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

Professional, Prepared, FUN!!
My husband and I were so impressed with Sound By Design on our wedding day. We used their DJ and lighting services. Our DJ, Torie, was awesome. They provided services for the ceremony and reception. The music was perfect for the ceremony - was timed well and on point. At the reception people were dancing before dancing was even set to begin! The music was right on point with what we wanted for each part of the evening. We even gave Torie the difficult task of multiple mother-son dances which he tackled flawlessly and seamlessly integrated the songs. Every song we wanted was played, all names were pronounced correctly, and the dance floor was full all night. The lights looked beautiful - we had up lighting throughout the venue and cafe bulbs over the head table. Thank you Torie and Sound by Design for being a huge part of our wedding day!Sent on 05/08/2019

Perfect MC and DJ!
Ray was FANTASTIC to work with right from the start! He made us feel immediately at ease that our day was going to go off without a hitch. He was super easy to work with and played perfect music even when we had just given him broad genres of what we liked. His MC'ing was also great and he kept the day moving smoothly. Our guests loved him and so did we! We would highly recommend Sound by Design and Ray!Sent on 05/01/2019
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!
