McKinney Cotton Mill Wedding DJ & Uplighting

Jenny contacted me about 6 weeks before her upcoming wedding looking for a DJ & master of ceremonies. After exchanging a few emails, we set up a time to meet. Mark & Jenny were very easy going and gave me a ton of great info about what they were looking for. Shortly after meeting, they let me know they wanted to reserve my services, so we quickly put things in motion since the wedding was coming up so quickly.

Many of my clients book 6-12 months before their wedding, but I have had bookings as little as 2 weeks before a wedding. So, while getting handling all the planning in 6 weeks is a bit tight, we were still able to get everything done in plenty of time.

The ceremony took place inside the Cotton Mill immediately prior to the reception. Once the ceremony was done, the guests had cocktails while the room was flipped for the reception. When everything was ready, we did the introductions followed by the first dance and a group picture. I have seen pictures like this before, but had never had one done at a wedding I was DJing. So it was cool getting to see that and how the picture turned out.

After dinner, the dance floor officially opened to a great crowd of dancers. Other than a quick break for the cake, the dance floor was very full throughout the evening. This was a fun crowd who danced to just about everything I played.

This was our first time working at the Cotton Mill with Tina and everything went smoothly. This was also our first time working with photographer Celina Gomez. I really enjoyed working with Celina and she was kind enough to share some pictures from the wedding with me. I thought they turned out great and look forward to working with Celina again!

Dallas Wedding DJ & Lighting Review

We love getting new reviews on WeddingWire from our clients. This review is from Ashley Rogers. We had the pleasure of providing DJ & lighting services for Michael & Ashley’s wedding at the Tower Club earlier this year. Thank you to Michael & Ashley for the great review!


Here is the text of the review given for Tower Club DJ & Lighting by Discovery DJ on

Jim did such a great job with our wedding. He was so responsive during the planning of our wedding and was completely professional. His online planning system was fun and easy to use, and made me feel like the process was very organized. I would definitely recommend Discovery DJs!
