On WeddingWire since 2011

I'm a DJ who understands the way music makes good moments great.

I work with you in order to create playlists of thoughtfully selected songs to help celebrate every facet of your new marriage. I do a ton of preparation to be sure I'm creating the right mood for you and the people you care enough to invite to your wedding.

I was born in a record store and educated on the radio. During my 20+ years in New York, I was a resident DJ at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square before finding out how fun it is to play weddings. Now I'm splitting my time between the tri-state area/Hudson Valey and the Reno/Tahoe area.

The Most Wonderful DJ

We can’t say enough good things about working with Julie. She crafted an inspired wedding playlist that kept everyone dancing all night, but also incorporated songs that catered to our eclectic tastes. We’re not a very dance-y crowd so I was nervous about keeping everyone entertained, but Julie did such a beautiful job reading the room and adjusting the music as necessary. She even picked up on an inside joke with our friends and surprised everyone with THE PERFECT SONG! We would absolutely look forward to another party with DJ Julie!

Highly Recommend!

Julie was incredible. She made sure to play a wide range of music given the parameters we provided, but also played some surprises that were a big hit. So many guests raved about her after the wedding. We couldn't be more pleased! Thank you, Julie! Our party was fun and memorable because of you.

A wonderful experience! Thank you Julie!

Julie, Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding the success that it was! We received so much positive feedback about what an amazing DJ (and human) you are. We feel so lucky that its worked out for you to work with us! In particular: the skill with which you engage in the creative process of selecting music from seating music to ceremony to dance floor; your way of hearing our thoughts and then contributing with yours in a way that made the final experience better than we were even imagining it could be; and your uncanny intuition, creativity and enthusiasm mixing for our multicultural (German, Israeli, American) family! This experience definitely put “DJ” into a whole other class that I didn’t know existed.

DJ Julie is a a friend,mentor, and excellent DJ. She is the kind of DJ who after guiding you through the process of planning the music and completely exceeding your highest expectations with her performance, you will remember her fondly as a friend that helped make your wedding that much more spectacular. There is something to be said about hiring a independent DJ rather than going through a entertainment company. It makes the entire process that much more personable which is something you will grow to appreciate and sincerely thank yourself for in the end.
