Exclusive Event Experiences

Painted visions become a beautiful reality. “Above and beyond” is our only goal. Striving to be different and continually raising the industry bar for someone that craves a company that treats them like family and not another number.

Your experience with David Charles Productions will be exclusive and heart-felt. Our events create emotion — and we feel it, give it, and understand it. We are here to help you. This is our passion. It’s what we’ve done for over 20 years.



Creating memorable weddings and events with true passion and award winning experience.





Every wedding has a flow... from the ceremony to cocktails to dinner to dancing. An experienced DJ and Master of Ceremonies knows how to honor traditions, embrace new ideas, and respectfully emcee your reception to keep your guests happy and the event moving along.

Ceremony. Every important word will be captured with professional equipment and the proper amount of speakers based on location and number of guests.

Cocktail Hour. Music will be lively, audible and comfortable and set the tone for an evening of celebration.

Dinner Hour. Introductions, directions, toasts and anything in between will be carefully and professionally timed, as well as properly introduced, in order to engage your guests and capture attention for speakers.

Dancing. Not all DJ’s are created equal and nowhere is this more evident than on the dance floor. Our experienced DJ's have a vast knowledge of music and the expertise to read a crowd. Until the very last song, music will be structured to keep your guests having fun on the dance floor.


Our team of award-winning filmmakers will capture your wedding or event from all angles, using state-of-the-art audio recording equipment so a single word isn’t missed or muffled. Your movie will be edited with patience and an artistic eye to create a 7-12 minute feature film and a 3-4 minute highlight reel. A story you will never get tired of watching!

What We Offer: Full-day audio and video coverage, a feature film edit, a highlight reel edit, online hosting through Vimeo, and the raw video files on a hard drive.

Surround sound speakers provide the best acoustic response in order for all of your guests to hear announcements, blessings, toasts and speeches and are standard equipment for all of our events.


Lighting design should create energy, while at the same time, enhance how you feel about what you are seeing. Whether bold and theatrical or soft and simple, we will create it. We will customize all of your lighting needs for indoor, outdoor and tented events.

What We Offer: String bulb lighting, patterned or textured projecting lighting, spot lighting, floral pin spot lighting, soft white up lighting, wireless LEDs, and band lighting.

Trust us to expertly provide any high-quality audio/visual services needed to amplify your event, including video and slideshow creation, projection and TV live broadcast.


Everyone loves a photo booth! Our fresh approach to this classic favorite will entertain and impress guests in a unique way and create lasting memories.


Let’s plan something great.

What Everyone’s Saying

“Highly recommended!! David DJ'd our October, 2018, downtown Milwaukee wedding, and also provided our videography and lighting services. We first met with David during our wedding planning process and immediately knew he would be perfect as our DJ. He listened to our input, and provided a hands-on process in customizing the perfect music selection for our wedding. He was always available by phone or email to discuss details. When we decided we wanted a videographer, we knew that we wanted to use David's team. We know that the wedding video will be amazing too. At the wedding, David's energy was infectious. He knows how to 'read the room' to keep everyone partying until the end of our wedding. Many of our guests said how awesome our DJ was :) All in all, if you want an awesome DJ who will really listen and customize your music selection, we would highly recommend David Charles Productions!!”

Vicki J. Oct 2018

“David went above and beyond on our wedding. From day one he made me feel comfortable; he fully understood the type of vibe we were going for. Thankful we were able to book David for our wedding up north. Music and lighting truly sets the tone for any occasion. David worked with us on a personal level and made our wedding weekend better than we could have imagined.”

Amanda B. Nov 2018

“Excellent to work with and provides fast communication. The professional recommendations are extremely helpful and understands everything. Would definitely request again for other functions even other than my wedding.”
