Rick Ehlert played an incredible role in our wedding this September at Cuvee in Milwaukee. Rick was incredibly responsive and very structured. Sound by Design has a process that works! They follow a script that relies on putting the customer first and learning about each couple's personality. They take notes, ask questions, and then make recommendations.Sent on 09/18/2018
Rick was more than just our DJ, he was an outstanding wedding consultant that kept us on track, offered advice, talked about timing, and also gave us information on what to expect during the wedding process. He took the time to meet with our officiant before hand to go over the logistics, and was also very interactive with the wedding party. He didn't just hide behind the DJ booth, he was appropriately checking in and watched us for musical queues; he never played a song on our list until he saw us out on the dance floor and appropriately mixed in songs the entire crow would like.
During the reception, I received 5 different compliments on the music choice, volume, and guest mentioned it was "the best wedding playlist they have heard."
If you want more than just a DJ, if you want a consultant and a tremendous MC, if you want someone that has your best interests in mind, or if you want someone to help throw an awesome party - go with Sound by Design..... go with our guy Rick!
Rick also killed the light game. The lights we appropriate and complimentary during the dinner, and then in tune with the music during the dancing. He lowered the lights during certain songs, then sent them dancing once the beat dropped. Solid work.
He wasn't just a wedding DJ, he was an instrumental

All in one, awesome service
We worked with SBD for their lighting, dj/MC, videography and photo booth services. Every element of what they provided, the way they communicated and what they recommended was outstanding. They brought our visions and tastes to life all while being calm, personable and so professional over the course of our wedding planning and on our wedding day. Thank you SO much for all you did to ensure our day was a blast!Sent on 06/04/2019

Best All in One DJ in Milwaukee
Sound By Design went above and beyond for us from day one. The SBD team held several meetings throughout our planning process in order to nail down all of the details. They did our cocktail hour and reception music, photo booth, uplights, and string bulb lighting. Their client music portal is a wonderful tool that we used to list all of our requests ahead of time, and our DJ Ray played all of them, no matter how obscure they were. We requested a unique first dance song where we wanted two songs seamlessly blended into one, and Ray did an incredible job! Our first dance was everything we wanted and imagined in one song that fit us perfectly. He read the crowd really well, and our dance floor was packed the whole night. He was a great MC, too, and was really fun to work with! We received so many compliments from our guests on the music selection and Ray's DJ-ing. The photobooth was so fun and busy all night. SBD provides props and a backdrop, so you don't have to buy your own (our florist provided our backdrop). Guests get a printed photo, and we received a scrapbook of the photos. They also sent us digital images of the photos for download. We requested the stringbulbs for our indoor venue a couple months before the wedding, and SBD made it happen in a way that was romantic and not obstructing anything with trellises. Ray and the SBD team made our day special, everything was perfect, and I am so glad we used them!Sent on 08/10/2019
Book as a DJ client and recieve $500 off videography
We have worked with Sound by Design at many of our weddings and their DJ's are always professional and do a great job! They all are friendly and you can tell really enjoy their job!!!! We would hands down always recommend them for a great professional DJ team that will do an amazing job!!!!!
I have no idea where to even begin with Sound By Design. Simply put... they are the BEST in the business. From their ability to keep the party going ALL night long to the details they put into making each and every wedding a success are unmatched. We recently used SBD for my sister's wedding and they totally transformed Turner Hall into a wedding right out of a magazine. The color wash and uplighting in the room was so beyond magical. The photo booth was a hit and they just launched a SBD Films division which we also used and were blown away. Don't think twice... book them before your date is gone!
