PUT YOUR #&^$@$ PHONE AWAY!!!

So some of you may have noticed our post on Facebook this week with the picture below, but I felt it was also deserving of its own blog post. Now to look at it at first glance you notice that people are standing and look genuinely excited to see the bride. You may also notice…

Kristen & Michael 4.8.17

Chris Monaco recently had the pleasure of celebrating with Kristen & Michael on their wedding and here shared a couple of the more personal touches they had: This past Saturday, Kristen & Michael had a “friends” theme instead of table numbers they went by episode and each table had a quote from that episode. They had…

Melissa & Dio’s Wedding 4.8.17

Melissa & Dio’s Wedding 4.8.17

It was truly an honor to be a part of Melissa and Dio Bernal’s wedding.   During our initial meeting back in March, I loved how much fun they were just discussing the details of their wedding and what they were looking for from me.  I knew at that point that they were excited to…

Autism Speaks Fundraiser in Queens

Autism Speaks Fundraiser in Queens

My brother Brian has two wonderful boys.  His oldest, my nephew James, is autistic and having a child on the spectrum has made my brother a passionate promoter and fundraiser for Autism Speaks. He’s created a group he calls “The James Gang” and their fundraising efforts have included walk-athons and, in the last few years,…

Weathering the storm…

Weathering the storm…

This spring, I’m currently taking MicroEconomics as I work towards my Associates and eventual Bachelors degree in Finance. One of the topics we covered was short run vs long run and how a lot of companies will make a profit in the short run but not in the long run. One of the reasons for…

Weekend Recap 4/1

Weekend Recap 4/1

One of the things I find funniest about this industry is how random yet cyclical where exactly I’m working can be. I feel like I go through spurts where I’m either really close or pretty far. Right now I’m in the middle of a block of weddings that are not exactly around the corner from…

Weekend Recap 3/24 & 3/25

Weekend Recap 3/24 & 3/25

It seems every year that the middle to the end of March is always the unofficial end of the wedding off-season for me as I’ve now performed at as many weddings in the last 3 weekends as I have the first 2+ months! This past weekend, I flew the Elite banner (figuratively) all the way…

Alyssa & Kyle’s Beautiful Wedding at The English Manor

Alyssa & Kyle’s Beautiful Wedding at The English Manor

We recently had the honor of providing the entertainment as well as photography services for Alyssa and Kyle at the amazing English Manor. The English Manor is a location we play and shoot at all the time in fact we’ve set up a special page on our website to display some of the highlights of…

#MeetTheMarras

#MeetTheMarras

Having DJ’d for almost 14 years now, I’ve had the honor of working with couples that I actually knew on a personal level outside of just wedding planning, some incredibly well and some just in name. But one thing that does, for me anyway, is it ratchets the pressure level up a notch or two.…

Elite Showcases at Monmouth University

Elite Showcases at Monmouth University

We performed at our penultimate bridal show of the season Sunday at Monmouth University.  We’ve been busy since the beginning of the year, showcasing almost once a week, so it feels good to be wrapping things up.  Bridal Shows are a great way to meet some future couples but they are also a lot of…

Afternoon vs Nighttime Weddings

Afternoon vs Nighttime Weddings

If you were to take a poll of engaged couples, couples in general, or just anyone who has ever given thought to their wedding, and you asked them, “What day/time would you want to have your reception?”, the overwhelming majority would first say Saturday night followed by Friday night and then probably Sunday night. You…

Soundtracks

Soundtracks

I find myself having random thoughts a lot, sometimes directly related to weddings, sometimes just music, but always completely random so I thought it would be cool to express them in this forum so here goes: Often times, DJs will refer to the music at your wedding or any other type of celebration as the…

Love Wins…Always

Love Wins…Always

After reading Mike’s recent blog about how Elite is and always has been not only LGBTQ supportive but friendly, it got me thinking about some of my own experiences celebrating with same sex couples and there was one particular wedding that immediately crossed my mind: I got to DJ for Megan and Tricia back on January…

We’ve Always Been LGBT Friendly

We’ve Always Been LGBT Friendly

  I’m one of those guys who likes to post their political opinions on Facebook because I’ve always loved a good debate.  And thanks to Facebook’s “On This Day” feature I get to re-read some of my posts that go way back.  One of my favorite ones is from December of 2009 when I took…

Jessica & Marshall 2.4.17

Jessica & Marshall 2.4.17

We recently had the honor and pleasure of DJing and photographing Marshall and Jessica’s wedding reception at the American Hotel in Freehold. I’ve included some a few images snapped by Cyndi Roberts of Elite Digital Images and also a little bit of what Dominic had to say as their DJ: Marshall & Jess were such a…
