Bert the owner is an outstanding DJ and I am beyond pleased with my experience with DJ By the Bay for my wedding. Bert provided excellent service from lighting, sound, photo booth, and was an amazing emcee. Every part of the process setting up ...
the entertainment over the next year was wonderful and easy. Bert provided valuable knowledge and experience when it came time. Very prompt to response and offered great suggestions. The organization and planning from his team that day was amazing, extremely organized and prompt given the venue strict timeline. We had a great time and the dance floor was packed until the end. Worth it!

I had my wedding at the Bently Reserve on 11/17/18. This review should have been posted a month ago, but things got a bit hectic and I haven't been able to find the time until now.
First things first, I was really lucky to find Bert through wo...
rk! I recently moved to the Bay Area from the east coast, and I had to plan my wedding in six months. Some of my friends in the bay recommended their wedding vendors, which was helpful (I ended up using one vendor for photography because I Iove her work). However, I was still needed a DJ/MC, lighting, and photo booth services. I picked one of the nicest venues (Bently Reserve) in the city, and it's not easy to work at this venue since there's so many restrictions. Luckily, he has experience working at this venue before, so he knows what to expect and I really like that.
From start to end, he was amazing. I booked him for Dj/MC, lighting, and photo booth services as part of a bundle (less vendors are just easier to deal with). I came to him with pictures of exactly what I wanted and pointed out certain lightings and he was able to accommodate what was requested.
Everyone at my wedding had a great time because the music was flowing. He knows how to gauge the crowd and make sure that guests are having fun. He played certain (not mainstream) tracks that I requested on the spot. My husband really likes his mixing of the music at the reception as well.
My family and friends were also in awe at how beautiful the lighting was. If I had to look back and compare the picture (of the lighting) that I showed him during our first meeting and what my wedding actually looks like, I have to say that Bert's work was a lot better than the picture. The colors went together so nicely.
Lots of cool props! My little cousins absolutely loved them. Even the older adults enjoyed the props. He gave me 3 different colors for photo booth print outs instead of one.
GOING THE EXTRA MILE:
1. He was very helpful in guiding me what to look for in wedding photographers and coordinators, things to reach out to with venue before bringing decors in (ie, candles), which was completely outside the scope of our agreement.
2. He even listened to me vent about my other vendor (drape) who I already paid and booked, cancelled a month before the wedding because my money was not good enough.
3. I didn't have my cell phone with me throughout the entire event and could not take any photos. And because I was so impatient to see my wedding photos (had to wait for a month), he sent me pictures and videos that he took on his phone. He also gave me a recording of my vows during the ceremony and gave links for the photo booth photos right away (I'm talking about the next morning) since my wedding guests were so excited to see pictures!
ALL IN ALL:
He really exceeded my expectations. Aside from all the craziness of wedding planning, I would rebook him in a heart beat for a wedding. I also recommend him to anyone who is looking for a superb DJ/MC, and audio/lighting services for their wedding. Out of all the vendors that I worked with, he's really the best. To be honest, it would be nice if he could be my vendor for everything because I wish some of my other vendors were just as great as he was. I'm a pretty picky person, so I'm surprised he was able to exceed my expectations. He's really passionate about his work and loves what he does. You can't go wrong with that!

DJ Bert was an absolute blast! The music he played had people dancing all through the night - I've never seen that many people dancing for so long at a wedding! His MC work was also great, and kept the event flowing smoothly. Our guests loved t...
he photobooth, with plenty of props, and both physical and digital copies of the photos. The uplighting inside the building really added a lot to the ambiance of the room, and the string lights he hung in the patio were beautiful at night. We were very impressed and would highly recommend DJ by the Bay!
