When was the last time you heard someone say, “Boy, the chicken at that wedding was phenomenal. I can’t wait to attend another wedding for some more chicken!” Seriously, people don’t talk about the chicken…they talk about the experience. They talk about the music that was played, the fun they had at the event and the memories they will never forget.
I am the face of DMR Wedding Entertainment. Let me tell you who I am, what I do, and how I create “The Soundtrack to Your Wedding” that’s perfect for you and your guests.
I’ve been a DJ since 1997. The story of how I started out in this craft may be different from most. It all began in Chicago in the late 1980s. My uncle, who was a father figure to me, started a wedding DJ and entertainment business. I looked up to him and wanted to be like him. The day he invited me to be his assistant was a very special and memorable day. I happily accepted and started learning everything he could teach me. We had many special times together and he taught me so much about customer service, the art of timing, and mostly about life.
I’ll never forget the day when my uncle told me he thought I was ready and he turned his company over to me. I was so happy to follow in his footsteps. As the years went by I was offered a chance to move to Arizona. I gladly relocated to the “Valley of the Sun” and soon established my business here in 2010.
I am happily married to my beautiful wife, Heather. We have been blessed with a son, Jordan, born in December of 2016. Having the love and support of my family is so important. I am grateful for them. My wish for you is that you find your perfect fit and create a fabulous life together. And let me help you get started off the right way with a perfect wedding and reception!
I love this craft for many reasons and the number one reason is you! Being a part of a couple’s most special day is a huge honor and privilege to me. And when I see the smiles on the faces of my couple–when they tell me how grateful they are for my service–it really is worth the investment of time and energy I give to ensure every wedding is personal and customized.
Speaking of investment, I’ve also made consistent upgrades through the years to the latest and greatest technology available. I know that to get the best results you have to start with the best equipment. If you’d like more information about the equipment and gear I will use for your special day, just ask. I love to talk tech!
Another way that I invest in my business is by investing in myself. I regularly attend workshops, DJ conferences and training. This helps me grow as a professional and keeps me up-to-date on the latest trends, best practices and techniques. Taking the time to continue to learn and grow allows me to provide the very best experience possible to my couples.

Marc and I came in contact with Christopher in the beginning stages of our wedding planning. After we interviewed a handful of companies, Chris caught our attention immediately with his quick response to our initial email. He went out of his way to meet with us at our venue to get a visual of what we were looking for before he gave us a proposal. Christopher stayed in communication with my mother-in-law in surprising Marc and I with a BEAUTIFUL slide show! He included way more than what we expected! Approximately 5 weeks to our wedding date Christopher once again went out of his way to attend a final meeting with all of the other vendors that were going to be a part of Marc and I’s wedding. On the wedding day itself, Christopher was amazing! He truly showed his skills as a Master of Ceremonies and DJ. He truly managed the evening with his microphone skills and had our friends and family dancing until the final last dance. One thing that my husband really wanted to THANK Christopher for is including all the Italian music hits that he grew up listening to. Christopher will be truly recommended to all of friends and family. Also, CONGRATULATIONS Chris and Heather on your wedding! 🙂Jennifer & Marc Santuccio
Chris was very knowledgeable and easily accessible. Whenever we had questions or wanted to sit down to discuss our wedding he was quick to respond and always made time for us. His customer service is unparalleled! We got so many compliments about what an amazing DJ we had. He is great about reading the crowd and playing music to get the party going!Chelsea & Evan Nemchampkin
