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!

All I can say is that George was awesome! My wife and I are from Boston and we didn't know much about the Outer Banks when we decided to get married there. We went through a number of sites and came across Coastal DJ and Video and we decided to give them a call. After my wife... Read More spoke with George she knew this was the guy, and she was 100% right. Our wedding was on the beach and we were both worried about wind and whether or not the guests would be able to hear what was being said or played. George assured us that he would take care of all that and our guests wouldn't miss a beat. He nailed it. Additionally, my wife and I had a ton of special requests for George, from the different entrance music to the father-daughter/mother-son dance, to our very last song and George handled it like a pro's pro. He was awesome. Our guests loved our wedding and the music played a huge part in creating exactly the day my wife and I had envisioned. We cannot thank George and Coastal DJ enough.

I can not think of a better DJ for my wedding than George. Right from the beginning, I felt extremely comfortable with George. He was very responsive to any of my questions and concerns, and personally called me to talk about my wedding timeline and any requests I might have for... Read More the reception. Coastal DJ has a user-friendly web site that allows you to pick and chose any songs you would like to be played, and George was great at helping arrange all the music for the reception. My wedding reception was a dream come true, and that was in large part to George. He played all of my requested songs on my timeline, perfectly timed all of his announcements, and most importantly, got everyone up and dancing. I had a range of ages at my wedding - from kids to older adults - and everyone was dancing for hours. I cannot give enough compliments to Coastal DJ - working with George was fantastic and I give him my highest recommendation.

We used Coastal DJ and Video as our DJ for our Ocean Isle Beach wedding at Southern Comfort Beach Home. DJ Casey was our "official" DJ for the event and everything was PERFECT (which is something I never thought I would say about my wedding). From the time I first inquired... Read More with them to the actual event I was impressed with their personal touch and professionalism. I always received a response in a timely manner, they added a personal touch to my wedding, and Casey was able to read my wedding guests to a "T" and provide an experience not only for me, but for them as well. They gave me a platform to add songs, subtract songs, and make changes all the way up to the day of my actual wedding. I was put in touch with my DJ (Casey) a few days before my wedding and was able to speak with him about what genre of music I like. To be honest, I love music... all different kinds...and Casey was able to speak with me and calm my fears about having to pick specific songs for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing - because let's be honest... I had a lot of things going through my head! He conjured up the perfect compilation of songs for each portion of our wedding and included the few specific songs that I did pick out :) It was absolutely awesome and everyone had a great time! They were so nice and accommodating and I would absolutely highly recommend them to anyone in search of a great DJ and an amazing time!

Yes, our... Read More BEST vendor. Better than the food, the pictures, and even the flowers.

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.
