  • Music and photography were our two biggest priorities for the wedding. Craig immediately caught our attention because after our first meeting, he was completely on board with our picky song selection and large no-play list. He was willing to work with us on whatever we wanted, no complaints whatsoever. He has an organized way of tracking the music you want to play - by key moment songs such as processional, recessional, first dance, father/daughter, etc. My favorite part about working with Craig was that I could create a Spotify playlist with all the songs my wife and I loved - giving him a better idea of the music we’re into. If you’re curious, we’re into classic ‘80s & ‘90s music, early 2000s rap and R&B, today’s EDM, and more. Craig was comfortable with all of it. During the wedding, he played all the songs we wanted and added in ones that complimented ours perfectly. He read the crowd and was able to keep everyone engaged and dancing through the night. He took requests ... Read more

  • My husband and I didn't think we needed a DJ. We had heard way too many stories from friends/family, friends of friends that the DJ had taken over the wedding and had their own agenda. Then we found Craig. The heavens opened up and shone down and Craig appeared and we never looked back. He was amazing from the start - super easy to work with, very communicative. We submitted lists of specific songs we wanted - and when we felt we were submitting too many "please play these songs", I provided a genre or theme of music (my husband and I are 90s pop kids, etc.) he ran with it and it turned out AMAZING. I called an audible and changed the walk down the aisle music at the last minute and it was seamless. We asked for a last dance with no one in the room but us and he helped kick everyone out when no one was listening lol and we kept the reception open an extra hour and he went with it, no questions asked. And to top it all off, he then sent us a list of the songs he played, in order... Read more

  • Craig is an awesome guy and a great DJ for our wedding. We first met him over video (due to a Portland snowstorm), and could tell right away he was cool, had a great personality, and a professional attitude. Wish we had gotten to spend more time with him - as he is a very low maintenance vendor, we hardly saw him on our wedding day. However, he worked hard behind the scenes setting up for music, photo booth, and found a moment to come say hi and congratulate us. He got our guests on the dance floor all night! The photo booth was a hit and definitely worth adding on-our guests are still talking about it. Thanks Craig, great job!

  • We originally weren’t planning on having a DJ at our wedding, but Craig is awesome and we are so glad we changed our minds! We had already booked his wife as our photographer (Dionne is absolutely amazing, if you need a photographer definitely check her out) and so they gave us a discount for booking the two of them together. The two of them are a great package deal, they are both so sweet, and do amazing work. We’ve all been to those weddings where the dance floor is dead. Craig does an incredible job of reading the crowd, and I think every guest was on the dance floor at least once at our wedding. He was great about playing songs from our requested list, and mixing in other songs that would appeal to everyone. Also, his additional equipment such as uplighting really made a difference with the ambiance and appearance of the venue. We are so glad we hired Craig as our DJ, it made a huge difference to have someone be the MC and help run the timeline, and make sure that everybody was... Read more

  • Simply put, Craig was fantastic. From the initial consultation all the way through the end of the wedding day, we really did get exactly what we hoped for. Professional, but easygoing, and didn't have any ego about his role. I've been to weddings before where the DJ had an "I'm a professional, I know what should be played" attitude. Craig on the other hand, did a great job of walking the line between giving us all the things we wanted (and nothing that we specifically banned), and still reading the room as the night went on. We ended up paying to extend the dance portion of the reception because everyone was having such a great time (a request Craig was happy to accommodate), and even with the extra expense, it was quite reasonably priced. We had an absolute blast. Couldn't recommend him more highly! Thanks Craig!

  • Craig did an absolutely phenomenal job as a DJ/MC for our wedding. We could not have been happier with his expertise, professionalism, and attention to detail. Even from our initial meeting with Craig, we got the sense he really wanted to get to know us as a couple and asked great questions to get a feel of what we were thinking in regards to music/vibe/additional services. We appreciated his warmth right from the get-go. Craig's pre-made music customization forms made it very easy for us to plan out our playlists for each moment of the day (prelude, ceremony, first dance, cocktail, dinner, etc.) Craig responded quickly to any questions we had about set-up and additional services. We wound up going with one of his photo-booth packages which we loved! Was a really fun addition to the evening and allowed guests to come home with an extra souveneir. In comparison to other photobooths we researcehd, Craig's was far more affordable and the set up was smooth and easy. On the day of, ... Read more

  • Craig is a fantastic DJ and was great to work with throughout the process. He is extremely responsive which I appreciated, and he's just super nice which is a bonus! My mom texted him the day before the wedding and asked him to play a certain song as a surprise singalong for us, and Craig totally made it happen. He DJ'ed an amazing dance party for us and I am very very pleased with the whole experience!

  • Craig was the absolute best! We did all our coordination over email. He sent over a great form for the ceremony and reception details and was even able to read my TERRIBLE handwriting! As for day of execution - flawless! He did everything we asked and more, all while being super nice and laid back. I highly recommend him. We did a simple DJ package. Comes with a number of things, but the custom initial monogram was so cute and such a nice polishing touch. Book him!!!

  • Craig is probably the best DJ I know. I am a wedding planner, so I get to meet a lot of DJs and he is great. He is so kind and makes a good MC and plays great music. I met him at a wedding and then I had him do my own wedding as well. He is flexible and easy going which is super helpful, especially when you're stressing out. We had a party of a wedding because of the great music. I would highly recommend Silicon Forest Entertainment!

  • Craig and his wife were amazing! They went above and beyond what I ever expected from a DJ and photo booth! Craig made things so easy, we met up and talked about everything he offers and we decided to book him later that week, I sent him the list of songs we really wanted a few days before our wedding, and everything else was kind of up to him and he did not disappoint! Everyone was dancing and have a great time at our wedding! The lighting was absolutely beautiful and he worked with me, my husband, our photographer, and our officiant the day of to make sure everything went smooth. He also used a confetti "cannon" and coordinated with our photographer to set it off for a picture perfect moment with all of our guests surrounding us! His wife was in charge of the photo booth and did an incredible job! All of our guests loved the props and the sequin backdrop was incredible!

  • Many DJs can play your music at your ceremony and reception. Not every DJ can respond to the crowd and update music selection well, and even fewer can command a room as an MC without dominating the atmosphere and absorbing all of the attention in the room. Craig was a great MC who kept the evening's schedule moving, while also being flexible to a fluid timeline. He did a great job of announcing toasts, getting microphones to people, gathering people's attention for special dances, cake cutting, etc. He was professional and warm but didn't steal the spotlight. He was wonderful!

  • Working with Craig for my wedding was an easy and great experience! He has a laid back, easy going personality which resonated with us and is very professional as well. He kept the dance floor going all night and everyone has raved about how much fun they had! We had several specific, unique songs we wanted for some of our key events and Craig was able to accommodate with no issues. He also provided/set up sound at our outdoor ceremony site that was away from the reception site. We also booked his photo booth (he provided a backdrop, props, custom photo strips, with an easy to use touch screen system) which was a HUGE hit with all of our guests and we have had so much fun looking at all the photos in our guestbook (we used the printed photo strips to tape into our guestbook. Digital copies are provided as well.) We are very happy we choose Silicon Forest Entertainment as our DJ!
