    Best DJ Ever!

    We couldn’t have found a better DJ for our wedding than Kris! We booked him two years out from our wedding date and he was awesome to work with every step of the way! We had an initial meeting with him at a nearby Starbucks shortly after contacting him. He’s got a great personality and sense of humor. From the minute you meet him, you get positive vibes! We didn’t even meet with anyone else; we booked him immediately. During that two year span, we ran into some unexpected financial trouble and needed to cut down on our wedding budget & even change venues. Kris was willing to work with us & let us change a few things/cut out a few services we originally had wanted, which he definitely did not have to do! He’s the only vendor we kept when changing venues because we really wanted to keep him! We even moved to California (military move) in between that time and needed to converse with Kris over the phone until the wedding. There was a 3 hour time difference, but he still made it a point to talk with us even though it may not have been convenient for him. Every time we contacted him, he replied back quickly and was able to answer all of our questions. My husband couldn’t care less what type of music was played at our wedding, but I’m very picky and admittedly dislike most current music. Kris was accommodating to that & even upped our number of allowable “Do Not Play” songs haha! The Vibo app is nice & Kris definitely utilizes it! It’s laid out easily & divides everything up into categories. It even provides recommendations for certain instances that you may have overlooked or can’t think of (cake cutting song, bridal party entrance music, etc.) I recommend making notes on specific songs if you want Kris to make a shout-out or want it played at a very specific time because he does read them! We had a brunch wedding & not a very lively crowd. There was only a few people actually dancing and they were the ones up most of the time. Kris really tried his best to get everyone more motivated to get on the floor & even tried multiple methods. One was ingenious and worked for a while - he got everyone to crowd together on the dance floor for a group picture & then tricked them into doing the YMCA. Unfortunately they were a super tough crowd and most everyone seated themselves after that song. My husband and I truly appreciated all of his attempts, though, and still enjoyed ourselves even though most of our guests were party poopers! It also almost felt like Kris was our maitre’d - he was basically running everything! He was certainly more organized than our actual maitre’d and even checked up on my husband and I multiple times. About two weeks before the wedding, we realized we could afford the motion wall monogram of our names & asked Kris if we could add it in. He made a mock up of it to show us what it would look like & we loved it! It looked even better in person & he even added in some cool effects that we were blown away by! It was completely worth the price 100%! We had a slight Disney theme to our wedding & Kris surprised my husband and I by adding the monorail spiel to the end of the very last song played. It was such a magical touch to the end of the reception & we even had multiple guests recognize it and smile! We cannot recommend Kris enough; he’s tremendously skilled & absolutely wonderful at what he does! We have no doubt we made the right choice & we wish we lived locally so we could use him again in the future for any other gatherings!

    Great experience

    Kris was great to work with. The app he made us use made it easy to plan our music from ceremony to reception. Everyone had a blast!

    Kris is an amazing DJ who knows exactly how to get the party started. His selection on music is consistently spot on. Not only does he get your guests moving, but he keeps them moving. I have had the pleasure of working with Kris on many occasions not just as a DJ but also with his photo booth. We got some amazing pictures every time we used By Design. I received a lot of feedback in regards to the great job he did for us. I am happy to recommend him any chance I get!
