The experience i had using TSPDJ for my wedding was amazing. Steve did a awesome job and i couldnt have asked for anything better. He was able to provide all of my music, and bring his equipment to an outside garden venue. He played a great variety of music and was very interactive with all my guests, including playing fun little games. My husband and I couldnt have asked for anything better,best DJ i have ever seen!! ūüôā

Best DJ ever from Sara & Jarod Read

Sara & Jarod exit the church on their wedding day.

There isn’t a doubt in our minds that Ruethai Steve Allard isn’t just the best DJ’s in the world but one of the coolest people that you could ever meet. There isn’t a person in this world that we would of trusted more with our ceremony and reception. His professionalism is far exceeding expectations and his personality and presence on the microphone is second to none. When we started the process of planning our wedding he was the only guaranteed must have after we saw him at another wedding. Personally we don’t know how Ruethai can always be at the top of his game it like he is some sort of machine. Thank you Ruethai and hopefully we will see you at our friend’s future weddings so we can party it up again real soon.

DJ’s Placement – Does it matter?

Suggested room layout.

This is my first official blog on my site. I hope you find this information useful.

Every week, I meet with couples and discuss their music, coordination of the event, lighting, theme and venue layout. The layout of the venue is important and one that many people overlook. Often, the layout is designed with a “look” or a “feel” attempting to create a magical, spectacular venue. From my experiences, the layout will definitely create a mood, but it can also create a flow… meaning how your guests interact with you and how they move about the venue, which also contributes to their fun.

I suggest a simple layout as demonstrated by my illustration. With the dance floor near the middle, it will allow your guests to see all the action from the first dance to the bouquet and garter toss, the toast and the cake cutting. Once the cake is cut, the cake can be moved to the side for dancing.

During dinner music(red area), it is played at a lower level, allowing for your guests to visit and chat. They won’t have to shout over the music. When the main dancing begins, the speakers are¬†pointed towards the dance floor creating enough volume to fill the dance area while at the same time, directing the sound away from the guest’s tables. Your guests will be able to continue to visit, although, many will gravitate towards the dance floor (if you know what I mean).

Finally, THE BAR! Where does it go? Whenever it’s placed in an adjoining room… that’s where people go. When it’s in the same room as the dancing (maybe towards the corner), people will linger around the bar, but still be part of the action. For example, At my 20th High School reunion, the committee members and I told the staff at the Peach Tree Golf and Country Club we wanted the bar in the same room as the dancing.¬†Although their staff was reluctant,¬†they obliged and¬†it kept everyone¬†in one room, therefore contributing to the event’s¬†success.¬†Too often, when the bar is in seperate room, people hang out at the bar and the dance floor could be busier.

Ruethai Steve Allard was our DJ for our wedding, and we were absolutely blown away! He had everyone in the room dancing. My husband and I couldn’t leave the dance floor the whole night we had so much fun. He made it the wedding of our dreams! The most amazing part of it all, was looking around and hearing that it was our guests most memorable time as well. They don’t get any better than him. I will always recommend Ruethai Steve Allard for a DJ!!!
