Also, This post is the first in my new series: Charleston wedding vendors! Since COVID-19 has caused almost all weddings and events to be rescheduled or cancelled, I have decided to help out my fellow Charleston wedding vendors by featuring them on my blog! I’ve sent them a series of questions to answer and I’m posting their answers here.

My main goal is to help couples find vendors in the Charleston area easier by looking through my blog series.

I will have all kinds of vendors featured from wedding planners to wedding catering. So our first vendor being highlighted is Bryan the DJ!

I had the honor to work with Bryan at Christina and Clif’s wedding at The Historic Rice Mill this past December. He has such a fun energy! The room was never silent and the dance floor was never empty! Here is what Bryan had to say:

Your Business Name & Your Name:

Bryan the DJ – Bryan Mahanes

Tell us a little about yourself:

Bryan Mahanes is Bryan the DJ. Performing and entertaining for over 1,000 weddings all over the Southeast.

Bryan is the MOST EXPERIENCED DJ performing for high end, boutique weddings in the area. His DJ skill and technique are tried-and-true, and he consistently receives 5-star reviews from his clients. Making people dance and enjoy themselves at his events are second nature to him as an artist. His passion for mixing and DJ’ing live is unparalleled as well as his energetic, infectious personality and excitement for his craft.

Bryan also performs live instrumental guitar for his client’s ceremonies and cocktail hours. As a classically trained guitarist/musician, Bryan’s musical career spans two decades and encompasses an incredible array of experience performing live for all types of events. Bryan uses looping technology to create beautiful renditions of contemporary music favorites. This incredible addition to his DJ services makes him the unmistakably best hire as a wedding entertainer.

Bryan has DJ’d for almost 20 years. He finds that his talent perfectly aligns itself with the emotion and energy that culminate on the night of his client’s weddings receptions. His passion for this industry is immense, and he spends his weeks managing OtherBrother Entertainment, an award-winning entertainment agency focused on the Wedding Industry in Charleston, SC.

How would you describe your style?

Eclectic, Unique, Energetic and SO MUCH FUN!

What do you love most about working in weddings?

I love the energy and love and passion that people bring to weddings.

I feel that when people attend weddings, they bring the best part of themselves to the event. And what I LOVE, is helping them express themselves! And bring it to the dancefloor! To share their best dance moves with incredibly unique group of people that are all celebrating this forming of a new family in the world!

What advice would you give to your couples who are preparing for their wedding day?

Be yourselves! There is NO right or wrong way to have a wedding. It’s all about relaxing and having fun. Of course, bring your style and ideas and dreams and visions to the table, but never get overwhelmed by the details. It’s all about celebrating with your closest family and friends and that’s what’s most important!

What are your favorite wedding trends right now?

Live music combined with a DJ! Also, photobooths are still a classic trend.

Anything else you would like to share?

I am so grateful to be working in this industry and with all the amazing vendors that I get to share these experiences with. And of course, with all of the couples I have worked with and all of my upcoming wedding couples, thank you thank you, congrats. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
