I ask all couples all of the time: "What the some of the things that you want to take away and remember from your entire wedding day?" --And almost always --one of the most common answers is that they want both themselves and their families and friends to walk away from a fun wedding experience and dance he night away to fun music at their reception.
Knowing that my couples still talk about how much FUN they had on the dance floor and activities planned is so fulfilling! When I receive social media post notifications, inbox messages, text messages, or post- wedding phone calls to thank thank me for an INCREDIBLE WEDDING, this is gold. I love hearing that you talk about your wedding day and all the time with your friends and family.

"We are still in complete awe of our wedding. DJ Mike killed it in every category. His music selection, energy, MC skills, communication… all above and beyond. He helped us bring our wedding ideas to life. He went as far as to create a special remix for our first dance - combining two completely opposite genre songs into a friggin’ masterpiece. I had many guests tell me how impressed they were with our DJ. He constantly had everyone out of their seats and dancing their butts off. It is day 2 post wedding and my legs are still sore from all the dancing I did lol. I would highly recommend DJ Mike and his services."
So Cal DJ Pros is ran by one person, me, Mike. This means NO MIDDLE MAN. I deliver the skills of being an Open Format DJ – meaning I can play every genre of music. I have my own style that makes me a unique DJ – sometimes wild and always professional. When I am in my zone, I am a Party Rocker!
I enjoy crowd-reading and getting the crowd involved either by singing along to a favorite song or playing another banger (this keeps the energy on the dance floor). This ensures your guests will have an amazing time throughout your wedding reception.
I live mix at weddings all of the time; Whether it is a fun remix or edit, be ready to party to familiar songs and some never before released remixes that are only found at So Cal DJ Pros. This makes your wedding different, filled with high energy, super fun, engaging crowds and large smiles from everyone on the dance floor.
Greetings Friends! Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding date. My name is Reverend Mike. I got ordained 7 years ago with the solemn promise to marry anyone and everyone that is in love and ready to proclaim that love for the rest of their lives together.
I want to hear how you met your significant other, and why you believe that they are THE ONE. Depending what type of ceremonial service you would like, I can perform something simple or something creative, and illustrate your perfect love story for your guests to enjoy on your wedding day.
As a person who believes in Marriage Equality amongst all, I am proud to service the LGBTQIA+ Community as I have been for the last 7 years as an Officiant. As your Officiant, I will perform any type of ceremony you choose, whether it is religious or non-religious. Remember, Love has no boundaries, no color, no religion nor orientation. Love comes in all forms.
Here is your chance to read a little about me, before submitting a form and scheduling a consultation with me, so I promise this should be fun and interesting. Can I host an unforgettable wedding reception that you will talk about for years on end? ABSOLUTELY! Can I write you a wcustom love story that will make you laugh and perhaps cry with excitement on your wedding day? MAYBE! Are we vibing yet? HECK YES!! LET'S GET STARTED!
I view every one of my couples never as clients, but as friends. By your wedding's conclusion--I may just walk out no longer just a trusted wedding vendor for future weddings, but a cool, down to earth guy, who just gained two new friends.
My promise to you is that I will work with you through every step of the way. Throughout our many wedding planning and scheduled meetings, I will deliver and create the ultimate So Cal DJ Pros Experience for your wedding day.
Whether you choose to hire me as only your Officiant or your DJ or in some cases, both, I will bring you an unforgettable experience. The information you will provide to me during our meetings in combination with my knowledge in music and wedding tradition and my interactive DJ and (MC) Emcee skills, I will create something fun, next level fun, and unique just for YOU. Don’t settle with ordinary. Let's strive for greatness.
When I’m not rocking out on the dancefloors, I enjoy time with my fiance, sometimes just enjoying a chill weekend or traveling, nerding out out with my Star Wars friends, or working part time for that mouse with the giant castle at the center of it's park (come on by and say hello if you have a pass).

"If we could give Mike more than 5 stars, we would! From our first time meeting with Mike via Zoom, we hit it off. We hired SoCal DJ Pros as DJ, MC and Officiant for our wedding, and we’re so happy with our wedding day experience. During our scheduled meetings, Mike was always organized and attentive to our needs. As officiant, he included personalized touches which he took inspiration from individual meetings to encapsulate our love story. As MC, he worked synchronously with our coordinator and made sure everything ran smoothly. And of course, as DJ, he played our favorite music and even gave us the chance to surprise our guests as DJs for a couple songs! We’re very thankful for Mike for making our day special and we know he would do the same for anyone who chooses to work with him." -Jander C.-
"Mike went above and beyond our DJ/MC expectations! We really didn’t know what to expect, but from the beginning Mike gave us 5 star service! Answered any and all questions, was readily available and when it came to the day of, he blew us away. Our guests loved the songs played from the beginning to end, no one wanted the night to end! Thank you Mike, for making our wedding night so memorable! " -Candace R.-
"DJ Mike came highly recommended by our wedding venue and he definitely delivered on our wedding day! Not only is Mike a pro at what he does, but he makes the whole planning process a breeze and a very personal experience. Leading up to the wedding, Mike was very detailed and spent the time to understand our needs. He was willing to put in the time to get things just right for us. On the wedding day itself Mike really got our guests pumped up and the dance floor was never empty. Mike covered all our must plays and read the room perfectly to keep the mood lively and excited. Don't bother looking around elsewhere - book DJ Mike for a memorable wedding!" -Matt P.-
"My bride and I had the honor of having DJ Mike help us with our Vietnamese-American wedding this past weekend! He was extremely attentive to detail throughout the whole planning process and brought out so much fun and excitement during our reception. He did a great job working in our cultural traditions throughout the night. Also, when we were planning, he helped us design a detailed timeline, and made amazing cuts for our grand entrances and first dances. Overall, he was super helpful with his wisdom and communicative throughout the whole process. Something we particularly loved about DJ Mike was that he took our huge lists of song requests into thoughtful consideration. It was so meaningful to hear our favorite songs at all the perfect times. He was really attentive to the mood and vibes at every moment of the night! A lot of our guests told us that their time on the dance floor that night was one of the best they’ve ever had 🥺. Thanks DJ Mike for an unforgettable night!!!" -Peter C.-
Answer: I encourage you to be as involved as you would like to be! While most of my couples do not always provide a full 150 song playlist (if you choose to do so, let me know); if you plan to select genres of music and provide some MUST HAVE favorites, you can do that too! I pride myself in listening to my couples, their requests and respecting their input and wishes, while providing additional suggestions.
A: Yes, I require a deposited fee to be paid to secure your wedding date. A signed contract & a deposit or retainer in the amount of $500.00 secures your wedding or special event date. This $500.00 deposit/retainer goes towards your overall balance. Digital confirmation will be sent to you upon payments made. Payments can be made via cash or electronically on Zelle.
A: Absolutely! I am very flexible however you would like to pay for the services and/or rentals you choose to book with me (So Cal DJ Pros). Take the time you need, as long as your balance is paid off no later than 14 days before your wedding or special event date. For date extensions, please inquire with me directly.
A: I recommend the earlier the better (typically between 12-18 months before your wedding or special event date is most ideal). This will allow us to effectively plan your wedding day with ease.
A: You can call me directly, send me a text or fill out a contact form (on my website). If you found me on Instagram or Facebook, you may message me directly on there too. I typically reply to all messages almost instantly, if not, within a 12 hour turnaround time. Please let me know whether you and your fiancé prefer to meet on a Video Call or for an In Person Starbucks Meet Up.
So Cal DJ Pros is operated by one person, me, Mike. I am very capable of performing as many as 100 weddings in a given wedding season. Let's have fun, and let's create some unforgettable memories together.
A: So Cal DJ Pros obtains liability insurance certificates daily for all wedding event venues that request it (from $1,000,000 up to $2,000.000). Ask for more details.
A: To answer this question fairly, it is situational. As a DJ, I typically do not, unless I will performing two weddings back to back in the same venue. However, as an Officiant, the possibilities are more likely. Considering that my ceremony services can be as short as 15-20 minutes and as long as 40-ish minutes in a given day, I can handle going to multiple locations throughout the day to marry you.
ABSOLUTELY!! Your wedding guests are there to enjoy time with you on the dance floor and if they request something that will get the crowd moving, I am all for it. Of course all songs undergo the following: Checked for availability, Scanned for a decent segue or transition and Cross Referenced that it is not on your DO NOT PLAYLIST.
A: A tip is always an appreciated gesture. It is not included in your final invoice nor is it mandatory. If you enjoyed the DJ Services or Officiant Services, feel free to do so via Zelle or Cash; this is completely up to you.
A: I can adjust your wedding or special event invoice at our last planning meeting and in some cases on the date itself. If you choose to on the day itself, please ask me as early as possible to check on availability.
A: I take the time to get to know each of my couples personally. Throughout our planning process and meetings, we will talk in detail about your music interests and desires to enjoy on the dance floor and specialities for your timeline events and activities. This will ensure I know the vibe you are going for and not take guesses.
