What’s in Your Kit – Vendor Spotlight – DJ and Bartender

It’s week 4 of our vendor spotlight series. For the last several weeks we’ve been focusing on some of the finer elements of a wedding. This week though, we’re ready to PARTY. Some of the best memories I have of weddings come from the reception. So this week, I sat down with Obehi the DJ, and Tabby from Tabby’s Bartending to learn more about what goes into creating the perfect party atmosphere at a wedding.

Before getting into their answers, here are the questions we asked them.

  • What are your must-have items in your kit on a wedding day?
  • What’s your favorite item in your kit?
  • Is there anything you carry with you that you’ve never needed but you just can’t take out of your bag?
  • What’s the weirdest thing you carry?
  • Do you have any funny stories to share about how you’ve used what you had in your kit to McGuyver your way out of an emergency on a wedding day?
  • How long does it take you to prep and pack for a wedding?
  • How can couples get in touch with you? (Social media, website, phone, email, etc.)

Someone should give Obehi a medal for saving the wedding party and I can’t wait to read Tabby’s book. Thanks to Obehi and Tabby for taking the time to share the details of their kits with us.

 

Next week we’ll be visiting Bloom by Doyle and talking about what goes into prepping floral arrangements for a wedding.
