It’s not like gay clients are trying to pay with gay only money.
I’m sure money that "the gays" give you can be spent on anything. In fact, Roy McCaulley with Crystal Entertainment , another Kansas City based DJ company who is almost as good as us, used his gay client dollars to invest in new DJ equipment. He doesn’t recall the stores asking if he received the money from “a gay” either. Netanya Stroud of Netanya's Pix (another wedding photographer) used her gay client dollars to pay her car payment. And you know what? Mazda is still letting her drive her sweet Mazda 5.
I know how hard it is to ask a vendor if they’re okay with a gay wedding because I too was once in your fabulous shoes. I also had to ask vendors if they were willing to work with a gay couple. It can be terrifying.
If you want to work with a company that is comfortable with gay weddings, or who can direct you to vendors who support your love, contact us. We’re happy to help.
It's close to miiiiiidnight and something evil's lurking in the dark.
First things first, we’re the realists. We know that a lot of couples try to save a buck by DJing their own wedding with an MP3 player.

Dear brides, grooms and undecided,
As your friendly wedding DJ’s, we feel it's our duty to thank each and every one of you who have hired a wedding planner or recruited your bossiest co-worker to run your wedding.
Last week, Becca and Kaye fired shots at DJs and we let them tear us apart, then build us back up in “6 things your photographer notices about your DJ.” This week, DJs fire back and delve into the 7 (positive and negative) things they notice most about photographers.
Now, just as they were fair by not naming names for the bad DJs, (to protect the guilty) we won't name bad photographers either. We sat down with Roy McCaulley of Crystal Entertainment (A KC Wedding DJ who is almost as good as us) and Mike King of Mic King Music & Events to ask what he noticed most about wedding photographers. We had to agree when they said,
Wedding photographers are skilled in seeing all the things. Their eyes are trained for catching those pivotal moments that occur at weddings. When the father twirls the bride. When the groom kisses the bride’s neck. When drunk groomsmen try to do the worm and end up busting their chin open on the dance floor.That's just part of the reason 90% of couples hire a professional photographer and not just your Mom’s coworker snapping shots on her “explosively” awesome Samsung Galaxy Phone. But professionally trained and skilled photographers notice more than those little moments. They also notice how professional your DJ is...
Last week we graced you with How You May be Sabotaging Your Wedding: Part 1 , and even though we'll probably have a gazillion more blog posts on this, we continue this week with How You May be Sabotaging Your Own Wedding: Part 2.
We left you with the shocking fact that you may be doing TOO MUCH wedding planning. So, naturally, to begin this week's list of sabotage:
