As his name would suggest, DJ Forrest knows the secret to being the best DJ possible for a wedding. The owner of Xceptional DJs and Photo Booth in Houston, Texas, has a full service approach to entertainment, but said that the company acts as much more than just a DJ.
A former catering company and banquet hall worker, Forrest has been on the front lines for quite some time.
"We entertain, make all announcements and help plan your timeline," Forrest said, adding that he and his DJs will assume the role of day-of coordinator in instances where one isn't present.
Forrest said that Xceptional is far more responsive and accessible than most of his contemporaries, with a policy of 24-7 phone access.
Of course, not all weddings are created, or planned, equal. It's a detail Forrest and his staff is very cognizant of, as all five of Xceptional's DJs have been with the company for a decade or more.
"We have different DJs for different types of crowds," Forrest said.
The most important attention to detail Xceptional pays attention to is how to ensure the enjoyment of the entire reception, while making sure the bride and groom remain at the center of attention.
Forrest said that this is the secret to great weddings, along with making the crowd feel like they have permission to dance because they will be taken care of.
Photo booths are another great touch Xceptional provides for weddings, with both open and enclosed options. Forrest recommends the open choice, which can accommodate up to 10 people at a time.
"The photo booth is one of the most fun, memorable and interactive things you can do to enhance the fun," he said. "It gives your guests a keepsake to take home, and also helps get your people moving around, which enhance the overall energy in the room."
