We interviewed one of our favorite DJs to work with this past week, Nina Vispetto, General Manager for All Events DJs. We have worked with this company for numerous weddings over the past years, and they never disappoint! Their keen attention to detail, fun personalities and ability to rock the house down at every single wedding, are just a few reasons why we love All Events DJs.
They never fail to create an amazing atmosphere for the bride and groom, and guests during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. They have the years of experience needed to read the room and understand what song the group wants to hear next. We love them, and thank them for always being a top-notch wedding industry professional! We asked them some questions about the industry, their own company, and their own take on advice to engaged couples thinking about wedding entertainment.
Q: What is All Events DJs?
A: All Events DJs is a full service entertainment company providing DJ, Lighting, and Photo Booth services to Weddings & Special Events. At the core of our company values is a high level of customer service to our clients. We believe in providing an experience customized for each individual couple. We offer a full-time office staff who are always available to assist clients throughout the planning process.
Q: How did the company get started?
A: Victor has been a DJ for 25 years. He decided to make the switch to weddings & private events and I (Nina) had been working in the Wedding industry for several years. In 2011, we started the company out of our home with very few staff members and zero clients! We knew our dedication to quality services and customer service would lead us to success and the company quickly took off! We moved into our office in 2015. Our company now averages about 150 Weddings per year! It’s been amazing to watch it grow and we attribute much of our success to our amazing team!
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: Our company was founded in November of 2011. Last year, we celebrated 7 years in business!
Q: What services do you provide?
A: We provide DJ Entertainment, Event Lighting such as Up Lighting and Monogram Projection, Photo Booth services, as well as Ceremony music and sound.
Q: What should couples think about when searching for DJs?
A: Couples should find a company they connect with and feel comfortable that they will provide a reliable service on their wedding day. Look for a company that values your input and will accommodate your requests and personal style. 85% of wedding guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding reception is the entertainment, but usually 5% or less of a couple’s budget is dedicated to DJ services. Couples should consider allocating a portion of their budget to a high quality DJ company, as the DJ provides the main source of entertainment for their guests.
Q: What is one thing you wish couples would do more of when planning their wedding?
A: Remember that the wedding is about the couple, but the reception is a celebration for the guests who took time to attend their special day. The reception should reflect the couple, but also keep the guests in mind as their enjoyment is also important. When it comes to DJ services, we recommend that couples choose a variety of music that will appeal to the full range of guests at their event by choosing music for all ages and not prohibiting songs that are crowd favorites!
Q: What is your favorite part of wedding days/your business?
A: We love working with couples over long periods of time and hearing their vision for their ceremony & reception. Seeing it all come together on their Wedding day and being such an integral part of the success of their event is very rewarding.
Q: What should potential clients do in preparation for meeting you?
A: Prior to selecting a DJ, couples should consider what services they may be interested in that a DJ company may offer such as additional lighting for their venue or a Photo Booth. They can also begin thinking about the “vibe” they are looking for at their Reception as their guest list starts to come together. Ensure they are allowing room in their budget for entertainment services and avoid shopping for the lowest cost.
Q: How many events can you do in one day?
A: We work as a team of DJs and can accommodate three weddings per day. This leaves us with additional staff in case of emergencies. The staff members assigned to a wedding will be dedicated to that one event and put their full attention to the couple’s special day!
Q: Anything else you’d like to share about your business?
A: Our company has received over 500 five-star reviews online and we have been the recipient of the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award for the past 7 years. We offer discounted rates for Friday, Sunday, and Off-Season Weddings. We have an office in Fuquay-Varina where we love to meet with clients and can showcase all of the services that we offer.
Q: What sets your business apart from others?
A: Customer service! Clients often compliment our quick responsiveness and attention to detail. We value every client and event and treat each event as if it were our own. We are fully dedicated to the success of our client’s events and go above and beyond for them whenever possible. We have a talented team of DJs and event staff. Our team is flexible, always prepared at events, and our DJs are excellent at reading the crowd and being able to entertain all crowd types.
