When it came time to pick a DJ for our wedding, we didn't even look to anyone but Brian. I had worked with Brian back in 2009 for my daughter's wedding and I attended a wedding again in 2015 that Brian was the DJ/MC. Brian is extremely professional, organized and easy to work with. His years of experience are very evident when planning your special day. He meets with you personally a couple times throughout the planning process and also attends the rehearsal to ensure everything goes off without a hitch. He uses an online tool that is so easy to use. You can choose your play list and even add a "do not play list". The tool also helps you to plan your ceremony and reception down to every little detail. Our favorite part of his ideas were the Grand Entrance and the Love Story. Both of these personal the reception and make it so much more enjoyable. With the Grand Entrance, you can write about each bridesmaid/groomsmen to share how you know them and why they were chosen to be in your wedding. The Love Story is amazing. He provides the bride and groom with a list of questions that you complete confidentially. He then weaves them into a unique, personal, funny and intimate story to share with your guests on how you met, fell in love etc... Brian also offers any help needed to complete your play list for the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception etc... He will ensure the crowd is engaged and having a good time. Brian goes way above and beyond the expectations of a DJ. I had an outdoor wedding in mid December. It was chilly (mid 40's). My feet were freezing after staying outside for the pictures. I told Brian I needed some time to thaw my feet before we would be ready for the grand entrance, as I truly could not feel my toes. Brian went and found a couple buckets, filled them with hot water for me to soak my feet and help "defrost" them ha. I don't know any other DJ that would provide that service!! I highly recommend Brian for your DJ/MC !
Thank you Cheryl for such an amazing review full of details and love. It was so great to be a part of your big day as much as it was to be a part of your daughter’s big day back in 2009. Thank you for having me back to help celebrate with the family once again! Don’t forget to always keep your feet warm! :)
Brian was very helpful in the planning of our wedding. On our wedding day everything went seamlessly. I didn't have to worry about anything!! Everything flowed very well, and our guests kept talking about what a great reception we had! They bragged about how our music had a little bit for everyone, the young, the old and those in between. Everyone loved the Love Story and not once did we have to answer the question "so how did you meet?". Our wedding day was awesome and the memories from that day will last a lifetime!
Thanks so much Caitlin for the wonderful review. I enjoyed celebrating with you two and your families. And it’s one that I will never forget!
Brian did an amazing job at our wedding! Brian was very responsive to any questions that my husband or I had before the wedding and he was always prepared. The planning meetings were helpful and the planning portal was easy to use and it gave me piece of mind that our wedding day would go very smoothly. Brian was very helpful at the rehearsal when we really did not know what we were doing. The wedding day went off without a hitch because of Brian. He helped us figure out exactly where we should have the ceremony in my mom's yard and he made sure all of the events at the reception happened in a timely manner. Also, he quickly adapted when my little brother came in before he was supposed to during the grand entrance. Everyone loved the love story, including my husband and I. Brian was amazing and my husband and I would recommend him to anyone!
Thank you so much for the wonderful write up, Jessica & Chris! I had a blast at your wedding! Thank you for having me!
Brian was an incredible DJ. Rachel and I were completely blown away by his dedicated work to his craft, everything from the planning meetings to the rehearsal the day before to the wedding ceremony/reception itself. Brian had obviously worked/seen/been to a lot more weddings than we had at our venue (the Dayton Art Institute) so he had a couple of great suggestions that made the ceremony run very smoothly (where bridesmaids/groomsmen walk out from, etc.) which was a huge help. Brian also is a great guy who really cares about the bride and groom and wants to make the evening as special as possible. The love story portion of the reception was great and Brian even will snap a few pictures of people dancing, so you get a few bonus shots on top of what the photographer takes as well which is awesome! Brian played an excellent playlist at our reception that really got the dance floor going and you really can't go wrong with Brian Harris Entertainment as your Wedding/Party/Corporate Event DJ!
Thank you so much Dan and Rachel! You guys were a fun couple to plan with, and we did it from many states away. Thank you so much for having me a part of your big day!! What an awesome celebration that was!
Brian is so great to work with. He's so professional. The love story is Amazing.
Thank you Beth! It was a true blessing to get to work with your family. It was an absolutely perfect celebration!
Brian was the master of ceremonies for our July 2017 wedding. He was so great to work with and I would highly recommend him! He uses an online planning portal so most of the details were finalized a few weeks before the big day. He did an amzing job with our Love Story and everything ran smoothly from start to finish! Thanks Brian!
Thank you Marie & Clark! It was an honor to be a part of your special day! Thanks again!
When I think of Brian, a few words come to mind: Sincere, Zealous, Energetic, and Organized. Our experience with Brian and the planning process was nothing but top notch. (If I could give 10 stars, I would.) As a control-freak, I let the wedding process plan itself rather than me stressing over things. Ultimately, I knew that if I was paying for top-notch venders then I should trust them to "work their magic." That was my approach with Brian. I always listened to his professional advice and truthfully - let him have the reigns in planning how everything would go that night involving him. From his fantastic planning portal to follow-up emails to make sure we were on the same page, I appreciated everything. The wedding day was everything I thought of and more. Not only were people just commenting on my decor and dress, but they were raving about our DJ. Some comments, "We need him for our wedding," & "He got the crowd going!!" Even though our timeline was a little off due to speeches (whoops), Brian pulled everything back together and used his organization skills to shift a few things around. If you need a DJ that cares and truly wants the best time for you and your guests, then you can't go wrong with Brian.
Oh my goodness, such kind words, Katie. Thank you so much for your fantastic review! Your wedding was amazing! Lots of great people on the "team". :)
Brian was BY FAR our favorite vendor. His professionalism and personalization ideas are unmatched. I have a hard time naming him our "DJ" because it truly felt like this title didn't do him justice! He was our only vendor to meet us at our venue to check it out with us, and to show up to our rehearsal practice to work out the kinks! Unheard of!
After hearing the feedback from our guests, here are a FEW of the MANY things we loved about Brian, and that really resonated with our guests:
Our entire wedding party had personalized introductions/stories/songs for their grand entrance. Our guests really got a sense of why we picked each of our friends to be in our wedding. The father/daughter dance... I don't even know where to begin... he had the brilliant idea to do a voiceover of me talking about sentimental things regarding my dad during the song. There was not a dry eye in the building! We did a newly-weds game, where we raised up the stereotypical items to symbolize who we thought fit the description more -but his questions were unlike anything I've seen! So personalized, and so perfect. Before my husband and I did our first dance, he brought everyone to the dance floor to hear our love-story. He didn't miss a single detail and kept it light-hearted, funny, but still so sentimental. He provided uplighting for our danceroom, set them up himself, and had our venue looking exactly how we envisioned it. Lastly, Brian's attention to detail was absolutely incredible. He worked so well with our entire team of vendors and was so helpful with so many ideas and questions we had. I truly believe our wedding was unlike any other 100% due to him. Our families, my husband and I would recommend Brian in a heartbeat to anyone envisioning a unique, and unforgettable wedding.
Wow! Where do I begin in responding to this amazing review? Bree & Andrew, you were absolutely wonderful to work with. You were so attentive to things that I needed from you to prepare myself and guarantee that we would have an amazing evening, which we did! I wish you all the happiness in the world. Thanks again for this amazing review !
Brian was the DJ at our wedding in June 2017. He did an absolutely incredible job! He truly went above and beyond with everything for our wedding. He met with us multiple times during the planning process and checked in with us frequently to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. He is extremely professional and very knowledgeable. We had many guests comment on the "Love Story" that Brian put together for us. It really made the reception more personal. Brian is the absolute best! Would definitely recommend!
Thank you so much Cait & Derek! I loved your love story! Thank you for allowing me to share that with your family & friends! What a great party it was too!!
Brian was awesome to work with! He went above and beyond what we expected out of our DJ. Not only does he meet with you face-to-face ahead of time to calm your nerves, but he was also there at our rehearsal to help us organize things and make sure it was all going to run smoothly. We are still (6 months after the wedding) getting compliments on all of the "cool personal touches" that Brian added to our reception. If you are looking for a DJ that will do more than just play the music, Brian Harris is your guy!
Thank you, Brian!
- Garrett and Ally
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Your reception was such a fun celebration! And thank you for accepting my new beard at your wedding #TeamBeard LOL
Brian was amazing! Beyond professional, takes the time to get to know you, and it really felt like he was a friend a part of our day. He drove an hour to attend our rehearsal to check out the venue and meet some of our other vendors like our officiant and photographer. He offered a lot of fun options to make our wedding unique and stand out from other weddings we've been too. If you are seeking a professional, organized, fun, and experienced DJ who can read a crowd, look no further! The last minute addition of lighting was awesome too! Thanks Brian for being such an awesome DJ for our wedding!
Brian is great to work with. He really wants to get to know the bride and groom well so that he can give them and their guests the best experience possible. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Thank you Liz and Jeramie for having me a part of your day. What a great way to start the 2017 wedding season off…at your celebration! I had an absolute blast with you all and I thank you for letting me to share your love story with everyone!
Brian is a true professional, it was important for us to find a DJ/MC that would provide us with a perfect day with little stress or worry, and he was able to help make our wedding dreams come true!
Brian is very professional, organized, and enthusiastic about his work. His organization prior to booking with him was impressive; during the planning process he was very easy to get in touch with when we had questions. This was noteworthy on the week leading up to our wedding- on the morning of our wedding, he was easily reachable to make some last minute changes.
Brian utilizes an online planning portal which enabled us to convey to him our playlist, special requests, and stories. Brian’s vast library of songs is viewable and interactive making it easy to add and change songs on your list, as well as providing possibilities and suggestions for activities and games during the wedding to help engage your guests. Depending on the ideas that you choose, there is a lot of time and effort to be put forth by the couple, but very worth it! You can add any song you like to your wedding playlist; when we were picking our playlist for the ceremony and reception we had several choices that were not on his list. Brian was quickly able to add good quality music files to meet our requests.
Brian is also great working on the fly: our ceremony was outside in the middle of August and the weather was looking iffy. Brian was prepared to change plans quickly if needed, though luckily we were able to continue with our outdoor ceremony- despite a little sprinkle.
Brian was very organized and kept the guests energized the whole night. He took responsibility of keeping a schedule we had prepared with him and we didn’t have to worry about a thing; he really helped keep our minds at ease! In reality, he kept us relaxed throughout the entire planning process for that matter.
We cannot give a big enough recommendation for what Brian truly deserves!
WE THANK YOU BRIAN!! - Grace & Tom
Wow!!! Thank you guys so much for such a detailed review. Totally worth the wait! :) Working with you two was a dream! It was so wonderful to have such a focused couple to work along side of! I think we made a great team!! IPA for the win!! Haha
Brian Harris was the only DJ we met with. From the first meeting we knew he was the one for us! As the Master of Ceremonies, Brian helped our reception flow smoothly and evenly. I didn't have to worry about a single thing. I would highly recommend his services!
Thank you Emily & Nick for choosing me. From the first meeting I knew you were the ones for me too! :) I just knew you'd be a fun couple to work with and you were! What a fun celebration. All the best to you! Thanks for the kind words.
Our daughter and now son-in-law, chose Brian Harris Entertainment from a list of preferred DJ's for the venue where their wedding was to take place. They knew immediately that Brian was going to provide them with the reception that they had envisioned...and boy, did he deliver! I met Brian on the afternoon before the wedding, as he was setting up his equipment. It was very clear that he was familiar with the venue, it wasn't his first rodeo! He had worked out everything with the bridal couple ahead of time, the songs to be played at the cocktail hour, the introduction of the bridal party, the songs played during the reception, the first dance, the father/daughter and mother/son dances, the great games that had the guests involved throughout the evening. As an MC, he captivated the audience and kept the evening flowing at a steady pace. My husband and I were thrilled with the choice that the now newly weds had made! When visiting with our guests that evening, person after person told us how wonderful the entire event was...in particular how much they enjoyed the reception. We owe that to Brian Harris! Thank you Brian, for giving us a wonderful evening that we will never forget!
Thank you so much Heidi for the wonderful review. I'm so happy that the guests had a great time and that you felt it was a huge success. I appreciate the time you took to write this.
If you're looking for THE MOST PROFESSIONAL DJ in Ohio... look no further. Brian works with exceptional sophistication and truly makes his events special. He absolutely made our wedding! His attention to detail, creativity, and overall professionalism was absolutely perfect. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without him. Thanks, Brian, for making our day so fantastic! -Lauren & Jack
Thank you so much Lauren & Jack! I know I've said this before, but I'm so glad you two did a tour of the Schuster the day you did (a year earlier) when I was set up for another wedding, so that we were able to connect! Your wedding was off the charts awesome and I'm so happy to have been a part of it. Thank you!!
You will not regret this decision. Brian was the d.j for our friend’s wedding and we thought he did great. Our friend’s were really happy with him as well and we decided to choose him for our wedding as well, but we had know idea just how crucial the decision to book Brian was for making our Special Day, and the months leading up to it, perfect! Brian was great to work with and extremely professional; he made us feel very comfortable. He already has a packet of information set up that lets you customize your event and he transforms it into a perfectly transitioning ceremony and reception (if you book him for both). He gave us ideas for things we were unsure of, but was open to any ideas of our own. He let us pick the music that was right for us. We had multiple meetings with him leading up to the wedding, and in the final one he reviewed the plan he created based on the information we gave him and we could make any last minute changes we wanted. He even customized music for us to match the timing we wanted for walking down the aisle and surprising guests during the reception. Brian came to our wedding rehearsal and helped us through that event with all of his knowledge, that otherwise would have been chaos. Our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect and Brian was a huge reason why. The music, the transitions, the flow, the mood, the timing, his words, everything was perfect!! Thank you Brian, we will be forever grateful :)
Thank you Amber & Jake! I kicked off the 2016 wedding season at your wedding! Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of it! And thank you so much for the amazing testimonial! Your details were fantastic!
Brian was absolutely amazing. From start to finish we had complete confidence in his services. We initially met with him and he instantly put us at ease. He knows what he is doing and goes and mapped out what our wedding day could look like. He gave us options to choose from including some great surprises for our guests. He is so prepared and has thought of every aspect of the reception. He sent us forms to fill out that included information about our bridal party and any special guests in attendance that we would like to acknowledge. He is responsive whenever we had a question. He even came out to the venue a few nights before our reception to meet me and ensure the set up was most conducive to what we wanted. During the actual reception he did a wonderful job of pumping people up, keeping the dance floor full, and informing guests of what was going on. I got many compliments on Brian from my guests. I would recommend him completely and fully to anybody looking for a DJ and master of ceremonies.
Thank you Amy and Neil for the kind words. I had an absolute blast at your wedding and you certainly invited festive people to celebrate with you!!
After my best friends wedding in 2009, when I had the privilege of being in a wedding in which Brian was the DJ, I had vowed that the day I got married I would hire him has well. Everything is so personalized - from the simple one on one meetings getting to know my husband and I to the thoughtful introductions of each and every one of the members of our bridal party. We not only hired him for our reception but for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well. As each of our bridesmaids and groomsmen entered the reception, our family and friends were given a brief introduction about them - including their personal lives (kids, marriage, careers, etc.), how Todd or I met them and a funny story that was memorable about each one of them. On top of that, we were able to choose the song that they walked in to that was symbolic of our friendship. Brian allowed us to pick out EVERY song for EVERY significant piece of our reception. Another AWESOME feature is the love story. Todd and I each formulated our own version of our "love story" - keeping everything confidential until day of. During the reception Brian combined our stories and shared it with our guests. It was definitely one of our favorite and our gues'ts favorites parts. Prior to wedding day we were given forms to fill out to ensure the songs we definitely wanted played were played and even the ones we didn't want played. There was never a moment during our reception that our dance floor wasn't completely packed. As well as the songs we chose, our guests were able to go up and request a song to be played. I can't talk highly enough about the service we received from Brian Harris. I would recommend him to every bride and groom looking to have a personalized, fun, energetic and lively reception!!
Thank you so much Erin & Todd! What an amazing and beautiful celebration your day was. Thank you so much for looking me up six years later after Emily in Roberto's wedding. It was a perfect day and I'll never forget it.
We hired Brian as the Master of Ceremonies and DJ for our reception on Oct 17, 2015. He was unbelievable and we can't stop talking about how much fun we had and how smooth the whole night went!! He kept us informed throughout the night and gave us an idea of what was to come. The dance floor was rocking all night and people of all ages were having a great time. His experience and preparation was easy to see. A lot of planning, stress and hard work go into planning a wedding as you know and we can say with extreme confidence that we never worried about his part! When we met with Brian for the first time we instantly knew he was the DJ we wanted. Was he a little more expensive than most? Probably. But if you were at our wedding you knew why we went with him and we would make the same choice again if we had to!
Our wedding party loved the introductions because they really felt like they were a part of the wedding, which is how it should be. The Love Story was also an awesome part of the wedding and our guests said they really enjoyed getting to know the story about us. It helped them feel like they were really a part of our celebration and we can't thank Brian enough for that. We hope to see Brian at weddings in the future and certainly recommend him to everyone that is getting married! He made it a day we will never forget.
Erica & Michael, you two are the best! Thank you for your awesome review!
Over the years my husband and I have been to many weddings and we saw how easily a MC/DJ could make or break a reception, so when we started planning our wedding we knew that we had to find someone special to help us create a memorable night and Brian did just that! From the first time we talked to him we knew that he had a passion for his job and genuinely cared about creating an amazing day for us. We received a ton of compliments about our grand entrance with the bridal party, our love story, and in general just how awesome Brian was! He has so many ideas to make your reception more fun and interactive for the guests. Not to mention, he knows how to keep the dance floor full! One of our friends was having so much fun on the dance floor that he actually split his pants wide open and didn’t even care :)
Choosing Brian to be our MC/DJ was easily one of the best decisions we made!!
Thank you Beth and Mike for the wonderful review. I'll never forget the guy who split his pants. I have a picture of it. LOL You certainly invited an extremely festive group of people who made my job that much easier. All they needed was permission to dance, and they did! Thanks again!!
Brian was excellent! He was everything I could have wanted in a DJ and more! Throughout our entire planning process I was never stressed about the entertainment aspect because I knew Brian had it taken care of. He is a true professional in every aspect of what he does and has everything down to a science. For our day of, we were about to go out for our 'Grand Entrance', and I had forgotten what order the bridesmaids and groomsmen needed to be in. Brian calmly walked back to where we were and had a sheet in front of him with the right order. He quickly organized everyone and we were on our way. It was something small, but also so nice to know that I could count on him to fix things like that. He not only is organized, but truly works with you to make it YOUR wedding. He also has lots of ideas for fun things to do during the reception which are a little more out of the box then typical wedding traditions. Because of Brian, I could relax and just have the best day of my life! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding.
Thank you so much Becca and Greg for the wonderful words. You're right, I always have my couples back on wedding day so there's never any worries. I'm glad you experienced that with me!!
First let me start with this....Brian is AMAZING and totally worth every penny! I heard about Brian from friends and family when I was asking about a good and reliable DJ/MC. When we first met with Brian, we were completely blown away. He was the first DJ/MC I looked at and I knew by the end of our first meeting that I wanted him to be a part of our wedding celebration. The customization and details that he puts into his work is amazing. Between customizing your playlists to perfectly timing every aspect of the reception, you can be assured that everything will be impeccable. Months before the wedding, we received various packets to help guide us through customizing the reception and many different options for entertainment and games. He gave us PLENTY of time to work on everything and was always just a text away if we had any questions.
He was very patient with all of our questions and updates and changes and more changes and fixes in the months leading up to the wedding. We could not have asked for a better DJ/MC. He allowed us to completely tailor our whole reception to really be about us as a couple... every little detail from the voice over on our first dance to the love story and the wedding party introduction at the start of the reception were perfect! During one of our planning meetings with the venue, Brian tagged along with us so he could get a better visual of the venue. He helped us with deciding on the best layout for the reception to optimize sound and space for dancing. He even helped with other details about the ceremony/reception. We really cannot express how happy we were with everything that Brain did to make our day amazing! We have both received SOO many compliments on how awesome and fun our reception was and how everything was so perfectly planned and executed. I can confidently say that this was due to Brian!
Holy smokes! What an amazing testimonial! Thank you Katrina & Kevin! You guys were so much fun to work with and your families totally rock!! What a party! Thanks again for having me!!
From the moment we had our meeting w/ Brian we knew he was our DJ! Walking in the door greeting us he made us feel welcomed & the meeting lasted longer then we scheduled due to easy conversations w/ Brian. I was impressed just walking into his office & seeing the equipment on hand. Guest at our wedding were commenting on how professional & surprised they were w/ him & the equipment he brought for our ceremony. We even recommended him for a friends wedding & they chose Brian for their ceremony & reception.
Brian is very hands on & the time & effort he put into our wedding is 100%! Brian even showed up for our wedding rehearsal & I had forgotten what we agreed on as far as how the wedding Party was walking out & I totally switched it up on him & it was no big deal he made it happen & fixed the music for the ceremony to fit the change. Brian's idea's & The twist we added at the end of the ceremony had ppl talking all evening. The introductions of our wedding party, the love story, our twist in our wedding song, the twist of the bouquet toss for married ladies only.... All of it was amazing!! We never imagined our reception & ceremony to turn out as perfect as Brian made it for us.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Mindy and Jon!! I had a blast at your wedding!
Brian Harris is hands down the best DJ/Emcee! Brian has a great personality, he is fun yet extremely professional. He knows how to keep wedding guests entertained. He has so many little tricks up his sleeve that my husband and I felt were such an amazing contribution to our wedding reception - not only did we love him so did our guests. We still have people talking to us about how perfect our wedding was and I owe a LOT of that to Brian Harris. Thank you for being passionate, caring, hard-working and dedicated to your role as a DJ/Emcee. We couldn't repay you if we tried. Any brides out there looking for the most perfect entertainment? Brian Harris is definitely your guy!
Thank you so much Kendra & Coleman for everything! Your families are just amazing through and through! It was an honor and pleasure to be a part of such an amazing day! Thank you for choosing me!!!
