FUN & CLASSY ENTERTAINMENT THAT MATCHES YOUR STYLE

If you like the idea of having a dedicated, full-time, single-operator DJ who does only weddings & who will be fully vested in you & your big day, then you’ll get an excellent value in service & performance. In addition to spot-on music skills, couples reserve me to guarantee they have the following: skillful & appropriate emcee; creative ideas; availability & speed in answering questions; in short, sharp all-around performance. Unlike most DJ companies on The Knot, Weddings by Paris is NOT a volume-based, churn & burn, multiple DJ company where you might not be sure which part-time DJ you’re getting. I will work with you to identify your vision & bring that vision to life. Choose as much or as little of your music as you wish. On the equipment-side, you’ll have the right sound setup for your venue; on the talent-side, you can choose from offerings like a Expanded intros, Custom voiceovers, Love Story & more to make big moments & memories bigger by personalizing your reception, or choose none & simply enjoy a great dance party. As a full-time, single-operator, 1-wedding-per-day DJ, I have the time to pay attention to what's important to you; acquire & listen to any of your special or ethnic music selections that I might not have or be familiar with; do any custom editing you want for any of your formal dances or ceremony musi; do a site visit at your venue prior to your big day; answer your emails, phone calls & texts immediately; take a personalized approach involving you in planning your entertainment, creating a non-cookie cutter, unforgettably fun celebration experience; help you properly plan & execute your vision for your wedding day

Excellent wedding DJ

We loved working with Paris for our wedding! He was extremely professional and ran the reception very well! I loved that we were able to craft how we wanted the reception to flow, including specific dances we wanted to include and some dances/traditions we didn't want to include. We felt he truly cared about us and our wedding. I would highly recommend!

Excellent!

Paris was great! He was super responsive at all phases of planning, and gave us a really useful prep packet to help plan our event schedule. He clearly had a lot of experience and smoothly managed all of his equipment setup/teardown with minimal supervision, and nailed every important music change timing during the ceremony and reception. Lastly, he kept the dance floor moving and everyone had a blast once it opened up, and all of our friends enjoyed the night until closing!

Exceptional D.J.

Paris was our DJ for our ceremony/cocktail hour/reception and he did an exceptional job. He is very organized and thorough so you never feel like you're missing anything. We added uplighting and sparklers to our package and Paris tailored the color of the uplighting perfect to our wedding colors. Any song requests we had he was able to make happen for us. He read the crowd throughout the night to keep the energy going. We didn't want a DJ who would be loud/obnoxious throughout the reception, which we've experienced before and Paris was the exact opposite. He was very professional in every aspect. Our wedding was amazing and so many people were so excited about our DJ and the songs/vibe he had. We got so many compliments and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for any event. Thank you so much!!

Owner & DJ

With my terrific wife & 2 super kids, I left corporate America in 2005. My DJ career began with a multi-op company whose DJ’s all work part-time. Disenchanted with the impersonal, volume-based multi-DJ business model, I started my own business, providing my couples with a non-cheesy, musically lively reception. I take a personalized approach that involves them in planning their entertainment, creating a non-cookie cutter, unforgettably fun celebration experience:)

Over 500 weddings later, I still get the best couples: real, genuine people who are interested in having a fun & classy wedding day!

Absolutely amazing, you can see he knows what he is doing and makes for a stress free with a well organized night for the bride and groom. PROFESSIONAL is SYNONYMOUS WITH PARIS! He works well with couples to make everything they imagine come true, I know its hard to pick vendors for this big day But if you can get DJ PARIS for your wedding you and your guests will never forget what an amazing night it was. I am looking to working with him again, because like me, he knows that we are not important, but the couple is!

Lois Heckman, Celebrant Lois Heckman, Celebrant Wedding Officiants

Paris is a complete professional! I've worked with him at many weddings and he knows when to step forward and when to step back. He understands that the wedding is not about him, but about you, the couple! He is a generous and kind person as well. I highly recommend Paris!
