Services Offered
The following services include four in-person preliminary meetings, on-site assistance at your wedding rehearsal, and full musical services and oversight on your wedding day.

Words of Wisdom
“Words of Wisdom” is a DJ directed activity that allows your guests and loved ones to share their relationship insights and understandings. Guests are asked to write a few “words of wisdom” on the cards which have been placed on each table. Mr. Peterson will read from selected cards. The advice on your cards will be as varied as your guests; some will be funny and some will be sentimental, but all of them will bring a personalized romanticism to your reception. (We suggest you keep your “Words of Wisdom” cards in a memory book.)

Because not everyone is comfortable speaking before a group, you may choose to have some speeches or dedications pre-recorded. Working with Harvest Moon Studios, we are able to record personalized messages, add background music and eliminate the stress. We have previously recorded dedications from distant relatives, thank-you’s to the bride and groom’s parents and surprise messages of love. One of our favorites is a special thank-you to be played during the “father-daughter” dance.

Love Stories
Each couple is unique, and each wedding is a celebration of their romance. Your professionally written Love Story begins with the day you first met and shares your romance with each of your guests.  From your first date, to your first kiss, to the day you knew this was the one, your Love Story invites your guests to share in the love you feel for each other. The Love Story is very special and unique. It is told right before your first dance and is very memorable to your guests.
