Ceremony Music

Our DJ will be on site for setup early and have the music started as your guests arrive for the ceremony seating. We will take care of all your ceremony music from the processional, signing of the register to the recessional.

Ceremony sound and microphones

Wireless mic, handheld or lapel, are available should you want to upgrade from the corded microphone included.

We have a lot of experience with various settings, indoors, tents, outdoor country and lakeside and can recommend the best options to ensure you have the best sound for your special moments.

Cocktail Music

Following the ceremony we will have the music queued up for the cocktail hour so your guests can mingle with a nice mix of background music. Should you have a separate location for the cocktail hour and need the DJ to relocate that is not a problem.

Grand entrance songs

Moving into the reception space the first highlight will be to announce the bridal party and you, the newlyweds!, as you enter the hall to all the cheers from your loved ones. We can provide any choice, or combination of, songs you’d like and are open to any fun suggestions you may have. If you’d like the DJ to also take care of announcing everything for you just let us know.

Dinner Music

After you have come into the reception space and are ready for dinner your DJ will have the dinner music of your choice ready and ensure a smooth transition between the announcement or speeches and the music throughout the meal. Making sure at the same time that the sound level is well balanced and levels from the microphone are right so all your guests have a wonderful experience.

Formal dance songs

Following the meal it is now time for one of the most special times in your wedding day. We provide music for the bride/groom, father/daughter, mother/son, bridal party or any combination you require. We can make a pre-mixed track should you have some fun surprises in store for your guests. We recommend not having the dance floor lighting on at this time so that the photographer can get the best images, unabstracted from the lights. Should like to have any smoke machines or other extra equipment please inquire.

Minimum of two lights with multiple effects plus a laser will be provided. Depending on the space we will have the lights on a stand or placed where they would give the best atmosphere for the party.

Bouquet/garter music

Let’s get all the single ladies on the dance floor for some fun! The DJ will have everyone excited for this thrilling moment and we’ll also take care of the garter music following.

Dancing time!

CaptivSounds is not your typical wedding DJ service; our DJ does not sit and press buttons on a laptop while letting songs just play through a playlist. This is a true turntable DJ company; we use creative mixing techniques and strive for innovative DJ styles that stand out amongst the rest. Working with a wide variety of music tastes, weddings require a trained ear for mixing the variations of songs necessary. We never stay within one genre and always play all requests, keeping your guests happy on the dance floor is our passion.

Our DJ package includes 2 powered Yorkville speakers on stands, over 1000 watts of power made for a group of up to 300 people. These speakers can be setup anywhere and are made for durable reliable everyday use. From outside at a remote location for a ceremony to a large hall, with minimal cables needed our setup will have a clean look that you would expect at your wedding. The system running the music is going to be two technics 1200 turntables with a multiple channel mixer playing off Serato, this is the current standard for all major club DJ’s.
