Wedding Professional Wednesday: DJ Carl Entertainment

When we at Joie de Vie Weddings & Events sit with our clients to plan their day. The Entertainment and sound is a major concern for almost all of my couples. They want to ensure that they have a true professional for their entertainment. The DJ/Entertainer/MC must be a person that can articulate and enunciate the names of the parties. They must also be able to read the crowd and determine what music would be best for that crowd. Our next featured professional for Wedding Professional Wednesday is DJ Carl. Carl has been a DJ for over a decade and is sought after by many across the nation for his services. I have had the opportunity to work with Carl several times over the last few years. No two events have ever been the same when he was directing the entertainment. Carl definitely tries to stay ahead of the trends and changes in the wedding industry. We are very pleased that he took a moment to participate in our Wedding Professional Wednesday Series.
