Richard was the DJ at our wedding on September 13, 2020, he was made sure that our music was perfect and went above and beyond to make sure he had all the music we wanted. Richard is very professional I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ. I would most definitely use him again if I need a DJ.Sent on 07/25/2013

I cannot thank DJ Richard enough! I contacted him late in planning because we switched our date due to covid and needed a new DJ. I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason because booking DJ Richard at the last minute was the best decision. He was flexible, professional, and a joy to work with. He also works well with other vendors and goes with the flow. He created a great playlist for our wedding based off of a few songs we provided. He also recommended some great songs when we had no idea what to choose. You can't go wrong booking DJ Richard!Sent on 08/27/2020

Rick was very helpful & proffesional. He did very well with mixing the music to accomadate all 4 generations in attendance. Kids ran to the dance floor when the Disney songs came on. Loved his sense of humor, when he created a star wars logo with our names. Great job MC'ing the whole event & kept our timeline flowing.Sent on 07/10/2019

The best DJ out there!!!!!
We hired Mike Beene through Richard Green Entertainment and could not have been more thrilled!!! DJ Mike is extremely, extremely detailed-orientated and went through EVERY detail with us before the wedding. He is flexible and just nailed it. I could not have asked for a better DJ. How much he prepares shows by his perfect execution. He also gave us amazing ideas to make our ceremony and reception unique, which our guests LOVED. I would hire him again and again, and you should too!!!! THANKS MIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!Sent on 04/01/2019

Y'all, I am convinced Richard is the best DJ possibly ever.Sent on 11/28/2018
I have to start with the best part... our reception music! I can not even tell you how many people came up to us during and after our wedding day saying that Richard was the. best. DJ and played the best music of any wedding they had been to. Even our coolest friends, who have been to dozens of weddings, said Richard was the best! Richard truly knows how to read a crowd and plays what will keep people on the dance floor. Our guests (of all ages) danced all. night. long. We truly owe our party to Richard and can not be more pleased with our music and the flow of our evening.
We got married at Rock Hill Plantation House in Stafford, VA where Richard is the venue host. We loved the convenience of using Richard, who, obviously, knows his own venue in and out and what worked in the space!
Months before our day, we received very well organized day-of planning sheets which made me, an over-planner, feel so confident about our decision. Richard got a feel for what music we wanted for our reception, mapped out our ceremony music, familiarized himself with our wedding party, and made sure we were on the same page with a timeline of events -- all this planning was my dream and made me feel SO chill on our day!
Richard made sure all of our events on the day-of ran so smoothly and it really felt like we had a friend guiding our day and guests along (he truly makes you feel like family!) From start to finish, Richard was amazing and we can not recommend his services enough :)

Perfect Soundtrack for a Perfect Night
If you want a perfect night that has a great flow, excellent music choices, and a professional leading the way than you must hire Richard Green!Sent on 10/28/2018
We had our wedding at Rock Hill Plantation and hired Richard to DJ which felt like the best of both worlds. He sends out a thorough questionnaire and then the follow up meeting ensures he has all the must plays and the overall feel of the wedding, reception, and cocktail hour down. He gave us an overall timeline at our meeting which worked out great. He even found some obscure family favorite polkas for my Polish family to take over the dance floor.
My favorite part was the flow of the whole evening. He spaced out every big event like the parent dances, the toasts, and the cake cutting so that the evening was full of special moments and no one was bored or wandered off. The dance floor was always packed too as the mixture of music was perfect for the crowd we had. He's excellent at reading the room and using songs to keep people coming back for more. He was very attentive to Dan and I as well letting us know where we were in the evening and making sure we had everything we needed. He's friendly with the guests, efficient with the time, not a bit over the top or corny. Richard was a wonderful addition to our night and we would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Richard Green was the best decision we could have made for our wedding. We were married at Rock Hill Plantation House, the wedding venue he owns, and hired him as our DJ/MC as well. He provided our ceremony music which made for the most beautiful ambiance and we had SO much fun at the reception! People are still raving about how much fun they had. He is incredibly poised and charismatic and he made for an amazing, lighthearted and entertaining evening. He is funny without being obnoxious and provided the perfect amount of intros/speaking without taking away from the music at all. We could not have been happier with our decision to hire Richard and he is worth every penny!Sent on 04/24/2018
Andrea · Married on 03/10/2018
Richard Green was nothing short of wonderful! Very up to date and knowledgeable. We were the type of couple who knew EXACTLY what we wanted and had TONS more music than we absolutely needed for our event. He made sure that our high priority selections were played and even threw some in that we hadn't thought of that were perfectly timed. Richard definitely knows his way around a great party. We received so many compliments on how he kept the party going without being intrusive. Made our entire event seamless and the best time!Sent on 03/30/2018
Janelle · Married on 06/03/2017
Richard was the best DJ and MC at our wedding. He took into account all of our song requests and made sure to mix up the music genres to accommodate the different age groups and music preferences of our guests. He helped the evening flow nicely from one event to the next and would say things that made our night feel very personalized to us. We asked Richard to play ‘Let it Go’ from Frozen per the request of our flower girls and he found the perfect time to work that into the playlist, it was probably the biggest hit of the night! If you are booking your wedding at Rock Hill or another venue definitely book Richard as your DJ, you can’t go wrong! Thanks again, Richard!Sent on 06/12/2017
Alexandra · Married on 04/08/2017
Richard was amazing. He took the time to meet with us before the wedding and helped guide us when we were unsure of what we wanted. Even the day of we had some changes to songs and Richard rolled right with it without any hesitation. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get married in the Fredericksburg area.Sent on 04/17/2017
Meg · Married on 02/19/2017
Richard did our morning wedding during February of this year. He kept our guests entertained with a jazzy take on a brunch reception. He is fantastic to work with - he has an amazing level of experience that is unparallel to most other DJs due to his extensive work in the field as well as the experience of owning a thriving wedding venue. We are so glad we went with him for our reception and ceremony!Sent on 06/04/2017
Erika · Married on 11/12/2016
Richard is amazing to work with! He kept our guests entertained, engaged and excited throughout the entire reception. In addition, he is such a professional! He focused on building relationships and it is so easy to talk with him about what you want/need for your big day. His communication with the other vendors was superb. I can't imagine booking any other DJ in the future!!!Sent on 11/23/2016
Sarah · Married on 09/18/2016
Richard was absolutely fantastic! In all honesty, I didn’t really want to have the whole wedding. I had seen too many friends stressed out while planning their weddings; it seemed to take all of the fun out of the process. But I was convinced to do it and when it came time to start looking at venues, Rockhill Plantation was the first we visited. Right from the start, Richard put me at ease. He clearly loves what he does and is so happy to be able to devote himself to his wedding business full time. His desire to give couples their perfect day just how they imagined is clear as soon as you talk with him. The plantation itself is stunning. It’s just the right size- everything is close together but not on top of each other. It was a gear fit because we had a few close family members who aren’t able to walk very far or navigate difficult terrain (like some of the wineries I visited). And of course, there are goats! After we visited a few other venues, we wondered why we even bothered because Rockhill and Richard were on a completely different level. As we were in the process of planning, every time we hit a snag or crisis, Richard was there to talk myself and my mother down, and assure us that it was going to be ok. Not only did he make us feel better, but also he had everything under control. We also hired Richard as our DJ and couldn’t have been more pleased! He was the perfect master of ceremonies and was really interested in getting to know what music was a good fit for us. I met with him a few weeks before the wedding to go over music and some special requests. He literally played everything I wanted, including some things I hadn’t thought of. But Richard is that good. He made our wedding day so much better than I could have ever dreamed of! You can trust him with your music, your venue and your wedding…he will not disappoint. The plantation is perfect for someone who wants to keep it simple and classy. Book with Richard…you’ll be so glad youSent on 10/09/2016

We chose Richard to be our DJ at Rock Hill Plantation House and he did not disappoint! He worked with us beforehand to understand our taste in music and play the songs we wanted, and he also suggested songs for cocktail hour and for when the guests arrived, which we had no clue about. He was lively and fun and kept the party going and all of our guests loved him!Sent on 05/20/2016

After we booked Rock Hill Plantation House for our wedding venue, Richard told us he also is a DJ and we knew we needed to book him for that as well. You can tell how much he absolutely loves what he does and he is great at it! Everyone had so much fun at our wedding and it was a great party (even for a Thursday)! He kept the flow going the entire time! I don't think there was a time the dance floor was empty! He's the BEST!!!!!Sent on 05/25/2016

After meeting with Richard to book Rock Hill Plantation House as our venue and finding out he was also a DJ, we knew we had to have him! The party was so fun and he really read the crowd and kept the flow of the night going smooth. He worked with us beforehand to go over names and music preferences and it was perfect.

Wow! Richard did it! He managed to make our daughter's entire New Year’s Eve wedding and reception an unbounded success from processional to final send-off and everything in between. We heard nothing but glowing accolades about Richard as we searched for a DJ who would be the perfect fit for our once in a lifetime event. Now we can add our voices to that chorus praises. Our entire experience was positive, and we hope to spread the word about you with as many others as we can. Richard kept the party going. It's was just perfect.Sent on 05/08/2016

If you need a DJ don't bother looking else where Richard Green is truly the best of the best! He was seriously the very first thing we booked when it came to our wedding. We first met Richard when he DJed my Sister-in-laws wedding and we just knew we had to get him too! Richard is more then just your average DJ. He doesn't just want to know what Music you like. He wants to know what all the people that are important to you so that he can make sure that ALL of your guests truly enjoy your special day. He went above and beyond for Chris and I. by first of all leaving his own wedding venue to perform at our wedding ( In search of a venue ?check out Rock Hill Plantation, it is stunning!! we got a tour during a meeting with him and I wished my wedding was there !), When we were stuck on what song we wanted to use for the cake cutting ceremony based on other things we liked he was able to pick the perfect suggestion right away, When I mentioned in a meeting that I was deathly afraid of sparklers but we were using them as our grand exit anyways he saved this bride by suggesting a unique alternative that totally rocked!! He provided a few pep talks, made sure every key player was where they needed to be when they needed to be there which I'm sure was like heading cats, and he made sure that Chris and I were able to get plates of food and actually EAT THEM!! our wedding would not have been as wonderful as it was with out Richard! Each time I talk to some one since the Wedding I hear how it was one of the funnest weddings they have ever been to and a good portion of the credit for that goes to Richard!Sent on 10/29/2015

Richard was a phenomenal DJ, here's why.Sent on 10/27/2015
While most DJs will probably just ask you what music you like, Richard wants to know what music you like, your parents like, your grandpa likes, how you met, what you do for fun, etc...
He tries to get to know his customers so he can create an environment that is unique for that couple's experience.
His introductions were heartfelt and genuine and the music was great all the way from the cocktail hour to the last song. We didn't ever not like a song he played, which is impressive considering we didn't give him a set playlist. And he stayed true to our "do not play" list, despite offers of bribes from guests!
Richard is an award winning DJ for a reason, he truly cares about his customers.

Richard plans with you every step of the way and is just the nicest person you will every meet. He keeps the reception flowing smoothly and adapts very well to changes. Your happiness is his number one priority. I could not have been happier with our choice!Sent on 07/06/2015

Richard Green is truly an all-inclusive package deal. We got lucky in finding him, as we were his first wedding as new owner of Rock Hill Plantation House. I had no idea what to expect for DJ services, but Richard made us feel so comfortable and totally worry free. He knows what he is doing! He provides you with a thorough pre-wedding package to fill out - HUGELY helpful when you aren't sure exactly what to do. You don't need to worry about forgetting to pick songs or laying out an itinerary - he handles ALL of that for you. He is so laid back and easy to talk to, as well. He really knows how to add personal touches to the event without going overboard - he was really more of a Master of Ceremonies than just a DJ! He gave excellent introductions for the wedding party as well as for my (now) husband and I. He kept our guests dancing all night long - I don't think anyone was ready to leave by the time the last song played! If you are bouncing back and forth between creating a song list or having a DJ PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider Richard Green. You will be so grateful you did. He knows how to entertain without taking over the show, and he helped us have a perfect, dream wedding!Sent on 03/24/2015

Richard took the time to meet with us several times during the wedding planning process. He is very calm and professional throughout the planning which was helpful given that the bride and groom were out of state. At the wedding, he was fun without sacrificing class. I would say that he was one of the reasons that the party went so well that we could have gone another few hours. I did not have to worry about a thing during the wedding as he worked incredibly well with all of the vendors.Sent on 12/07/2014

Richard Green was the absolute best DJ we could have asked for!! From the very beginning, Richard spent time getting to know us as a couple, and invested genuine interest in our vision for the day. Though he is the expert, he really wanted to know what WE wanted, to ensure our wedding day was uniquely ours. We feel so incredibly grateful for his time, care, and ability to put us as ease through some stressful wedding planning! He was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, prompt, trustworthy, and totally fun to work with! He went out of his way to make sure our friends and family were well taken care of at the wedding, and the day was smooth, FUN, and enjoyable for us. It was certainly all those things, and more! It was an absolute pleasure working with Richard Green, and we absolutely recommend him to every couple we know!!Sent on 12/20/2014

I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about Richard! Choosing him as our DJ and master of ceremonies was a very easy decision. We met a few vendors at various events, but after meeting Richard for the first time, we instantly knew. His professionalism is unsurpassed and he truly connects with his clients. Richard ensures that the day is absolutely perfect for the bride and groom, completely customizing it to their wants and needs. He also truly assumes the master of ceremonies role and helps to plan out your day, if necessary. Small details, such as confirming that the bridal party has drinks for the welcome toast, are on Richard's radar -- he thinks of it all! With Richard, you can be sure that your wedding will be perfect and you will enjoy every minute!Sent on 06/18/2014
