Hi, I'm DJ Josh.

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

I’m excited for the opportunity to get to know you and learn more about your upcoming event!

In the meantime, here’s a little bit more about me …

DJ Josh

Experience

Highlight Weddings & Events is a new company, but I have lots of experience and training in the industry – 5 years and over 60 weddings!

When I’m not working with clients to create their unique wedding that will leave them and their guests with great memories, I keep my skills sharp DJing at local Destin-area nightclubs doing what nightclub DJs do best, BRING THE PARTY! And while weddings are my main focus, I have also filled roles at other public/private events. Some of those events include DJ/MCing the University of West Florida’s Dance Marathon and Café Thirty-A’s Christmas Charity Ball, MCing for Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation’s Concerts in the Park, and more!

With such a wide experience at different types of events and venues, I’ve learned that no two events are the same – just like the people in attendance! I understand the value of being flexible. That flexibility has made me an asset for any event I am a part of and has allowed me to form great relationships with other wedding and event professionals in the area!

Communication is my Superpower

I’m going to take the time to know your love story. When you say “I do,” I will have a keen understanding of your personalities as a couple, your likes/dislikes and your special requests – so that I can incorporate those things into your wedding in a seamless way. I’m also going to know what song(s) NOT to play. It doesn’t matter how many times your Aunt Betty requests it. But I don’t just stop there … I will also communicate with your event planner, your venue, and any other important vendors or key players to make sure we are all on the same page. All you have to do is relax and enjoy your day!

My Style

As a professional DJ, I have an extensive catalog of over 15,000 tracks that covers any era and genre you can think of. I certainly have my own favorites, but I realize when I DJ/MC any event it is not about me. That day is about highlighting the newlywed couple and their guests.

Often when people think of a DJ/MC, they think of someone who makes the party about the DJ: always on the mic and playing music they like. That is not my style. I believe a good MC directs a seamless flow of events but plays a secondary role to the guests of honor, their family, and friends. I believe a good DJ has an idea of songs that will work well but pays attention to the guests and adjusts their song selections as the night unfolds.

My Favorite Thing About Weddings

It’s totally about you – but I get to be a part of making it magical! I enjoy getting to know each couple personally, finding out what is important to them, and making it happen on their big day – for a unique wedding that leaves guests thinking, “Oh, that was totally them!”

Fun Facts About DJ Josh
  • Oldest of 8
  • Best wedding ever attended was my own, December 7, 2013 (sure, I’m biased but can you blame me?)
  • Favorite cake is Black Forest cake made by my mom. My groom’s cake was a Black Forest cake, but I never even had a chance to taste it before it was gone!
  • Favorite wedding song is Boogie Shoes by KC & The Sunshine Band. It’s a song that everyone is familiar with but that most people don’t hear often.
  • Favorite line dance is The Wobble by V.I.C. The Cupid Shuffle is a close second!
  • Favorite part of wedding is toasts, because you never know what you are going to get!
I love when couples want to add something “outside the box” that is unique to themselves!
