  • Carl provided DJ services for our son's wedding and rehearsal dinner in July 2015. He was extremely professional, well organized and focused for both events. His preparation was superb, and the evenings flowed smoothly thanks to his expertise and easy going manner. The music was appropriate and varied to fit the many different musical tastes of our family members and the dance floor was packed all evening! Carl was instrumental in making the weekend a wonderful success. We highly recommend him. In fact, we already have him booked again for our daughter's wedding in 2017!

  • Music and lighting has always been a passion of my husband’s so of course when it came to picking out vendors I left that part to him. At the time, I had no idea how much of an impact Carl and his team would have on bringing our entire wedding weekend together. From day one, Carl made an effort to get to know James and I both individually and as a couple, he was genuinely interested in learning all he could about our relationship, families and wedding party. He helped us to create our perfect wedding reception and made sure that everything went just as we had planned. My husband and I had so many ideas going into our meetings and he worked with us to make them even better. We ended up going with the biggest package offered, and after seeing how everything turned out would do it all over again. Not only did Carl and his team create a beautiful atmosphere both at the rehearsal dinner and the reception, they also brought a sense of ease to the entire weekend. The dance floor was packed ...

  • Having worked in the Syracuse wedding industry I have had the pleasure of knowing Carl for many years. He was the first person my wife and I called when we started planning our wedding. From the beginning, I had no doubt that Carl and his team would do a fantastic job. During the planning stages and even the day of, Carl and his team would be one step ahead of my wife and I down to the minute details. He de-stressed and simplified the planning process which was important to my wife and I with our busy careers. Starting at the rehearsal dinner, Carl and his team provided music, hosting, and video coverage. He found a way to have even our grandmothers laughing during the shoe game. The day of the wedding his team met us at the church to provide video coverage of the entire day and then followed us to SKY Armory where we had our reception. The lighting design including the monogram was fantastic and his subtle changes in the uplighting color enhanced the mood as the evening progressed... Read more

  • Carl was extremely flexible, full of great ideas, and professional during the planning process. On the day of the wedding, I felt at ease knowing that Carl and his staff had everything under control. He was able to accommodate last minute changes and read our guests to know how to keep the party going until the last minute. I couldn't be happier with our experience.

  • I have nothing but amazing things to say about Carl and his team! He works with you to create a wedding you want. He and his team are completely professional and so much fun. I didn't just get a DJ i got a DJ, a wedding coordinator, lighting design and a friend. I highly recommend him to anyone!

  • WOW! Carl did some calligraphy work for signs/table numbers/etc. for my wedding, and I could not have been more blown away with his work! He was able to work on some unique surfaces for me, and everything turned out beautiful. He even did most of the work while we watched! He has a very quick turnaround, and definitely went above and beyond my vision. I would highly recommend to anyone!

  • Carl Naples….oh where do I begin? My husband and I have had the opportunity of getting to know Carl over the past year and a half. My husband and I are wedding professionals ourselves, and we have seen our fair share of "wedding DJ's." Carl and his team are un-comparable to any other professionals in the DJ industry, and grouping him and his team in the same category as other DJ's is simple not appropriate. He is the most impressive wedding host that I have had the pleasure of meeting. His techniques as a wedding host are tasteful, and spectacular. Carl and his team went above and beyond to make our wedding not only look magnificant with their lighting, but selected music that made both me and my husband tearfully happy during our reception. If you want a unforgettable experience for all your beloved family and friends, hiring Carl and his team is not even a question….it's the answer!!!

  • I know this is cliche, but where do i start? i will start by putting my personal e-mail address right here: [email protected] I am doing this because any review i write about Carl or his company/crew will still not measure up to how he made my life...and wedding day...truly unbelievable. My husband and i got engaged on may 11th, 2014. We both knew we wanted to get married in september of 2014. Also, if you're wondering why it's taken me so long to write a review, it's because after our wedding and many celebratory events...i accidentally broke my right hand, so let's just say typing was very hard!! Anyways, after we were engaged, i, like any other woman, immediately starting getting on-line and seeing who does what the best in our area...but also suits my needs....(i say my needs because my husband is the most laid back man and literally told me to do everything myself...and like the control freak that i am...i did). I know carl will laugh reading this because of how well he k... Read more

  • For me and my now husband, finding a DJ was one of the most important aspects of planning. The music for our 'Best Day Ever' was crucial to bringing our entire concept together. From the very beginning Carl and his team made us feel comfortable and that our vision was truly possible. They worked hard not only to make us very happy but also to ensure that all transitions were seamless and that there was absolutely no stress for us! We can't thank them all enough for everything they did and making our wedding wonderful!!

  • Carl helped so much with most of my wedding. We met 4 times in person, he called to help keep track of things, kept in touch through text message and facebook. He provided all of the lighting for my ceremony, and all of the entertainment. He connected me to my photographer, and helped me with my venue. He worked with me on payment as my husband and I ran into several rough patches financially. As well as when my grandfather passed he was understanding and allowed me time to contact him back regarding plans. Some nights he would stay up late just so I could get him my music list, the venue's number to help set a meeting time with the venue owner. He was patient when helping to plan my agenda and left room for last minute changes. He exceeded my expectations! My Ceremony and Reception were both at Mexico VFW. The ceremony was outside. When I got there for the ceremony I found out there was a graduation party as well in the pavilion. Carl played all the songs and provided the eq... Read more

  • Carl and his team at DJ by Design were absolutely fantastic! Our planning process was a bit on the stressful side, due to some issues with our Venue, and Carl took over to ensure our day was flawless. We said from the very beginning we wanted it to be a huge celebration and party, and had a somewhat non-traditional timeline for the day, including having our cocktail hour before the ceremony. Any ideas we had, no matter how out there, Carl figured out a way to make it happen seamlessly, including coordinating with our photographer and other vendors to make sure the day went off without a hitch. We enlisted their lighting services, and our ballroom looked absolutely beautiful all night. The music for our ceremony was unorthodox, and played perfectly. But by far the most amazing hit, with all our guests, was the use of a drone for aerial video taken during the cocktail hour and ceremony. Most had never seen one used at a wedding, and it was amazing!

  • Very nice and easy to work with. Quick response time and was on time. Price is slightly high and he brings a bunch a assistance with him that don't do announcements or play any music, perhaps they are just a set up crew.

    responded with the following comments.

    Not sure who this anonymous client is, but I'll address their words nonetheless. A staff paid enough to make a living doing what we do is precisely what it takes to have a wedding day start on time, be quick, efficient and pleasant to work with. I failed this client utterly if they truly can't see the value in what we provided. My additional crew of 2 or 3 are responsible for so much that is often invisible: coordinating with vendors behind the scenes, timing entrances at the ceremony, opening doors for introductions, helping guests to find their seats, and so on. If we are handling video, they are on hand to assist with second and third camera angles. When we provide lighting they are fine tuning colors and intensity between segments. I promise you, in their absence, none of what we are typically well-reviewed for could be accomplished well, if at all. They are also trained to remain out of view. So I am not sure why or how their presence was a factor that would contribute to a lesser score. Why would I pay for help I didn't need? As regards price, this is something that depends on the client. For many, couples are used to spending as little as $500 for someone to play music. But with the level of responsibility riding on the success of weddings, being in two places at once (ceremony sites 30-45 minutes apart with travel time) and paying a crew to work a 10-14 hour day on average, plus multiple planning meetings and travel expenses (all of which are INCLUDED at no extra charge) you can see why our prices run higher than most. ...But what we provide for what we charge is more often met with elation. One of our September brides who paid for our highest package raved about how much she got for what she would have otherwise expected to pay DOUBLE! So while this client may have struggled to afford what she needed (which I am sympathetic to) I don't for one second believe our pricing to be anything other than right on par with what we bring to the table.
