About Us

I’ve just returned from setting up and finalizing a few details for the wedding I’m involved in tomorrow. Less than a year ago I didn’t know who either Mike or Tegan were. Through a colleague of mine, they received my telephone number and called. Since deciding to include me in their wedding reception, I have come to know these two as if we’d been friends forever. Their excitement and joy about the day — now less than 24 hours away — is contagious and beautiful. I am so fortunate to call this my work.

Why I mention them, is because this is who I am. I’m the person who lives with a smile on his face and thinks that sharing excitement and laughter with others are maybe the best things going. Mike and Tegan were not afraid to try something new, and have put their all into this day. It has been so fantastic to watch the plans develop, especially after the many hours that have been put in together. When this journey of mine all started in 1997, I had no idea that I would be given the opportunity to have such an impact on so many wonderful weddings.

It was then with great pride in November 2013 (through much encouragement by many of my amazing wedding couples), that I succeeding in the challenging application to become Canada’s second MC/DJ to earn the prestigious and international designation of Wedding Entertainment Director®.  The designation, as maintained at that time by the WED Guild®, exists to create an industry standard of wedding entertainment with an exceedingly high benchmark of quality and service.  

I wish to extend a special thanks to those who were a part of this journey with me, those who have brought me into their lives through their weddings in the past, many of whom I now call friends rather than “clients”.  You all mean so much to me and I dedicate my efforts to each and every one of you in encouraging more DJs to strive for higher standards, much like the WED Guild® encourages.

Now to tell you what you thought was going to be on this page. I was born David Jerome Ternier and am married to the beautiful Kathryn.  I love dark chocolate, equally dark coffee, travel, sunshine, time spent with friends and family, and silence. My favourite colour is orange and my favourite food is quite literally something I’ve never tried before. I am also madly in love with our two amazing daughters, Kiana & Marika.


The Night was Absolutely Perfect

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did planning our wedding reception. The night was absolutely perfect for Colin & me. You are very talented & have fantastic ideas to make the night one of a kind. We couldn’t have done it without your expertise!

We had so many guests think

I will have a difficult time attending weddings with DJs who stand around & just play music. You were so energized and amazing.

We could not have been happier with the way everything turned out. Dave, you have an amazing personality and love for your work which really shows. We had so many guests think Dave was a close friend which is exactly how he made us feel. The help we received throughout the entire process was amazing and we HIGHLY recommend Special Request Weddings!

It took so much stress off

Throughout our whole experience, you maintained professionalism, but had fun with it. Without hiring you, we would not have come up with half of the ideas you helped us with. The games, music, introductions, and stories are what made our wedding a success and memorable. It took so much stress off of us in hiring a disc jockey!

Master of Ceremonies

In addition to my role as the master of ceremonies at weddings, during non-peak seasons, I can also be found providing master of ceremonies services for many different types of events.

If you are looking for a MarBecca trained master of ceremonies for your special event, please use the contact form to check my availability.


The popularity of this Manitoba tradition remains as strong as ever. To those in Saskatchewan and other provinces, it is still a very foreign concept though! Your wedding party should be given a lot of creative control for your pre-wedding social.

My favourites to work with (and often the most successful!) are themed socials and couples who like to incorporate different ideas into their events.

Corporate & Community

Each year I have the pleasure of working with a few companies on their Christmas Parties and Staff or Customer Appreciation functions. Community involvement is also very important to me.

There are a number of local organizations that I work with to help them reach their goals in providing the community with the support they need.


While this hobby tried to take over a few years ago, it has now been sidelined, as time simply has not allowed me to push it to the artistic levels that I had wished. I loved every special moment of it, but I do regret to inform that I am not photographing weddings any longer.

I do have a dream to pursue a very unique style of couples portraiture one day though…
