It’s Spotlight Day, where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding vendors and share the stories behind these companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
Hiring the right wedding vendors is so important on your wedding day. The DJ sets the mood for the whole event.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce this week’s venue spotlight, Sebastian of iRock Your Party.
When people ask “what do you do?” how do you answer?
We put our heart into every single celebration that we do. We combine technology, passion, and attention to detail to create amazing experiences that will last forever. We are your DJs, MCs, but most importantly, your biggest fans. We want your day to be amazing, we want you and your guests to have fun, and we want to have fun with you guys as well. We do WHATEVER it takes to create those moments that everybody will always talk about.
What did you do before you did this?
iRock Your Party has a team full of people that have worked in the event industry for a long time. The owners Dani, Sebass, and Santi have done multiple things including catering, photography and even entertainment in their country of origin, Colombia.
When and how did you get into the wedding industry?
Sebass, our main DJ, started doing events in the States about eight years ago when he started working for one of the top companies in Central Florida where he was able to learn all the ins and outs of the industry.
How long would you say you’ve been doing what you do today?
Our beginning takes us back to Colombia, where we started doing events almost 10 years ago!
How did your work evolve to get you to where you are today?
We worked events in Colombia for around three and a half years.
What is your favorite thing about what you do? What’s your WHY?
Tell us about your most memorable event so far and why it was.
A few years ago, I was supposed to be part of a wedding celebration. A few weeks before the wedding, the bride had to call the wedding off since she, unfortunately, had broken up with her boyfriend. Instead, she decided to have a ”family celebration” because she had already spent a lot of money and time planning her wedding.
The family celebration went great, but the actual memorable event happened two years after that when I was lucky to be part of her wedding after she had found the love of her life. It was amazing to see this girl get over her old relationship, find real love, and get married surrounded by friends and family.
What’s the best part of your job?
Everything but the setup! (Just kidding!) The best is sharing a day that people you don’t even know want to make you part of. People that trust your vision enough to bring you on board so you can help them have that amazing day that they’ve dreamed of.
What motivates you to do this every day?
Passion, heart, and results. We go for that, nothing like seeing your ideas and vision come together in a wedding celebration. Nothing like working super hard so the couple can be happiest they’ve ever been and realizing that every effort was worth it.
What is the best compliment you’ve received from your clients?
A couple changing their wedding date just so I could be part of their celebration!
How did you decide on the name of your company?
We put a lot of thought into this. We are young, passionate, dynamic, and wanted a name that showed what we were all about, which is rocking dance floors and creating amazing memories.
What is important for clients to know about your company before they book you?
We are not your typical standard DJs.
We care about the experience, so we make sure all details are covered. That’s why we might ask you a lot of questions to make sure we understand you, your loved ones, and the type of crowd that we are playing for. Everything matters: where were they born, raised, where they went to college, what radio or Pandora station they listen to.
We will get as much information as we can to provide that experience that the newlyweds are looking for.
What is the most unique service/product you offer?
We offer a lot of different services, but one of our most popular ones is a live set with a percussionist where we bring that ”live” element to their party. This is usually a great idea if the couple thinks that their guests might need a little help to get on the dance floor and have a good time.
What types of events do you specialize in?
We specialize in weddings and corporate. We do a lot of different events, but weddings are what we do best!
Use THREE words to describe your business.
Fun, passionate, engaging.
What makes your business stand out from others in your category?
How much we care!
We are not just saying it, our couples can tell that we are in this for the long run and because we love it. We don’t see a wedding like “another one.” We see it as a once in a lifetime opportunity.
You only get one day to get it right, and we will put all our heart and soul to make sure this happens.
Tell us about your favorite type of engaged couple.
Fun, young-ish, modern, easy-going and especially party rockstars. It doesn’t matter how you dance, or what do you dance to, we will get you on the dance floor and will rock your wedding out!
Name three unique venues that you enjoy working at and why.
Margaritaville: This brand new property takes relaxation and style to a whole new level. We recently did their employee party and loved being able to tour the whole place beforehand. We enjoy the architecture, the customer service, and the chill vibe that this place offers.
Heathrow Country Club: Amazing views, great team, and a beautiful ballroom where anyone can host a celebration!
Paradise Cove: C’mon, it’s literally a hidden paradise. This waterfront property has a super versatile layout, an awesome tiki bar, and a beautiful ceremony space right in front of the lake. We love this venue and always look forward to work there!
What some of their previous couples had to say….
“Let me tell you… Sebass ROCKED the house. He’s very confident as an MC and an awesome, AWESOME DJ. My guests and I partied all night, he was very smooth and knew exactly how to keep us all energized with his music. All of these, not even mentioning their really modern set up with tons of options to choose from. We booked them and decided to go with their new cold sparklers that were a massive SUCCESS! You can’t go wrong with safe indoor fireworks. Our pictures came out amazing! Please do yourself a favor and give Sebass a call, he will take your wedding to a whole new level!” – Alex & Sophia
“The team of iRock Your Party went way beyond our expectations. I would 100% recommend them to everyone. Thank you!!!! You guys rock.” – Roberto & Jenny Rivera, Ceviche Tapas Venue
“Amazing experience! iRock your party! Really rocked mine. Had the best experience with this company and my wedding will be a day to never forget and thanks to them!”- Laura, Sheraton Lake Buena Vista
