Wedding DJ

We love working working Sound by Design for our brunch wedding this July. Our pre-wedding planning with Conner was so easy, and he really made planning our music and extra details so stress free (especially planning it all out of state via zoom). Ryan and Miguel were fantastic DJ's, kept the flow of the ceremony and reception smooth, and kept the entire vibe super fun. Our guests raved about the music selection and the fun dance vibes! Music was one of our most important vendors for our wedding (and thing we cared the most about). The entire experience was so easy, and loved how organized everything was from start to finish, we felt so confident our wedding was in great hands. We were thrilled to work with Sound by Design and could not recommend them more, really one of the best vendors we worked with.

5/5 - Sound by Design & Trent Are the Best!!

Sound by Design, especially Trent, was a total game-changer for our wedding. They didn't just play music; they created an unforgettable experience. Trent and the team went above and beyond, from guiding our guests to making our photobooth a hit. Our wedding was beautiful and smooth, thanks to them. We were so impressed that they were able to keep the dance floor dancing all night - we're not usually dancers but we were on the dance floor every chance we got - they made it so (!) fun. Trent and the team listened to our ideas, plans, and preferences and ran with them, making everything so so easy for us. We felt like we just had to show up and enjoy. If you want an incredible, 5/5 wedding experience, Sound by Design is the way to go!

We loved trent & sbd!

If you’re searching for a wedding DJ, stop your search and book SBD! We had such a fantastic experience working with Trent and Rick. They were communicative, easy to talk to, and answered all of our questions leading up to our wedding day. Shortly before our big day, we had the opportunity to meet with Trent. He is so friendly, so cool, easy-going, and energetic - we absolutely loved working with him! When we changed a few of our songs last minute the week of the wedding, he was flexible and made sure of the changes. Trent played the PERFECT music - we asked to start the night with classic weddings, throw in a slow song or two, and then transition to college dance hits (reliving our best lives). We had the BEST time dancing with our friends and family because of Trent. Our college friends got reallllly into the dancing, our fun aunts and uncles were feeling it, and he even got our baby cousins on the dance floor. So, a million thanks to Trent and SBD for helping us have the best day ever! We can’t recommend him and the crew enough!

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!
