So I went to a bridal show and loved a DJ that I met.
Marcel is local in the Hacienda Heights area even though our wedding is in La Verne, CA.
He's great because he has been doing this for 27 years. It's him and his friend, they both show up at the wedding, and the remaining balance isn't even due until the NIGHT OF THE WEDDING while all the other guys wanted it like 2 weeks before and they couldn't always tell us who was going to show up (they wanted to do a video conferencing instead)
These guys are great, Marcel invited us to his home (I love that fact that he wasn't "getto" like a few I have seen at weddings).
Anyways, he worked with our budget. He's normally $800 for the first 4 hours and $200 each after but he's charging us $1000 for 6 hours. That includes the ceremony, cocktails and reception in 3 different locations on premesis, 3 different set ups.
