It’s Your Night’s “non-cheesy” approach and their passion for making “one-of-a-kind” events, to match the personalities of couples, have put them on the wish list of brides planning their big day! Their goal is to engage guests without playing songs like the “chicken dance” so they end up staying until the very end. It’s Your Night also offers event decor lighting such as floral pin-spotting, color room washes, and more to really customize the look of your wedding and make it one of a kind.

William has been providing entertainment for wedding receptions and other special events since 1998. His experience includes many years as a radio personality on one of Dallas/Ft. Worth’s top radio stations, 94.9 KLTY.


He has integrated into his business philosophy a high level of organization, attention to detail, integrity, personal care, and interest in his clients.

As a Wedding DJ, his goal is to make everything from the initial planning process to the last dance at the reception less stressful and relaxing for couples and their families. “It’s important to me that everyone has fun along the way and I’m committed to making everything run smoothly throughout your entire event!” says William.

Impress your guests in a mesmerizing cloud of mist with our interactive, high-performance liquid nitrogen dessert and cocktail station.

Frost 321 creates the smoothest, most delectable ice creams and frozen cocktails right before your eyes at -321°F.  Our proprietary process allows for freshly frozen ice cream, sorbets, and cocktails in under 3 minutes.

The genius of liquid nitrogen (as “techie” as it sounds), is that the instant freezing process allows us to bring seasonal flavors to life unlike any other process. With no fillers or preservatives, our custom flavors highlight nature’s very best. The freshest fruits. The best chocolates. The creamiest milks. There is no limit to the possible combinations.

A Mardi Gras themed party?  Imagine Hurricane-inspired cocktails for your guests. A Summer ice cream social to thank your staff?  Our signature ice cream sundae bar topped with seasonal fruits and our gourmet Texas pralines and drunken cherries. A Monte Carlo themed casino night?  A whiskey inspired ice cream cart served table side.

Don’t let your guests miss out on this MISTifying ice-cream and cocktail experience.  Any creation, any location, every occasion – we’ll make your next event the most memorable event of the year.
