Coastal DJ & Video were absolutely AMAZING at The Hilgendorf Wedding @ The Grande Ritz Palm in Duck, NC! We met George at the Bridal Expo and he was great to work with during the entire planning process. Our DJ, Julian, was one of the best DJ’s EVER! He was fun, energetic and... Read More played a PERFECT mix of songs. He also had phenomenal DJ Skills; he always kept you guessing about what song was coming next and led into the song with an awesome beat (I am definitely not a DJ but I think he used a turntable to create those incredible sounds and effects; he is very talented!) The placement of the uplighting around the property was FABULOUS. It turned The Grande Ritz Palm into a PARTY! The lights were not overdone and were perfect for the setting. We loved the lighted monogram on the pool/house- such a nice touch for a wedding! Everyone in the South loves a monogram ;)A BIG thank you to George & DJ Julian for a FUN evening! I would highly recommend Coastal DJ & Video for your next event!

Coastal DJ & Video was an absolute life-saver for us! Not only did they provide an awesome set of music and lights to accompany our wedding and after party, but their customer service, fun attitude, and planning tools made them by FAR my favorite vendor for our wedding. Yes, our... Read More BEST vendor. Better than the food, the pictures, and even the flowers. George, with Coastal DJ & Video, provided me with personal calls to make sure everything was in order before our wedding. He also went above and beyond and really understood the mood and music we were looking for during each different section of our wedding. After our discussions, I didn’t worry about the music again at all. I was 100% confident in the DJ, and it was the single aspect of the day that went perfect. Not to mention, the company’s planning tools and online portal was an absolute life-saver! Because of the helpful online forms, music request portal, and extensive timeline creation tools, we had a timeframe backbone to build off of, which was crucial for me as a DIY/no-idea-what-I’m-doing bride. I can’t recommend George and everyone else at Coastal DJ & Video enough. I promise you, you will be glad you went with them!
