Megan’s approach to DJing weddings, "I love DJing weddings because I firmly believe the music & the DJ are key to making a memorable event! Without a doubt, everyone remembers a killer dance session & my aim is always to flood the dance floor. Weddings are special because guests come ready to celebrate, but also tricky with a wide range of demographics. My approach is mix genres, play the hits, and push the boundaries, as I want each party to be unique. I also collaborate w/ my clients to create a unique cocktail & dinner hour that can personalize a wedding while creating a specific vibe."
Megan is passionate about using music to personalize each event. Her goal is to create and play a soundscape that communicates her client's overall vision. Megan is passionate about traveling and has visited 24 countries to date. She is recognized in Chicago for her leadership and training. Megan also received her Masters in Social and Emotional Intelligence at Wright Graduate University in 2016.
