Craig from Silicon Forest Entertainment was simply amazing!! We had a unique "backyard" wedding with over 100 guests on a 12 acre rural property and were struggling to design the layout that would be compatible with mics, sound, etc. Craig offered to make two separate trips out to our venue (an hour drive for him) and give us his insight, which was invaluable. We also asked for a very unique intro song that required the mixing of multiple forms of media and sounds clips, and Craig delivered without batting an eye. And, all of this was BEFORE our actual wedding or any money had exchanged hands. On the night of, Craig was professional, kind, energetic and even played for an extra 45 minutes, because our transportation was late. He kept the party going strong, while also keeping guests informed, and my husband and I at ease. The next day, as we were basking is wedded bliss, I got multiple text messages about how much fun the guests had, and every single one mentioned the DJ and the dance party. And, to top it all off, about two weeks later, I open Facebook one morning to find a wonderful 3 minute compilation video that Craig had taken on his cell phone that completely captured the feeling of our wedding day, set to one of our favorite songs. This was an awesome surprise, and an extra perk that we were not expecting, and just made our day that much more memorable. I could continue to write about Craig's excellent service, but I'm sure a novel would be lost on any bride-to-be in the middle of wedding planning. So, here's my advice: Hire Craig!!! He was an integral part in the success of our day and one of the main reasons we remember every detail with such joy. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 10/13/2015

Craig is the best!
We originally weren’t planning on having a DJ at our wedding, but Craig is awesome and we are so glad we changed our minds! We had already booked his wife as our photographer (Dionne is absolutely amazing, if you need a photographer definitely check her out) and so they gave us a discount for booking the two of them together. The two of them are a great package deal, they are both so sweet, and do amazing work. We’ve all been to those weddings where the dance floor is dead. Craig does an incredible job of reading the crowd, and I think every guest was on the dance floor at least once at our wedding. He was great about playing songs from our requested list, and mixing in other songs that would appeal to everyone. Also, his additional equipment such as uplighting really made a difference with the ambiance and appearance of the venue. We are so glad we hired Craig as our DJ, it made a huge difference to have someone be the MC and help run the timeline, and make sure that everybody was having a good time.Sent on 03/13/2019

Amazing Experience / Amazing DJ
Craig did an absolutely phenomenal job as a DJ/MC for our wedding. We could not have been happier with his expertise, professionalism, and attention to detail. Even from our initial meeting with Craig, we got the sense he really wanted to get to know us as a couple and asked great questions to get a feel of what we were thinking in regards to music/vibe/additional services. We appreciated his warmth right from the get-go.Sent on 12/12/2018
Craig's pre-made music customization forms made it very easy for us to plan out our playlists for each moment of the day (prelude, ceremony, first dance, cocktail, dinner, etc.) Craig responded quickly to any questions we had about set-up and additional services. We wound up going with one of his photo-booth packages which we loved! Was a really fun addition to the evening and allowed guests to come home with an extra souveneir. In comparison to other photobooths we researcehd, Craig's was far more affordable and the set up was smooth and easy.
On the day of, Craig implemented music transitions seamlessly, was gracious and kind to guests, and did a great job of helping us stick to a timeline and introduce our guests that would be giving toasts. He responded quickly to small feedback we had for him and worked really well with our coordinator. Craig knew how to read the room and adjusted the order of our more danceable tracks according what he was seeing. That kept everyone on the dance floor for the whole night (exactly what we wanted)!
We highly recommend working with Craig/Silicon Forest for your wedding and/or event. Can't speak highly enough of his work.
Craig with Silicon Forest Entertainment is a fantastic person to work with. He is equal parts professional and incredibly talented. Out of all the DJ's I have worked with, Craig knows how to read a crowd better than most anyone and his choice in music is always current and top notch. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to have an awesome dance party at their wedding.
I worked with Craig of Silicon Forest Entertainment this summer at a beautiful Bridal Veil Falls wedding, and I was highly impressed! He was professional, prompt, friendly, and was great at coordinating with me as a photographer to ensure I didn't miss any important moments. The sound for the ceremony was flawless, and later at the reception he made the transitions between cocktail hour, dinner, toasts, and dancing smooth and easy. And the dancing! Craig clearly knows how to read the crowd, because the dance floor was full and the guests were having a blast! I stayed for an extra hour of photos because everyone was having so much fun, I didn't want to miss a shot! I highly recommend Silicon Forest Entertainment for your wedding DJ needs.
I met Craig of Silicon Forest while shooting at the Oregon Golf Club. As a filmmaker/videographer audio is one of my biggest stressors. Having someone on the team who not only knows what they're doing, but is also helpful where I have needs/wants can really hope the day, and more importantly the wedding film, go all the better! I'm happy to say Craig was a real pro, from equipment to personal interactions and everything in between. Lots of people can come with a sound system and a playlist. I appreciated that Craig was helpful beyond the essentials! Looking forward to working alongside them again.
