Rob Alberti’s Event Services – Wedding Lighting, DJ Entertainment & Photo Booth Rentals Near Me

Press Release Hartford Wedding DJ: Did you know that we provide much more than our DJ entertainment?  It’s our job to learn about your wedding plans and wedding inspiration images and help you with all your wedding needs and desires – from wedding DJ, Ceremony microphones, wedding lighting, dance lighting, and photo booth rentals.  Maybe you already have a wedding band, but still need ceremony microphones or you just need string lighting in your sailcloth tent? We can do as much or as little as you need.



Our stomping grounds tend to be The Berkshires, Hartford, The CT Shoreline, Newport and Western MA but we DJ throughout the MA/CT/RI areas throughout the wedding season. We are doing more weddings in the Hudson Valley NY and Westchester County NY as we expand our business.

1. Getting To Know Our Wedding Couples

We quote well over 1,000 weddings each year so we need to check our availability for your wedding date and confirm that we can support all your needs with our wedding DJs, lighting technicians and gear. With nearly twenty of us on staff, we can handle just about any size event. We will put together a rough quote to get the conversation started. Your wedding needs will be quoted through our online quoting system so that everything is clear and concise for your review. You can even review images reflecting your wedding vision so we can make sure we are on the right track to creating that perfect wedding day for you.

We may have multiple DJs and a large staff, but you will always be working 1-on-1 with your wedding DJ. We like to refer to our unique process as having the stability of a larger company and the personality of a boutique wedding service. We always cater to your needs.

2. Planning Your Wedding Should Be More Than A Google Search

Planning a wedding shouldn’t be like shopping on Amazon. It should be personal so you can get a feel for all your wedding vendors. We suggest that we arrange a quick call with our wedding couples so that we can get to know each other at this point in your wedding plans.   We can figure out if we are a good fit for both your wedding reception needs and wedding budget.

Want to talk with your wedding DJ before you lock in your wedding date? No problem – we can arrange a phone meeting, video call or personal meeting.

3. Comparing Wedding Vendors

Now it’s up to you.  You will need to compare and review all the quotes you’ve gathered from other wedding DJs and lighting designers.   Not everyone will be able to meet all your needs or will make the cut as you review their online testimonials, social media accounts, and past work.   This is where you get to weed out wedding vendors that you are not interested in working with. Not every wedding DJ will be able to provide you with an amazing experience at your wedding reception, so be sure to get to know your wedding DJ before securing your wedding date with the cheapest DJ you can find.

“Couldn’t have asked for the better company or DJ to work with. DJ Pat Birrell is AMAZING! He does such a great job seamlessly mixing one song into the next for nonstop dancing all night long. I never left the dance floor! He did exactly as we asked for… You have to go with Rob Alberti!!!” Valley View Farm Wedding DJ – Casey


4. The Bitterness Of Poor Quality Remains Long After The Sweetness Of Low Price Is Forgotten

As always, you get what you pay for.  That is clearly present in the wedding industry – an $800.00 DJ will not be anything in comparison to a typical $1600 wedding disc jockey.  Thinking that a $200 speaker sounds as good as an $800 speaker or that a $200 entry-level wireless mic is as reliable as a $1400 digital microphone is just foolish.  You deserve the best at your wedding.  

A wedding DJ and Master of Ceremonies will either make or break the success of your reception.  It’s not just the gear, but their experience and skill level as MC and DJ that needs to be considered.    We highly recommend that you hear your DJ do announcements or introductions and hear an audio recording of their music set to see what you like or dislike about prospective wedding DJs. 



5. A Better DJ/MC For Your Wedding

You have it much easier now to check out potential wedding DJs.  Look at their Facebook page, Blog and Instagram posts. Are they experienced at weddings or are they just a Karaoke DJ doing weddings on the side?  It will be very evident if they have the experience to handle your wedding with a review of their online presence. 

6. Lock-In Your Wedding Date Before It’s Too Late

Now, you are confident that Rob Alberti’s Event Services is the right choice for your wedding, you can simply e-sign your agreement to secure your wedding date with us.  You can make your online deposit for your convenience through the same portal. All our communication and paperwork will be done right here in one place for easy reference.  We will send you a receipt and then we can get started on working on details for your wedding day.

“Jesse was our DJ and he was absolutely fantastic! He was so helpful and was very easy to communicate with while we were planning our wedding. The playlist was spectacular and everyone danced all night” The Society Room of Hartford Wedding DJ – Nicole


7. Wedding Planning And Your Final Wedding Details

About 3 months prior to your wedding – we will reach out to you and let you know it’s time to start talking details for your wedding.  We’ll send you links to our ONLINE PLANNING TOOLS so you can start working on your homework. For your convenience, we can do all our planning online, via email, video chat or in-person or even schedule a site visit with you to walk the space and work on your custom wedding lighting options.  We’ll guide you with our years of wedding experience to create a smooth flowing wedding day with maximum emotional impact and maximum dance time in mind.

Of course, you can send us links to your Spotify playlists (and NO PLAY lists).

8. Your Wedding Itinerary and Questionnaire

We will take all our notes and online planning details and type up an itinerary for you to share with your caterer, photographer or other wedding vendors.  Every couple of weeks, we will touch base with you to work on filling in any missing details or make changes as needed. The week prior, we’ll do a final touch base with you to make sure there are no other last-minute wedding changes that we need to incorporate.  

Don’t Forget To Reserve One Of Our Photo Booths – Interactive fun for all ages!

9. Wedding Checklist And Your Wedding Day

On your wedding day, we will have our checklist of necessary gear (and full backup) with us.  If we are doing custom lighting for your wedding – many times we do the installation days prior.  For most weddings, we will arrive 1-2 hours prior to guest arrival to set up and do sound checks. We will be dressed with music playing as your guests arrive.  We will have separate sound systems for your ceremony and reception and even separate social hour so that we are not moving gear and resetting while guests are there.  That makes for much smoother transitions from space to space at your reception and less chaos for your guests to experience.

” We are so happy that we went with Rob for our wedding! We used the DJ, photobooth, and uplighting services, and everything was amazing. Rob was so great to work with. He was quick to respond to emails, listened to what we wanted, and helped us make decisions when we were having difficulty!” The Riverhouse Haddam CT Wedding DJ – Shannon & Shawn


10. It’s Time For Happy Guests With Tired Feet

Get ready to dance the night away – we will utilize the music and feel that you were looking for in each segment of your wedding reception.  Setting different tones for cocktails, dinner, and dancing is crucial in keeping guests engaged and not bored. (Remind me to tell you the story of one of our past wedding couples that insisted on having the musical trio play for their ceremony, cocktails AND dinner.  By the time we started to play after dinner, half the guests had already left)

Don’t Forget – Lighting can add so much to your wedding reception and will make your wedding photos so much better. Please inquire about our many lighting options for your wedding reception

11. Your Wedding Day Soundtrack

We want to engage as many of your guests as possible on the dance floor so we always suggest keeping in mind the age range of your guests.  Playing Lizzo at the beginning of dancing can scare away your older guests. We suggest you keep the first hour of dancing more adult contemporary and appeal to both the young and young at heart.  After that, we can get a bit more Top 40 or Old School as you with, but just don’t scare away half your guests before they get a chance to dance a bit. This is another reason we always suggest dancing between courses to appease your older guests earlier in the evening.  It gives you more dance time overall and helps us get to your favorite tunes that much quicker.

12. The Last Dance And Wedding Success

Once your last song has faded out and your guests have stopped clapping and thanking you for inviting them to this amazing wedding, go and enjoy your honeymoon.  Just don’t forget to leave us a rave review online when you return. Congratulations – your wedding reception will be something your friends and family will be talking about for years to come!
