You Want To Have The Best Wedding Reception...Ever

You know how a wedding can be just plain blah? Or the DJ is totally annoying? We change that in a big way. You know couples have never hired a wedding dj before, might fear making the wrong choice, don’t want a cheesy DJ, and get so overloaded they’re just freaking out?! We change that in a big way.


“We wanted to make our wedding to stand out. And our reception did just that. Not because we had a chicken dinner, cause everybody does that. Not because we had bridesmaids, everyone has those. But because we had Chicago Wedding DJs.” Colleen


This is your wedding day. This historic once in a lifetime day deserves to have everything you've imagined...and more! From the moment you said "I do!" to the moment you choose your wedding gown, everything matters. We know how important this is to you and we can help make the Magic happen.


“Chicago Wedding DJs exceeded our expectations and made sure our day was exactly what we wanted. They helped to make the planning process easy and we were confident that our day would run so smoothly. Peter pays close attention to details and his expertise in the field was evident.

We had numerous compliments from our guests about his professionalism as well as the music choices. We were pleased to see that the dance floor stayed full the entire night; we attribute our guests’ enjoyment to Peter’s diligence and knowledge of his profession. We could not have asked for a better person for the job. We highly recommend Chicago Wedding DJs for any event!.” Kathy

Could not have had a better DJ/MC. You can't go wrong with Peter!

When my wife and I were looking for a wedding DJ, we wanted someone who wouldn’t just get up there and play a canned playlist: we wanted someone who could read a room, connect with guests, and work with us to tailor our day to something that embraced and celebrated the music and people we cared about. To say that Peter delivered is an understatement.

From the moment we started working together, Peter made sure that our hopes, preferences, and concerns were both heard and acted upon. His attention to this made sure that not only my wife and I felt honored and celebrated, but every guest there did. The environment Peter impeccable crafted was unforgettable, and he went above and beyond to get us there.

A perfect example is Peter’s response to news that my wife’s grandparents would not be able to make the wedding because they would not be able to fly. Peter could have simply adjusted the line up for our entrances and been done with the matter. However, he personally reached out to me with an idea to have my wife’s grandmother call him and leave a voicemail message to play as a toast to us. That message is one of the things we treasure most from our wedding, and it was an unsolicited idea that Peter created knowing us and what we cared about.

Getting back to more general expectations that Peter met and exceeded, I repeatedly heard from guests that the music choice was the best they’d heard at any wedding. My wife and I agree. How Peter was able to create a playlist so seamlessly within that moment, given all of our competing preferences and age ranges in attendance is beyond me: the only answer can be complete mastery of his craft.

Peter’s ability to handle his client’s skillfully shouldn’t go unmentioned either. Scheduling between my wife and me can get difficult given the demands of our jobs, but Peter somehow found a way to comfortably accommodate us while keeping us on task with any deliverables and decisions. This certainly made our lives easier and allowed us to focus on celebrating one another and those we love.

Thanks, Peter!

Professional, Personalized, and SUCH A GOOD TIME!

Peter was so much fun to work with from the moment we hired him (nearly a year out) to our wedding day itself. He organizes multiple planning calls where he gets to know you, what you want, your tastes, etc. The Chicago Wedding DJs website is great too—we started picking songs we wanted and "do not plays" well in advance, with freedom to keep searching and changing until just a couple weeks before. There are all kinds of extra special touches you can choose with Peter: first dance voice overs, games, centerpiece giveaway raffles, twists on the clinking glasses tradition, glow stick exit tunnels, personalized introductions for our wedding party (check this with him, though, we would have done these a bit differently if we'd remembered to ask), lights for the dance floor, and so much more. He's truly an emcee. We had a guest say that of nearly 10 weddings he's been to, this was the most fun.

We could not be happier with Peter. He brought the party to the wedding and it was a great one :)

You don't need advice from me--just book with them. WE LOVED PETER!

Peter was AMAZING--words cannot even express how MUCH we loved him!!! He was so professional and SO thorough. He kept me (the bride) on the dance floor the entire night and there wasn't a single moment when the dance floor was empty. He knew what songs to play and when as well as when to cut a song if it wasn't working. He graciously worked with my three brothers who contacted him because they had a surprise video they wanted to show during dinner. He was so flexible (even as things didn't run at the right time during the night) and he was punctual. Our family and friends have been RAVING about Peter ever since the wedding! We are just SO thankful and iMPRESSED.

Worked a fun and fabulous Bar Mitzvah with Global Heart! The music was the perfect balance to keep the adults on the floor and the kids entertained. Very easy to work with!
