"PHENOMENAL!!! Book Jared Wade now, he is beyond worth it!

Jared was so, so much more than a DJ for our wedding. He provided guidance and feedback based on his experiences to make our wedding amazing. Jared's attention to detail during meetings and the getting to know us sessions (double date night-observing our interaction as a couple) helped create an event that was customized to us. When we were having trouble picking our reception entrance song Jared listened to our ideas, used his creativity with our uniqueness and was able to help us pick out the perfect song and perfectly memorable reception entrance. He made sure that we were at ease with plans.

Jared took the time to run through our ceremony multiple times to make us as comfortable as possible. You see, Jared married us too, he performed our ceremony. Again, Jared's attention to detail created our perfect wedding. He added wording and phrases specific to us. He even made my wording goof seem not so goofy. Not only did we love Jared, our family and friends did too. Throughout the reception many of our guests came up to us and asked how long we have know Jared. He fit in so well and knew us so well that it was like he was family. Jared took care of everything for us, including, detail to sound. His personal interest in sound equipment resulted in extremely high quality sound and music both indoor and outdoor throughout the event. He went above and communicated to all the vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page and made sure our timeline would be followed. During the wedding he mingled seamlessly with family and friends, kept the reception fun and everyone dancing, hit all my requests of a timeline and created the best night ever!!
Thank you Jared, for everything you did for us.

What makes Jared Wade Entertainment different from everyone else?


1: Training

I take a great amount of time to learn, grow and educate myself in new trends and evolving myself as weddings evolve.  I do that through continual training online and in person, with in and out of state training.
Sometimes I am teaching, and sometimes I am the student, but I am always learning.


2: Planning

My cloud based planning suite is available to you from day 1.  You will be able to log in and start planning your big day from the get go, and you'll be able to do it from any phone, tablet, laptop, desktop or even through my official mobile app... available on Android and Apple devices.  This is just a tool though.  You will still gain access to me DIRECTLY, and not through an office manager because this is my full time career.  


3: Master of Ceremonies

Relax as your MC, me {smile}, with 14 years of experience and training, creates the magic of your reception by taking your guests through an evening of fun, creativity and personalization, all about YOU!  You also receive the best when it comes to having the right person behind the microphone.  I have created, and specialize in a Hosting and Communication style called Structured Conversationalism®.  It's a style that focuses on merging the audience and VIPs together in an engaging process.  What this does for you, is your guests feel more welcomed and want to stay longer.  What it does for them, is create a warm enviroment where, when they leave, they leave happy with positive things to  say about your wedding celebration!!

4: Time

It sound silly to some, but most DJs glance over your wedding the day before, or even the morning of.  Not me.  I dedicate 30-40 hours of planning and preparation time to make sure that everything I am taking care of is perfect and ready for you and your guests.  This time is on TOP of the hours your hire me for.  
It takes time to write those scripts and love stories my friend.  To do it right that is. :-)


Laura & Daniel

"Jared was amazing for our wedding! He is way more than a DJ. He is an DJ, entertainer, and wedding facilitator. He was very communicative when in the wedding planning stages. He provided guidance when it came to the timeline of our day and advice when we were stuck coming up with ideas for certain things. Then on the actual day, he coordinated with our caterer, photographer, videographer, to make sure everything ran smoothly and let my husband and I just enjoy our day and not be interrupted. He incorporated a version of "The Newlywed Game" for us to play that was so much fun. We received so many compliments from our guests about him. I cannot recommend him enough. If he is available, book him."

Cocktail Hour Speaker

Sometimes additional speakers are needed to fill the spaces where Cocktail Hour will be held at. This isn't a problem at all for my QSC K8® Speakers! They have a wide dispersion that allows for a large group to clearly hear them, even when they are far away. This is the same brand and type of speaker that I use for my Ceremonies, and receive nothing but kind compliments about the sound! I can bring as many that are needed, but normally for a Cocktail Hour, 1-2 are normally more than enough. I will also bring a small MP3 player loaded up with your style of music choice for everyone to listen to.

"DJ or Wedding -Coordinator?!
My husband, I and all of our family LOVED Jared!

Not only is he very well organized, caring, comforting and on TOP of all he's doing, he pretty much gave us more "help along the way", when it came to planning our big day, as the people from our wedding venue did!

We'd recommend Jared as a professional DJ
and Person!

You can not afford, not to afford him!"
