A Chat with A Budget Jockey DJ
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I have performed at least 700 ceremonies. I wrote and published a wedding planner with all the ceremony choices in it and I am also a mobile DJ. I'm warm and funny and comfortable talking in front of people.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I had a friend who performed weddings, so I watched one and decided it was a fun thing to do. I had just started as a DJ (1994) so it seemed like a natural fit.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to watch two people in love say their vows. I love knowing that I'm helping couples have beautiful weddings.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I always encourage grooms to carry handkerchiefs. One groom insisted that he was stoic, but carried one anyway. When he saw his beautiful bride, he let out the world's loudest sob of joy. He thanked me profusely after.
