Planning a wedding around two hectic schedules requires constant communication, and Jim at Direct Entertainment has mastered that skill perfectly! Through many emails, phone and video conferences, and text messages, Jim helped to guide us through our very memorable special day. Thank you so very much, Sam and Angela

Direct Entertainment helped us out with our wedding. They played music that made the parents dance and the kids dance. And we had a really good time. Thank you!

Direct entertainment was so amazing to work with! Their prices are awesome in my opinion. Brian my DJ was very friendly and patient with myself and all of our guests (especially the kids that loved to bug him). I definitely recommend them if you are looking for a professional DJ at a good price.

Hi! Thanks Direct Entertainment and Dan for having a wonderful night for us. We're so grateful. Dan kept the party popping, we had a great time. One of the best things we had, because of the chaos of everything, we we're able to get in all of the requests we wanted but Dan was receptive and took in all of the requests, and really kept everybody and the whole party going on the dance floor. And that really kept things popping. Thank you so much.

This is Mike and Erin; we got married today. Direct Entertainment was our DJ and Photo Booth. Dan the DJ - drop it like it's hot - we had a great time; he kept the crowd dancing. He was able to do a couple of special edits for us that we requested. Everything went off seamlessly. We're more than pleased with everything. Highly recommended.

We were very satisfied with the professionalism and experience of the people at Direct Entertainment. Our DJ, John, was very communicative and receptive to our questions and requests. The music library provided on the website was extremely helpful. If you're looking for great service for an affordable price, look no further than Direct Entertainment.

Tom and Jason are great! Both the dj Tom and the photographer Jason were awesome both interacted so well with us and the guests. Couldn't have asked for a better day. Tom definitely went out of his way to make sure I got everything I wanted from music to getting information out to all the guests. He mad sure everything ran smoothly.He even made sure I got a chance to toss my bouquet last minute which wasn't planned at all. Jason was absolutely amazing. I cannot wait to see the pictures he got. He was everywhere I know he got some amazing pictures. Multiple guests had told me how great he did. He made sure he was getting down quickly to get good angles and then right back up to get more. Not only that but he also made sure to be everywhere not just focused on us the entire night he got people when they weren't paying any mind and that's the best time to get people. Thanks so much direct entertainment for matching us with such talented people!

My wedding day was April.23.2022. I hired direct entertainment for Dj/photography/videography/photo booth. From day 1 I was calling and bugging Jim, and he was the most calm and professional person I've ever talked to. He assured me that everything was going to be great and that his team aim for the best quality! I had several questions along the way and Jim made sure to get back to me in a timely manner. The day of our wedding was spectacular! Lynn the photographer and islam the videographer were the absolute best! Those two went above and beyond!!! I really appreciate everything direct entertainment and Jim did for us! The wedding video brought tears to my eyes! And the photos are beautiful! I am so grateful that we chose them

If we had to do it all over again, we would choose Jim; no doubts about that. Take notes!; that should be part of your wedding vows "We choose Jim. And We'll choose Jim over and over without pause without doubt in a heartbeat..." you get the point.. Having a year to prepare for our wedding, Jim was without a doubt a tremendous resource that relieved a lot of stress off our shoulders. We spoke with other vendors and we chose Jim without meeting him in person. Just by talking to him on the phone, we noticed the high level of professionalism, his great confidence, immense knowledge, valuable communication skills, and his commitment to his business and to us. Jim explained all the services Direct entertainment provides very well, he outlined all the charges without leaving any hidden fees behind, and saved us money compared to the competition. Jim is very prompt in returning your phone calls and answering your emails. The process he follows is very well organized, charges are well structured on the website and you are provided with a questionnaire to make sure all your requests are taken care of. Jim is backed by an amazing team that includes the very proactive, amazing eye for detail Photographer LB Blanchar, the high energy and humble videographer Jerome with his lovely big smile wife Tiah, the photo booth attendant Gaby with her happy personality and the attention to detail driven Loretta with her amazing editing skills. Both LB and Jerome will call you to go over your requests and make sure they take note of every moment/person you want in video/photo. When Jerome called my fiance, he made him tear up by the way he described what he does. Jerome has so much passion for what he does, it really shows. He will make sure to go by each table to record messages from your guests and family so that in 30 years, you can have that memory of them telling you how much they love you. We are so happy with the quality and the shots they captured. We are still in that awe moment just thinking how great Jim's team is and how beautiful and high quality the pictures are and what an amazing job they've done. We have so many candid moment pictures that can only be obtained by having a team of people that pay attention, are observant and don't miss a beat. And Jerome interacting with guests as they walked into the reception venue to capture more memories, and record messages, that was awesome; even the kids loved interacting with him. All the materials Direct entertainment sent have given us all the feels. Even after the event, you have the support from Loretta editing your videos to make sure you are satisfied with the final product and Jim following up to make sure you are happy. I couldn't imagine hiring someone else and not having all these treasures. Anyone may have the camera and the good lighting but this team has all of that plus the right personality, heart, the best skills and more!

This company was awesome to work with. They made everything easy and the DJ (DJ Drew) was awesome! Our photographer Stacey was also terrific. I would recommend them to anyone I knew. Thanks so much for the amazing experience.

Brian was a great DJ and we loved Direct Entertainment. It was exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We recommend Direct Entertainment and Brian specifically. Working with them was super helpful. They were great at communication and getting everything set up. And it was easy and they got our schedule to stay on track.

Direct Entertainment is great! We bundled photo and DJ with Direct Entertainment and the price was unbelievably reasonable for all of what was included and also the quality of the service. The photographers, Stacey and Lisa, were incredible. They worked hard to capture all the special moments of our big day! DJ Tom was phenomenal. He used great judgment with our song request list and balanced it with the requests from the crowd. Everyone was up on the floor dancing the night away! People are still talking about how great the music was. Finally, Jim, the founder of the company is very responsive to emails. Our original DJ became ill the week of the wedding and was unable to come. Jim had a new DJ lined up the next day and got him up to speed. I will also applaud Tom for being able to prep and put on a great show with just 4 days to prepare! Don't hesitate, you get great service and we got DJ and TWO photographers for the price of what most SINGLE photographers charge!

Our DJ, Dan, did an absolutely phenomenal job! He got people of all ages out on the dance floor, and still managed to keep a volume where our guests could talk if they wanted to (just like we asked!). He did a great job keeping the night on track and handled all the little details for us. I've gotten multiple comments from guests about how impressed they were with the DJ! Overall, I was very impressed with both the quality and the price. Keep up the good work!
December 1st, 2021
I had a wonderful experience using Direct Entertainment. It was easy to book everything online and if I needed to talk to a human being it was equally as easy to get in contact with someone. My DJ was GREAT and fit the mood of our wedding perfectly. I'm incredibly pleased with Direct Entertainment's services.
November 13th, 2021
Amazing! Thank you! Great Job! Fantastic Job. Really amazing DJ! Great attention to detail.

Direct Entertainment and our DJ John provided excellent services for our wedding day. The day couldn't have gone any more smooth without their help! We recommend their DJ services to anyone for their wedding day or other events.

Direct Entertainment is a one stop shop for all your entertainment party needs. Super convenient - you don't have to think about it especially if you don't want to spend hours and weeks on doing the footwork to finding the "right" fit or recommendations. They've got great reasonable competitive packages that can be customized to fit your needs and wants. I would totally book them again in the future because my overall experience with them was excellent especially during the pandemic where I had to reschedule my wedding anniversary over and over again. Jim and his team were so kind and understanding through the whole thing. Wayne the DJ made the night so much fun, everyone had an awesome time! I was told "one of the best weddings I've ever been to" so that right there says a lot. By far the best outcome I could have asked for. Jerome our photographer was super cool chill relaxed and made us feel that way too taking photos in front of everyone. Dylan our videographer was the same way cool and chill. They kept us laughing and smiling throughout the night! They all made the day go by pretty smooth, fun and relaxed. The communication between everyone at Direct Entertainment was 5 stars hands down. Oh and then I got a little snippet of the night from Wayne and that was just icing on the cake. I wasn't expecting any footage at all for a few months, but even if it was just a clip. Made my day. It was a great night!
October 23rd, 2021
Music was top-notch. Everyone had a great time, jumping around the dance floor. Thank you!
October 21st, 2021
I HIGHLY recommend going with Direct Entertainment for all of your wedding needs. We bundled photo, video, DJ, and photo booth all with Direct Entertainment and the price was unbelievably reasonable for all of what was included and also the quality of the service. My photographer was incredible, professional, and a huge hit for the bridal party. Our videographer was perfect as she was never "in the way" but still caught every moment we wanted to remember. The DJ was phenomenal. He used great judgment with our song request list and balanced it with the requests from the crowd. Everyone was up on the floor dancing the night away! The photo booth is a huge hit and I highly recommend as well. Finally, Jim, the founder of the company is SO responsive to emails. He always made me feel so secure about the wedding and how everything was going to go. Just an extremely well run company to consider for your wedding. A well oiled machine.

Was a bridesmaid in one of my best friends wedding (10/9). Couldn't of asked for a more beautiful day, ceremony and reception. Thank you to DJ Andrew for getting us moving ALL night, fhe playlist and extras didn't give me much time to change my shoes. PERFECT
October 16th, 2021
Direct Entertainment has been amazing. They followed up with us very quickly and close to our wedding. It was very seamless. We had an amazing experience with the DJ, with the videographer, with the photographer, with the Photo Booth people. Would recommend them again... it's been an amazing experience. It's nice that the DJ, the photographer, the videographer and the photo booth people were all on the same page the entire time. That was key. We didn't have to deal with all the coordination, which was nice.
October 14th, 2021
DJ Griffon took our wedding to the next level! He was professional and helpful from the start and clearly knew what he was doing. He did so many things to enhance the experience, that we didn’t even know to ask for. For example, he played some older, classic songs during cocktail hour but played more current music for dancing. That gave everyone something to like! He also had some great ideas to make sure all the guests were included at the end, before we sent off the happy couple. I had so many compliments on DJ Griffon - he really got everyone involved and having fun. Our dance floor was packed! Jim, at Direct Entertainment is the behind the scenes guy. Due to COVID and postponing the wedding, we hired him nearly 2 years out. I didn’t have a lot of contact with him leading up to the wedding, and that made me a little nervous. We didn’t finish up our part of the playlist and information needed to assign us a DJ, so we didn’t know who would be there until about 10 days out. Again, that made me a little nervous, but Jim had everything under control. He always responded to my questions. You can trust that Jim is on top of things and will give you an amazing experience for your wedding. I could easily say that DJ Griffon was the best part of the day! 100% recommend Direct Entertainment!

Jim, the founder, was amazing through the whole process. Answered quickly and always gave great customer service. I had Stacey as the photographer and she was absolutely amazing. She had fun with us and was great to work with. Brian was our videographer and he was great at being there for all the candid moments, Jim was our dj and he did a good job as well. Everyone was on the dance floor having a good time and loved the photobooth. Overall, I had a great experience and highly recommend direct entertainment! It was financially affordable too! Can't wait to see my photos and videos!

John was the DJ/MC for our wedding venue and he did a great job directing our wedding according to our timeline. He really loves what he does and it showed when he was doing DJ-ing our wedding. He also did a great job encouraging our guests to have fun on the dance floor.
Jim the director was also prompt in his replies to our questions and answered them in great detail, which we also appreciated.
October 10th, 2021
Sal was amazing. He did a great job DJ-ing. He helped us set up. He kept everything organized. He was amazing on the music. Good transitions. He played our cocktail hour music. I couldn't recommend him more.
October 9th, 2021
OI could not believe how amazing this company was. It was absolutely perfect. He kept the party coming. The lights were amazing. The vibe was outstanding. The photo booth was fantastic. Every part of tonight was aboslutely perfect. Thank you very much for providing your services. If anybody is in the market, these are the guys to go to.

I was very happy with my service. I can't wait to see the video and photos. I was happy that I was able to fill everything out with my special request well in advance. I was contacted by each vendor individually to confirm all details and any last minute changes were accomdated. All questions were answered very quickly. There were a couple of bumps but that is to be expected and it wasn't anything that overshadowed the day. I would reccomend booking all of your wedding services with them, it made it so much easier.
October 2nd, 2021
My wedding dj was absolutely amazing! He played exactly the kind of songs I had requested and was so on time. He went right along with the timeline I gave him of the night. The lights were amazing, sound quality superb and overall I am very happy with Direct Entertainment.
October 2nd, 2021
Direct Entertainment and Millie C did an excellent job at our wedding. Awesome job. We will highly recommend him and we thank you very much for all the entertainment today. Thank you for everything.
October 2nd, 2021
So Dan and Direct Entertainment did our wedding and it was awesome. They took requests and they listened to the vibe of the crowd. And you can see how sweaty I am, so it was awesome. Thanks so much Dan, you did amazing.
October 2nd, 2021
Today was everything we could have hoped for. And more. The music was perfect. The video was perfect. The announcements were perfect. It was just a perfect night.
September 29th, 2021
First off loved that I was able to do videography, photography, photo booth and dj all with same company- this made it so much easier than searching for them individually. All of the services were great. The DJ was amazing and really knows how to get people on the dance floor and made for a great reception. He also did an amazing job at the ceremony making everything go smooth at both the reception and ceremony. We got a photo album of all the photos taken at photo booth before the night was over. The photographer would take any pictures I requested and took pictures through the whole ceremony and reception. I can’t wait to see the video and the photos taken. I would definitely recommend this company. Thank you all for making our wedding day smooth and extra special.
September 28th, 2021
DJ Bob was the best DJ I've had or seen in a long time! He didn't push our reception to be too "amped up", which was perfect because it was a Sunday afternoon reception! He called a week and a half before the wedding to confirm every single detail and even offer suggestions on things that I wasn't sure about. I appreciated his time, his honesty and his sweet dance moves! He even signed one of the puzzle pieces for our puzzle guest book, which made me laugh and made me very happy! I will recommend direct entertainment to whomever I know getting married!
September 26th, 2021
Hi Jim! Everybody did a really nice job. Yes, it was a lot of fun.
September 25th, 2021
I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you!
September 22nd, 2021
Dan and Direct Entertainment played exactly what we wanted. He did great at having people enter. Everyone said they had so much fun dancing. And dancing is a huge part of a wedding. Everyone had such a great time on the dance floor. Everyone that had a request, it got played. And it was such a great time on the dance floor creating so many memories.

We had an awesome experience working with Direct Entertainment! Art the DJ was so friendly, experienced, and knew what songs to play to keep the crowd engaged and dancing! They have a quick response time and answered all of our questions leading up to our big day. Will be recommending to all of our friends :)
September 8th, 2021
My husband and I had the pleasure of having Inna from direct entertainment take pictures for our wedding, and we cannot have enough positives to say about her! She listened to the details I loved about the venue and made sure to incorporate them, she was incredibly on point with our timeline without making us feel rushed. She captured every single perfect moment of the night without us even knowing. I cannot give enough praise about this company and Inna in particular, thank you for capturing my wedding exactly how I wanted and being such a great part of my day!
September 1st, 2021
Friendly, affordable and pleasant to work with! Brian did an awesome job keeping a family friendly atmosphere at our wedding. There were a few things I would've tweaked: I requested an anniversary dance and I feel it was a bit rushed and there was no clear "winner" due to the elimination of everyone so quickly. I also wish more young adult song requests had been taken rather than just the kids requests. And our last dance song was incorrect but we still enjoyed the selection :) Overall, Brian was able to get a wide variety of guests on the dance floor to have a great time!
August 31st, 2021
I had immediate response anytime I needed assistance!
My DJ, Mark Hansen, was readily available for questions and requests. He did an amazing job at the ceremony and the reception !
August 31st, 2021
I cannot say enough good things about this company. Everything was amazing. The team's commitment to making our day perfect was phenomenal. Mike and his partner Becky, our photographers, were just great! I cannot wait to see the photos! He gave us a couple sneak peeks and we loved them. I cannot say enough nice things about our DJ Josh. He had people dancing all night and was an absolute blast. He was game to make our trivia dreams come true and was a pleasure to work with. His assistance Tom ran the photo booth and while I didn't get to talk to him much, everyone loved the photo booth and he was so pleasant and accommodating. Such a nice guy.
And finally, the founder, Jim. He is so responsive and easy to work with. He helped guide us on what package works best for our day instead of trying to sell us the most expensive. He checked in and made sure we didn't have questions and was always available for anything we needed.
I am so happy with Direct Entertainment. I can't recommend them enough!

Jim and his entire team did amazing! First and foremost wow! Organized team. Very easy to coordinate everything! Great value for sure! Mike our Dj read our crowd so well , no one left disappointed.

Stacy and Brian captured all moments that meant so much to myself and my HUSBAND !!! I can’t wait to see them !

I got married on July 17th, 2021 in Lake Ariel, PA and had Dan as our DJ. He was great from the beginning to the end of our reception. He made all the right announcements, walked us through everything, took requests, and was so friendly. He really helped to make our wedding day perfect. Thank you so much!!!
July 23rd, 2021
Direct Entertainment did great. Song choices were excellent. Everyone's had a great time. I really have no complaints. I thought there would be songs that are kind of iffy, but it's all been excellent. I absolutely recommend Direct Entertainment to my friends and family.
July 21st, 2021
Thank you for a fun time. Joshua was very accommodating as the rain storms changed our plans. He went with what we had.
He played all of the music we requested.
July 15th, 2021
Direct Entertainment was SO easy to work with! We appreciated the streamlined process and how attentive Jim was through the whole thing.
July 14th, 2021
I booked a DJ through Direct Entertainment. It was all online and their portal was easy to use and to pay upfront. They were affordable compared to what other DJ services quoted me. We got DJ Danno and he was the BEST! He had a lot of DJ experience and he was very easy to work with. Our guests at the wedding loved the music and we loved his upbeat/chill attitude. He knew how to make the night flow well and was very adaptable when we had an unplanned toast (he made sure to get our permission before handing over the mic). 10/10 would book again. Thank you so much!

Brian was super nice and was accepting requests that were necessary. He was great to work with. Only issue I had was after rehearsing how to say the names a couple times he missed pronounced my name (the bride) and 4 ppl out of my bridal party. Also not many songs on my original request list were played and a few songs were repeated. Other than that the lighting and everything was great!
June 28th, 2021
I’m so happy I went with Direct Entertainment. Jim was very helpful throughout the entire planning process and even made helpful suggestions since I had no idea what to really do. He was super responsive and on top of things which was awesome! I was very happy with both my photographer (David) and DJ/photo booth (Brian and his son). David knew exactly what to do and had a plan which was great since I’m not great at planning. David was also very responsive and got back to me right away with any questions that I had. And same thing with Brian. Brian was so helpful and was awesome especially when I had last minute requests and changes! I couldn’t have been any happier with our experience with Direct Entertainment! I also loved that with good service they also had reasonable prices and bundles! I can’t thank Jim, David and Brian enough for giving us an awesome wedding experience.
June 24th, 2021
Our DJ Tim was wonderful at our wedding! His music selections for Dinner were excellent, everyone loved them. He kept the atmosphere great all night and got people out on the dance floor! It was a perfect night for us!!

Half moon bay, CA
Our DJ was fantastic! He was very detailed with name pronunciation and exact start and stop points of my songs before the wedding, which reassured me that the wedding would go smoothly. And it did! There was absolutely nothing for me to worry about. Even during the wedding, our dj touched based with us a few times throughout the reception to make sure his services was what we hoped it was.
We also got a Photobooth which we loved! They were very flexible with our decision to add an extra hour of the Photobooth during our reception! We're glad we did because our guests loved it!
absolutely no regrets with booking them!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Direct Entertainment for my wedding day. Their website was easy to navigate and they provided numerous options. Since they have multiple DJ's on staff you are actually paired with someone who they think will best suit your vision and needs for your event. I personally was matched with a gentleman named Charles who changed the vibe of our entire wedding. From the second he walked into the venue he and I acted like we had know eachother our entire lives. He was attentive to my needs as a bride and most of the time knew what I was going to say before I said it. He knew exactly where to set-up and did it so that the light show made the dancefloor glow hot pink! He truly hyped up the entire wedding party and made the entire night a full on dance party. I could literally go on endlessly about how happy we are that we hired this business and most importantly, Charles. Thank you so very much for everything.
June 15th, 2021
The communication with Jim and Bill was super easy and efficient. Bill was an excellent DJ and timed all of our music perfectly. We even had a medical emergency just as the reception was getting started which he was quickly able to redirect (after the guest was tended to, of course). I would definitely recommend!
June 7th, 2021
I'd like to thank Direct Entertainment for making our DJ choice easy.
June 6th, 2021
Our DJ, Brian, was incredibly helpful in aiding us in deciding the cadence of of our May 2021 our wedding reception. He was very professional but also very personable and subtle when he needed to talk with us which did not interrupt the flow of talking with guests. He stuck to our playlist but also was able to offer suggestions and adjust it according to the age group on the dance floor and the mood of different parts of the evening. We were pleased with Direct Entertainment, especially our DJ, Brian.

Direct Entertainment had very fast response times (always responded within 1 day), well-organized, professional, and well worth what we paid! What also makes it convenient is that DJ, photographer, photo booth, and videographer can all be hired from one company. My wife and I used their DJ and photo booth services, both of which we were very satisfied with. Highly recommended!

Great service, great price! We booked a DJ for our wedding reception and could not be happier with the service provided. We met briefly with our assigned DJ just days before the event to go over all of the details. Bob did an amazing job and was exactly what we wanted. Really exceptional job by the DJ and booking the service itself was stress free.

We booked our dj and videographer through Direct Entertainment and everything was great! Both Chris our DJ and Vlad the videographer were incredibly professional and kind! Chris knew what to play when we weren't sure what kind of mood to set and Vlad captured as much of the day as he could! Definitely would recommend!

Hi, we're Amber and Alex, and we hired DJ DML through Direct Entertainment and they have been amazing; so accommodating, so communicative. It's been an amazing experience. They have helped us so much with the wedding. They helped us plan a little bit too because we didn't know what we were doing. He was a blessing in disguise and we appreciate everything you have done. You sent us out a wonderful DJ. It's been an amazing experience. Thank you so much.

My daughter was married October 23 and we used Direct Entertainment for Photography, Videography, D.J. and photo booth. We loved all the services. Joseph was an AWESOME photographer. My daughter and son-in-law loved him. He was great to work with. Thank you Direct Entertainment for being part of their special day!!!
November 6th, 2020
My husband and I just got married on October 10th, and we defiantly recommend using Direct Entertainment! Jim was great to work with, and made the whole experience as easy and convenient as it could get! Being able to book multiple important vendors all from one company, with their package bundle deals, saved a lot of stress when it came to wedding planning!
October 29th, 2020
Jim was professional and so caring from the moment I spoke with him. I love the personalization of everything! Stacey, our photographer is incredible and so nice! During COVID, we had to postpone our our reception to a later date and Jim kindly helped us settle everything seamlessly. In a time of added stress, Direct Entertainment made everything run smoothly.

Working with Direct Entertainment was a breeze and the costs were very competitive! Jim Firth was great to work with and was responsive through the planning process. Our DJ, Matt, and his assistant were helpful and professional at our reception. They played music that we loved and really kept the party going. We had at least 2-1/2 hours of solid dancing and our guests seemed to leave very satisfied.
September 29th, 2020
Direct Entertainment was very accommodating and easy to work with, especially during a pandemic. Our DJ, Bob, was amazing at following our guidelines and interacting with the guests.

Direct Entertainment provided the DJ services for my wedding and they were wonderful to work with. Our DJ Matt was warm and welcoming and made all of our requests happen down to the littlest detail. He was able to achieve the exact flow we wanted for both our ceremony and reception. Many of our guests reached out to let us know how much fun they had and how much they enjoyed the music. I highly recommend their services and Matt specifically!
September 14th, 2020
I recommend Direct Entertsinment for any special event. They gave us the dream Wedding Day. Our wedding reception was as different as we are, and both David Paul and John Krumins went far beyond what we expected. To say the least-- Direct Entertainmaent was PERFECT. Family and friends noticed the excellence of their service and congratulated us for their great service.
Direct Entertainment worked with us. They answered all our questions and gave us an easy event questionnaire through their website.
thank you Direct Entertaiment for giving us the wedding of our dreams.
September 10th, 2020
So happy we chose Direct Entertainment for our wedding! Jim was fantastic to work with. I loved having all the different package options avaiable. We choose the DJ package including ceremony sound, uplighting and then a photobooth. Everything was perfect! Our DJ Art was so so friendly and professional. The photobooth was also a hit! All our guests raved about how much fun they had. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
September 6th, 2020
You guys are great. You rocked the house. You did a great job. Thank you!

Incredible company and staff!! Everything about our experience with Direct Entertainment was amazing!! The founder, Jim was awesome with providing information and quick to respond with any question or request. Also, we had to change our wedding date and some locations within our venue and Jim and the team were so flexible!! Our photobooth staff, Daniel, was amazing and so fun! Our DJ, Chris, had all the guests on the dance floor, he really knew what everyone wanted to hear! Our photographer, Vlad, was absolutely outstanding!!! He set us up perfect for every photo, he capture everything throughout our reception, he was on top of every picture opportunity!!!! We could not have been happier with this company!!! They made our wedding experience so easy, fun, and memorible!! Absolutely love them!!!
July 26th, 2020
We had a very good time with Direct Entertainment. Dan played every song that we wanted. I had a good time. I had a wonderful time with my family and friends. It was the best day of my life.
July 24th, 2020
Billy did my wedding; he was the DJ. From the start he was professional. He made good contact, and contacted me even though I was a little crazy. Throughout the wedding he was great and kept people entertained. He helped us stay on schedule because I forgot to schedule altogether, but he did great. I recommend him.
July 12th, 2020
We hired our DJ and videographer through Direct Entertainment! Mike our Dj was wonderful and did a great job with our music, he met us at the venue to go over our day prior to the wedding. He was professional and responsive to emails and changes we made. Our videographer was professional as well, called us to discuss the events prior to the wedding. He showed up early for the wedding, we are looking forward to seeing the video!.
Jim the owner is also very responsive to all questions during the whole process. Would recommend.
June 23rd, 2020
We had previously hired a different photographer/videographer for our wedding but after having our engagement photos done, we were unhappy with the service and photos. Due to COVID-19 we had made a number of changes to our plans. Just two months away from our wedding date, I reached out to Direct Entertainment who I found on WeddingVibe. I liked that I could package photographer/videographer/DJ all together and Jim was amazing!! Our wedding and reception are on two different dates, Jim was easy to work with and accommodating to our split dates. Stephanie, our photographer, and Rio, our videographer were lots of fun, easy to work with and felt like part of the family, not outsiders, at our very small, intimate wedding. I look forward to seeing our photos and video and working with them again in a couple months at our reception!!!
May 13th, 2020
Our daughter and husband hired Direct Entertainment for their wedding. It is a great company to work with. The DJ was enthusiastic and engaging. Stacey Hetherington, the photographer, was outstanding, both to work with and the quality of her photos. Using one company kept it simple and affordable.
March 7th, 2020
DJ Billy C and Direct Entertainment rocked the party and made the wedding the best experience we could possibly have. Recommend them to everyone. Thank you so much. We had the best time of our lives. Best night of our lives.

December 4th, 2019
Cant say enough good about this service and the owner Jim who helped from step one! !Completey amazing and Jim was excellent wih answering all my questions and putting me at ease with the process, and was able to work on a tight timeline- believe I contacted him first only a month and a half out from wedding. Both the photographer ( David) , and th DJ (Scott) were AMAZING- super high quality and spent a lot of time answering questions and making sure everything would go as I wanted beforehand. They were seriously AMAZING- amazing, amazing! Thank you to them and Jim for marking our day exactly what we hoped and more!

Our DJ was John and he was very fun and good at reading the crowd. He kept a good mix of songs going and was able to stall when our pictures went over on time. He took requests and dealt with the different personalities really well. During our meeting prior to the wedding he knew what questions to ask and helped me figure out the little details. I'm very appreciative

We had an absolute blast at our wedding in Glimmerglass State Park. Our DJ, Mike Cazzato did a phenomenal job. We had a laid back reception and are not fans of "traditional" wedding music. We gave Mike only a few songs we were looking for, and he did a great job filling in the rest! I could not have been happier or more pleased with the service we received!
October 5th, 2019
We had such a great night. Mike was here from Direct Entertainment and it was the absolute best we could have ever imagined. He took our few suggestion of the kind of music we were looking for and really ran with it and made it amazing. We had a great time!
September 29th, 2019
Thank you Direct Entertainment for helping us celebrate the best night of our lives.
September 21st, 2019

August 12th, 2019

Jason was the best! Everything from setup, to moving from ceremony to reception, and keeping all things moving just the way the bride and groom wanted. It was a wonderful day and he was a pleasure to work with.

July 22nd, 2019
Direct Entertainment was absolutely incredible! They went above and beyond for our crazy a****! They accommodated in every way possible and I highly recommend then for your wedding g. We had Matt as our videogopher who generously stayed late due to technical difficulties and made sure to still get all the footage I wanted. We had Brian as our photographer who also went above and beyond and took his own time to do extra shots as a courtesy. We had Matt as our DJ who entertained all night long with the lighting, music and photo booth which was a hit! They are phenominal!
July 15th, 2019
Our experience with Direct Entertainment for our wedding was incredible! Louis was an amazing DJ and great with communicating with us on what we wanted and our time frame for things. They went above and beyond for the videography and had beautiful ideas on top of DJing. Highly recommended by us and many others who attended our wedding!

December 12th, 2018
This is such an excellent company!! Jim, the owner, is so helpful and very informative. We had lots of family drama and health issues, he was very patient. Never rushed for a decision. I highly recommend Direct Entertainment. Each service was explained and Jim was always willing to take a call. Compare their prices to other vendors and you can't go wrong. It's a win win situation for all. Highly recommend!

October 1st, 2018
I was so blown away with how great everything turned out at my wedding and I have Direct Entertainment to thank for that! We booked all 4 services (photography, videography, DJ and photo booth) and it was not only affordable but we were also so impressed with each and every one of them! I was particularly impressed with our photographer, Stacey, who went above and beyond to make sure every shot was perfect. I would (and will!) recommend booking with Direct Entertainment to anyone planning a special event! You won’t be disappointed!
September 29th, 2018
We wanted to say that Direct Entertainment did a great job. We're very impressed and happy with the way you did our wedding.
September 25th, 2018
We decided to use Direct Entertainment for our DJ and Videographer and couldn't be happier. The founder, Jim, was so easy to talk to and always answered any and all questions I had. They will also work with you on pricing and fitting within your budget. I was timid at first about moving forward with a vendor I would not know who exactly it would be until about a month out from the wedding, however I am very glad that I did. There prices are very reasonable for the amount of services they will provide. The DJ, Bill, called me more than any other service (even in the evenings) to be sure every detail was perfect. I had put together a playlist for him which he stuck to and kept everyone on their feet. Our videographer, Janson, also stayed in touch and up to date on the timeline to know exactly where he should be and when. He was very knowledgable of the equipment he used. My wedding was on a very rainy day with an outside tent reception and both vendors were so kind and accommodating for the muddy mess we had. The rain didn't stop anyone from making the day perfect. I would highly recommend Direct Entertainment - reasonably priced for amazing, quality services!
September 25th, 2018
I was recommended to Direct Entertainment by a friend. First of being unsure because I had never heard of them, I can tell you that it is a great business. Not only was it affordable, the owner as well as the selected DJ and videographer were excellent to communicate with and make sure our day was perfect. I would recommend this business to anyone who is in the wedding planning process in the future!
September 22nd, 2018
Thank you DJ Billy C and Direct Entertainment!
September 9th, 2018
I can't praise the level of professionalism that was provided by the Direct Entertainment team enough. Jim was overseeing the major details of the events, but David (our photographer) and Brian (our DJ) had flawless execution. I really appreciate David and Brian's ability to work with us due to our unconventional wedding/reception style. We have photos and memories that are perfect and will allow us to always remember how incredibly well our wedding turned out.
August 15th, 2018
We chose Direct Entertainment for our DJ and Photography services. They were great from start to finish. It was so simple to book, Jim founder, was super helpful every step of the way. Once the DJ and photographer reached out to me, I was blown away. They were so friendly and patient! Everyone felt comfortable with our photographer, Jim. He was there to make sure we got what we wanted and kept us laughing so everything looked natural. Josh, the DJ was amazing. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. There was literally no one sitting down. He made sure everything went smooth throughout the night, and the entire process. I have gotten so many compliments on the DJ and how he catered to everyone and delivered music for everyone. From ceremony to last song of the night, perfect. Thank you to the team at Direct entertainment for helping to make our day so special! It was a night to remember for everyone there! We would recommend to everyone!
July 27th, 2018
Direct Entertainment was amazing. They showed up and they showed out. I am so excited to look back on our wedding day and look at all of the memories we created. And all of the loved ones that were here to share it with us. Shout out to Direct Entertainment. We appreciate you guys for coming out. You did an awesome job!
July 23rd, 2018

June 23rd, 2018
Direct Entertainment was our DJ and they did an awesome job. They made it super easy from the beginning. Called us a couple times to make sure everything was good to go. Talked to us after to make sure everything was good to go before we came in. They made it super easy and stress free.
June 23rd, 2018
From Donna, the mother of the bride:
It went really well. I loved working with Direct Entertainment. Their website is amazing. You can enter all the songs that you want, and the genre of songs, and you can set up the timeline. It was so easy to use. And then Chris the DJ came out and he was amazing. So I recommend Direct Entertainment to everybody.

June 12th, 2018
I have only ever planned one wedding, my own. I had everything on track and ready to go when 2 months before my date the DJ canceled. Panic set in. I googled Wedding DJ found Direct entertainment. I called and a person answered right away. I spoke with Jim and he understood the situation I was in and was more then willing to help. Their website allows you to set up exactly what you want. Music, lights, video, they have it all. I was assigned a DJ who sat down with my wife and I. He wanted to know what music we wanted him to be the MC. He was there for us. He also assured us that if he was sick or if his equipment broke they would have a backup ready to go. The DJ called the week of to insure everything was on track and ready. The night of everything was great, the lights the music all amazing. 10/10 would recommend
June 11th, 2018
I booked a videographer service for my June 2018 Camp Themed Wedding through Direct Entertainment. Wayne Douglas, a.k.a. “The Video Guy” was hands down the most down to earth and sweet videographer we could have ever wished for. He just came right in (after only speaking on the phone one time), and knocked the video service OUT OF THE PARK! Speaking with him in interviews felt like talking to an old friend. He truly went out of his way to make our day the most special event of our lives. His talent to capture the moment is incredible and I will recommend him a thousand times! 5 star Service!!
June 9th, 2018
Thank you guys so much - we had the best wedding. And we love Direct Entertainment and Billy C our DJ. It was the best time ever. Thank you!

Direct Entertainment was the only company that I could find that actually provided a video of the entire day, not just a 10 minute highlight video for over $1000. The owner, Jim, was very responsive to my emails, and our videographer, Janson, was great! He called me a couple weeks before the wedding to touch base and go over the timeline of the day so that he made sure we got everything we wanted. That really put my mind at ease. At the wedding and reception he seemed to be everywhere he needed to be, and he even had time to get well wishes from guests at the wedding to put in our video as well. I can't wait to see the final product!
November 8th, 2017
Direct Entertainment did a fantastic job with our wedding. Great customer service and you can’t beat the prices. Thank y’all so much for helping make our day so special!!

October 20th, 2017
We used Direct Entertainment for our videographer. Will was assigned to our wedding. He did a wonderful job. He was in contact with me two weeks before the wedding and the night before checking in. He went above and beyond my expectations and we could not be happier! We can’t wait to see the finished video!

We are glad we decided to go with direct entertainment. we didnt foresee needing that "backup dj" option, but we are glad we had it... because of hurricane nate, our first DJ had to cancel, so Jim (the owner) provided us with a backup DJ. so everything went off without a hitch. Thanks a bunch Jim!

Great service for a great price! The DJ we ended up with (Wayne) was absolutely amazing. We've had so many compliments from our guests about him in particular. He was flexible about using playlists I created on Spotify and filling in with his own music based on our personal taste. Everyone loved the music and said it represented us perfectly! The photographer we were given (Rich) was fantastic as well. Both communicated with us about our ideas and expectations prior to the wedding date and were easy to work with on the day of. They were beyond our expectations! I definitely recommend Direct Entertainment!
October 8th, 2017
DJ Charles/squeaky did a wonderful job! We couldn't be happier, ceremony and reception music was everything we wanted! Great price for packages and very professional!
September 29th, 2017
I used direct entertainment videography services for my wedding. The videographer Alex was very nice and professional. He was communicating with me before the wedding to make sure he captured all the important moments of the wedding. Jim the owner was always available and quick to answer all my questions. I have not received my video yet, but I cannot wait to see it and also the footage!
September 27th, 2017
We had our wedding this past weekend and used Direct Entertainment, which was recommended by my friend who has used them at her wedding a few years ago.The DJ was excellent. We received many compliments on the music played and the DJ Himself. Our DJ was Aaron. He was professional and energetic. He contacted me about 2 weeks before the wedding to answer any questions we had and to go over everything we needed him to-do. Even previously dealing with Direct Entertainment was so easy. Their website is very easy to use and we were able to pick a list of songs we wanted to be played and he was able to play them all. I highly recommend using this service & recommend Aaron
September 11th, 2017
Chris did a wonderful job taking care of us and or guests, and was very flexible with any day-of changes needed. Jim was fantastic to make sure we were taken care of well.

I couldn't be more happy with the amazing service I received! Not only was Jim amazing, the videographer Alex and our photographer were both absolutely perfect! Everyone was super fun, professional & truly made our wedding day amazing! We also had Jim set us up with a photo booth, everyone raved about how much fun the photo booth was & pictures were instantly available online and in hand! Jim takes a lot of the weight off planning a wedding by setting up these aspects of the day. I would recommend him and Direct Entertainment to anyone seeking a wedding or any other event!

We wanted to let you know that we are absolutely THRILLED with all of the edits you made. The video is wonderful, it has a flow to it, and highlights all of our favorite moments. We especially appreciate the extra music by our vocalist and how much more brief a lot of the longer parts. We love how different portions were faded in and out so that it was smoother as well. You did a beautiful job capturing the day and we will be sharing with all of loved ones to relive the day with them also!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for perfecting this video for us. With it being just 16 minutes now, we can watch it any time!
If you would let me do so, and I do hope you will, I would love to send you a gift card for one of your favorite restaurants for you to enjoy a meal on us for all of the extra efforts you personally put into this project. I would just need a few of your favorite places to choose from, and an address to mail it to ( I may be able to end one electronically from some places).

Direct entertainment was reasonably priced and the online access was great. The DJ was exactly what I was looking for and played the music I requested and the music my guests requested. He was interactive and professional.

I hired Direct Entertainment as my videographer for my wedding. The planning of what I wanted in the video was very thought out in their required online video scenelist. This was convenient in that I did not have to worry about calling someone and relying on them to take notes on who I wanted in the video and what parts. It was also nice in giving me an insight on what to film so I know what to expect in the final video. Because they have planning forms online, I felt it took away from the in-person communication because they had everything they needed from me online. This might actually be an awesome thing for some brides since you don't have to worry about contacting someone, but I felt I didn't get a chance to really connect with the videographer.
The day of my wedding, the videographer was right out front filming as soon as my limo arrived. During the ceremony and reception, he was in many different locations throughout the night and was always nearby during the important events on the schedule. Overall Direct Entertainment did a great job being in the right spots at the right time and I am very excited to see the finished product as I am sure it will be everything I envisioned!

I want to thank Direct Entertainment for their service and support. They kept in touch with us during the whole process and made things easier in being prepared. From the type of music we wanted played to the video and photo shots we wanted. Even more impressive was when we were falling behind in some aspects of our wedding, the DJ, videographer, and photographer were able to adapt quickly and made the best of it without any instructions. I would definitely recommend Direct Entertainment for anyone's event specially their wedding.

I absolutely loved direct entertainment. I used their videography services for my wedding. The staff was very nice and responded quickly to any questions that I had. The guests at my wedding even commented how professional the videographer was. I cannot wait to see the footgage!

I would definitely recommend DIRECT ENTERTAINMENT DJ's-Photo-Video to anyone who is getting married. Not only are the services affordable, the quality of service was excellent. They made my wedding on 4/18/15 very special.

We had a WONDERFUL experience with Direct Entertainment DJs! A DJ was specifically selected to cater to our needs, and we had the perfect experience with him! He played a wide variety of music to meet the musical taste buds of both our grandparents and college friends, was not in our faces or intrusive, but stayed in the background and worked the atmosphere in a way that had everyone up and dancing! One thing to know when working with the company is that you go through the manager with some of the preliminary information, but then your specific DJ may have more equipment or music than it may seem when filling out one of the initial forms about the requests for the event. Our DJ had all of the specific songs that we wanted played, brought, set up, and took down his equipment, and was one of the friendliest people I'd ever met!

We had Tom at our event. He was very professional. I feel he captured all our moments and we didn't even know he was there. He was great!
October 11th, 2014
Our DJ was great. He was very flexible working with the set up of our outdoor reception. His performance as master of ceremony was flawless and gave us and all of our guest a very memorable night. Using the company's automated website was pretty easy, but other than our DJ had no interaction with the company.
September 27th, 2014
Photographer and dj were phenomenal. Both called me multiple times leading up to the wedding, making sure I had no questions or concerns. The dj performed the music at the ceremony, so he came to the rehearsal at no additional charge. The photographer was absolutely amazing; was able to handle my un cooperation wedding party, and all of the children in the immediate family. The photographer had amazing ideas for different photos to take!

I used Direct Entertainment for my wedding this past weekend and used both their DJ and Photography services and I couldn't be happier. We had DJ Evan Gordon and my guests danced from the minute dinner was over until the reception ended. We had Martin Reardon as our photographer and he was great, very professional and knowledgable. Direct Entertainment was a great company to use for our wedding. They were very easy to work with and flexible and also very affordable. I strongly recommend using them for your next event!!
September 20th, 2014
We used Direct for our DJ three weeks ago. Miguel did an awesome job! They were on time with everything on the timeline that We had decided on before hand. There wasn't as much interaction with the guests and getting them on the dance floor as I had hoped, but I didn't ask for it either. They still did a great job!!
September 6th, 2014
No DJ service compares! Our DJ Evan was absolutely perfect and interactive with guests! He was flexible and made our day PERFECT!!!
August 9th, 2014
Our videographer was absolutely fantastic! He was always near during big moments, but was never "in your face." He worked well with our other vendors and was very personable. I would recommend this service to anyone!

We used Direct Entertainment for our wedding video. Direct Entertainment was great to work with and their videographers went above and beyond to ensure our video captured everything we wanted. We had Perry and his team as our videographers and they were an absolute pleasure to work with. Jim coordinated everything from Day 1 and was a pleasure to work with as well. We received our wedding video within 3 weeks of our wedding and could not be happier with how everything turned out. I would highly recommend Direct Entertainment to everyone. Thanks!
July 12th, 2014
We were on a budget and so I searched online through quite a lot of videographers and honestly, we couldn't be happier with our decision. Gary from Direct Entertainment was very professional and friendly. Jim, the owner, was always available to answer my questions. I decided to upgrade to the blu-rays and they are really nice! I would definitely recommend!
July 5th, 2014
Fantastic all around. Prompt, courteous, and flexible. All at a great price.
July 4th, 2014
We want to thank Brian and his wife the videographer and photographer and DJ Gordan for making our daughter Katie's wedding special. All three were very professional, courteous and well mannered. The photos and video's were absolutely beautiful. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! DJ Gordan kept the dance floor hopping all night. The reception was to end at 11:30 pm, he had to call it quits at 11:30.
June 28th, 2014
Both Dj and video guys were great, very flexible and offered great suggestions. Have not received the videos back yet, but I'm sure they will turn out good.
June 21st, 2014
We chose Direct Entertainment for out wedding. We absolutely loved them! The guy we worked with was very nice and easy to get along with. I was very impressed that he came to the rehearsal to get a feel for what the wedding day would be like. He did a great job at capturing all of the important moments of the night. I would definitely recommend them! :)
June 14th, 2014
Great! Played all requested songs.
May 24th, 2014
Direct Entertainment was easy and flexible to deal with. The prices were great too!
Our DJ, Evan Gordon, was wonderful! He was very nice and professional. He played appropriate music at the appropriate times. He was flexible with a few last minute changes! He got everyone up and moving on the dance floor. We got a handful of compliments on him. He was great! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ!
October 12th, 2013
Both DJ and photographer were great! They were easy to get a hold of before hand and the DJ helped tremendously with figuring out reception order. Photographer was always around at the right moments. And the owner of the company was so helpful throughout the experience!
October 5th, 2013
The DJ was awesome! He was very flexible with the schedule and made sure that everything ran smoothly. He was able to accommodate for last minute changes on the day of the wedding. He kept the party going throughout the entire night! We had a blast and would recommend the company and their DJs to everyone!!
October 5th, 2013
This company was both promt and professional when we contacted them. They continually worked with us and our busy schedule. They were easy to reach throughout our planning process, and remained kind and supportive of our throughout our wedding process. A few days before the wedding the videographer that was to tape our wedding, contacted us to ask us our preferences, review all the information we submitted was correct, and to introduce himself personally. He remained behind the scenes throughout our wedding and reception, capturing all the footage that we wanted, while still remaining out of sight. This was an excellent company to work with and we would recommend them to all our family and friends!
September 28th, 2013
The DJ, Bob, was great! He was in contact with me prior to the wedding about our special songs, was on time and responded well with our guests and requests. The only thing that wasn't perfect, which was just a miscommunication, was that he played the wrong song for the mother/groom dance. No one noticed besides myself and the groom's mother and everything else was perfect!
September 1st, 2013
We used Direct Entertainment for our wedding on 9/1. We could not be any happier. The DJ we are still receiving compliments on. He was respectful to all our guests, us and our requests. The same goes for the Video and Photo guys. Think the Video guy was Gary. Both VERY professional and accommodating to our every request. Would highly recommend all services.
August 3rd, 2013
The videographer was excellent! He contacted us before the event and knew exactly what moments we wanted to capture. He was polite and not intrusive at all. Most of the time I forgot he was there. We haven't seen the final product yet, but I am sure it will be great!
July 12th, 2013
Our videographer Dave did and awesome job for my parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal! He was very professional and courteous! He did an awesome job and I can't wait to see the finished product!!
June 22nd, 2013
Excellent job!!!!! Highly recommend!!!
June 8th, 2013
Both the DJ and Photographer were excellent, proactive in reaching out in advance of our wedding, dedicated and energetic the day of, and thoughtful during the event. Neither required direction, taking the initiative to make our event the success it was, and creatively seeking opportunities to improve on the plan they'd set in motion prior to the wedding.
July 28th, 2012
Great quality and value. I had an issue with my video after the fact, and they were so quick to respond and fix my problem. I had new copies of my video within weeks. The videographer on the day was so professional and friendly. I'm so happy I have this wonderful video that captures our most special day!

DJ - Our assigned DJs were Chris and Carrie. When I first returned Chris' call, I was a little worried because he seemed unprepared to ask the questions he needed and a little harried. I contacted the company, and the owner, Jim, responded quickly and assured me that Chris was a good DJ and had high customer reviews. I was very happy with their DJ services - they stayed to my preset schedule for the reception as much as possible, but were also able to bend as needed when events needed switched around or ran over. They also dealt with a blown transformer very well and kept the party going.
Video - Our assigned videographer was Gary. He gave me confidence in his abilities from the beginning during our phone conversations. We had a few guidelines to stay within for the preacher's comfort with video during the church service. He assured me he would meet with the preacher and follow all guidelines. I have two complaints with the video service. First of all, Gary stood directly in front of my husband to video my entrance into the church. I missed that special moment of the first time he saw me in my dress because all I saw was the camera and my husband trying to pear around Gary. Gary also went around and had people "say something to the camera", which I did not want and have had several wedding guests comment/complain about.
Overall, I am happy with my service from Direct Entertainment, their responsiveness to my (multiple) e-mail inquiries and concerns. I was just disappointed with Gary being in front of my husband during the entrance and the guest interviews.
