Incredibly grateful for Sound in Motion!
I can't say enough good things about Sound in Motion (SIM). We worked closely with Shawn at SIM in the beginning phase of our planning process - we were thrilled with the level of attentiveness and excellent customer service we received. We ended up working with Logan as our DJ and feel incredibly lucky! He was spectacular on our wedding day - keeping everyone engaged on the dance floor (from all backgrounds and age groups) and even assisting with the overall flow of the evening. We highly recommend SIM and Logan for any event you are planning - they will make the planning process and execution seamless! :)

THANK YOU SO MUCH to Andrew and Sound in Motion for this weekend - we honestly could not have asked for a better MC/DJ for our special day in Carmel. Andrew truly made our reception more than we could ask for - the whole night went without hitch and the dancefloor was going ALL NIGHT LONG! Our families still can’t stop talking about how great the reception was, from beginning to end. We will never forget it and how amazing Andrew was! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!

Brian from Sound In Motion was the DJ at our wedding last month in Santa Cruz, and he was, in a word, incredible! We had a very specific vibe in mind for our wedding music, California classic rock meets indie for happy hour and dinner and a mix of 1950s/60s oldies and contemporary hits for dancing. Brian nailed it! Everyone loved the music, the dance floor was always full and at the end of the night when the last song was over our guests started chanting "One more song! One more song!" Thanks to Brian, our reception was truly a party. I was also very impressed at how Brian handled last minute changes and requests from me and my husband. Our timeline shifted throughout the evening and he was able to quickly queue up the right songs at the right time. We also had to change our bridal party entrance order at the last minute, and he quickly wrote down the new order and perfectly introduced each couple as they entered the reception. If you want an incredible event, make sure to request Brian.

For my wedding in August, 2018, I had a an outstanding experience with Sound in Motion, and in particular with my DJ/MC, Andy. I could tell from our initial consult over the phone that he knew what he was doing and was extremely experienced. He figured out exactly what we wanted and made it work. In particular, he was able to provide a battery-powered speakers and mic so we could have music and amplified sound for our outdoor ceremony. We also had a bit of an emergency when the power went out at our venue in the middle of our wedding, but Andy had it covered and was still able to keep things running until the power came back on. He played a great mix of songs, including some more classic wedding songs for the older crowd and newer hits for the younger ones, and kept the dance floor full all night. Just as importantly, he kept everyone aware of what was going on all night, and was a perfect MC throughout the reception, making every transition feel totally natural. Perfect 10/10!

Sound in Motion is a very professional company, always responsive to all requests and correspondence. Our DJ, Andrew was absolutely fabulous, guided the entire night of entertainment for my daughter's wedding with so much ease and made it so much fun for all! My daughter and son in law were thrilled with Andrew's skills and the dance floor was filled the entire night with all ages of guests, a true sign that he know how to keep the party going!!! I highly recommend Sound in Motion for any event!!! Cindy and Gene Vanhootegem

My wife & I want to express how happy we were with Sound In Motion
From the start, working with Shawn understanding the importance, to the selection of the team.from the planning, preparation,also the attention to detail
the DJ service which was fantastic at the event. Logan the DJ was on top of everything, from being at the event early, setting up, making sure the music was well planned. Back ground music, dance music as well as working with the guests.
We also used SIM for the photography
Scott was fantastic, with really defining our event through the photography & his creative eye.
from the time the event started until the sunset in the back ground & the ocean at our feet. I can't say enough about his professionalism.
We also used the videographer Jordan, so organized & attention to detail, getting all the important moments of the day.
All three worked so well as a team
They became more to us than just photographer, Video, Dj
They became part of the family
We received so many compliments on all three that unfortunately our review does not do them justice!!
Elizabeth · Married on 06/09/2018
Our DJ was absolutely amazing!! He kept the party going and made sure that everything went very smoothly with our wedding, thank you Adam for doing such an amazing job! We wouldn't want to use anyone else for DJ services in the future!
Kurt · Married on 06/02/2018
Amazing company to work with! Adam was great and easy to work with from start to finish. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a reliable DJ service.

Sound In Motion is an absolute must for anyone looking to have a killer wedding entertainment company. We had our wedding on June 2nd in Saratoga, with Raffi as our Master of Ceremonies and he was incredible! Not only did he have the most perfect playlist and kept people on the dance floor, he was adaptable, witty, great on the mic, and generally kept a pulse on the flow and vibe of the entire day and made sure everything went off without a hitch! I'd also highly recommend the up-lighting package to really make it a memorable dance floor. For the months and weeks leading up to my big day, as I was a bit of a crazy bride, it was such a relief working with Raffi and his team - incredibly organized and responsive - these are true professionals with a passion for what they do. I think the DJ/MC can really make or break an event, and Raffi and his team completely exceeded my expectations and I am still getting compliments today! Thank you SIM and Raffi!
Jon · Married on 05/26/2018
Had both our DJ and photobooth done through Sound in Motion.
We were set up with Dj Cesar who was absolutely wonderful. The music was always on point and he was able to work very well with our very vague details and requests. For the areas we were unsure of, he had a wonderful selection of suggestions for us to choose from.
J · Married on 05/26/2018
Sound in Motion was awesome and worked with me. They were proactive and honest with me when my assigned DJ retired and assigned us a new DJ right away. Logan, our DJ, was a great guy, a lot of fun, and created the exact audio experience we envisioned for our wedding during each part of the night (ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, etc). I am a big audio guy so I had high expectations for our DJ.
Very happy with our experience with SIM. They were an important part in creating ...what ended up being a perfect day.
Danielle · Married on 05/05/2018
We absolutely loved working with SIM for our wedding. Raffi was a rockstar DJ who literally re-played a song for one of our guests who was in the restroom. Coordinating and planning with Raffi was incredibly easy and his work was seamless and impeccable. We would highly recommend not only SIM but specifically Raffi for your DJ and MC needs.
Joe · Married on 04/14/2018
DJ Adam was awesome! He kept everyone engaged, kept us going on track with the flow of things even helping stall when needed lol. Thomas photo operator was also great and kept everyone happy :). SIMS is a great company. User friendly software for online song selection, great staff, seems to really care. Cant say enough about the staff, thank you!!!
Jen · Married on 11/11/2017
We just got married on 3-17-18 and had a very small wedding. We never intended on having a DJ due to our small guest lists but then when we realized how expensive audio equipment is to rent and how much work goes into the announcements, timing of the music and everything we decided to look into hiring a DJ and we are so glad we did!
Andy was our DJ and he was awesome! He really listened to what we did and did not want played and kept the night flowing smoothly. Our guests had a great time dancing the night away and the lights they set up for our reception were fun. If you’re looking for DJ or debating if you need one, don’t look any further, call Sound In Motion!

DJ Raffi did my wedding two weeks ago and it was absolute perfection. We had a very rowdy crowd of 220 people and Raffi facilitated the large group expertly. He had the dance floor PACKED the entire night and kept the energy and fun going from start to finish while, at the same time, he kept everything on time and running smoothly and efficiently. He is never rattled by anything and always keeps his calm, cool, and jovial demeanor while continuing to stay completely professional. Throughout the entire process Raffi was amazing and had us laughing and feeling comfortable. Sound In Motion has a great website that you pay through as well as forms to fill out with every detail, song requests, etc. which made the process really easy for us. I cannot recommend Sound In Motion and DJ Raffi more highly!!
Kelly · Married on 09/16/2017
My husband and I used Sound in Motion as our DJ for our September 2017 wedding and had a great experience. Andrew was our DJ and he did a fantastic job! He played all the songs we requested and was very professional. Everyone had a great time dancing which was very important to us. He also did a great job doing the music for the ceremony and as the mc.
Nicole · Married on 09/09/2017
The entire SIM staff is incredible. Raffi was super fast to respond to every email I sent. Brian (our DJ) was wonderful, super fun, very easy going, kept our wedding moving smoothly, and pumped great jams all night long. Teisha (our photo booth attendant) was so helpful, very sweet, helped my guests pick props/poses, and kept everyone coming back for more. Honestly, I would use them all again in a heartbeat. Thank you Raffi, Brian, and Teisha for making my wedding perfect!
Jillian · Married on 08/19/2017
I booked with Sound in Motion for my wedding. Raffi provided services as DJ/MC. We had a couple of telephone consultations prior to our wedding. Raffi was fun to work with, very lighthearted and he took our preferences into consideration. Raffi coordinated with our parents for their speeches and also was able to coordinate the introductions/music selections for our cultural dancers. Most importantly, the dance floor was PACKED the whole night! Raffi played a wide range of music that catered to the crowd. I still have friends and family telling me what a great time they had that night. There was so much positive energy in the room that night, great music, and everything ran smoothly.
Amanda · Married on 08/05/2017
I am so glad that I choose Raffi and the Sound in Motion Crew for our wedding DJ and Videographer services on August 5th 2017!! From our first meeting, I could tell that Raffi was very passionate about his job- he was so easy to work and had so much useful advise, from years of experience, on how to make our wedding run smoothly. On the wedding day, Raffi was so flexible, catering to ALL on my last minute changes, not to mention hilarious! Our wedding quests absolutely loved him and he had everyone dancing until the very last song!
Raffi also highly recommended a wedding videographer for our wedding, and I will NEVER regret booking a videographer through Sound in Motion! The wedding day went by so quickly and I am so glad I will get to look back on my wedding day forever. Jordan Graham was our videographer- he showed up to the wedding venue and starting filming without any guidance or direction and fit seamlessly in the background while capturing our day perfectly!
Thank you so much Raffi and Jordan, and Sound in Motion, for making our wedding night the best night of our lives!!
Check out our amazing wedding video that we received from Sound in Motion!!!

I hired Sound in Motion to DJ my wedding a few weeks ago. I specifically requested someone who was familiar with 90's R&B, hip-hop, and rap, and SIM definitely delivered. Adam emailed me two months prior to our wedding date to introduce himself as our DJ. Right off the bat he was super professional, as he listened to what my husband and I wanted and made sure to cater the song list to our favorite jams. He was even open and honest, telling us that he would be out of town until a couple of days before our wedding but that he would be accessible via email. As a bride, I was a bit nervous, but Adam responded to every one of my annoying emails within a few hours. I was super impressed! If you want a DJ who listens, is patient, and has a GREAT attitude, Adam is your man! Thanks for making our day extra special, Adam!

We hired SIM to provide DJ, uplighting, and photo booth services at our wedding (venue = Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa) and they were outstanding! Nick was our DJ and made sure the flow of our evening went smoothly. Whenever he came to us to let us know what was coming up next (i.e. speeches, cake cutting, etc.) he never rushed us and gave us time to finish eating, chatting, and enjoying ourselves. The mood in the room throughout dinner service, speeches, and dancing were always spot-on visually (uplighting really helped with ambiance!) and musically, and he crafted his playlist carefully to match our requests. I don't think the dance floor was ever empty once the dance music started, and I received many, many compliments from my guests about how great the music was - all of these guests have very different music tastes too, so we were very pleased!
The photo booth services were also excellent! They designed a special printing strip with a Venetian mask to match our wedding theme and my guests went to town in the photo booth! They handed us the album at the end of the night and it was fun to be able to look through some pictures and messages from our guests that very night!
Over all, working with everyone at SIM was always a great experience - Shawn was always very helpful on the phone and made sure we understood pricing, services, and in general seemed to enjoy being part of the wedding planning process. Their client portal is super easy to use, and they collaborated expertly with my wedding venue and their staff to make sure my husband and I could enjoy our special night!

We loved working with Andy! He was a fantastic DJ and really understood what we wanted out of him as a DJ/MC. The music he played was exactly what we were hoping for and we got compliments from the guests on what a great job he did.
