we met DJ All Music when our onsite WC took us to Tucanes for our reception. the guys came out to meet us before they introduced the bridal party (in our case, our parents) and us. I confess - I don't remember their actual names! It was all a blur at that point...
BUT never fear - it's not winging it at all!! they have a pretty detailed excel spreadsheet that you fill out with your Lomas WC ahead of time once you decide to book them. You choose all of your playlists for dinner, and for the reception. The spreadsheet includes any of the announcements you want made - introductions when you/your bridal party walk in, cake cutting, announcing the father/daughter dance, garter toss, etc. It also asks when you want each of those events to happen and then the MC will move through any of the events you have based on what you outline.
For us, it wasn't necessarily a specific time - like cake cutting - 7pm, first dance, 7:30pm, etc. Our cues were more like
"cut the cake in between the entree course and dessert course" and "first dance - after dessert is finished". So they had all of that timing set out, and it really worked well.
