A good DJ can make or break the festive atmosphere at a wedding; one wrong spin of the turntable can clear a dance floor in seconds flat and a bad DJ can quickly turn a rocking party into one that's done before the cake's been cut. These San Francisco DJs earn rave reviews for their abilities to MC the events, pick the perfect playlists, and keep the dance floors packed until the very end.
Heart of Gold DJs
This all-women crew of music enthusiasts-turned DJs is all about the music. No tacky props, cheesy line dances, or other gimmicks (unless, of course, you're into that). Their focus is on working with the bride and groom to get to know their personal tastes, and creating a perfect playlist that will keep the whole family dancing. They'll also mic and provide music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. Read real brides' reviews here!
All Ears DJ
Run by experienced DJ and professional musician Richard Gintowt, All Ears DJ offers everything from acoustic ceremony music to MCing and custom playlists for the reception. While he's staunchly against the cheesy antics employed by many DJs, he has a knack for getting everyone up and dancing. And, unlike many DJs, he doesn't cap his starting rate at four hours, but offers a flat rate that includes service for as many hours as needed. Read real brides' reviews here!
Love in the Mix
The DJs at Love in the Mix aren't just there to play music; as any good DJ should, they also make sure guests are aware of the sequence of events (announcing things like dinner and the bouquet toss) and help organize the other vendors. In short: their job is to make everything about your day perfect. Their DJs start with an in-depth questionnaire to help plan the timeline of your day and create a playlist that reflects the mood you want to convey. In addition to DJ services, they offer lighting services, video display, and photo booth rental. Read real brides' reviews here!

Boutique DJs and Entertainment
With experience at venues such as AT&T Park, the San Francisco Ferry Building, and Napa's Calistoga Ranch, the DJs at Boutique DJs and Entertainment are no strangers to lavish special events. They've spun tunes for parties hosted by Facebook, Google, the San Francisco Giants, and Christina Aguilera, and some of them have even performed at Coachella and Outside Lands. Though they specialize in club-style DJ services, they play a wide variety of music, from the classics and top 40 to special mashups and remixes. They also offer dance floor lights, video projection, and sound services and music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. Read real brides' reviews here!

DJ and musician Brandon Scott Bosch is a one-man operation so confident in his services that he offers a money-back guarantee. Services include all sound and lighting equipment (such as strobes and lasers) and mics for speeches. A singer songwriter, he can also offer guitar accompaniment for ceremonies or cocktail hour.
