Richy Roy of Weyburn, Sask., is being recognized as the province’s best wedding DJ.

“Not a lot of awards are given to entertainers, so yeah, when I get my trophy it’s going on my mantle at home,” Roy said.

Roy takes a different approach than most by preforming magic during cocktail hour, twisting balloons up for kids and playing games to warm up the crowd.

“We’ve been trying to change the industry, there’s a small handful of us across North America that are integrating things to make it a better experience for our brides and grooms,” Roy said.

“We coordinate the wedding, we will do emcee duties, write customize scripts and we’ll bring the lighting.”

Roy admits the award is special, but seeing everyone happy at the reception is what matters most.
