day, just ask!

THE FAQs

• • • • •

01.

Why choose LOS GATOS DJ as your wedding DJ/MC?

Weddings are what we are known for. As professional wedding DJs, event planners and music enthusiasts, we bring heart and soul to each and every wedding. Providing music for weddings does not feel like work for us because we love what we do. From the special vows you share during your ceremony, to your first dance together as a newly married couple, we will make every moment memorable and lots of fun! It is truly a unique, customized music experience for you and your guests. 

02.

What can we expect from our wedding DJ and MC?

As professional wedding DJs, we blend in with the guests, dress appropriately and, of course, establish inviting atmospheres with the best music and lighting. We are more than happy to make announcements and introductions throughout the event. We won't ad lib with inappropriate commentary or get in the way of the ambience we are creating.

03.

What does a wedding DJ need to know before the wedding?

Our detailed process ensures that we have everything we need to DJ your wedding, and that you know what to expect. We’ll discuss everything from your music preferences, the schedule for your wedding, whether or not you’d like song requests at the reception and more.

04.

What kind of music do you play? Can a wedding DJ play any song? Can we make requests? 

Yes! Definitely. We love music and have plenty of it. If there’s a specific song you’d like to hear, please let us know. If you are having a difficult time coming up with songs, there’s no need to worry! We will curate a personalized music playlist for the day based on your suggestions and your other music favorites. We typically play radio-edited versions of songs and generally avoid playing explicit versions of songs (unless, of course, when requested). 

05.

How do you make a good wedding playlist?

This is our specialty! The best wedding playlist consists of songs and artists that the wedding couple has chosen specifically, in addition to a fun mix of other similar artists, both current and classic, in similar styles and genres. The music played at weddings should reflect the couple’s personalities, styles and music preferences.

06.

What kind of equipment do you bring?

We use only pro-audio DJ equipment for every type of event. A typical DJ setup includes dual speakers, CD controllers or turntables, a wireless microphone, music player and DJ mixer.

07.

Should I have a DJ for a small wedding?

Absolutely! Wedding DJs are effective for any and all sized events, including intimate weddings. With smaller groups, a wedding DJ builds a joyful atmosphere and upbeat mood which encourages your guests to make their way to the dance floor. Having a professional DJ at your wedding adds an energy and excitement that may otherwise be missing with such a small crowd.
