First, as has been in the news the past couple weeks, Jerika Bolen passed away on 9/22/2016. Exactly 2 months since we had the honor of providing the entertainment for her prom. This past Saturday Jerika had her funeral, which was kept private in lieu of all the attention her story had received. Sadly, we were not able to attend due to our commitments to our couples. Everyone here at SoundFire DJ sends our deepest condolences to Jen Bolen along
SoundFire DJ would like to congratulate Dan & Emily Elliott on their wedding 9/24/16! It was an absolute pleasure to work with them, and we’ll definitely be staying in touch. I love it when we not only have satisfied couples, but new friends as well!
This isn’t the only blog on this website! We have our blog entitled, “Wedding Pro Tips” which hundreds of Northeast Wisconsin couples have found very helpful. However, since it’s not on the top level of our page, not everyone finds it easily. Also, we like to update our guests and clients with news besides our helpful wedding pro tips, and doing that under a blog titled “Wedding Pro Tips” doesn’t accurately describe content other than that. Therefore, we are starting
Another upgrade post! We love our couples, and want to continue bringing our best in service & skill. By having the best tools at our disposal, it’s one more way we make it an amazing night!

While not directly wedding related, I wanted to write about this a little here on the blog. Yes, we do events like this at least once a year, and this has certainly been the most high profile of any of them. The reason I want to talk about it is because it has a lot to do with what SoundFire DJ’s philosophy has been for a few years now – and that is it’s all about meeting our client’s
A clean setup that allows you to see the DJ work their magic. Notice the pristine wire management (with over 70 ft of wiring used to connect power and control cables to the lighting alone). This picture was taken shortly after setup had been completed. The extra transport bags on stage were removed prior to guest arrival for an extremely clean appearance. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback over the last year about our lighting panels in our Premier

Prime Wedding Season Kick Off Prime wedding season has already begun and is going well! We have lots of events, final meetings, and more on our calendar coming up. I feel truly blessed to be a part of every one of our couples’ wedding day. It’s an honor and a privilege serving every single one of you, and I want to thank those who have had their wedding already this year, and for those yet to come! I also want
It’s that time of year again. The time when most couples have been recently engaged, and are on the path to begin planning their wedding. This is a new experience for most couples, and they don’t know where to start, or the big question on their minds are usually, “How much does everything cost?” The days of tradition where the family-of-the-bride funds the event seems to be fading too with more couples funding their wedding themselves. Also, the expectations at weddings has
So, we have an appropriate number for our guest list to reflect our budget. Now what do we do? Now we allocate the different portions of our budget! As a disclaimer, the following allocations are mere suggestions based on our research, and experience helping couples plan their weddings. They are not hard & fast rules. We will use the dollar amount and figures from PART 1 of this blog post. We will even give the breakdown for the “Tight
